Robinson Crusoe: Despair Island Video
“Never any young adventurer’s misfortunes, I believe, began sooner, or continued longer than mine.”
― Daniel Defoe, Robinson Crusoe
Three centuries ago, a singular story perfectly captured the drama of shipwreck and survival, hope and redemption. That story was Robinson Crusoe. Now this timeless tale is brought to life once more in a dynamic card game, but this time you are the one who needs to survive and make it off the island.
This ancient tale it’s alive again!
In 1651 a young man leaves home for an adventure at sea. He is shipwrecked on an island, 40 miles out to sea. He spends the next 28 years on this island, gathering food, resources, and tools, and battling against insurmountable odds to stay alive. He hunts, raises animals, reads the bible, and begins to turn his focus and attention inward. He becomes a man of God, and learns to accept his fate, growing spiritually. He realizes that he has everything he needs to survive and live in peace.
Combining themes of hope, strength, and resiliency, this strategic, multi-layered game will test your skills in more ways than one, as you navigate through cannibal attacks, deadly storms, and your own inner turmoil.
