Hello all, I'm toying with an idea for a new kind of survival island game, and I'm making this topic to collect information on the following:



     List of raw resources you can find (wood, ore, stone, herbs, etc)
     Crafting recipes (for example, 3x stone and 3x wood makes 1 Wooden Pick)


     Gameplay Features (hookshot, rope-bridge building, etc)
     Island Landmarks (Caves, waterfalls, and other natural landmarks)


All the ideas will be collected and posted in this topic.
Please keep in mind that I am only looking for ideas that cater to a survival island experience.
I also intend there to be a day/night cycle, and a hunger/thirst bar - keep this in mind when listing your ideas.

Hopefully we can put together a great resource for those looking to build a game like this! Thanks again!

Not really looking for Resource files like tilesets and iconsets, but more of ideas on what to find.
I've added Various Fruits and Vegetables, and Gemstones to the raw item list. Thanks =D


Edit: Decided to post resources as well.

What about a crafting recipe to make a raft to go to other smaller islands? And perhaps you can expand the island that you start off on?


My idea for the recipe would be:

6 Wooden planks which you get by chopping down trees?, 3 Rope which I have no Idea where you could get that from. Perhaps it washes up on land since people treat the ocean like garbage., Feathers?, Some type of glue substance? Mud maybe? And maybe you could only sail on the raft for so long that I would break and if you're out to sea when that happens you die?

@Yappy Monoxide Five spoiler tags? Really? -_-


@GoodSelf Have them survive on natural resources (vines as grappling hooks, rocks as weapons, etc). A recipe would be, maybe five logs to make a fire, thirty twigs and some banana leaves to make a house, then at the end of the game, like, twenty logs, five banana leaves, some sort of signal and a food supply to leave the island. But you need enough experience from building other necessities and you need to build up your food supply before you can build the raft.

Wondering if any other users have some ideas to contribute to this resource post!
If you're an artist, I can feature your tilesets/sprites here as well!  :D

@Yappy Monoxide Please stop being a troll, I don't think it's funny. The five spoiler tags in one of your most recent posts here and the ridiculous "How to get RPG Maker free" in your signature...

my question for you, before you get too deep into this, is what makes your game unique...every day there is a new survival game on Steam, we are almost flooded with choices of these games, from the childish MC or Creativerse, to the scifi Empyrion, to the just survive Dont Starve, to zombies 7 Days, to even the dinos Ark (currently one of my favorite games fyi) and so so much more. So what is going to make your RPGMaker based survival game unique amongst the crowd? Once we (more I) know this answer i can help you with ideas :) just at this second all i think of is that giant list of games and in reality not really much originality anymore.

Needs a way to get rid of Gilligan


Actually, you should definately add spring water/rain water to the list of resources.

Here is a few ideas if this is a game based around reality.


1. Different kinds of water. (salt water, ice water, hot spring, toxic water) those are things I don't see in games.


2. hostile wild animals ( wild boar, tiger, or some kind of bird)


3.for a structure (abandon pirate camp, seen you had a beach theme )


4. Lastly ( A cage or a container to hold supplies or a wild animal.)


Those are a few ideas. Hope they help.
