In Anchored you manage a settlement built on top of a floating island hovering above a dangerous jungle. But supplies are scarce up on the island, your settlers must venture down into the jungle to scavenge for food and resources in order to survive.
But you are not alone amongst the clouds... You must expand your settlement, upgrade your settlers and build your defenses in order to defend your island form the increasingly difficult nightly attacks.
Help your settlers fight starvation, expand and defend their island in this real-time-strategy survival game. Equip them with different gear and weapons, and combine their special abilities in order to form a combat effective group, to further increase your chances of surviving. How many nights can you survive..?

Anchored was part of a course at Uppsala University's Game Design education at Campus Gotland. The version of Anchored that is found here on itch.io is considered a vertical slice (demo or proof of concept), and was originally designed to be displayed at a game conference. The game was uploaded in the state it was after the course ended. Since the team is now scattered around different schools with new projects, we are not able to continue development.
We are humbled by the amount of interest and positive feedback Anchored has gotten since we uploaded it and this makes us wish we were able to continue development. It is not impossible, however, that circumstances will allow us to finish Anchored in the future.
Either way, your feedback is always of interest to us, so don't hesitate to leave a comment telling us what you think of the game. Enjoy!
