My co-op gaming group has logged just a few hundred further hours in Deep Rock Galactic since I wrote about it a 12 months and a half in the past, however we’re all the time searching for one other recreation to fall in love with.

We have tried a bunch of issues within the final 12 months, guided by a mixture of constructive opinions and “no matter is on sale in Steam on the time.” We have logged time in Again four BloodPayday 2Warhammer: Vermintide 2, Sea of Thieves, Diablo IIIThreat of Rain 2, and Borderlands 3, and every has had its charms. However the one which has caught with me essentially the most is named Raft, a recreation about constructing a raft.

Raft is not new—it went into Early Entry in 2018—however its formal launch occurred this previous June. The pitch: You start the sport drifting throughout an countless ocean on a tiny wood raft cobbled collectively from flotsam and jetsam. Armed with solely a trusty throwable plastic hook, you will need to comb the ocean for planks, plastic, and different bits of scrap that you should use to broaden your raft and keep alive. And when you’re not in fixed hazard of ravenous to loss of life (and as soon as you’ll be able to steer your raft as a substitute of simply letting it drift), you’ll be able to start crusing to the world’s remaining islands to determine what occurred to everybody else.
