Stranded II (also known as Stranded 2 or short S2) is a freeware 3D adventure survival game developed by Peter Schauss. It was published as "gold" version 126.96.36.199 on June 20, 2007 under the Creative Commons License. The most recent version of the game was published on October 31, 2010 and was compiled with a newer version of Blitz3D which provides better support for DirectX. This allows it to run the game also on computers which are using Windows Vista or Windows 7. However, there still might occasionally be a few cases where the game won't run with this version, even though it runs on much more computers now than in former versions.
The basic rules in Stranded II remain the same as in the first game, Stranded I: You play as "Mr. Stranded" who finds himself (in the adventure mode after being shipwrecked) on a lone island, trying to survive. To do so, you have to watch your vital needs such as hunger, thirst and fatigue which are displayed as bars in the upper left corner of the screen. Once one of these bars is filled completely the player starts to bleed and loses heath periodically which is also shown in the upper left corner. When this indicator lowers to zero the player dies. Furthermore attacks from wild animals or sleeping without a shelter will provide direct damage to the player. In order to restore some health he can eat or drink certain food/drinks.
