But, what about the boat that landed on the island belonged to a person in need of a search? The reunion is sure to be one of the most tortuous situations a person can encounter in life.

The story is simple but opens up a strange world
Often survival games like this will let the player drift on a deserted island. They will have to try their best to exploit the island’s resources and live on it. However, Idle Arks: Build at Sea does not take players to any of the islands. The survivors will have to travel on their small rafts. A lot of difficulties and problems that need to be solved in a seeming deadlock problem will attract players. How enough resources to exploit? How to survive the calamities of the sea? How to build a house? Questions like these will constantly appear to give players a different perspective on the genre in general and this game in particular.
If you’ve heard the story of Noah’s Ark, Idle Arks: Build at Sea simulates an almost similar situation. The biggest flood ever engulfed the world and made it impossible for all living creatures to survive. In such an urgent situation, you are lucky to catch a wooden raft and survive the disaster. However, everything around is engulfed, you are the only one left. Floating on immense water with no stops (because right now, almost 99% of the Earth’s surface is submerged in water), players will have to find a way to sustain their lives, save others, and build your raft to be solid. Surprise events will keep coming up, bringing you interesting things to discover.
The way to build and the actions you need to be familiar with for survival
Other than living on land, “Idle Arks: Build at Sea” requires you to survive at sea. Because of this, the exploitation of resources is impossible. The first and most abundant resource is wood, you will have to exploit by swimming out of your raft to search. The pieces of wood will slowly drift to the raft and you must try to collect them as much as possible. The world has just been submerged, so many resources will be drifted everywhere. Wood is the most important thing for you to continue expanding the area of the raft, at some point, it will become a giant ark enough to save many lives in the world.
Besides wood, players can also collect other things from swimming out of the raft. Floating bottles will contain some useful information for you to find the treasure storage. Or sometimes it’s a letter for someone’s help. Treasure chests also appear frequently on your journey. It probably contains something useful. But you should not expect too much because the value of the item in it is not necessarily too large. Just collect them and later we will be able to use it in some cases. Finally, other mystery construction materials will help you accelerate the construction of your ark.
Good context and graphics design, bringing different experience
Idle Arks: Build at Sea has a type of 3D cubes graphic design like Minecraft. With this design, players will feel the atmosphere of a real survival game. You have to collect everything and make them the most useful. To match the process of finding resources, the game also recommends sliding to switch the angle of view at will. You will have to swim away from your raft so this feature allows you to control your position well and manage everything more easily. The game also proposes different types of weather to challenge the survival of the player. Snowy, thunder day/night, unexpected lightning, and sunny days make you have to devise many ways to survive in these extreme conditions. Without good preparation, you are very likely to die.
