Tough Islands is a game about surviving on an island with nothing else than trees and rocks (and if you are lucky: chickens and bananas). Explore a random generated world, and look for new islands to expand your territory. Survive on cold snow islands, hot dessert islands or normal grass islands, with both hunger, thirst and your temperature in mind. Build bridges or campfires. Grow plants or go fishing. You decide.
