Hy guys,
I am the developer of the game "Shipwreck - Lonely Island".
It actually is a remake of an old game and reminds a little bit of Minecraft.

Haven't played the original on PC before so not sure but at 99 cents I'm gonna take the plunge and see if it's any good.

This looks like it has potential. I'd love to hear more impressions. Hopefully the folks who scored codes in the promos forum show up to talk about their experience with this.

I bought this and after around 2 hours game play I'm having an absolute blast. Its not going to be for everyone, it has a very basic art style and is pretty tricky early on. But I'm now on day 12 and have a lovely tree house a fire and some fields. I spend my days fishing and exploring the island in my boat. I haven't made an SOS sign yet as I'm not ready to leave my island paradise. My searches seem to show there are no other islands around me, thats a bit of a shame, would like to travel to other islands in my boat.

Anyway it was definitely worth the buck I spent on it.

Did some very minor research (By just simply googling the game) and found out that this game was created in the year 2002 which explains the graphic. Also to note is that this game is a freeware on the PC so if you're itching to play this game, just download it, legally!

If you like the game, if you can or like, buy it and play it anywhere

Thank you for your kind words guys!
Yes, as i mentioned in my original post the game is a remake of a pc game.
The pc game though, unfotunately is not working well starting from windows vista and above. At least in my tests. But you definetly can give it a try.

I bought the game, but it's called Schiffbruch (I guess this is the German name) on my desktop. Is this intentional?

From what I've read pretty sure that's the German name for the game.

Okay, but my question is, why isn't it called "Shipwreck"?
