San Francisco, California - February 27, 2014 - Your survival skills are in high demand for the latest free-to-play strategy from G5 Games, Sampad and Awem Games - The Island Castaway: Lost World®, available on iPad today. In this next chapter in the hit The Island Castaway series players will experience all new, heart-pounding adventures and unending fun. A brand new, intriguing tropical island, challenging quests, a riveting and fresh storyline along with fearless indigenous characters await you! You can finally find out whether or not the castaways made famous in the first 2 installments make it off the island in one piece. Being stranded on a remote island has never been so entertaining!

After a shipwreck, your main goal is survival, although getting off the island would be great too. But first you must step up and become the leader of the castaways to prevent chaos and ensure everyone's well-being. To provide reliable food sources for your group, build a fish farm to catch eels, a quail farm to cultivate poultry and a crab farm to trap shellfish. Also create a clay pit and a liana farm to source the building materials needed for shelters. Track down rare plants for your magic potions, and be mindful about protection while exploring the island. Befriend the natives and learn to cook all kinds of local cuisine.

But it's not just about keeping safe, dry and well-fed. To escape the island and return home, you must decipher bizarre markings on the ground, collect ancient statues, kill a crab monster and unravel this mysterious island's dark secrets!
