Windbound is a "survivial-crafting" RPG adventure set amidst a series of islands. It's very similar to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in its gameplay and visuals, though the story is unique to itself.

You begin the game as Kara, shipwrecked and separated from her tribe. You embark on a journey across the "Forbidden Islands" scavenging the land and the wildlife for resources to survive. The setting holds within it a mystery and untold revelations that Kara will uncover along the way.

Your boat will be a very important item in this game, so crafting and customizing it such that you can sail between the islands is a crucial component of the gameplay. This gives Windbound the flavor of another Zelda title: The Wind Waker.

Shipwrecked alone on an uncharted island, explore, adapt and navigate the land and perilous seas to stay alive.
As Kara, you are a warrior, caught at sea in a fierce storm, adrift from your tribe. Thrown from your boat, at the mercy of the turbulent waters, you are tossed on to the shores of the Forbidden Islands, a mysterious paradise.

With no boat, no food or tools, just the will and skill to survive, uncover this beautiful island’s rich resources. Craft tools and weapons to hunt and defend yourself against nature itself with its wild and fantastical creatures.

Whilst exploring further islands and the scattered ruins across their lands, secrets of the past and glimpses of the future are revealed. Unravel the mystery behind them all and you may find more than just your way home.
