After running into a storm while sailing the open ocean, you become shipwrecked on an archipelago that's plagued by an ancient curse. With the Captain injured and unable to lead his crew, it'll be up to you to find them and get them off the islands. Before you can do that, however, you'll need to lift the ancient curse put on the Islands. With the help of an Ancestor, you must find the ancient relics and return them to their rightful places atop a sacred pyramid. Along the way, you and your crew will build up a camp to survive. Build shacks for each of the crew members and tend to a farm to keep them well fed and in turn, they'll help build a brand new ship to escape on.
As of Patch 1.03, all of the game breaking bugs have been fixed.
Step 1: Get your crew Happiness up to Level 60 while completing all of the quests
Since the game is open world, you can go at your own pace with both of these. You'll need to increase your Crew Happiness for a handful of the trophies as it unlocks buildings and quest givers. As you work towards increasing that level, make sure you're discovering as many new recipes as you can. To make it go by quicker, make sure you have at least 1 of each ingredient on you at all times. Discovering recipes doesn't actually use the ingredient and providing you don't actually cook the meal, you won't lose the ingredient(s). You also want to complete the Quests as they appear. This will take you to all 4 Islands where you'll also pick up a majority of the Seeds and Fish required for those specific collectible trophies. When you get to the very end of the game, you'll be given the option to "Lift the Curse" on the island. Make sure you have earned all of the miscellaneous/collectible trophies before lifting the curse as once you leave the island, you can't come back, so if you missed anything, you'll need to start a new game to get it.
After this step, you will earn:
Stew for the Crew
The Right Tools for the Job
Step 2: Collectibles
Now that you have the grindy part of the game done, it's time to work on the collectibles. Each Island has its own set of Artifacts that you need to pick up. You also want to make sure you're picking up every Seed and catching every type of Fish while you're on each Island so you can make sure you collect all of those required for their specific trophies. Additionally, if you haven't already done so while working on your Crew Happiness, finish up discovering all of the recipes needed for Master Chef.
Once you have found all of the Artifacts, Seeds, Golden Tools and have caught all the fish, you will have unlocked the following:
Step 3: The Arena
The three fights for the Arena are rather time consuming so do them last. When you complete an Island, it's associating Arena battle will become available on top of the pyramid. You'll need to make it through 100 Waves on Easy (roughly 45 minutes), 70 Waves on Medium (roughly half an hour) and 50 Waves on Hard (roughly 20-30 minutes). They are more time consuming than they are difficult so just keep at it until all 3 are done.
Once you've completed this step, you will earn:
