Lost in Blue is a Adventuring game. Adventure games are enjoyed for two reasons: they provide enemy encounters that require tactics and strategy to conquor, and they create a fantasy world in which to explore and adventure.
Lost in Blue can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.

Lost in Blue is a really fun game, but there's no denying it is extremely sexist and portrays women as helpless and unable to look after themselves. In this game's world, it's very much all about traditional' gender roles -- that is, the woman staying at home making house and cooking dinner, and the man going off and having exciting adventures, providing for the lady, but spending very little actual time with her. I found the backstory as to why the two young castaways have to do this to be wholly unconvincing. It's rare that a game makes me angry for reasons other than frustration at being stuck, but Lost in Blue did.
Two young survivors of a shipwreck - Keith and Skye -- find themselves washed up on the shore of a mysterious and (seemingly) deserted island. I have to admit, the idea of finding myself marooned on an uninhabited island has always appealed to me since first reading Robinson Crusoe as a young girl. I loved the idea of getting away from the pressures of modern life and living a simpler existence somewhere where the sun shined every day. So I bought Lost in Blue as soon as I could get hold of a copy to live out my fantasy in a game.
