I love this adventure! It's not easy to write something that evokes a specific vibe while staying open-ended enough that any playgroup would feel at home within its gentle restraints. The character and "entity" generators are fantastic as well. I really love all the unique combos.

The way the challenges, complications, and 'game mechanics' are hinted at in the text is genius. Being asked to interpret the difficulty as a collective is a nice touch. The subtle ways the text leads players and GM alike to become game designers is everything. 

It asks you to pay attention - as a Navigator or a Survivor - to connect the tissue of your challenges through roleplay. This is an adventure about your characters and their psyches. You'll constantly be on the lookout for opportunities to develop characters in an introspective meta 'mirror' of your literal play experience irl and in the game.

This game-within-a-game works perfectly for Cast Away and provides a framework with which to utilize any setting, story, mechanic, or other element you wish to include. Use this to play a Troika adventure? Sure! How about a Mork Borg dungeon? Why not?! It also works really well to introduce a longer campaign if that's what you're looking for.

The potential for deep, interesting, and unique game experiences is outlined in a way that caters to the improv GMs, the prep-heavy GMs, and everyone in between. The added "meta" of an imagined world inside your imagined world is the cherry on top. Well done!
