Version 2 now available on all platforms!

21 short days after leaving Early Access, I'm pleased to announce the version 2 patch.

The focus for this patch has been a lot of the feedback from the new player base, as well as taking advantage of the 3-week period to move to a much newer version of Unity, and get that tested. The newer Unity version adds a raft of fixes for Linux, as well as improved performance across the board.

What else to mention? I'm aware that multiplayer is in need of more love, sales are good... time for me to fix up all the forum posts and start on version 3. Version 3 should make charging the OET much easier, with much better power generators, another tier of weaponry, and access to the Tier-4 ores.

Major Features
  • This is Unity 4.6.9 - about 18 months newer than the last version of Unity we were using!
  • Improved corrupted world recovery (doing what I can to overcome Windows' awful file system)
  • Fixed a bunch of achievements!
  • Major improvments to wasp route finding
  • Added Organic Solar Panels!

  • Added brand new Advanced Conveyor Filters, allowing SPECIFIC filtering of items!

  • Added Tunnelling mobs - still using placeholder graphics, but this is to get better feedback from players, as opposed to not knowing what's going on.

  • Added Threat Generators and Calmers, allowing you to control your threat better (Still using placeholder graphics)
  • Rebalanced wasp attacks

  • SpiderBot improvements
  • Added detail setting "bloom" to the console
  • Segment pop-in has been substantially improved
  • DAPPER DLC OWNERS! You can now colourise torches with the paintgun!
  • Conveyor Slopes!
  • High-tier batteries now correctly level charge between them.
  • Improved initial tutorial experience. Hopefully it's a lot less subtle now.
  • Much improved Conveyor and Storage Hopper interactions; should lead to a much more even split of resources.

  • Missiles have substantially boosted damage and reduced construction costs

Full Patch notes available here :

Thank you to everyone who's supported FortressCraft so far! ːpcraceː

Update - Ready your gear for the invasion in the new addicting Survival Mode!

Get into the game with the newest updates to FortressCraft Evolved's new SURVIVAL MODE! Crash land on an alien planet, construct advanced power networks, research and deploy new machines to manufacture equipment, supplies and defenses. Survive the depths searching for rare elements and components to upgrade your armament, readying your base for the onslaught of the looming alien hordes. Grab a friend and work as a team to beat the odds!
Survival Mode adds a captivating and addicting Tower Defense game to the ultimate voxel universe of Fortresscraft. Will you be the first to power your orbital station and escape from this twisted planet?

About This Game

FortressCraft Evolved’s Survival Mode is a unique-blend of Voxel Landscapes, Tower Defense, Crafting, Logistics, Exploration, Combat and Assembly lines. Players begin by crash-landing on a strange alien world, left with only a small handful of starting machines. Using hand-held scanners they must locate ore resources, place down Ore Extractors and Conveyors to automate the raw material back to the Smelter; take the fresh ingots through multi-machine assembly lines, followed by researching new technologies that help them explore thousands of meters below the planet's surface.

An advanced HoloBase allows players to keep an eye on their factory which they must defend against waves of alien attacks with multiple tiers of missile and energy turrets. To survive they must continue to develop new and unique power systems, from solar energy to Jet Turbines, culminating in crafting an Orbital Energy Transmitter thousands of cubic meters in size, to beam power off-planet, and start the next phase of the game.

And all this with an enormous draw-distance, scalable gameplay engine that is equally at home on high-end or low-end computers, and full multiplayer support! This does not even factor in all that you can do in the Creative Mode whose only limits are your time and imagination. With an array of Super Build Tools and a high-resolution Custom Detail Block Workshop players can build anything and on a massive scale unseen in other games.

  • Experience the largest worlds ever seen in any computer game - ever!
  • Create a futuristic mining operation consisting of thousands of huge machines.
  • Full Tower-Defense style combat in a voxel universe.
  • Use hi-tech machinery to locate and process resources from thousands of meters away.
  • Explore thousands of metres vertically, overcoming ever-more difficult challenges.
  • Official Texture Pack and Mod Pack support
  • State of the art lighting and shadowing, utilising high resolution maps for machinery and environment
  • Innovative“Build to Me” Feature to facilitate rapid, accurate building
  • Shareable Creative Schematics
  • Super Build Tools allowing instant creation of primitive shapes

I don't normally write reviews, but this game deserves a review. I absolutly adore this game and has tons of wonderfull ideas and features with literally constant updates. So lets get into the game. What is it? You could say its minecraft but in all kind of isnt. It is its own unique game with tons of unique blocks and features that I would love to have in minecraft, that not even modded minecraft can offer. So lets get the good and the bad in the game listed in a nice little list. This is a little lengthy so if you dont want to read all of this and want to know the short version

SHORT Version: Its a good game lots of features and updates, little bugs, if there are it gets fixed pretty quickly, dev streams and listens to his watchers. Also they look at feedback and love to get feedback on the game.

LONG: If you want more depth here you go.

-It is constantly updated on a daily baises. There are new features almost weekly and when they did a poll on their twitter, literallythe next day there was a solution and was implemented within a pretty short amount of time. A day or two before it was in the game.

-Bugs are quickly addressed when reported and usually will have a patch in a decent amount of time, depending on how game breaking it is of course.

-Multiple tiers that you work your way through as you go deeper into the world.
-Researching those tiers. The deeper you get the more Research points you get (RP) The more blocks and flora you scan the more you unlock.

-Replayability. Theres a lot of replayability in this game and with constant updates and a lot of features being planned it is always a new experience. (Especially if they add the planned features like space)

-ARTHER. An amazing little robot that you can dress in a top hat, eye monocle and an good looking moustache. Love it! Though hes really useful ingame with status updates and back up power if you run low.

-Much more to list that would just make this ungodly long.

-Multiple game modes that are pretty fun ranging from hardcore and rush mode one or two others that I cant think of atm.


-Not everything is implemented yet. Some stuff is in there but it hasnt been properly fleshed out. (Though this isnt in early access, it still technically is because of a lot of reasons that you need to game developers point of view to understand. (Which the dev actually explained to us in a stream in depth which gives you a big understanding of the gaming industry. Like the top games make 90% of the money. Even though fortress craft is in the top 500 for steam games they still struggle, so even though this is the con section, I highly suggest if you buy the game you buy the DLC with it to help support them))

-Things can be a little difficult to piece together, even with the handbook, so it may take a little bit of time to figure things out or do a little research (Again its being fleshed out and the handbook is still unfinished so its understable)

-Your kind of stuck in spot defending the same area. Now Im sure they have plans to change that especially when they plan to implement space, so for right now your kind of defending your castle.

Honestly Im just prying cons out of anything I can just to make this seem fair, but there really arent to many cons. If you cant launch the game then talk to the dev. They'll try to help you. Trust me, they want to help you and expand their player base. You can listen into one of their streams and their ideas and viewpoints are really nice to listen into and really put time into their game. It is a bit of a tedious game so it takes time to make things but once you get the hang of it you will surely have fun. This is truly a fantastic game and you should give it a chance. I would honestly even say that this game should be valued way more then 10-15$ for the amount of work they put in, so its a pretty good deal for a game like this.

Great game! I have 50+ hours at the time of this review and l like that I still have a LOOONG way to go to experience all the content. The tech tree is quite extensive and feels well balanced. I also like the fact that it doesn't hold your hand every step of the way; that's part of the fun... figuring things out.

Fantastic game with ever expanding content. Lovely developer and sooo many hours of gameplay. This game has the infinite possibility of minecraft but in a slightly more advanced and challenging, but fun, sense.

Saw this title go from Mixed to Mostly Positive in about one day. This it the devs baby, and it shows with the amount of love it gets. If you're a fan of Minecraft and Factorio, this is, well, Minecraft and Factorio. Dig greedy, dig deep.
