Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe in the power of playtesting and the value of feedback. Creativerse will be a free-to-play game at launch. By charging for Early Access, we're hoping to ensure we get feedback from people who are passionate about shaping the game's destiny, invested in its future, and excited to get access to the game before it's released.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Long before we launched, we had estimated 4 - 6 months for Early Access. However, the realities of supporting a live game while developing new features and content quickly sunk in. We now feel 8 - 12 months is closer to what we'll need.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The core game is built on three essential components: exploration, combat, and crafting. On that foundation, we'll be adding a variety of new features, systems and content over the course of Early Access. We're excited to share these with you!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable with a decent amount of content, though it's certainly not bug-free. If you're experiencing an issue, your feedback will help us fix it!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes. We are committed to launching as a free to play game. We believe it will allow us to reach the widest audience possible. Continued development will be supported by microtransactions. However, we are making every effort to ensure that in-game purchases are not tied to the core loop of the game -- we don't want to penalize players who simply want to play for free.

As a bonus to our Early Access participants, you will receive a gift of in-game currency equal to the price of Early Access once the game officially launches!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We're hoping to get as much feedback as possible. Please let us know if you have any suggestions, whether it's something you'd like to see added or changed or removed entirely. We've already added a bunch of stuff and made a number of changes to the game based on player feedback and we plan to continue listening and responding throughout Early Access.

So...send us your feedback, please! Here are the best places to do that:

Creativerse R20 - Block rotation, linked windows/fences

One of the things we pride ourselves on here at Playful is including something inspired by our players’ feedback in every release. R20 has a big one: block rotation and linked fences/windows. See it in action here. This is just the first version of block rotation, by the way -- expect it to get better down the road.

Also in R20: a tracker system for blueprints, so you can know exactly what you need and what you have on hand when working on a blueprint. There's a new blueprint and a slew of craftable iron decor (start unlocking it by crafting some Iron Bar Walls).

Keep the feedback coming and play on!

New Features and Content
  • Block rotation!
    • Auto-rotation for slopes, stairs, and slabs placed on surfaces above or below
  • Linked fences and windows
    • Fences now connect and have corners
    • Windows placed next to each other will merge into larger windows
  • Blueprint tracker
    • Like the recipe tracker, but for blueprints
    • Track blueprints from the cornerstone interface
  • New craftable items
    • Iron Chair
    • Iron Table
    • Iron Fence
    • Iron Gate
  • New blueprint: Tower Castle
  • Additional audio content

Improvements
  • Recipe (and blueprint) tracking is per world rather than a global preference
  • Asphalt recipe rebalanced to require less fossils

Bugfixes
  • Death statue beacons fixed
  • Logs now visible from a greater distance
  • Vines now climbable again
  • Visual tweak for recipe pack gradients in store UI
  • Loot chests will no longer spawn on foliage and other stompable blocks

Edit: Known Issues
  • Existing fans will be turned upside down (an effect of the block rotation feature). You'll need to pick them up and place them back down to fix.

Creativerse R19 - Let’s Go Shopping!

We've got a treat in store for you today. Pun intended -- it's the return of the STORE! Not seen in the wild since last fall, the store is packing a few things you’ll recognize, like fireworks and stained glass. There are also fancy new recipe packs. But the thing we’re most excited about is a new feature called Blueprints.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=477676397

Blueprints will make a master builder out of anyone by providing step-by-step instructions for building fantastic structures in your world. The best part is once you start one, anyone in the world can participate for an fun team building experience. This current version of blueprints is just the beginning -- we're planning on doing a lot with this system in the future, and we'd love to hear your thoughts about how you’d like to see it grow.

A word about store currency: we won’t be accepting real money transactions until the game goes free later this year. Until then, there’s a button in the store that will give you 10 free coins daily. Also, everyone will start with 200 coins in their account!

Lastly, we added two frequently requested features: 1) Sleep through the night! 2) Share stuff with friends by dropping items into special loot bags.

Thanks for your continued support and feedback, everyone!

New Features and Content
  • New store - blueprints and recipes
    • Recipe packs are permanent additions to your library once purchased.
      • Three old recipe packs from the original store, and four new ones.
    • Blueprints are a new feature - see explanation below.
    Blueprints
    • Purchase blueprints for step-by-step instructions for large builds.
    • Blueprint purchases contain a cornerstone that can be claimed in a single world.
    • Place the cornerstone, then interact with it and activate it to begin building the structure.
    • Place the correct blocks and watch the structure expand.
    • NOTE: blueprints do not include the necessary blocks. The cornerstone UI lists all the blocks necessary to construct the structure.
    Sleeping
    • Interact with a bed to sleep and advance time to dawn or dusk.
    • All players in a world must sleep at the same time to advance time.
    • NOTE: beds placed in an old world must be pulled up and replaced before you will be able to interact with them.
    Dropping items
    • Drag items to the loot bag on your inventory to drop it on the ground
    • Highlight an existing dropped bag and press Z to add items to the bag from the quickbar.
    • Any player may pick up items in a dropped loot bag.
    • NOTE: dropped loot bags are not permanent. For permanent storage, use chests. When you leave the region or log out, dropped loot bags will vanish.
  • New selection animations on character select screen

Improvements
  • Additional movement tweaks

Bugfixes
  • Fix for liquid simulation deleting placed blocks

Early Access Review
Had this game for a while and never really played it. But once I came back I really started to enjoy it again.
The crafting is really easy and fun to get into, very nice. The building system is also pretty good, all the different materials you can use to make your house nice and spiffy. I hope that they change the movement in the future, it feels like you are running on ice. Other than that it's a wonderful game. Really chill and peaceful when you are bored. 10/10.

Early Access Review
While this game is great considering its beta i feel that onve you hit the corruption level the exploration stops and theres nothing left to do but build. I would very much like to see several more layers added to the world each with its own unique bioms and materials you need to harvest to get to the next level below. Other than that i would very much encourage you to pick this game up soley for the multiplayer aspects like the free servers saved to steam so you can play on a friends server without them being online.


10/10 would grief my friends again

It would be super awesome if there were controller support for this game. Love this type, but keyboard and mouse are murder on the wrists after numerous hours of gameplay, and it does go by quickly.

This game is absolutely beautiful. I highly recommend this if you're into voxel open world games! There's so much to do and see.

Early Access Review
Been playing the game for several months and do recomend it.

Music - 2 out of 10 (The games music is dull and boaring.)
Sound Effects - 8 out of 10 (Enemies give a bit of warning which is good.)
Graphics - 9 out of 10 (The rating is based on the voxel like setting.)
Playability - ... 10 out of 10 to 0 out of 10 (The game is great when it works but not so much when it doesn't.)

I'll post an edited review later on, but for the most part this game is like Minecraft with better mobs and zero moding ability. My biggest issue with the game is that it's online only; Meaning that saves, builds and so forth are dependant upon the delveloper and their server/s.
