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. Are you passionate about this kind of game? We want to hear from you! Your suggestions and constructive criticism will help us shape its destiny.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate the game will be in early access anywhere from 12 to 24 months.”

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

“The core game is built on three essential components: exploration, adventure, and creation. 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, let us know and we'll fix it. You can read more about our upcoming plans for the game in our FAQ.”

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

“During the first 15 months of Creativerse’s life, we charged $20 for the game. This allowed us to restrict its audience at a time when we weren’t quite ready for an influx of players. However, we always planned to make the game free as it’s our belief that this will allow us to reach the widest audience possible. Continued development is now being supported by microtransactions. We are making every effort to ensure that in-game purchases are not tied to the core loop of the game -- we want players to enjoy the game without being restricted by any pay-to-win or pay-to-play mechanics.”

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 a cool feature you’d like to see added or a change to something currently in the game. We've already added many features and changes based on player feedback and have no plans to stop.

Here are the best places to reach us:

Update: Upcoming change to blueprint system

Greetings, Creatifolks.

We wanted to give the community a quick heads-up about the future of one of our favorite Creativerse features: blueprints! We think blueprints are a lot of fun, and decided they’d be even better if they were free for everyone to enjoy. So effective R31, all blueprints will be free, though you’ll have the option to buy all the blocks if you want to get started building instantly. We’ll also be adding a bunch of new blueprints to the mix.

To prepare for the change, we're disabling blueprint purchases until the R31 update, which is a week or so away. We appreciate your patience as we work to give blueprints the democracy they deserve!

"A Voxel World full of cute piglets and chameleons"
An immersive sandbox & crafting game which is just amazing. Honestly I knew it longer but didn't want to spend 10 EUR for it. Now it's F2P and offers the whole content and even some free blueprints. All MTs can also be made with resources payment (zone claims, blueprint buys). Ofc comparsions to Minecraft can be made. But this game has primarly a focus on HiRes graphics and liquid animations of many different kind of specimen (overly cute comic style!). You'll be sucked in easily into this cycle of crafting & building, farming crops, taming specimen and gathering minerals. The receipts are not too unfair. So you mustn't grind long for resources (except Iron ore seems pretty rare).

Little complaints about the graphics performance: sometimes you see through unrendered blocks down to lavaworld. Also the game seems to run in some Flash webbrowser mode. On my highend gaming laptop it has the same performance than on my old office notebook. And the RAM memory usage is constantly 1.5 gigs.
Also the melee fights (only swords as weapons) are pretty unsharp. Enemies hit you from far distance and even through cavewalls. Another thing is travelling the whole map shows you always the same bioms over and over again.

But after you crafted yourself up to the highest gear the game has still some more to offer. The building ideas are limitless. The first 100 hours went away very fastly. Still have something to build even after gathering Lumite from the Corruption ...

Very good game! Enjoyed it a lot, despite it being kind of a Minecraft clone. It takes a lot of Minecraft's aspects and upgrades them to the next level. Awesome graphics, textures, models and much more will await anyone who tries this game out. Only thing I recommend to the devs is to be able to change world stats after creation, like being able to make it peaceful instead of normal after creation. Also, if the devs want to add a kind of inventory save system, so we could have one inventory on a character in every world we go into that'll probably help a lot of people with those pesky obsidian nodes...
Either way, thank you so much for the game Playful, I'm going to play for many months, maybe even years! I give it a 9/10.

So, my friend told me to think about the positives right? So I said "the game is Okay but still needs a lot of improvements." Like, it needs fahrenheit and celsius, because they got their facts wrong someone is dying of heat at 120 degrees? Da hell? And, let's not mention that you die at 20 degrees from being too cold seriously? The average freezing temp is around 15 degrees! And, the average dying from heat temp is around 130. Also there is a glitch where you jump and fly like 40 blocks in the air what is that? I have died from that glitch over 7 times. Over all it's okay I still wouldn't recommend this game.

It's a charmingly fun game. If you can get it to work that is. I never played any Minecraft so I can't comment on the similarities. Other than 7 Days to Die this is the only voxel based sandbox game I have played. There seems to be a lot to craft and obviously the things you could build are pretty much endless. It's not very hard, but that makes it relaxing, and it really is a beautiful game. I'd pay money for this if I could get it working all the time. Sometimes I can get in and sometimes I get the infamous ERROR AUTHENTICATING SERVER thingy and have to either reboot steam or reboot my laptop. Not sure why. There is some guides online for fixing this error but you will also find out some people can't get back in ever again. I wish that was fixed.

This is a fun game. Very similar mechanics to Minecraft but there are more RPG elements which make it enjoyable outside of just mining blocks and building things.

The crafting system expands as you create new objects and collect new materials.
The fighting system is pretty basic, you have a sword (you start out with a stick, however) of various materials which do more damage for each material type. There are health potions which you can make and are very useful because there is no cooldown to use them and they are pretty easy to make. Bombs are also a huge help with combat and if you've killed enough Keepa for gun powder, you should rarely run out.

Death just means you need to run back to where you were to get what was in your inventory when you died. All equipment and quickbar items remain equipped. Now that they've added a map, its a lot easier to find your way around as well.

The game looks pretty good, for a block-based world. All npc's have normal looking models, including the player characters. Easy to play with friends and have them join your world too.

I am hoping the dev's continue to work on this game by adding in some boss type monsters or some other kind of challenges and building materials.

Personally, I am a competitive gamer. I play games like LOL and CSGO; I come play creativerse whenever I get salty in the matches I play. It helps me relax and just play casually. I recommend it to anyone looking for a game like minecraft but better graphics and more gameplay.

I went into this game with a firm expectation of yet another minecraft clone. And it is. But it's also a lot more. The controls are clearly largely based on that of minecrafts (not a bad thing, just an observation) but that and the blocky style is where the overlap ends. All sorts of well designed creatures, as well as an amazing art-style, makes this game an absolute beauty. I was skepticle at first, but after only five minutes I could tell I was going to like this. On another note, the crafting is very complex and fullfilling, with a blockheads-type feel to it in terms of the tiering system for each item crafted. Anybody who has seen this and had second thoughts due to the fact that it came out at the same time as all the other sandbox surivival games (some of which aren't that great), download this game with now, it's free, and you'll get hours upon hours of intriguing gameplay. Only complaints are that online has a few minor bugs, and once you've played one game the next feel slightly repetitive and tedious. Those complaints aside though, great game, very much recommended :)

It's a fun Minecraft clone, what was supposed to be a quick hour or two look turned into 12 hrs. It's a very forgiving game also, death most of your items goes into a tomestone pot. Also has a built in compase with markers. Very addicting to play with others. Taming the wild life gets a bit boring when after it's tamed. All the creature does is follow/wander/stay. Feeding it, the pet will give you an item to harvest from it. Would be interesting if some could be tankers or support fighters.

Creativerse is a leap forward from Minecraft. I would judge it to be twice as far a leap as minecraft is from Infiniminer.

The game is fluid and fleshed out. Game mechanics are very easily learned and mastered. The sheer number of blocks you can build with is amazing. Craftable blueprints really make the game special and different from Minecraft, and more like Planet Explorers.

Multiplayer servers are handled by the game developer, and are easy to play on. Some admin tools exist, and more are on the way.

This game has much more potential fun than any other block based game, bar none.

I highly recommend this game.

This is probably one of the best free games on steam. If you read the bad reviews, saying that you have to pay to get things faster, they completely removed that feature. There still is an in game shop, where you can get more blocks and builds, but you start off with 2,000 coins. That seems to be enough to get the things that you want. I haven't added a penny to this game, and it is one pf my most played games. I would definatley reccomend this game to anyone, regardless of wheter you like the genre, or not.

While it may be similar to MInecraft, Creatifverse diverges greatly from MC. More are available to the player to use, craft with, craft, and decorate. Way more mobs and the mobs are significantly harder to take down; they also deal more damages. So getting better weapons, armour, and a steady supply of health potions is crucial. However, getting resources is also a dificult challenge. THe further you go down the more enemies and the stronger they are, but also the more valuable resources. SO stack up !!
You can also get a pet which in turn gives you free items, as long as you take care of it. My first pet was a rockster! But i lost him. It's been days(in game) since i've seen him. All I've had is my pigsy, Pig-o-tron, to comfort me,
Moreover, this game is best played with more people. You'll need to them to coordinate attacks, gather sources and build. The world is huge and unforgiving.
Great game, I will continue to play !!!

Welp, lets start buy saying that I've personally never played Minecraft. I've watched other ppl play, my son plays it and I've gotten idea about these types of games from him.

I've waited 'minecraft style' sandbox game to play, I've looked up many games yet not play one. I saw this game on steam suggestions and instantly was pulled in. Downloaded game, btw 1~gb? that's so small, awww, anyways... Downloaded game, logged in and after 5 hours I was like "wth what time is it?". Safe to say Im hooked, so many armors crafted, so many swords broken... so many blocks gathered...

Yeah, try the game, this IS NOT MINECRAFT (My opinion is based on watching someone else play MC)

I most likely wouldnt had bought this game EA 20$ or something? But after playing it now, Im most likely going to buy gold to get blocks :D

I love this game, it's amazing, and being in Beta it just keeps getting better. But i haven't seen ranged weapons yet. In every game like this i play, i get the best ranged weapon i can, but there are none. Bombs aren't gonna work for me, I need something I can aim from a large distance, and shoot powerful mobs with. Please consider doing this, and PLEASE add things to make it a bit more difficult. Otherwise, thank you for making such an amazing game.

I picked up this game a few days ago and forgot about it. And then sunk my evening yesterday into it. For Minecraft players, they'll find this game familiar yet fresh and different. There are a few really minor thinga that make the play experience much nicer than Minecraft, for me. One major thing is jumping. You can jump 2 blocks straight up and you can jump across a pretty wide gap. The other thing is mining. Rather than stand there and swing your pickaxe like a fool, you simply place the gatherer, and walk away. Then when you come back when it's finished, and your ores are sitting there all nice waiting for you. Eating also isn't a necessity. Which I know will be a point of contention for some, but rather it's there to boost your play experience rather than hinder it. There are some other things, like falling damage, that are equally convenient but you won't notice so much.

There are also features you may notice from many popular Minecraft full mods. The death beacon is a major one where you can collect your items you dropped on death (but your quick bar handily remains on your person!). Equally convenient and awesome are personal and craftable teleporters. You can set teleporters to travel to eachother, and players in your world can travel directly to your person teleporter. This is especially handy when playing with a friend and you're able to explore without a concern in the world about getting lost. There's also many different overworld mobs with different varieties for biomes. And dozens of items to pick up off the ground you'll think you're chasing butterflies in Skyrim.

That said, there are a handful of things I find cumbersome coming from the super flexibile Minecraft background. First and foremost is recipe progression. Personally, I don't like having to 'find' recpies only after creating the items that are lower than it. Even though I can't create it, I like to see where I'm headded for eventually (a la Don't Starve). Also having to refine every item at the processor is a bit of a drag. It makes it so that your cave dives eventually have to turn back home or hole up and take a long pause while you refine the stone you need for more gatherers.

I also found combat and taming to be quite clunky. I may not be getting the full grasp on how it plays properly but from what I gathered, you're pretty much guaranteed to take damage. The combat system heavily focuses on your gear rather than your ability to kite and hit. Taming falls on the same spectrum: while you're ringing your bell it seems like you just stand there and take damage. There are a few non-obvious ways to avoid taking damage, but I'd personally like to see it play a bit more 'obviously'.

Overall, I highly recommend this game. It's a slightly different, yet familiar, take on the sandbox construction/survival genre and I think plays really well. It's a smooth experience that does a pretty great job of guiding newbies into it through individual tasks, though a wiki will still always be your best friend. It's a great early access game with a few minor hiccups (most of the stuff I noticed is graphical glitches) but doesn't interfere with your play experience.

Looks extremely promising. Optimization needs to be better, i'm not playing it because of how laggy it gets. Textures all around need to be touched up, hit boxes are horrible and there needs to be a way to block. other than that the game is fun and will definitley play it again.

Fun, but very graphically demanding. If you have a decent computer it's playable but it doesn't work for those with older computers. I wish it was easier on low-power computers so more people could play. It works almost flawlessly on my MacBook Pro (2015, 2.7 GHz core i5, intel iris 6100 graphics, 8 GB RAM ) but it doesn't work at all for my friends who want to play this game. That's unfortunate because I love this game.

Everybody says the game is based on Minecraft, but its not. Its based on... Trove. The mechanics of mining, the mechanic of higher jumping (double jumping in Trove) etc.
By the way.. After playing the game for a few hours, I can give u Pros and cons.
Pros :
-Its a better Trove I think
-Currently untoxic community (It may change)
-Nice mining upgrade mechanics
Cons :
-Death Statue below the world glitch
_________________________________________________
So after these pros and cons, I can give this game an 8/10.

This game...
Oh my gods this game
I thought this was going to be just another low-tier minecraft copy and I was so wrong. This game is amazing. It has a unique charm to it and there's so much to do. With the upcoming (at the moment) free bueprints, there's an infinite possibility of buildings to create. The world is well-designed and the game runs very smoothly.
I highly recoommend this game to anyone who enjoyed (or still enjoys) Minecraft.

This game is really funny and on a good way.
They are doing really good things with this game, for example the blueprints:
befor you had to pay to have them, and for the money of the game, too.
But now you can craft them.
Graphics are better, too.
I`m really happy with this game, and i`m having really good moments with my friends in this game.

This game is amazing. Me and my friend Matvey play this game together all the time and some people think this game is absalute crap but they are wrong It's almost as good as Minecraft it's an interesting very Minecraft like game but it takes its own very uniqe twist. I mean me and matvey built a treehouse and he has a pet Leafi and a pet Pigsy along with our own mine (wich we used explosions to create and i love explosions but it didn't look enough like an action movie so yeah thats one of the only thumbs downs i got I LOVE ACTION MOVIES!) so yeah I definitly recomend this game to all gamers i give it a 10/10

I am happy to say that this game is one of my favourite games, this is like minecraft but better in many ways (and in a few ways worse) and the best part, it's free, or at least it was free when i wrote this
