Early Access Game

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

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:

To celebrate our anniversary, we’re offering everyone a brand new, rare recipe pack: The Decorative Lava set. It’s only available for free for a limited time, so claim yours today with this code in our store: 1YEARLATER.

We’re swiftly approaching some historic moments for Creativerse: we’ll be showing the game at PAX later this month, and we expect to go free later this year. All that while continuing our constant updates with cool new features and polish/improvements!

Creativerse R21 -- Welcome to the Customization Nation

This update is a love letter to custom builders. First up, personalize your blueprints by swapping out the materials for any block you want. Go ahead and make that all-ladder gazebo you’ve been waiting to show the world! Also, you’ll now see a ghosty pre-vision of your blueprint so you know how it’ll look before you get started .

Last time we mentioned block rotation would be getting better, and it just did. Now you can rotate almost any block to any position you desire. So go ahead and channel your inner Ruby Rhod and shout, “I WANT ALL POSITIONS!”

Finally, because so many of you asked for it, we’ve added permission settings to chests, stations and other interactables. Keep all your precious lumite safe from “friends”.

And now for some delicious patch notes...

New Features and Content
  • Customize your blueprints
    • Change any blueprint’s building materials
    • Swap in your favorite blocks by interacting with a deactivated cornerstone and dragging in items from your quickbar
  • Advanced block rotation
    • Hold R and LMB while targeting a block and move the mouse to rotate it
    • Tap R while pointing at a rotated block to “lock rotation”
      • While rotation is locked, additional blocks that are placed will be placed in the same rotation
      • Tap R again to unlock rotation
  • Permission settings for chests and other interactables
    • If you placed an object, you are its owner
    • Interact with the object and press the Lock button to set object permissions
    • Note: World Owners and Admins can access any object, regardless of permissions settings
  • Decorative item containers - the flower pots and planters can now have an item placed inside of it that changes the external visual
  • New blueprint: Wood Fort
  • Coupon Support
    • Redeem Coupon Button added to the store page
    • Will allow us to give away various products, special items, or anything else with a unique coupon code

Improvements
  • Blueprint improvements
    • Blueprint pre-visualization - Ghost image of your blueprint is now visible when placing a deactivated cornerstone
    • Blueprint hint blocks passthrough option
      • An option to have your blueprint blocks show through all other blocks
      • This will make it much easier to find that one hidden block keeping your from completing your blueprint
  • Recipe and processor / forge timing balance pass
  • Improved glass texture (we found some windex and made then squeaky clean!)
  • Performance improvements (more to come!)

Bugfixes
  • Fix for visual glitch introduced in R20 when digging at the bottom of a chunk boundary
  • Store music bugfixes

Known Issues
  • Existing in-progress blueprints may need to be deactivated and activated again to properly set rotation
  • Custom changes to blueprint blocks are not reflected in the blueprint tracker
  • Flower pots and planters already placed do need to be picked up and put back down to activate their container ability.

Early Access Review
The best block-based game i have played so far, including Minecraft:

° The atmosphere is amazing, featuring beautiful graphics and music
° Controls are fluid and intuitive, and building and gathering ressources works like a charm
° There is only one tool for collecting ressources, which can be upgraded over time
° Crafting is comfortable and exciting! All available recipies are stored ingame, and collecting new items, finding rare treasure chests, defeating special Monsters and crafting new stuff unlocks new recipies
° Devs are very nice and communicate with Players
° The game is far from being finished and is permanently updated

Also, Creativerse is the perfect game for short play-sessions. I always play a bit before going to work, and it always feels rewarding!

Love it!

Early Access Review
This game is INCREDIBLE! I absolutely DOES NOT feel like an alpha game. Yes, there are some minor issues, but it is so solid, and the devs are constantly involved with the community making this a better game. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys sandbox games. I can not wait for modding support *hint hint*

I love this game, each and every update is awesome, survival is not terrifying hard, building with the new blueprints is AWESOME! Worth every penny as my 234 hours on record will attest to! This is kind of a simplified minecraft but fun

Early Access Review
I love it its open world sandbox and those kinds of things but 1 thing i hope they add is like ranged and magic weapons because that would be down-right awsome. Oh and they should add more things like hunger and food and maybe some stuff thats even better than lumite. One last thing they, or should I say the Dev's, should also fix the textures on certain peices of armor. I hope all of you people out there agree with me. Thanks!
