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:

New blocks, sun shafts in R10

Hi Creatifriends,

R10 adds six new blocks to the builder’s repertoire. Some are only found in rare treasure chests, others are unlocked through the normal game progression. Check out the fancy new tourmaline and diamond glass blocks.

The sun has gotten stronger, now piercing through the trees with bright shafts of light. Just another one of our many layers of polish to beautify the world of Creativerse.

Also, we realize the last couple updates have been on the lighter side (and R11 may be as well), but that’s because we’ve been busy working on some very big, exciting new features. We wanted to give you guys a sneak preview of some of the stuff you can look forward to seeing in the next couple months.

First, we have a whole new version of the Creativerse world in the works, with existing biomes being expanded and entirely new biomes created. Along with that will come a host of new creatures, blocks and recipe tweak to incorporate all the new stuff. Plus, actual continents and oceans! Take a look at some early screenshots.

We also have an overhaul of the crafting system UI, making it easier and more intuitive to use, a snazzy new main menu screen, plus a bunch of other stuff we can’t even talk about yet. Can’t wait for you guys to see it!

Finally, here’s the full patch notes for R10…

  • New extractor art and animations (including super extractor!)
  • New craftable blocks:
    • Yellow Mosaic Tile Wall (Found Recipe)

    • Blue Mosaic Tile Wall (Found Recipe)
    • Tourmaline Glass (Unlocked on Tourmaline)
    • Green Tourmaline Glass (Unlocked on Tourmaline Glass)
    • Diamond Glass (Unlocked on Diamond)

  • Lighting improvements
  • Extractor visual polish
  • Changed brown mushroom and glowing mushroom art
  • Tweaks and adjustments to sound effects and music
  • Backend server optimizations

  • Fix for enemies not being able to target and hit players in doorways

R9 -- Key re-mapping and bug squashing


Happy new year! It's time for R9. Since we took the holidays off, this is going to be on the lighter side as far as releases go. There's only one new feature -- though it's an often requested one -- key re-mapping.

But there are also a bunch of improvements and bug fixes. For example, one improvement, suggested by the community: visitors will no longer be harmed by mobs. In fact, most of the additions and fixes in this update came from player suggestions and bug reports. We really do appreciate all the help you guys give us. Keep it coming! Our forums are this way.

Here are the release notes...

New Features and Content
  • Hotkey re-mapping (use the one in-game and not on the game launcher)

  • Enemies are now peaceful to players with Visitor permissions
  • Adjustment to jump height allowing easier jumping into two-high spaces
  • Revised swimming / drowning effect
  • Keepa visual variations
  • Change to standard HTTP ports to improve world downloading for some players
  • Saplings no longer spawn randomly; only obtained by pulling wood / leaves
  • Reversion to less-irritating loot bag closing sound
  • Minor audio tweaks

Bug Fixes
  • Lighting fixes for non-block objects
  • Fix for some simulations dramatically slowing down the game
  • Light now properly passes through half-height slab blocks
  • Spamming the “T” key no longer stacks touchstone teleports
  • Flare effect no longer oversized
  • Fix for block duplication exploit
  • Fix for crafting duplication exploit
  • Fix for being catapult-launched while placing blocks underwater
  • Tooltip no longer vanishes when buffs run out
  • Fix for chests and teleporters visually vanishing to other players when “pulled” in multiplayer
  • Fix for missing wood roof icon
  • Growth simulation tweaks
  • Leaves and wood will no longer pull and vanish if inventory is full
  • Labels on chests and other items no longer default to “Enter a message” if you back out while changing the label

Early Access Review
Dear Consumers, Avid Gamers, and Concerned Passerby's
It makes me sad to read all the negitive reviews on this game, it almost kept me from getting it to be honest. After playing this game for 11 hours straight I can honestly say that although aesthetically similiar to minecraft, with alot of the same gameplay elements as minecraft. It is not minecraft at all. In the time up untill writing this review I have made a multilevel portal system using the built in nameable portals, created a chest based item sorting system using the nameable chests, created a medieval thatched cottage with a sloped roof(screw you minecraft stairs) and went to the depths of hell in search of precious metals while avoiding evil pigs, anglerfish, and other pokemon-esque monsters. True it is like minecraft in some ways but that is what makes this game truely awesome. It takes elements from a good game and goes a step up and kind of to the side. Minecraft was not the first of its kind, it helped make the genre popular sure, but this could be the next step in the evolution.

Some points to note:

-Being in early access means things can change
-Your paying for early access, a chance to play it before it goes free to play for everyone
-It has few bugs, but being in alpha it has to be expected
-It has great Mechanics so far
-A butt load of content(11 hours in and still so much I havent seen)
-Runs so smooth, over 60 fps on the highest settings
-memorable gameplay
-Fun respawn mechanic (via a telepad that you can relocate any number of times)
-TELEPADS! You can teleport to your friends, they can teleport to you and it doesnt ever feel like your cheating.
Cons: (Not included things that go along with any alpha)
-No mounts yet (have already been hinted at though)
-Besides combat, few survival elements, e.i. no hunger or thirst system
-Slight learning curve(Although very satisfying when you do figure things out)
-lack of explosion noises(Tnt makes tiny boom)
Otherwise I personally love this game as it stands now. I also give it 10/10

Edit: Now with many more hours under my belt I am happy to report that this game is very little like minecraft. I ran into what I would equate to the Nether in minecraft, I found that I could dig deeper still. Let me tell you, there are places and things down in the depths minecraft would have nightmares about ;) still loving it 10/10
If you guys have positive or negitive experiences you want to share to add to this review I really want to hear them.

Early Access Review
Must be one of the best and most stable/complete games I have seen in a early access and alpha state in a long time, great graphics, runs well, and are updated regularly. The dev team "playfulcorp" also seems devoted into making this a very good game that gives the players what they want in a game like this. And unlike other voxel based sandbox rpg games this one gives you a easy way to play with your friends, just make a world and give it a password and then tell it to your friends and they will be able to join, In this game you don't need to host a server. It is going to be a F2P game so what you pay for are really early access to the game, something im not that happy about since we have to pay to help them making the game better, there was a time when people where paid to help making games better. If they had done as Minecraft and not to be F2P I would have been more OK with it since then you would have bought a unfinished game at a discount to be able to play it before release. So what I think playfulcorp should do is just to drop the F2P and go for sale for each copy and if they want a ingame shop I guess thats OK for cosmetics and so on. Anyway If you have the money the early access are absolutly worth it.

Deep crafting, deep caves, big world, BIG POTENTIAL!

I would recommend it to anywone who likes adventure.
Unlike other games in ALPHA states which is surrounded with bugs. This game doesnt even look like ALPHA. Community always work hand in hand with the DEVS and they discuss it to us too.

For people compalining and giving it a NO because of bug issues. They really dont get it do they? Its ALPHA it always have bugs. Stop whining like a little b*tch and help them out. Thats the point of early access.

Once again, this game a full of potential. Can't wait for future updates!

We all know it is a minecraft clone. What can you do? This game is gonna get better than Minecraft anyways. Wait till you see.

This is a fantastic open world survival game. I loved Minecraft back before the hunger system and most of the new features became a part of it. It felt simple. You mined your materials and built your place. I always had a problem with how hard it was to find resources, though, and not being able to retain significantly lengthy defense felt like it detracted from my experience.
This game isn't close to being done, but I would advise anyone play it over Minecraft.
The visuals are great. It has a combination of the voxel (block) world and 3d character models. The character that you play kind of feels like a blank slate at the moment, but not in a noticeably bad way. The creatures are cutesy at first, then become monsters at night. They can be a hassle while building as they'll sneak into your structure when you're in a menu and kill you.
The progression feels right. Minecraft had that wrong, I believe. This actually has progression. You can only craft advanced items or decorative pieces after crafting the precursory items first. It just makes sense.
Hopefully the game will get a weather system soon and more interactive blocks in nature. Otherwise, it has that same homey feeling some may have gotten playing Minecraft. You will invest hours into this game. I spend many days after work digging, building, and adventuring.
Buy it or wait till it's free. If you don't buy it, put it on your wishlist and hopefully you'll remember to try it when it's free. You should totally buy it. Convince your friends to buy it, too.

I'm sorry that I have bought this game as it sucks wihin the server connection screen. I have tried every possible solutions but none of them can fix the problem. I have played many games via steam and those required network connection / authorization but none of them have such problem. I have wait over a month for their update and hope that it can fix the problem but IT'S STILL SUCK WITHIN THE SAME SCREEN. I buy this game just because it clearly declared that it contain a single-player mode... WHAT'S THE POINT I HAVE TO CONNECT TO THE SERVER WHILE I SIMPLY WANT TO PLAY IN SINGLE-PLAYER MODE!?!?!?!?

Early Access Review
Seeing so many people whine about the minecraft similiarities lemme explain a few things that might make you understand why its okay to fork out cash for a minecraft clone.

1) the makers want it to be free to play so everyone with a purchased copy get double the money back on its full release as DLC style spending money.

2) the game has monster slaying done to a MUCH nicer degree for example a cave-monster you fight in deeper levels will charge a light attack which blinds the player if you dont turn away from it in time. During daytime monsters are peaceful but at night some of them turn a neon colour and become hostile to you making it clearer to players where the threat is.

3) Teleporters. The minute you open the game you can place a teleporter anywhere on the map and teleport back from any location so no more getting lost while harmlessly exploring.

4) Simple multiplayer. this is a big deal no need to have to fund severs each month or have to put up with admins going on an ego trip just so you and your friends have a grief-free place to create. To play together just make a server yourself and friends can join (assuming youve put a password on it to stop randoms showing up) and you can host/join without any hassle or subscriptions.

5) I know your curious about the DLC spending money "will people who pay to play have a broken edge?" the makers did do this at first but due to complaints theyve changed it to cosmetic items rather than game-play necessary items similar to TF2.

6) The game *IS* fully playable at this point even the multiplayer, which a lot of other early access games cant boast.

If this isnt enough to sell you on the game go watch a few youtube gameplay videos, i had fun with this game, the colourful textures and monsters, the interesting combat mechanics and that they gave us a TELEPORTER sold me on it.

I think I'm addicted. I've played this game for several hours and have found that I totally enjoy it!

What do I like about the game:
- Graphics are amazing
- Familiarity from playing Minecraft for so many years
- Crafting system is pretty cool
- Creatures are awesome and cute too
- Its simplicity (once you figure out how to play)

What I don't like about the game (which I'm sure will be fixed eventually):
- Getting started was a bit of a pain to figure out
- Crouching was a bit confusing at first, but I ended up liking it
- Not much else really

I would recommend this game if you love open world/survival/build type games. Will this replace Minecraft for me? Yes.

Early Access Review
Although I haven't played much during the writing of this review, I already find this game extremely fun and can tell I'm going to be playing it for many hours more.

Yes, you might think this is a Minecraft clone. And honestly, it does feel like one. But that's not a bad thing at all, because this game does have very unique features that Minecraft doesn't.


-Very well done style and animation. Seriously, I LOVE the style and animations in this game, very "awe" inspiring, and just cool to look at.

-inovative and extensive crafting system. Yes, at first, you start off with being able to craft very little, but that's because you have very little. The more you craft and collect items, the more craftable features you unlock, which is a huge motive to go out and explore everything you possibly can. Also, I would like to note, I thought it was a little clever that you have to find a workbench in the world rather than build one out of a tree.

-combat is really fun. The one issue I had with Minecraft is the combat didn't seem immersive or engaging. Creativerse's really neat (and adorable) looking enemies may seem pretty simplistic at first, I thought, until I ran into a crab thing that blocked my attacks, and when I was waiting for it to stop, it did a surprise spin attack that killed me. Also, the animation for the combat is really cool as well.

-Very interesting world. Serveral biome types and really cool world generation that makes it fun to explore.

-Caving is awesome! On surface level, you just have your generic caves, nothing much too them. But, the further you go down, the more spacious and vast the caves become, along with more damgerous and bizarre creatures. Oh, and just wait til you hit the level with lava.

-Fun soundtrack. Although it's not the best thing I've heard in a game, it's nice to listen to, and engaging when the combat music kicks in.


-My "personal" experience that's been bothering me is the lag. Not sure if there are settings I could change to help, but I get a bit of framerate lag every so often. It's not game breaking or anything, but just a bit of annoyance. Just keep in mind, this IS Early Access, so there's bound to be updates ahead to fix these issues. Turns out, I had Accelerated Mouse turned on, which really lags up the butt when you turn 180. So, make sure that's turned off, and there won't be much lag. And you'll be able to control where your character looks.

- ...

Seriously, I've yet to find much wrong with this game (other than the lag). Though I haven't played any multiplayer yet (none of my friends know of this game), so I'll update my review once I get into that portion of this game.

So, if you're a fan of Minecraft, or want an endless generated world where you can destroy, build, and fight, then I definitely recommend this game. I don't want to jinx it now, but I only have high hopes for the future of this game.

I have played minecraft for a long time and although this game is not on par with minecraft "yet" (no farms/lifestock/horses/pets or an equivalent for redstone) it does look more prommising and even though it is far from complete i do enjoy it more than minecraft the game has a better feel of progression and has a lot more exploration underground and exploring caves and later on the corruption does give a feel of danger, running in to the "thing" for the first time will make you think again before entering the corruption. there is also a higher amount of different blocks to make your builds with to make it possible to not only make medieval builds but also more modern and futuristic builds ( i know with certain texture packs modern builds are possible in minecraft) but with this game you don't need the extra texture packs because of the sheer amount of blocks to work with (and this is only alpha so more blocks will certainly be added).

the graphics are also a hell of a lot better than minecraft.
And for all the fanboys who think people should stop comparing the game with minecraft because it is nothing like minecraft it is not ment to put the game down it is a block based, survival,exploration,building,crafting game so it stands to reason people are comparing it with the other most popular/ well known block based, survival,exploration,building,crafting game.(although i have to admit if any game can dethrone minecraft from the nr1 possition it could just be creativerse let's see what the future holds i know i'm rooting for creativerse).

even though the game is still in alpha the game feels complete enough to play, little to no bugs for as far as i can see.

for now i'll give it an 8/10 but seeing as where this game is heading that will definately be higher in the near future.

Obviously as with alot of crafting games, there is the simularity to minecraft with the general basics of the game.

But Creativerse does stand out and on its own merrit.

The look and feel is totally unique. Although it has a cartoon-ish feel, it looks really good graphics wise.
The mobs are cute and turn creepy at night.

The crafting system is fun and easy, and I found myself trying to find the next material to keep crafting something better.

Exploring caves and caverns has been alot of fun, especially getting down to the deeper depths with lava.

Very enjoyable.

This game is really fun to play. The few bugs I've come across are no show-stoppers like in so many early-access games. It is really stable. I have put hundreds of hours in Minecraft and also developed a mod for it, but Creativerse works more smoothly and I really like the colours in the game. Also the many monsters in the game looks 10 times better than in Minecraft. It is lots of fun playing this and I recommend it to everybody. The crafting system is much easier and it is fun there is some kind of skill level built into the game. So please people, spend your money on this early access game, it is well worth it. ^_^

At first I was thinking "oh, yay.....another failure minecraft clone" until I tried it out and man, this has to be the best minecraft upgrade I've got my hands on.

FYI: Just a heads up this is not a clone.

PS: Teleport pads help out alot when you got deep into the earth or far into the world.

As of this moment I see the potential to be the evolution of minecraft. I mean this game could be fun and fantastic co op. They had to be greedy and ruin it with a cash shop though. You literally have to wait on extractors and things to mine and build 5 minutes and up. You can of course rush things with their in game mojo points. When you run out though, despite paying 20 bucks for the game. It's either pay to mine or wait forever. Oh well, was fun while the stuff lasted onward to better games.
