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 want to give players the opportunity to already play our game in the course of its development. This allows us to see which game elements could benefit from further development, or what possibly needs to be changed, so that we can adapt the development accordingly.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“As long as necessary. In other words, the game must remain in the “Early Access” phase until it shows fully adequate gameplay and all our planned features have been largely implemented.”

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

“The full version guarantees the player that he/she is also getting a full-fledged game, which means that all the important features have been implemented, and all the serious bugs eliminated. There will however most likely still be updates later on to simply continue improving the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is currently still in Alpha stage. Many important things are already present; for example, the basic technical structure as well as game elements, such as the structural system, are fairly well developed. Some game elements that are essential for fully adequate gameplay are nevertheless still missing.”

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

“In one word: yes. The price will reflect the game’s current stage of development. This means that small price increases are planned upon reaching the Beta stage (which can also be still be regarded as Early Access) and upon reaching the final version.”

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

“Consultation with the community is very important to us. Our forum, where all kinds of discussions can be initiated, is provided for just this purpose. Our own bug tracker is available on our home page, ensuring that bugs come to our attention and are eliminated as quickly as possible. We take the community’s needs and criticisms very seriously.”

Upcoming: Dungeons and Plugin API

Hi folks! A new update will be available soon, but today we want to give some information about two important upcoming features.

Dungeons
As you know we're currently working on dungeons, they're going to be available very soon. This includes various underground dungeons, underwater ruins, but also other "abandoned" buildings like old shacks in the woods. Here we have two preview screenshots for you (still work-in-progress):





Plugin API
We are also working on a new, Java based plugin API, which will replace the current Lua API. The new API allows you to create custom "gamemodes" and influence the gameplay, basically it can be considered as a "lite version" of Modding. The first release of the plugin API allows you to (among others):
  • Take control of various events
  • Create custom gui elements, including images
  • Place and move custom 3d models in the world
  • Get full access to the world database
  • Query keyboard events of a player
  • Spawn items and modify player inventories
The new API will have a proper documentation from the very beginning, unlike the current Lua API.

Stay tuned!

Update 0.7.2: Fuel requirement for furnaces

Hi folks! A small update is available. This time it's mainly about furnaces: Now you will need fuel in order to use a smelting furnace. Currently you can either use coal or lumber to fuel a furnace (you find a small hatch on the left side of the furnace).

This update also introduces a new, bigger version of the smelting furnace. Apart from that, we did some smaller tweaks and fixed some bugs, you find an overview of all changes in the changelog.



Have fun :)

Changelog:
  • [New] Smelting furnaces require fuel (coal or lumber) now
  • [New] New object: Big smelting furnace
  • [New] Dedicated server now accepts input commands (say, yell, tod, saveall, shutdown [now])
  • [New] Total amount of available/existing servers now visible in server browser
  • [Change] Half-filled canteens can now be refilled at watersources
  • [Change] Removed some debug output messages of dedicated server
  • [Change] Decreased timeout for servers in serverlist (so high ping servers no longer delay the result)
  • [Bugfix] Fixed invisibe door placement indicator
  • [Bugfix] Fixed whitelist/blacklist issue in multiplayer
  • [Bugfix] Fixed items sometimes spawning multiple times in multiplayer
  • [Bugfix] Hopefully fixed furnace bug ("ghost" ore remaining in furnace) in multiplayer (need Feedback)

This game is a realalistic minecraft done right, the blocks look good and are smaller so more detail can be put into buildings, and you can mine out great looking caves instead of everything being square and bad looking. The realalistic textures on the blocks look fine and fit well. Lastly, the developers of this game are great. Please buy this!!!

I am not much of a reviewer, but this game really deserves a big thumbs up for the devs. They've done a great job with this, and have not slacked off on development. Every so often there are cool updates that make a difference and this world is just astonishing.
I thought this was going to be a 'prettier minecraft'. Wow was I wrong. This is such an incredible environment. The big brain-freeze, is that this thing is in it's infancy! I can't imagine how it is going to look and play in another year? 2 years? Holy crap.
My wife and I just play together for hours on end. Expanding our first world, making new ones and exploring, and we spend a lot of time just plopping down a campfire, a shelter, some garden furniture, and 'making camp' as night falls and just watching.
Yep - this is a game that absolutely compells you to take time and just watch the unbelievable sunsets, sit in the glow of the fire, listen to the crickets, and watch the stars. Utterly amazing for such an early release.
If this is your kind of game, then you will be in heaven. I have a feeling this is going to be much more than anyone expected. Just with the open scripting and model nature I have already seen astounding worlds on multiplayer servers. This is going to turn into quite the unfolding saga - Oh yeah, I highly recommend this if you couldn't tell. :)

If you like building and the idea of a more realisitic looking version of Minecraft, then this game is for you. Servers can also be heavily modded with scripts to make online communities way more interesting.

Reviewing the game in its current phase.

So I am a big Minecraft fan and wanted something similar but not as blocky, a friend recommended this.

I started off setting up my game with the option to enter a random SEED (I love this feature) - this gives me a unique world everytime, making the game endless.
I spawned with some basic tools, axe, pickaxe, I chopped a few trees down, smashed a few rocks and built myself a very basic home out of stone, i used the wood to make my crafting table, furnace and other tables. found some water melons which was a god send as I was hungry and thirsty, after i replenished my hunger it was getting dark, i setup a camp fire at my home so I could spot it in the night, i went on a little tour of the area to see what was around. Afterwards i returned, made a standard bed to sleep in then continued the next day looking for iron and coal so i could melt it down. found coal and iron, currently melting it in the furnace and am ready to shape some of these metals so i can make new tools to aid my survival

great game so far, very excited about it

This is a crafting and exploration game that I'm really enjoying. There are updates from time to time that add functionality or features and it's exciting to see the game evolve. There are a few glitches, but to be honest, I like them, and will maybe miss them if they're ironed out.

Rising World is very open world with plenty of different biomes and seeds to discover and exploit. You can mine and smelt ore, farm crops, build houses and even use pictures from your own computer to decorate your dream home.

It is intuitive to play, and there's plenty of resources as well as a whole active community to draw on if you're stuck.

It's great as it is, but there are obviously loads of things in the pipeline to make it even better in the near future.

I buy early access titles based on what they are rather than what they're planned to be, so that's how I'll review this one.

Graphically, the game looks very nice, but runs very slow on my laptop with integrated (intel HD3000) graphics. There's not a lot to do in this game except to go into creative mode and build stuff, but that in itself is kind of fun. There are quite a number of blocks, props, and other building options in the game already. As a former pen-and-paper RPGer, I was able to build a lot of things that I had created years ago in my imagination and actually SEE them, which was awesome. Castles, dungeons, inns and taverns... you name it.

So... in it's current state, is it worth the current price of fifteen bucks? I think so, but I'm Alaskan, so my idea of the value of a dollar is skewed. I've got roughly 30 hours into it, so that's about fifty cents an hour. In my mind, I could spend $15 to destroy my body with fast food, destroy my immortal soul with alcohol, or destroy my mind with video games.

Or, (my personal favorite) all of the above, please.

Well after having just finished a session with my buddy, which went for about 4 or so hours, i can definitely say i can recommend this game. i admit, it does feel quite bare at the moment, with only having about that 4 hours worth of gameplay, probably more if you are into building alot, but i would say for the content it already has, and how solid the whole thing felt, it is surely a great early access game. placement of blocks, workbenches etc went smoothly, including the multiplayer session, not a single hiccup. everything works correctly and works well, im looking forward to see where its headed.

Looking forward to watching this game grow and develop further, if the devs keep at it could be an excellent survival game. Still a few kinks in its current state but still very fun building and exploring the caves. 10/10 would buy again

Rising World is a lot of fun. Even though it's alpha it's pretty much fully playable. The only problem I ran into was fixed very quickly by the developers. Very reminiscent of Minecraft, but more realistic world and graphics. I'd recommend it.
