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?

““There are no real games to play, even though there are so many endless-quest-requiring MMORPGs and extremely easy Mobile RPGs, why? Why there are no enjoyable games at all?”, “Those are not the games I was really into.” That’s why we started developing Tree of Life. We have focused on the issue for a long time, day and night, over and over again.

Finally, after 3 years of development, Tree of Life was released in Early Access. With your valuable suggestion, we would like to make Tree of Life near perfect to build the one beautiful world for everyone.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We have a plan to launch Tree of Life officially at the end of 2016 for now.”

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

“Most of all, mastery will be fully implemented, therefore you will be one of important members in Tree of Life world, whichever you choose. Plus, the guild system will be fully completed, you will be able to enjoy various contents like The Mermen attack or Guild War. Then, we’re going to add various enjoyable event, items, etc.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Construction, crafting, fishing, farming, ranching, adventures, The Mermen Attack, bounty hunting, etc. Tree of Life are full of lots of entertainments already. You can be anyone you want to be, depending on how to combine 24 classes in Tree of Life. You can be the last warrior in the world, or legendary master in the world. You can be a wanderer, fisherman or bounty hunter. Whatever you want.”

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

“There is a possibility that it might be changed after launching Tree of Life officially, due to the fact that Tree of Life is on beta now.”

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

“We will refer to the community’s suggestion whenever we face important decisions in the future. For instance, if there are an important balance adjustment, we will analyze players’ data first, after that, we will adjust it.”

[06/30/2016] Adventurer’s feedback

한국어: http://steamcommunity.com/games/361800/announcements/detail/687179183156719006

Hello Adventurers,

It’s me, Alice again! I bring you something good news today: A new adventurer’s feedback! We’re going to update it biweekly. Well, how to prepare the article? Here’s how. First I will collect your ideas, bug reports, suggestions, etc., then pick up some and forward them to our geniuses, then share the answers from them with you. If you would like to read the past adventurer’s feedback, please go : http://steamcommunity.com/games/361800/announcements/detail/687178510919362765?insideModal=0

So, let’s take a look.

==================

Q1. Rumor has it that you’re going to wipe the map and skills again… Is that true?
- From Steam community.

A1. There is nothing to be decided about the 2nd map and skill wipe, then we don’t have any plan to wipe the servers. We will have a discussion about this issue with the community very carefully, only if the new data on the test server won’t be compatible with the existing one, after updating the faction war on the test server first.
- From Chyaya in the dev team


Q2. So I heard that you’re working on the faction war, right? Can you share the development progress with us please?
- From official forum

A2-1. Art


Unique, special and fancy faction emblems will be revealed in the future.
- From Dalraechagi in the art team

A2-2. Game design

Development progress has reached at 70% now, and the test server will be fully available within 1 or 2 weeks. Test server is literally a server for test. Anyone who brought Tree of Life can take part in the test.

In the test server, you will be always able to enjoy the buffs like double EXP or double item drop chance for quick gameplay cycle. The number of buffs and drop changes will be increased or decreased without prior notice. However, there is a possibility that it will be shut down without prior notice, or there will be an expected update. It might be uncomfortable. Thank you for your patience in this matter. The test server will be installed in OddOneGame’s office, therefore, it might be a bit difficult to play in the server if you’re in NA or EU.

Plus, we’re preparing an amazing story behind the birth of factions in Tree of Life world. It would be fun! So please stay tuned for the story.
- From Wonpary in the game design team.

A2-3. Development

Faction and guild war feature have been completed, and it’s facing its feature test. We’re working on A new guild territory feature now. It will be fully completed after analyzing the test data, after updating it to the test server first.
- From Chyaya in the dev team


Q3. Extremely low latency and high lag in Icy Wind Snowfield. Please explain it to us. Why?
- From many adventurers, including DaDemBi

A3. Checked. Thank you for reporting the issue, and we’re fixing the issue ASAP. Also we would like to inform you that we’re going to optimize the entire world one by one in the future.
- From the dev team


Q4. The pic of the day: Alice’s choice

I’ve picked up several pics in this week. Just take a look. +_+






- A cart, besides faster travel, has a higher capacity materials.
Design by Igor Amorim

Thank you for the super-duper cool screenshots! ♥♥♥

Ok, that’s all I have for now. See you next time, bye~

About This Game



  • Make your own village, anytime, anywhere.


    Thinking of building your own village to show your workmanship? Oh no, you feel like that all buildings on the street are kind of grand castles? If so, it’s time to play Tree of Life. You can make your own village anytime, anywhere. You can also be anyone. You can be a lord who rules a huge grand territory, or make a knight guild to protect the ToL world. What about a village for wanderers? Whatever you want!



  • The one beautiful world.


    Yes, our world is not perfect. It is full of dangers. So, it could be a good way to explore the ToL world in your room. What about the desert? Come and feel the sunshine, chase a mirage, find unique cactus and shooting stars… If you prefer the North Pole then the desert, why don’t you explore the snowy field on the North? Please keep in mind that you should bring your warm leather clothes. (… be careful with bears!) Can you feel it? Just explore the world!

  • Player-based Economy


    Are you tired of endless battles? But you still want to support your guild as one of guild members? If so, be a master, then move the entire economy of ToL. Build and maintain your own farm, then generate food to support your guild. Or just be a grand merchant, then transport goods across the whole world, or be a master who make good weapons in legendary level. Whichever is fine. That makes the economy.

  • 24 Class combinations & No restrictions


    World best warrior in the realm, legendary master, 5 star chef… You don’t really know which one fits you? Well, have you ever thought why you can’t be a mighty warrior and 5 star chef at the same time? Like... a chef who catches a big brown bear with his bare hands. As you want, you can be both of them N.O.W, since there are 24 job classes in the world! With no restrictions! YAY~~~ You can make your own character as you like.




  • Be a friend, or be an enemy. That is the question.


    The real world is full of difficult choices. Yes… but what if the Tol world is, too? You can be a good friend with other players, or just be a night watchman to protect the new world order, or offer a reward for criminals to bring the justice. Depends on your choice. However just be careful. Anyone could offer a reward for you!



  • Fight against your enemy!


    Grand castles always win a lot of praise. Even monsters will envy you, thus please keep calm and don’t panic, even though they begin the war to take your territory. This would be a superb chance to be the best knight in the ToL world! Be a hero by defeating your enemies who try to take your grand castle.


    So, get ready for Tree of Life? Just play your own game, make your own world. In Tree of Life world, you can be anything whatever you want to be, and you can do anything whatever you want to. Yes, it’s time to play REAL RPG. Don’t miss the chance to live your second life. PLAY NOW!

Posted: June 29
I spent basically 300 hours on this game. As a level 45 sewing character i can finally craft myself some crude linen cloth.

If you know what crude linen cloth is, you will understand my review.

If you don't, let me explain...
When you first start the game and you kill something, you get yourself linen cloth. This can literally be achieved in less than 5 minutes after starting a new game. After you get 6 pieces of linen cloth you can "sew" them into one linen cloth roll. This is the first crafting thing you make for your armors, less than 30 minutes into the game. Consequently this linen cloth roll is bad quality ("crude") because your skill level ("sewing") is only 1 out of 50.

After spending 300 hours you will be level 45-50 sewing. Very high right, there is no way you will make bad "crude" quality linen cloth right? WRONG. 300 hours later you will still make bad quality ("crude") linen cloth rolls.

In other words, you have just wasted 300 hours and your first ever crafting recipe at level 1 is still giving you garbage because the devs are too busy partying in hawaii to care.



The best part? before some update a few months ago or last year you actualy used to be able to get rare items if you were high level. But why reward a 300 hour grind? amirite trololololol


edit: I found this list online, it gives an accurate example of patch changes since launch for this game:

1.We put too many features in the early access. Remove tons of content!
2. Too many criminals? Nerf crime so criminals appear friendly.
3. Bows better than melee? Remove all damage from bows!
4. Two-handed weapons deal too much damage? Make them deal less than one-handed weapons!
5. Also, we've nerfed one-handed weapons to deal less damage too.
6. World isn't big enough! Announce world wipe shortly after launch but give no ETA.
7. 1500 durability is too much. Lets drop it to 150!
8. Arrows too easy to make? Drop stacks to 20 a pop!
9. Ok, ok. We'll raise stacks back to 80 but you can't feed chickens for feathers.
10. You needed those feathers for walls? Sorry, collateral damage.
11. People are eating and healing too quickly. Put a cooldown on everything (apples/eggs/etc worthless).
12. Still too many criminals. Add yellow mechanic so more criminals appear friendly.
13. Dying as red now makes you lose days/weeks of exp.
14. Improved cooking! But these foods will still be unstackable.
15. Too much crime! Lockpicks use oil? Make oil only drop if you know ranching (and tell no one).
16. There is too much quality floating around. Lets nerf lv 50 masteries to be like lv 25.
17. Players should work harder to craft arrows they've already worked hard to unlock. Make quality arrows 6 feathers!


Through these changes you will notice a miracle has taken place, where an almost perfect game has literally been stripped of it's content and destroyed with nonsensical changes. This folks, is a reversal. Modern games after release get better and better, but no, OddOne developers are hipsters, they want to go against the grain and make their good game worse.

Well played OddOne, you trully lived up to your namesake.

Simply read the majority of others reviews. You'll see how little the devs have delivered their original vision. The vision that made me and others decide to purchase this title.

I have been silently hoping for a long time now that this game would improve.
I love the ideas that were initially put forth about this game by the developers, but my love has been crushed to many times now.
I have slowly lost hope in this game's future and my disappointment has reached a point where I have finally decided to leave a review of this game.

This game is indeed creative and unique in it's approach to the survival crafting genre, that is the only positive feeling that I still have about this game.

The game is worst now than it was when it was first launched over a year ago, this game's developers are incompetent in that they have not been able to fix a single exploit or bug in this game since they've launched it on Steam, they also lie about promised future content in the game.
Banning hacker and or cheaters in the game, a lie
AI monster villages, a lie
AI mercenaries, a lie
New X4 map size, a lie
Guild wars, a lie
Server upgrades to accommodate PvP, a lie
Future character skills, a lie
Communication with game's players, a lie
The list of lies goes on and on, but I've become so callous to their lies that I cannot even recall most of them anymore.

They have also betrayed this game's players several time now since it's launch.
First by tweaking PvP in the game so players who defend their property become criminals themselves for attacking any criminal who assault them or their property, which is ridiculous.
Then a few months later they effectively destroyed base defenses overnight by eliminating more than half of a bases primary defenses ie: arrow towers in an unannounced update in the middle of the night.
Then they created a new map in which over 70% of cannot be built on or viewed so players cannot even harvest resources on that 70% of the map.

The game's store has items for sale that cost over twice as much as the game itself cost, which is ridiculous too considering they cannot even maintain an amount of players above 100 on any of their three servers.

Since this game's beta release the developers have practically stopped updating this game, and have also stopped even attempting to curb the rampant hacks, cheaters and grieving in this game, which has driven every new player away from the game, and caused the last few veteran players to lose hope and finally quit playing too.

Don't waste your time or money on this game, like I already have !

Avoid at all costs, while the game does have some positive aspects to it, the developers have basically made no real improvements in the past 2 years. In fact they have somehow made the game less finished that it was 2 years ago, by removing parts of the world.

Ok so when considering this game its important to look at a few things so here goes...

-Pros-
1- Can build your own base wether you be solo or guild oriented

2- Mastery system lets you chose your skill in the game become an asset to those around you

3- Easy to use crafting system

4- PvP oriented game if your into battling others

-Cons-
1-Updates are scarce

2- Some clunky mechanics still exist in game

3- While its pvp rich it does leave open to griefing

and you know honestly I am gonna stop there cause as your reading reviews on this game what you need to pay attention to is the time played by each of the posters....I love this game otherwise I wouldnt have spent so many hours playing it

And others leaving bad reviews some of there time ranging into the 1k plus hours of gameplay... they are leaving negative reviews based on the fact patches are scarce... they must like it otherwise ask yourself why would they have spent so many hours playing it...

Dont be fooled into thinking the game sucks... it does not its actually an amazing concept and if they continue working on patches it will become even better

So use your own judgement... but pay attention to hours played in every review... how can a bad game be bad if someone was willing to put so much time into it lol :)

I've put off writing this review for a long, long time because I've very mixed feelings about it.

I've played this game since early Alpha release (around July 2015) and have around 1500 hrs in game over two accounts (this takes me up to about 6 weeks after the Beta release).

Firstly I'll start with the good / what I like about the game:

GOOD
1. The game has awesome scope to build a base / castle / home. You have pretty much got total freedom to make any layout of your choosing and you can design the base for looks or to be safe from raiders / thieves from a strategical standpoint.

2. There are a variety of skills / professions to chose from... around 20 (some not fully completed though at the time of writing this). So for a guild of about 8-10 people, everyone is valued and becomes a valued member of the team, which is important for the social aspect of this game.

3. The environment / different biomes looks great.

4. The crafting variety is very good.

5. The variety of weapons and corresponding weapon skills is quite diverse.

6. The map is relatively large.

7. The community liaison person (OddAlice) is very nice and works very hard.

Here's the bad / what I dislike about the game:

BAD.
i. The lag. There servers are often laggy when a moderate number of players are online (say 400-500). There are also random lag spikes and FPS drops for no apparent reason. Note: I am aware the game is not optimized yet (I'm running a top of the line Alienware rig, so it shouldn't be an issue for this game).

ii. The crafting system is currently a little buggy and its almost impossible to craft higher quality items.

iii. There is a desync when fighting (both PvP and when fighting PvE monsters). It is almost impossible to hit someone who is moving, so unless you both stand still and take it in turns trading hits, battles are pure frustration and become boring fast.

iv. There are many small bugs that are not very significant but very irritating that have been around since Day 1 and have not been fixed (despite people calling out for them to be fixed on the forums).

v. The developers do not communicate with the player base. They are silent for long periods and tend to only reply when there is a massive uproar with the players. Then the response is often vague or scant on content.

vi. The developers appear to be more focused on tweaking existing features / graphics, rather than fixing the small bugs mentioned before or adding new content.

vii. There is practically NO END GAME CONTENT.

viii. The profanity filter on the game chat is overly sensitive, so censors non-offensive words.

iX. At Beta release the developers covered 75% of the map in mist. You cant view these areas properly and you cant build on these areas. It's a huge annoyance to everyone who plays.

X. The game is a little too grindy. I dont mind grinding in a game and this is Korean so I understand and expect it to be a little grindy. The grind in Alpha was just about right, but in Beta they made it way more grindy.

Xi. Forever chopping trees... many joke this game is actually a lumberjack simulator. This is ok when you are in a large guild, but because a serious pain in the a$$ if you dont have 5+ players.

Xii. The recent milestones released by the developers appear to take the game in a very different direction to how it is currently or how it is referred to in their reviews and promotional videos. I know this is early access and things change, but this could take the game in a totally new direction.

Xiii. Mice infect your base if you are offline for about 12 hrs. After 24 hrs your base starts losing HP. This is VERY irritating.

Xiv. The devopment team are very small so new content is VERY slow and recent comunication suggests patches for new content will be every 2-3 months.

Xv. Patches / hotfixes to date appear rushed out and untested. This results in very buggy content and usually every patch is followed up by a hotfix.

TL:DR:

PvP is broken due to the desync. Its been like this since Day 1 and little has changed in over a year to fix this. There is no end game content (guild wars etc.)

PvE is currently broken as the crafting is buggy, you cant build on 75% of the map and there is no end game content (like quests / dungeons / bosses etc.)

So all in all I give this one a thumbs down. This is on the basis that over the past year, not a lot of core features / funamentals have been added and major bug fixes are still not dealt with (desync). Also, the last 2 months of Beta suggest a similar approach will be taken this year.

I suspect the developers dont have the resources to deliver on their promises so I am doubtful this game will make it over the line or it will be realease in much the same state it is in now.

I would LOVE to be proven wrong though...

Posted: June 6
Been playing this game for a month now. I started playing this game with some friends. Our guild camp has been fortunate enough to survive so far but I can't say the same for our neighboring guilds. We've seen atleast 8 different guilds that started playing around the same time we did and end up quitting as soon as they're base got griefed or destoryed by bully guilds (Mainly some guild called Ironborn). The entire map is filled with abandoned camps. Mostly noob camps that ended up quitting after getting griefed. There are so many abandoned camps it is very difficult to find a large enough open spot to build camp.

This game is fun as long as you either play with a large group of friends or you can join a large established guild. Otherwise, you're just sitting duck basically collecting mats for the big guilds to steal and/or destroy. It's not a possibility, it's a guarantee. This game seems to be filled with bullies who enjoy destroying peoples work, just to do it even though there is no benefit whatsoever.

The game has lots of serious flaws. When I first started playing I caught several people stealing or killing my animals on my property. When I attack that person, I'm the one who is awarded a criminal record. Speaking of criminal records. When I mentioned that there are no real consequences for griefing, bullying, stealing or destorying other peoples property, criminal records do not last long at all. Criminal Record debuffs last between 30 seconds to a few hours depending on the severity of the crime. I dont know why they called it Criminal Record because your crimes are not recorded. After the debuff wears off, there are no records of any crimes you committed.

Overall, I can't recommend this game. This is a sandbox game but you are very limited on how or what you build due to available open space or having your buildings destroyed by bullies. The map is not very big and there are too many abandoned camps. If you're thinking of purchasing this game, all you have to do is go on their Community Hub Discussions and you'll see what kind of people play this game.

I'm pretty sure some people are just blindly downvoting this honest review

*****DISCLAIMER*****
I will edit this review as changes to the game are made. My current opinion is neutral, however that is not a recommendation option, so I currently opted for a thumbs down.

This game has its ups and downs. I do support the game however I do not recommend this game for everyone. Currently my opinions reflect the most recent milestones post by the Dev, which changes the direction of the game completely. I understand this is early access however the community is currently dwindling

Pros
  • Building system is great for a sandbox, and will only get better.
  • The ability to spec into several professions is awesome.
  • Dynamic tree planting/regrowth/creep/terraforming is awesome (We turned the desert into a forest temporarily)
  • Guild Territories surrounding your structures.
  • Creative / Strategic players can make stronghold bases that are not easily penetrable.
  • Has a tendency to have a very dedicated and outspoken community

Cons
  • Lag / DSync / Exploiting is rampant - In terms of live PvP the netcode is terrible and unplayable.
  • The devs have repeatedly promised things and when they don't meet the deadline, they simply ignore the community.
  • There is a fog/mist covering about 75% of the map right now. You can get about 2 weeks of content in this game before you hit a plateau and or brick wall.
  • You pretty much need to be in a big guild in order to accomplish much in the game.
  • Only one character per account
  • The devs advertise 24 fully created classes however only 22 are active, and the rest are not even fully functional.
  • Updates are few and far between compared to many active Early Access games.
  • The Communication from the Dev team is horrible. They put all of the communication on one person (OddAlice) who has nice intentions, however several players have been offended by poor translations that come off as culturally inappropriate.
  • Let me reiterate communication between the community and devs is an issue.
  • They say your opinion matters, however you would rarely know.
  • There is a split in the community between hardcore PvPers and Passive players. (I suppose this will be fixed with the alliance update
  • The cash shop is stupid expensive.


All in all, I have enjoyed my time playing this game. The politics required to get yourself and your guild anywhere get exhausting after a while, but I suppose some changes expected down the road might help. There seems to be a huge social/cultural split between English speakers / Brazilians / Russians / Chinese which makes several people uncomfortable when they can't get into a guild because of their country. There is a lot of raw human nature you will become aware of in this game that people feel uncomfortable with because there is a real lack of direction when it comes to social interaction. There is not a large griefer/racist community, however that is what the PvP/Cultural split might be referred to. It is not an easy game to play, and it is easy to pass blame onto the PvP/Racist reasoning.

I promise you the game is great if you have the patience If you catch the game on sale get it. Do not buy this at full price.

I'm so tired to try to make this game better for any member of our guilds, for ppl who start... But can't anymore... Played for 1 year, cause thought developers would finish what they started, this game have / has a huge potential, but failed cause they didn't know what to do, the game has lots of griefs, pvp unbalanced, no content pve, no end game stuff, the sad part of the story is, there's no game like tol, so I tell you just sit and wait, don't waste ur money... Cause this game has no future, u gonna walk for 2h and not gonna find any player, everyone have left the game, only Asian sever survives with 200\250 players.

EARLY ACCESS REVIEW:
I've tried unsuccessfully to write a review for Tree of Life for some time now. I originally added this to my wishlist because I was greatly interested in the sort of "World of Warcraft" style graphics coupled with the idea of an engaging survival game. Unfortunately for me, the game just doesn't live up to what I was looking for. In fact, this will probably be my only negative review on Steam so far. I tried my best to like the game, I really did, but here are some brief points about the game, some positive, most negative:

-Completely abandoned community/island/area. Nice if you like being alone, but still oddly errie to see hundreds of abandoned buildings.
-Lack of single player, lack of private servers. This is the main reason I dislike the game. I like playing alone sometimes, and frankly would like a private server with friends.
-Too much relies on other people. Not enough options for people who want to form small clans.
-Combat is clunky and broken.
-Music is very good but annoyingly repetative. Drives me crazy after a few hours, and have to turn it off.
-TONS of typos, TONS of spelling errors, and complete failure in translation. I give them a break on this since they aren't an English-based developer, but it's so annoying. The description for the french fries actually made me roll my eyes so hard I fell out of my viking ship.
-Good graphics, good animations, doesn't feel dated. I like the cartoony feel.
-Game requires WAY TOO MUCH wood. Everything takes wood, lots of wood. Game should be called "Tree Cutter Simulator 2016"
-Misty areas/foggy areas can seriously go take a hike. They provide no value-add at all.
-Mining sulfur makes you want to /wrist. In fact, mining iron, or any "high tiered" anything makes you want to /wrist.

The list goes on, but yeah, at it's current state I don't recommend this game. Maybe in a few updates, maybe in a few months, maybe in a year, who knows.

Nice game and fun in early stages, boring like hell late game.

Fun Crafting system but no end game content.

I buyed this game a couple of months ago and almost no game content was added. There was a couple of very very very small hotfixes but nothing more.

Most of the map its cover by an annoying fog that hurts your eyes.

I do not recoment this game since the development of the game stoped.

Good luck if you're just starting out in this game or stepped away for any length of time. You won't be able to find a spot of land to build on because everyone wants to take over as large a piece of territory as possible. Don't waste your money.

Steal other people's stuff. Destroy their stuff. That seems to be the only enjoyable thing to do for a high level player, cause that's all I see.

I feel like I have wasted my money to get this game. There are so many abandoned base and the whole map seems messy. Players inside this game dont have their passion at all, they are only doing their own work and wont try to communicate with others. THIS CONDITION ELIMINATES MY PASSION OF PLAYING THIS GAME.

BORING GAME, NOT RECOMMENDED.
