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.”

[2016-10-20] Adventurer’s feedback

Hello, adventurers,

We picked some hot topics among the community, trying to answer your questions with this Adventure’s feedback. Thank you so much for your suggestions and reports!

If you would like to read the last week's feedback, please go to:

Ok, let’s take a look.


Q1. Hi, Oddone. Since 1 st Sept, we have no update/patch except the hot fix. When will the next update come? I know you are working with some interesting features. How is it going now?
- From the ToL Steam community

A1. We have an update next week for Halloween. It will be full of fun. Plus, balance patch/hotfix once every 2-3 weeks. Another contents update will be uploaded on the test server first by mid Nov for a test. The update schedule will be arranged as the test runs.

Currently the developers are focusing on the new combat system. And the monsters will have improved AI, and they become clever: this makes a battle fun. Also they are working on the network improvement to reduce lags or solve other issues.

The following update will be early next year. The main subject is to add the special skills and improve the game physics. The skills are a little secret, but I am sure you will like it. Plus improved Merman invasion, NPC visitors who you can interact with, multi-passenger mounts that you can run across the lands and the Ghost town will be updated. Tutorials, sfx for your actions and many essential features will be updated. Improvements on Cooking/Farming/Collecting and the new Cooking system (and the buffs) will come next.

We are working on fun and enjoyable contents now and keep working to present the new features to you. We know you are waiting, but please be little more patient and be with us.
- From Wonpary in the game design team

Q2. In the last feedback, you told us about the test server. I am really excited! When does it open? Did you delete my character data in the PTR? I’d love to play my character again: I had so much fun with him
- From the official forum and a fansite

A2. The test server is open by next week. As mentioned in the previous Feedback, the server will be open all the time (except maintenance works) The PTR build will be almost same as the live one, as the new combat system is not included yet.
Your character information has not been flushed. You can see your character once you log in to the PTR. Note that the data in the server could be initialized.
- From Wonpary in the game design team

Q3. Regarding the weapon durability increase, I have a different opinion. I think it would be better if we got more resources regened, rather than the durability increase. Let’s say it took 30min to craft a sword (including mining, logging, etc), but takes 10min to use it up: this is nonsense. The durability increase makes it 30min to use up, but the resource increase reduces the craft time to 10min: the point is the equivalence. But I prefer craft more & mass use more, because it allows us to level up the mastery more quickly.
- From the ToL Steam community

A3. It is a good idea. However, anyone will want to keep/own a good item as long as they can, and I agree with it (personally I want to keep my Legendary sword forever…) As an RPG, the game needs to stimulate the desire of possession. This is why the durability increase has been planned.
But it is not true that every weapon will have higher durability: it is involved with the tiers. The durability of crude (grey) and normal (white) will stay the same, but Rare and above will last longer. The food buffs and other features/system will help you collect the resources.
- From Wonpary in the game design team

Q4. I’m an Axe user. I finally unlocked the Iron hookaxe at level 28 of blacksmithing, but I was disappointed, because a Strong iron one-handed sword seems better than the Iron hookaxe. Why does the “lower level” weapon deal more damage than the higher one does?
- From the official forum

A4. A weapon with the prefix of Strong is the strongest weapon in the same material tier. It needs more resources, thus it is stronger. However, I understand it makes you confused that an Lv 24 sword deals more damage than Lv 28 axe. We will improve the system; make it clear and easy to understand.
- From Wonpary in the game design team

Q5. The pic of the day: Alice’s choice
Lots of nice screenshots are on the Steam community! Let’s take a look. +_+

Ok, that’s all I have for now. See you next week!

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!

Early Access Review
Posted: September 30
Any current reviews you get on this game from anyone who has played it (even from it's beginnings) that review is going to be incomplete because the game is currently still in Beta.
But as of now: This is my updated review:

This game currently has a broken war faction system for PvP players.
A broken base building system for PvE players and PvP players.
And, two customer support and public relation staff that are adept at ignoring the broken features in this game and cherry-picking player feedback to pass on to it's developers.

Ive put well over 2,700 hours into testing this game so far and will say for myself that:
Even for the price, its time to admit that it's been an extremely disappointing game for me.
If you enjoy the survival genre of games, well then don't try this one it has morphed into a Sim's doll-house game.
It's base building has changed into something like a literal child's sized sand box where it is so small that you cannot even navigate through its buildings with your character once all of the buildings have been placed.
If you play in the neutral faction then your base's gates will not even close to keep out undesirables, (and) any player can also jump over your base's walls to get inside.

Most of the features that I once enjoyed about this game's base building have totally morphed into a pathetic graphical copy and paste kindergarten finger painting.
However the rest of the game's map graphics are fair, which makes the pathetically small bases look like trash heeps.

The game has improved a lot recently only in one area: when it comes to player grieving, but that is about all that I can praise about this game currently.

About this game's PvE:
Basically in PvE at lower character levels you are going to be building your base and gathering resources to level your primary and secondary skills.
The base building introduces you to the first bit of what this game is all about, which is a horrible repetitive grind, this grind persist through out the game no matter what your character or base level is you are always grinding away at chopping trees and rocks to progress in this game.
I've put a lot of time into playing this game and two thirds of that time was spent grinding away for daily needed resources, and half of the remaining one third of time was spent petitioning it's support staff to pass player feedback along to the game's developers.

At higher character levels of PvE you will more than likely be trying to find one of the few remaining players still playing this game, find them to trade with for finished crafted items that your allotted skill points will not allow you to craft.

About the game's PvP:
PvP is not forced, you can switch from the neutral faction to any of the three war factions if you want to try the game's broken PvP features too.
Factions are not map-zone specific either, you can build your extremely small doll-house looking base in any of the map-zones no matter which faction you choose to play.

Basically in PVP at all character levels, it revolves around three war factions competing for relics that give all of the guilds of a specific faction who currently holds one or more of the many relics, it gives those guilds a certain buff in the game. That buff is depending on which relic or relics are held by that faction.
But in this game almost every base on the map has chosen one faction, so there is literally no competitive PvP in this game what so ever anymore.

About the game's Map:
The game map is vast so you can fill a lot of your time exploring it when you are not grinding away for daily resources or trying to find one of the few players left still playing this game to interact with.

Actually its very unfinished, but i hope the best

Things you can do:
-Skill your points up
-Build a base

Things that are missing:
-Real enemies
-Some action
-Maybe some quests

Its nice, for sure. Got a lot of potential to turn out great and i believe in the creators. Ye, actually the fun is missing because theres not much to do in it and the active players i knew quittet and its hard to find new ones.
But its early access. What should i say? "Uh, sorry. Expevted perfection for an early access game?" Naaah.

Quittet it actually because i dont have fun anymore and will join later when theres more to do ;)

The direction of this game has changed drastically since its early release in the Summer of 2015. While this is to be expected in an early release title, the developers have decided to hinder the players by limiting their ability to freely build cities and outposts. You are constrained to a small radius around a "tree" where you can build. The only way to expand this "sphere" of influence is to pay a copious amount of gold to the tree. Weapons and armor break far quicker than before, rocks and trees are more difficult to harvest, and the grind to gain high level skills is extreme.

This game went from 3000 people playing a day, to less than 100. If you wish to purchase this game, do not expect to find many people to play with.

A very nice game going towards a very different direction of survivals now a days.

All the old players with negative reviews, i get their point. Its not what they paid for, not the game original idea.

But the game is definitelly NOT getting worse for some non-hardcore players, that cant stand losing what they had while offline or even online due number difference. There are already plenty or hardcore survivals out there that meet this game previous system, so im all into the new changes they've made.

In the game current system, you lose freedom but gain security, I'm definitely into that. I rather not being able to build freely all over the world during the week to lose it all in minutes, and build in a restricted area but that unles im willing to risk it, its there forever. =D

With the faction system you can enjoy the game peacefully or join into PVP as you wish.

There should be a middle term tho, not everyone that wants to PVP wants to risk their lands so, maybe a system where u could be a faction soldier, then u could kill or be killed by opposing factions but you couldnt get your base destroyed or destroy others bases. The current system would be the faction siegers. But thats for the forum. =D

Anyway, give it a try, its grindy but there is plenty to do, dont let this game die just because its dead for the majority of old players default opinion of a survival. There are plenty of those in the market already. Im only here because they made this faction system.

Recomended! =D
