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

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Staxel is an ambitious game designed to give the player a lot of creative freedom. We feel that we’ve reached a good level of polish, but content-wise, our vision for the game is far greater in scope. Our goal for Early Access is to keep expanding the game while listening to you—the player—to pinpoint our priorities.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Completion of our currently planned additions will take us well into late 2018. Much of this depends on player feedback on our roadmap, so this section will be updated throughout the Early Access period.”

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

“While Staxel already features dozens of hours worth of activities, we have many more thoughts on how to expand its world. We plan to increase the number and scale of quests, add more interaction with NPCs, and give more focus to animals and husbandry.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Staxel is fully playable, stable, and already has plenty of content to keep you playing for hours. Our goal for the full release is to realise the entirety of our vision for Staxel, but we're already confident that you'll enjoy the current version!”

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

“No, the game will retain this price throughout and after Early Access.”

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

“We regularly collect player feedback from a multitude of channels, including our active Discord community, feedback forms, and social media. We will continue to do so, with the addition of frequent developer streams. We aim to provide a detailed roadmap in the near future, which we will finetune in collaboration with the community.”

Mines, Steam Testing & Doors - Staxel Reporter #37

Hey everyone! From now on we will be posting each Staxel Reporter to Steam as well. The Staxel Reporter is a blog we've been keeping for over two years, and we will keep posting them for all news about the game and team.

Enjoy this month's post, which details the exciting inclusion of doors, mines and getting the game ready for Steam.

______

Mines
It’s been said that if you listen carefully, you can hear the faint echo of Winters whistling away while he works tirelessly beneath the surface, creating the mines which will soon be gracing the landscape in Staxel.

Mines are a completely new addition to the world-gen. We felt that, although roaming a massive, unspoilt island was a beautiful concept, it needed the human touch of hard work and industry.

Let’s have a look at how he’s getting on, shall we?



That’s a pretty large-scale operation going on there.
Let’s take a closer look, but keep your voices down, we don’t want to interrupt his flow.



It definitely seems like there will be interesting stuff to find in there whilst exploring, but I think we’ll leave that for another day. Let’s get out of here before Winters hears us snooping around.

Steam testing
A lot of you will know that we’re getting very close to releasing Staxel on Steam. Nerve-wracking as it may be, we need to knuckle down and make sure we’re ready for it, and that means fixing all the bugs and finding the ones we don’t know about.

We’ve recently started sending out Steam keys to a small number of people who’ve already purchased Staxel on the website. This has already given us invaluable information and some great feedback to work with.

If you haven’t received a Steam key yet, don’t worry! It won’t be long until you get yours when we launch on Steam. In the meantime, if you have found any bugs or issues you think we should know about, or you just fancy hanging out with us, why not come and join the Staxel Discord where we have a dedicated #testers channel to help with the cause!

You can find the link to the Discord at playstaxel.com or just click on the image below!



Doors
Yup, you heard it right. Thanks to Moocow (and the masses of you who’ve requested it over the last couple of years) we finally have working doors implemented!

You can see a piece of the action in the .gif below.



Inspiring, isn’t it?

The doors currently open and close automatically when you approach them. This might change in the future but it was the easiest way to get them in quickly without having to put the NPCs through “How to Open Doors 101”.

One resident in particular will definitely benefit from the added privacy this feature brings.



That’s it for this issue of the Staxel Reporter. You can grab ‘Staxel – Sprout Edition’ at http://www.playstaxel.com/store.

Or you can wishlist us on Steam by going to the Store page (link below).

Thanks for reading!

About This Game

Staxel is a creative farming and village life game with a cast of quirky characters. Build your farmhouse, help villagers, take to the wilds to fish or hunt for bugs, and grow a variety of crops in your backyard. If you’re feeling social, you can even invite your friends over to share in the fun!

Experience Village Life


In Staxel, you’re tasked with restoring the farm to its former glory as the newest resident in a budding village. While they may have their quirks, the other residents will help you get settled in. Return the favour and help the village flourish!

When you’re not hanging out with your newfound friends or working on your farm, you could be pursuing a new hobby, completing one of many collections, spending your hard-earned money on precious seeds, or lending a hand and making your mark on the town!

Nurture Your Farm


Put down your roots and settle into life as a newcomer to the village. Starting out with a run-down, old home and farmland reclaimed by the wilderness, it’s up to you to turn the place around. Plant seeds, carefully tend to your crops, take care of your animals, and expand your farm. Don’t forget: take care of your farm, and your farm will take care of you!

Customise Your World


Staxel’s voxel-based sandbox world lets you alter your surroundings however you like, and with a rich selection of in-game materials and an intuitive approach to modding, you can truly create your own unique world within the game.

Will you grow the village while keeping its rustic charm, or take it in an entirely new direction? Perhaps you’d rather leave the village and focus on your own projects? It’s all up to you, and your creativity is exactly the tool for the job!
