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.”

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!

Share the Fun!

Working a farm on the outskirts of an unfamiliar village can get lonely, so why not invite your friends to hang out? Staxel was designed with multiplayer in mind from day one, so team up and get your buddies working those fields! You can share a farm with your friends or become neighbours in Staxel’s vast world.

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!
