What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Throughout development of The Last Craftsman, player feedback has been incredibly valuable. I'm just a solo developer, so sometimes I focus on the bigger picture and lose sight of the details. I'd like to open development up to players as soon as possible so the game can benefit from the suggestions and feedback of others.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The full game will be in early access for about one year. The early access updates will be split up so that new content is released every couple of months.”

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

“Current plans for the final game include:
  • More Craftsman Ranks (with more craftable items)
  • Additional Floors in the Ruins (with more cards to unlock)
  • More Automation and Machinery Mechanics
  • New Tool Mods and Mods to Upgrade Ruins Exploration
  • Quests to Thwart the Last Craftsman's Plot
  • More Character Customization Options
  • NPC Questlines and Relationships

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The early access game contains several hours of content, including the first 7 Craftsman Ranks, 600 items, 65+ collectible punch cards, the first 5 levels of the Ruins, over 100 equipment mods, collectible clothing, etc.”

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

“Over the Early Access period, The Last Craftsman will receive substantial updates every few months. Once the game is complete (after the 2nd major update), the price will increase.”

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

“I will be monitoring and personally responding to community forum posts and discord conversations with any suggestions or notes about the game. I take a lot of pride in how I interact with players and deeply appreciate the time that they spend with the games I make.”

About This Game

Crafting By Components

In The Last Craftsman, each item is more than the sum of its parts. It's also its parts! Every item has tags that define what it is, Lumber is Wood and Fuel, Pillows are very Fluffy, a Cactus is Spiky. These component parts are what really matter in Gear Springs. Some materials will only be available at certain times, which means the way you craft items and progress will be constantly changing!
