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?

“We want to give players the opportunity to already play our game in the course of its development. This allows us to see which game elements could benefit from further development, or what possibly needs to be changed, so that we can adapt the development accordingly.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“As long as necessary. In other words, the game must remain in the “Early Access” phase until it shows fully adequate gameplay and all our planned features have been largely implemented.”

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

“The full version guarantees the player that he/she is also getting a full-fledged game, which means that all the important features have been implemented, and all the serious bugs eliminated. There will however most likely still be updates later on to simply continue improving the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is currently still in Alpha stage. Many important things are already present; for example, the basic technical structure as well as game elements, such as the structural system, are fairly well developed. Some game elements that are essential for fully adequate gameplay are nevertheless still missing.”

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

“In one word: yes. The price will reflect the game’s current stage of development. This means that small price increases are planned upon reaching the Beta stage (which can also be still be regarded as Early Access) and upon reaching the final version.”

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

“Consultation with the community is very important to us. Our forum, where all kinds of discussions can be initiated, is provided for just this purpose. Players can also report all kind of issues there, ensuring that bugs come to our attention and are eliminated as quickly as possible. We take the community’s needs and criticisms very seriously.”

Update 0.9.4: Fishing, boats and more!

Hello folks!

Finally a new update is available. Sorry for the long delay, getting the update ready took longer than expected, but it introduces some quite interesting features.

Fishing is now available in Rising World. This means you can craft a fishing rod and use it to catch fish. There are six different types of fish available, and you can use a bait (earthworms, which spawn randomly while raking the ground) to increase your chances to get a fish. There is also a chance to obtain a small pouch, which contains valuable loot.



We also added a small rowboat and a motorized inflatable boat. While the rowboat only has room for a single passenger, the inflatable boat has enough room for up to 4 passengers. Currently the inflatable boat does not consume any fuel, but this will change in the future.



Apart from that, the environment temperature plays a big role now. Going into a snow biome with insufficient clothing can kill your character. Going to a desert with thick clothings causes your character to dehydrate faster, accordingly. But even a rain shower during night has a negative impact on your body temperature, so keep an eye on it and take appropriate measures (make a fire, wear warm clothes etc).

There are a few new items, like a semi-automatic rifle, a medkit, consumable pumpkins (you can cut them into edible slices) or new haircuts for your character.
This update also contains several important changes: For example, you are no longer able to access items or chests through walls. We also updated the hit detection for melee weapons and tools, and changed the movement to prevent players from abusing the "jump spam".



Of course there are several bugfixes and smaller changes, too. Tnt is now more useful since it can now be used for mining (i.e. explosions caused by tnt spawn ores / stones).

As usual you can find a full overview in the changelog below.

Last but not least this update introduces many changes and additions to the plugin API, you can find a separate changelog in our forums.

We're still working on a better npc AI btw (which is required before we can add more enemies to the game, especially human enemies). You can check out our roadmap to get an overview of our planned features (although it only contains major features).

Stay tuned for the next updates :)

Update 0.9.3: Look at my horse!

Finally the mounts update is available! It introduces two horses as well as a camel and a donkey. In order to ride on a mount, you have to craft a saddle first. There are optional satchels available which can be attached to the saddles to provide some additional storage space.





We also added a few new items, a binocular, a telescope and a steel sledgehammer, as well as a riding helmet. Apart from that, there are 8 new music tracks for underground dungeons, and various other changes: For example, posters support more levels of transparency now, which means you can place semi-transparent posters in your world. There are also some commands which are useful to edit existing construction elements (e.g. flip them, change the texture etc).
Last but not least, you'll find some smaller additions in this update, e.g. changes to some weather effects.



It's our intention to improve the npc AI now, which will allow us to implement more hostile npcs, especially human enemies (e.g. bandits). Trains, cars and boats are also on our list, as well as some other features, so stay tuned for the next updates!
