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 or 2019. Much of this depends on player feedback.”

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 developer streams.”

Big news: The 1.3 Friendship Update launches on the 20th of July!

You've asked about it a lot (and we've done our fair share of teasing)! We can finally say that Staxel's 1.3 Friendship Update launches the 20th of July -- that's Friday next week!

There's something for everyone with new villager friendships, summery items, a pet store and a new festival!

What's the first thing you will do when the update hits?

We're getting close to 1.3

Hey everyone, I think it’s about time we gave you some insight into how development of our next major update is going. Spoiler alert: It’s going great!

Just to remind you, this update is not live yet. This update contains some ambitious plans, the main features we mentioned before are:

Friendship and Roomie System

Our next update mainly concerns Staxel’s quirky villagers. We’re adding tons more dialogue content and progression to them and you’ll be able to get to know them all a whole lot better.

If there’s a particular villager you’re getting along with super well, you’ll even be able to roomie up with them!



Pet Shop

This will be the main hub for anything related to your fluffy companion. The store will sell pet accessories, tools, and even some new pets - sorry Fido!
Pets are one of the aspects we’ve received an overwhelming amount of requests to add on to. Having this system in place will mean we can easily add new pet breeds to Staxel without too much fuss.

New Festival

As development continues we’re trying to add more and more festivals. The 1.3 update includes a mysterious new Springtime festival, but I don’t want to give away too much on it just yet. We’re sure you’ll all love it though!

So now that we’ve covered what you’ve got to look forward to, let’s talk about the current stage we’re at with everything.
All of the new dialogue and quests have been written up and are currently with the translators. There’s a whole bunch of new text in this one as you’d expect, we really wanted to put the focus on the villagers and give them a lot more depth. In the meantime, we’re busy making sure everything is implemented correctly and we’re about to enter the testing phase, (we need to make sure that absolutely everything is working correctly and that none of the new features could possibly end up breaking the game).

Besides being busy with that, we’ve been sprinkling in some all-new content along the way! While most of the team are busy with implementation and testing, others have been working on some fun new items you’ll be able to get in the game. (Particularly some Summer-themed ones!) Now, I have no intentions of spoiling all the new content but I can give you a cheeky glimpse at some of the new Summer stuff at least.



Along with these delicious summery treats, we’re adding swimsuits, beach gear, and toys! Take some time off from the farm and go enjoy the beach! Did somebody say water gun fight?

I’m going to stop it here though before I get in trouble.

We can’t wait for 1.3 to go live, we’ve all been working very hard on it! This update contains a lot of changes to how Staxel will be played, and we think everyone will enjoy what it will bring to the table. The villagers are much more fleshed out now, and with another festival in the pool you will all be able to celebrate the release of 1.3 in style!

Thanks everyone for giving this a read, I hope you’re all as pumped for 1.3 as we are! I can’t give you a specific release date, but what I can say is it’s not long now!

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!
