What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“When we first released the Raft prototype, we were simply amazed and overwhelmed by the incredible response from players around the world. Inspired by the community’s support and active feedback, we knew we had a responsibility to grow Raft into the fully realized survival experience those fans deserved. With development now moving at full speed, it’s more important than ever that the community continues to share its valuable feedback with us and that we’re able to incorporate those ideas as quickly as possible. That’s why Early Access was clearly a great platform for this game and now we can continue the Raft journey together!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“One of the most appealing aspects of Early Access was the ability to shape Raft together with the community, alongside our own ambitions for features and mechanics that we’d like to add to the game. Consequently, we’ve decided to keep our schedule fairly flexible so that the development team and community can best mould the Raft experience that we all want to see!”

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

“The Early Access version introduces a solid foundation for Raft. Now with your support, we plan to build an even more unique and exciting experience filled with fun moments and perilous adventure! First, we plan to dust off our compasses and embark on an epic quest with the introduction of landmarks; players will gather clues, set their coordinates and raft towards mysterious destinations! Players will discover stranded ships, sunken cities and caverns filled with treasure, including blueprints for crafting new weapons and equipment! Additional wildlife and other dangers will bring more challenge and new ways to defend your raft. You might even discover a stray animal to accompany you on your journey…
Equally exciting is our plan to offer players complete creative freedom in Creative Mode, a relaxing experience where supplies are unlimited and danger all but removed. Coupled with Steam Workshop integration, Creative Mode will allow you and your friends to really express your craftsmanship together! Above all, we promise to use the Early Access period to listen to you and your feedback in order to develop Raft towards a combined vision.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“With the feedback we were able to gather from the initial prototype, we’ve committed significant development time to ensure that the improved version of Raft is one that fans will really enjoy. Many core mechanics and features are present and polished, but now we want your help to bring the final pieces in to place! The Early Access version of Raft boasts a boat-load of items to craft, crops to grow, underwater secrets to explore, a solid building system and much more! Of course, while much of the game is present and working, we hope you understand that as Raft is still in active development you may witness the odd bug, and features are subject to change.”

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

“While the increasing size and scope of the Raft experience may in future alter the price for late adopters, players who join us during the Early Access period will absolutely have access to the full version of the game, however large it grows!”

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

“During the early development of Raft we’re proud to have developed a reputation for keeping a close relationship with our community. We’ll of course continue this relationship during the Early Access period with regular blog posts detailing development progress and active appearances on the Steam community forums. We also have a Facebook and Twitter page where you can write to us. We will do our absolute best to answer as many of your messages as we can and promise to do our best to take your feedback and ideas into consideration, because we believe that it will lead to the best possible game!”

The Game Mode Update



WELCOME!

We have listened to you guys, and are now bringing new game modes to make for more exciting gameplay in Raft, as well as some much requested gameplay features!

PEACEFUL MODE

Peaceful mode is now a thing. This mode has the same settings as easy mode, but with the added feature of all enemies being passive; so you can enjoy the calm breeze without having to worry.

UPDATED HARD MODE

Hard mode have gotten a makeover: there's now a chance of multiple sharks spawning when you kill one, and the sharks health has been increased a bit (5 hits instead of 4) for it to go away. The shark will also attack in a more frequent, but random pattern, which should make for more exciting gameplay. We aim for this to be a mode where you should think and calculate the chances you take - before you take them. As always, we appreciate feedback, so yell at us if it's too hard. :) Food and Thirst is also harder to sustain, and all enemies have had their damage increased.

3RD PERSON MODE

Third person mode has been added to the game (default key is comma ,) - just take a look here:



FOUNDATION ARMOR

Upgraded game modes, upgraded security. Bruce is annoying in late game, and isn't really a threat to those well equipped to fight him off - for this reason, we have decided to make foundation armor untargetable for the shark: so you will now be able to completely fortify your raft, and not have to worry about pesky shark attacks any longer. Enjoy!

NOCLIP MODE

This one is quite amazing, and we're really looking forward to see how people utilize this. This is only available in creative mode, and allows you to fly around to view your raft, or even build/paint in noclip if that's what you wish to do (default key for this is N) - take a look:



CHANGELOG

:Green_Plus: Added peaceful game mode and updated hard game mode.
:Green_Plus: Added 3rd person view in all modes and noclip mode in creative.
:Green_Plus: Updated foundation armor to be untargetable/immortal to Bruce.
:Green_Plus: Added schools of fish around normal islands as requested by you guys.
:Green_Plus: Added some fall damage to all game modes besides creative.
:Green_Plus: Shark bait now lasts 30% longer in hard mode.
:Green_Plus: We improved loading times when loading into a game.
:Green_Plus: Modified food and thirst decrease a bit to be more fair.

:orwell_check: Fixed an issue with the seagull attacking crops in creative.
:orwell_check: Fixed an issue with lighting (no lights at night).
:orwell_check: Fixed an issue with multiple sharks spawning in non-hard modes.

That's it for today! We hope that you enjoy the update just as much as we have enjoyed making it - if you have any questions, feel free to hit us up in one of the Raft Communities:

About This Game

By yourself or with friends, your mission is to survive an epic oceanic adventure across
a perilous sea! Gather debris to survive, expand your raft and be wary of the dangers of
the ocean!


Trapped on a small raft with nothing but a hook made of old plastic, players awake on a vast,
blue ocean totally alone and with no land in sight! With a dry throat and an empty stomach,
survival will not be easy!

Raft throws you and your friends into an epic adventure out on the big open sea, with the
objective to stay alive, gather resources and build yourself a floating home worthy of
survival.

Resources are tough to come by at sea: Players will have to make sure to catch whatever debris floats by using their trusty hook and when possible, scavenge the reefs beneath the waves and the islands above.
However, thirst and hunger is not the only danger in the ocean… watch out for the man-
eating shark determined to end your voyage!


Features:
● Multiplayer! Survive by yourself or with friends in online co-op!
● Hook! Use your hook to catch debris floating by.
● Craft! Build survival equipment, weapons, crop plots and more to help you stay alive!
● Build! Expand your raft from a simple wreckage to a buoyant mansion.
● Research! Learn new things to craft in the research table.
● Navigate! Sail your raft towards new places!
● Dive! Drop anchor and explore the depths for more resources.
● Fight! Defend your raft from the dangers of the ocean.
