Today at the Indie Live Expo, PocketPair the developers of Craftopia unveiled a full trailer for the Seamless World Update. And with that trailer showing they have posted to the Steam page that the Seamless Map Update will be released in June 2023.
That is right! We will have the Seamless World Update available in less than a month.
Now there are no details on how this will be available. I believe in the coming days more details will unfold as to whether this will be on Alpha first in June or if there will just be a short Alpha and then it will be released. Also no word on availability on Xbox for this update.
As details arise I will update this post and also post to my Twitter account.
Here are the details released so far and the video of the new trailer:
Thank you for playing Craftopia! After over a year of development, we are finally ready to announce that the Seamless Update, the biggest update ever for Craftopia, will release in June 2023! It's been over a year since the last major update, and in that time, the game has evolved into an almost completely different game. Craftopia was released into Early Access in 2020/09, and since has undergone a difficult but exciting development journey. At first, we endeavoured to update the game on a daily basis but soon found that this approach was not sustainable. As we continued to improve the game, there were many problems that we just couldn't solve in the short term, so we took some time off and worked hard to make the game the best it could be. One year has passed since then. In order to solve the problem of "moving islands isn't fun", which was the feedback we often received, we radically revised the game (or almost completely rebuilt it), and at the same time, we took your warm requests such as "the combat is boring" or "XX is unpleasant" seriously and steadily revised the game point by point. Finally, after a year and a half of work, we've finally reached the point where we feel we can present to you once and for all! We will continue to update the game, taking your feedback into account, so thank you very much for your support!
I can honestly say this trailer makes it look like a completely different game. I’m hoping that they have worked hard to make sure new bugs were not introduced and hopefully, this is all a refinement and not a complete overhaul so we have to go through months of patches and updates.
