Cozy crafting simulator Vexlands releases demo


Explore the open world in the upcoming cozy adventure Vexlands.

Vexlands is set to release in early 2024, for Microsoft Windows (through Steam). The demo can be played right now through the game’s Steam page.

You can view the announcement and trailer below:

Vexlands, the open-world cozy crafting adventure developed by Emberheart Games and published by Apogee Entertainment, unlocks an Early Access launch window on Steam for PC, GOG and the Epic Games Store in early 2024. Adventure awaits eager explorers in the new demo available now.

Venture to the four corners of the cozy-yet-sometimes-perilous Vexlands. As the lone survivor of an unknown calamity, scour the once-bountiful landscape for resources to rebuild a flourishing homestead. Discover story-rich artifacts that tell of your ancestor’s disappearance, and conquer mighty challenges to become an unbreakable adventurer. Or…y’know…just go fishin’.

Scrape together valuable materials and head to the trading post to exchange goods for gold, and spend hard-earned coins on new parcels of land. But there’s a catch! These procedurally generated plots are much more than patches of grass and rocks. Each territory contains both helpful and harmful echoes of the past, now awake once more.

Pray for the best (like treasure chests and dungeons) and plan for the worst (like enemy spawn points) as each unlocked tile introduces permanent elements to the ecosystem. Every playthrough is different thanks to procedurally generated surroundings and dynamic weather. A lightning strike can destroy buildings or transform resources into supercharged rarities.

Vexlands will be available on Steam for PC, Epic Games Store and GOG in early 2024. Until then, intrepid explorers can download the first ever demo during Steam Next Fest, October 9th-16th, 2023.
