Craftopia gets big “seamless world” update next month


Publisher and developer Pocket Pair has announced Craftopia is getting a big “seamless world” update for its early access release.

The new update – which essentially sees the game “completely rebuilt”, is launching sometime next month and is the culimination of a year and a half of work.

Here’s a rundown on the new update, plus a new trailer:

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!

Craftopia has been available for Windows PC (via Steam), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox Game Pass for consoles and PC.
