Big Announcement!On 5 September, 2017 by Redbeet
We have some huge news for you all today! We are super excited to tell you all about it, but first, have a look at our brand new teaser trailer!
Raft is officially coming to Steam Early Access in 2018! Our Steam page is now live and it feels great to finally have it up and running! It’s important to mention that the game is not yet available for purchase. However, if you want to be notified when it launches, please add the game to your wishlist by simply following this LINK and clicking ‘Add to your wishlist’! If you’re a frequent visitor of our blog, you’ve already seen a bunch of stuff that will be available once the game hits the stores, but you’re in for more! Leading up to release in 2018 even more features and content will be added, enriching your survival experience. Keep an eye on this blog or follow us on FACEBOOK, TWITTER or INSTAGRAM to keep up with the development and learn about all the upcoming additions to the game!
When Raft releases on Steam it will have online co-op multiplayer! You and your friends will be able to survive the ocean together! No longer will you have to endure the vast sea alone! Multiplayer is a feature we have always wanted to add to Raft and many of you have asked for it for a long time. However, implementing multiplayer is a huge and difficult task for our small team and we weren’t sure if it would be possible for us. There’s a lot of different ways of developing online multiplayer and we’ve spent many hours researching which would be best for us. A while ago our programmer started working on implementing multiplayer onto our existing features parallel with adding new ones. It hasn’t been an easy task but we are now at a stage where we can finally say multiplayer will be available in the Steam version of Raft!
AXOLOT GAMES WILL PUBLISH RAFT!
We are pleased to announce that Raft will be published by Axolot Games, the developers behind the hugely popular game Scrap Mechanic. When we first met with Axolot Games to discuss this cooperation we quickly felt this was a perfect match. As they already have a lot of experience and passion for survival games, their support will help us turn our, and your, vision for Raft into reality. However, it is important to mention that we are still the same team working on Raft. This partnership and exchange of ideas will simply strengthen both games as we continue development.
NEW WEBSITE AND BLOG!
For a long time our website hasn’t been getting much care and it’s been a bit messy. Luckily that has now changed as we now have an official website for Raft! You can check it out right /HERE/! With this there’s also a new blog. But don’t worry about finding it, because if you’re reading this you’re already here! This place is where you’ll find all Raft related news from now on. However, we will also continue posting on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as soon as there’s something new here!
In celebration of this announcement there has been a small addition made to the Itch.io version of Raft. If you look hard enough, you might be able to find the Scrap Mechanic Duck to decorate your floating home with. So get out there and find it! To accompany this, Scrap mechanic has also received a new item to add more flare to your creations, the Shark Trophy, so go check that out as well!
We hope you’re all as excited as we are about the future of Raft! As always, tell us what you think and share the word! If you’re too excited for more Raft to wait until the next blog post, there’s some fresh screenshots up on the Steam page!
Have good day and we’ll talk to you soon!
