Numerous improvements to the Editor and Visual Scripting make sure that YOU can create any adventure you set your mind on - easier and quicker than ever before.

Update 1.2 - "Astonishing Adventures" major features

  • Fantasy assets: we have added numerous new blocks to help you (re)create any fantasy setting you can think of
  • Fantasy compositions: to get your creativity flowing, we have added new fantasy themed compositions to the workshop
  • New creatures: we have added Golems, Goatmen, Wendigos and Woolly Rhinos to the game - use them in your own creations or meet them in an Exploration game
  • Elves: NPCs can now have elvish heads - essentially introducing a brand new race and higher NPC variety to the game
  • Advanced particle editing: change, edit or create brand new particle systems, attach them to weapons or any other elements
  • Editor improvements: we have added many quality of life improvements to the Editor like selecting random versions of an object when placing in the Editor (so you can have randomized forests when placing trees, etc.), snap to terrain, custom UI improvements and more - not to mention massive optimizations done to the terraforming tools
  • Editor additions: new features like the ability to publish your game from within the Editor, the ability to add text, numbers and even images emitting from entities and much more
  • Platform improvements: the ability to create 20 person multiplayer games or single player games with persistent data saved across sessions
  • Numerous fixes: the ability to turn off persistent avatars (after a player left the server) and countless bug fixes and improvements
