Version 1.1 is live, and CraftWorld is FREE!
Our latest patch went live today, version 1.1 and so did the free version of Craftworld! The free version is not the same as the paid version, because it IS the paid version of CraftWorld. It is a seperate download from the marketplace:
The 1.1 patch addresses engine issues, bugs and provides a few tweaks amount other things. It you are still carrying the survival guide book, open it up and have a read. Its been redone, and contains all the crafting templates at the back. Also, craft a camera and have some fun with the paintings, the images you take appear on the painting at all times. Be it in your hand, on the wall or dropped on the ground in addition to the image landing in your phone’s media library.
You might notice that despite the content increase (mostly the book) , the download size remains small, smaller actually. We moving towards more procedural content creation, and trying to make the game more modder freindly in the long run. We are not ready for PC just yet, but we must bear these items in mind even when on unrelated platforms.
If you do manage to get a crash, you might notice the logs it puts out have been beefed up. Bugs and crashes are inevitable, especially with a game still in development, these huge feedback messages just ramp up our ability to find a solve any issue that does appear. Old bugs will be crushed by the weekly updates, but new ones will no doubt appear as we add more features. We write unit tests, perform playtesting and compile with the static analysis dialed up high, but we are ambitious with what we intend to add.
Both CraftWorld free, and paid are the exact same version. Same features, some items, same code. When an update goes out for one,it goes out for the other within 10 minutes. We will not grant bonuses for one or the other, nor penalise you for playing a particular one by denying functionality to either. The updates may be approved hours apart, but that will be under Microsoft’s control, not out own. The free version includes one ad during gameplay, which is how we generate revenue without your purchase. So by you simply spending time on your doom fortress in Craftworld Free, your are supporting further development. Animals, ladders, torches, multiplayer, dynamite, magic, XP points and more are all goals for Craftworld.
