  • Why did you make Creativerse free to play?

    Because we believe it is the best way to get our game into the hands of the widest audience possible. However, we do have to pay the bills somehow and that means micro transactions. We’re still experimenting with monetization and will likely try new things down the road. That said, we’re not interested in aggressive pay-to-play mechanics or making players feel forced to make a purchase. In general we will strive for fairness and for keeping the core game experience free for all players.

  • What features are coming in the future?

    From the beginning, our goal for Creativerse was to make the ultimate sandbox game. During early access we are working on defining and building the core game experience. After launch, we will push further into realizing our original vision for the game. In general, we want to make it easier and more delightful to create anything you can imagine and give you lots of ways to share it with the world.

  • Do you have plans to add support for mods or a creative mode? Or bringing the game to other platforms?

    We're definitely interested in exploring the possibility of mods and/or a creative mode. We're also very interested in bringing Creativerse to other platforms so more of your friends can join you in the game. However, these are far out on the horizon at the moment. We're currently focused on developing the core game.

  • Are there plans to add an offline mode?

    At this time we’re not planning to support offline play. Our focus is on providing effortless multiplayer for everyone with no server setup required.

  • How can I get my ideas for the game to you?

    The best way is to start a new discussion thread on Steam, ideally on our Suggestions subforum. We read them all and respond when we can. Alternatively, you can Tweet to us or comment on the most recent status update on our Facebook page.
