Axolot Games, creator of the popular Scrap Mechanic, and Redbeet Interactive today announced that seafaring sensation Raft will release worldwide on Steam Early Access (Windows PC) on May 23, 2018.
Raft is a unique and hugely popular survival game in which players are thrown into an epic oceanic adventure and tasked with surviving a treacherous sea, either alone or with friends. Trapped on a simple raft, players must gather debris, scavenge reefs and grow crops to survive and build their own floating home. Oh, and be wary of the man-eating sharks!
The free alpha version of Raft has already been downloaded more than 7 million times from itch.io and become a huge hit among video and stream creators everywhere.
The Early Access version of the game has been updated with many new features, such as the addition of Survival, Creative and Multiplayer modes.
André Bengtsson, CEO of Redbeet Interactive said: “The response to Raft since we first released the alpha has been simply incredible. We can’t wait to finally launch on Steam Early Access and continue to turn Raft into an even greater experience.”
In Raft, players and their friends are thrown into an epic oceanic adventure and tasked with surviving a perilous sea! Gather debris to survive, expand your raft and be wary of the dangers of the ocean!
Trapped on a small piece of wood, with nothing but a hook made of old pieces of plastic, you wake up on the vast, blue ocean. You’re totally alone and there is no land as far as the eye can see. The water is calm and all you can hear is the faint sound of waves and a gentle breeze. With a dry throat and an empty stomach, survival will not be easy!
