Raft game folder should look like this:

Raft data folder (V1.05b_Raft_Win64_Data) should look like this:


That might be because the raft prototype is no longer being developed or updated (hasn't been for almost year and half now) and the developers are busy working on the commercial Steam version of the game:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/648800/Raft/

If you've extracted the archive correctly, you have following files in your raft game directory:

V1.05b_Raft_Win64_Data (folder containing all the game's data files)

ReadMe.txt

V1.05b_Raft_Win64.exe

If app.info and other data files are in the same folder as the executable (they need to be in the V1.05b_Raft_Win64_Data folder), you've extracted the archive wrong.

I'm pretty sure there used to be wiki for itch.io version but can't find it anymore. It has probably been replaced by wiki for Steam version https://raft.gamepedia.com/Raft_Wiki

“Will players who have played or donated on Itch.io receive a free copy of Raft on Steam?”

We very much appreciate all the support and feedback we have gotten from our community, however, playing or donating to the itch prototype will not grant access to the Steam version of Raft.

The prototype here is free, the Steam version costs money.

Sounds like your computer is overheating and shuts down to prevent components from being damaged. You should try limiting fps and trying to lower settings.

I also suggest you post in Bug Reports sub forum on Steam instead of here. I doubt devs check this place much anymore if at all.

Yes. There's over year worth of development since itch.io prototype was abandoned. For one, you sail around with your raft in Steam version while in itch.io prototype your raft is static. There are various weather conditions, small islands to explore and there's stuff under water around islands. There's also plenty of new tools, equipment and things to build. Steam version also has CO-OP multiplayer support.

You can not. Best you can do is send the save to one of your friends and they host the game while you're not present.

There are problems with shaders and other problems making builds for Mac/Linux. Devs don't currently have the manpower (it's 3 person team) to test, debug, fix, compile and maintain any other builds besides Windows.

“Will Raft release on Mac and/or Linux?”
We are first and foremost focusing on Windows. We would like to support more platforms in the future but due to certain parts of the game making porting more difficult we cannot at this time give any promises.

Once you've researched everything and found the end game goal, only thing left is build bigger and better raft. Currently anyway. If you're not into base building, you probably go through available content pretty fast. For people who like to build, content lasts as long as they don't tire of it (remember all those gigantic building projects on Minecraft like 1on1 model of enterprise or working computer in game or hundreds of other massive things people build with it).

Just to clarify. You did not buy it, you made voluntary donation to support the developers. Itch.io raft has always been free with option to donate. And no, those who donated wont get a key for Steam version.

Please make suggestions related to Steam version in Ideas subforum on Steam: https://steamcommunity.com/app/648800/discussions/2/

itch.io version will no longer be updated (it hasn't for over a year)  and Steam version wont be free.

Unfortunately not. Devs encountered numerous issues with shaders and other errors trying to make Linux builds. They can't support Linux right now due them lacking the manpower to maintain builds for other platforms beyond Windows. They hope to do so eventually though.

It's free prototype and haven't been updated for over a year.

As far as I know, you can't currently.

Please post Steam version bugs in Bug reports subforum on Steam: https://steamcommunity.com/app/648800/discussions/1/

Sorry to burst your bubble but it'll cost 19.99$.

"We can also announce that Raft will be sold for 19,99 USD. "

Those tags are USER DEFINED and developer has nothing to do with them.

More than likely, yes. Though itch.io version will never be updated again.

Yes, you have to buy the Steam version.

Currently devs can't make any promises about Mac/Linux port of upcoming Steam version:

If you meant the itch.io version, there is not going to be any more updates to it as they state on the store page:

"We are not releasing any new updates on Itch.io as we are working towards a Steam Early Access release. "
