Raft - Update Steam 5 - (28/7/2018) Read More

  We are introducing multiple new building blocks this patch - triangular half foundations, roof, floors as well as the ability to place all building blocks diagonally. You can now fulfill your dreams and build a true round light house, or make the awesome boat / house you have always wanted to build!

  We have added a Help Center button to the main menu and in the pause menu. We have also added the ability to leave the game without saving - so if you encounter an issue, you can safely leave the game without having to worry about saving a corrupted world, etc! We have tons of articles that are updated regularly with information about issues and how to fix them, as well as common questions over at the help center. You can now also submit a ticket and report any bugs or issues you come across directly to us developers!

  We all know that the dear shark is public enemy number one, even though he just wanna be your new best friend. We hear you, and have increased the respawn timer from 100 seconds to 180 seconds, so you get room to breathe (or dive) before he comes back to eat your raft hug you! 

  We have added quick build and paint, so you will now have a much easier time building your awesome rafts without having to destroy your precious left click.

  Changelog - (Improvement)

  • Added Help Center Button to main menu and in-game.
  • Added "Save World" when exiting the game.
  • Added new triangular and diagonal blocks.
  • Added option to turn on/off QuickBuild.
  • Added option to hide or show Name Tags.
  • Added Quick Paint and Quick Build (for those who didn't know).
  • Added a load icon for the loading screen.
  • Increased shark respawn time from 100 to 180 seconds.

  Changelog - (Fixed Bugs)

  • Fixed a Shark Head Duplication bug.
  • Fixed a bug making it so you didn't get seeds from planted food (watermelon and pineapple).
  • Fixed QuickBuild placing multiple doors inside each other.
  • You can no longer hook an item and jump in the water for infinite durability on the hook.
  • Smelter should not have collider active when being placed.
  • The game no longer loads your items twice upon loading into a world.



Raft - Update Steam 1.03 - (29/6/2018) Read More

  It is a little more than a month since the release of Raft and it has been great! We have been getting an incredible amount of amazing feedback and ideas. We have talked to so many of you, discussing balancing, getting help pin pointing bugs and hearing about what you think should be added and it has simply been great!
However, we are not just talking here at the Raft HQ. We have also been very busy working on new content for the game. Last week we posted a concept of a new enemy. If you missed it, here it is again!

  The new enemy is due for a later update. But that's not all. We should also have a blog post up next week revealing more things which are going on behind the curtains. Stay tuned!
For now we have got some smaller additions, bug fixes and balance changes many of you have been asking for. Firstly, many of you have asked us to boost the axe, because it broke too fast. We agreed it was annoying when building larger Rafts having to constantly make a new axe. But instead of simply adding more durability to the old axe we decided to make a new one, the Stone Axe. This will have similar speed and durability as the old axe. In turn, the old axe will now be renamed as the Metal Axe. It will cost a little bit more to make but has better speed and much more durability. Hopefully you will like our solution, but if you do not, or if you have an idea on how to improve it, please comment!

  Lastly, some of you have run into the problem of having random Steam friends join your game. As a solution to this, you can now add a password to your world. Also, if you have unchecked "Allow friends to join" you will no longer appear in the Join world window at all, allowing you to play in a more incognito fashion.

  Changelog - (Improvement)

  • Discord button added in the main menu.
  • Shark no longer takes damage in creative mode.
  • Bow damage increased from 7.5 to 15.
  • Seagull health increased from 10 to 20.
  • Bow is cheaper to craft.
  • Decreased how much hunger/thirst is lost when sleeping.
  • Increased spawn time between sharks from 60 sec to 100 sec.

  Changelog - (Fixed Bugs)

  • Fixed an inventory bug when crafting items which led to losing more items than the crafting cost.
  • Fixed a bug where the player can rotat the camera 360 degrees turning him/her upside down.
  • Fixed a bug where closing a storage "froze" the game and locked the player in position.



Raft - Update Steam 1.02 - (11/6/2018) Read More

  It is once again time for another update! One of the most requested features since we launched here on Steam has been the ability to change the field of view. There were some technical issues with changing the FOV which is why it has taken a little longer than we hoped for, but we are pleased to say it is finally here. 

  Changelog - (Fixed Bugs)

  • A bug where the binocular overlay image could some times be stuck even when not using th binoculars should now be fixed.
  • Removing a research table should no longer cause a player using it to get stuck in the research menu. 
  • To balance the bow, the shark now swims deeper when hit by an arrow from above water.




Raft - Update Steam 1.01b - (1/6/2018) Read More

  What a great week it has been! Raft released a little over a week ago and seeing all the things you have built and hearing about your experiences in the game has been nothing less than amazing! While it seems most of you have had quite a smooth run overall, there has been some pesky bugs here and there. The past week we have been working tirelessly to eliminate as many of those little bastards as possible and we want to thank every one of you who has been so helpful with sending us bug reports and feedback!

  Apart from fixing a whole lot of bugs, we have added the possibility to hide the UI for more cinematic screenshots by pressing the period button '.' (Point)

  • Debris, abandoned rafts and islands no longer spawn in creative to increase building performance.

Raft - Update Steam 1.01 - (25/5/2018) Read More

  First of all, thank you for an incredible launch! It has been amazing to see so many of you play the game and your feedback has simply been awesome! We have got an update for you. We have added something many of you have been asking for and hopefully it can add even more flare to your rafts! The ladder! It will allow for more compact ways to travel between different floors and it looks pretty sweet on a raft. We hope you find it useful!

  The option to change where your frame rate is capped has been added. It can also be disabled all together by setting the slider all the way to the right. In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation, a button has been added in the main menu which allows you to disable the sending of analytics data to the developers.

  Changelog - (Improvement)

  • Playing in creative no longer counts towards achievement progress.
  • Holding a throwable anchor while shark destroys the foundation it is placed on no longer breaks the game.
  • You can now bind a key to "ESC".
  • Changing resolution is no longer reset when entering the settings menu.

  Changelog - (Fixed Bugs)

  • You can no longer "duplicate" water by drinking and watering plants at the same time.
  • You can now have the period '.' character in world names. (Fixes the issue with save files appearing lost).
  • Removing bed while some one is laying in it no longer breaks the game.




Raft - Update Steam 1.00 - (24/5/2018) Read More

  After more than a year in development, Raft is finally out on Steam! With a bunch of new features such as multiplayer, islands, abandoned rafts and much more we are excited to let you once again jump into the life of raft survival!

  Weโ€™re incredibly happy to finally have the new version of the game out there again! Thanks to the amazing response we got on the prototype, weโ€™ve been able to develop Raft into the game we envisioned from the start, and we canโ€™t say how glad and humbled we are to have been given that opportunity. Therefore we want to give a huge shout out and the biggest thank you to everyone who played the game, gave us feedback, donated and motivated us during development. Your support has been amazing!

  Even though the game is now out and miles better than the prototype in every aspect, development has not stopped. Raft will continue to grow during the Early Access. With the coming addition of more wildlife and equipment, more places to explore and more things to craft, weโ€™ll continue to build on the foundation that weโ€™ve just released. With the help of your feedback, we will strive to make this the best game we can possibly make.

  With that said. We thoroughly hope you will enjoy Raft and we canโ€™t wait to hear what you think about it!
