Let's Get Playful: Creativerse Launches on May 8th
Playful Corp, the developers behind the popular free-to-play, sandbox game Creativerse, announced today that the game will launch on Monday May 8th. This brings to a close an Early Access phase that lasted over two years and brought the game's community into the development process.
Creativerse is an open world game designed to allow players to build to their heart's desire -- alone or with friends online. The unique multiplayer system allows players to build and share custom worlds both privately and publicly, allowing for a truly customized gaming experience.
While the game is free-to-play, it doesn't follow the typical freemium business model -- opting instead for an item mall format that offers everything from new building bricks, to a 'pro' version that literally gives players wings. There is no pay-to-win here, as the game is feature-rich on its own.
Garnering praise from it's players and the media alike, Creativerse has come a long way from its humble beginnings. Spurning a high-priced marketing campaign, Playful has built a faithful following of over 2.6 million players through nothing more than word-of-mouth and a few odd articles in gaming publications like this one.
Playful is rewarding their loyal Early Access players with an in-game gift -- and in keeping with their quirky sense of humor, the item will be the incomparable Unicorn Sword (a.k.a. The Rainbownator 5000). Players logging into the game from now until May 7th can retrieve their reward from the in game store. Check out the blog post for more details.
