The studio believes that its Island Creator, downloadable freely from Steam, marks “the first time a game has allowed the player community to have such a profound impact on a persistent, shared universe,” though we’re pretty sure you’ll be down in the comments in 20 seconds proposing examples that at least come close.
“At the start, there will be more procedurally generated islands, but through the Island Creator we’ll definitely be including islands created by the community, even before the game is launched,” says Bossa. “Our plan is to add new islands submitted by the community every month, so we expect the balance to soon grow in the favour of the community. We released the tool exactly for this reason.”
