We’ve been covering the supercute voxelbox Staxel for the last year of early access, so what a joy to get to say that it’s actually formally launched as of today. I’m extra happy to look at my Steam account and remember I already bought it and should probably log in. Yay!
The game is reminiscent of Stardew Valley, in a 3-D voxel setting, with construction, hunting, farming, shopping, and questing, and while it’s not a traditional MMORPG, you can play multiplayer just fine.
Coinciding with the launch is a huge day-one patch updating magic crafting, adding new friend NPCs and pets, implementing in-game mail, kicking off new festivals, padding the in-game calendar, and opening new zones. Oh, and if you hate jumping puzzles, definitely don’t go into the Arcade mode!
