Skycraft

Explore. Build. Survive.

Skycraft is a creative voxel adventure game made in WebGL. It is currently under development; try it out and tell me what you think!

Introducing Skycraft

Explore

The world of Skycraft consists of thousands of floating islands of different types. Each island is unique and contains different blocks, monsters, plants, caves and other features for you to explore and/or conquer.

Build

By harvesting different blocks from the different islands you can craft items and build yourself a huuge house. Or monument. Or castle. Or cave! Because each block is only 1/64th the size of that other popular voxel-game, buildings can be more detailed than ever!

Survive

You are not alone. Islands are inhabited by monsters who are not always happy to see you. But you might really, really need those resources burrowed in the rock beneath their feet... so what do you do?

Coming soon

Multiplayer

Multiplayer will be a very important and natural part of Skycraft. Since you're playing in the browser, inviting friends to your own world is as easy as giving them a link. And you don't have to fiddle with servers!

A living world

Trees will grow, water will flow, day/night cycle, monsters.. the world of Skycraft will simulate many dependencies found in nature, for instance that plants only grow where there is enough light, and that animals need food.

More islands

New types of islands will be added all through the development of the game, with different biomes, buildings, features and monsters. Happy meadowy green island? Check. Volcano-island with a resident evil genius? Oh yes. Hello Kitty island? Well, maybe.

Show & tell

Invite anyone to fly or walk around in your world in spectator-mode. Just give them a link, and they can see your beautiful creation in all its glory, and explore it for themselves!

Scenarios

Create scenarios that others can play in their own instance. Who can get out of the house of horrors the fastest? Who can enter the castle, avoid all the traps and find the treasure? Make your scenario and find out!

More items

Jetpacks, pickaxes, shovels, swords, axes, armor.. and lots more. Maybe even grappling hooks? Guns? Monocles? Definently monocles.

About the creator

@haeric is a Norwegian web developer, computer science student, and now indie game developer. When he is not writing douchy third-person essays about himself, he can mostly be found programming, gaming, working in student organizations, hiking or (sometimes) studying. Since his first summer internship he has been happily engaged to Python, but the last year-and-a-half or so he has been observed having a rather intimate relationship with Chrome Developer Tools and the V8 deoptimization log, leading some to believe that JavaScript might be more than just a fling...

Oh, and he has a blog too. How mainstream of him.
