    About Crashlands

    Craft, battle, and quest your way through Crashlands, a sprawling, outlandish adventure overflowing with sass.

    Become Flux Dabes, a galactic trucker whose latest shipment gets hijacked by a chin-strapped menace named Hewgodooko, leaving you stranded on an alien planet. As you hustle to retrieve your packages you’ll become enmeshed in a nefarious plot of world domination, which will require all of your wits and both of your glutes to overcome. Learn recipes from the local sentient life, uncover ancient secrets and deadly bosses, tame everything and build yourself a home-away-from-home as you learn to thrive on planet Woanope.

    Key Features:

    • Self-managing, infinite inventory
      You'll spend none of your time in the world of Crashlands managing your chests, forgetting where you put your gems or rustling through your knapsack for that special gadget. Your inventory is infinite, manages itself, and retrieves your tools when you need them, so your actionbar can be full of useful things (LIKE TASERS). There are over 500 craftable items to build!
    • Intuitive building and decorating
      Don't bother placing things block-by-block. Crashlands takes the tedium out of creative expression and replaces it with frictionless building so slick you want to use it as a lubricant for your car.
    • Intense combat and tameable creatures
      Every creature in Crashlands can become a trusty sidekick. Steal an egg, incubate it, and create your very own adorable, murderous bundle of joy. And then milk it!
    • Huge world with huge problems
      Four sentient races, three continents, an epic bid for the future of the planet, and you - strapped in the middle, trying to deliver your freakin' packages. Take your time to dive into the sidestories of the characters you meet or just rush headlong into making that special delivery. There's a lot to do and discover on Woanope!
    • Crossplatforminess
      Don't want the fun to stop? Crashlands is also available on mobile - the exact same game, with your cloud-synced progress - so you never have to stop!

    What makes my game unique?

    Crashlands is a 60-hour crafting RPG adventure that takes the possible scale of mobile games and blows it way up! It's an open, procedurally generated world with dozens of characters and over 50,000 words of ridiculous, engaging story. On top of its scale, the game innovates on the classic Crafting / Survival design by giving players a self-managing, infinite inventory - so they can spend their time playing, not organizing all their goodies. And if that weren't enough, Crashlands helps bridge the gap between PC and Mobile with crossplatform save syncing - providing a truly portable experience that can be enjoyed anywhere a player wishes.

    Why could my game win an award?

    Crashlands was crafted with attention to every wayward design element and detail. The result is a deeply engaging, refreshingly huge and funny experience unlike anything on mobile. And its reception has been phenomenal - with a metacritic score of 95, Crashlands sits among the highest rated games ever released on these platforms. With its technical achievement in crossplatform saving, Crashlands pushes forward the idea of platform agnosticism, letting gamers truly play wherever they like.
