Heeeeeellooo Rafting people!
We hope you’re all doing well! First of all we would like to say it’s awesome how much amazing feedback we got regarding the characters we showed in the previous blog! We’re very glad you like them and we hope you’re as excited as we are to play them! Your feedback helps us create a better game and supplies a ton of motivation, so keep it coming! This week we have some stuff to show that many of you have been requesting for a long time! So lets get straight to it!
Since pretty much the first prototype we launched back in December we have gotten a bunch of requests for being able to build a bed. And it’s a valid request. Sleeping and recharging your batteries is crucial to survive! And it’s all about surviving, right? Below you can see the more basic bed. It’s not super comfortable, but it serves it’s purpose.
When you’re getting a more sizable raft and you have some more supplies, you might want to upgrade to something that better suits a home. It’s a bit more expensive and takes up a bit more space, but it’s soft, oh so soft! The hammock!
Both of these beds functions quite similarly, with only some minor differences. The beds are used as a respawn point. If you were to die you will be able to come back to life in your bed through the magic of game logic! This is not their only purpose however. By sleeping in a bed your health will regenerate. But remember, as your sleeping, time will pass and you will get more hungry and thirsty, so make sure to keep some food and drinks nearby for breakfast. Since the hammock is a much more comfortable option than the basic bed, it will regenerate more health when sleeping in it and drain less thirst and hunger. Upon death, the hammock also revives you with more health, food and water in your system. For those of you who prefer the more hardcore feel of perma-death, do not worry! The ability to respawn will be optional when starting a new game! When disabled, the beds are only used to sleep and regenerate health.
We’ve previously shown you some new stuff to build, like the stairs, fences and new walls, and we’ve got more in that category. Another very requested feature is doors, and we’re happy to finally provide! Doors currently come in two versions, thatch and wood, to compliment your walls!
Oh, and we also updated the shark! It’s gotten a new model, new textures and new animations! Have a look!
That was all for this time! Tell us if you like what you see or if you think something is missing! Have a good weekend and we’ll talk in two weeks! Raft HQ out!
