Early Access Postponed to 2020/07
Early Access postponed to July 2020
Please be informed that Craftopia early access has been postponed to July 2020, although it was scheduled for a 6/3 release.
We apologize to everyone who has been looking forward to this game, but we are still working hard to deliver best experience to you.

There are two major reasons for postponement.

1. Due to the coronavirus, we started working remotely in the middle of the process, which slowed down our development speed.

As you know, the impact of the coronavirus is unavoidable for our company in Tokyo, and the development progress has been slower than expected, mainly due to adjustments around the multiplayer network system. We decided to postpone it because we believe that we can improve the quality of the product by debugging it for 1 month.

2. Received more traffic than expected and need to have a closed alpha before early access.

In the our previous game, Overdungeon, we were able to develop the game in a very effective way by listening to the user's opinions during early access. We were hoping to improve Craftopia by asking for your opinions as soon as possible, but now, Craftopia is getting more traffic than we expected, and we think it would be better to ask for your opinion during the closed alpha test before we launch Early Access.

Due to the above two points, we have decided to postpone the Early Access start.
We apologize to everyone, but thank you for your patience. We will deliver the best craft game soon.

This kind of stuff happens all the time across the world and we completely understand the need of delays. Just remember, communication is key and thank you for taking the time to provide this information. Fortunately, July is just a month away so it's not a big delay.

Welp, that sucks

I hope it will be early July instead of late, but I understand if it takes a bit longer; even as early access, I prefer a somewhat polished product (considering the development stage it is at!)

When can we expect the "Closed Alpha Test" sometime this month? Hopefully close to the original planned early access release date.

I hope the entire team is fine and looking forward to play this game! It looks amazing!
The devs have no need to apologize. Take as much time as you require. I'd suggest changing the name though. Craftopia is the name of a Minecraft clone mobile game. I'd conduct a consensus for a new name from people then do a poll of the top names to be voted on.
