Axolot Games, creator of the popular Scrap Mechanic, today announced the next step in the company’s development with a deal to publish seafaring sensation Raft and investment in its developer Redbeet Interactive.

Raft is a unique and hugely popular survival game in which players are thrown into an epic oceanic adventure and tasked with surviving a treacherous sea, either alone or with friends. Trapped on a simple raft, players must gather debris, scavenge reefs and grow crops to survive and build their own floating home. Oh, and be wary of the man-eating sharks!

The free alpha version of Raft has already been downloaded more than 5 million times from itch.io and become a huge hit among video and stream creators everywhere. “When we met Redbeet Interactive and heard what they wanted to do with Raft we were really impressed with their future vision for the game,” said Kacper Antonius, CEO of Axolot Games. “The love and dedication Redbeet have for Raft is really inspiring. Since we are both passionate about making survival games with building mechanics, we knew that we would be great partners.”

André Bengtsson, founder of Redbeet Interactive said: “The response to the Raft alpha has been simply incredible and so we knew we needed to find the right partner to help live up to those expectations. When Axolot Games reached out to us and offered to help, we knew that its experience could help shape Raft into the game we wanted it to be. It’s a great match for us and now we can focus entirely on turning Raft into an even more special experience.”

Raft will release in 2018 on Steam Early Access. For more information visit www.raft-game.com

This is a truly unique looking game, and this author cannot wait to hear more about it. What do you all think?
