About Capsa


Capsa is an open world, social game which provides users with the opportunity to hang out in a breath-taking, and ever-expanding environment.

Featuring a large, gorgeous landscape, players can enjoy exploring Capsa's many destinations with all their friends. Developed using the most up-to-date technology, Capsa is designed to take full advantage of current hardware, providing an awesome, high-resolution experience. Unlike most virtual worlds Capsa is developed around the concept of a singular connected world, meaning no separate instances or loading screens to reach different locations and allowing you the ability to travel seamlessly to explore vast areas.

Introduction to Capsa's Underwater


In this article we want to talk about the recently added underwater content, as well as all water improvements in Capsa. Included is the ability to enter the water and swim, then dive down to Coral Reefs, Kelp Forests and various wreck locations to explore.

Swimming underwater in Capsa


We aimed for accessible mechanics, so after you simply run or jump into the water, and its deep enough you automatically transition into a swimming state, as you expect in most games. Diving down is a case of pressing either Crouch or Jump to control accent or decent.

We have 2 main biome-like areas added so far, which is Coral Reefs, and Kelp Forests. For the Coral areas we wanted dense amounts of colourful foliage and fish to bring the area to life. In all we included a few dozen species, which includes different species of sharks, turtles, eels, jellyfish and of course lots of tropical fish. The Kelp forests have the towering kelp that is quite dense in places that the player can wade through, these offer lots of underwater greenery and you can also find various fish swimming between the Kelp.

Our goal with the underwater content is to continue to expand and add more locations to explore, these could be shipwrecks, crashed aircraft, ruins, temples and various other thing. We’ll be looking at adding items for the player to find in these locations, and build gameplay around it later in development.

We worked to ensure all this underwater content which sits just off the shoreline of our existing areas is fully occluded when on land, so this means that other than improved effects in places, there is no real hit to performance from these dense coral reefs that would otherwise be visibly in range. The water we intentionally made foggy, so you can't see beyond around 250 meters, this lets us focus on rendering dense areas, without having to worry about rendering far areas on top which would really kill performance usually.

As part of the update we also introduced crashing waves on the shoreline, and generally improved the top content also, doing various performance optimizations to our previous implementation. Shown above is our ridable horses which we made swimmable as part of this update as-well. It can be a bit silly to watch, but fun to play around with, certainly improvement over the horse just sinking or, worse, riding along bottom of the ocean-floor like in our very early alpha builds. Our long term goals are to eventually to introduce boats and other surface craft for the player to drive or sail.

The game is releasing on the 23rd October :) We had originally planned to release on the Septemeber 21st, but due to unforseen delays (with translations and distribution) we were working on a week-by-week update basis until we had it resolved.

Interesting Idea.......Will there be censorship?

You’ll have to elaborate a bit on what you mean by censorship.

In Capsa you can host your own servers if you so wish, but you still have to abide by what’s accepted on say Steam Community or your Countries laws for example. From a point of mature content (I.e. Sex, Nudity) Capsa doesn’t feature that, it doesn’t ‘censor’ it, but it just isn’t really designed for that sort of thing and doesn’t feature it.

Hopefully this answers your question :)
