- An in-depth survival system based on hunger, thirst, sanity and energy.
- Dungeons that can be looted for gems, armour and weapons.
- Many difficulty options including an option to turn off the interface altogether.
- Health is based off your blood content and the damage to your body parts. You can also bleed out.
- Animals do not despawn, instead they can be skinned, picked up and taken to your house or just left to rot.

Crawle multiplayer (in a nutshell) Snow on trees Improved Winter
Blog RSS Feed Post news Report abuse Latest News: Crawle 1.0.0 released!

3 comments by Sekaru on Jun 24th, 2014

The big release patch is finally done. The most significant changes in this patch is the new seasons system, the ability to finally craft the Rusted Armour and all of the massive bug fixes for multiplayer (which finally allow you to do combat with animals).

The full changelog for this release is available here. It's a bit too long to post here unfortunately but the major highlights are below.

Major highlights

User Posted Image

A new seasons system has been added. This system will include all four seasons and will have season-specific effects on both your world and your character. In winter, the days are shorter, trees die faster and your temperature goes down a lot faster. During spring time there's an increased chance of rain meaning faster crop growth among other things. Throughout summer you'll experience longer days and your temperature will go up a lot faster. Finally during autumn trees will begin to die and pumpkins will begin to grow.

Another massive addition is the ability to finally put together the Rusted Armour and Rusted Blade. These were added in both 0.6.0 as rare chest drops. Now, you can craft them by dragging one of the required pieces onto an anvil. If you have the other pieces (the other two in the case of the blade and the other three in the case of the armour) then the item will be crafted.

But that's not all! There's loads of major bug fixes for multiplayer and singleplayer too (with a focus on multiplayer though). The result of these fixes are a much better multiplayer experience as well as the ability to finally do combat with animals and other NPCs.

Thanks for all the support throughout the development process. Crawle was our first commercial project and we feel like we've learned a lot about pretty much everything over the two years we've been working on it. We hope you all enjoy this release!

Yeah thats exactly why I uninstalled Avira. Way too overprotective. Just click Details and select the action "Always Ignore".

Trust me, it isn't. I know its the multiplayer doing it but I have no clue what part of it Avira thinks is "dangerous".

Avira showed TR/Dropper.Gen as the cause. I googled and its a trojan. Seems its in your .exe

If it's calling it a dropper, and you have the updater, it's most likely the updater, not the game itself.

Again, its saying that somehow the multiplayer is a virus. I've had Avira since 2009, I know perfectly well how overprotective it is.

Hmm, really calls to mind Elona. I'm sure developers hate it when you compare their game to others, but in my mind that's an honor as it's one of my favorite indie games of all time. Looks pretty great though! downloading now

Being compared to Elona is brilliant :]. Being compared to that game that shall not be mentioned but everyone is compared to is annoying for the most part.

I ended up looking back through the comments and also saw you mention Haven and Hearth. I spent several weeks of my life dedicated to that game, and have never really heard anyone else ever mention it, so that was a really good sign too. I played the current version and I'm excited to see where you go with it! good luck
