Crawle is a sandbox dungeon crawler with a focus on realistic survival using mechanics such as hunger, thirst, diseases and wilderness survival such as creating your own tools, skinning animals for meat and fur and using the resources around you to stay alive. The game is currently in beta meaning that the game is very subject to change in the next few months before full release.

- Going without food or drink will cause you to die, diseases may also develop on your character from eating raw food or being around dead animals, increasing your death rate. They will also decrease certain stats.
- Dungeons can be found on the other side of holes. These dungeons will provide you with supplies and treasure. You can't stay for too long though, low sanity will kill you.
- Every mode besides easy mode has permadeath. However on the lower difficulty modes you have more chances.
- You can play blindly! Blind-mode gets rid of any informative pieces of GUI including health bars and item tool tips.
- 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.

Quivers New Temperature System Snow
Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: Crawle 0.9.0 released!

2 comments by Sekaru on Apr 5th, 2014

The main focus of 0.9.0 was two new features. The new temperature system along with the new Quivers system. There's also a few quality-of-life changes and fixes in this patch too.

 0.8.3 --> 0.9.0
 - New temperature system:
 - The maximum temperature is now 100 and the minimum is 0.
 - You can now only lose temperature at night or during rain/snow.
 - You can now gain temperature by standing near a fire.
 - You can no longer die of low/high temperature, instead you will black out at 0.
 - Low temperature will now continuously effect stats (energy, hunger and sanity).
 - Added a quiver (bear/rabbit fur + leather). Can be equipped as normal.
 - Equipping the quiver will allow you to store a maximum of 20 arrows.
 - Double-clicking arrows will now add them to your quiver.

 - The "Faded GUI" option now also applies to the blood content bar.
 - Increased the speed at which arrows move.
 - The charge bar will now instantly appear after holding down RMB.
 - The "Faded GUI" option will now be off by default.
 - Music and sound options will now go up/down in intervals of 5.

 - Fixed swimming in non-existant water.
 - Fixed an error with the merchant spawning in multiplayer.

 Major highlights

The new temperature system, as listed above, is designed to be more intuitive. The previous one had a lot of stages and a lot of consequences for low/high temperature - this one only has a few. Read the changelog above for all the new changes to the temperature system.

The Quiver system is a new way to organise your arrows. Previously, each arrow would take up one inventory space but with this new system, each quiver can hold a maximum of 20 arrows (you can only have one quiver equipped at any one time). If you have a quiver equipped, the arrows will automatically go into your quiver (if you have space).

I need some help. I bought the game and when I installed it and played it for the first time, it said version 0.5.1. DEMO. I tried to update using the patcher file, but it doesn't work, it keeps saying I have the most recent version.

Get rid any traces of the game by uninstalling it, doing a cleanup, etc and then reinstall the full game. It's probably because you already had the demo installed.

restore your PC to a point before you did ran the game installer
Find that DLL on the net download and place it in the correct folder.

ps - IE normally causes this error did you update that around the same time? if so re install it.

I really doubt that was Crawle's doing.

If you're willing to donate time to me so that I can completely rewrite the engine (because that'll be the only way to do it) then sure.
