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.

- 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.


You can find a variety of screenshots (from new to ancient) on our IndieDB images page.

Crawle multiplayer (in a nutshell) Snow on trees Improved Winter
Blog RSS Feed 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!

I believe it's a permission error (the game can't register a dll file). Could you try following these instructions and let me know if it fixes it? Sleepystudios.com

Nice video ;]. I took a few suggestions such as dropping meat onto fire and I fixed a couple of things I noticed.
