Zelda: Breath of the Wild meets *all the pieces*

I’m unsure how I managed to keep away from crossing paths with Craftopia till at present – an abundance of Steam Early Access video games and dangerous timing, I assume? – however one take a look at this trailer from June, and wow. I’m calling it: this is the most bewildering mixture of video game ideas and inspirations I’ve seen.

As Destructoid reader Roager put it earlier at present, “There is a LOT going on in this trailer.”

I wasn’t certain what to anticipate – the thumbnail and identify did not precisely fireplace up my creativeness past the normal survival-game fodder – however then I bought to the 20-second mark, through which foxes, deer, and elephants stroll on wheels en masse to generate energy. Then I noticed the protagonist spin their sword into a bunch of comically tall skeletons. Then I noticed her catch a giraffe, Pokémon model, and hoverboard with buddies.

That’s to say nothing of the player-crafted conveyor-belt machine shuffling cows right into a soup cauldron.

Will I play Craftopia whereas it is in Early Access, which is the place it has been since September 2020? No. I’m not satisfied I’ll get pleasure from enjoying this in the very best circumstances, not to mention in an unfinished state.

Will I proceed to be fascinated by its audacity and flip by means of community screenshots? Hell yeah.
