'Raft' Picked Up By Axolot Games - Screens & Trailer

Raft is a survival game in which players are thrown into an oceanic adventure and tasked with surviving a treacherous sea, either alone or with friends.

In Raft, players and their friends are thrown into an epic oceanic adventure and tasked with surviving a perilous sea! Gather debris to survive, expand your raft and be wary of the dangers of the ocean!

Trapped on a small piece of wood, with nothing but a hook made of old pieces of plastic, you wake up on the vast, blue ocean. You’re totally alone and there is no land as far as the eye can see. The water is calm and all you can hear is the faint sound of waves and a gentle breeze. With a dry throat and an empty stomach, survival will not be easy!

Oh, and be wary of the man-eating sharks!


“When we met Redbeet Interactive and heard what they wanted to do with Raft we were really impressed with their future vision for the game,” said Kacper Antonius, CEO of Axolot Games. “The love and dedication Redbeet have for Raft is really inspiring. Since we are both passionate about making survival games with building mechanics, we knew that we would be great partners.”

André Bengtsson, founder of Redbeet Interactive said: “The response to the Raft alpha has been simply incredible and so we knew we needed to find the right partner to help live up to those expectations. When Axolot Games reached out to us and offered to help, we knew that its experience could help shape Raft into the game we wanted it to be. It’s a great match for us and now we can focus entirely on turning Raft into an even more special experience.”

Key Features:

  • Multiplayer! Survive by yourself or with friends in online co-op!
  • Hook! Use your hook to catch debris floating by.
  • Craft! Build survival equipment, weapons, crop plots and more to help you stay alive!
  • Build! Expand your raft from a simple wreckage to a buoyant mansion.
  • Dive! Drop anchor and explore the depths for more resources.
  • Fight! Defend your raft from the dangers of the ocean.

The free alpha version of Raft has already been downloaded more than 5 million times from itch.io and become a huge hit among video and stream creators everywhere.

Raft will release on Steam Early Access in 2018.
