R41 – Colossal Castle


Greetings, Creators!

There are big updates, and then there are COLOSSAL updates. R41 tips the scales with our biggest-ever set of new blocks, our most massive blueprint yet, plus a hugely impactful gameplay balance pass. (And that’s not all…)

First, swing by the store to check out the new Colossal Castle Super Bundle, which sports TWENTY brand new medieval-themed premium recipes and a moat-load of bundled blocks! And you’ll definitely want those blocks if you decide to take on the epic Colossal Castle Blueprint – a towering 20k block construction of turrets, keeps, ramparts, portcullises, and even a cozy stable for Joffrey, your pet Hoglet.

There’s also major fine-tuning of gameplay that rebalances combat, crafting, bombs, and more (explosive spoiler: TNT just got a whole lot stronger). AND we’ve made substantial performance impropvements that’ll have the game running more solidly and smoothly than ever.

Grab some popcorn and settle in – colossal fun awaits!
