Plus inventory for storing loot and checking hero/items stats.

The update is one of TheGameCreators ‘long term goals’ in its development plan for the game. Which was released on 17 March 2017 on Steam Early Access.

We are looking into porting MyWorld to Linux and hope to carry out this development once our current Early-Access release is completed.

How long will MyWorld be in Early Access?

“We’ll develop and refine the product for another 9 months or so before a final full release. The timing will be determined by the player feedback we receive as we work alongside our early adopting community.”

Dave Milton, Lead Developer on MyWorld, said today, “There are now 13 levels of difficulty from Evergreen to Demon Blight 5. Set from your inventory when inside the hub world. All 967 items can be found in each of the 13 levels. So we actually have just added 12,571 items. Plus, our 5 knights, including the infamous ‘Bucket Man’. Now having names and a great mix of abilities and strengths.”

So this latest news update to MyWorld brings big improvements. Yet follows the addition of combat two weeks ago and the ongoing addition of loads of gaming content.

Released on Steam Early Access. MyWorld has been described by users as “It’s like RPG maker, but with 3D graphics, better gameplay. And you don’t have to be a nuclear physicist to make a good story and game” and “An excellent framework for beginners, MyWorld is like Minecraft for game design”.

All while powered by arcane gems to upgrade your attacks. Yet powerful enough to bring down the ancient dragons threatening the world. Since attacks are based on the gem’s charge.
