Make sure to keep up to date with all the development news and blogs here: Sleepystudios.com

Tutorial worlds and the large tutorials have been merged into a new Tips system. These Tips will appear based on several conditions (however a few basic ones will pop up at the start), you can choose whether or not to enable them with each new world.

Finally, we've made a ton of multiplayer improvements. Hopefully it should be a lot more stabler now and the additional functionality should be useful. As always you can report bugs here.

IMPORTANT!

This update introduces a new updater. After updating go to your Crawle folder and open "Patcher.exe". From then on you can play as normal (from a shortcut or whatever you usually launch Crawle from). The Patcher just needs to be "installed" first for future updates.

The server will also be need to be run as admin!
