Arcane Waters is an online pixel RPG, featuring trading, exploration, combat, and farming. On your own, or with friends, explore handcrafted sea and land maps, sail to visit remote towns to trade goods, hunt for treasure in dangerous waters and lands filled with monsters, or play against other pirates in PvP sea battles. In the meantime, tend your farm to grow crops, buy and upgrade your fleet of ships, and craft items to use or sell.

FIGHT

When you leave the safety of your farm, you'll have to fight to survive! On the high seas, fight tense real-time cannon-blasting battles against pirates and huge monsters. On land, take part in thrilling active-time fights with strange creatures to reveal hidden treasures. You’ll need your wits about you!

FARM

Starting with a humble farm, plant seeds, water them and pick your crops. Eventually you will unlock other farms to increase your yield and diversify your produce.

Explore

A vast open world awaits you or your team as you sail to distant lands. Explore multiple different biomes, each with their own unique towns, valuable goods for sale and dangerous monsters, to complete quests and help each other level up.

TRADE

Whether you grow your own food, or buy it from traders, you will need to find the best price to sell and make a profit. This will mean sailing far from home to discover new continents and towns where your goods are highly sought after.

CRAFT

Use items dropped by enemies or sold at stores to make your own weapons and armor, and either use them yourself or sell them on the public Auction for a profit!

LEVEL UP

Stay neutral to avoid being attacked by other players, or join a guild to help fight for your place in the world. Level up by completing quests, finding new locations, and utilizing your skills. Use Perk points to increase stats based on your chosen specialties, and use your hard-earned gold to buy new equipment to help you progress even faster.

As soon as the game is available you can jump in and create your pirate. If you already have a pirate from a playtest, they should be waiting for you when you log in.

This is a true Early Access, not a full game launch. During early access you can expect regular updates including new areas to explore, new adventures, new quests, new enemies, new items for your farms, and tons of items and gear.

Since the last playtest you’ll notice an entirely new region has opened up complete with quests, items, and new adventures. We’ve also added a lot of stuff for your farm and new game mechanics.

We have even more in store for you, so stay tuned for our full announcement. As we get closer to launch, we’ll post the full release notes here and on our steam page.

As an added bonus, those who purchase the game in November will receive a commemorative swashbuckling hat. This hat is reserved for all of our early adopters in thanks for all the support.

Get ready mates, Monday is going to be a wild ride!
