CardLife is an online multiplayer survival game set in a cardboard Science Fantasy world - think Dragons, Mechs, Magic, Lasers & Dinosaurs. Play by yourself or with others as you explore a fully editable hand crafted world.
Encounter and battle a host of fantastical creatures and craft your own creations using our unique Connect the Dots crafting system where you can draw customisable cardboard shapes that slot together to create new Tools, Building Prefabs, Weapons, Vehicles, Creature Companions and much much more.
We are currently in early pre-alpha development and would love for you to join us and help shape the future of CardLife.
Check out our limited edition Founder’s Edition where you can buy the game at a heavily discounted price and get some exclusive early bird benefits!

The time has come! Our survival game with an awesome and innovative crafting system is now available on Steam Early Access!
We started our journey over two years ago with a small core team and now we have expanded into a 25 person team - all focused on CardLife. Every single one of us has been humbled by the response from our Founders and now the time has come to open the game doors to everyone.
CardLife is out now and costs $19.99 / £15.49 / €16.79 from Steam or our official website. As part of our launch into Early Access, we have wiped all structures and progress on the official servers. Those who previously hosted multiplayer servers or played on single player will keep their structures and progress.
Additionally, all those who have access to CardLife can now transfer their ownership across to Steam by logging into the CardLife website and clicking"Download / Enter Key". More detailed instructions here.
In the past month we have been fixing bugs and improving the core game experience. We hope that you all continue to enjoy CardLife and be on this development journey with us. Your feedback matters as we take the next steps in improving the game and adding more features.
We're already seeing lots of amazingly creative characters on live and it's great to see servers so full!
There are also a few questions that have commonly come up in the community which we've like to address as well:
Yes, we will be working on translation very soon. Make sure to add the game to your wishlist as we’d create an update which will let you know when the game has been translated.
Yes! We are currently at a 20 person limit on our official dedicated servers. As we increase performance we plan to increase that number as soon as possible
Nope this option is entirely optional. If you want to continue playing with the launcher you can absolutely do that.
On our Steam page we have detailed the features we are currently working on which you can find here. This list isn't in any particular order and obviously, priorities could change as we address issues that come from the Steam launch, but this is our plan currently.
A massive thanks to everyone that has helped our cardboard survival game get this far. We've already gotten thousands of new players to join the CardLifecommunity and we're expecting many more associated with the Steam launch over the coming days.
Please give a warm welcome to all the new players and help them with the game as much as you can. Feel free to help populate the new CardLife Wiki with game information as well.
What happens when a world's resources are depleted? Or if entire mountains are destroyed? What about abandoned structures that are left half finished?...
