Introducing Valecrest

A few days ago, Valecrest was a lively port city. You arrive to find a ruin, choked in glaciers. Citizens crowd around dying fires and look to you for help. Will you brave the frigid dockyards to find the source of the catastrophe, or will the ice claim you as well?

The frozen harbor offers no escape from the city.

Strawhart’s design team has been working hard since the last update to bring Valecrest to life! This world challenges the player’s ability to move vertically; they’ll need to be quick and creative to scale the city’s dizzying spires. Of course, they’ll have new magicks and puzzle pieces to aid them in the climb. We’ll have more to share on Valecrest and its puzzles in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out!


Deep snow drifts have left many streets impassable.

Dynamic Environments

January also saw us put a lot of work into Strawhart’s dynamic environment system. Zones will change in your absence, the sun will set if you linger in the woods for too long, and your actions will govern how your homestead develops.

Strawhart's Dynamic Environments!

Your Homestead is very different at night.

We hope you’ll enjoy the new perils and opportunities that these dynamic environments offer. Just remember to watch your step, whether you’re venturing to Valecrest for the first time, or returning home after a long adventure!

It's always nice to return to your room after a hard day's adventuring.
