Bytebin today announced the launch of Deepworld, a massively-multiplayer online crafting adventure game, for Mac. The game will also be arriving on the App Store on November 15, 2012, for a complete cross-platform MMO experience.
Deepworld possesses treasures and lost technology hidden in the depths of a dilapidated, steampunk universe. Players find their way through hand-drawn mountains, caves, and ruins, or venture into cities built by friends. The raw environment is rich with resources and materials to be mined and then turned into hundreds of different items using the game's easy-to-use crafting system. Players can customize their worlds by placing items anywhere, and can recover lost pieces of technology to build machines and restore the land. Throughout their journey, players may also encounter monsters of the deep and can create weapons to annihilate them.
"Deepworld isn't merely a sandbox for mining and crafting," said Bytebin developers Mike Laurence and Jason Pearl. "It's a full MMO where you can build your world with friends and meet new ones. The seamless cross-platform access through the cloud means that you can play at home on your Mac and anywhere on the iPad, entering right back into the same place in the game."
While the Mac version is available as a full release, the iPad version is still in beta. Those with iPads can sign up for the platform's beta at: http://bit.ly/deepworldpad .
