In BitCraft, you'll awaken as a mystical being in the midst of an untamed wilderness. While at first you'll struggle to survive, you can eventually work together with other players to build an entirely new civilization up out of the wilderness. As you construct buildings and explore new areas, the world of BitCraft will reveal a deep and ancient past. Yours is not the first civilization to build here. The ancient ruins, artifacts, and mysterious travelers you'll encounter hidden away across the landscape hint at a fading power and history ready to be rediscovered.

What engine does BitCraft use?

The BitCraft client is developed using the Unity game engine. For the server, we have developed a sophisticated distributed system called SpacetimeDB, which hosts the entirety of BitCraft’s server architecture. We feel that SpacetimeDB offers a stepchange reduction in the complexity of developing persistent world MMORPGs and we hope that it will open up an entirely new genre of indie developer massively multiplayer games.
