"Hey guys

We’ve got quite a big announcement to make today. After just over a year in Early Access on Steam we’ve finally pushed Staxel into full release!

Staxel has reached the point in development where we feel the vision we’ve been working towards has been realised. The farming system has been rounded off. We’ve added progression in terms of villager quests and equipment upgrading. The new characters that we’ve been working on for a while are finally complete and there’s a whole bunch of new features to surprise you while you’re out and about on the Island (including brand new islands to travel to!)

We, the Staxel team just need to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your support so far. We never would have made it this point without you, truly. You’ve all been fantastic!

Rest assured we will still be pushing updates for Staxel including fixes for any issues that show up, and (all things going well) we’d love to start working on some of the features that had to be put on the backburner. [...]" -- Badger
