Craftopia is an open-world creature collecting adventure from the creators of Palworld. You build an automated base of operations, collect creatures, explore islands and dungeons, and even fight fantastical monsters with swords and magical abilities. It's this eclectic mix of different play styles and the gleeful freedom to combine them in whatever way you can think of that makes it stand out.

NotesAccessibility Notes

You can remap the keyboard controls but not the mouse (left and right click). Controller inputs can also be rebound save for the sticks. You can adjust stick sensitivity and dead zones, but not thresholds.

There are different difficulty levels which affect the combat challenge. Noting else is affected by altering the setting. If you find a particular activity too demanding, you can do something else instead, so generally, holds, precise inputs, high-pressure activities, and rapid presses, can be avoided.

There is a lot of text in the game, especially in menus and tutorials, which can become overwhelming. Additionally, much of it is quite small and can be low in contrast as well.

By selecting the Move Camera Ahead setting, you can make the camera show you upcoming paths, aiding in navigation through new areas.

Tutorials: There are helpful tutorials and instructions on how to play. Information is provided in a timely manner, with appropriate level of detail.

Reaction-Time Not Critical: Individual game actions don’t need quick reactions, or there are settings to lower the requirement for quick reactions. This means you don't need to quickly press a button in response to an on-screen prompt, target a fast-moving target or skillfully complete a scenario against the clock.
