The mining sandbox adventure Core Keeper is now available on Steam Early Access. This release follows a successful showing during last month’s Steam Next Fest, where more than 130,000 players downloaded and played the demo. The Early Access version introduces new features, including automation, electricity, fishing, and railroads. Players can also expect new enemies, new items, new weapons, and even a new nature biome.

Those who downloaded and played the demo can continue their progress when they buy the Early Access version. There’s also an added motivation of the 10% discount offered during the first week of launch.
