Join over 380K players in my massively multiplayer, open world action and voxel building game Angeldust—soon available natively for all Raspberry Pi models!

Right now I'm doing a free, open beta of the game for testing by Raspberry Pi users. No limitations, no DRM, no strings attached; you can keep playing it forever.

Download 'Angeldust v3.19 for Raspberry Pi (all models)' under 'Download demo'. It's the full version, entirely free on Itch.io:
https://metagaming.itch.io/angeldust

Angeldust for Raspberry Pi bundles Angeldust Creator Kit with lots of tinker tools:
  • NPC scripting
  • 3D game world mesh export to Blender, Maya, 3D Studio Max and others
  • Pixel-perfect world map export
  • Content creation tools

For additional support, I'm livestreaming weekly on YouTube and Twitch, so feel free to hop by so I can answer your questions and remarks interactively:

I'd appreciate your testing feedback here on the Raspberry Pi forums, on the Angeldust forums or via direct messages on both. I'll do my best to address replies as soon as possible! Have fun playing!

Gentle bump; thanks to everyone's feedback I've updated the starting post with more information on the game and Raspberry Pi-specific features like the bundled Angeldust Creator Kit for content creation and tinkering.

So far the beta version seems to be working perfectly for everyone, but additional feedback remains welcome! Also let me know if there's interest in another livestream today (on Sunday). Stay awesome everyone!

"over 380K players" might be a bit of an over-statement... but it's great to see this massive, single world game come to the pi platform. Thanks for the porting effort. There's a lot of "gaming firsts" technologies in AD; all done by a single developer (Frank "Firefly" Lucas). [granted, music and artwork were done by hired professionals] While the game is still currently paid on most platforms, open sourcing it has been on the road map since the beginning. I see this rpi port as an important step in that direction.

Thanks for the kind words Hummm!

I see people are having lots of fun with the Raspberry Pi version, so I'm keeping the beta open and free until further notice. Everyone's had a rather difficult and weird year so let's try to enjoy some quality time together with people from all over the globe.

Angleldust is a fantastic game for the Raspberry Pi, I've only used this on a Raspberry Pi 4.

We need more games for the Raspberry Pi, it is a capable bit of hardware that is greatly underestimated, If you enjoy building and discovery then please give this game a try.
