It’s a date! It is nearly time to embark on the Isles, with the official launch date being announced for 6th October 2022. You can read more about this in our Official press release.
With just a few months until launch, let’s take a look at what has been done so far.
As always, you can watch the dev vlog to learn more about this update.
For the best introduction to Untamed Isles, you need to check out our teaser trailer. It has tame encounters. It has snow. It even has a cute Guppy chasing a butterfly. You can watch the full video here. Support our project by liking the video and sharing it with your friends.

Some pretty intense development work was needed to make tames generate based on the world around them, but we are so excited to announce this has now been implemented.
Some tame mood types like getting caught in the rain, other mood types only appear at night. Some tame species love spending time in the depths of the swamp, while others prefer the calm of the meadows. While we don’t want to spoil too much for you, here are some of the factors that impact your wild tame encounter:
Biome: Tame species
Weather & time: Tame mood
Starting stat allocation, island sector & player level: Tame level
Long grass is now fully integrated with tame generation so tames will attack you while walking through the grass.
Curious about what biomes will be appearing in the Isles?
Map zones and a biome system have now been introduced and will be used for player progression. Here are some of the biomes in the Isles and why you might love them.
Meadow: A grassy and open area, perfect for tames to play. While a Guang may prefer the open skies in these areas, fluffy Burrl’s prefer areas with more shelter.
Beach: Who doesn’t love a beach day out? Grumpy Thoona, that’s who! Guppy naturally loves the beach.
Forest: Many tamers picture thick forestry when thinking of the Isles. Pluff’s in particular love to play in and around the dense trees. Pango prefers areas that are easier to dig through.
Mountain: Tamers who are wanting to get their step count up and venture through the mountains are sure to be rewarded. Feonii’s love the views from the mountain tops. Chemmy’s don’t like mountains as they prefer areas with more trees to swing from.
Swamp: “This is my swamp” says Skelt, our nature-loving tame. Brackis also loves to play in the depths of the overgrown swamp.
While every tame species can be found in every region, some are extremely likely to encounter, whereas others are extremely rare.
New features around the Isles
The Isles have been coming to life with even more magical features.
We have introduced a zoning system on Settlement Island for the player to progress through. This means trickier areas will only be unlocked after levelling, helping players only venture through areas in their current skillset.
We have also completed the 3D model of the researcher ship. This ship is steampunk-esque and we can’t wait for you to see it. The dock area has also been updated, you may have noticed a sneak peek on the teaser trailer. Missed it? Watch again closely.
