Kiss Ltd and JIW Games are pleased to announce that the eagerly awaited ‘Update 0.8’ for Rising World (Early Access) is available now!

Update 0.8 introduces the much anticipated ‘Dungeons’ and ‘Weather’ features. In addition, the update delivers a wide variety of new items including a gramophone which can play music and much, much more.

“This is a significant update that delivers multiple features that the Early Access community have been requesting for months’. commented Darry Still, CEO Kiss Ltd.

The Rising World Update 0.8 adds…


Includes underground generated structures, abandoned cabins in the woods and underwater ruins, with more dungeons to follow soon. For now, the player will be alone in the dungeons, but once enemies and all sorts of other nasty things have been added, expect them to become your worst nightmare!


This update introduces weather for the first time, including rain, snow, fog, thunder and more. Future updates will add additional weather effects such as sandstorms.

New Items

A selection of new in-game items have also been added. These include deer, boar and a polar bear, plus a number of inanimate objects, including a working gramophone (you can find some records for the gramophone in abandoned forest cabins).

Update 0.8 has also delivered multiple improvements ‘under the hood’ including greatly improved rendering and bug fixes.
