We're hard at work getting the server ready to exit beta next Friday, June 16th. We're very excited to make the transition and finally "rebalance" the server. We hope you're all excited as well!

We are holding off content updates for this week for next Friday, to allow us to focus on making sure this transition goes as smoothly as possible.

Don't know what I'm talking about?
Here's what to expect as we enter next week:

Monday, June 12th
  • We will be announcing the details of what blocks are not brought with you on an island import. We are still working out the logistics of this, so I don't want to hint at anything here just yet.

Thursday, June 15th
  • Savage Games will go offline Thursday afternoon. This will allow us to make changes to the servers and worlds as necessary without impacting gameplay.
  • All current worlds will be dubbed "The Beta Islands", and will remain playable via an NPC in the spawns of the new servers. Nothing will be lost.
  • The shop will be going offline as we specify the details of kits and ikits in the new islands. The contents of these kits will not change in the beta islands.
Friday, June 16th
  • Savage Games will come back online, out of beta.
  • There will be a beta version of every current island, with all your stuff as you left it.
  • There will be two new islands: Steampunk & Dinosaurs (No beta versions of these, of course.)
  • There will be an updated warzone on the new version of all...

Due to issues with our host starting at 5 AM this morning, our Skybounds servers lost their connectivity to our primary database.

This caused worlds to be unable to start up following their automatic reboot.

This has since been resolved, we're sorry about the downtime! We'll be speaking with our host to ensure it doesn't happen again in the future.



We're now running a 15% off flash sale for 24 hours over on our shop to help compensate for the downtime. Once again, we're sorry!

Hey Skyboundians... I won't use that term again, no need to panic - save it for the reset >:]

Wanted to write up a quick post to give a specific break down of what you "keep" and what you "lose" on the reset of Skybounds on June 16th when the BETA ends. This should help clear the air and put an end to rumors and confusion.

Old/BETA/Classic Islands (Name TBD):
  • You keep everything. Nothing changes here, ever. There will only be bug fixes when necessary, don't expect to see new content. Why? It's crazily imbalanced as there have been no major changes to economy, items, enchants etc. since Skybounds started. Taking things out of BETA and doing this reset offers an opportunity to fix things.
  • Kits, iKits, Items, Stars/money, Islands, Prestige and Levels, Warzone, Obtainable Loot - you keep it all!
  • If you want to keep playing on the Old version of Skybounds you're welcome to do so. Everyone will be able to access these islands - including non-ranked players. The player count of these is going to start at a cap of 100, yes, to keep a tighter budget and not go too crazy on acquiring more server space. That said if there is a serious demand for the old worlds to allow for more players that number will quickly increase. Yes, we do want to encourage all players old and new, noobs and pros, to use the new islands as that's where all of our work, blood, sweat and tears will be focused. And in our opinion it will be much better. In an ideal world the old/beta islands will eventually act as a place of nostalgia for players who've been around from the beginning of Skybounds.

New Islands:
What you keep --
  • Any unlocked kits, ikits, titles and ranks will remain unlocked - anything permission based
  • Prestige
What you lose --
  • All Items
  • Islands
  • Stars/money
  • Current Player Level resets back to level 1 of current Prestige...
