From Melvor Idle

Alpha v0.04 (11th September 2019)

Note from Malcs - I call this the official release of Melvor Idle Alpha

It has been a long time since anything has happened with this game. But I'm back, and am ready to hit it full swing.

I have received many comments over the months with great feedback, and I really appreciate all of those comments. Thank you to everyone who did play this game, I hope I can make it into something special.

This major update introduces a complete redesign of Melvor Idle which will allow future development to be quicker and easier to implement. Everything has been redone from the ground-up including skills, bank, shop, and everything in between.

We are also own our very own domain! That's exciting!

New in this Update:


Cooking allows you to cook the resources you have gathered throughout Melvor. As of release, you are able to cook all the fish that you catch. But be careful! You may burn a few here and there.


Travel across the great lands of Melvor to mine precious materials that are essential to survival. Level up Mining to unlock extra areas that contain rarer ores. Level up your areas to unlock more resources to mine.


Transform those precious ores into refined bars, which allows you to create powerful gear to survive the harsh lands of Melvor. There is currently no use for the items that are smithed as of this update. But very very soon, there will be ;)
