Survival games sometimes require you to build things, but that can be a pain in the butt when you have to actually play the game. The Mr. Prepper Creative Mode Update neatly solves that problem, finally allowing you to build in peace.

Mr. Prepper is a game where things have gone a bit sideways in the world — the government is becoming steadily more oppressive and you can't do much about it. That leads to the ultimate conclusion of building an underground shelter to keep yourself safe and alive, all while avoiding the watchful eyes of government agents.

What's New in the Mr. Prepper Creative Mode Update?

Thus far, building out your shelter in the game meant actually playing through the game and dealing with whatever problems might come up. The Mr. Prepper Creative Mode Update neatly solves that problem by taking away most of the challenge if you'd like to focus on just building.

 
 

Creative Mode can be turned on by selecting it as an option when you start a new game. You'll have access to all of the game's items and an unlimited amount of these items, so you don't have to worry about running around scavenging for things — you can just vibe and build to your heart's content. (It also makes for a great way to test out builds for your regular playthrough.)

Unfortunately, you can't activate Creative Mode in your current game — you'll have to start a new game to do it. Naturally, you won't be able to earn any achievements, either — after all, there really isn't much challenge when you're an immortal with infinite items.

The Mr. Prepper Creative Mode is just the start! As today's announcement notes, the game's developer Rejected Games is working on adding more special game modes for the future. If you're curious about the game, you can try out its demo or buy it on Steam for $17.39 or your regional equivalent, a 13% discount that lasts until May 28, 2021.
