Pixel People is rolling out a new update that will drastically shift the game into a more social experience by allowing you to visit other [real] people’s created worlds and sell or trade stuff to them. Also, the update adds more stuff for your own world or worlds, and you can now sync what you’ve built across the various platforms the game is available on. Below you’ll find a new trailer and the full update info.
