This seems to be the next in a line of voxel based cube building games. No mining or digging is planned, but building is still in, and it seems to be going farther in the direction of Terraria as being more of a game than a creativity toy. Discuss!

Here's a link to the developers blog. http://wollay.blogspot.com/

This is like a glorified 3D Dot Heroes.

This is not relevant to me but I love Voxels, just like Voxeltron, so I will scrutinize it very much to tend to the qualities.

Its sad how everything cube shaped is now attributed to Minecraft.

@Spooky: It's just because it was the trendsetter.

Back in the early days of gaming, anything first person that had a gun was attributed to Quake.

Most people who make cube-based games nowadays are influenced by Minecraft, though. Just like in this case. So, it's hardly unjustified.

Strangely enough, it seems that 3D Dot Game Heroes is not an influence on Cube World (at least, it's not mentioned), even though it reminds me a lot of it.

Anyway, it seems pretty interesting so far. But I fear that it will only be available on Steam but most indie games nowadays.

I remember FPS being originally known as "Doom clones" in the vernacular, but that's just me.

Anyways,this game certainly appears to be relative to my interests. Voxels have an inexplicable appeal to me.

Well, I wasn't around during that time, but stuff on this wiki always refers to "Quake clones," but whatevs.

Back in my day, we called them Wolfenstein 3D clones. Which itself is a dumbed-down Ultima Underworld!

Bump now that this thing is out. I managed to get my hands on it despite the store being frequently DDO Sed for whatever inane reason.

It's a fun little title and remarkably engaging despite the simple mechanics.

Extremely addictive, despite being only in the public alpha. I'm looking forward to whatever additions will come in the future.

I found a blank page for the game and added a bit to it.

Huh so it is out. Was wondering when that would happen. Pity about the DDOS though.

Bumping to get everyone's opinions on the game so far. I know the game is in alpha, but I feel like there's not enough to see and towns and dungeons are so far apart. Walking sucks!

No Opinion it is not very friendly with my on board graphics card despite it having a 1.6 gig. The Demo worked just fine but the game itself is causing some headaches. I can't switch it to Open GL because it is currently DX instead.

Well the site did say that the game would have trouble with on board graphics chips and it don't matter how many gigs it has if it can't perform.

See that was the odd thing. I ran the demo and it worked just fine. However the game itself had some issues. But I am sure given enough time that will change. It is still in alpha.

I can play but it is a tad bit clunky. Giving options to tweak settings and the like with wider range of options in the future will likely solve those issues.
