Cube World Released And, Er, Unbuyable

Nearly every RPS writer has given Cube World a good fawning over, so it should come as no surprise that we all tangled our hivemind connect-o-cords in a rush to download the long-awaited paid alpha. But then, while we greedily bickered over who would get to go first while the others reattached Alec to the Sustenance Matrix, the worst possible thing happened: developer Wollay disabled Cube World's shop to fix problems stemming from the initial brick avalanche of downloads. So now all we can do is wait. And wail and gnash our teeth and I guess resuscitate Alec.

If you've already purchased Cube World, then good news (you jerk): you're priority number one. Wollay explained:

"We currently have problems with our shop and download system. Our main priority is currently to fix issues with all buyers so far and make sure they get their game."

"The shop will remain closed until all issues are resolved. We apologize for any trouble and thank you for your understanding."

Unfortunately, there's no estimate for when exactly that'll be. Hopefully very soon, as I don't really have another way to sate my lust for breathtaking hang-glide sightseeing tours and gigantic turtle dinosaur-thwacking. And sailing and digging and crafting and frogmen and basically everything else.

Speaking of, here's a video to tide everyone over for, um, about five minutes. That should be enough time, right?
