Some Time With: Cube World (Alpha)

Tired of our usual excursions in Torchlight II, or Minecraft, or wine, Lady Rossignol and I needed something of a fresh video-distraction for the weekend evenings. Having paid little attention to Cube World, but knowing enough about it to say that I was multiplayer, we decided to embark on the perilous path of the alpha. This is how we got on.

Cube World Dinosaur Takes A Promotional Beating

Just a couple of years ago saying "the graphics are a bit blocky" was a way to put down a game, but now it seems it might just as likely be an indication of indie-success. It's been almost a month since we last saw something from the cheerily blockular Cube World, but now it's back with a "Monsters" trailer. That clever title should give you…

Pecubular Combat: Cube World

Last time I looked at Cube World, Wollay had added adorable pet dogs which officially meant that anyone doubtful of the game's potential was probably called Norman 'Pessimist-Pants' Naysay. Sure enough, it's a popular name and people started to chunner about the combat looking too simplistic for their refined tastes. Behold, a new video that shows several different weapons and their functions, as well as…

Critters, Carnage, Cookies: Cube World

Cube World looks more interesting every time I see it and we're well past the point now where it's necessary to mention Minecraft in the first sentence of every post about the game. Of course, I've gone and done it anyway in a gesture of shooing impatience and that probably makes me part of the problem. The solution is the latest trailer, which shows the…

It’s Hip To Be Cube World

Since we first learned of Cube World's existence, the game's developer, Wollay, has been snapped up by Mojang, although it wasn't like a crocodile eating a zebra but rather a company hiring an employee. UPDATE: actually that didn't happen in the end, though apparently amicably. Anyway! Since then, development on the game has been continuing and there are plenty of new details and some screenshots…

Mojang Hire Cube World Developer

Another cuboid/voxel/block post! The blue birds of Twitter inform me that Mojang have hired Wollay, the chap working on Cube World. Notch claims that: "Our current plan is to plug his brain directly to a keyboard and sell whatever comes out." Quests and other RPG features perhaps? There's no word from Wollay himself yet (edit: he is 'so excited'!) but Notch assures that development on…

Not For Squares: Cube World Is Pretty

I've just come up with this amazing idea for a game! Ready? So, you have this procedurally generated world, entirely made of cubes. And you can hit them with tools, and build them. And there are mines. And crafting... Oh, but I'm being a cynical one. It's not as if Minecraft was the first to do it. And Cube World is doing something pretty different.…

Cube World Looks Chunky

The steely vigilance of Pixel Prospector has brought our attention to forthcoming voxel-RPG, Cube World. The creator of the game explains: "Cube World is (or will be) a 3D Voxel-Based game with a focus on exploration an RPG elements. The world is procedurally generated and features cave systems and basic procedural buildings." It's remarkable cute, as you can see in the footage below.Interestingly, it's only…
