Wait, what? Cube World is coming out

Cube World’s development has been its own epic quest. The voxel-based Minecraftbut was first written about in the vellum back pages of RPS in 2011, by the ancient and wise Rossignol. It's a Zelda and Minecraft inspired RPG, where explorey quests are dropped into a procedurally generated blocky landscape. Since 2013 it has gone through some stuff. It was nearly published by Mojang, independently released,…

Worth The Wait? – Cube World Getting New Quests

Cube World still exists! It may have disappeared into the blocky ethers - silent beyond only the faintest whispers - but that's just kind of how (very small) developer Picroma rolls. Or tips over in an inefficient, angular fashion, as blocks are notoriously poor at rolling. So now here we are, finally, on the cusp of another update to the long-running alpha, and this one…

World Of Cubecraft: Rift Dev Introduces Minecraft-Like Trove

OK, upon second viewing, Rift and Defiance developer Trion's Trove looks more like Cube World than it does Minecraft. A lot like Cube World. Kind of eerily so. But I suppose it can't be avoided now that the MMO genre's been bitten by the voxel bug and-- actually, wait, yes it can. EverQuest Next is voxel-based too. Hmmmm. Oh well, enough making block mountains out of…

Good News! – Cube World Isn’t Dead

Alas, Cube World, we hardly knew ye. You sprang into our lives from Wollay's blocky womb an alpha with a big upside, but then you did probably the most unsettling thing an alpha's capable of: nothing. No growth. No evolution. No march ever onward to completion. After weathering a launch storm of server issues and DDoS attacks, the voxel adventure paradise suddenly ceased updates. The…

Cube World Woes Continue With DDoS Attacks

I don't think it's much of an exaggeration to say that everyone on this decidedly spherical planet wants Cube World. And given that we live in an era of limitless digital bounty, you'd think they'd all be able to zap it into their homes on glorious beams of cyberlightning in fairly short order. Day one, however, saw Cube World's store servers wobble and lurch under incredible…

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…

Vox Rox: Some Cube World Video To Make You Happy

I have a headache and I'm tired, so I should be a right misery guts. And I was, right up until I saw the cubic camels in the latest Cube World video. The block-based RPG gets more and more winning everytime I see it, so right now it's at peak winningness. What's new since the last time Adam glared into bright colours of the blocky…

Classified Information: Cube World

Every development update makes Cube World's differences from Minecraft more apparent, although it's not too far removed from what I imagined the adventure mode of Mojang's game might be - a block-based world of exploration, combat and questing. As if to prove that it's more RPG than survival sandbox, Cube World doesn't just have character classes, it has the most traditional set of character classes…

Cube World: Now With More Hang Gliders (And Cubes)

If, for some reason, all the world's game developers suddenly decided to drop whatever else they were doing, take up gleaming blades and blood-rusted cudgels, and engage in an orchestrally-scored melee brawl for the ages, I feel like the mighty Voxel Army would win based on sheer numbers alone. These days, there are zillions of the things, and of course, no one knows why. That…
