Bricking it: LEGO Worlds leaves early access

Clip clack snap, LEGO Worlds [official site] is out. After almost two years in early access, the Minecraftbut with LEGO bricks has hit version 1.0 and officially launched. The big change in shifting from early access to full release seems to be adding quests and unlockable stuff, which is curious for a game that was a freeform sandbox for so long. Still, its LEGO Minecraftbut…

Stellar Overload Hits Steam Early Access

Cubical Drift's Stellar Overload [official site] looks a whole lot like Cube World or Minecraft, though it looks slightly better than either of those games, at least in the aesthetics department. Kickstarted under the name Planets3 in 2014, the game and its cubic planets finally arrived on Steam Early Access this week, so it's ripe for the trying.

Scrap Mechanic Creative Mode Out On Steam Today

Crafting games are as common as scrap, but I like the look of Scrap Mechanic [official site] more than most because it has tools to animate the contraptions you make in it with hinges, pumps and wheels. The latest trailer for the game's creative mode shows this off with buggies which unfold to release drones, AT-ATs that actually stomp and trucks that can be driven…

FortressCraft: Automated Minecraftbut Launched

FortressCraft Evolved [official site] is a Minecraftbut with large-scale industrial automisation, alien invaders, turret defenses and... wait, as Minecraftbuts go, that's a pretty impressive lineup of 'withs'. When I first saw FortressCraft on Xbox Live Indie Games years ago, it was Minecraft but with shiny water, but now... I'm quite surprised. After two years on Steam Early Access, FortressCraft Evolved [officially its name has an…

Action-RPG-y Minecraftbut Trove Launched

If you fancy a game that's like Minecraft but action-RPG-y, perhaps have a gander at Trove [official site]. After a stretch of open beta, Rift developers Trion Worlds released their own Minecraftbut this week. It's like Minecraft but more of an AMMORPG (as we agreed we should refer to MMO action-RPGs), with character classes, abilities, dungeons, loot, and so on. It's free to play, available…

Hidden Path Drop Early Access Game Windborne

The alphafunding/Early Access model has given us some of the biggest games around, but it's still a gamble - especially in bustling genres like the Minecraftbut. Hidden Path Entertainment, the Defense Grid and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive folks, took to Steam Early Access last February with Windborne [official site]. It was Minecraft but prettier, with quests and treasure and things to befriend. Now they've stopped development…

Minecraftbut LEGO: LEGO Worlds Hits Steam Early Access

"Minecraft but with LEGO" is an idea that must have been raised a hundred thousand times, everywhere from playgrounds to board rooms. It's finally happened. With remarkably little fanfare, Warner Bros. yesterday both announced and launched LEGO Worlds [official site]. Well, launched onto Steam Early Access. Made by the LEGO game folks at TT Games, it's a procedurally-generated open-world explore-o-build 'em up with terraforming and…

Space Engineers Devs Announce Medieval Engineers

While Space Engineers is still in Early Access, developers Keen Software House are looking for more engineering opportunities. Today they announced Medieval Engineers. Given that I used to cheekily describe Space Engineers as "a Minecraftbut in space," I don't know where this leaves me. Medieval engineers in their leather aprons will dig and landscape, of course, but it'll also have mechanical gadgets, and physics-based building…

Robotic Sandbox Build-o-survival: Scrap Mechanic

I shall, somewhere in the next two or three lines, write the words "multiplayer survival sandbox with building and crafting" and I don't want you to see those then skim the rest. Pay attention, okay? Scrap Mechanic will be a multiplayer survival sandbox with building and crafting but wait wait wait you can build vehicles and machines like rocketcars and buggies with impractical numbers of…

Yogventures Backup Plan TUG In Trouble

TUG appears to be, at a glance, another Minecraftbut -- it's Minecraft but not entirely squares and with some story bits. It is also, you might remember, the game that Minecrafty YouTubers Yogscast turned to after the crowdfunded Minecraftbut they officially endorsed, Yogventures, crashed after running out of money. Yogventures backers would get a TUG key and Yogscast would team up with the TUG team…

Minecraftbut With Connected Worlds: Oort Online

"It's like Minecraft but..." I always feel lazy and petulant saying this. Have we reached a point where we should come up with an actual name? We don't say "Doom clone" any more (or update it to "CoD clone"), do we? Seems to me this'll happen one of two ways: one Minecraftbut will be popular yet different enough for comparisons to seem strained, or Minecraftbuts…
