Exploration-based action-RPG Cube World alpha on sale now


4:30 PM on 07.04.2013



You can purchase Cube World, the voxel-based action-RPG, here, now that the game is in alpha [Note: the page has been alternatively available and unavailable all day due to server maintenance]. For the unitiatied, Cube World is an endless, procedurally generated game inspired by the likes of The Legend of Zelda -- it seems particularly Wind Waker-esque, what with the sailing and hang-gliding -- Monster Hunter, World of Warcraft, and, you guessed it, Minecraft.

The development team is made up of a husband and wife, Wolfram "Wollay" von Funck and Sarah "Pixxie" von Funck. Yes, I'm jealous of their surname, too. A year and a half ago, Wollay was hired by Minecraft-developer Mojang, then turned down the job because he "valued his independence," and we hadn't heard too much about Cube World until a couple of months ago, but now it's here for purchase. The alpha price will be cheaper than the beta price, which will be cheaper than the retail price, so get in early.

Cube World's website has an extensive description and feature list if the above trailer didn't sell you on its colors and whimsy. The game has eight playable races (male or female), various degrees of customization, monster taming, multiplayer, and a whole bunch more. Plus, it is almost literally infinite. You will never reach a border, so you can adventure forever, in whichever of the varying landscapes you prefer. Sounds like a blast.

[Thanks, Wedge!]

Scalable GUI, remappable controls next for Cube World

I'm not sure what Cube World is, exactly -- it seems like a lot of cool concepts rolled into a game that looks impossibly ambitious for the size of its development team (a husband and wife, in this case) -- but the open-world...more

Strafe is the goriest, most realistic shooter of 1996

I am tempted to just post the email we got about Strafe (stylized as STRAFE®), because it is a masterpiece of videogame marketing. With phrases like "not for the faint of heart" and "we understand if our game is too real...more

Ironically, the Kickstarter for Hollow Knight looks solid

I have had my eye on Hollow Knight for a few days, but had not yet pulled the trigger on highlighting it. It is a pretty 2D action game (though the color palette is a bit muted for my taste) starring some sort of insect-pers...more
