Villages, Roads, Deserts, Pyramids

After a longer break (I had other stuff to do), here is an update:

- I added villages consisting of multiple houses which are inhabited by NPCs. By now there is only one house type but more will be coming soon.

- There are also roads leading you to interesting places. They automatically form underground passages through mountains and bridges over canyons.

- The player can now walk uphill without jumping.

- I'm adding new zones, the first one being deserts including pyramids and oases. I also want to add tombs and ruins which you can explore as well as new enemies like undead mummies. :D

- There will be a lot of other zones like jungle, snow landscapes etc.

Loving the houses.

hardband said...

Really nice. Out of curiosity is the game going to have a leveling up system of any kind and/or basic equipment upgrades or will the player remain the same strength throughout the game. Also would it be possible to create semi-randomly generated quests or would that be too much work?

Coookie said...

Great stuff, really. I didnt even know stuff like that was possible in a voxel engine.

Planning to sell it on steam? Thats great!

mfarr said...

farcodev said...

cool integration, it takes shape nicely :)

Oliver said...

Just a suggestion but.. how about.. Coral reefs and types of fish :3?

Gauphastus said...

Love the colors and.. everything. The general composition of it it all. It just looks appealing.

I just hope the gameplay holds up down the line. You surely have many challenges ahead of you and I wish you luck.

My buddies and I will be keeping an eye on you and your project.

wollay said...

Thanks for all your comments!

@hardband Yes you will get equipment upgrades and there will be dynamic quests.

@Anonymous I love the coral reefs and fishes idea. ;)

I'm currently optimizing a lot of stuff (engine, gameplay etc.) so I can't show anything new yet. But I'm trying to do my best and hope to make a new video soon.

does the character have a death animation? And I noticed that the troll battle seemed a little easy. I didn't see a health bar, so maybe you guys almost died, but you basically got in close and he stopped swinging. maybe a faster attack speed would help?

oliver said...

yea plz answer about the com above

Oliver. said...

Will there be bows,

wiimotechance said...

Oliver said...

I love everything about this game! this may just kill minecraft for me. The combat looks fun, and it is just so easy on the eyes. I downloaded steam just so i could have it when this game came out!

Anonymous said...

question about trolls, how come it can get rid of a bunch of blocks in one hit but not kill you in like 5? it sort of reminds me of creepers from minecraft how they blow up, but they do a lot more damage

Anontalkwarrior said...

I'm still saying we should be able to build stuff. It would totally kill minecraft, also add a few roguelike/survival elements.

Oliver said...

no no no it would not kill minecraft everybody would dis it and say its a clone.This is not a minecraft clone or even close. the only similarity is the he uses cube shapes this is a voxel minecraft is not. His cube are different sizes.this is not a diggy diggy hole game or won were you build so deal with it. Building and digging would ruin cube world.

Ow and i have a question will it be called cube world on release no offence but i think the title is a bit bland.

When can we play the game it looks like one of those games u play then get kinda bored of and then after a bit of not playing u get back on and do it over and over and over but i want to play it very VERY BAD!!!!! lol long comment

Anontalkwarrior said...

@Oliver
Oh you're one of those nitwits, you build a mud hut and then you declare yourself the victor.

Brute said...

Hello, this game looks amazing, better then minecraft. I have one question that will make or break my decision for buying if/when this game comes out. Can you build (Break blocks, place them) IF not....PLEASE make it so you can. It looks cool, but building games are my thing, and I won't be able to get into this game without being able to. I'm sure the ability to build would interest a lot more people into this game too. Sorry to sound so pushy/mean. But overall, great game, it looks very cool, i love the avatars.

Oliver said...

nitwit your self and all of u shut up a about making this i building game he all ready a said he was not going to add building aspects

Anonymous said...

looks cool i would defenitly buy

Duhduhduhuuuuu. Maybe a sort-of Skyrim/Oblivion/Morrowind? Because it already looks almost exactly like an alpha Oblivion.
