This is my old development blog for my project Cube World.
There is now an official site: picroma.com.
The game is still in development and not available for download. Be careful of fake downloads.
Looks great so far! Keep up the amazing work!
looking forward to seeing a new video :)the work you are doing is amazing
Oh Man Oh Man This game will be epic
ok heres the deal, i will not sleep untill you release a alpha/beta so please might start thinking about it?please :)
Looks great, but the NPC sounds like she has already been inside the cave before she gives the quest to the player (which would be very odd, since she could just have got the artifact herself). I think she should rather introduce herself as archeologist, who has found a treasure map or allusions to artifacts in that cave.
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
Awesome!! :DCan't wait to buy and play it :D
waaah zombies O_oawesome game man, keep it up. looking forward to the release
I will play this game all the time
You misspelled "Obsidian" :3 And I agree with Anonymous above me about the introduction to the quest.
Awesome! Can't wait for release! :)
It's looking fantastic! I honestly can't wait to buy this and play it with my friends.
Wollay what about official CubeWorld website? Blog is great and all but maybe something with forum ect so fans can give more feedback/suggestions
Hey Wollay, looking good so far!I'm curious, how will characters be saved? Are they persistent between worlds/servers like say Terraria?
*nods head in approval*
Looks great :)Maybe the Alpha next week ^^ ?
Ah thanks, I fixed it now. :)
why wouldn't she have taken the artifact if she has been there? and asking for the player to "analyse" just sounds weird, why not gather more info about it or something else
Yes, they're saved separately and can be transferred between worlds.
Do you have a final release date for a "pre-alpha" game ?
This look more and more amazing with every post you release >.<
Wollay there appears to be a problem with the grammar in the first screen. The text goes 'Yesterday, I explored a a strange cave'The problem here is there are two 'a's. :)Hope I helped.
Oh yeah, lots of typing errors today. :) Thanks, I just fixed it.
Wiedermal genial ^^Wie sieht es aus mit einem Währungssystem, also Geld ingame :D
Baue ich noch ein. :)
While we're at it then, there is also an error in the last screen. At the beginning it says 'Long time ago' where it should have said 'A long time ago'.Sorry for nitpicking. Other than that and Obsidian (which you've already fixed), it's perfect. :)Good luck on the game. It looks perfect.
Hey man, good job Wollay!!What do you think about making some cave interiors. Like stalagmites and dripping water, maybe in-cave lakes, mushrooms, etc.Love your work man! Keep it up
Your pouting stuff up so fast I can barley keep up
I cant seem to tell if the monsters in the caves are zombies or something else
Very good type of quest , the game will be unbelievable!!!
Dein Spiel sieht sehr interessant aus und wird definitiv weiterverfolgt :DHast du schon ungefähre system vorrausetzungen und auch schon eine ahnung ob du es frei verteilst oder es verkaufen willst?MFGPS: ich hoffe auf ein baldigen ersten release (am liebsten währe mir natürlich sofort) :D
It feels like you're posting a lot more content the last few days. Does that mean you've just been saving up content for the last few weeks or are you making Cube World your primary focus (as opposed to working for Mojang or elsewhere) and we can expect to see new content every few days.Regardless, I'm grateful for what you've shared so far and cannot wait to see where you take this project. Keep at it!
ich freu mich schon wien paniertes schnitzel auf das spiel ^^
In this quest, the artifact talk about a legendry obsidian blade, maybe it should start a chain quest to get this blade! :)
He decided not to work for Mojang.
I swear you're a coding machine >_>That's the only reason I can come up with for you being able to add content so fast.*sticks two thumbs up*
this game looks better and better with each update!any chance you could make a short video next time? so we can see the architecture and caves and whatever you might have up your sleeve in motion?
Hello and great work ! wollay i wanted to know if it will be possible to destroy blocks of the map ? because mobs like trolls can so...
Just converting cafeine to code?You're doing it right.
I like everything exept destructible environment for the following reasons:1. This is not minecraft, I have minecraft, I like minecraft, when I want to play minecraft I will play it.2. It adds an ugly permanent hole to the landscape.3. If you fall in the ugly hole you cant get out because you don't have enough climbing skill.4. This is still not minecraft.
I have a different idea of how exploration, the house, the minimap and enemy difficulty should be.1. You do not build or expand your house, it is already there and you spawn in it. You can fill your house with trophies, swag, and loot from your adventures.2. Instead of a minimap, in the top right corner you should have a compass that points towards your house and away from your house.3. The farther away you get from your house the more difficult and numerous the enemies will be.4. When you die your high score could be the distance from your house you went.
I get more excited every time something is posted!
1. And.. so?2. Well, ugliness is something subjective ;)3. You have all the climbing skills you'll never need. Read older posts to know about climbing4. What's your problem? o.O
Erm no?! dont destroy the freedom to build my own house.... all your ideas sounds like shit O.o
Xaphedo... indeed O.o
or the Monsters stopped her^^
i don't understant... so we are able to break blocks like minecraft or not ? i mean dont have blocks in the inventory but are we able to destroy blocks ?
Well indeed it is shit ^^, the only good idea is "the farther away, the stronger" which is already going to be implemented -_- so pointless comment ^^ such is this comment and if you are still reading you are lifeless :p just kidding but maybe i'am not kidding mwahhahaha sorry -_-
amazing! i'm really liking how the game is coming along. and you probably get masses of requests a day but if you ever need a alpha tester... =)
Amazing work Wollay, I wanna play it! >.<Hope you release any alpha/pre-release to us!
I noticed in the images that the amera was in front of the character, does the camera always change in perspective when entering caves and can you switch it to face behind your character?
Hmmm..... The FAQ was made about 1.5-1.8 months ago. That means the game shouls be released soon. Oh man, can't wait, my heads gonna explode.
One question wollay, what would be the system requirements to be able to run the game?
It would be great to see creatures assigned for the caves like bats, rats, or CREEPERS!!! lol jk
This game is really colorful which is what I think is really unique about this game.
I am not sure if this was changed or not but it would be great that when your in first person view that you shouldnt be able to see your character still.
Maybe you should add a class system, just dont take this as advise but an idea because I want you to design the game the way you want to.
you changed around your blog i like it
Spears would be cool to the game but theres arrows arent there?
I agree as she may have heard a rumor going around but may not wanted to get near the artifact, blahh idk
the new comment system is a bit confusing
no i dont think so
you could have read the beginning of the post that he was awear of the typos
hey, buddy. Wanna be a pal and give an update as to when you go alpha, also what's it going to cost to play alpha
Hey Wollay,is that Mummies?How about u try to implement Mummies to be spawned in desert caves (maybe Pyramids?)?
I already talked to wollay via email, he said a quad core 3.2 GHz processor with 4 GB DDR3 with a Radeon HD series will be enough to run it on the most demanding options
Your basically describing minecraft in a way, and besides this is an RPG not a "try to get as far away from home game"
Thank you, but what would be for the lowest settings? My computer isn't the best, even though I'll probably play on my bro's awesome comp but still.
The caves look good so far and I really love the artifacts.Later on, you should make the quests more different instead of just "Kill 5 Goblins.""Collect this and that." Legend of Zelda did a great job on that, although they were a bit repeatable with the Temples/Dungeons.
I was thinking the same thing...
I'm loving this game :)! You should do as minecraft and let people pre-purchase it in alpha mode and continue developing. Looking forward to buy it and play it!
Sehr cooles neues Webseitendesign. Endlich mehr breite für die Beiträge.Finde deine letzten Ideen, also Quests, Höhlen, Biome durch Temperaturen und Bauen echt genial.Du hast ja letztens nach Ideen für die Rohstoffbeschaffung gesucht. Mein Vorschlag wäre ein Händler bei dem man für eine Währung versch. Rohstoffe kaufen kann (variierende Rohstoffe je Baustiel/Gebäudeteil).Hoffe es kommt in absehbarer Zeit ne alpha oder beta. Hab echt Bock dein Game zu zocken. Trotzdem solltest du dir so viel Zeit nehmen wie du brauchst um aus deinem Game das beste herauszuholen.Viel Glück weiterhin,Ch3rryCoke
OBSIDIAN BLADE OMG WTFTHIS GAME IS F*CKIN´ COOL!
aaah what the fuuu! :D i hope its not implemented xD <.< you make me sick cause this feature sucks <.<
Cool new background !
WOLLAY! ICH WILL DAS SPIEL SPIELEN AHHHHHH ICH HALTE ES NICHT MEHR AUS O__O DAS WIRD SO EPISCH OMG JEDEN TAG LESE ICH DEINEN BLOG DU BIST SO LEGENDÄR!
Wow just found this project, it looks amazing! :)I just love your colors, they really pop out of the screen. Could you share any insights into your lighting model, etc?
I can't do anything before the game is released!!!!!!!!!!!!!I need an alpha version and need this Obisidian Blade ! xD
Stop teasing us and release a beta!=P
*.* best game ever !
Der epicness Radar zeigt 10/10 an :)
ahaa, deutsch sprichst du also? :)
this game will be the best rpg of all *--*
Why the negative comments guys?? Geeez... In my opinion, wollay did a great job in this.. I look at the screenshots and i really get the cave-y ambiance.. Hey wollay, is that a minimap right there in the upper right? What about making it into a sonar or radar like in caves.. Or initially, without the proper equipments or gears, the minimap wont work at all in caves.. That would be good...
I agree with both of you but I think this can be resolved pretty fast with just a slight change. ex. 'yesterday I explored some caves in tala plain. I found an artifact! but I got ambushed by a lot of zombies when I went near it.'This is basicly just a change in lore and storytelling.
This game is The Best!!!
I wrote that before he had edited it. You tool.
Makes me wonder if my pc can handle this.. Hahaha...
Hey blog, I came up with a good idea today let me know what you guys think.1. In skyrim or fable there is the whole system of if you kill people you are not liked or become evil. Well what if we brought that element into this game.2. Like quests where you have to preform assassinations on a traveler or villager, but that would make you un-liked by the village. Maybe to the point where the people in the village will not give you any quests or such. But on the other hand the quest giver would give you either a good sum of money or a powerful weapon. One assassination would not kick you out from the village and if you are a bad assassin and get caught you would have to pay a bounty.3. Now also you could do good deeds such as rescue a dog/child from a cave and you would be rewarded in honor. Doing good quests in general would make you earn honor.4. That brings me to another point. Adding an honer system in the game. Kind of like world of warcraft where you can earn honor for really good weapons, add an honor system that when you earn enough honor you will choose to receive a rare weapon. And there should be benchmarks as to how much honor you need to receive these weapons/armor/spells.5. Also I thought of creating groups of people. For example have like an assassins group called "The Forsaken" and they would be a group that lived in one main village but there could be other members in other villages that will introduce you to the group, and if you are already part of the group he would give you assassinations to carry out. Same thing for the good side, maybe create "Noble Heroes" who would have their own village/castle where their main base camp is.If you would like to comment, to make it easier on readers you could put the number of the paragraph you would like to comment on. And please, let's try to make this game as awesome as it can be! o)-<
will this game support mods ? this can be great with a huge community
will the game support mods ? because it could be great with huge community
I think this is a good quest but mabye some of the ''get this thing'' quest could start a follow up quest. Like the next quest could be something and the one after that to go and get the blade. Just an idea :P
Omg... When the game will be released ? I can't wait ;d
Wollay weißt du schon was die Artefakte bringen sollen? und ich wolte mal Fragen ws du dir noch so an Waffen vorgestellt hast. Ich würde mir wünschen das es richtige Speere/Lanzen/Hellebarden geben würde :D
I think that it is a great idea. You don't want the mobs to be weak all the time...
Also, ignore the image. I was just testing the +Image feature.
Just wanted to say that your project looks great, keep up the good work and you'll have a lot of people wanting to play it! =)
awesome.. i would love to explore caves and find zombies...ps: the new blog is awesome
this is awesome, i would love to explore a cave and find constructions, zombies, artefacts..ps: the new blog is awesomewhy the hell my name is not skully172 anymore?
this is awesome, i would love to explore a cave and find constructions, zombies, artefacts..ps: the new blog is awesome
when we will have a demonstration of the game?
Release The Game ! That's Awesome ! Do something like the Updates when the game will have new version
Basically expect it to be like Minecraft, there are no real specs yet on what is required run what.
In a twitter to me he said he runs it on a laptop with a Core I5 2430 dual core @2.4ghz, 6gb of ram, and a HD6750m graphics card. With the smooth recording in his video's I'm going to guess that the minimum is quite a bit lower than this.
Do you plan on adding something, like an item, that allows you to repair holes made by enemies? I'm not asking for the ability to place blocks like in Minecraft, I just would like to be able to go back and make the landscape look nice again after large battles. I don't want the monsters ability to make holes to be completely removed, because it could add a lot of variety to fights.
Don't add mods like on minecraft because it would ruin the point of quests.
Maybe I'll make the ground regenerate after some time.
Die Artefakte sind in Hoehlen und Dungeons versteckt und man muss sie fuer Quests finden. Ausserdem sind auf ihnen Gehemnisse ueber die Cube World eingraviert.
It's zombies, but I'll make mummies too for pyramids. ^^
Yep, there are arrows. Maybe I'll add spears in the future.
In first person mode you only see your hands and weapons.
Nice job man, you should add quests that require you to gather specific items from mobs or from objects that exist in that area.
I'll probably release a free tech demo (without real gameplay) soon, so people can test it on their PCs.
The camera angle is controlled with the mouse. It doesn't change automatically.
Das Spiel ist SO EPISCH!!!!
Erkläre uns bitte was es mit der Statue im ersten Bild vor sich hat? Ist es eine dieser Spawn Statuen von denen du erzählt hattest. Es wär wirklich gut wenn du ein skill System erstellst auf dem all deine ausführbahren Aktionen basieren. Eine ingame Währung wäre auch sehr nützlich! Und hast du eigentlich schon eine große Karte programmiert, auf der man all die Erkundeten Orte sehen kann, eingebaut?Du kannst wirklich stolz auf deine monatelange Arbeit sein!!
Can we have a weapon builder like a house builder? Maybe certain quests allow you to create your own weapons... You get some resources like "Dragon scale" and "Obsidian Chunks" and "Wooden Planks" and you can make a weapon from it? Like "Dragon Blade" "Obsidian Hilt" "Wooden Handle"...? Also, can you maybe add mining but mmorpg style? Were there are specific spots you can mine, not like minecraft where you just destroy everything...
Don't have mod support for cube world and don't let there be programs that let you edit your inventory or level or anything.Also, It would be awesome if you could place the artefact inside your home ^^Don't get lazy with cube world because it's a great game and I hope you will always make updates for it.
Wollay, ich kann nicht mehr warten.Kannst du uns bitte sagen wann du die Alpha releasen wirst?Ich finde das Spiel einfach nur genial =)
natürlich spricht er deutsch...er is deutscher ^^
I should like try your game. Thanks a lot!
Kannst du net sowas wie die Steam games machen?ich meine ,dass manchmal einfach das Spiel durch das Internet ein Update downloaded.Komm schon ich wette ALLE die das Spiel kennen können nicht mehr warten!
Hello Wollay,I don't know if someone asked you that before but,Did you compose the music by your own, by someone you know or is it royalty free music ? And will it be possible to dl the OST later ? would be great =DThanks,Scorbutics
Or maybe the sword was in the mouth of the cave and she was too scared to go in- because she's not an adventurer. So she gives you the quest to go to the belly of the cave and look for more clues. Bam, you find out what's going on.
un petit hors sujet désolé, mais, on pourras avoir des skin lol comme mario ou link
Looks great!But the caves are a bit...1 colored.You could add different types of stone/dirt/material, flowing water and maybe some cave-plants(mushrooms?) to color them up a bit.On a side note, for a cave the floor is ridiculously flat! :oAs mentioned by a anonymous user, the quest is a bit weird.Basically she's telling:'I found something shiny yesterday! go look at it!'So the quest goes like this?:NPC: Go look at shiny object!Player: uuuhhh...ok?*goes into cave*Gives every monster a blade to the chest*looks at shiny object*Achievement get! look at shiny object!*reports backNPC: how was it?Player: very shinyNPC Awesome! here's some xp!Player: CoolIn the last screen-shot it looks like you're picking it up, so do you retrieve it or leave it there?If she send you to retrieve it, why didn't she do it herself in the first place?If you retrieve it then it would be more logical if you put it in the light of:NPC is a archaeologist, knows artifact is there but cannot retrieve it because of blocked/obstructed/dangerous/filled with monsters cave.Or something like that. :PPersonally i don't own the game, so i might be missing some points completely, please excuse me if i do.
The caves are looking good!But they are a bit...boring.There is only 1 color in the walls and the floor is kinda...flat?Some obstructions, uneven floors or some things that you might need to bridge over would add to the atmosphere!You could add special items, cave-plants(mushrooms?), dripping/flowing water, different kinds of rock/dirt/material to the cave to give them some more color.As mentioned before by anonymous, the quest giver is basically telling you this:"I found something shiny! go look at it!"So the quest goes like this?:NPC: I found a cave yesterday with a shiny artifact inside! go look at it!Player: Eeehhh...ok? *walks in cave *gives monsters a blade to the chest *looks at shiny artifact *Achievement get! Look at shiny object! *reports backNPC: What did it look like?Player: Very shiny.NPC: AWESOME! here is some xp! Thanks!I don't know if you actually retrieve the artifact, i see the player pick it up in the last screen-shot, but why leave it there if you can take it with you?The NPC being a archaeologist, knowing there is a artifact but unable to retrieve it since the cave is filled with monsters/dangerous/obstructed would be more logical.She can reward you with whatever for helping her, in her quest of finding all artifacts leading to the obsidian blade.I don't know what your plans for the development of the quest towards the obsidian blade are, in the end it's up to you to decide.Personally, i don't own the game, so i might be missing some points completely, please forgive me if i do. :P
WAIT is this for PC,XBOX,PS3,WII,DS??????? or other?????
Good job so far
How do you prototype your characters? like do you sit in an external tool of some kind get their composition the way you like them and then programmatically add them into the game?
Wollay created his own voxel editor. Look here http://wollay.blogspot.com/2011/06/cube-world-voxel-editor_12.html
Wollay is there already some kind of currency system? If there is what is the potential name of said currency?
Not yet. I'll either add coins etc. or gems as currency.
Yeah, I made it and will probably release the soundtrack later.
I design each body part in my voxel editor. These models are loaded by the game and animated programatically.
Ja, man kann an der Statue seinen Spawn-Punkt setzen. Skills werde ich spaeter einbauen, Waehrung und Weltkarte sind auch geplant.
looks good can't wait to try the game when the beta comes out
Großartige Arbeit!The progress is really fast and amazing to see on this game. A reason to feature it in a recent blogpost concerning the most promising indie titles in development. :)
Wollay can you put your voxel editor for download?
Do these artifacts by any chance unlock the ability to obtain said 'obsidian blade' or other rare items?Anyway, those are some nice caves you got there, but how do you get out? Those walls seem more than vertical, is appears you would need to break some of the blocks to escape.Also, is it possible for the minimap to show an underground view when you're underground, so it's not 'uselessly' (You could use it as a reference, mabye) showing the surface while your down there.
You mean a blacksmith?
Everything looks so good! Like Double_DeluXe said, it's a bit boring but I'm sure it will get better. Keep it going!
oh man oh man oh man I wish I could play it asap x3
wollay great fan from norway here :D. this can be a bad idea. but can you make a adventurer's house: it is a house with many peoples that are adventurer like you. and they have special abilities, like good at bow, dual-wield, 2-hand and treasure finding something like that. and you can pay them to go with you or you can chat with them that they become to friends. and you can make the adventurer come with you for free.but in the adventurer's house, it is a woman/man behind the disk, that have heard some rumors in the town. and the woman/man say who she/he heard the rumors from. and when you get the quest. you go to the place she/he heard the rumor, and when you reach the position it is a woman/man that is standing there. and you ask she/he about the rumor, and then she/he tell you the story. and this quest is linked to more quest.you dont need to take this idea into the game. but it would be awsome if you did <3ps: the game is freaking awsome already :Dpss: im sorry if i wrote my english wrong. not so good :P
one more thing about the adventurer's in the adventurer's house. you can get quest from the adventurer. that also lead to be friends with them. ^^
i got the idea from skyrim and cube world :D
You can add horses to ride and go fast to house / npc village, etc :P (like zelda, you cant ride them into a cave)
I haven't seen anything about this subject yet, so I was wondering. Have you thought about NPC companions like on Secret of Mana or Dragon Age? They could even live at your house!
what's up here ? no news about alpha ?
yeah pretty much xD
PLEASE I WILL BEG TILL MY KNEECAPS BREAK OFF PLEASE A PRE ALPHA PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LPEASE PLEASSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE D:
I would love to see an alternative way to access these caves!
wow man.....this game looks amazing !! =D
Take My Money, Give Me The Game
Or Reaselse Pre-Beta
you should make underwater caves that you can swim through that lead to air pockets and other caves that you can explore. kinda like in the movie the sanctum!
Having your pet warn you of incoming danger would be amazing, even add an animation for it if possible
Pretty section of content. I just stumbled upon your web site and in accession capital to assert that I acquire actually enjoyed account your blog posts. Any way I will be subscribing to your augment and even I achievement you access consistently quickly.Sorel Women's Tofino CVS Boot
