New Cube World Screenshots

Over the last weeks I've experimented a lot with quests: completely random quests, semi-random quests, pre-written class quests. But I somehow had the feeling that the addition of quests could remove a lot of the freedom and restrict the player too much. I'm also afraid that they could become too repetitive and generic over time. So I decided to leave them out for now and put the game focus on exploration, fighting and character progress, which are in my opinion the most fun aspects of Cube World. Here is an overview of the new features:

- There is now a clearly arranged overview map showing lands and levels. The player can switch between the voxel map and the overview map.

- I've added screens for character selection, world selection, character creation and world generation

- Each class has access to three different types of weapons
* Warrior: Great weapons, dual-wielded one-handed weapons, shield + one-handed weapons
* Rogue: Daggers, fist weapons, longswords
* Spirit Mage: Staffs, wands, bracelets
* Ranger: Bows, crossbows, boomerangs

- There are now groups of NPC adventurers wandering through the landscapes and fighting monsters, just like the player. Some of them are bad and will attack the player.

- Cities have now different districts and there are class trainers


This is the character selection screen. The number of character slots is not limited.

Here is the character creation screen. The background is different with each new game.


This is the world selection screen. Each character can enter each world.


Here is my character in-game. It's a ranger, specialized at sniper. In the final game, specializations won't be available from the beginning. Also abilities will be unlocked one after another which each level.
As a sniper I can lay down and become stealthy. The view gets zoomed in, too. With this ability I can perform powerful stealth attacks, similar to a rogue. However the effect ends when I move.



Alpaca!


This is the world overview map, showing the different lands. The blue lands are oceans, green lands are of my level, and red lands are higher level. Lower level lands would be gray.


Here's a group of nice NPC wizards.


Hey, there's Pixxie. :D


Let's go to that castle.


We must be careful not to pull all enemy groups at once.


I just found a crafting formula. I can learn it and craft that amulet whenever I have the right materials.



Here we nearly wiped because we got attacked by multiple groups at once.


This is the boss. 3.. 2.. 1..


Fire!


See that Pixxie clone in the background? The boss has summoned it. Each boss has random special abilities like this.



Even enemies can drink. :)


Yes, we made it!


We have leveled up, so let's travel to one of those LVL 2 lands.



Let's defeat that cyclops before.


Cyclopses fight with hands and feet now, and have new special abilites like this charge attack. He can also do a cyclone attack. Trolls still use big maces and have an earthquake attack.



We've reached the frontier to the LVL 2 land. It's a snow land!



Let's see if the vendors have better equipment.





Some mountains can cet really high.


Here's a desert land.







This is the ranger master. Here I can learn new abilies and practice them with aims.



Some exploration pictures...









Here's a group of evil Lizardmen.


The frontier between two lands.


A group of Orc adventurers.



A rare ogre. Rare creatures drop a spirit when you defeat them.







These orcs are camping over there. Fortunately they can't see me.



I just got a boomerang!


The boomerang follows the movement of the crosshair.




It hits enemies multiple times. It's my favorite ranger weapon. I'm planning to add throwable metal disks, too.

Wollay's latest posts on Twitter were on April 17th.

AustinMclEctro said...

"12 year olds."

Jérémy Vasseur said...

Ho god, how many years it will take ? 3 more for that ? seriously please, you starting to loose many fans. End this i bit faster please, even if i have to pay 20€/$ or do a beta i dunno, or more news about the progress of the game.

GUEST said...

How big are each maps gonna be?

shit said...

wollay abbandoned the project,i'm sorry guys

Zeb McNeil said...

Don't start spreading lies.

Zeb McNeil said...

Wollay has said each map will be infinite.

Recnar Reynard said...

Here, here!

Oskar Emil Jacobsen said...

and best of all i'd be able to buy it twice! :-P :-D

Oskar Emil Jacobsen said...

what's up with all your "accounts" on this blog?! :-O

Lloma said...

Wollay. Release your game. It has been in development for a while now. I like many others are losing interest because all you have to show are a few damn screenshots every few months. If you release this game soon it will be very successful I believe steam will help you using green light and you will benefit greatly from it. I may be being impatient but i'm fed up coming here and seeing the same post every time.

Drew Prochniak said...

What's happened with the development so far? It's been a few months since this last post, and i'm interested in what direction it's taken.

Mohammed Goder said...

You should release this before the Minecraft 1.6 update comes out, because you would attract more people from the Minecraft community, because Minecraft is getting quite boring.

lloma said...

The minecraft community is almost entirely of pre-pubescant children. I for one do NOT want that kind of community for cube world.

RedDire said...

No one is asking for a release.
People are asking for a damn update.


For all we know, we could be hyping over a cancelled project.

RedDire said...

Also, do you even know how long this game has been "under development"?

Jordan said...

I want to buy this game. This product looks great. Buy now!!!!!!!!!! Would be sick if there was servers with hundreds of explorers (players) walking around fighting for the best items or teaming up to kill the bosses. Ahhh want this game so badly. Confused why people want to wait another 2 years for you to take your time. The child inside me makes me impatient for this game.

Jordan said...

Not to mention hundreds of players gliding around. :OOOOOO!!!

Angel watson said...

Trolls in this game? Nah, is so amazing to have trolls.
Updates! Ah, love updates. \o/
Hi there, this weekend is fastidious in favor of me, as this point in time

Evening
Clutch Purses

Zeb McNeil said...

Nobody wants to wait for this game. Just some of us understand that making a quality game takes time, especially when you are doing most of the work by yourself.

kevinkat2 said...

It should really be illegal posting awesome screenshots like these without a beta or alpha ._.

Ultimate Fudgecake Man said...

Hey Wollay, you know that minecraft was released in an early stage of development and it looks like you making basically everything perfect before you release it so why don't you do what minecraft dose and just update the game instead of making the have everything first?

Kevron said...

An update would be nice...

gawd dayum said...

Im really starting to lose interest in this game... Just fucking release it god dammit, people will forget about it if you take too long

Ultimate Fudgecake Man said...

Wollay PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE release cube world (or whatever you are calling it)!!!

Ultimate Fudgecake Man said...

BTW I think that cube world is a good name for the game

Ryan Schoultz said...

The Best things in life is worth the wait. and well This is Defiantly worth it. I've been following this since the First post and yeah i am ampted for it, But i don't want him to rush and disappoint us.

M-Trek said...

I was looking for some new games to play and I stumbled across some screenshots and videos of this game and it looks really cool!!! Also, I read some comments and they were referring to the developer(s) as he and you. DID ONE SINGLE PERSON MAKE THIS GAME?!?!?!? If so, I am very impressed, well done.

Victor Mayevski said...

Why should he release it for people like you.

NecroM said...

Can't wait for your game to come out!
Waiting for you to throw up a price!

phantomtherogue said...

Man, why Cube World dont have a alpha? and yeah, for me Cube World is ready for a alpha...

Zeb McNeil said...

This game probably isn't in an alpha state any more. It is in beta. That aside Wollay isn't going to release the game until it is ready, that's why there isn't an unfinished version available to the public.

Double said...

Just a few game recommendations: Add some sort of creature ride on like a horse etc. Add stuff like hook shots armor, watches and other gadgets that can be useful. Also add clothing like hats shirts pants to make your player look cool. I just thought that those could be things to add to make the game funner, give it a try :)

Oskar Emil Jacobsen said...

he is releasing a demo quite soon and he will keep updating as he releases the game :)

Oskar Emil Jacobsen said...

just a few corrections: there already is mounts (horses, huge beetles etc.) there's already clothing and last but not least it's funnier XD

Sz. S. said...

I don't know how hard it is but I think making the game not limiting weapon usage would be awesome or if you don't want to do that that's cool as well it is just wierd imo that a open world sandbox(ish) game limits weapons

Ultimate Fudgecake Man said...

think of minecraft, it's a sandbox game and it has limited wepons

Amet Jadir DeCrypt said...

i think he means learn from the failures, and don't do them

Michael Black said...

Man you really need to get this on KickStarter! Or just send me a playable copy and I'll send you $30. Either way. :)

Michael Black said...

Screw Steam. If this game has any DRM it will simply be cracked and reposted on UseNet.

Michael Black said...

Diablo 3 was a complete disaster. Blizzard is done.

me said...

beter hury releasing it or it wil be talk that this is a clone game of this one

http://www.examiner.com/article/stonehearth-kickstarter-launches-for-minecraft-like-rpg-and-rts-game

Someone said...

That's not a clone... not even close... and don't make me have to explain why it isn't.

Ultimate Fudgecake Man said...

How is it NOT a clone of Cube World, it looks so similar!!!

Ultimate Fudgecake Man said...

PLEASE (!!!!!) release the game already!!!!!!!!

Zeb McNeil said...

They may both be voxel based games, but one is a real time strategy game, and the other is an exploration based RPG.

corin.rodger said...

New tweets from woolay: https://twitter.com/wol_lay

Someone said...

How many times must I say that AESTHETICS DO NOT MAKE THE GAME! If that's the case, then by your definition, Cube World is (now stated to the point of clicheness) Minecraft clone.

something something said...

hey wollay it has bin like 4 months since you last posted something. Are you still alive?

Oskar Emil Jacobsen said...

dude, he posted 2 days ago on twitter -.-

Randy Phillips said...

Been a while. Any new updates at all?

Squwidgey said...

Wollay is still looking for a name isnt he? It seems like everyone has forgotten...
I havent...

Squwidgey said...

Sadly... Minecraft got boring after beta 1.8..... I miss 1.7.... Oh well! Ive ditched minecraft for cubeworld now!

Kei Simmons said...

he will probably get more money if he puts it on steam because right now their are about 50,000 people that are interested in cube world and their are millions of steam users so people on steam will see this game and will most likely get it because its awesome so i think he should put it on steam

Zeb McNeil said...

He said somewhere that he wanted to try and keep the name Cube World.

phlofy said...

Wollay can we please have an alpha 0.0.1 or something?
I'm just dying to play this game, and from the videos you've made,
it looks like it's in playable condition. I'm not asking you to
rush the final product; all I'm asking for here is an alpha so we can
get the feel of the game. It just looks so awesome.

Reeper said...

I have actually gotten to the point where this game is a backburner check up for me.. been watching it since it started almost, and im totally okay with just checking in every few weeks and seeing how its going.. odds are ill lose interest all together and then be surprised when it pops up out of the blue as ready to go

Ultimate Fudgecake Man said...

Wollay said that he MIGHT be picking a different name, MIGHT.

Amanda Gill said...

I really don't want you to rush, because a truly fantastic game is meant to take as much as it needs to. But one question. Can you estimate what year it'll be released in?

Squwidgey said...

Yea I think I remember that

Squwidgey said...

Im still thinking of names my self

The_Skylord said...

A lot of people here either want you to release now, or wait 2-3 years. First off to the people who want a release 2-3 years. Doing so would greatly reduce the interest of the game for a lot of his fans, (You can only tease a baby with candy for so long before he/she cries lol aka losing interest in the game / forgetting about it) This game was first introduced to the public with pictures and info about the game sometime around 2011? That's what i was told anyways. Since then it's been 2 years Also consider the fact that you (Wollay) said something about a alpha/beta in the first quarter, that might have just be some gossip of some sort but anyways, If you did release the game now as say a beta, you could patch the game with any new features keeping the game fresh, and always packed full of new features :) (I promised myself i would not do this but yes, Like minecraft has xP ) That being said i really don't see what else there is to say :) You, not wanting to release too early because either you don't think it's done, it's Not done, or people pestering you about a release, It all fits! :D ~Cheers Skylord

The_Skylord said...

Btw Good to see you're still active on Twitter ;) Most indie devs keep hush hush on pretty much everything untill it's done.

TotalCookie said...

The game is dead

Toni Marco said...

Any news?? :(

Zeb McNeil said...

I haven't seen anyone saying they want to wait for this game, just people who are willing to wait. I'm sure everyone here would say that they would love to have the game right now, but some of us understand that making a game by yourself is not easy and are willing to wait until Wollay decides the game is ready for the public.

Wituz said...

At least post some more updates, dosen't matter if it's that you aren't motivated ATM, just to show that the project still is alive. I don't want this to be wasted!

The_Skylord said...

It won't but remember he has a life outside of making this amazing game :P He has a wife that he no doubt wants to spend time with. It's easy to get sucked in and forget about real things when you're on the computer lol.

The_Skylord said...

There will be an update any day now just be be patient. It will pay off in the end :)

biggaymax said...

He said on his channel stupid faggots,cube world as been abondoned fuk damn,stupid wollaty

Kale said...

Will this game be offline singleplayer as well? I do not have internet in my dorm but i would really enjoy this game.

Zeb McNeil said...

Yes.

Oskar Emil Jacobsen said...

a demo will be released in the near future :D

Oskar Emil Jacobsen said...

he is working on the game full-time now and he is constantly posting new small updates on twitter ;)

Kale said...

Alright thanks!

Ultimate Fudgecake Man said...

i think you should hurry up and release the game other wise everyone will lose interest

kornflakes said...

Hey Woolay.
This is the first time I saw this game, and I'm already in passion with it!

It's a great piece of work you have done so far, and I really want you to be successful with it and earn the billions of dollars you deserve (and even go on with making games, make a small company, and I have some idea of a type of game you can make next, if you're interested).

Anyway, can you share some info about it? Like, do you have an ETA when the game is done, or if you will put it on steam? You have some type of pre purcharse? Is it on kickstarter?


Hugs from Brazil. We love you.
Also, bananas. And beer.

kornflakes said...

Ok, I found the FAQ section and some of the questions were already answered there.


Can't wait to play your game. :)

Eurydemus said...

Notch has been tweeting about it. I'm sure the @Notch army can lend a hand to his fellow indie developer.

The_Skylord said...

Haha indeed.

The_Skylord said...

I know it sound's silly but yes actually ive seen a few people around here saying things like "Guys let him build i would want a good game later than a quickly released game now" Things like that, Also he's working with his wife, now some people say she dosint do anything, completly bs! She as im told is doing art and such... That is extremely vital to a games look and feel. I'm not saying everyone is not willing to wait, (we are all waiting arent we?) lol anyways good day.

The_Skylord said...

(Example the commect below this one by Amanda Gill) Again nothing wrong with waiting a LONG time for release / average wait time. But there other ways as i said before such as patches.

The_Skylord said...

Same here m8! Keep up the great work, You are very gifted in this sort of thing :)

Paulo André Santos said...

This game reminds me so much of a cube-version of Dragon Warrior VII. It's just absolutely awesome, the biomes, the combat... When it comes out, I'll be gliding around all day long.

The_Skylord said...

You and me both chief.

Felix Hasal said...

What would be cool is if when you picked an Item up, you didn't really know what it was until you start looking at it or take it to a specialist.

Matthew French said...

Or better still just have it so staves are incompatible with metal armour. Job done.

Ralo said...

Would be neat if villagers gave hints about points of interest around villages or kingdoms. Like about monster activity or dungeons.

The_Skylord said...

He want's to go solo on his project (besides his wife helping here and there) He declined working with Notch before. I doubt Notch would want to considering his reaction to Wallays decline on his offer.

The_Skylord said...

It will give Cube World a bad rep. Greenlight used to be good, now if he put it in greenlight it would just be a gem amongst the trash.. no no Cube world needs to be sold on it's own.

The_Skylord said...

Agreed. Greenlight is just a place where ANYONE can make a random horrible game and try sell it. Cube world would be a Gem amongst the garbage of greenlight. Maybe when it was first introduced to steam.. but now cube world needs to be sold on it's own.

The_Skylord said...

I think its time to release in some way.

Codo said...

Hm... By great weapons... I want to know. Will spears or lances be in this game? I mean, I love all the other weapon types in here, but honestly? I would be happy with just a retextured sword weapon for a spear or lance... Too many games never seem to include spears, when they are a staple weapon of both 'middle-earth' style places, or simply would just fit in. I mean, heck.

Retexture a sword to work like an axe: Increase damage, make attack speed slower.
Spear: Retextured great sword or something, make it's speed slower, it's reach longer, and it's attack about the same, or possibly lower.

You wouldn't have to make all new weapon categories, but you could fit various other sub-type weapons into the game, without ever having to MAKE them anything more than just retextured weapons... So longa s the attacks KIND of fit, it should be groovy.

epixpivotmaster said...

MAN, YOU REALLY SHOULD MAKE A KICKSTARTER FOR YOUR GAME!
http://www.kickstarter.com/
You could recive tons of donations that would help you, if you want. I'd donate :D
Keep up the awesome work!

epixpivotmaster said...

What you prefer, a perfect masterpiece made in 3 or 4 years, or a middle-quality game made in 1 or 2 years?
I'd happily take the former, and I think Wollay would too :D

actionferret said...

I can't wait to play this!

YOLO said...

In my opinion I think that this game is complete.
Even it is not the most popular game in alpha, but I think that this game will be bought at least 2000 people will buy.

mikaldrago said...

this better be fast because i do not like having my time wasted!

Skylord_NimbleFoot said...

Types of people on this blog: The guy who wants the game to be released instantly so they can "Test The Game", The guy who knows nothing or a lot about the game and says "shut up and take my money!", The guy who knows a lot about the game and says "Let him work on it for 3+ more years guys, i would rather have a good game later than a rushed game now :)" Because if it was released now it he wouldint be able to add things in through updates... DERP, The guy who comes on, sees cubes and thinks it a minecraft clone and leave (8 year old retards who know nothing about games other than the ones made since 2009. Then theres me... The kind of person who sees this realisticly and has done this kind of thing before... My opinion: Release the game soon once the big bugs are taken out, patch out the bugs through the communitiy talking about it and adding new features through new updates.. I just thought say this because there are so many people here who really need to think about what they are about to say before they say it.. Cheers from TBA ~Skylord

Alex Matlis said...

just stick with cubeworld it is a great name

Fueler said...

This game looks awesome! To Steam or not, it's all about marketing. If Wollay thinks he can earn enough without using Steam then go for it. Otherwise, put it on Steam, get a headline, get more people and even though you make less per sale you may make more overall.


Keep up the great work, you're an inspiration to small indie developers.

softbi.blogspot.com said...

Thank you nice post.i think i get something from this post.
latest software go softbi

Pedro Fernandes said...

Hey Wollay!

I just found out about your game in my facebook newsfeed. A friend of mine "liked" a picture in your FB page and it appeared on my feed, thank god it did! I fell in love with your game the minute I laid my eyes upon its art style!

When I discovered that it was inspired in my all time favourite games (zelda, diablo etc) I knew this was my game. Although I see that it is still in development (please take your time) I would really like to donate some money to help you bring this awesome game to life. If you decide to implement a donation feature I will be there ;)

Now about the game:

Im really loving the adventure feel that your are giving to the game, the endless world, the dungeons, the towns and castles and all the epic fights that wait for us in this game really make me think that this is one of those games without a story where it is YOU that drives the story forward as you see fit. And I must say, I love it XD

I hope that we and our friends will be able to do more than just fighting tough, it would be cool if we could create like campfires to rest during the travels or just to spend the night and just recall on our past adventures!

Keep it up! Awesome game. 5 out of 5!

MrFig88 said...

I want to play the game, but I don't want to get a bunch of stupid viruses from the surveys, and I don't want to give out any personal information, if you really want to make money of this game, just charge people for the game.

Please make cube world compatible with a mac, it would give the game that everyone loves a good kickstart.
