It's been one Month since Cubeworld has been released as Alpha version and I have played it for 'some hours. What is Cubeworld, you may ask?
Cubeworld (or Cube World) is a Voxel-Based-Open-World-Action-RPG (think 3D Dot Game Heroes) for Windows (Mac and Console Ports are planned, too). According to the Developer "Wollay", it has been inspired by games like Minecraft, Zelda, Secret of Mana, Monster Hunter, Diablo, World of Warcraft "and many more".
While this may be true, Cubeworld still feels like a very original game, even if it's just because that mix is so unique. The Art Style is very lovely and the Combat is fast & fun.
The only thing that bothers me ATM is that it can take quite a while to shake an aggressive monster off your butt, but that's about it. Many things are planned for the game and it only costs 15$ right now, so be sure to grab yourself a(digital) copy and support Wollay and his Wife, who is also a part of the dev-team :)
