Cube World, a Crafty RPG Released

Can Cube World compare to Minecraft? What about the preceding adventure games such as Legend of Zelda? Find out about the game here, if you haven't started playing it yet!

Recently in the gaming community, was the release of Cube World on July 2nd, 2013, from the developers at Picroma. This game, featuring a Minecraft style world made of blocks with the aspects of an RPG friendly world. Featuring HP bars above mobs found in Final Fantasy, along with the adventure driven mode, like in Legend of Zelda.

Are Minecraft and Cube World the same thing?

Minecraft and Cube World are two completely different games, although they look alike and can sometimes have the same features. Minecraft has so many mods that can alter the game-play but it's blue-prints are a creative based game. Cube World is a functioning game focusing on adventure and exploration, although the graphics are similar to that of Minecraft. Cube World requires no mods to achieve the same glory, unlike Minecraft.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not putting Minecraft down. I'm a really big Minecraft buff, but I do respect what Picroma developed with Cube World. I've played on many RPG Minecraft servers, and although they have mods that increase game play, I enjoy the vanilla-feel from Cube World, with it being just as it is.

From what I've played of Cube World in the past six days, it seems to be a very remarkable game for being just released to the public. I can't help but be impressed with what has been given, and become baffled at the thought of what could be in store for the future of Cube World.

Honestly, would you rather have to pack your minecraft.jar with mods instead of purchasing a game that accomplishes that, while also being in Alpha? Hands down, I'd rather buy and play both games and get the best of both worlds. Not only does it involve avoiding a daunting task that's a pain in your you-know-what, but you can enjoy what each game primarily has to offer.

    Not gona lie, Cube World is amazingly fun... my only gripe with the game is that... I want more updates! There's already so much in the game but when I think of all the possiblities this game can yield... I get a childlike giddyness that I can't contain!

    I feel that the updates will be quick, since it's still Alpha. So much to add at this point, that the list must be growing for Picroma!

    From what i have seen till now, Cube Wolrd has great potential and can become a very good game. We will have to wait and see what Picroma has prepared for us.

    If they're nearly as impressive as Mojang has been with updates, I think we'll have some bright futures with Picroma!

    I do like the "graphics" of Cube World so far. I do hope they don't add the Texture Pack feature that Minecraft has, 'cause honestly I think it wouldn't be the same game (graphics). CW (that's a thing now) has a very smooth graphical feeling to it, being that it's voxel-based.
    I haven't gotten around to purchase it (Since I'm sort of broke). I think this is a potential Game of the Year 2014 (or whenever it's releasing). From what I've seen, it's a good mixture of RPG and Survival.

    The set up currently is very eye pleasing. The one good thing about not having texture packs is the eye viewing from all people. A draw back from Minecraft is always wondering if the person is viewing your building or work in the same texture pack. If it isn't the same, then it can be really off!

    Rax, you should definitely purchase it. I think you'd love it. No pressure though!
