i take it from this undead are playable then?

wollay said...

Yes.

Mixinghoney said...

YES!

Drewman70 said...

wow. this is looking great. my thoughts are that this game should be mainly based on combat. If you add more CRAZY attacks and that...hmm how do i say it?...... well if you have the enemies take maybe longer to kill depending on how the player is fighting. say the player comes in and is jumping around knocking the enemies back and preforming amazing attacks. each attack shouldnt be a swing of a weapon. it should alternate. like maybe a double spin if you get __ combos. and then there id where youre character can parry so there can be crazy combat based off of strategy that will give the player a differnet experience in each fight. THATS WHAT YOU WANT!!! you want to have the player be able to get a different fight experience each time. if the player goes in to a fight and all they have to do is stand in the middle of a group of enemies and click the left button a couple of times. You should have the player make different attacks each time so that the player can knock back the enemie and keep chasing them and destroying them with a defferent attack each time. Sorry it took me so long to explain but this is what i would like to have in this game.

Please take my feedback into consideration. Thanks :)

Is it possible to arrange the blocks to improve your weapon range? Or are they intangible?

Jpneze said...

Great! I see that you added the dodge system too.

Chris Atzoglou said...

Could u make it so that each kind of enemy populates different biomes, eg; Lizardmen = swamps, Dwarves = mountains AND (there's a big "and" there) can u make it so u can still find those other creatures in other biomes, but they're rare and in groups. Like an adventuring party of dwarves in undead turf. If they see Undead, they attack them!

Chris Atzoglou said...

Plz, consider it. PLZ!

Guillaume said...

I do not know if it already exists, but I think we should put the equipment in order to make possible mining, harvesting ...
I think that to have them there should be people, and when you kill them, they provide working tools.
The resources collected, can be used for the construction of buildings, weapons and armor, and the improvements for all this.
For the construction of objects, we can found villagers that make construction of objects,as for buildings.
Also, I do not know if this could be possible, but it should be able to build his own village. For that, the villagers arrive in the village if the building is acceptable to him. 
Put as the possibility to bargain, to buy potions, mushrooms, equipements... with a marchand.

And finally, I like to tested this game for the bugs, and for give more ideas

Ken Anthony said...

GREAT! I no longer have mixed feelings about the new combat system anymore now that there's dodging..  This video made me ask, is there like a type of lock on system together with the combat system?

Mixinghoney said...

Is there peaceful creatures , like pigs, chickens , cows? It will look kinda awful if you keep running into hostile mobs.. anyway , Great game dude! :D

Atrain742 said...

New vid looks awesome! Just wondering why the character lights up whenever he swings the sword.

Alexander Winfield said...

Excellent! I see you've fixed the combat system. Your new spirit system works well with the old (current) system. Great work.

Ryua said...

Ive kept up with the progress of this for the last few weeks, and I love your new spirit system. :O Augmenting your weapon in such a way is seemingly like a more...direct...form of enchantment. I would however like to see spirits gain an...alternative use in magic. A leveled magic user with many spirits destroying mountains and summoning meteors, in stead of simply a buffed fireball or lightning bolt. Just something to consider when you get about inplimenting magics. ^.~

Greenjoegames said...

Im sort of hoping for a lot of mob on mob interaction, but only if you can see so there aren't random stuff on the ground :D
itd be cool to watch a troll kill a bunch of lizardmen before turning on you.

JonnyAce said...

Just wanted to say...

This game looks like it's going to be amazing. Thankyou for the continued work, Wollay.

weston said...

its good to see the knock-back combat back. 

Mormy said...

that looks awesome now everyone can have there own look and weapon  based off of editing system

Minecraftiens said...

granted leveling system needs work if it was lvl 30 yeah i can see everything being 1 exp but for lvl one that seem incomplete

jdawg1221 said...

can't wait for this. This is gonna be amazing

Inglip_Ua said...

amazing !!!

Beta? Where do I sign up :D

Absolutezro said...

Find pink spirits, Turn sword into dildo. profit.

Double_DeluXe said...

Will certain spirits also be more effective for certain races?
e.g. the unholy spirits are more effective for(or against) the undead etc. ?

And do the spirits also apply to ranged/non-melee weapons?

Richard Hill said...

Is there going to be some limit on the number of cubes you can attach to weapons? It seems like their amounts should be limited by the level of the weapon (unless the spirit cubes themselves have levels, in which case unlimited is fine). Lastly, will there be some way to remove cubes? Possibly with a chance of losing them, or at monetary expense.

I'm loving how it looks, by the way.

Padrio said...

When did you make the first Alpha?

i so reeeaalllyyyy want to play this Game <3

Samuel said...

Woollay quando vai sai o jogo ???

Jordanske said...

I WANNA PLAY!@#@%^#@!%$^@#&$^&#$^@#@#%!

Rahuno said...

Wie lange arbeitest du eigentlich jetzt schon an dem Spiel?

Zeb McNeil said...

Is there any difference between the races the player plays other than the way they look?

Ebu_diGriz said...

Yay! Undead is playable race! This will be my first character :). I like the idea of spirit system. There should be also something like perma-lighting content for armor. That would be awsome during the night!

Can't wait to see another races! Good job!

Ebu_diGriz said...

I think this system will be implemented during next phases. For now it is rather for testing and also for people watching these videos - to show them, what sort of creatures/NPCs have been already created.

ilyas achternaam said...

werewolfs i need werewolfs plz

wollay said...

That perma-lighting idea is cool... I think I'll add light spirits which are glowing permanently.

wollay said...

Yeah it's indeed more fun with knock-back.

wollay said...

Each character lights up when he's attacked. And the spirit cubes on the swords start to glow.

wollay said...

You can lock on to a target. If you do so, the level and name is displayed on top of it and the player automatically turns towards the target. The camera is still controlled with the mouse.

wollay said...

Exactly.

wollay said...

In combination with knock-back an increased weapon range would be overpowered (I tested it already).

Tsx1096 said...

Just wondering, will you be able to upgrade bows in the same way? And if so, what would their finisher be? Shooting 3 arrows possibly? Or an elemental shot of whatever spirits are on the bow?

wollay said...

I wanted to add just different resistances to certain races. But your idea is great and I think I'll add something like 'affinity':
Each race has a different affinity for a certain spirit. This increases both the resistance against this spirit and the offensive effect.So undead will get unholy affinity, dwarves earth affinity, frogmen water affinity, elves nature affinity etc.

abc said...

aww =( Would be really cool if knock back and + range were stats, so you could like have one of them and upgrade it just like the sword

wollay said...

And yes, you can also add spirits to bows.

wollay said...

I'm still thinking about a good finisher. Maybe a shot which results in an elemental explosion which affects all enemies in range.

Buck said...

Meka a Beta or a Alpha PLEASE i whant THIS !!!!

Buck1800 said...

I like the Buidling sistem :)

MaGiK ToM said...

I know you love feedback and ideas :)



Do you know the game Spore? It has a nice way to organazise social interactions.



A reputation system that depend on the way you are (if you do missions, if you fight against people...)

-agressive

-friendly

-opportunist



The civilization have differents philosophie (missions could depend on
these philosophies,, plus the "normal missions" as kill goblin, look for
an arctifact):

-> here are the differents philosophies inspired by Spore





-Menestrel (Funny people, live for jokes and music)

-Ecologist (Protect nature defend rare species, people who want to destroy it have to be exterminated)

- Fanatic (Live for their faith, people have to approve the way they think)

- Diplomatic (They negociate, for them the peace come from a dialogue between civilizations)

- Scientist (The scientists have a logical and rational mind, the world has to be understood)

-Negociant (Negociant is above all speculateur, live for money)

- Warrior (They make their own laws, they never ask for authorization: the world belongs to the one who is the strongest)

- Tramp (They love the idea of discovery, the exploration is what they love the most)

- Knight (They fight for the good of all citizens. They will stop when the evil will disappear)

Corin said...

About 17,000 people have viewed your profile, which means there is at least 16,500 people want to play alpha, and I am guessing that at least 16,000 people would pay to get in. that’s 16,000+ people that would play this game non-stop testing it for bugs. At a 5$ to get into alpha testing you could make 80,000$ relatively quickly, at a 10$ to get into alpha testing you could make 160,000$ relatively quickly, and at a 15$ to get into alpha testing you could make 240,000$ relatively quickly and so on. Not to mention how many people would tell their 300+ Facebook “friends” about the game.

Oliver Thompson /ojmt999 said...

thats awesome!

J C Plutrebien said...

Fairy which can follow you (from 1 to 3 fairy) (a little inspired by Disney Epic Mickey) that depend on the way you are.
--> good - blue
--> green - evil

Make them "attack" when you use a touch. One blue fairy make freeze and lossing life of an opponnent. Green make an opponent fight for you during 5-6 seconds

Double_DeluXe said...

Even more awesome

Jordan said...

Please make it alpha or something :'(
This looks much better then minecraft!



....or at least a release date? :P

Axel said...

pls make a lizard/reptile/dragon/draconian playable creature/character. pls pls =)
and the spirit system looks awesome, but i wonder, can you remove blocks so that you could make a totaly red or green sword (a lightsaber=))? or something like a poison dagger? and is there a chance that there will be spears/halberds? maybe to be used whit a shield.

Samuel said...

Amigo Me da uma data  de lançamento da alfha estou loko pra jogar esse jogo.

Wesley Fenlon said...

Absolutely love the style you've developed with Cube World and the extra mile you're going with features like weapon customization. That's really cool, and will no doubt have most of your players addicted immediately ;) 

Looking forward to playing it, and seeing how else deformable terrain plays into the game. It was cool when the ogre in the last combat video knocked holes in the ground--voxels are just perfect for that stuff.

Tanaka said...

How many types of spirits can you put on a piece of equipment? Will you be restricted to one type or will we be able to add as many as you like?

Tsx1096 said...

Now that would be awesome

Tsx1096 said...

When its done :P No need to rush a good game, or it'll turn out like Call of duty

Ninjabart122 said...

Will placing cubes be a required aspect to upgrade your weapon? I wouldn't want to continue adding cubes just to increase power(?) if I like how the weapon looks as it is.

In a previous video, you equipped a pair of shoulder guards. Will we also be able to place cubes there, or will cube placement be exclusive to weapons and shields?

Will we be able to build things from scratch via template?

and if a few of these questions were answered before, I do sincerely apologize.

FlamingDragon96 said...

Wollay, what are the races so far? Is it only dwarf, elf, undead, orc, human, and frogmen? I'm guessing lizardman is there, are there more races?

Michal V. said...

I think that many aspects of current system is still under consideration. This is pre-alpha version - (almost) everything is still in development - nobody can really say, how is this or that going to be used.

I would like to see system of upgrades with more possibilities how to improve the equipment. For example chance not only to add some special spirit cubes, but also replace original parts by them - that should solve your "problem with adding" :).

Jordan said...

 Touché.

Maybe a littile release so we can enjoy it for 5 minutes like Call Of Duty :P

Jordan said...

JK, :P I will  wait, I'm so exited >~<

CorruptShadows said...

I know this isn't related to spirit but have you thought of a vampire race or something like what I am thinking about? In the Suns light they cause less damage, slightly weaker resistance to damage, lower jump height, etc etc. But then in the dark they get a bit of night vision, slightly higher jump than other classes, a bit more damage done on enemies, etc. But the buffs in the dark would be balanced by the de-buffs in the light making the character have to think a bit more strategically during the day?

MrKewb said...

You should add village invasions. like if you stay in a village for some time the village gets attacked by dwarves or lizardmen 

Chris Atzoglou said...

awesome! Glad that's in there, was kinda worried about the randomness of creatures.

sincerelysyntax67 said...

Hey wollay your next video should have PVP in it!

Kevin said...

This is so impressive, I am lost for words and going to follow your blog! I actually want this game now, it looks so impressive!! Is this going to cost or will it be free? How on earth did you make this, what skills do you need because I have always wanted to make my own game but as a hobby more than anything!

RenawRecon said...

My Ideas
1. You should add skills, it seems like a fast-pace game for it
2.You should vehicles- Wood boats,Hot air balloons,ETC
3.You could add these secret places like if in a castle there's a 20% for it to have a basement or "dungeon"
4.SHOPS! YOU NEED SHOPS BRO! which would mean you need a money system, but you could get the money from humanoid enemies or quests
5.Farming, you could get seeds from birds,Quest, and shops (4th idea if you want to make them)
Hopefully these will help you, my 6th was going to be seasons but i thought that would be to much work. I THINK YOUR DOING GREAT ON THIS PROJECT!

Jdttbean said...

werewolves as a playable race :D

sincerelysyntax67 said...

Hey wollay you should also implement a dps meter to keep track of dps/second, also other stats like play time, enemies defeated / races killed etc.

Michael said...

...not to mention Notch's inevitable tweet...

Lilmilkman23 said...

It's cool and all that there are new playable races, but are we still gonna be able to customize the new races? Like I'm finding it hard to see how we could customize the orcs and undead...

Keirriley said...

How would i go investing into your game "probs wont" but if i come into some money i think this would be a good investment.

S.Tanner.J said...

Im just wondering what aother pets are you going to add?

kees Van Vugt said...

Ahh well this video answers a lot of my previously unanswered questions :). I love it.

jordan said...

That would be awesome!
And maybe they get stronger with.a full moon? Or night.

AntiHeadshot said...

WOW!!! awesome ideas, awesome game!

Tobias Dahmen said...

Awesome idea, awesome game!!!

Mizugami The Water God said...

I think the number of cubes is equal to the level of the weapon, ex, sword + 40 means there is 40 blocks on the sword? I'm just guessing though, but from how they the sword looked, it seems right.

Mizugami The Water God said...

I'd be interested to see if he adds things like mining and other things like lumberjacking, things like that, I'd be interested to see how it'd work out, the consept of adding to oyur weapon as it upgrades in very nice, would give a real sence of growth to your character, other then leveling up of course. Though being the rpg freak I am, I'd like to see a stats screen, but thats just me, I like seeing the numbers go up as I level, like "Ooooh, the number increase as I level!" *insert derpy smilly face here* kind of thing, I just go braindead with games with stat screens and grind for hours just to watch the number increase...

Cence99 said...

Awesome work, Wollay!

The game is already epic, and I ask me, when the game will be released

Dasfosten said...

Hay,
kann man dann auch die pfeile die man schiesst mit spirits aufrüsten??

loymaster said...

can you create a forum for Cube world ?

It would be good to speack with you about your game no ?

Fênix said...

man release the alpha version of Cube World,this is so cool

Kurakort said...

skeleton, orc and man this race? Or is it just a costume?

Nachtrae said...

With every new update, the game looks better and better. Give us a beta already!! :D

Anyways, asking for the obvious aside:
If you have say, fire and ice spirits, will they cancel each other out? Or other elements that won't work together, making you end up with a useless weapon if you're not careful?

Guest said...

when will the game?

Adam said...

This game is showing all sorts of potential.  Is there an over arching goal in the game like a final end boss (or bosses).  Beyond just having fun, what is the motivation to explore and level up?  I'm not being critical, just asking.

William Smith said...

YES

William Smith said...

YES

Joao vitor said...

I will make a beta version wollay pro staff i see the game that's so encrivel
can do more than Suceso minecarft po ae releases or make a gameplay
30 to 10 minutes but just wanted to say amazing game and qo. 

Camullins2001 said...

well i like if you get um some like metal and other objects you can make a custom sword like on the video plz put that

Aaron Howell said...

can i make sword biger a troll?

joey said...

u should make this game free first then make it cost money; this game easily has the potential to be as famous/good as minecraft. i cant wait!

Bakwards into Space said...

Or at least the ability to become either a werewolf or a vampire

Bakwards into Space said...

What if you added more spirits like a holy spirit and then they have extra damage against undead

Bakwards into Space said...

For weapon customization so as to keep it a sword or a mace etc. u should have a core shape and size that cant be re-customized but other than that u should be able to make wat u want

Xela Rator2 said...

I see that your using Eric Cartman's, "You Can't Come!" Technique. AGH, RELEASE THE GAME ALREADY, Eric.....jk. But when will this come out?!?!

Jeremiah123098 said...

You so have to make a beta for this.

Bayreagen said...

Is there going to be guns like terraria?
 Or even mounts

Anthony said...

would be awesome if there was an implementation of an old stylish rifle.
Melee has 3 weap types so far why cant range have more then 1 :)
Rifles may do more damage then bow and arrow yet it is slower to load, or something like that would be awesome

Dr.Mister said...

I CANT WATE 4
 diS GAME FOOL

Miles Capel said...

what are all the races?

Oskar Emil Jacobsen said...

i am so glad that u changed it to C++! it's just soooo beautiful!

F43ser said...

You should make more Demos because we cant wait so we dont even think of forgetting this game

BRAIN99 said...

Could you add trainable dragons? With differing colors and the dragon-fire in relation with scale color. Also maybe some with horns and some with frills surrounding the neck. Oh and DRAGON ARMOR that'd be EPIC!

Matias Izquierdo said...

What is the Game Price? :3

Sébastien said...

YES

Adam said...

it would be great if you fix that we can remove spirits from weps and save them instead of trowing then away

Adam said...

you should do so we can change geneder, race, class

Nitrax8699 said...

i have an idea, when a npc traveler tells you something like "i would like to have a [nameofpet] pet" or "my favorite food is [name of food]", the player can give them the food for the pet, the pet or the food they like, when the players gives them what they like, they go with the player and the player can just have 3 friends to go in adventure, and each friend can have a pet (in a new inventory for every friend to equip what the player want to them), if you want, dont do the thing of the inventory and pets for the friends, but i would like the friends thing

Matthew E said...

is it at all possible to remove blocks from a customised weapon? by this i mean that if you accidently use the entire cube customisation limit on a sword and you want to add a spirit then can you remove one of the iron cubes to add the spirit? if not this would be an extremely usefull additon to the game
