New Screenshots

Hey, I'm currently very busy with the dungeon system. It's really tricky and I hope to be able to show you some upates about it soon. In the meantime, here are some new screenshots in which you can see a few new features, like:

- Two-handed weapons: Greatswords and greatmaces
- Combo-system is back: subsequent hits increase damage and have different animations
- Improved camera and targeting
- Kingdoms: There are now kingdoms with frontier walls and guards
- Dungeon entrance with runestone: you can port back to the runestone when you've completed a dungeon
- Ring item menu for quick access of consumable items
- Coins: enemies now drop copper, silver and gold coins

 Will the dragons randomly fly about the world or just hop along the ground? If they fly around i'll donate my kidney

Cynexyl said...

So epic.

KiwiAtomique said...

ist das ein episches spiel^^ ich kanns kaum erwarten bis es draußen ist 

Mrthalax said...

Looks awesome, Picture 10 and 11 look like a "You will never know what this weird statue is" situation isn't it? Also the huge sword (I'm guessing it's like a Long/Broad Sword?) looks cool. Lastly DRAGONS OMG TAKE MA MONEY NOW!!! or you know something along those line :D

CubeWorldFR said...

Epic.. *-*

Ebu_diGriz said...

Yay, kingdoms! Will be there any diplomatic relations among them, that you should participate or just watch? For example act like messenger, diplomat, war fighter, king etc.
Really nice progress :)

Oscar said...

Will there be any beta testing?! :D

Leonard Dulitz said...

You hurting me with thoose pictures, please just take my Money and let me play it q.q

A Dude said...

It's starting to get fairly frustrating watching this get developed but being unable to try it. We want to help play test this thing man. We want to ask for things and then you choose the ones that you like and implement them and we'll be excited for new releases and tweet about it and our friends will see it and also buy the game, etc. Seriously. There's no reason, esp based on the videos and screens we've seen here, that you can't let people play it. Don't design this in a vacuum!

wollay said...

I'm planning to add reputation, i.e. you can increase your reputation in a kingdom by doing quests and then get access to certain areas and items.

Ebu_diGriz said...

Wollay is reading all the feedback and some ideas of fans were already considered as good to be implemented. Moreover, he is still suprising us by new ideas, so it seems that his imagination and creativity provides tons of great ideas. Let his potential come to light.

NuttZhot said...

I want! any information i can get about the relise date?

Michael Giuliano said...

If there are randomly flying dragons that you just encounter like Skyrim, I will (1) shit my pants, (2) donate the money for the operation for you to donate your kidney, and (3) I'll burn my holy copy of Skyrim and worship Cube World from now on.

SpunkyToasters said...

PLEASE tell me this will be playable on Mac... 

Timothy Stevens said...

So, in your opinion, how far along in completion are you? By the looks of those pictures I would hazard a guess at about 75-80% finished.

Lars said...

Das wird ein großartiges Spiel!
Kannst du vielleicht versuchen, einen Editor für Gegner zu machen?

Redsatakun said...

it is said that the game will be released in like2 months or so (at least thats what I heard)

Zeb McNeil said...

He plans on it.

BlueLiquidPlus said...

Can't wait until this is released... if it offers multiplayer with a persistant world and server hosting software I will never play MineCraft again.

Narby said...

I seem to recall that you previously changed over to DirectX. Does this completely put the kaibosh on a Mac version ever being released? Is there any chance of porting over to OpenGL to allow for cross platform compatibility before release?

You have to admit that having compatibility across both platforms can only increase your sales. ;)

Also, any plans for releasing this via Steam whenever it is at a production ready stage or will it be a direct release from your site?

hoohoo4 said...

Wollay, any chance of closed testing? I have tested many games and am very interested in this one.

Alehpunk said...

one hint man, when this game complete, put this in humble bundle you are be millionare *-*

lowmotion said...

I will totally buy this game!
But please don't make a buggy release, take you time and make it worth the money

Brandan said...

Im throwing money at the screen and nothing is happening

LOL said...

Oh my GREAT GOD, I WANT THIS GAME! PLEASE MAN! RELEASE SOME BETA, I DON'T KNOW! I have to play it :(

Guillaume Canetbedier said...

do you add a marchent, and if you add it, can you buy spirit, métal, wood... for upgrade your weapons?

P.S: I like the animation for a bow (air strike) =)

piphee said...

mmmm wol lay lvl 1, 21832485 spirits, obsidian armor and weapons + spirits. You use cheats

another dude said...

From a strategic standpoint Wollay is doing everything right and I commend him. Release v1.0 when it's ready not when people clammer for it. The second it gets into people's hands the bitching begins. People start creating entitled wishlists about what the game needs to and needs not do. Not saying Wollay won't listen, and he should. But that wishlist will be far more scattered and unmanageable if the game isn't built on a solid foundation. How close is the game to that foundation? Only Wollay knows (despite how it "appears" in ss and vids). We have no idea what the actual state of the game is.

I promise you as bad as you want the game out, he wants it out more.

Be patient.
Be appreciative he shares as much as he does and personally comments on these forums.
This game is gonna dude.

Mixinghoney said...

Awesome!

It won't as much a wollay said. The game will be released when it is finished.

WTH where did the dragons come from?

Scott Barnes said...

In over 15yrs i've never actually looked forward to a game more than this one. I think I'd just sit in-game and just stare at the level of detail gone into this game...

Giuliano said...

WOW, nice wollay, i want THIS GAME !!!! I CAN PAY TO PLAY, well everybody can '-'

Lorfour said...

 You choose a nice way with this system of reputation ! Just continue.

Another idea  is about a philosophy for each villagies or kingdom, that add special missions, i saw someone developp this idea in another article of this blog

CoRn0 said...

Hey ! Can you please tell which library you use with OpenGL to create the window and everything ?

Installshield_Wizard said...

I really like this, but with 2-handed weapons, how will upgrading work?  Would you just get double benefits from placed cubes, or be able to place twice as many to keep things balanced with 1-handers?

Tja11 said...

will you make it so you can capture, or create a kingdom? That would be amazing...

guestto said...

Elemental dragons please!

Ratlor said...

No

thedirtyspaceman said...

i <3 u so much :')

Krystian Gaymon TheZombie said...

Noooooooooo now everyone is gonna bitch about ripping off of world of warcraft

Corin said...

LOL!! now THAT was a TROLL!!!!!

GIRGmr said...

He is the one developing the game, of course he has good stuff. You really think companies like Mojang played through the retarded amounts of hours it takes to get to a dragon just to make sure it works right? No. He gives himself the good stuff so he can quickly test, make modifications, test again and get actual progress done. It doesn't even take a bag full of hammers to figure that shit out.

Anonymous said...

Looks awesome! But can their be a building system? Like minecraft wear you gather resources and what not.

hl2wasgreat said...

Will monsters of the same type have different stats based on the region they're from.

Zeb McNeil said...

There actually was a dragon in an older screen shot. 
http://wollay.blogspot.com/2012/01/new-cube-world-screenshots-jungle.html Look in the background of the second screen shot.

Ken Anthony said...

Very nice...

deldrice said...

I really think he needs to get this started on kickstarter.com, offer beta/alpha access or a pre-order of some kind.....$$$$

Corin said...

 No

Eric Rosenquist said...

 No.

bobsayssup said...

ah man it  would be nice to see some different kind of bows like crossbows or something.
and also i would like to be able to help towns develope and see them grow, that would be perfect.

Juzzyenvy said...

 this game seems to be getting better and better by the hour :]

Riku said...

Looking forward to this game!

ByteMeeeeee said...

 yes

ByteMeeeeee said...

 whooosh

ByteMeeeeee said...

 considering mac makes up <5% of the market and porting the whole thing to OpenGL is a huge task to take on. i wouldnt bother myself...

bleet said...

 creating a game is like watching grass grow. it takes 1000's of hours especially when its just one guy. Seriously just be patient, it will be MONTHS if not a year before this is properly finished. assuming he doesnt get sick and tired of the endless whining on these message boards!

Krivosijaaleksa said...

You replied
:P

Ron9630 said...

Best Game Ever!!! TAKE MY MONEY

Emanuele Frasca said...

I hate the new HP Monster bar .-.

Vectruz said...

i relly want play this game xD...and if this game can played in first person cam i pay more for this...i really want play one game like this but in first person =x minecraft have fail battle sistem =x skyrim don't have random generation then i want play it!
sorry for bad English

Corin said...

you can play in first person in cube world

Corin said...

pleas wollay, you said you added the combo-system and that "hits increase damage and have different animations", can you show us the animations?

Nachtrae said...

this game becomes more and more awesome with every new update. Are those other guys in one of the screenshots soldier/guard npc's?

Though I must admit, I liked the previous health bars more than this one.

Zeb McNeil said...

Most likely they are other people.

Francisco montenegro said...

We can make wars of kingdoms? That should be epic, but I dont know if the computers gonna support that O.o

wollay said...

They're guards and the old health bars are still there. The additional health bar is for the selected target.

Distortedlizard said...

No

Totoplus62 said...

He wollay i was thinking of something that could be very nice! (quite like sharing tracks in trackmania for example) :D

Imagine in the future you create a very small and simple tool (integrated to the game) which enable you to create your own quests, your own story, "only the structure" with dialogue and objectives.
Then people share these quests on the internet (on a special website) to sort them (short, medium, long, easy, hard) that permits you to give a mark when testing them. Then you can download packages of best quests that directly integrated them to the game (player can accept these quests when NPC randomly gives him)!

Laure said...

 Quite like RPG Maker ?

Corin said...

wollay, Y U NO show magic class? (you thought i was going to say "RELEAS GAME?!?!" now didn’t ya?

Shaidon said...

Hope you add elements to build structures to your game. Maybe blueplint cards with shapes, droped from mobs. Would be nice if we could build houses, strongholds, towers and alike.

Corin said...

http://wollay.blogspot.com/2012/01/screenshots-blueprints-mobs-pets.html

Dylan said...

Good updates enjoying to see the good progress with your fantasy game!

Samuel Augusto Sobrinho said...

YAAAAAAAAAAAAY ! Great Swords ! I really want to play this game !

Painiscupcake said...

no

Krystian Gaymon TheZombie said...

Make the Runestones glow so we can spot them easily. It would also give a nice feeling to it 2. Or it would just be a boring old looking stone

Quantum said...

I hope the dragon uses ranged attacks. No more rubbish enderdragons. The combat in this game looks awesome and I love the idea of tumbling through the air, wrestling a dragon while it tries to shake you free and incinerate you. Thats what dragon fights should be like... :)

James said...

Wollay, I stumbled upon this and I am blown away. It looks awesome. I'm just dropping a comment to tell you that and... I am a pixel artist. If you need a hand you can find me at james_kay2248@hotmail.co.uk. If you don't, that is fine. Keep up the amazing work!

Dariusz B said...

Must have :P

Daxalog said...

I just hope the combos are long enough or optional so that the combat doesn't become a constant 1-2-3 1-2-3 1-2-3. Then again i haven't seen it the combo system for this update so i don't know yet.

Heriod77777 said...

Has anyone noticed how many players were in the world? Look at the map. They might not be players, just NPCs.

Minecrafted said...

Im sorry, but it seems like this game is using auto-bot every time you fight a npc/mob... is it just me or does it seem like it to you? Oh yeah, my computer killed a npc/mob, woot! I hope it not like that. I hope you actually get to control your attacks and where the sword is going (also bows and other weapons too)
I could be wrong...

Emanuele Frasca said...

 thank goodness

Anonymous said...

please !!!! launch the game !!! I can not wait for the game ! bid the game fast!

Keith Turbo said...

HHHNNNGGG my money you must take posthaste!

Shaidon said...

 I saw that. I was talking about shapes, and not just pre fabricated walls and roofs.

x_XGreedX_x said...

Greatsword is just @wes0m3!

Flodos said...

this looks like  an awesome game! the blocky setting will (i think) really pay for itself in things like (enter example :D) when you go a-questin' and pwning some dugeons along the way, but return to find your home kingdom in wastes, with the walls ruined and monsters roaming the streets. (minimalistic blocks will give the meaning of the structure, without forcing texture or graphics on the player, who is eager to notice buggy or crappy graphics.) i got one question tho' will it be first player too?

Zeb McNeil said...

The answer to your question is yes.

Don Patchi said...

Shut up and take my-
no, i'm not going to be pathetic

even though it still looks awesome :D

Jo_coombs123 said...

please be free :) make money from ads ;) 

Rayz1307 said...

I must buy this game
which is in my cvPLEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSEEEEEE!!!

Proxx said...

Ich finde es wäre schön wenn Wollay bei bestimmten Leveln Skils einfügen würde die man den auf einer Skilleiste einsetzen kann.

raphi said...

Can't wait for the release. enough teasing here.. :-p

Darkfire77771 said...

When the beta?

Cyanistic said...

You should let this game be played by others while it's still in development. It does wonders for games sometimes. It causes more people to be interested in sharing the game, causes more people to figure out bugs and suggest more features, and etc. It's over all just a better idea then creating the game and not letting anyone play it beforehand.

Cyanistic said...

 Edit: I'd be happy paying a discount fee to help with the game.

Corin said...

Should be, this month. JJJJJJJJJ

Corin said...

Seriously? Image this: It took you 1h, but you finally got to the boss in the dungeon, during the fight you get an pop up ad, by the time you close it you are dead and you have to restart.

Heriod77777 said...

NO!.......GOD NO!.......NO! NO! NO!.........GOD DAMNED NOOOOOO!....NO! ( Lol, just no.)

Heriod77777 said...

Hopefully...... 2-4-8-16-32-64-128-256-ect. I hope we can get Spirits from Over World Bosses.

Heriod77777 said...

( Face palm) Read the FAQ.

Heriod77777 said...

Please Wollay, make Dragons super hard and have em drop enormous XP.

Heriod77777 said...

Nah, he shouldn't have to do much on something when he has his hands full on combat.

Heriod77777 said...

Lol? WTF would the point be in character creation ( He said he wanted it so you could create how your character looks.) What is so good about first person view anyways? It is ruined by the fact its on the screen and not covering everything up.

Heriod77777 said...

What? Why? Its fine, and you can still see the 3D health bar above them when locked on to the enemy.

Heriod77777 said...

WTF? Your like 10, Great Mases and Great Swords are in a TON of games.

Heriod77777 said...

Lol, the weapons have been seen in other games. He got the Finish moves idea from the Back Slice, Helm Splitter which was used before in Zelda. What I can see new is that he made randomly generated names and made a cool map.

SirDerianS said...

weapon suggestions: scimitar, halberd? landscape suggestions: fruit trees? mob suggestions: ghosts, dwarf-sized monsters?    I'm not begging for this stuff but maybe consider adding it or no,t if you don't want to then just keeping working on the thing you are working on your doing good.

Heriod77777 said...

Maybe....

Heriod77777 said...

I think I will do that. It should be good.

hl2wasgreat said...

 Wollay, will monsters be differentiated by region. By that I mean will
monsters in different regions have unique characteristics than those of
the same type in other areas. Like say you get a quest to kill a certain
amount of lizard men or whatever they're called and the questgiver
explains, "Beware, lizard men in this area have much more endurance and
tend to be resistant to fire. However they do show weakness air."

Sean said...

Assuming there is an Under World?

Dylan Pagels said...

like this if he should release to alpha for bug testers

Sean said...

Or even not spawn until you reach a higher level, a lvl 2 dragon doesn't seem very intimidating.

piphee said...

I know man, is just a joke ¬¬

piphee said...

Nope, no reply for you
.

Wait....

futureCubeworldmodder said...

Is it okay to flag people for repeating the same joke A MILLION TIMES!!!
(shut up and take my money)...*grumble* *grumble*
also I love the progress in the game, will there be a parkour aspect to it like you could use the bricks out of those walls to climb up?

Brad Leguier said...

NO! I HAVE GOT SO HYPED UP ABOUT THIS GAME! DO NOT WRECK MY HOPES!

Brad Leguier said...

Hopes reestablished. Thank you so very much.

Ky3 said...

Indie games are a dangerous investment of time. Keep at it Wollay! :) I like that you're not half-baking it and releasing it early. I've never been so excited for a game! 

MegaRobloxFun said...

Hey wollay so I was thinking that you would upload the game and while we are playing there is a lunch screen opening this blog of the updates and all that if there is an update a screen will pop up saying update avalable do you wish to update and there is yes information no when you clike information you get a browser poping up with the updates

Zeb McNeil said...

I have wondered the same thing about the dumb jokes! And unless he has changed it you will be able to climb stuff, but I haven't seen anything on it for a while so I have no clue about much specifics.
Here's the post about it: http://wollay.blogspot.com/2011/11/climbing.html

PeN0R said...

OR..... a level editor that lets you make your OWN world, block by block, but you can choose to have a pre-made landscape...

PeN0R said...

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAX lol

PeN0R said...

Maybe

totoplus62 said...

 Don't think change landscape is a good idea for THIS game, why not for another, but new and original quest can always "recycle" the interest of the player for this game: you know something like Spore Galactic Adventures. With time you creater a bigger and bigger database of "official" quest (the best of cource).
But all of this is just an idea...

Harry said...

will the alpha be released in this month ? because wollay said " Q1 2012".... so march ?
thanks to anwser !

Santiago Fisher said...

Open some donationsdude! 

Narby said...

Where is this <5% of the market figure being derived from? If steam is any indicator developers are moving quickly to support both platforms. I will wait for an "official" reply from the developer on this one.

F34RzBack said...

Theres a DRAGON!
 

Laure said...

STOP ALWAYS ASKING WOLAY TO RELEASE HIS (AMAZING ;p ) GAME !

What ever happened to the fireball attack? I've seen it in an old video....... I liked the idea.

lookpopcorn said...

You don't say?

Brad Leguier said...

Its a serious disappointment that there will be no beta for this.

Brad Leguier said...

Wait, what? An alpha? Really?!

the derpinator said...

I'm throwing money at the screen but nothing is happening!

Ss said...

A question - Up to now how big is the world you created 
By the way how much the game will cost?

Corin said...

 there WILL be beta for this! ether this month or next month, wollay said so!

Quanros said...

Release this Fu**in Game lol, you doing updates and we just watch a screenshots... Release ALPHA or something like that... wtf.....

Oscar Fusdahl said...

if its online and you can make your own weapons it's HEAVEN!!

Dotan Yuster said...

plz plz publish a beta version(not in free) and the buyers gets the full version when its out like minecraft, think about that because i just cant wait anymore you killing us

Dendonflo said...

I don't want that game, I NEED that game !!!!!!!

And just a question, will we can mod it ?

Takuto said...

 When you want to bring out the first downloadable version of cube world?

LaybackStudios said...

Heya Wollay!

Loving the fortress/runestone idea.
I was thinking, maybe you could make a way to gain resources such as wood to build a house, and to upgrade your house with money.

Also, i was thinking if there could be something like an  'Arena Mode' where friends could go together in an Arena with bosses/regular enemies to advance for fortune and glory with waves of enemies or something like that. :)

Just an idea.

awesomeguy that is awesome said...

Cool i think he listened to my (or yours also) idea about currency and did i see a dragon awesome and cookies ftw aww yea

Brent said...

is there going to be a beta for this game, can't wait to try this out....here take my money....please.

brent sonier said...

oh yea forgot to put this but are the enemies going to explode when we kill 'em? like in this xbox live indie game i got called block zombies(basically a twin stick shooter), the zombies explode into lots of little blocks when you shoot them and it was probably the main selling point for me. it just looks so damn awesome. that would be great if you had that in this game.

brent sonier said...

ok just watched one of your vids and it answered my own question...stupid me! but i think you should refine the enemy block explosion just a bit to make it look even better. you and your fans will not be disappointed.

Zerosaiko said...

I'll be able to make own Cloud's buster sword! O_O

Sean said...

Thank you I totally forgot who that was, couldn't place my finger on it.

you should be able to somehow aquire a runestone that you can place in your house or in the perimiter of your house, oh and there should be a main rune stone the middle of the villages or castles but it should only be accessible if you do a favor for the mayor or king of the village.

Nelar said...

Can you write a maximum size of weapons in the game? I mean when modifyingweapons will limit or not?

Oskar Emil Jacobsen said...

oh my god that dragon is so nice! :D

Wollay:( pls update
