Cube World Landscape Screenshots

Over the last few days I've been improving the landscape generator and rendering engine and I made a few screenshots. There are also some screenshots of the 3D world map, which is automatically recorded while you explore the world. It's basically a big version of the minimap.

wollay said...

Yes.

Freefall said...

This makes me want to just get up and explore once I'm in those worlds.

wollay said...

Some pets will be usable as mounts.

wollay said...

Segelbranth said...

Aidan Wolf said...

I noticed you had the same inventory throughout the screenshots, is the player able to go between different worlds? Thanks!

gabriram said...

you can not imagine the hype that you are creating

gabriram said...

I saw that there are many lakes and oceans there will be Ships and Boats in the game?

gabriram said...

and islands

Belgariad87 said...

Wollay, you are doing a great job and i can't wait to play it. The game looks absolutely beautiful and i can't keep my eyes off it. Try not to make us wait too much longer!

Raziel said...

Very nice

lapinou said...

Hi wollay! Very nice and impressive ;-)
But what about the name? Did you have already choose one?

Daniel le Pair said...

Wollay, make us wait as long as you have to, to make the game ready to be released. Keep up the good work (Y)

Austin said...

this game is going to be fantastic cant wait to give you my money wollay

Micah said...

Man, those are some really gorgeous landscapes.

Can't wait to stomp around this world.

Charakternik said...

I've got a question: You said earlier that you build your own voxel editor for this game. Will it be released as well, as perhaps some editor-tool for players to change or create in-game content like pets, monsters, biomes etc? Any plans for moding support in general?(mods are huge advantage for game which can guarantee long life and prospect for game :) ) This project is seriously amazing! And one more do you consider publishing game on Steam or some other platform?

Mike Petromilli said...

Wollay Y U SO GOOD AT MAKING GAMES?!?!?!

wollay said...

Yes, the player can go to different worlds. The screenshots were all taken in the same world.

Ali Gorcchanov said...

Pls guy make a alpha i cant wait the Game is so awsome i cant belive it ust WOW<<!

Crys3s said...

i hope you release it at christmas time :D
would be a nice present

OMENDI said...

Fantastic!

Relyte said...

Man, those alpine forests are gorgeous! This is a game I'm looking forward to just to explore around the world!

Floyd said...

Are there still going to be some wide not-so-hilly areas? It looks like it's mostly mountains now.

Nexus said...

There Won't be an Alpha, just the finished game when its deemed "Ready".

Mattie said...

When will it be "Ready" soooooooo excied

Michel Moosbauer said...

Wollay do you saw my Name for the game in the other post?
Here it is : KingdomTales or Tales of Kingdom ;D

CJdog89 said...

I noticed in screenshot 6 that there was a picture of a skeleton on a wall. Will you be able to make those or are those generated?

Kevin Baumgartner said...

Soon

Kevin Baumgartner said...

I will take it o3o

Sargamesh said...

Do you plan on having smooth lighting in the future?

Kevin Baumgartner said...

There won't be a alpha, just the finished game

Kevin Baumgartner said...

I guess generatet, you can may mine them and get special material

Senior Coconut said...

AMAZING! Can't wait to get my gaming thumbs on this game.

FranticIch said...

Wow, I didn´t believe that would the possible, but you did it; You made something epic more epicly... I want the game now O_O like everyone else, but I hope you take the time to make it perfect =3

FranticIch said...

Yes, a modding system would be awesome!

Zaxor said...

I guess I put a BETA before the start of the game.

Could you tell us if it's free or pay? It's the least likely, but if anyone likes the game so you can see in the pictures, may not seem to go so much fun, it's just a guess ...

I just wanted to know, because I am saving money to get the game as fast as you publish.

Thank you.

Diovos said...

Beautiful pics! =D

When this is out... I don't think I'll ever sleep again... And I'm cool with that...

Jannes Tölle said...

Wollay, your work is a real masterpiece (or how ever I should call it, I'm german, so my english is not that good). I've been following your work for over 1 year now, and this game looks totally good. So I'm totally gonna buy this when it comes out.
Und das du das Spiel auch auf deutsch rausbringst, gefällt mir noch mehr ;).
So keep up the good work.

Jannes Tölle said...

Haha ;)

Murilo Kinape Rivabem said...

the style of the map reminds me of skyrim :)

Shiftyblack said...

anyone else wondering how may characters we will be able to have?

Daniel said...

will the game require a good pc to run or could it run a slightly older one ?
any idea of the system requirements ?

Jason Wright said...

The game is looking amazing. I love the shot with the castle in the background. This is currently my most anticipated game. Gosh I can't wait to play it!

Khronos said...

Picture 12, 19 and 22 are so f*cking EPIC!!!

Austin Ghelli said...

is the penguin in the third to last picture a pet? cause that would be AMAZING!

Austin Ghelli said...

seriously wollay. think about it. please?

Wallace said...

Make an Android version of it! I just got my Galaxy S3 and I think this would make an awesome game for it :P

zbuu said...

Your English is pretty good.Plus when this game comes out I'm going to slap penguins butts with my sword

HomesliceHobbes said...

Holy crap I am excited I want to play this sooooooooooo bad.

Grufil said...

I don't care if there's not beta, I would like pre-order button already. Pleasy Wollay, "shut up and take my money".

Willigator said...

Whats up with that penguin? o.o

Louis said...

WRONG there will be an alpha.

AmitHarpaz said...

Cool! :) Can't wait!!!

Isabella Urdaneta said...

We need information.

S4Red said...

Shut up and take my money!(Cit. Philip J. Fry)

BlondesGift said...

English:

I have a few questions:
What happens to the destroyed world? For example, if a monster destroys the ground. Stays it that way?
Is the multiplayer servers like, for example, the DayZ server? With a hive server?

Deutsch:

Ich habe ein paar Fragen:
Was passiert eigentlich mit der zerstörten Welt? Wenn zum Beispiel ein Monster den Boden kaputt macht. Bleibt es kaputt?
Wird der Multiplayer Server so wie zum Beispiel bei DayZ sein? Mit einem Hive Server?

ION_6 said...

Keep up the good work.

TheAverageMan said...

Just wanted to clarify something... THE MINI MAP AND OVERVIEW MAP IS FRICKING GORGOUS! That is all.

Zeb McNeil said...

The land that gets destroyed by monster attacks regenerates after you leave the area and come back, I think. It definitely comes back though.

Zeb McNeil said...

Penguins are cute. That's all that needs to be said.

roberto said...

I think if this game comes out before the end of the school year, this year I will be sent back :)

zVuzio said...

Wollay don't you think it will be difficult to stick to an objective/mission, when the map gets bigger and bigger the further you go? Please answer I really can't wait for this game!

itsDalez said...

Just... Just take my money :(

bloodworm12 said...

Wollay. I have question about player's character and worlds. Can you have one hero for multiple worlds, like in Terraria ?

DeadChim Chimi said...

lol "shut up and take my money!"

Zeb McNeil said...

He replied to this question earlier on this blog post and he said yes.

Quanros said...

How much it will cost when the game release ?

BipolarGrizzly said...

I know this will be a full release but are you going to update and add more content to continue this breathtaking game?

Anonymous said...

Please take my money. Random 3D world! Just take the money already.

Thomas Åhlén said...

My guess is 1 dollar for each voxel in the game and since the world is endless....

Totoplus62 said...

Amazing, next step: Weather ! ;P

Wwza7 said...

I hope so, if not we can just put our faith in modders. If wollay will upload source files or something (I'm bad in moding)

Wwza7 said...

Yea, but there is still so much to do! Weather, more epic quest (masive castle sedges!), Sky work (sky cities, etc.), this will be best game ever, if Wollay will still work for some time, say till february?

DaGAmer said...

Yes, he specifically stated that he would release updates occasionally.

xPoP said...

This game is going to be absolutely amazing. I can not wait, and I grow more and more impatient with every update. Keep it up, Wollay, because if you do, this could be my GOTY for any year it's released in.

Zeb McNeil said...

He said here: https://twitter.com/wol_lay/status/182115359116107777 that you won't be able to go to the clouds, so sky cities are also probably out of the question.

Oskar Emil Jacobsen said...

Wow! Wollay It's looking so good already! So, what do you need to finish now? The name, the main menu, a homepage, character creation what else?

P.S You are fucking AWESOME! (keep up the good work! (and the posts)

Skoots said...

This makes me sick.....
...with anticipation

Andrew Hewitt said...

Hey wollay,
You should create a field of depth system that blurs the distant, and of course make it so you can turn it on and off. Kinda like Borderlands 1+2 but keep the fade-out blue!

AustinMclEctro said...

I agree actually.
There are lots of old games kept alive nowadays from mods.

AustinMclEctro said...

You have the same first name as me. Win!

AustinMclEctro said...

Nice.

me said...

So, do you take soul as payable metod to get this game...?

Vladimir said...

Wolley, Wolley! There are so few animals on the screenshots. Is it done for the test only or will it be the same after the release? Seeing a forest full of life would be very nice in my opinion.

Eddie Lee said...

ooo, voxey lady

Neil Ziemba said...

ooooh yeah... this is gonna be good.

Neil Ziemba said...

there is not going to be alpha. this is not like minecraft

Talarot said...

no fair! let me play too!! ;_;

BrianRubin said...

OMG I MUST HAVE THIS GAME!

Sarah Login said...

Hills are great and all, but too many of them is just going to reduce visibility and make those epic vistas a little less epic. As long as you have some plains biomes it should be fine, but everything is hills the differences will be less profound.

OblivionFreak1 said...

My god. Would you hurry up and take my money already?! ALL my money. Leave me with my computer, your game, and a tent. I'll find a way to play it just gimme the game already. T.T

james said...

all i have to say is move over mojang, wollay's in town

james said...

i love the katana's for the assassin, will the assasin be able to go invisible :D

james said...

i just love the retroiness of the map

Artemy Smirnov said...

Hey, wollay, do not hurry to make a game that people want to see the
quality of the game, and for this we need time! Waiting for the new
news!

SamCube said...

I'm really impressed and mouth open with those scenic images. But that pop ups a question in my mind. The world "exterior" renders are really awesome and breath taken, but, how would be the dungeons? Will there just massive holes in the mountains? or will be like instances where you can see temples with columns, statues, ponds, bridges and all that kind of rpg style things?
So excited to here more news on this epic game.

Денис Лисаченко said...

I guess many peoples will be glad to see your personal TODO list, to know on what you're working right now. So is it possible to post it Wollay?
PS GW anyway :)

Kammy said...

yes and do jump stealth attacks

Dimosa said...

This game is going to kick ass, the world looks amazing!

Денис Лисаченко said...

There already was dungeon examples shown befor

Owon44 said...

This game is awesome !

beck mingy said...

B.. Beautiful!!!

Françis Boisvert said...

You should release an Alpha or beta soon, cause I fear that if you take too long to release the game, the cube/voxel hype will be gone for good and there won't be any more milk in the cow... Plus it will give you the funding you need to code this thing 40hours a week!

As long as you don't do like the terraria guy, he coded half a game and then ran away with the money

turtleboy said...

it's pay

Zeb McNeil said...

I would bet he turned down the mob spawn so he wouldn't have to deal with hostiles while looking for places to take these wonderful screenshots. That's just my guess I haven't seen him say that.

Zeb McNeil said...

There won't be an alpha but he said on his twitter that there will be a beta: https://twitter.com/wol_lay/status/264665716291141632 There's no exact release date though.

I'mHere! said...

That's Impressive!

Well, t's not as popular as Minecraft, that's for sure

*yet

Quote said...

I see what you did there.

Now let's hope Bethesda doesn't sue Wollay for using a word in the name that's in 'The Elder Scrolls'.

Like 'the'.

Garry's Mod o3o

You make me *vomits*

Agreed and up voted.

Antonio Shiryū said...

I think i speak for the whole community when i say " RELEASE DA BEAST ! RIGHT-NOW!

Bill Butler said...

The terrain looks great. The style is more exciting to me than some photo-realistic games. The way the land is dense with detail keeps me interested.

AdriexDoom said...

I absolutely love the landscapes but I am a little concerned there isn't much completely flat space. I think the mountain areas here would have a little more touch to it with more occasional flat spots down in the valley spaces. I'm kind of unsure about whether I like how much smoothing there is on the landscape too. I think it could use some more hard edges, and some tweaks to tone down the really high edgy look that blends over the hills and trees. It kind of makes the landscape sit in the same perspective as the trees. Just some constructive criticism anyhow. Seems critique comments tend to get disliked down to the bottom comments for saying something negative rather then just praising everything.

Nachtrae said...

Gorgeous. Truly wonderfully gorgeous! <3 I cannot wait to explore landscapes like these myself.

AdriexDoom said...

I would guess C+ at first though he just said the main page was being done with that.

NoName1 said...

Put this game on kickstarter right now

Adam Lienau said...

I think that is a good observation. I love the mountains, but some flat areas to mix it up a little would be good too.

Woop said...

I can't wait more time.

dasher said...

Please dont let me suffer longer..... RELEASE IT D:

james said...

This would be really great to know haha. because my pc struggles to run certain games e.g. i cant run minecraft with far render and smooth lighting and fancy graphics

Jgang said...

Yeah Wollay when can we start throwing our money at you?

Dann said...

When you say that "the player can go into other worlds" does this mean that you will be running a server to store everyone's avatars or will it all be stored in the client? also will you be releasing software to create these other worlds that players will be able to visit?

AdriexDoom said...

I recall him saying something about there being no modding in the future, or at least that he wouldn't be making any sort of api. If anything I am sure that Some person may get around some way for modding in the future but I don't see it becoming big for this.

Belgariad87 said...

this game feels right. well done.

SullivanGrave said...

Wollay, I don't know if you'll notice this, but i'll say.

Overall game design, world generation is beautiful, but you need to make something with lighting. This smoothed out light makes landscape look dirty, from any range and any angle. Shadows on upper layers should be lighter, then it would look less... cubic. At close range, yeah, it looks pretty, but firther you look, the worse it gets. Brighter landscape would make game look more "realistic" and won't make an accent on fact game made on voxels.

wollay said...

There are plenty of flat areas between mountains which I haven't photographed. You can see them on the world map screenshots.

Austin Ghelli said...

Seriously wollay. think about it. penguin pets = WIN

Kortigus said...

Hes a ninja

Kortigus said...

Wollay since your having bluebrints for building, would you be able to flatten the landscape for buildings? or maybe the blueprints themselves flatten the land? or do you just have to find the flattest area to build your house?

uglybad said...

My face the WHOLE time I was looking at these photos:
:O "So beautiful...

AdriexDoom said...

I would say it is more likely to run this well even if you can't do minecraft very fast. I bought a laptop that's pretty upper mid level and I can play Skyrim on almost full graphics with mods at a decent rate. However I can't play minecraft at full render distance totally smooth. To make short of it- Minecraft was programmed on unstable roots, and is a heavy process game made with java. Java is not what I would consider top of the line gaming program. This being C++, I would expect much better performance. If not a little more reliable.

AdriexDoom said...

Yeah I was hoping so :P I looked over some of those maps but didn't catch the flat parts. I am not entirely keen on the high cube number for smoothing those mountains though, but it does all still look very nice.

Banana said...

awesome...have you decided a price yet? $10? -$20?

james said...

minecrafts been around for 3 years of course it will be more popular

james said...

yay

james said...

wollay said he likes the idea, for funding for the main game, ofcourse that dosnt mean there will be an alpha, but he never said there definitely wont

James Tyler said...

If 50,000 people buy it he will have a million dollars ( Assuming that he sells it for $20 dollars)

Anonymous said...

OK, seriously, when can we expect the game?

Anonymous said...

cool! but where is the detailed class information?!?

Teebai said...

I would easily pay 80$ for this game

Daniel said...

Thanks for your opinion :) hopefully you are right :p


Wollay, the game looks great keep up the good work !

Someone said...

I never saw the "hangglider" thing... it looks really nice :o

Zeb McNeil said...

There is a video of them here: http://wollay.blogspot.com/2012/09/new-cube-world-video.html Just in case you haven't seen it already.

david pucko said...

this looks wonderful!

gabriel295 said...

wollay will release in Portuguese, because I am Brazilian and I am not the only one who likes his game here, even has a blog for Brazilian accompanying the cube world

Dan said...

How much money do you think game is going to be?


Awesome looking by the way!!!

BingoWasHisNamo said...

In the screenshots, it's ninja, not assassin. Just felt like I had to put that there..

DeathWorld said...

Yeah, but 50.000 is very small amount. I think, it will be over 100.000 people at first

Morten Dueholm said...

Will you soon be able to tell us approximately when you expect the game to be released? Whether it's before Christmas or in ½ year (or even later?) :)

Aekely said...

Man, the exploration in this game will be just great! I can't wait to see many enormous and awesome landscapes within the game. Just looking at these pictures get me excited. This could be considered an art in my mind.

Snuffyz said...

its just so beautiful :')

Tissuetim64 said...

How will pets travel if you use a hang glider? Just a question.

hoborg98 said...

I love the world map idea. You can really see the world expand as you explore it. Can't wait to see it finished!

Ben Jack said...

Sorry if you don't like people comparing cube World to Minecraft but will it have a endless world generator similar to Minecraft?

Zeb McNeil said...

Minecraft actually experiences problems after you generate a world 8 times the size of earth. According to Wollay, this game will have infinite world generation and infinite levels.

Yelko Burger said...

ALL OF MY MONEY. WHEN WILL I BE ABLE TO GIVE YOU ALL OF MY MONEY?

AmitHarpaz said...

Good question... I hope the walls will be flexible, I mean, because CW gen is not as drastic as other cube based games the walls will be able to "see" the terrain and move down 1 or 2 blocks... and not reck the terrain in the process...

Nivius said...

so, HOW are you going to sell it? Steam(like FTL)? site only(like Minecraft)

lol said...

hey, say minimal requisites please

Unknown said...

OVER 9000!!!!

Dimentio said...

Hey you know what bathing in millions of 100 dollar bills feels like? You will as soon as you release this game

AustinMclEctro said...

Good question..
I'm assuming they just pack up in your inventory or something

Lisha777 said...

I feel so exited I feel like screaming!!!
I think this will become more popular than Minecraft!
I think its going to become my new fave game to!
(My fave game now is Minecraft :P)

Lisha777 said...

Sorry I don't know how to edit my old post :P
But I just want to say the landscape looks AMAZING!
I like the look of the forests and mountains best! And I just CAN NOT wait till I get to hang glide... Please release this amazing game soon!

margor22 said...

it would be really cool if you could have forearm blades!!! :D

Austin Ghelli said...

I already am but i haven't got the game yet =p

Adam Taylor said...

I definitely hope he does a process similar to Minecraft.


For one, it's great to have that early funding to help the project. For another, it will let people see how amazing the game is and help build popularity.


Minecraft started small, a little unknown project that a few people enjoyed. Word of mouth built and built until it became the multimillion dollar cash cow it is today.


Cube World (or whatever it ends up being called) can be the same if they use the same system.

sound975waves said...

The new features look great particularly the new 3D world map

DaGamer said...

Wollay could you please release this game already?? I don't have any game to play right now and I'm dying of anticipation.

David Burrus said...

will it be for mac too?

David Burrus said...

NAME IT FAR! It sounds like a good name for this, opening on FAR
