Cube World open Alpha

Postby CommanderCody » Mon Jul 15, 2013 11:11 am

The last few days I've found a great new game named Cube World
This game was development by a german (Wollay) and his wife in 2 years and now finally ready for public.

It's in alpha stage but can offer a lot of content like bosses, random dungeons, classes, races and
random items!
I think this game could be a children of Minecraft, Zelda and Diablo etc. (but in a good way :yes: )

Here is the official website with some informations about the ingame content.
https://picroma.com/cubeworld

- The Alpha costs 15€ or 20$
- You can download a tech-demo, when the demo starts, your pc will be able to play this game
- really, buy it! :wink:

Tell me what you think about this game :D

It's a pretty game and a fun concept, but boy are the bosses grindy. I don't care much for simply making the bosses "how long can you repeat the same pattern over and over and over" - after I've done it twenty or so times, I feel like I've earned the win. Past that, I'm just wasting my time. The rest of the game is fun, though. If you want to hop on a server and play, let me know.

The single/mp client is handled through the game itself. The game download is handled through the developer's site (https://picroma.com/buycubeworld).

@Maveritchell Oh yeah the bosses are really...ya well bosses :)
But the dungeons are freaky hard too :wink:
That's a good idea with the server, will you make one
or should I make?

It's really fun I played last night I have a low level ranger but usually live about 9 minutes lol. I get killed by things like ogres instantly and random puppies keep piling on and beating me down. Love the looting and stuff just need a mount and to try mp. Good job finding this game, now I can finally turn off the xbox live game "state of decay"

State of Decay is pretty good. Not as good as it could have been, but pretty good. It's somewhere inbetween The Walking Dead, Left 4 Dead, and DayZ. This is a good thing.

State of decay is great but can feel repetitive on missions, once you run out of resources like ammo and food your essentially game over but it's the most fun trying to survive after a zombie apocalypse I've ever seen!

Today I'm setting up a server to try LAN cube world play, I think ill need the gf to help just to get tough enought to beat ogres. I wish I never tried memory hacking on this game I ruins the game instantly when you hit 5000 level lol. Restarting character without hacking now

Once you get up to nearly 2000 (~1910), you've effectively reached the cap, even though there is no solid level cap. Leveling is an exercise in diminishing returns.

Here I have some tips for beginners:
- Enemys with white names are easy, blue names are good but beatable, orange names are strong
but less good than red names. Red name enemys can kick your Diet Dr. Pepper!

- You will find pet-food like chocolate bars or such to tame some animals!
You will have to find out which enemy what eats! You can also tame agressive mobs like hornets!

- click F1 for help

- In citys you customize your current weapon! But you need the right cubes for it!
Wood cubes to customize bows/crossbows and staffs
Iron cubes to customize swords, axes, shields and maces
- Go into an Inn to change night time to morning
- In citys you can get missions, ok there are not really missions but that person will mark a
dungeon on you map!
- You will get the best weapons and armors at dungeons or from bosses!
- You need to skill sailing, hangliding and mounting to use them (and a boat/hanglider/pet to!)

I hope this was helpful :) have fun!

Good info thx. I have no pet yet still looking for a seed with parrots. I did find a castle that's a blast even at level 2. I just kite blue mobs by running backwards or pulling them into other npc players who do the work and I get free loot. My seed is 2 lol

I don't know of any parrot seeds, but hop into 416666148 - it has really good lamps available in the first town's shop. There are also turtle spawns nearby (turtles are the only pets that can really tank for you) and caves with a handful of emerald nodes.

Ill check that tonight I'm level 3 with a level 2 alpaca haha. Found a pile of emeralds , a giant purple named mob I'm guessing that's legendary all I know is it one hit killed me and took no dmg from me. It was a Giant screen size peacock. I just got done playing a gig and ready to grind out some castle and caves.

Odd things today a defeat the troll quest spawned and the mob never appeared at location weird then few minutes later the option on map to kill it went away, despawn?

I can't seem to find sny decent fear from level 2-10 power. Upgrading with wood on my beginner tank weapons kinda blows.

We should get a gt cube going I'd play in it daily.

It's a pretty game, I bought it sometime last week. I'm pretty terrible at RPGs though so I couldn't figure out what the heck I was doing.

I've been going on dedicated servers and killing hard mobs then leveling, just got a boat and hanglider. This game will eventually be the new mine craft
