Anyone else been playing this? Or rather, anyone manage to purchase it through the server problems? And if you haven't heard of it, here's a video from the creator: Been playing it with a couple friends and am fairly impressed. At first glance most people's first thoughts will likely be "how is it different or better than Minecraft?" but can fairly safely say this is a different game. Beyond the initial visual similarities of the infinitely generated block-based "voxel" world the similarities start fading with the focus of Cube World leaning more strongly towards adventure RPG than sandbox. There's no construction involved, no building houses and tunnelling around. The focus is on combat, and exploration. Players can choose from four different classes with unique combat abilities, level up, get better equipment, and learn new skills. The world is full of more varied and combat-capable enemies with bosses all over. All items must be looted from enemies, crafted with items found by exploring, or purchased from shops. Different regions have different appearances and enemies. Features like ridable pets, boats, hang gliders and climbing make exploration and travel enjoyable. As the first release version it's got plenty of room for improvement, but I've really been surprised so far. There are areas where content is lacking but it's apparent that these are areas which will be impoved, such as class skill trees. There are plenty of odd bugs and glitches but again, to be expected. Time will tell just how quickly these things get impoved and taken care of, fairly important when considering buying a game in alpha. As to be expected with a colorful game that lacks any clear goal or end state, the let's play crowd is already latching on so if you're into having someone laugh and scream endlessly while poorly playing games there are quite a few videos out there with some pre-release closed alpha gameplay and post-release gameplay to learn more.
