THIS IS THE BEST GAME I'VE PLAYED EVER! BETTER THAN SPELUNKY. Anyway, just make it an MMO and it will be awesome. Like a singeplayer and multiplayer and saving your buildings would be awesome Coffee

Infiniminer is definitely harming itself by limiting how much we can build upwards. Creating huge towers and castles is so much fun.

Looking good, keep up the good work Beer!

Well, when an alpha keeps drawing me back to play it, you know you've got something good. I can't wait to see what this game becomes.

And Evil-Ville, what is that thing inside your temple? A tree of some sort?

It's fun, but you'll definitely need more block types, and such. If you really want to go a DF path with it, go all the way and make it pretty much 3d DF where you and other players are the dwarfs. It doesn't have to be as complicated though, just maybe when you have some simple stats, a couple different classes to pick from(and change to mid game), and make it so you have to chop trees and mine rocks to make things. And then add some baddies that you have to defend against.

As it is right now though, it's fun but it doesn't really have much substance to it.

Would you really want to be the player who has to hack away at trees all the time just so that other players can build cool stuff?

The fun in this game clearly is in building; it's a bit like a huge virtual box of Lego. I don't think that forcing players to do other things would help the game at all.

We need a way to save our levels  Mock Anger but other than that I am so addicted. I already built a huge castle on the mountain.

I really like this, you don't have to download any XNA related stuff so it's already better than Infiniminer. Would it be too much of an ask for some half-height blocks to create staircases that you can walk up instead of having to jump everywhere? Or a retexture tool so we can repaint blocks instead of deleting them, selecting another block type and pasting it in. It would greatly speed up construction of underground superbases.

I made a castle! Normally it would be night and there would be lightning, but alas, those things do not exist.

My friend tried to make a pirate ship, but it was too fail to post.

Yeah, I could never get infiniminer to run right. But when it did, it was terrible to find a server to play on, and when you finally did, it was usually full of idiots that would blow your stuff up. This definitely beats it in that aspect.

Finding caves is really fun ... it'd be great if a game like this could pull geometry that other players create into my world; I'd love to play around in some of the places that people have posted screenshots of Smiley

Maybe you didn't read the part about survival mode and creative mode.

I love this game. It's awesome!
Things to add that you're probably gonna do:
More block variation
SAVE!
Doodads? (like, trees, crystals, furniture, etc.)
Different types of 'mobs'
Slopes/steps?
and multiplayer with chat for this game would be so awesome, but you were going for that already I assume.

Keep up the good work!  Gentleman
