A player with a mage character runs through the game.
Players can create multiple characters, with character creation, which involves the player first choosing a race then customizing the look of the character. The player then chooses one of four classes: warrior, rogue, ranger, or mage. The world is populated with monsters and creatures which can be killed for experience, which results in stronger statistics and abilities and allows players to choose specializations which best suit their in-game aims. These specialization choices include warriors being able to choose between focusing on damage or defensive abilities, or mages focusing on damage or healing abilities. Players can also tame animals, such as sheep or turtles, which fight alongside them, or, in some cases, can be ridden by them to travel more quickly.
Crafting is also a part of the game; it allows players to create food, potions, weapons, and armor, as well as modify their existing weapons block by block in order to create aesthetically unique weapons.
In January 2012, it was reported that Minecraft creators Mojang had hired Wolfram in order to help support him in developing Cube World; however, it was later stated that this was not the case. In July 2014, the developers previewed a new questing system for the game, which will focus on the player’s exploration.
Early alpha release
Following the initial release, Cube World has received only one update. After three months of no other updates or contact from the developers many players began to become concerned about further development of the game. In October 2013, Wollay confirmed that the game was still being worked on, and that a new update was “coming along nicely”. This update was previewed in July 2014, but has not yet been released. In July 2015, after a year of silence from the developer, gaming blog Kotaku reported that Wolfram was still working on the game. About the lack of information on the development of the game, Wolfram was quoted as saying: “I’m not posting ‘hey, we’re still here’ because that’s beyond all question – Cube World is my passion project and I will work on it until it’s finished.”
