We I first played the demo I though It was a copy of minecraft and I threw it down in mock disgust. Then the next day I gave it a try and bought the full game the next hour. So if anyone thinks this game is a copy of minecraft play it.

Hows this for a review on amazon for block story.

Maybe if we put in amazon

Maybe if we put in amazon pictures of the crystal sword + shield, the car and the colored lights, people might think twice about calling it a minecraft rip off.

Colored lights for sure.

Colored lights for sure. Block Story is A LOT prettier than what I've seen of Minecraft.

Skyrim is fun but this game is like a mixture of skyrim and mc
Maybe if we put a video like the one that's in amazon of the castle with blue floors
And then when someone opened up the demo version for the first time it would play that video then I guarantee thyell think twice

To the best of my knowledge,

To the best of my knowledge, they have only done 1 update in 3 1/2 months, and the changelog was tiny, they essentially only added furnaces.

Are they going to pick up the pace now?

they already added an update after that one

it now has skeletons, spiders, bonemeal, bows, mob drops and some fixes to the game. there has been tweets about them adding more stuff when it is updated to 0.4.0. it has been a 1 month and a half at the most but i think it was updated in less than a month.

The pace of which Mojang

The pace of which Mojang implemenedt features into Minecraft PE has dramatically increased after they added another coder not too long ago.

Good for them. They seemed to stall there for a while.

How about we change it from "That game that shall not be named " to "That game that should not be named lest you be devoured by Mr Giggles ". Laughing

Giggles are to Block Story as Metroids are to Metroid.

minecraft

Hi
Block story is a game that is Both highly versatile and expansive in its design. Mine craft has a very long way to go to get anywhere close to block story. Keep up the great work. Your game is visionary in its implementation!!

Caves are hard

It took me weeks to figure out a good way to make caves. I wanted long tunnels that resembled an ant hill. Perlin noise just gave me bubbles, not tunnels. I did prototype after prototype, some were to slow, some didn't look right.

I had no experience with procedural terrain or game development for that matter.

But being Mojang, you would think they would have them in MPE already.

Heck, try seed Genosha,

Heck, try seed Genosha, (like that) there is a straight cave to Moria along the left of starting beach and a larger cave system up the mountain behind you with some paths to it. The cave is pretty rich in some vains. The mountain that is.Oh ya, I nominate for the halloween contest Balrog because it makes me feel like Gandalf, its scaryer than heck, and mysterious. Only found a natural one once.< /p>

Cave Generation Is Great

Paul, the cave generation in BlockStory is great. Whatever algorithm you hit on is doing wonderful things.

I hope to post some more pictures soon. I found a neat "sink hole" recently. It had the surface biome in it, even though it looked like a cave at first glance. Another example of the surprising diversity of BlockStory.
