Adorable retro sandbox Staxel has officially launched today with a huge update too


We’ve been covering the supercute voxelbox Staxel for the last year of early access, so what a joy to get to say that it’s actually formally launched as of today. I’m extra happy to look at my Steam account and remember I already bought it and should probably log in. Yay!

The game is reminiscent of Stardew Valley, in a 3-D voxel setting, with construction, hunting, farming, shopping, and questing, and while it’s not a traditional MMORPG, you can play multiplayer just fine.

Coinciding with the launch is a huge day-one patch updating magic crafting, adding new friend NPCs and pets, implementing in-game mail, kicking off new festivals, padding the in-game calendar, and opening new zones. Oh, and if you hate jumping puzzles, definitely don’t go into the Arcade mode!

So this is basically minecraft, where they swapped out combat for much improved farming?

Pretty close. It’s a little more focused. There are quests to do, like building houses for new villagers, and making new buildings in town like a museum. But overall it’s a pretty chill game.

(Also, I think I remember reading that their props artist is the woman who made the DecoPlus mod for Minecraft).

I’ve seen this one around before. I like the retro graphics a lot and voxel games tend to have some appeal for me as well. May have to give it a try.


I got np trying games with cutish graphs(example Dofus) but I dont like it when its both cute and voxel – its the main reason I never tried Trove. I dont say these games are bad, they just arent clicking with me.

Nevertheless its good to see there is a variety of sandbox mmo games for everyone out there and from what I understand it will have good features
