Check out Cube World’s launch trailer as it officially hits closed beta on Steam

It’s here, it’s here – Cube World has officially hit closed beta on Steam! As we noted last week, the game’s original developer resurfaced in September to say he was really truly launching this time after six years of alpha puttering and long absences. Closed beta rolled out to existing owners yesterday; you’ll need your ancient Picroma account info because you’ll need to use that to collect your Steam key, apply it to your account, and log in. I tested that this week and even logged into the game this morning. Works like a charm!

Today’s update fixes multiple floating and station crashes and the ocean markers, plus tweaks the minimap (there’s a minimap!), spawn location, and wall jumping. Picroma’s Wolfram von Funck has also been posting tips on Twitter, like use F1 to show character controls, F2 and F3 resize the GUI, and make sure to use the flight master to hop to your mates for free in multiplayer.

Official Steam early access launch is still set for September 30th. There’s a brand-new trailer up; check it out below!

sadly some folks are acting super hurt the game is back and trying to find the most rediculous and bizarre “misdeeds” to hate on wollay for some contrived reason or another. while weirdly trying to minimize that the guy was harassed pretty solidly.

i’m tired of this.

i took a stroll in game for 20 minutes yesterday. it’s as incredibly dificult mob dificulty wise as i recall. had a bit of an adventure trying to find the bits of the quest i was presented in town. found the poor gnome i was looking for strapped to a table in the middle of a forest. could not find the key to free him.

the whole gameplay loop is totally different, mobs dont give exp, skill trees are gone, most items dont stick with you when crossing into a new biome, etc.

yes variations of this same set of complaints have been spammed relentlessly whereever the game is mentioned.

he’s talked numerous times of not finding the gameplay and progression loops fun as he develops and iterated during development.

as well one of the most visible complaints was “there’s nothing there… no content no gameplay loops no quests” .

but sorry yall cant flip seeds every 2 minutes to exp and gear up while making the game as tedious and unfun as possible for anyone yall drag along with yas like 6 years ago. qq

its almost as if this is somethinghe talked about developing specifically. weird.

He didn’t communicate with the people that played the alpha much, or at all. To say in detail what the changes were compared to it.
Everyone that liked the alpha expected it to be a more improved version of it.
Instead, he removed everything that made the game fun for us.
A lot of useless restrictions and changes that were not needed.
Of course people are angry, they looked forward to play the game with new content. Not start over from scratch every zone you enter. That’s a huge waste of time.

No skill trees, be it active or passive skills.
No XP leveling.
Gear and items disappear when entering a new zone, which includes mounts, boats, gliders and climbing gear. Leaving you literally swimming when you cross a border on the sea.
Or completely gearles when fighting enemies and crossing a border.

you speak for everyone?

i didn’t find grinding the same best in seed spawns for exp and drops fun. that’s just me. ymmv.

i keep seeing this stuff reposted endlesslessy and… it’s tiring.

and most of all i don’t care. and neither should wollay. your complaints sound just as hollow and empty as they are. with every indication within them that you took negative effort to pay attention to what wollay has been communicating for years now.

also you clearly have put zero effort into finding out what the new gameplay loops are with pastarino like this.

edit: also i’m sorry but if you were ever under the impression that wollay wasn’t doing this game as he persoanlly sees fit and hadn’t figured that out by now than that’s on you hombre. it was a $20 game six years ago that for most people who bought it provided ample cost value ratio at that point alone. stay mad bitches.

Look at you getting all defensive and salty when someone insults your precious game XD.
Have you even paid attention to Reddit and steam forums? Clearly you just want to kid yourself into liking it after all these years you possibly played the alpha version.
The majority of people hate it. Frankly, i can’t wait for the release date to see the reviews turn red.
Even small impression reviews on youtube had mostly negative views about it.
This new version is not fun in the slightest, forcing you to start over every new area you enter is literally making a new character and start fresh.
And don’t worry, you’ll see everything unfold on the release day.
Let’s see how much you can try and defend this new version when everyone can play it.

>Have you even paid attention to Reddit and steam forums?

reddit and steam forums doesn’t determine my opinion on a game. but yes i have seen the above copy pastas on reddit already.

stay mad.

(i also haven’t shared my opinion on the new version at all… lol other than i spent 20 minutes having a bit of an adventure in it and it’s still just as dificult as i remember)

Oh, don’t worry. I’m not trying to change your opinion in the slightest. The same way you can’t change mine.
You keep being you in your own lovable way. =D
Either way, we’ll see how this unfolds after it releases for everybody.

What’s really tiring is your ridiculous white-knighting of a guy who straight abandon his project for six years. I expect the reaction most people are having; I don’t understand yours.

it was a $20 game that was worth $20 by any measure of $20 games.

six years ago.

which clearly he didn’t abandon it since it’s launching. he just disinvited everyone from the early access he had going for it briefly.

beyond that, i don’t care about your reaction pasta. go paste it somewhere else.

The pasta, is all in your head, man. You’re projecting the pasta, through your nonsensical vomit.

I believe that’s Wollay and his wife Sarah playing their characters for the trailer. Not going to lie, seeing them play together makes me like them and the game even more, and despise those that were so nasty to them to an ever greater degree.

It had actually fallen off my Radar for awhile there, only seeing the old shortcut on my desktop reminded me that it was still a thing until recently. I hope it sells extremely well for them.
