I have only delved into it a bit, but so far it is fun and I see ALOT of potential.
You dont use a pickaxe or shovel, but rather magic (through your hand) to dig/place blocks. I believe they will eventually allow you to craft items of power that will go on your character (like an rpg) that will allow you to "dig" faster, etc. It certainly looks like it has the potential to use magic on enemies (whenever enemies are introduced) instead of a sword or blaster. I personally like this and have not seen a sandbox crafting game that really allows magic as its main formula.
The game also allows "Quality Crafting" So instead of getting that iron bar (like Minecraft) every single time, you get one of three options: iron bar, superb iron bar, or exceptional iron bar (I forget the exact names and the higher the quality the less of a chance you will get one). This also works with blocks as well. So when you are crafting marble blocks from raw marble you are going to get 3 different kinds of marble, each with their own color and look. A higher quality block will look like it has more blocks that compose it so you get a greater quality of detail when you get the rarer items.
The potential is mind-blowing when you consider all the unique items you can get. The amount of detail will be unsurpassed, I believe.
Also there are adorable flying baby sheep that you can harvest wool from. What's not to love?
If you don't want to buy it right away, definately keep an eye on it! It should be a great building game!
