What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I believe that the best game will be created together with the people who are playing the game. I also believe that the time is right. Over the past year the development have shifted more and more from engine and graphics programming to gameplay mechanics and content. Now is a fun time for you to play the game and take part in the development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“A year is a good guess. After that development will go on as usual and I will continue to do regular updates and DLCs.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“There are many ways to play but the main game is the "start with nothing and build an empire". This is already possible in the Early access version. The full version will add challenge in the form of hostile mobs that will try to stop you. It will also add more content like better/more building tools, block types, materials, biomes, mobs and items.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In its current state the game offers countless of hours of fun and has infinite replay value. You can play the game or build whatever you want in the "Just Build" mode. The game is very stable. Current savegames will be compatible with future versions.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The full game will be priced a bit higher then the Early Access version.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The development process has been very open for years. I release new updates at a steady rate. I often ask questions to the community and take part in discussions and the feedback I get is of high value for me.”

About This Game

!!! This game is in Early Access which means it is not finished. It really is the best block building game but please understand that there will be missing features and bugs. No updates means I'm working very hard. This is the project of my life, I will never abandon it. !!!



Start with nothing and build an empire. Blockscape is the ultimate block building game.

You are sent to this world to start a new civilization. Explore, gather materials, craft and build.
Build beds and people will move in. Give them food and they will do work for you.

Main features:

  • Play the game you want. Blockscape can be played like a survival game, rpg (not available yet), tower defence (not available yet) or like an empire building game. The type of gameplay is based on what you create or do in the game.
  • Crafting. Create furniture, tools, weapons, armor, materials and more.
  • NPCs. Create beds and people will move in to your buildings. Give them food and they will do work (crafting, planting, harvesting, construction).
  • Hundreds of block types and materials.
  • Everything is a block. Everything in your inventory can also be used as a building block. Even mobs.

Early Access Review
I tried to play this after forgetting I had purchased it two years ago.
It's definitely in need of some love and care from its developer. Walking on a beach was nausea-inducing, thanks to a constant bouncing tremor. It was even worse when I tried walking up the gentle hill next to it.
The placement mechanics were a bit screwy, when I went to put down wood, dirt, and so on.
It only felt slightly different from when I first tried it two years ago.

Here's hoping that the author doesn't pull an Ugly Baby, and comes back to work on it.

Had hope for this game, what has happened?

- No updates for over a year now.
- No actual communication except for his twitter page which does virtually no good for someone who despises social media.
- broken as all hell.
- 1 single dev, dude. Get help, this is a big project your taking on dealing with other peoples money.

Basically shovelware at this point, I gave it a shot. Took the risk. Now you don't have too.
It's totally abandoned it seems. He showed pictures of "Newest Release" that was 3 months ago and we got nothing resembling an update since then.

Waste of money doesn't seem that they are getting any work done on the problem of bugs like: Falling through the ground, having to wait several minutes for the world to load so you can even do anything. The even worst part about it is that there is absolutely no guide or wiki for it. In my opinion this game is bad waste of twenty dollars, untill it gets help fixing the bugs. But don't get me wrong the scenery and sounds are awesome, but the NPCs are over complicated and every time you want them to do something you need to give them a friendly tap on their face. And don't get me started on how much it takes to run the game, I have a brand new Toshiba laptop and it still is lagging every step.

Early Access Review
This game showed a lot of promise but it ended up being a huge disappointment. The game is too broken to really enjoy at this stage more than just walking around and building a very small amount of stuff, but even walking tends to overload this game it just cant keep up. This wouldn't be a problem if i knew this game was being worked on but honestly its been almost a year since it came on steam and there has been no updates except a few pictures that actually show a downgrade in the quality of this game. If the game would have looked like the blocky pictures being shown now i never would have purchased it. As it is i really regret spending money on this game. Hopefully one day it will turn out to be a great game and if that ever does happen i will edit this review, but as of now i wouldn't recommend it.

I cannot play at the current moment, it crashes WAY too many times. Also takes too long to load other areas of a world, and I get stuck because I cannot walk anywhere.
Until I am actually able to play this game properly, I do not recommend this game to anybody. Hopefully it will get better though! It looked like a promising game!
