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:
  • Fully procedurally generated worlds. Every game looks and plays different.
  • 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.
  • Electricity. Add electric networks to your buildings to control lights and other components.
  • Water. Add water networks to supply generators and control water components.

Early Access Review
i find this game lacking of an experience. it seems rather more like a poorly coded game engine in its test phase rather than a actual game

and it does appear to be stalled in development.
further more the controlls are obscure and the game seems somewhat lacking when it comes to character design aswell

so my conclusion is that you should not buy this game. atleast not now.

do not buy this game. at least not now, its an unfinished mess and there has been no update since the jurassic era. sure it pretty and all that. but unless you playing on a quantum computer the game is unplayebel. and even tho he (yes theres only one guy making this now) is working on an OPTION (stop going nuts over the unrealistic ness of the next verion people) i atleast cant walk more thant a few feet before the game uses half a pluto year before it finds you and you can build. and even when the game knows were you are in the world, it uses the rest of plutos year form you click the mouse till the block appears. unless the dev fixes all the ♥♥♥♥ that kill the game. do not buy it.

Early Access Review
Phenomenally good game. Absolutely amazing, realistic landscape and the ability to create extremely high detail structures. Why wouldn't I recommend it you ask? because not only has the developer continued to work on the game completely solo (resulting in about 6 months of no updates, he has now also decided to completely change the game from the smooth and realistic perfection that it was, to a fully block-based game that just looks like an uglier version of minecraft. Apparently this is because lego is his passion or some rubbish like that. I guess he must really like his lego if he's prepared to lose the 95% of players who bought the game because of it's realism... oh and then watch his "passion" dissolve into nothing because he set himself up to compete with minecraft.

If you couldn't tell I (like many others) am rather unhappy about this. I spent 50 hours in game on one project which is now going to be ruined.

Early Access Review
Do not buy this game it is a waste of money, and no longer looks how it does in the screenshots/video


1) Single developer - One person working on this game
2) more bugs than an ant hill
3) No updates in forever
4) Developer wanted to "get back to his roots" and his inspiration for the game which was "Lego" so he's changed the entire look of this game to look like somthing closer to mine craft. I.E he bit off more than he could chew and took the easy route.

5) Crashes a lot.

Basically paid for something I will never get, not because of time constraints but because the dev changed the entire thing, I feel robbed.

Beware the false advertising/misleading screenshots.

They are changing the way the game looks, it will be a Minecraft clone now. If you're interested due to the graphics, then I suggest moving along since it will be more-or-less dropped from the game. (It will still be around, but Dev is focusing on lego/block/Minecraft Clone style.

From the DevLog:
"The last 7 months has been a long fight to find the heart of Blockscape again. The good news is that I finally found it. I just had to throw away the clay and focus on the lego."

Smooth voxels may be gone but smooth surfaces are still here. And because everything is a block the result is better.

Because the Blockscape world is exclusively made out of blocks no tools that operate on smooth data/surfaces will be available.
