Reviews

“The most randomly awesome game I've played in a while”
MMORPG.com

“... generation upon generation of user-made structures dot the landscape, and oversized shapes and enigmatic letters mystify like Nazca lines. It feels free, like playing with Legos as kid. You have agency. There are all sorts of weird ways to play. You can transform into a zombie if you want, try and spread a plague, mix things up. Oh, and beware of LawyerCats. They’re out for blood.”
Indie Statik

“... this is a must play”

Features


100% Player Built World - The entire world is built by players. Build your own house, town, voxelart, or dungeon. The world is massive -- there's plenty of space to build in, and it streams in as you explore (no load screens).

Be the Mayor - Start your own town and invite your friends. You'll have an array of management tools for overseeing your town.

Interactive Development - The entire game only has one full-time developer, and development is still ongoing. You can submit and vote on ideas -- many of the top voted ideas have been implemented into the game. Free updates with new content and features are frequently released.

Anti-Griefing Systems - Several systems protect players from griefing.

Free To Play - No purchase necessary to have fun. Support the developer and buy a fancy hat... or don't. (Premium items give NO competitive advantage)

Customize your Character - Wear hats, clothing, accessories, change your skin color

Become a Zombie - Want to be a zombie? You can! But you'll need a steady supply of delicious brains from other players. Don't worry, after you eat their brain, they'll be zombies too!

Fight Nefarious Enemies - Congressional Lobbyist Slugs, LawyerCats, and Hipsters oh my.

MegaMap - The world is huge, so the MegaMap interface (based on Google Maps API) is a handy way to browse the world and share your creations with friends.

Music - Enjoy chiptune from legendary artists Danimal Cannon, Zef, PROTODOME, and Honin Myo Audio.

It's not fun, repetitive, and tries to be a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ F2P 2D version of Minecraft. The whole style is quite ugly and it's a real pain when it comes to platforming since it's really hard to know if you're getting higher or just moving diagonally.

I downloaded this game(against my better judgement) and found what i believe to be a game with a great concept that fell flat on its face because of its stupid devs. Even though I saw all the nasty, and concerning warnings NOT to get this game, I did so. Just a few minutes of gameplay showed that its community is DEAD, with no players (from my experience) the dev thinks he's funny, but really is an ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. Even the controls and building/fighting system is confusing and broken, as my attempt to build a simple wall was confusing enough to make me want to quit. This game is only recomended for those who want to just cry because of how bad and quiet and terrible the "community" is.
