1.9.7.8 is now live: Teleport Station bug fix

This is a quick fix to repair worlds where teleport stations were changed into monster blocks. It will update existing worlds automatically by returning teleport stations to their original behavior and appearance.

Beta 1.9.7.8 - A small but important fix for teleport stations.

Some players found previously placed teleport stations were disappointingly converted into monster spawners.

This patch fixes that by returning them to their true state. All blocks that were originally teleport stations before patch 1.9.7.7 will again work as expected. Your saved worlds should be automatically repaired when you next load them.

No other blocks should be affected in any way. We're going to keep this as a beta build for a couple days to validate the fix.

Let us know if you experience any issues with the Beta build!

Thank you to those that reported this issue. We appreciate your help and understanding!

About This Game

CastleMiner Z is an online coop survival horror game in a block based environment. Travel with your friends in a huge, ever-changing world and craft modern weapons to defend yourself from dragons and the zombie horde!

Game Play

CastleMiner Z is an infinite world filled with deep places to explore, and horrifying monsters to slay. Build structures out of blocks, craft weapons and tools from raw materials, and explore the vast and frightening world around you.

Play by yourself or online with friends in any of these exciting game modes:

  • Endurance Mode: There are tales of a place beyond the mountains where Hell itself has torn through. How far can you get before you succumb to the zombies, dragons, skeletons, or other enemies that thirst for your blood? Run, fight, and sneak your way across dry deserts, snowy mountains, and icy expanses on your quest to vanquish the ultimate guardians of the abyss. In Endurance Mode, the world is randomized each game and the death of your party is permanent.
  • Survival Mode: If you enjoy Endurance, but would rather build permanent structures and defenses, Survival Mode is where you’ll spend your time.
  • Creative Mode: With simplified crafting and the ability to adjust or eliminate the enemy threat, Creative Mode is a great place to build vast structures in peace.
  • Dragon Survival Mode: For those who like their trophies big and their hair singed and smoking, Dragon Survival Mode brings you up close and personal with wave after wave of the biggest, meanest, scaliest brutes in the game.

Worlds can be saved in any game mode (except endurance) so try building a castle with enemies turned off, then grabbing some friends and loading it up with enemies turned on!

I like this game, I played it a whole bunch on Xbox 360. It has improved a ton since I played it back in 2012. I think endurance is extremely hard (And it should be) so it puts up a good challenge. I recommend playing that with friends. But I enjoy and back in 2012 only played the survival game mode because the achievements were not worth anything untill now since they are on your steam profile. But this is a fun game that I have enjoyed for about six years, I wont stop playing till I get all the achievements!

Great Game If you loved it on xbox you will love the pc version is really the same. They are not really updating it anymore, but it is still a good game to play with some people. Its fine because it is mostly stable and they improved the graphics some what more then the xbox version. Buy it on sale if you loved the older version.

This game was really fun, everyone should buy it, however my only grievance is that this game isn't more expensive. At 5$, this game is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too low a price for the though and expertise made by the developers to make a game that will top any gamers Top 10.
10/10, very nice


















***jk this game is dog ♥♥♥♥, don't buy please. spend the money on castrating yourself or something, but not this unfinished, unoptmized, piece of human excrement.***
