Update 1.9.7.5 is live! Want extra pockets for the things you love?


- We added a second Item tray! Toggle between trays by pressing G.
- By popular request, you are now able to rebind the Number keys.
- Fixed mouse sensitivity slider to work as expected.
- Right clicking on doors while holding a pickaxe will no longer harvest them.
- Added an option to not have the second item tray faded. Helps performance.
- Fixed the Space Rock in loot blocks to be useful in crafting.
- Survival mode loot block rate was reduced again. We're considering turning it way down and leaving Scavenger mode as the choice for loot blocks.

Curious about that second item tray? Here's a dev post talking about it:

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!

This game is great if your looking for some fun, it's even better with friends. While the blocky design is a Minecraft clone the concept and end goal of the game is far from. basically your goal is to get as much recources as possible and survive against monsters that are deadly. The farther you go from spawn the better recources you will find. I know it looks and sounds like a copy of MC but really give this one a try. My only complaint is alot of the times attacking zombies will phase through you. That's quite a problem.

Ahh this game. I'm not sure what to say. I first found this game on the Xbox 360 and I fell in love with it. For my 12 year old self Minecraft with guns and more dragons was like heaven. Now i came back a few years later and find it on Steam. I bought it since it's a low price tag and I still enjoy it. Not as much as back on Xbox but it's still a good game. It isn't as much as a Minecraft rip off as it may seem to be. There is a great exploration system, multiple zombie types, aliens, space guns, and a lot of dragons. Not to mention you can fight Satan himself. Don't believe me? I think this is a good game all in all. It's still young but I feel like it has potential. it's not perfect but the developers are still working on it. So give it a try.

What do you mean this game is only fun with friends? Who do you think I am to have a friends list full of people that want to play games with me? What am I a famous youtuber?



But really the game is alright. It runs well and gets updated quite a bit. My only problem is its gets boring after playing it for like 30 minutes even with friends. But other then that its not a bad game even for its price. I can't say if you should or shouldn't buy it, its your choice. I'm just going to vote yes to recommend this game but I mostly stand neutral on this game.

I love this game. I used to play this game all of th time on the Xbox 360. But now... you guys are getting sloppy...... The game is crashing for no reason, a bunch of lag, and a lot of glitches... I think you guys should fix the problems/glitches beefore you guys add new things. And it won't let me write this review.

This game is my favorite, but theres a problem. The Memory Issues! I swear my game has crashed from running out of memory so many times and this shouldnt be an issue. I was so close to beating endurance mode and then my game crashed and said it was out of memory! And might i add i have 16g of ram so there should be some sort of option to allocate more ram.

Pretty fun game, if a zombie gets next to you you instantly die after 1000 meters, cant shoot demons, dragons are now a one hit kill (for me to kill them) The aliens have more health than most of the dragons i've come across, the animation is funny, achievements dont work, and the zombies jump like ♥♥♥♥ing psychos making them hard to hit with the already funky controls.

This game has a bad rap, apparently. I don't know why to be honest. I really like the game and sure it has it's flaws like clunky enemy movements and such but what game doesn't? I would say it is an enjoyable game especially for fans of Minecraft as it is very similar but in this you have guns and lasers. all in all 69(ish) % Mixed review is absoulty not what I would've expected as the rating. I like the game.

I went to lantern land on xbox, so 60,000 meters and lost everything, and to be honest I love this game, if you have friends who will play it with you it will be fun. No one on steam I know has it though so yea. All I can say is it is better on console but maybe give it a try on PC.
