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 like if Minecraft and Call of Duty had a child, but Call of Duty divorced Minecraft and Skyrim became the Step-Father

It's fun to play with FRIENDS. and ONLY with FRIENDS.

I guarentee you'll spend 2+ hours laughing non-stop at the broken, crappy animations.
Then after you're done doing that, you'll play seriously. And die.
And die.
And die.
And die.
Until you get lucky, find diamonds and get a good gun.
Then you'll start getting as far away from spawn as possible.
Following the compass, you hope you find the end soon.
at only 100 blocks.

You 1 shot everything, feeling like God. Then you get 2 shot by a single zombie who runs up behind you.
You rage quit.
Your friends beg you to come back.
So you do,
and you get OP
run
get 10k blocked.
Realise you are nowhere near the end.
Push on.
at 100k you are getting tired.
At 200k you almost give up.
at 500k, you're dead.

And you restart the loop.
To only infinitely play the game.
Over
and
Over.

A lot of fun, but easily misunderstood. The point of this game (Could be better advertised) is to get as far from where you start as possible. The world and the enemies change and get harder the further you go. Think of it as an arcade game, albeit with a lot of freedom and strategy and some nice multiplayer dynamics. To avoid confusion. It's not Minecraft. If you're looking for a Minecraft experience you will be somewhat disapointed. If you try to play it as though it's Minecraft you will be somewhat disapointed. Anyways let's see if I can get out to 2000 metres this time :)
