1.9.8 is Live

Aliens and Hell Lord Spawners are here!

* Spawn blocks can be found randomly in the world. They are most common in Scavenger mode.
* Spawners generate enemies once you activate them with right click.
* There are 3 types of blocks found in caves: Basic Zombie, Dangerous Zombie and Alien spawners.
* Hell spawners can be found on the floors of the Hell Biome.
* A powerful Hell Lord will be summoned -- Larger and tougher than the normal version!
* Overall spawner logic has been improved.
* Spawners will reset if you run too far from the monsters.
* Earn loot blocks for clearing spawners.

We plan to shift focus to some more popular requests in upcoming updates - ones that fit into our available resources. We also would like to use spawners for some other content in the future. For now, we hope you enjoy some harder encounters!

Update 1.9.8 is in the Beta Branch

The following changes are available in the public beta branch. Anyone can try them by switching to the branch under the BETAS tab in the steam game properties.

Aliens and Hell Lord Spawners!

We plan to shift focus to some more popular requests in upcoming updates - ones that fit into our available resources. We also would like to use spawners for some other content in the future. For now, we hope you enjoy some challenging encounters! We'll further tweak the behavior based on player feedback.

There's also an Alien Horde block that didn't make it into the build. If there's enough interest, we'll unleash that before we move on to new things.

We'll be moving these changes to the live server after we have some time to ensure the changes are stable and balanced.

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!
