Welcome to StaudSoft's Synthetic World Beta! It allows you via a seed to create a unique landscape with mountains, oceans, trees and beaches. Although it looks like a normal game engine, everything in the game is based on voxels. So everything you see can be changed. You can cut down trees, build a house or dig into the ground!

Tweet: Voxel background landscape

First test of the new (full voxel) background landscape. Currently it is only stone but the overhangs are clearly visible.



Next step is that I put this thing in a seperate thread (currently it is in the main thread which is not so good).

Tweet: Far Voxels

So the world generator now creates the voxels for the far landscape. A 256 x 256 m segment takes about 5 seconds to generate.

The next step is that the far voxels are visualised. Started with this today.

About This Game


This is a work in progress title! Do not buy this game if you do not want to fund us!
This game is an open world sandbox game. Everything in this world is already changeable. The blocks are very small compared to other games of this genre. Instead of 1 block per cubic meter we have 64 blocks per cubic meter.

What is currently missing (from what you might expect):
  • Multiplayer
  • The AI is stupid and the monsters are placeholders
  • Minecart
What is already implemented:
  • A C++ based game engine (we created our own engine)
  • Motion captured animations
  • Infinite Landscape
  • Create your own landscape via heightmap and vegetation density map
  • A lot of different block types (see wiki)
  • Pregenerated landscape: You can start playing the game in seconds!
  • Torches, lamps, camp fires (with dynamic shadows)
  • Chests
  • Doors
  • Boat
  • Water simulation
  • Electric wires (LEDs, buttons, ...)
  • Growing of plants and trees
  • A bed
  • Weapons (stick, sword, pistole)
  • Grids
  • Paintings
  • Signs
  • Different types of landscapes
  • Caves
  • Fire simulation
  • Heat simulation
  • Crafting via recipes
  • Simple monsters
  • Voxel renderer
  • Deferred Rendering System
  • HDR Renderer
  • High End Animation System
  • Bullet Physic Engine
  • In-Game Entity Editor
  • Day and night cycle
  • Sky rendering system (physically correct)
  • Master of materials (some blocks have submaterials)
  • And of course such things as loading and saving do work. You can also die in the game, there is an inventory. When you die you will drop your backpack.
If you unsure just check out the demo. We are a team of talented developers and artists. The main developer has 2 university degrees in computer science (if this is important for you). The main artist has a master in biology. So we know what we are doing.
If you have the impression that in this description is something missing or if you feel the need to warn other people not to buy this game contact us. As long as you can deliver facts we will add your argument to this description.
What you shouldn't do:
  • Do not insult the developers, the game, the players or others (Yes we all know that we are completely stupid, that we are garbage, that we are a shame for our university, that we should change our jobs, that this game is only a stupid clone, that this is scum, that we are lying about our degrees, that we clicked this game in an editor in two days together, that I am a college kid, that this game is crabby, should I continue?).
  • Do not say that the price is not justified. You have no idea how much work we put in this project. Simply do not buy it!
  • Do not give false information about this game (we see a difference in the graphics between this game and other blocky sandbox games, other couldn't recognise this difference).
  • If you talk about how bad this game is and that it should be deleted, burned or something else you should have played the demo and then say exactly what should be change. We will try to improve it.
  • Do not post something again in the forum when we deleted it.
If you do not follow these rules we will delete your comment.

We understand that a lot of people simply tried to make money with such games and then never continued the development. Originally we didn't marked it as Early Access to emphasize that you buy it as it and that you shouldn't buy this game if you are unsatisfied with the current development status. Unfortunately a lot of people saw in this cheating which wasn't our intention.
