What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We'd like to involve the community in the development process, so we decided to release this game in Early Access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This game will be in Early Access until approximately late 2019. A detailed road map is available on our website.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“It is planned to add some major features, including dungeons and raids, spaceship combat, space stations, asteroid fields, mod support, and custom maps (community-generated content). Additionally, we'd like to add some more content for already existing features, e.g. more quests, more types of biomes and planets, and so on. See our website for a detailed road map or refer to the "About this game" section for more info.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“You can already do a lot of things in Cube Universe. Travel through the universe in your own spaceship, fight against NPCs, craft items, build a house, do quests, explore epic landscapes, etc.
For more information, please refer to the "About this game" section below. Please note that some features currently do not have a lot of content, e.g. there are only a few different quests. Crafting currently does not include weapons, armor, and matter manipulator modules, and there is only one food item, but we plan to add these before or very soon after the release.
Some of the character models are either partially textured or have no textures at all, and animations are missing.
At this state of development, you can expect to play at least one hour until you have seen most of the content apart from building things like your own house or even a whole city, which can take basically as long as you want.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We set a low price for this game to reflect its current state of development. We will raise the price over time based on the features and content added. Of course you will not have to pay any extra money if you already own the game and there will be no paid DLCs.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We love to read your feedback, be it positive or critical, since this helps us improve the game. Additionally, you are free to post any ideas in the forums and we may be able to include them in the game.
We will work on mod support soon, so you will be able to create new NPCs, crafting recipes, quests, dungeons, planets etc. We try to make creating mods and content as easy as possible - for most of the content, you won't even need to know much about programming to create it, including items, quests, NPCs, and crafting recipes.”

About This Game

Explore a nearly infinite universe, filled with planets of all kinds! Every world in this game is procedurally generated, including quests that you can do to advance your character up to level 50. Venture into deep caves to find precious materials to craft armor and weapons. Or simply spend your time exploring the epic landscapes with mountains that are as high as actual mountains, find a place where you want to stay and build your house or whatever you can imagine, with a building height of up to 2048 meters!

This game is currently in Early Access and we are working hard to add new content and features as fast as we can. But first, let's see what you can already see and do in the game:

Planets

Terra
Earth-like planet with oceans, forests, plains, deserts, jungles, tundras, taigas, etc.

Lunar
Moon-like planet with some rare materials that cannot be found on other planets, e.g. lunar essence from lunar elementals and Mithril ore.

Quests

Procedurally generated quests that are based on the local area, e.g. you have to kill raptors in the jungle to restore nature's balance or get some furs to keep someone warm in colder regions.

Combat system

Choose a weapon instead of a class - your character can use any weapon, but you shouldn't change it too often since you will get out of practice. Currently, only fire staffs are supported.

Crafting

Craft a variety of things, like armor, food, building materials, etc. There are a lot of professions and you can craft the basic stuff from all of them, but can master only a few to craft advanced items like modules for your matter manipulator.

Building

Build with smaller blocks than in other voxel games, giving your creativity more freedom. Blocks are only 0.5 meters big and you can build up to 2048 meters high, which is much higher than in most other similar games.

Coming soon...

Now, let's talk about all the planned features that will be added as development continues. The following list is ordered by the date we plan to add the mentioned features. Additionally, we will add more content for existing features, e.g. more quests and planet types.


Dungeons and raids
MMO-like dungeons and raids that are procedurally generated. Imagine a pyramid with labyrinthine corridors that ultimately lead to bosses that will hopefully drop your desired item.

Mods and user-generated content
Support for easy modding, including a terrain editor for custom terrains with custom quests. Most of the content is already defined in XML files, so we will only have to add some logic that loads user-generated XML files and some code for interaction between different mods. Additionally, a Lua API will be added to support more advanced mods.
Mods will not only be easy to create, but also easy to install - if you connect to a modded server, you will not even have to manually install mods since this will be done automatically.

Space stations
Feeling lonely in space? No one can hear you scream? Well, then visit one of the space stations and meet with other folks! Trade your goods on the intergalactic market, buy upgrades for your spaceship and much more!

Battles in space
Fight other players and NPCs in epic battles in space. Upgrade your spaceship or buy a better one to stand a chance against those filthy space pirates - or to be fast enough to outrun them.

PvP
Fight other players on battlegrounds.

Asteroid fields
Looking for rare materials? Then asteroid fields are the place to go!
