What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to involve the community in the development process because you, who are reading this, are who we make the game for. We would love to hear your feedback and ideas, some of which have already made it into the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This game will be in Early Access until it's done, which is strongly depending on how much sales we get as this allows us to hire additional people and speed up the process. The approximate time frame for the release is early 2024 to late 2025. 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 battlegrounds, 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.

Since the Early Access release, a lot of features and content has already been added or improved, including dungeons, quests, space combat, and much more.”

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 strong enemies in 5-player dungeons, obtain powerful armor and weapons, 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 about 40 different quests.
At this state of development, you can expect to play at least 10 hours until you have seen most of the content apart from building things like your own house or even a whole city, and exploring, which can take basically as long as you want.”

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

“We will gradually raise the price as the game is getting more features and content, as well as when the game is fully released.”

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, crafting recipes, and even whole dungeons with boss encounters.”

About This Game

The universe was once peaceful, a place where magic and technology co-existed and everyone strove for the greater good. But then, many thousand years ago, a freight ship crashed on the home planet of the Rok'lin, a primitive species of warriors. Quickly, they studied the alien technology and built an army of spaceships, powerful enough to conquer entire worlds. The few survivors of their attacks joined them in what would become the Ancient Empire. But some resisted, forming a powerful alliance: the United Planets.

Millennia later, the war has calmed down. But distrust lays deep within both factions and fights break out regularly.


Fly through space with your own ship and fight against enemies. Buy and upgrade spaceships at one of the local space stations. Or beam down and explore many different, procedurally generated planets.


Fight powerful enemies in deep caves and high towers. Be quick and vigilant to survive their attacks.


Various people and, apparently, fungi will give you quests that will reward you with experience and sometimes weapons and armor. But you can't trust everyone, so it's up to you to make the right decisions.


Pick one of 5 different weapons, each with unique abilities and talents. Are you a fire mage, a healer, or a protector?


You can play alone or with your friends. Regular dungeons are made for 5 people - but don't worry because NPCs will join your group if it is too small.


Choose a profession and advance it to craft powerful items. Become a tailor, blacksmith, jeweler, enchanter, and more.


Thanks to a custom-made engine, there are almost no limitations: build with mini cubes that are just 0.5 meters in size, with a maximum building height of over 2 km (4096 blocks).


Cube Universe is currently an Alpha, but we're getting close to the Beta. Here is a short list of the planned features. Additionally, more content like new planets, quests, or dungeons will be added.

Improved multiplayer (coming in Alpha 0.7)
Server list (partially working already), friend list, playing the same character on multiple servers, recruitment tool for dungeons etc.

Mods and user-generated content (coming in Beta 1.0)
Support for easy modding, including a terrain editor for custom terrains with custom quests. Most of the content is already defined in XML and Lua 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, the Lua API will be expanded 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.

PvP (coming in Beta 1.1)
Fight other players on battlegrounds. Possibly including vehicle combat.
