I’m going to be honest, the first time I had ever heard of a game called Cube World was when one of our writers published an article about the alpha not too long ago. I took a quick look at it, and regrettable, hugely overlooked it. I thought a game which looks like Minecraft and is voxel-based, but doesn’t allow you to build and destroy, is going to get boring pretty quickly. Then when the alpha launched, I began to notice a lot of hype surrounding the game, so i did some further research, and decided It was something I probably wouldn’t enjoy. My thoughts were I would rather battle enemies, complete quests, craft and explore in Skyrim than in some cube-world equivalent.
I have been left eating those words, thanks to a game which has given me an immense amount of fun in just a few hours, and those hours will turn into days, trust me. I don’t think I have ever been quite so surprised before.
