From The Depths

#1  Postby Spearthrower » Oct 26, 2014 9:44 am

I don't know if this is on anyone's radar, but it is an incredibly fun game.

Generally, I am not into shooting stuff, industrialized wars, or big explosions, but this game makes them all have a meaning. Basically, it's Minecraft but it's actually a game rather than a toy. You can build ships, planes, and low orbit spacecraft from blocks. The difference is that the designs themselves actually impact the effectiveness of those vehicles in combat.

Here's a nice short little let's play from one of my favourite LPers: Aavak

You bastard.

You utter bastard.

I usually avoid games, being able to avoid work perfectly well without extra distraction.

Got this one (on your recommendation I might add) to show spawn that there is a world outside of minecraft. Now he's whining about me hogging it.

I do hope they include a multiplayer over LAN option in the release, that would be fun.

Surprised how functional it is for a pre-alpha.

So far I have managed to make a dinghy which does not automatically sink.

I am so glad to have been of bastardly service! :D

Man, it's hard to get a really good battlecraft going though. I've got some lovely ship hulls, but always struggle with getting guns to do what I want them to do.

My most successful boat so far involves shoving loads of drills on the front, loads of propellers on the back and ramming the bastards to smithereens.
