After an intense month of hacking and working hard on it,  we have released version 5.0 of Block Story.
The changelog is ridiculously big.  We have incorporated suggestions from our desura customers, as well as from other sources.
We went through 7 beta tests to make sure we delivered a quality product that you will enjoy.  Easily, this is our largest release ever.

Major features include Creative Mode,  Teleporting,  a Radar, speed improvements and separate chests. 

Enjoy the fruit of our labor, we have put our heart into it.

I'm befuddled, astounded and dumbfounded :P

I love the new mass-crafting option, also I actually had the ability to change the items my character holds using the mouse wheel before this update, thanks for making it official with this update though :)

Hehe, I forgot the rest of my comment..... Thank YOU! Thank you VERY VERY much for this update!
