Physics
Brick Inventions is a physics based strategy/building game. Basically, you have a large variety of different blocks which you can place in the world to build almost everything you can imagine. The special feature of the game is that every single block has physics - everything you build can be destroyed completely.

Strategy
In the game, each player has a crown on a podium. If the crown falls to the ground, the player loses the game. To prevent this from happening, you have to build defenses and weapons out of blocks. This requires resources, which you get by transporting resource-blocks from a producer to a warehouse. Each producer and warehouse has a special object on a podium (like the crown). If such an object falls to the ground, the producer/warehouse loses all of its upgrades.

Inventions
Since everything is created out of blocks, it may take long to build things that are more complex. The Inventor-mode enables you to create your own inventions out of bricks, which you can save and then place in singleplayer-, multiplayer- and sandbox-games like any other block. Invent a new machine, more efficient weapon or more powerful defences - the better your ideas, the better are your chances of winning a multiplayer game or mastering a challenge in a singleplayer game.

Single & Multiplayer
Brick Inventions offers both a singleplayer- and a multiplayer-mode. The singleplayer-mode consists of different levels, each featuring a different kind of challenge. The multiplayer-mode enables you to play against players all over the world. In order to win a game you do not only need to have a good strategy, but also powerful inventions - defend your crown and shoot down those of your enemy.

Sandbox
The sandbox consists of a large map with infinite resources. In this mode, you can build and destroy everything you want since sandbox-maps can be saved.

One year ago, I uploaded the first video of Brick Inventions. Many things have changed since then and so I thought about making a video, which summarizes everything that has happened in this year. Here it is:

So what happened during the year?
When I uploaded the first video in July 2013, the game was in a very early development state and so I focused on implementing the core mechanics and game-modes. That included tools like the Join-tool, the Inventor-mode or the Sandbox-mode. After that was done, I completely recreated the resource system in September before I focused on improving smaller things (like more stable physics or the options-menu,...). In November, I started to implement more blocks to the game (Accelerator, Trigger and Gate) until January 2014, when I wanted to focus on more important things in order to get the game finished. That's basically what I've been doing since then. I updated the graphics, fixed bugs, created the first multiplayer-map and prepared a demo version of the game (It's still not finished but the big parts are almost done).

If you want to know more details about the game, check out the development blog: www.brickinventions.net.

It's been an awesome year and I would like to thank everybody who has followed this project and has given me feedback. I've already learned so much since I started with the game and I hope it won't disappoint you.

Stay tuned :)

I may add another block material in future versions but I don't want to completely copy the materials from minecraft so it probably won't be a diamond block. I'd rather implement new ideas which I think is more interesting since there are already enough minecraft-clones out there.

Just found out that a bug I already fixed two times before is back again so I just rewrote the whole loading system from scratch.

As I just modified the explosion-force calculation, I found out that there has been a bug for months. It works way better now :)
