Pixel Miners is an upcoming 2D sandbox game where players can mine, fight, and adventure. It is heavily inspired by games such as Terraria, Zelda, Sonic the Hedgehog, and many more to add to the experience. The game is designed as Blue Cake Studio's first major game project for the Windows platform. A Windows Phone and Android version are currently being experimented with.

Hello Everyone,

After a long absence we are back to developing Pixel Miners. Much has been done in between the absence to fix up the game's state. The original build was unplayable, boring, and ugly. Now we've improved it and have a solid platform to work off of. 

Red and Blue have been hard at work creating content and I've been hard at work reprogramming all the mechanics. Below is a video where I demonstrate my ability to speak poorly over screen captures to tell you all that we're back to developing the game and where we are at! I also tell you a wonderful tale of how lazy I used to be with the "updates" so that's fun to listen to. Forgive me for the 360p quality. YouTube didn't want to process the 720p footage for whatever reason.

That was lengthy! Check out the forum we created and make sure to give us some suggestions for what you'd like to see in the game for the future.

Thanks for following us,
Blue Cake Studios

"Pixel Miners is a unique 2D sandbox game where players can mine, fight, and adventure."

Which part of this exactly is "unique"? People are just throwing the word around it's slowly starting to lose its meaning.

Well at this point I agree, there's nothing really unique about it. I should reserve that word for the future when there is more content to show. Thanks for pointing it out :)

Hi there. My name is Jack and I am 13 years old. I am an independent game developer, graphic artist, web designer, DJ and music producer. I am currently working with the LÖVE2D engine but I am looking to start helping other indie developers as LÖVE is not powerful enough for me.
I was wondering if you would like some help, maybe with sorting out bugs or improving textures (IMO I don't really like the cloud textures or the sun texture). I am not asking for a permanent position but something more like an internship? I think working on a project with as good a looking future as this one could really help get my career started in game development. ~ Jack

Hello Jack, I have been told you're our new music guy. (I was told by Oraki) I quite like the music of yours he's shown me. Looking forward to having you on the team! :) Also, Maybe you could look at our website! (It was made and designed by me.)

Hi Red,
Thank you for the kind words, and please tell Oraki thanks for having me. I'm not sure as it was hard to communicate with Oraki at first (seeing as he's in America and I'm in Britain) but as of now he says music is not a problem and I'm mainly focusing on re-texturing etc., when/if Oraki adds me to the Dropbox I might start making modding tutorials (if that's something you want players to be able to do).
I'm also extremely good at bug-finding and correcting if there is ever any issues with that. If you need any help, like I said to Oraki, I am dj_jack_boyd on Skype.
Cheers,
Jack

Hey jack, I don't know if there will be modding or not, but it does seem like a cool idea. (Terraria and minecraft, this games inspirees did it, so why not us?)
And hey, if you have a steam account you could probably be more involved with us as that is our most used form of communication. My steam name is Redseven, and if you don't have a steam account, you should get one. its free! C: ~Red
