I like games. I do a podcast about them. Check it on my website.

So today, I bought Vox from Indiegamestand. This marks the
third Minecraft clone-ish style game I have on Desura. (Guncraft and Sky
Nations are the other two.) I have really been enjoying checking out how each
developer puts their own spin on the whole block building style.

One of my more intelligent friends told me that there was a
time when all FPS games were called “Doom clones”. The point is, there is a
line in which those games stopped being clones and started being a new genre
all together. My question is this: where is that line? Are we approaching this
line with Minecraft clones? I must say I dislike using that word since I am
enjoying my Desura block builders, whereas I can no longer enjoy vanilla
Minecraft.

So what should this new genre be called? Voxel based block
builders? Voxel block games? VBGs?
