Pretty ******* stupid. Go create something unique. Another Infini-miner rip-off isn't needed in this world

Don't say that. Ace of Spades and Minecraft are pretty damned good, and offer experiences you can't have in Infiniminer.
The upcoming Blockland and Cube World are looking very unique and inspiring too.

This here looks very unpolished and bland, though.

Ace of Spades and Minecraft are the only 2 exceptions, as those do offer a unique experience. But after those two, there's nothing else unique you can really create with a block based world.

Sure there is. That's like saying there's nothing unique you can really create with any game that's already been done - FPS, RPG, tower defense, etc. There are an infinite number of games that can be created from a block world (just not this one apparently).

The guy who is making Cube World was hired by Mojang - Wollay.blogspot.com That one looks pretty unique.

There are tons of things found here that are not in infiniminer or minecraft. The tip of the iceberg:

* Quests
* Infinite up and down
* Colored light
* Colored glass
* leveling up with skill points (run faster, fly faster...)
* Mana
* Spells you can cast on mobs
* cars
* guns
* flying linked to mana
* Forgotten sky
* Hell
* Moria
* Floating islands
* 1km high mountains
* full compatibility between mobile and desktop
* 60% cheaper
* 10x the framerate. I get 1000 fps in my laptop (not a typo)

The only thing we have in common with infiniminer and minecraft is the voxel terrain and crafting. Everything else is different.

Funny how I can see textures of a MC texture pack. I wonder. Did you ask the creator?
