Hehe, thanks for waiting for more info before judging. Hang in there for a bit and soon you'll be able to see for yourself how this is a completely different game.
True; Cubelands has been inspired by games like Infiniminer, Dungeon keeper and might look make you think of games like Roblox, Minecraft, Blockland, Second life..however, Cubelands does not compare to a single game out there mainly because of the built in community features that greatly dominate gameplay (Achievements, friendslists, screenshot sharing, sharing buildings/levels(?))

Fine, I'm gonna track and see where it goes, but be sure to make chemistry or alchemy.

So what you are basically saying is that this is like minecraft, without the survival mode, just with social features?

I have to say, it looks like minecraft.

More details as to why your game is 'new' are required.

Furthermore, if your gameplay and such is the same as minecraft, be very, very wary. Valve have taken an interest in minecraft.

And valve get nasty in court over small things.

Um, I really like the look of minecraft. And the original Monkey Island for that matter! I love old looking games! This is just like minecraft without the pixely charm.

Excuse me, "most of you complain all day" I take offense to that because MOST of us do not complain all day, and "give them a chance and get lives" MOST of us ARE giving it a chance, and MOST of us DO have lives, I am a game developer and modder, and goat herder as for "alot of hard work gos into to indie games most of you should know" MOST of us DO know how much work goes into an indie game, or any game for that matter, but just because a game took a lot of effort does not make it good, I am not saying this game is not good, I have not played it so I don't know.

Honestly, minecraft has a very tight community that will support it through and through, making a similar game was a bad idea. I also don't see how you can hope to directly compete with it.

If I had to guess i'd say this game has been in planning and development for a while, and the similarity with it / minecraft is purely coincidental.

If not well remember that inspiration is the ultimate form of flattery.

this is my exact opinion.

and hey, to all you minecraft lovers, Minecraft was pretty much a ripoff of Infiniminer, but it moved away from infiniminer's style, and took it's own retro style.

while this seems to be more of a roleplay game, like playing lego. while that's not quite my sort of game, it looks better than many games, and promises to be more community-intergrated. and the best thing is, it's better than Manic Digger. that's ALWAYS a plus.

ALWAYS.

(FYI, I love minecraft, so any argument about me hating it is invalid)
