The Cube World download is now available! You can now download Cube World Alpha for €15 or $20.10. Note that servers are currently overloaded and you may have trouble purchasing and playing Cube World.
There was some confusion about whether a Cube World Alpha version was already available in June because a closed Cube World Alpha was given to some gamers such as those at Yogscast. However, they were the lucky ones and part of the deal would have been that they had to promise the developer that they would not distribute it.
Cube World is inspired by cult classics such as Zelda, Diablo and Minecraft and The Cube World game is an action role playing game and combines lots of great RPG elements such as creation, exploration and action. The German developer of Cube World Wollay says of his game:
My inspirations were Minecraft, Zelda, Secret of Mana, Monster Hunter, Diablo, World of Warcraft and many more. My aim was to create an infinite, colorful, procedurally generated world, full of adventures, monsters, and mysteries. The result is Cube World, a voxel-based role-playing game.

Cube World download – Better than Minecraft?
It’s immediately apparent how similar Cube World looks to Minecraft and there will inevitably be comparisons. While Cube World lacks the originality of Minecraft, it’s arguably got more depth because of the various influences cited by the developer and it certainly looks a bit better with more pixel dense graphics.
Like Minecraft, world’s are randomly generated endlessly and players can generate their own world. Also like Minecraft, there are no borders to Cube World – your imagination is the only limit. There are also lots of different landscapes ranging from mountains, caves and rivers to dungeons, temples and even catacombs.
