I just wanted to point out a game I came across today. It is called Cube World. So yea it may be another Minecraft clone but honestly I don't care. My theory has always been with clones, and rip offs is that if you improve greatly on it then I will throw money at you, if I dig the game.
So here we have Cube World. At first glance it looks almost exactly like Minecraft but with better looking characters, then you turn on the video and realize...this is only slightly like Minecraft because it looks like it, but the gameplay appears to be much more in depth and RPG'ish.
There is no download of the game yet as it is currently in development, but it is a game I am going to follow for sure!
