BuildVille - World Creator
Why a minecraft clone?
July 6, 2013 - MaDPuPPeT
I've posted ths is comments also, but thought it probably should go here also.
I thought I should do this as an annoucement before I am deluged with "This is just a minecraft clone, get original!" comments...
Firstly, yes it is... inspired by minecraft..
My son is addicted to Minecraft but I wanted a version where you could make your own objects/tile/actors and missions. This is more a game creator than a game, really.
Each world is self contained, so all the actors, tiles and objects you create are packaged with the world.
I wanted something that anyone could just mod easily. Modding minecraft seems like quite a steep learning curve. This will have mostly ingame modding with event structures similar to Construct -- ie. if use and I have this item, then do this...
I also just want to be able to add any sort of fun things that I want, like cars and planes, and an FPS mode, and a platform game, etc. And it supports 3D and will support Occulis Rift natively when the 1080p devkits come out.
So, not sure where this will evolve over the year. The purpose for getting on steam is just to raise money so I can work on t fulltime rather than part time, and so I can share the PC version which makes a great party game in split screen dual monitor mode.
Its cross platform with the iOS and Mac versions which I'll be releasing shortly, so if its never released on Steam, at least enjoy it there. Not sure what I'll do with the PC version.
