    Review Cube Life: Island Survival

    A summer blockbuster?

    For the past few months, multiple developers have been releasing their own clones of Minecraft in an effort to provide Nintendo gamers with the closest approximation to that source material as possible. Though the concept may seem simple initially, most developers have failed to recreate it in any meaningful way, with...

About The Game

Imagine being stranded on a beautiful deserted island... All of life's necessities: Food, water, shelter - all of your everyday needs are now gone, and it's up to you to survive.

Cannibals and wild animals will not make it any easier for you. You'll need to explore, build, and craft to stay alive. Do you think you have what it takes? Find out in Cube Life: Island Survival!

There are two main modes in the game: Creative Mode and Survival Mode

Creative Mode:

This mode allows you to design and create constructions in a 3D generated game world like you might find in a game editor. There is no limit to your imagination. We plan to implement a feature which will allow players to post their creations and share them with friends online.

Survival Mode:

In Survival Mode, you must maintain your health, explore islands, caves, gather resources, and craft tools on an unknown island. Find food, explore and build during the day. Hide, fight, and survive as night falls on the island.

A living open-world:

Survival mode takes place on a large map with many islands. Players can swim to reach new islands or even use boats to travel. Our focus was to create a living world with wild animals on the land, lurking in caves, swimming under the water, or even flying in the sky. The easiest way to get food on an island is to pick up fruits or hunt animals, but they can range in difficulty. You can also explore a vast under sea world, but beware of sharks, poisonous jellyfish, or even a giant octopus.

Exploring caves will offer you a taste of adventure—that is, until you meet a giant spider! Also, beware of eagles on mountain tops. Some islands are occupied by local inhabitants and you can choose to befriend them, or if you prefer, be a bad guy and steal their items, animals, and fight them—the choice is yours. During the night, it's a good idea to hide, because cannibals will appear and come after you!

Technical features:

It is a block building open-world game, so you can do whatever you want, and you can play how you want to play. We wanted to bring the feeling to the player, as if they are actually stranded on a real island. We put a lot of energy into the visuals like realistic graphical effects—for example, water reflections, sunbeams, day/night cycles, dawn and sunset to create the realistic atmosphere of an actual deserted island.

Crafting:

Currently we have almost 200 items and counting! Gathering resources is a key element to survival. It allows you to craft weapons like swords, axes, and long bows for hunting and fighting. Resources also allow you to build cottages and houses to hide in. Players can also create boats to travel in and much, much more!
