@Savino Thank you very much for very kind words.

There are many of you asking for new skins, so it is a signal for us to think about it.
And Of course, the video is just slowed down to create a slow-motion effect. Be sure game works very smooth, 30+ frames per seconds!

Thank you for supporting us! We really appreciate it.

@McoobabWATP It is a global rankings for both North American and European players to find out who is the best :)
There will be a nickname along with days survived, actual level and experience.
We will see the TOP 100 players of the month and the TOP 100 players overall. We have plans to reward such players for example the best players will automatically gets our new games, etc :)

@Savino Hi. Multiplayer is not finished from our side yet, so we are not able to publish the final words. But, local multiplayer looks promising, one player with Gamepad, the second with Pro controller + TV.

We would really like to implement online multiplayer, it is not easy, but we will do our best. At least for 4 players, ideally for 6-8 players.

How long we plan to support the game? It depends on you - Nintendo players. We plan to support the game for entire 2015 for sure. If there is interest from Nintendo community by bringing us fresh ideas and lot of feedback, the support will last one year since release - at least! :)

Cypronia commented on Review: Stone Shire (Wii U eShop):

@Drumpler It really looks like Stone Shire developer or close person wrote this :)

Btw, we are a Nindie developer too. Few years ago, some of our games got really low score, we had same feelings like you, we tried to defend us. But it was useless. It is better to put that energy to make better games. Do not take criticism to take you down... analyze it, because it can help to move forward.

The site is NOT against the small Nindies. We are Nindie, too. The site is here for Nintendo players. They pay money for good games. It is fair to point out (like reviewer did) that this game is currently not worth of that price because it is a rushed and unfinished demo. You created it, published it, asking $7.99 for it. Honestly, we 100% agree with the review, that Stone Shire is currently a tech demo. You would do better to release it for free, at this stage as it is.

We could do the same and we could release Cube Life in November when we had the same level of content as you have right now. But it would be not fair to ask $6.99 and make promises, we will include this and that later... please wait 6 months.

So, we have worked hard, included a LOT of content and going to release it next week. Our standard retail price is $14.99. BUT, we know that there are still many features we can implement, so we rather ask $6.99 now, and raise the price when extra features like multiplayer, sharing maps, and more is done.

We really wish you good luck and lot of energy finishing your game.

@Morpheel Yes, the name of the game is Cube Life: Island Survival and it will be released in North America on June 4th!

We think there is everything you are expecting from a block building survival game. Here is the list of game features:

  • Block building open-world
  • Creative Mode
  • Survival Mode
  • Day/Night cycles
  • Crafting
  • Trading
  • Leveling
  • Local Inhabitants
  • 200+ Items and Tools
  • Explosives
  • Wild animals
  • Realistic graphical effects like water reflections and sunbeams
  • Optimized cube rendering 30+fps
  • Internet Rankings with global charts

the price is $6.99 ONLY

Currently we are working on Multiplayer, which will be distributed as an game update.

@Royalblues
1) All non-animal characters are brown skin people, including you as a hero :)

2) There are 2 parties. Cannibals and Local inhabitants. Cannibal are aggressive, they attack everybody. Local inhabitants are peaceful, it is up to you if you act as a good person and trade with them, or you can steal stuff from them or even fight. In that case they will fight back, of course. We offer a freedom for the players, they decide what they want to do!

3) We do have dark skinned people because it take place on tropical islands. If it took place on North pole, we would do eskimo like people. We wanted to keep some level of realism in Cube Life. It is not a Minecraft copy with a fantasy characters like dragon, zombies, skeletons etc

Do not judge a game just from a short action scenes captured for the video teaser :)

@ElkinFencer10 Thank you for supporting us! We care about Nintendo gamers, it is not a sweet lie. You can check our website, all games we developed in last 5 years were Nintendo only. Actually, we giveaway 1000 free games for 3DS and Wii U during April - May to Nintendo community...

@TromboneGamer Sure it is not. Water reflection fps is low, because game fps is high (30-40) and what you see is a slow-motion video effect, not dropping frame rates. Dumb shark design/animation - many people like it and call it "minecraft style".
You realize a new experience when you try to play such game genre on the Gamepad. Thanks for your comment, anyway.

@Kaze_Memaryu Thank you for your opinion. Let us explain why we use the launch discount. We have very high faith in our game. And we also value Nintendo community.

The first version which will be released in 2 weeks is quite complex with lot of content compare to our competitors. But it does not include multiplayer and there are still many features we would like to include. We have many new ideas and you, players, have them, too. We would like to hear from you and implement best ideas you suggest. Now we see, that many of you are asking for multiplayer, so we have just started to do multiplayer modes. If many of you want 3rd person view, we will include.

We know that general demand for block building genre on Wii U is very large. We could sell it for $14.99 and when sales drops, lower the price like others do and do not care anymore. There are many articles about problems with pricing games on eShop and discounts, maybe you know. So we try something new.

Our strategy is different, because... We are not just Nintendo developer, we are Nintendo players and we are a part of Nintendo community. We own all Nintendo consoles, we wear Tshirts with Mario... so our strategy is different.

We offer 60% launch discount, then work with community on future updates, to make Cube Life the best of its genre. If the game has multiplayer and more features that now it has, we will sell it for the full price $14.99.

We value all Nintendo users which will support us at beginning and buy discounted version, they will get all new updates (with multiplayer) for free :)

@rjejr Hello. "a whole new experience" the main reason is experience to play such a game on the Gamepad. And it is possible on the Wii U only. There are also more reasons, they all together bring such "experience". You will have a chance to try in 2 weeks, if you want
