Sauropod Studio is developing a new voxel game, called Castle Story. Castle Story is a voxel-based creative strategy game about building castles brick by brick and defending them against enemies. This will definitely remind you of Minecraft as it is obviously inspired by Notch’s title. Your goal will be to explore a vast landscape full of mysteries and dangers, and defend your castle against onslaughts of hostile creatures and possibly other players.
The world of Castle Story takes place on flying islands, high above an infinite ocean. The islands are made of voxels, cubes made of various elements, which means you can dig, carve and build anything you can imagine in the landscape. Digging underground to gather resources, stacking bricks on top of each other to build a wall or even tunnelling through a mountain is all possible and even necessary to keep your Bricktrons safe.
Sounds familiar? Yeap, it does sound like Minecraft (though there are some differences between them as you can see in the following gameplay demonstration). Anyway, the team has released a new gameplay demonstration that can be viewed below. There is also a Kickstarter campaign for it, and thankfully Sauropod Studio has managed to hit (and even surpass) its initial goal of gathering $80,000.
Enjoy the video!
