I am now on holidays and only have sporadic access to the interwebs. I have finished working on the surprise feature and I’m now adding more types of rock so that it could be put to some better use :-)

I want to release the next update ASAP, but lack of internet access makes it a bit difficult.  I’ll let you know if I manage to send it off to Microsoft.

    Okay so I have one request for future updates. A compass. I can not tell you how many times I have gone exploring for resources and then when it comes time to return to the house I built, I cant find the darn thing. A compass would be extremelyyyyy helpful. Please put this into consideration.

    Awesome game, just needs a compass(;

    Did you add animals, or is that going to be in a later update?

      Animals are not yet there. You must wait until at least Alpha 1.4.

    Sounds awesome Kaalus! I can’t wait till you have a chance to code the Mobs so the real survival mode can start. You deserve a break. But when your ready to start on the Mobs please code some weapons too!

      Hi Jarryd and Daniel,

      Thank you and good luck with Craftworld as well. I am sure there is
      enough space in the marketplace for two block world games. It must be
      amazing to have Christmas in the middle of the summer :-)

      Merry Christmas,

    I think the game needs more ‘treasures’ underground, like chests full of goodies. And I think it is boring that there’s only stone below the surface. It would be great if you could add some other resources like basalt, marble or sg like that. Making them useful is another question, but adding resources would make me very-very happy. :D

      You must be reading my mind :-) Basalt, marble and one more rock type are already in.

        Lol, we have quite the same ideas, don’t we :)
        Just please don’t think that I broke into your PC and stole the development version ;)
        I think that you made an amazingly good Minecraft clone, but now you should start adding unique features/blocks to the game.
        The new blocks are an amazing start for this! Keep up the good work, Kaalus :D
        Oh, and look what I did! I made almost 30 pages on the

        Please also add gold ore and diamond ore to the game :) would that be possible?

        • Posted December 20, 2011 at 19:27 | Permalink

          Hi. I can add them, but I don’t want to make the game an exact clone of Minecraft. So I will probably add something slightly different that better fits “survival” concept of the game.

    i not long ago posted on the forums about a possible recipadea being available as a button in the game, with it being on the menu, it just makes it awkward as you have to quit our game then go back in after you know your recipie…

    so possibly a button to open that

    secondly, i was wondering about the screenshots, do you think you would be able to make an external application for screenshots on windows phone, so far only developers can…, but as you have done so brilliantly on the screenshots in the game, i just wondered, also, this would be completely unique to the marketplace…

    keep up the good work and have a nice holiday :)

    some kind of map, or some system to track where you’ve been would totally make my day :)
    because i end making a house or a bunker or just carving out a cave and need to go out to mine more resources, if i go too far i risk getting lost and never being able to find my way back :(

    really sucks when i go underground for a long time and then pop up else where and have no idea where i am
