Hello again, Cube Creator friends. We wanted to let you know that we’re making tons of progress on our first free update for Cube Creator 3D. Let’s just say that this first update release will be extensive. Thanks to your generous input, we have quite a long list of improvements and bug fixes that will be upgraded and enhanced. Here are the items we’re currently adding: two new environments, new features to existing environments, new enemies, ladders, several new block types, several texture packs, the ability to transfer environments between creative and survival modes, several bug fixes, and improved loading time and performance.
We’ve begun the initial planning stages for adding multi-player, but it will not be functional in time for the first update. This is a huge undertaking and will need more time and energy in development. The good news is we are nearly complete with our list of improvements, and plan to submit to Nintendo by mid-June. Again, this update will be completely free for everyone who’s purchased Cube Creator 3D from the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS. To those playing, creating, and sharing your designs, we thank you kindly; we’re lucky to have such a great group of users who are enjoying the game.
Great news! Battleminer Update v2.0 (Multiplayer Local & Internet with Friends + Animals + New Lighting + Bug Fixes) will be released on Thursday 21st May 2015! (two days time).
There will also be a HALF-PRICE SALE (North America/Canada/Brazil/Mexico) from Thursday so you can get your friends to buy a copy to play multiplayer with!
To update on Thursday:
1. Visit eShop
2. Search Battleminer
3. Tap on the Battleminer game icon.
4. Tap ‘Update’.
Thanks for your support everyone!
Ever since I’ve been into portable gaming (which I’ve been doing almost exclusively on Nintendo handhelds ever since the original Gameboy), there have been two games missing in my life that I’ve wanted to take with me everywhere I go more than any other games out there. Those two games being Minecraft and Portal. To my surprise, in all these years no developer had taken it upon themselves to create and publish their own clones for either the original Nintendo DS or the 3DS. Then one day I had my mind completely blown when I discovered that a single developer (who goes by the handle smealum) released his own homebrew versions of both of those games on the original DS hardware. Unfortunately, however, they were largely conceptual, unfinished, somewhat buggy and understandably, never published as full fledged games on either system. They were cool, no doubt about it, but I wanted more. Something finished. Something published. So it’s with giddy pleasure that I get to try out Cube Creator 3D from Big John Games and see how it holds up as far as Minecraft clones are concerned. Let’s check it out…
