    Since it has come up in the "Playing now" thread, I figured this game deserved a separate thread. I know a few Baggers are playing it. I am also working on getting a WB multiplayer server up and running for MC so we can all get on and collectively fuck off, build, tunnel, and kill shit. Anyone else in? You have to have a paid-for copy of Minecraft to play it online.

    As it stands now, I am having issues connecting to the server. I may need someone to try to connect from the outside for me.

    It looks fun, but not worth $12.

    $20, actually. Seems like the dev is good at pushing updates, though, and adding new stuff on a regular basis.

    Ok, I think I have the server working. Anyone wanna give this a shot?

    I've been playing it. I won't buy it until it's out of beta though.

    I think you are gonna be waiting a while, then. Ive already started doing a little digging and building on the MP server I set up for the 'bag. I managed to get a safehouse set up before it got dark, now Im working on expanding it and getting a full workshop built.

    Yeah, those fuckers SUCK. I am always careful to lead them away from my house before they explode. Even worse when theyre still out in broad daylight...

    So, nobody else wanna give this a try? I have easily gotten $20 of enjoyment out of the game so far, and multiplayer would be pretty enjoyable.

    I tried the multiplayer once. I popped into a multiplayer server with a neat little town and a happy community. Then everything was on fire and covered in lava. It was quite amusing. I found it a bit too laggy though.

    I pirated it sometime last year and I had a short blast. Once I had survived the first few nights, built my shanty sea shack, and did some mining the premise got boring to me. Though I did really enjoy the first few in-game day cycles, and more power to anyone that can stretch out the enjoyment I felt at the beginning.

    Some of the things that people are able to build within the confines of the game do quite often astound me.

    I'm also envious of the amount of money this guy pulled in from the game. I hope he continues to cater to his community because they definitely put him on their backs and carried him around to where he is today.

    Well, I have my server humming along nicely. One of my buddies has been on there with me, building shit. Would love to see a couple 'baggers join in. Plus, in MP it is easy for me to give people tools and such...

    if I like you, anyway.

    I've finally created a house and built a fire. I carved my house out of a huge rock cliff. I'm mining below it as we speak. This game rules.

    Paid for? If so, youre more than welcome to give my MP server a shot. I don't leave it up and running all the time, though.

    I pirated it. Like I said, I'll wait until it's out of beta or almost complete.

    Have you not seen this yet?

    Zero Punctuation review

    Not only does he hit a home run in how funny the review is (especially if youve been playing already), but its dead on. And he LIKED THE GAME! :icon_eek: That nearly never happens. Think creativity game with monsters.

    Ok I bought it since it looks like an interesting time waster but I'm not getting the crafting thing just yet. I can make basic stuff like torches, picks, and a workbench but haven't been able to figure out anything more advanced.

    You need to mine a lot. I've spent 3/4th of my time mining to get minerals. It's insane how far below ground I've dug.

    This. In addition some of the things you can make you will probably never random stumble across on your own. Looking up the FAQs and wiki is almost mandatory.

    Hoagie, PM me if you wanna give MP a try sometime.

    For those that wanna cheat yourself some better stuff just so you can build to your hearts content, you can find inventory and map editors out there.

    Anyone see that video on YouTube where the guy built an actual size replica of the USS Enterprise?
