Has anyone else played this? It's only in the alpha of its build, but it's already very refined.... well, for a game with blocky graphics. Seriously, this game will play on my 6-year-old Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop with an FX 5200 64mb GPU. I don't know of any other current game that will do that.


If you haven't read up on it, you should. It looks like crap, but it is amazingly addictive.

Yea this games been out for awhile now but only recently been exploding in popularity. I just watched a video of a guy that built a 16 bit arithmetic logic unit out of blocks and it blew me away. Next hes building ram units and eventually it'll be a computer

I just bought it last night, playing it off and on at work and at night.
Its a nice pick up and play game. And I can only imagine what the final build will have.
Very impressed so far.

I think I'm going to buy this one. It's like $12 (converted from Euros) so not a bad price and free updates too!

EDIT: $14.12 exactly.

Here's a nice little fan-made trailer.

If you've ever played the game, you'll understand the end... :D

I bought it the other night and have put a lot of hours into it building various compounds.

Several days in and I still get a kick out of random destruction of the environment.
