I'll just leave this right here:

Quote from: TIGSource
Inspired by both the open-source Infiniminer and the wildly popular Minecraft, Blockade Runner aims to have players constructing spacecraft – complete with electronics systems, engines, crew stations, weapons batteries, and more – in a zero-g environment, then using them to explore the universe, either peacefully or struggling against fellow players. The game will also include a fluid algorithm for liquids as well as gasses, so if an enemy weapon happens to breach your ship’s hull, you’d better seal the hole quickly before all your air escapes into the vacuum of space.

Time will tell if Blockade Runner will soar to its full potential, but I’ll certainly be following the development closely.

http://www.zanmgt.com/ is their page, where you can play around with the current early build :D

This looks pretty radical to me.

http://www.blockaderunnergame.com is the new site for the game itself. Current alpha purchase is $10

Downloaded it ...

Very early build, but nice one already.

But, if they don't include any sort of space survivability (air processing, boosters,...), I don't see any interest in the "game" ... ^^'

So it's a sort of hybridization of Minecraft and Space Station 13? Do want.

It's obvious that the project is at a very early stage but I'll definitely have to follow it for future developments.

I would post something more constructive than "Do want", but that description left me thinking only one thing.

All that is later, this is only the second week of dev so actually making the engine work was the first thing it looks like. They're looking at first propulsion for next week.

Whelp.

It's official.

We need a name for these kinds of games.

Perhaps just add the prefix 'voxelized'?

Voxelized Space Simulator (VSS).

Yep that sounds right.

Voxelized Mining and Exploration Game (VMAG) Yup. Even that.

Also I love this so much

I really need to

Minecraft, with zero gravity, separately moving objects, and voxel-assembly vehicles.  Welp.

It must be said, that if you're going to make a new game by obviously copying another game, there's nothing inherently wrong with copying a game that was great in the first place.

It's what, two weeks old? Minecraft had less block types at that point, and multiplayer was unthinkable. Just give it time, it'll blossom.
