Carving out the world

World generation is pretty important in a game like Spoxel. Since the entire world is generated from scratch it needs to be not only engaging but also interesting to look at. Many moons ago, when Spoxel was but a young game I had been using perlin noise to generate the world. That worked to a…

I’m dyeing to show you this

Spoxel is all about customization and making cool stuff. To that end, I couldn’t possibly release the game without some way to customize the color of all your loot!

It has been a pretty busy few months. About 4 months ago I made the decision to pivot on the engine design for Spoxel. It wasn’t a decision I made lightly, but it needed to be done. I was getting pretty close to a beta release but as I added more and more items I…

Dev Update

I’ve been pretty busy between Life and working on Spoxel, but a lot of work has been done. I spent some time reworking my project plan so I can get a better idea of what I have left to work on so I can be a bit more efficient. One of the biggest changes is…

Dev update

Since the last dev update I have taken a pretty big pass on how the crafting system works. I can now assign items to different categories that require you to be near certain blocks to craft them. For example, if you want to smelt copper ore into copper bricks you will need to stand near…
