Creativerse

I’ve been playing Creativerse on Steam lately and really enjoying it.  Creativerse is basically a Minecraft clone.  But I feel bad saying that because whenever people call something a “clone” it sounds derogatory and I don’t mean it derogatorily here.  A clone of something you like, if well done, can be a wonderful thing.

I enjoyed building stuff in Creativerse, even if my buildings are all just boxes.

Creativerse has a lot of the things I like about Minecraft but adds nicer graphics, built in recipes, progression in the form of unlocking new recipes, and a great system for playing online.  It just released recently so I think we can expect it to only get better from here.

My first home was, just like when I play MineCraft, a cave I dug into a mountain.

Somebody who’s already played Minecraft will be right at home here.  I played for hours without looking up anything on Wiki’s or YouTube because everything was easy to figure out.  It’s nice to play a new game and not need to go through a tutorial.

Why do I love farming in video games so much?  I have no idea, but I do.

It has crops to plant, animals to care for, and food to cook.  All the basic “digital farming” stuff you’d expect in a game that tries to simulate living in a world.  You don’t starve to death but the foods give various buffs or regenerate health.  The farming system isn’t as robust as I’d like it to be but it’s good enough.  Hopefully they’ll expand it later maybe?

Of course if you dig down deep enough you find a lava level.  Because of course.  I hear there’s a layer below this lava layer but I haven’t gotten deeper than this yet.

There’s a bunch of different Biomes just like in Minecraft, many on the surface and some more straight down under the ground.  For now, while the game is new, I’m very much enjoying wandering around exploring the world.  Finding new things and seeing what I can craft out of them.  And just seeing the sights.  Plus you can Teleport straight back to your home so you never get lost!  That might seem like “easy mode” to some but for me it makes exploring a lot more fun and relaxing.

The animals are totes adorbs.

It’s free to play so you can try it on Steam for nothing.  But they do charge twenty bucks for a “Pro” version that comes with a glider and other perks.  They have an online store so some of the fancy block types cost real life money to unlock the crafting recipe, that part kind of stinks but nothing they sell is necessary (and once you’ve bought the block you can craft it an unlimited number of times from resources found in game freely).  If those microtransactions mean the game will continue to be developed and improved then I’m okay with that.  I haven’t found any mods for it yet, and that’s the one place it may fail compared to MineCraft is it may not be modable (or not modable as easily as MC at least).  But for me these downside don’t stop me from enjoying the game.  If you liked MineCraft I expect you’ll like Creativerse.  And hey, free to play means you can give it a try easy peasy.
