New Xbox Indie Block Builder “CastleMiner” Released
Developer: DigitalDNA Games
Platform: Xbox 360 (Xbox Live Indie Games)
Price: 240 MSP ($3)
DigitalDNA Games, the Xbox Indie development team behind a variety of Avatar-based titles, has unveiled today it’s most recent Avatar creation called Castle Miner.
This block-building release is similar to the wave of voxel-styled Indie titles that have spawned from the mega-popular PC Indie Minecraft. Due to the success and popularity of the first XBLIG block-builder release, Fortresscraft, many XNA developers have taken note of the features offered in this gaming niche, and are looking to develop their very own adaptations of the genre.
“You create your own world in CastleMiner. Play online with your Avatar and up to 15 of your friends. Build amazing worlds on a huge spanning landscape with over 200 block types! Mine treasures deep underground in a labyrinth of caves, different every time you play. Build worlds, save them and share them online.”
- Social multiplayer experience with up to 16 players
- Over 200 blocks to build with
- Online world sharing
- Randomized worlds for a unique experience with every playthrough
