CastleMiner v1.4 Update Released
CastleMiner makes the third sandbox block-builder available on the Xbox Live Indie Games Marketplace. Developed by XNA studio Digital DNA Studios–creators of a number of best-selling XBLIG’s like Avatar Laser Wars and Avatar Paintball–this Xbox Indie title reflects features found in the ultra-popular PC Indie Minecraft while incorporating aspects not found in the other Xbox Indie sandbox builders.
Recently the developers at Digital DNA recently announced that the anticipated update for the successful Xbox Indie Castle Miner is now available. Version 1.4 adds a host of new features such as a variety of new blocks as well as impressive visual additions and new custom design maps that act as templates for players taking on an epic building project.
Build anything and everything you can possibly think of in this voxel-style block-builder–alone or with friends over Xbox Live. Share your creations with other players and take part in the ever-growing CastleMiner community.
While many Xbox Live gamers would prefer just to play either FortressCraft or more enjoyable Total Miner: Forge, CastleMiner offers it’s own unique experience within the same genre.
CastleMiner is available on the Xbox Live Indie Games Marketplace for 240 MSP ($3), and there are additional updates and chapters planned for the title.
