ORIGINAL POST

This is my take on a Minecraft clone! This game was built with Three.js and JavaScript Modules, Web Workers and Service Workers.

NOTE

This page will not be updated until I release Survival Mode.

Coming Soon: Beta!

How To Play

Click on the crosshair to lock your pointer
W A S D to move around
Scroll to change block
Space to go up
Right click to place, left click to break

UPDATE 12/1-4/2020

Baconman321 has collaborated with me on this project and has cut the loading time of chunks in half! Minor optimizations have also been made.

12/3/2020
I have also reintroduced realistic lighting and optimized shadows to the game, making cave exploration, terrain, and buildings more visually interesting. A better offline cache system and versioning is in the works, along with sprinting (which I may warn you, is quite buggy at the moment). There is also a new menu you can access by pressing `. This menu allows you to change the material type of all chunks, and will greatly improve performance on lower-end devices.

12/4/2020
The game has been optimized further, and the "plastic" look has been removed. Offline support is being worked on.

Q and A

  • The game is REALLY slow. Can you make it faster? Press ` (backtick) to change the graphics setting.
  • How do I change block? Scroll up and down.
  • It's so hard to look around. A: Make sure your pointer is locked(click)
  • It's so hard to place/break. A: It is a bit difficult to break/place on a touchpad. Try a mouse.
  • Why is it taking so long to place/break blocks? A: Please use a different computer.
  • Why can you jump so high? A: I'm lazy
  • Why is the sand biome all slabs? A: I need to fully implement half blocks

@RileyMears Oh my! Are there any errors in the console? I can help

RileyMears

@tussiez there are no errors? how long does it usually take? i might just be too impatient for it to load but the loading bar doesn't move

tussiez

@RileyMears Hmm. It has been working for me.. try again today.

Baconman321

@RileyMears We are often working on the game, so you may have been on at a time where we were changing code (often resulting in a syntax error or something of the sort).

tussiez

@Baconman321 That's often the case :)
Try again later, most game-breaking bugs are fixed pretty quickly
