GameplayThe adventure is yours to mold! This is actually the whole concept of this game: create the world you like, defend it and craft wonderful and unique items.
The game starts randomly generating a world for the player to explore and modify, having at his disposal 3 basic tools: a pickaxe for minning, a sword for combat and an axe for woodcutting.
There are common resources that can be found all over the map, but there are also other resources that are only encounted on specific parts of the map.
With these resources, the player crafts items, armor and weapons near a crafting station.
Players may encounter different kinds of enemies, like slimes, zombies, etc. Some are actually found depending on: time, zone, random events or player interaction. Players can summon bosses to slain and loot the rare items and a big sum of cash.
Another perk in the game is completing goals, like killing a boss or finding a weapon, for whick the player will be rewarded with a random NPC to populate the structures built.
