Cubic Castles is a newly-created sandbox game that combines beauty, platforming, and world-building into one spectacular package!

Development began with a friendly manipulative environment that would satisfy a player's desire to craft, mine, and build. It expanded with a the addition of wide variety of decorative blocks, then mischievous interactive block were introduced to add the fun of parkour and RPG into the game experience. Player customization allows for a truly individual experience. A unique collection of costume pieces, from nerd glasses to top hats and bunny tails, allow the players to express themselves. Already in development for future inclusion are: monsters, disappearing platforms, a broadened range of environment controls and other fun obstacles from the platforming game pantheon.

There are many different ways to experience this virtual world. Many players create 3D challenges: parkour runs, puzzles and 3D platformer games. These they then play in and use to challenge friends. Our players hold competitions and challenges as well as build collaboratively. Some players choose to create mini role-playing worlds. With our rooms-within-realms gameplay structure, multi-layered, infinite worlds, filled with details, can be created easily. Talented block artists have also been making elaborate, epic buildings and other fantastic structures worthy of architectural praise.

Free-to-play model:
Cubic Castles is a free-to-play game that is gratifying and agreeable. There are no build times, no dual currencies or the feeling you need to "buy to win." Players are rewarded with gifts of the in-game currency, Cubits, when they mine. Purchase-only items are limited to special premium pieces. Nearly all of the items in the world are craftable with resources you can mine for free.

Multiplayer aspects:
The game has an MMO structure, so players can easily share what they make and explore what is being created by others, as well as build cooperatively. To create a safe environment for everyone, there is a profanity filter and parental controls. Parents can choose to have their children exposed to as much or as little of the online experience as they would like. An account can be set up with a separate parent password to control settings, with a range of limits up to zero chat and friendship making. Plans to add emoticon-only conversation for younger players are alsoin the works.

Cubic Castles is an open-ended game packed with unlimited building, playing and exploring possibilities. This game will be one you can play on nearly any device with the same account and with all the same features. This is a fun, easily accessible MMO that anyone of any age can enjoy with endless potential to expand and grow in the future.
