Cube World servers under attack

DoS attack hits voxel-based indie game

The quirky procedurally-generated voxel-based game Cube World has encountered a bit of a speedbump after picking up some momentum with the gaming community, as the game’s servers have been struck by intentional distributed denial of service attacks (DDoS).

“Initially we assumed the fault was on our side, like our download/updating system could be broken, so we closed the sale and improved our system,” said developer Wollay Funck.

“But it turned out that all these problems were the result of DoS attacks. It seems that someone is trying to systematically damage us and our business. The attacks usually occur during evening/night as soon as we open our store or user registrations. The attackers obviously want to prevent us from selling our game,” added Wollay.

Wollay said that it wasn’t something that he had planned for, and is currently working on fixing the problems.

“Being just a small team (my wife and me), we didn’t expect such things. We just tried to make our game available in its early state in the best possible way, which is on our homepage, where we can directly communicate with the community and provide patches and updates easily.”

Developed by Wollay and his wife, Cube World allows players to choose from different characters, including an awesome Frogman race, and then you’ll immediately be sent out into the world to tackle whatever you desire.

The game’s focus on exploration is really highlighted, as you can reach any point that you see.

You can climb, swim, dive hang glide and even sail from one island to another in order to really search your way around the world.
