Cube World servers under attack

Cube World

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.

    i can tell you this game is worth it! a mate of mine and I bought the game when it came out last week and i have been playing it none-stop! really fun game to play and the game is still in its alpha so there are going ot be loads of additions to it as the weeks and months go by…

    Bought the game but at the moment it’s just a massive grind but what they have and what the dev has said he’s going to do with it, is short of amazing. I would say buy it now since the dev has said that the earlier you buy it, the cheaper it will be which was how minecraft was selling in beta.

    Maybe I haven’t played it enough to “find” anything. But ye, the base is solid and all the stuff the dev has confirmed to be added will make it the next Minecraft-like success.

    I was actually thinking that $20 was a bit much :/ Maybe not… I will see later on. Can’t seem to register atm…

    When it goes into a new stage (alpha->beta->release) it will go up every time until the final price at release. I predict the final price to probably be $30.

    =/ $20 was really already pushing it for me… I am all for paying for the experience, but we aren’t talking extensive design etc etc etc here… I shall think it over!
