A roguelike developer's diary.
Please let me be the first to coin the term minecraftlikes.
Another one: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2011/06/01/the-sword-in-the-stone-king-arthurs-gold/
does unreal world count as a minecraftlike.I think those three make up the 3 legs of the genre.Survival for urw. Building for mc. exploring for terraria.
"Minecraftlikes" gives the game far too much credit. Sure, interface and mechanics are getting ripped from Minecraft left, right and centre, but I believe the core concepts behind Minecraft and its offspring come from other games, e.g. Dwarf Fortress.
Everyone in this thread: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2011/06/14/cube-world-looks-chunky/#more-62139 seems pretty happy to use the term, despite e.g. Infiniminer predate Minecraft.
