Vintage Story, a beautiful survival and building game on Linux

Posted by , | Views: 3,281

Vintage Story is a beautiful survival game that started as an idea for a mod for Minecraft, based on the popular modpack, Terra Firma Craft. It is developed by Anego Studios.

The game is currently still in early access. Development is happening rapidly, with a stable update coming out more or less every other week, with plenty of experimental builds available in between.

Vintage Story, however, can be best described as a middle term between vanilla Minecraft and Terra Firma Craft, offering a robust survival game mode with immersive crafting, all wrapped up in gorgeous voxel graphics.

Recently the game had a big update that added cooking and animal husbandry, both well thought out and satisfying on their own but which will still get updates, revisions, and expansions in the future. You can find the full list of features here.

Vintage Story can be played both as a single-player game, or run on a server for a multiplayer experience. It supports Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Finally, you can find the game for $12.50 at https://www.vintagestory.at/.

Sounds interesting, has a good few graphical features and general gameplay features not in Minecraft, an actual modding API and so on. Added to my list to keep track of.

Good first article! Had never heard of it

Wait, so is it standalone or does it depend on Minecraft?

I definitely enjoy it! It's not as hardcore as TFC which is great. By the way, if you'd like to see how it pays, I have a series going.

Thank you for reading and for the compliment!

I know, right? You're welcome.

It's a standalone game, no Minecraft required.

This looks like a clone of Minecraft. How are they going to get sued by Mojang/Microsoft?

It only looks like it, but the game is different enough. Every time models and such get updated it gets further away from Minecraft.

Minecraft itself was based on another game. I always find it odd when I see comments like this. Block-based games have been around long before Minecraft.

it may look similar to Minecraft but the gameplay is quite different.
