Vintage Story, the moddable survival and building game had a big update

Posted by , | Views: 2,493

Vintage Story might look a lot like Minecraft but it's a very different beast and it just recently had a rather big update.

I must admit, the many differences of Vintage Story do make it sound quite appealing. As it stands, Minecraft really is quite a ridiculously basic game in comparison. I won't list all the major differences, you can see for yourself more about all that here.

Have a peek at one of their more recent trailers:

The recent update has added in: improvements to their mod support; a survival hand-book that's available in game to show you various recipes (no more looking stuff up on a wiki); butterflies to make the world a little brighter and more alive; creatures no longer just vanish if you kill them, allowing you to harvest resources from them; UPnP and NAT-PMP discovery so players can now open their game to the internet and tons of other tweaks.

If you're tired of how simple a lot of these sandbox games are, Vintage Story might just be a good one to take a look at.

You can grab a copy from Humble Store, itch.io or the official site. They don't seem to plan to go on Steam, you can read more about their reasons here.

It seems nice. The price seems a bit problematic for me(coming from Brazil where the currency is not great right now) will keep an eye on it.

It started off as a Minecraft mod (TFC), so no it`s how it should be. I loved TFC and that`s why I got myself a copy, being standalone fits it well.

It's great, i've had fun with my previous play, and i'm only waiting for the next big thing to start again.

If you understand french, i did a few videos on my channel : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1p6FnDOM5Ec

Really tired of all the voxel-based games! We get it, Minecraft is popular! Who cares?

That's a very surface-level perception of things. This one sets itself apart by trying to be a much more realistic survival experience where you don't have a magical workbench that just turns stones into swords. Minecraft spawned a whole lot of very creative and fun games, and now when its in MS hands independent alternatives like this one are great to have.

Bought this a while back.
First try was a bit rough.
May give it another go.
