Earlier this year, Exatogames pitched an idea on Kickstarter for a Minecraft-like FPS game. Combining the imaginative construction elements of Minecraft with the fast-paced action of a modern FPS, Guncraft began its free open beta testing in July. Last month, the team made its way over to PAX and strategically obtained a booth right next to Minecraft.
In an interview with Joystiq, Guncraft creator John Getty said:
"Our main purpose of getting a booth next to Mojang is to provide an open forum for comparison. We want to show the people exactly how different we are from Minecraft. We've always wanted an avenue to voice our opinions about 'rip-offs' and how we aren't one. Just as Notch borrowed from Infiniminer, we borrowed some of the construction and aesthetic elements of Minecraft and put our own unique spin on them.""We do also want to talk with Mojang, so that's another reason we are neighbors. I really hope nobody thinks our primary purpose is to mooch off Minecraft, but I'm sure there will be some that do."
Now, the game is on Steam Greenlight, where it has achieved 1% of the necessary positive ratings required to make its way onto the platform. It still has a long way to go for a release on Steam, but you can pre-order the game directly from Exatogames for a limited discount price of $10.
there was minecraft, it sold good, many played it(i didn't), that's the end.
why some would thing they could turn it into a shooter and it would sell?
and they say it's not a rip-off? is it a rape-off?
and the trailer! what are you thinking, that this is funny? not even for a ten year old.
