A new title – which is heavily inspired by Minecraft – code-named Stone Shire could make its way onto the Wii U in the near future. Developed by two-man team Finger Gun Games, Stone Shire will lead its players straight into a voxel-based fantasy game with promises of many dwarves, elves, hobbits and goblins roaming the land. Players will be able to choose their class, from pointy ears to hardened feet, but you won’t be able to level your characters. Instead, you’ll seek just rewards from discovering new items, your individual creations, and world exploration.
Created in Unity, Stone Shire is planned for the Wii U, though Finger Gun Games may reach out to 3DS players if it garners enough success on the eShop. But the sandbox-style game will have to face off competition with the recently announced U Craft by Nexis Games, a straight up Minecraft clone. Various screenshots are available on the developer’s Facebook page, while the video embedded above shows some rough footage of the game. Let us know your thoughts on the fantasy-based Minecraft title in the comments below.
What’s going on here?…
Are the Indie Tribes forming an alliance to help our empire?…
My sensor reading indicate that the indies are making Minecraft-like games for the Wii U eshop.
No they arent
please shut the fuck up e_e’
The butthurt door is to the left human…
So why the hell are you in it? e_e
Are you still putting down payments on your wiiu, or did you finally get enough money to afford a console? XD
Ignorant human. He’s had his Wii U for months.
You do that first butthurt.
No they arent
I guess I’ll take this opportunity to mention that I was accepted as a wiiU developer a few days ago. I’m just a one man team though so my projects are limited
Nice, I hope you help the empire in unique ways…
Yea I was gonna submit my current project to steam so there won’t be much that’s unique about it. Future projects will be wii U only though and I have some ideas.
Nice! Making all of the elements is going to be tricky, but you’ll learn quite a bit. Experiment and have fun, heropon!
Yea I’m well into my current project. All of my major coding is done.
I hope they go way over the soon-to-be-doomed-because-Microsoft- minecraft. I want more intelligent mobs. I want goomba’s too. And blocky versions of those creepy skeletons that came out at night in Ocarina of time. That would be awesome.
I really hope they do something cooler that differentiates it from minecraft. Like a wider variety of more intelligent mobs. And random hidden dungeons. Possibly a mode with a story with dialogue.
Like 16-bit versions…
This is still not as good as minecraft. Microsoft! Why did you buy the developers?!
Yes it is
Lets be honest from those pictures this game looks aweful.
The developers came to Microsoft with a offer, windows 10 well power all windows devices (PC, phone, Xbox) when that happens the windows store well be across all those devices. Minecraft probably seemed like the perfect game to go across all 3 platforms. It makes a lot of sense. And again it was majong that came to Microsoft with the offer
“A heavily inspired Minecraft title”
um.. you probably meant to say “a title heavily inspired by minecraft” right?
Yeah, thanks. :3 It’s been edited to make the sentence a little clearer for readers.
It’s the same damn thing
No she didnt
Seriously! What the hell is going on here?
whoop u craft has a competitor lmao
No it doesnt
I have a bad feeling about this.
No you dont
What is happening? Well I am not interested to buy such game
Yes you are
This just sucks. Wii U EShop is exactly like the iOS/google play store now. It has its gems, but it’s also reached the pout where there’s starting to be clones and shovelware
Oh no. EShop has shittons more worthy software and yes, I’ve seen Google Play. It’s utter shit.
Minecraft. A game so simple a monkey can craft it.
No it cant
Dude i can literally create a close replica of it on my pc, it’s not hard it’s literally blocks e_e it’s so simple it’s sad
I enjoy the enthusiasm but I am put off by the whole “games that are basically just Minecraft”
As is the iTunes store is overly saturated with them we don’t need them polluting the Wii U…
More knock off Minecraft options for me. I for one am happy with this development.
You shouldn’t be happy. We’re missing out on the real thing… :p
Actually, what we’re missing out on Minecraft is the potential case of boredom within five minutes. lol
As long as one of these minecraft clones includes some form of multiplayer, then I’ll be happy.
As much as I love how these indie developers are supporting the U, I don’t want the eshop to be filled with shovelware.
Minecraft sucks most boring game ever with boring music
You know I think they are missing a huge opportunity here..
Ok imagine minecraft that has more than one location. Imagine traveling to different worlds, with each world having different terrain and different enemies. Imagine space travel, traveling to moons and comets etc…
I know it sounds ambitious, but man that would be one amazing game…
I honestly hope there is more voxel detail to this game at launch that what we just saw. Or at least, texture packs as free DLC.
ibetrollinubehatin, can I get a troll please ? You baby ! ;)
