I feel like I've just been behind these past couple of weeks. Emails piling up, new games still needing to be played, and new posts in our forums needing to be read. At least that's the excuse I'm going to go with for why this Block Fortress trailer somehow slipped under my radar for over a week now, because had it not I would have posted it so fast your heads would still be spinning. Seriously, this game looks awesome.

For some quick back story, we briefly posted about Block Fortress back in January when all we had were a few details and some screens. Essentially, you fly around a map and build up a fortress using various types of blocks, Minecraft style. When you're finished, you'll test out your creation against waves of enemies who are bent on destroying your structure. The coolest part? You can hop in and help your own cause by blasting away at the enemies yourself in a first-person perspective. Check out the trailer.

Going into more detail, Block Fortress will have 3 different modes. Survival mode where you'll need to place mines around the map to earn resources towards building your fortress and upgrading your weapons, a Quick Play where you start off with a huge sum of money so you can build the best fortress possible and then see how long you can make it last before it's destroyed or your character is killed, and finally a Casual mode where you have unlimited resources and can build whatever you like and only send enemies in if you feel like it. There's also an entire crafting system that lets you build new items and augmentations for your weapons, as if everything else wasn't enough already.

I'm really psyched for Block Fortress, especially with how fantastic Foursaken Media's previous game Heroes and Castles [$2.99] turned out, which incidentally is far and away one of the most popular games amongst our community since its release. You can keep tabs on Block Fortress in the discussion thread in our forums, and get ready for the official release which should be March 7th if everything goes smoothly with approval.

  • Cheeseball

    Are those real voxels or just textured models? If this is anything like Heroes and Castles, first day purchase for me.

    • toxiccheese

      Does it matter one way or the other?

      • Cheeseball

        Might affect performance.

  • caaalrb

    Looks pretty rad. Whenever my brothers and I used to play Worms we would spend the first few turns gathering our worms and building "fortresses". I'd love to see a multiplayer option of some sort on this game.

  • Broli95

  • bigred447uk

    How do four people manage to develop a succession of games that are far superior to most of what any of the big companies with endless resources can manage ?

    It amazes me !

  • SmackDatButt

    First N.Y. Zombies 2, then Heroes & Castles, and now this??!

    Foursaken Media, you guys are working too hard. Please come to my house and pleasure me.

    Wow, looks very cool. Will be giving this a try.

  • Rivalsan

    This game looks seriously fantastic!

  • sleb

    Been waiting on this.

  • WarMachine

    It's weird how their games are all over the place. Bug Heroes, NY Zombies, that castle game and now this. I'm a fan of Foursaken thanks to Bug Heroes, even though I did find NY Zombies underwhelming.

  • thiefwriter

    Will this run on a fourth gen Ipod?

    • http://twitter.com/FoursakenMedia Foursaken Media

      Yep :) Will run on all 256 mb devices.

  • DrFu79

    Mojang will have no other option than to buy these guys.

    • Zeldaniac

      Just like Terraria, Junk Jack, Minetest, Infiniminer, Ace Of Spades, CraftedBattle and Roblox.

  • Eidaven

    This looks amazing! I can't wait!

    The speed at which these guys churn out good games is seriously impressive. I'm still knee-deep in heroes and castles.

  • Gabriel.Voyager

    But... But... Is orrible!
    Like the prevoius game of Forsaken, great hype, orrible game.

    • Zeldaniac

      And how exactly do you know it's "orrible?" It's not out for more than a week.

      • Gabriel.Voyager

        If i think it's orrible from the video, i'm wrong, if other people write it's was awesome from the video? Only good opinion, like many good sheep: aaaaaweeeesooome ;)

      • Zeldaniac

        ....what??

  • Smokey956

    Not that good of graphics like minecraft but ill give it a try it looks like a awesome game

  • http://twitter.com/PSNHotwire Hot-Wire

    Oh wow that looks fun!

  • Haunter

    Reminded me of Starforge. Can't wait for this game!

  • Marky

    Foursaken media, you could come out with a mobile open world RPG with a Hero's and castles storyline much much better than Aralon, Ravensword, or whatever you can find on the AppStore! Since Hero's and castles was only 2$, chances are buying block fortress will be the first thing I do march 7th.
