FortressCraft vs Minecraft?

A lot of people have demanded this compare and since FortressCraft was only 240ms points on xbox live  i gave it a shot.

I’ve seen some trailers and videos so I had some expectations. First thing i notice is that the graphics are pretty nice, proper shaders, parallax mapping and good shadows. The view distance is lower then Minecraft, but it got a more smooth transition. Since it’s the first chapter it’s pretty in a creative state right now, but it’s  probably going to get a pretty strong foothold when the other chapters get  released, the xbox community is pretty damn big after all. Sure I can complain about water being somewhat of a hazel to put out and some other minor issues, but it’s still worth the price. If you can convince friends to give it a try you will have a blast.

However a lot of people calls this a “Minecraft Ripoff” but this is most certainly not the case. It feels almost like some religious movement trying to convince you that Notch is your god. But seeing how much Notch has benefited from borrowing ideas from Infiniminer, i don’t think it’s really unreasonable for other people to borrow ideas from him. I’ve also heard that FortressCraft was inspired by Dwarf Fortress.

But if you call FortressCraft a ripoff, then Minecraft is a ripoff to.

Do i think Minecraft is a better game? Yes, at least for the moment. FortressCraft will probably catch up as the console gamers gives it a try and other chapters is released.

    Maybe you should spell check this shit before you post it. For fucks sake almost any browser has auto correct. How can you fuck up the word hassle that bad? Hazel is a color fuck.

    Thankyou.

    I’m sorry, what?
    So I’ve been looking into this lately, and from what i can see, Fortress-craft is just leeching Minecraft’s player-base.

    Fortress-craft is a rip-off of Minecraft
    so Minecraft is a rip-off of Infiniminer?
    Bullshit.
    Minecraft took over a dead game and completely refreshed it.
    Minecraft has made millions more players/buyers than ifiniminer ever could have.

    Fortress-craft *ISN’T* taking over a dead game and completely refreshing it.
    No, Its just copying it to, once again, leech Minecrafts x-box owning player-base.

      Minecraft didn’t “Refresh” Infiniminer. Infiniminer just never got popular. Notch basically took Infiniminer, added some stuff, got it popular, and boom. He’s a millionaire in a month Meanwhile, the creator of infiniminer is living an average Joe life, and barely any people know of his game. And Notch even said, his own words, that Minecraft is an Infiniminer clone.

    Minecraft didn’t ripoff infiniminer it definitely took a lot of inspiration from it but it did not rip it off.

    Infiniminer was a game based around trying to get the most precious metals the fastest.
    Mincraft it a sandbox game that doesn’t have a real end goal.

    You gather resources to build tools that allow you to get more resources in Minecraft.
    In Infiniminer you have everything and you just gather materials as fast as you can.

    In Minecraft you spend a lot of time above ground.
    In Infiniminer you spend most of your time below ground.

    Minecraft started development after Infinimer stopped being updated
    FortressCraft released while Minecraft was still on the rise and only on PC possibly in order to leach off Mincrafts future possible consumers on the Xbox

    Fortresscraft has very few gameplay differences than Minecraft creative. Most of the differences are in the graphics and graphical options.

    Howdy! I realize this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.

    do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily

    It’s a little like Monopoly in a way, without all the paper bills and
    playing pieces. While technology will always continue to move forward,
    the classic era will always remain the “golden age” of gaming.
    There is a point-based system outside of the game to
    which you can change your avatar’s outfit, bowling ball, and other styles.
