It’s no secret I wasn’t stoked about the last couple of big updates in Survivalcraft. Despite all the amazing & dedicated work by Kaalus the developer, I just wasn’t bothered about the things he added. Yes the terrain tweaks were nice, but they didn’t answer my need for some level of the finite in the infinite and then all the extra hunger & sleep mechanics just didn’t interest me. In the end I drifted away from the game. I took up with Minecraft Pocket Edition again, but even that faded out as my son stopped playing it in favour of spending his summer holidays outside in something called fresh air and sunshine. Freak.
But today’s blog post from Kaalus has me all excited about SC again. In 1.23 he’s adding the start of generated structures! True it’s only hidden grass traps for now, but should the experiment go well we could see NPC villages and even abandoned mine systems in the already impressive caves! All the things that Mojang are still umming and erring about for MCPE.
If Kaalus could just add multiplayer, even just wifi multiplayer for now, Survivalcraft would quickly replace MCPE as my ‘go to’ mobile game, mainly because I could play it with my son and we both prefer SC to MCPE as it offers a more comprehensive and enjoyable building experience. Sorry Mojang, but SC is years ahead of the cute MCPE 🙂
