Will Castle Story Beat Minecraft?

There is a new game coming out, Castle Story. The genre of this game is Minecraft. Yes, that’s a new game genre now, we just coined it. Some people have gone so far as to say that this game could be the 2012 title that kills Minecraft. Hardly.

At least, that is how it would seem by reading the article written by the people who made that statement. Did you see the photo they used? How un-engaging! But it turns out the game looks like it could be pretty fun if you go on Youtube and look at the videos.

While the author did a bad job explaining his statement, there is a point here that can be refined. You see, what Castle Story has is what we all feel Minecraft is going to become. Well, this game already has all of that. On top of this, the construction appears to be easier to. But this seems to come at a cost. The third person nature of the game does not lend itself to the personal intimacy that Minecraft gives to the player. We will be able build and fight more fluidly and with greater range, but it will not be a little world that we live in, and nestle into. And that’s part of the magic of Minecraft.

So, what do you think?
