Cube World (opens in new tab) has come a long way since we last featured it way back in September (opens in new tab) . While there's still no release date, the open world indie RPG with the most luxuriant mini-map in the business has just been given a new in-game video (opens in new tab) , this one focusing on the game's massive exploration element. Crafting, climbing, backflips, magic, stealth, an interminable boss fight and (best of all) sailing are just some of the things that await you in this expansive game that impresses more and more each time we see it.

It's important to note that Cube World is being developed by a man named Wolfram von Funck, because that's a name that can never be said enough. Here's Wolfram von Funck's Cube World in action:

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
