Hi.

BlockDue is a SkyBlock 2D experience. Like Minecraft, on a floating island.
At the start of the game, there is a tutorial like time challenge.
Accomplish your offerings as fast as you can. The faster the better score.
Then you can survive and thrive and be creative. What kind of farms are you able to make?
There are some hidden chests that will help you.

V.040 - Save & Load your progress.
V.041 - Animal power.
V.0.42 - Stage 2.

All feedback is very welcome.

This is the first playable version.
Now it's a skyblock time challenge. Can you reach top 10 ?
The game has some more stuff added. It's up to you to find out.
Would be happy if you post some screen images of what you create or find out about the mechanics.
I know of a lot of bugs I will work on.
All feedback is very welcome.

Hey, i tried your game.

Hit boxes for blocks where sometimes off. I could only hit them from one side of the block.
Crafting was bit confusing for me at first. These recipes would dissapear when i moved mouse away from question mark. Maybe place where recipes are shown and where you do crafting could be in different places. Also having to hold e to keep it open was bit annoing.
Game told to make coal but i couldnt figure out how to use furnace. I tried putting lava bucket there with other elements but nothing seemed to happen.
Couldnt see anything during night. I know you are supposed to make torches, but it would be nice to see atleast where the character is.
I think it would be nice if objects name would be shown somewhere when hovering with mouse.

Water physics were bit odd :D

Hi.
Thank you so much for your feedback.
The thing with the hitbox is that you need to stand a bit away from the block you want to break. It's to make sure you don't set a block on your self.
Yes, the recipes disappear when you move your mouse away from the question mark. If you already put some items on the table they will reappear.
I first show the crafting recipes on the side of the table but felt it was cleaner to show them in the table.
But I did as you suggested and there is now a text on top of the table saying the name of the item. (Next version)
Coal... I can see that you don't play Minecraft. If you put wood in the upper right and down in the furnace, one wood will burn the other one to coal.
Could not see during the night... As soon as you hold a touch you have light. At this stage, the game is a time challenge. If you don't have a light before the night, I suggest, restart and go again.
Yes, water physics are a bit odd. There are some parts of the water physics I want to work on.

I guess you don't know how to make a cobblestone generator, (See you have obsidian in inventory on the image).
Water on flowing lava creates stone.

Again, thank you for your feedback Yrbiax.

New update:
V.0.42 - The Stage 2 update.
This update is focused on adding a lot of new achievements that culminates in a new offering challenge.
There are now two scoreboards. Stage one is the easy part. Are you able to finish stage 2?
Then you have a good chance to reach the top 10. It's not an easy task, but do your challenges and you will be on your way.

Ass always, all feedback is very welcome.
