When we mentioned Lachlank's Minecraft style game being developed for the Amstrad CPC, it was so popular that it ended up on many other sites (without us as the source) and generally people were surprised what the 8-bit machine from the 80's could achieve. Called ' AmsCraft ' and written mainly in C using SDCC/CPCTelera but with assembler to draw blocks, the developer has today released a second update footage which shows off the new title screen, initial music, scrolling between scenes and block placement.
The developer has told the community, that the world consists of 65,536 x 65,536 x 10 blocks, and the idea is that the world will be programatically generated with the user's modifications overlaid. But there is a long stretch to a final release, as he has mentioned there is a lot of work to do yet. But from what I've seen so far, I'm mighty impressed. Can you imagine spending hours on an Amstrad, playing what looks like a top down Minecraft? Perhaps that will come true!
