Recommended Posts

In the wake of Minecraft there hasn't been another voxel style open world game that's been able to replicate it's success. When you think about it, Minecraft really did come out of nowhere, and from a janky game made by one dude with no modding API came one of the largest gaming communities in history. So, how do we prepare for the next big sensation that the kids will be into tomorrow? Well we can't be sure, but staying tuned to this thread's a good way to make some educated guesses!

As new games in the vein of Minecraft come out everyday from places like Steam Greenlight it can be hard to keep track, so we'll let you know what the good ones are below. To always be in the know, bookmark this thread and check on it whenever you feel like knowing what the hot new voxel games are! If you have a suggestion/know a good one, let us know in a post in this thread and we'll add it! So without further ado let's get started down our journey of finding the next Minecraft!

This promising Minecraft style space exploration/building game has been in development for a while now and it's matured significantly in the last few months. It's still an early access game on Steam but it runs on anything and is pretty fun, has some cool spaceship stuff!

While bearing many gameplay resemblances to Minecraft (and making no subtleties about it's inspirations) Terasology is in active development and looks REALLY good, that is graphics wise. If your PC can run it then give it a shot!

TUG intends to be a Minecraft style game with neat looking smooth voxels and gameplay inspired by many common mods such as Thaumcraft. For $10 on Steam Early access it's playable, but keep in mind it's still a very WIP alpha.

One Last Day is a Steam Greenlight game for Mac, Linux, and PC that is a post apocalyptic voxel game set in a zombie apocalypse. Not exactly original, but it looks fun and well done overall with some cool survival elements.
