Blockscape is a voxel-based sandbox game, inspired by Minecraft, where players can explore vast worlds, containing such geographic features as mountains, caves, rivers, trees and much more. Although the game is still in its infancy, the one-man development team of the game, Jens Blomquist, intends to provide an infinite number of computer-generated worlds.

While building a new world, the size of the blocks used is entirely changeable, allowing players to build anything and everything they desire, right down to individual pieces of furniture for home interiors.

The game will also allow players to start servers of their own and play with up to 256 of their closest friends.

Blockscape is currently in phase 1 and in open beta. It was released on 4 Jul, 2014.
