It takes a lot of nerve to take on Minecraft at its own game, but little studio Wonderstruck (made up of ex-Lionhead and EA folk) look like they’ve taken a serious shot at the king with Boundless. It’s a massively multiplayer take on the blocky sandbox genre. Controlling brightly coloured alien explorers, players dig, craft, build and fight with critters across multiple planets. While expensive, players can band together to form organised towns or cities, and even build portals to other worlds, expanding their domain. It’s out now after years in early access and the launch trailer is below.
