Rising World is another of the many survival games to have come up between 2010 and 2016. All which follow the same typical Voxel based structure and survival element. Although like Minecraft this game is not without its own unique twist that fans love.
The main idea behind Rising World is the the continued focus on creativity. The game has over 200 elements and blocks that can all used for various crafting options. Although you will not start off in the world with all the resources you will need. With your very first task being that of which you must venture into the wild and collect materials. You can then use these materials to create stronger tools and shelters that will protect you. The sky is the limit in this game and the developers encourage creativity. So what are you waiting for? Let’s get creative.
JIW-Games boasts that the game has many features that make this game so great. These include randomly generated worlds, meaning no two games will be the same. A huge and complex underground cave system that will keep you busy mining for hours. The ability to place custom images within the world, including your own face if you want. A multiplayer system in which players can join their friends and craft together is present in Rising World, which is of course is important in open world survival, as who doesn’t love playing together? Although if you are wanting the best experience, you may want to rent Rising World server hosting. This will allow you and your friends to connect to a world that is on a dedicated 3rd party server. A third party server allows you to concentrate on playing, rather than having to worry about hosting.
So what happened to JIW-Games after Rising World? Well little news has come from the small gaming company since about 2014 when the game dropped. Many suggest that the game didn’t sell enough copies and the developers gave up. Which may be the case as if you look at steam charts you can see the game only peaked at 374 players. This could be why we have never heard from the developers and why they stopped updating the game. But if you still have and interest in this game then it is still available to buy on the Steam store. With the game often being on sale, so look at for this game on the steam sales.
The ultimate craft and survive game that has stood the test of time, Minecraft is still the king in its genre. In Minecraft you have procedural generated worlds much like in Rising World that you must explore and scavenge within. Using the resources that have been collected you can then forge better tools and weapons. The main difference between these games is that in Rising World it is lacking enemies to create a challenge within the game.
Rising World does have its improved graphics over Minecraft but as you will find out playing it, MC isn’t about the graphics. The game sucks you in that much that you forget about the visual quality of the game. You are able to get texture packs for Minecraft to help improve the graphics from many sites across the web for free.
If you prefer more structure to your game than Rising World then check out Reign of Kings. In this craft and survive title you join a server and then search for resources found in trees and by killing animals. Using these resources you can craft all sorts of items to help you rise above the other players, take control of the central castle and then collect taxes from the others.
Reign of Kings is great if you like the idea of becoming king and don’t care how ruthless you be getting there.
