In The Lab: Block Story

Welcome to In The Lab, Geekenstein’s livestreaming show where we play the upcoming and recently released games to see if they’re worth your time and money. Guess what? Alex and David are playing another Minecraft clone. That’s right! We’re playing Block Story, the game that finally answers the questions: “why doesn’t Minecraft have RPG elements and monsters to fight?” You know, the question we’ve all been asking constantly.

Block Story drops you into the voxel based world where important crafting ingredients make the world glow like the rainbow. Where identical copies of NPC that come in two distinct art styles give you fetch quests before you get the basic equipment. Where pixel based enemies come out of nowhere and barely animate as they attack your face. It also has leveling and tech trees. It sure is weird.
