The developers of upcoming voxel-based sandbox RPG Cube World, Picroma, are posting a series of updates to their website discussing the many weapon skills each class will use in the game, starting with the Warrior. I want a plushie of that green thing. I don't even know what it is but I want to give it a hug. Please?
