The much-anticipated, long-simmering-in-development-hell Cube World is actually coming out, according to its developer, who said today that the exploration game will be out either this month or next.
“Cube World will be released on Steam!” wrote developer Wolfram von Funck on Twitter this afternoon, linking to the game’s new Steam page. “Hopefully around the end of September/October 2019.”
Cube World, a voxel-based action-adventure game inspired by Zelda and Minecraft, has generated a great deal of hype since it was first announced in June 2011.

Now, after years of sporadic updates and silence, Cube World is finally imminent. “Yes, owners of the alpha will get Steam keys,” von Funck added.
