This game has been quietly chugging along through it's alpha. They're soon adding doors, containers, crafting, mobs, etc. to the mix, and they've recently discussed their idea behind core gameplay. It seems like a mix between Minecraft, Trove, and a bit of something new. I like that the concept moves past basic building, and provides some general tiered goals. Time will tell, but I thought I'd link this to anyone interested.
