At first blush, Staxel looks a heck of a lot like Minecraft. The voxel art style and ability to craft aren’t simply copycat measures, however. If we need to make comparisons, then it’s fair to say far more inspiration is drawn from Harvest Moon.
In Staxel, players are invited to live in a lovely little town and befriend their neighbors. You’ll be able to slowly advance your farm from a tiny garden into a full-fledged farm with all sorts of crops. The atmosphere is laid back and friendly, just what you’d expect from a game focused on farming, cooking, and making friends.
As of right now Staxel is planned for release in 2016. You can help the team out by upvoting their Steam Greenlight page.
