    Hello CubeCrafters and Merry Christmas!

    Wow, it's Christmas already? Well you know what that means... it's time to announce that Christmas has come to CubeCraft! This year we've got a lot of content for you. We've added back one of our classic Christmas games, our famous present hunt is back and wonderful Christmas Cubelets filled with chilly loot are back. Want to learn about this update more, read below!


    present rush is back.jpg

    For one of the biggest additions to this Christmas release. Present Rush is back for 2019! Wow... it's been a while, it's been sitting on the top shelf getting dusty, but now it's back for everyone to play and enjoy over the Christmas period! So if you're not familiar with Present Rush, it's one of our classic Christmas games. It's a game of speed, collection, skill and agility.

    The aim of the game is to collect the pieces of fuel from the middle arena and bring them back to your present production zone to feed your generators. As the generators are filled with fuel they will start producing presents. The player with the most presents at the end of the game wins! Remember - the presents don't count until they fall into Santa's bag at the end of the production belt.

    Powerups will spawn within the arena to help you collect the most fuel as well as help you ruin the chances of other players collecting precious fuel. Other players also have the ability to punch and steal your fuel from you, and you should avoid taking fall damage - you'll drop fuel as a consequence! You'll have speed from the start of the game, but the more fuel you're carrying, the slower you move! You may think collecting the fuel from the arena is simple, but you're sadly mistaken. Overtime the arena decays, making it harder and harder to collect the fuel. If you fall off the arena, you'll lose all the current fuel pieces you're carrying.

    lobby and present hunt.jpg

    As usual with our seasonal content, our lobby has changed to fit into the Christmas feeling. Covered in snow and presents dumped everywhere, you'll definitely be in the Christmas spirit now! So what are you waiting for, explore our Christmas lobby!

    If you don't want to travel and explore round our lobby, sadly you're going to need if you want awesome rewards. Whilst our lobby is filled with Christmas joy, it also has 25 little presents scattered round it. Introducing our Present Hunt for 2019! You'll need to find all 25 Christmas presents round our lobby to win an exclusive Win Effect and a Christmas Cubelet! Happy hunting.

    Once again for 2019, we've brought back our epic Advent Calendar! Join our lobby and visit it. If you haven't seen it already, this NPC was added into our main lobby a couple of days ago to give players prior notice that a calendar will appear soon. If you don't know how an Advent Calendar works, you've been living under a rock, but if not, let me example. Every day between the 1st and 25th of December, you have the choice to claim prizes. You need to join our network on that specific day and claim the reward for that day. You will also get extra rewards for consecutive days, such as getting 5 days in a row. Better get counting! :D
