Minecraft was inspired by infiniminer (it came before minecraft, and if I remember correctly Notch mentioned it as one of the inspirations for Minecraft.)
But yeah, I get the feeling that both of the other games are going to be getting un-nice knocks on the door from Mojang's legal department (or person). I mean, they both have little attempts at anything remotely unique; they quite literately look like Minecraft with a texture pack and some UI tweaks.

I'm following two myself.

http://blockaderunnergame.com/Projects/BlockadeRunner.aspx

Cube World could be okay. I'm a little iffy on it.
Blockade Runner though.. now that thing has loads of potential.

The 10 posted at the bottom of the page before this. However its debatable if they are better or worse than Minecraft. They include (in no particular order)...

1. Mythruna
2. Craftworld
3. InfiniMiner
4. Blokworld
5. Cubelands
6. Uberblox Habitus
7. ArdorCraft
8. Fortress Craft
9. Ace of Spades
10. Manic Digger

Uh, not Ininiminer. That came well before Minecraft.
I mean, we even played it.

And just so you guys know, that Blockade Runner game is likely to be closer to Infiniminer than the rest of these, in part.
In space, digging on some asteroid, gathering materials.. except now, you're gathering materials to build your spaceship.
Seems real cool. Couldn't really call it a clone of Minecraft anyway, but certainly an inspiration for something greater.

Kind of like how Minecraft was to Infiniminer, though this time around it's hopefully without all the shortcomings and utterly ridiculous dilly-dallying.  :P

Blockade Runner sounds like it could be good. I'll check it put next year when I'm done with Skyrim. (I'm only 100 hours that's hardly enough time invested.)

Man, someone with a capable computer should run an Infiniminer server.

Why? It's pretty much minecraft with crappier graphics. And, shockingly, even less meaningful content. As if that was even possible.

Yeah I'd like something like this. We had a lot of fun with that game and it would be a fun throwback.

The only issue I can see is that a lot of the .exe files have been lost. We tried finding the original a year or so ago but it was gone. I think Gauph has a later build of it on his computer, but that was over a year ago so who knows. But we probably don't want to play the original anyway. We can probably find a later build of it somewhere on the net, no problem.

I ran a quiet round of Infinifortress yesterday for a bit of fun but we got bored 'cause we need more players for the sake of competition.
I'll go post some infos in the Infiniminer thread that just got bumped.

I'm shutting the server down over the holidays. I won't be here to watch it so best to leave it off.

(no one is playing anyway)

So... maybe later everyone will feel minecrafty again. :)

I was pretty disappointed when learned that the server would be down. I had plans.

I've already named a few landmarks and places. The central desert is the Farouk Desert, and the spawn area is called the Dune Docks. The river that separates the desert from the plains and hills to the west is the Copperhead River. That mountain range that borders the Farouk's southern half? The Ev Mountains. A road stretches across the desert, east and west. To the west, it leads to a place called Quarrytop, where Gauph and I have made our residences. To the east, it connects to the much more developed Base Camp.

I hope nobody dislikes the names.
