First of all, I've read so many posts that read Cube World is "a total copy of minecraft" "minecraft rip off". CW is NOTHING like MC except the cubes. In fact, CW was inspired not only by MC, but Diablo, World of Warcraft, Legend of Zelda, and so many other RPG games. Notice how all of those games are RPG???? CW is NOT a sandbox game, you can't build ANYTHING, but just because you can't build doesn't mean that CW isn't better. Personally, I like CW better than MC and so does almost everyone who has played the game. For those of you who don't know what CW is, its a 3rd Person, voxel, RPG game that aims to be a good combination of many RPG games. CW Alpha was released this June (2013) and it cost 15 euros ($19.56 american). Check out the website here.
Now lets compare CW vs. MC:
Things Cube World and Minecraft have in common-
Infinite world generation
Blocky structure
Online Multiplayer and offline singleplayer
Monsters and passive mobs
Low price
Cave systems and biomes
EXP Levels

Things Minecraft has that Cube World doesn't-
Sandbox building
Breaking blocks
A less laggy multiplayer and singleplayer
A bigger team of creators (faster updates)

Things Cube World has that Minecraft doesn't-
Ridable PETS and monsters
Classes and races
Power levels
Weapon Customization
Skill learning
Hang gliding and sailing
Character Customization

Q:Will Cube World become more popular than Minecraft?
A: Not now in the Alpha stage, but later on it probably will.
Q: What systems support Cube World?
A: For now, just Windows but it will come to Mac and Consoles soon.

Before you say that Mojang will sue Picroma (creators of CW),
1. Notch actually advertised the game.
2. Wollay (creator of CW) used to work for Mojang.
3. Wollay and Notch are friends.
4. Notch offered to set up a shop for CW when the site was being attacked with DoS attacks.
Don't believe me? Google it. Check Wollay's twitter.

Minecraft losing players
My theory is that Minecraft players will discover this new game and "migrate" over to it. Most youtubers will too, as the Yogscast has already started playing it. For all of you Minecraft lovers who are sucked into the game, believe what you want, but I am just expressing my opinion.

Sorry for this extremely long blog and if you actually read it all, congrats.
I hope you guys check out Cube World and maybe buy, its a super fun game.

The main reason Minecraft is so popular is because it lets people create gamemodes (e.g. mods, servers, modpacks, minigame servers, custom maps, texture packs). If you don't believe me, how many of you have played through your whole Minecraft time playing only on a pure vanilla server or vanilla survival/creative? No one.

Although. The main reason minecraft got so popular. Is unlike most games. Every texture feature and code can be edited. Allowing players to make the game how ever they want.

And how do you know that? Cube World already has over 4 million copies bought in less than a month, that's pretty amazing, Minecraft has gotten boring, and Cube World has just started, and blew the world's mind. There are even amazing mods, and the game brings so much freedom and adventurous features. It's so much simpler to make a server too, and so easy.

If CW ever lets people make mods for it, that's when it'll get really popular.

Tbh I like them both equally and would LOVE to try Cube World, but I wouldn't "migrate" over to it. People can enjoy both games.

I agree. A game does not have to die out for a new one to start
Planet Minecraft
