Hello, New Updates!

        I am Archi (or Charlie if you prefer), a developer for BackToBasics, wanted to say hello and tell you about the recent changes that have occurred in the game!

For starters :
We have Completed the inventory system so, now items can be put in each slot  and can do their jobs.

Full Block breaking system has been put in meaning now blocks break comparative to the kind of items you have equipped.

Full placing of blocks is implemented as well if you have the blocks you can place them.

Updated how the character looks.

Added a day night cycle full with moon and sun, (no lighting yet)

I will be finishing up trees tonight and tomorrow start work on full world generation which means, Mountains and caves this is likely to take a couple of days.

Block world generation is done, meaning you will be able to find different kinds of blocks all over the place

we have 3 kinds of dirt and grass blocks to make it feel more natural(slightly different shades), new blocks such as sand and gold have been done also,

To come soon will be :

World physics meaning things like trees fall and move  this excludes water for the time being(water is some tricky physics and haven't quite decided how that will be done how smooth it is.

New/more Tools pickaxe axe and shovels etc, new armours and blocks ,

Full lighting.

Weather Systems.

I think that is all there is to it , thanks for reading,

Few changes on our development blog

Many thanks!

Well firstly I want to thank you all for your support which makes us happy to continue the game - today we have hit 6000 views and it's quite impressive score.Because of this we have also decided to make few changes on our development blog and announce few things too!

About us - small, yet important update!

Today we have finally updated about us page, the things that can be noticed - we have created official Back to Basics Twitter account on which we will post news related to our indie game so be sure to follow using this button!

We won't be using "Seafox Technologies" or any other name for our group right now we just stay us "independent". Also the crew changed a little bit but we will introduce ourselves in "Meet the team" video soon.

Mailing list - stay in touch!

You probably noticed that there is a new panel on the sidebar called 'Subscribe to our mailing list' and it's much different than 'Follow by email' widget. After typing your email you will be added to our special maling list which will be send monthly to you. What it will contain? News, updates, contests and... some secret stuff just for our mail subscribers so be sure to put yourself there too!


"Oh no! Not advertisements - they are making blog unreadable!" - not that time guys. Today we want to introduce you Google Ads which aren't blocking the valuable content and they are related to it. But why do we need them? Of course clicking on the ads give us some funds for the development - that's why we decided to add them. Hopefully they won't disturb you - if you want to give us some feedback about thme please send email on our new mailing address - backtobasicsgame@gmail.com

On the 7000 views we are going to:
  • Introduce you a user-friendly donation methods

Work suspended


I am sad to say that the work on "Back to Basics" is currently suspended. Until we will find a new programmer this status will remain. Hopefully we can deal with it soon. I don't want to give you a hope for now because I don't know when we will get back to it. However, be sure to check on our blog from time to time as if something will change in that case we will post here immediately!
