All is Cubes (Desktop Edition)

A “voxel game” where each block is made out of smaller blocks (one level of recursion).

This is a work in progress; it's my very first project written in Rust, and I am aiming to duplicate and expand on my previous work Cubes. For more information about the currently implemented functionality, see the core library crate all-is-cubes.

This crate is the “desktop edition” that you can build and run to “play the game” on your own computer, as much as there is one right now (you can only admire the scenery, and place and remove blocks). You can also consider running the web version.


Your system must have these installed:

  • If on Linux, then the libraries that Ubuntu calls libxrandr-dev, xorg-dev, libwayland-dev, and libasound2-dev.


By default, running all-is-cubes will open a window with a newly created world containing various test cases (there is no saving yet). Run all-is-cubes --help to find out options, including different starting templates and different graphics modes (including a terminal-based mode).

Stability and versioning

All is Cubes is an ambitious hobby project; many features necessary to be “complete” are not yet implemented, and implementing them will require incompatible changes. During development, library APIs change regularly, and the version numbering will mark these versions as incompatible (e.g. 0.3 to 0.4); there will be no 1.0 version until I am confident that future versions will at least have save data compatibility. However, I have made some attempt to document API elements that are more likely to change in future versions.

MSRV: The minimum supported Rust version is the current stable version. This policy may change after a future 1.0 release.
