Good RPG for kids who like Minecraft
October 5, 2013 11:29 AM   Subscribe

Looking for an RPG for a couple of kids (9 and 10) that ADORE Minecraft but want more role-playing elements (quests, a story, upgrades) in their gaming experience. We've tried mods, but that only gets you so far. We have a PC and an XBOX 360. What do you recommend?

Cube World looks like your best bet.

Best answer: I don't know if you want to start down this path, but my Minecraft-obsessed 8-year old loves the current Pokemon video games as well.

More Minecraft related - he's also having fun with Terraria, which he plays on the iPad.

My son loved Minecraft, and a couple of days ago I saw him playing this game on his Nexus. "What's that?" "It's like Minecraft, but for notepads." He's really into it. As bibliowench mentions, it is Terraria.

+1 for Terraria my formerly Minecraft-obsessed 10-year-old brother recently transitioned to it and loves it a lot.

Response by poster: Terraria and Cube World both look like great suggestions! We're also giving Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons a try at the request of the boys (they saw the trailer on Youtube).

Thanks much!

Costume Quest is great RPG for the Xbox that I enjoyed.

Rogue Legacy might be up their alley.

Driftmoon is more on the Ultima 7 side of things, but is completely adorable and gorgeous.
