Volve is a html5 sandbox prototype similar in essence to Terraria. Although it is my primary game project, it will likely never be finished due to it's out of control ambitions, but who knows.

Firefox recommended, other browsers are untested.

Controls:

WASD - move
Space - jump
Shift - accelerate forward

Left click - use item (e.g. place block)
Scroll wheel - change item
Hold Ctrl - edit background when using block items

1/2/3/4 (hold) - zoom camera
O/P - enable/disable fps graph

---

Known problems:

Keyboard doesn't work
- cause: for some reason the game frame doesn't get focus if you click the canvas. Click the text below the game to gain keyboard control.
Text is visible but everything else is black/white.
- cause: unknown. Seems more likely on Google Chrome.
NPCs may push the player or other NPCs through blocks.
- cause: Collision methods are unfinished.
FPS number sometimes goes above 60 or is inaccurate.
- cause: It's just the way browsers work apparently (requestAnimationFrame). Not much I can do about it, open the FPS graph to see the delta time fps of each frame.
