    ...yep, I'm working on a game (with help :D)

    It's basically like Minecraft and Terraria, but... it's a lot harder (but there's better weapons too - there's a sword that does over 1200 damage!)

    Also it's called Spirabox

    I'm not sure about this. But a game that has an estimated expection of 2-3 years is gonna be very difficult to develop. Assuming there's no gameplay footage yet. Neither do I know if you had previous experience in game development.
    Please don't underestimate the time and effort needed in game-development. As I've underestimated that in the past too. Just taking a huge timeframe to work easy on it may not reach your expectations.

    I don't want to say 'don't follow your dreams', but please make sure you have worked on smaller projects before. So you know what it takes.

    'expect to see this on steam somewhere 2021-2022' If you've had no experience making 'games' like this before (and you haven't, from what you've told me), then I feel like it'd take a lot longer than three years.

    If you really have no experience on these kinds of projects, make a small game, and then work your way up to spirabox, or get some good programmers to pursue your idea.
