Have you ever wanted to play an absolutely massive sandbox game where you can create anything you want with voxels? Oh wait, you’ve played a game like that before? Okay, so maybe Minecraft fits that bill perfectly well, but many developers out there have taken inspiration from that mega popular game to iterate in their own unique ways. Voxelnauts is one title that was born of such inspired iteration. In this game, you can do basically anything you could do in Minecraft – build awesome structures, explore vast worlds, and the like. However, unlike that game modding is not only accepted but expected and made incredibly simple. It’s also made with integration with VR headsets in mind right out of the gate.
This MMO sandbox RPG’s greatest asset, in my opinion, is that focus on modding friendliness. From what the developers discussed, they will make tools readily available to plays that they themselves use in order to modify the game. Of course, you don’t need to be a content creator to enjoy Voxelnauts. Another way to enjoy is simply to explore the vast metaverse. Don’t like the planet you’re on? Just jump in a space ship and fly until you find something more to your liking.
Finally, it’s worth noting that though VR is a main selling point, you won’t be required to wear a headset to play the game. Right now the plan is to support the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, with more possible in the future. Voxelnauts is asking for $200,000 on Kickstarter for a release on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
