Jolly voxel-based isometric shooter Voxatron is now available, in its alpha form, as part of an Indie Humble deal. Not a bundle, just the offering of this one game, which is debuting today, at a price of your choosing. After this, it will be available for $15. I’ve been playing for a couple of weeks and reckon it’s worth every cent of that pricetag, but if you want it cheaper, now’s your chance. The graphics are lovely, as you can see in the new trailer below, but it’s the completely destructible world that most often made me want to applaud with delight, either dramatically when pillars collapsed or in the smaller detail of walls chipping away during fights. Imaginative and fun, this is a fine deal.
The actual game isn’t quite as odd as the trailers imply. It’s a shooter with a sense of adventure rather than an action-adventure, but it’s enjoyable stuff whatever you call it and should only get better with time. For your money, you’ll also receive access to a level designer, all future updates and an upcoming monster editor, so you can make horrific and adorable voxel villains.
