About the Game

Vox is a voxel based, action, adventure and creation game with a big focus on player created content and in-game customization on all game objects, such as characters, items, weapons, equipment, monsters, NPCs, world terrain, scenery, quests, etc.

Come and explore your imagination!

Features

Vox features a completely customization in-game voxel engine that is used to power all the content in the game, this means everything from characters, monsters, items, weapons, flowers, trees and even the world itself is all made from the same basic voxel objects. This means that as a player you are able to edit and customize all of these items using the in-game 'voxel editor'. Don't like the look of the fancy new sword you have just looted? That's fine just open it up in the voxel editor and change it to how you want it to look! You can also decorate your house and the world with as much custom scenery as you like all made using the very same voxel editor. All the objects and content in Vox is there for you to play around with and customize to your heart's content.

Main features of Vox:
  • Full 100% character creation. Use preset parts, or completely build a character from scratch, block by block.
  • Generate dynamic and random worlds that are fully destructible, every single block can be edited.
  • Different and distinct world biomes: forest, jungle, desert, snowy mountains, tundra, floating islands, graveyard, frozen wasteland, and more planned...
  • Weapon/item/equipment customization.
  • 'Zelda' style 3D targeting and combat camera lock-on system.
  • Play in first person or 3rd person camera modes.
  • Mining and world exploration to find hidden treasures.
  • Advanced rendering shaders including deferred rendering, SSAO, shadows, dynamic lighting, depth of field.
  • Villages with NPCs and a questing system.
  • Crafting system.
  • Character progression and leveling system.
  • Monsters, bosses, dungeons.
  • Monster editor.
  • Quest editor.
  • NPC creator.
  • Multiplayer modes (co-op and PVP).

As Vox is still in alpha expect these features to change and more functionality to be added as the game progresses during development. Content and story elements are going to be added throughout the development of Vox and the ability to share your custom content and upload/download new content that other players have created will soon be made available.

Steam Big Picture

Quotes

"If you like Minecraft you will love this!"

"Vox is taking player created content to the next level. It's refreshing to play a sandbox game with such a high level of customization and I found myself lost in the depths of creating my own custom character for hours, before I even dived into the main game mode."

"While still super early and not without its problems, Vox is already showing lots of promise and continues to develop at an extraordinary pace, I shall be keeping a close eye on this one."

Community

Vox is built on community support and the Community and Workshop features of Steam are used to enhance the Vox experience even further.

Featuring the amazing artwork of Dracula Fetus for the Steam Trading Cards, emotes, profile badges and the profile background rewards.


Achievements and Steam Workshop integration will be added at a later stage as well as stat tracking and item sharing via Steam.

Early Access Review
NOTICE: This game is a work in progress. In buying it you are investing in further development, which you will benefit from as the game is updated as certain development milestones are reached. Being an Early Access title expect random crashes and bugs. Ignore all neagative reviews complaining about the bugs, apparently some people don't understand what Early Access means.

Vox as its title suggests, is a voxel-based sandbox game in the same category as Infiniminer and Minecraft. The game uses a more rastarized art style as apposed to the more blocky style of Minecraft. The game engine uses modern shader effects and lighting in ways Minecraft doesn't without a GLSL Mod. Where Vox differentiates itself from Minecraft is its focus on adventure and role-playing. Instead of starting the game as one character which you cutomize with skins, you create a new character the way you would in most other RPGs and give that character a name. You then create the world you want to enter and you're given some control over the biomes and overall size of the worlds you create.

Each new game starts you out in a town populated by named NPCs. Chests with loot litter the nearby countryside, whcih gives you some nice starting gear. Some of the chests are monsters, so be aware of this when looting them. Combat uses a Zelda-style lockon which helps in aiming your attacks, especially when using the bow and arrow. Sound effects at the moment during combat are minimal, though this may change throughout the development cycle of the game.

Vox has a fairly detailed crafting system which has some similarities to Minecraft, but goes a few steps further and also allows you to make improvements to certain times like tools and weapons. Like Minecraft you smelt ores you've harvested into bars which you then use to craft items. You can also harvest plants and harvest wood. You can also edit any item in your inventory at virtually any time.

Sound wise, Vox is baren with just a single repeating upbeat tune that drones on during the day, and a more melodic and slow tune that plays at night. Day and night cycles go by rather quickly, hopefully this will be fixed, and nighttime doesn't seem to change the game much. Its not like Minecraft where nightime becomes hazardous for the player if you haven't built shelter. This may also change in the future. I'm hoping for more variety in the music rather than the SNES-esque tune that plays now. Over time it can become annoying and you'll find yourself turning the music volume down most times.

Overall, Vox holds immense promise so I recoomend that anyone who likes Minecraft please spend some pocket to get this game and help contribute its further development. Additionally, I much give the developer kudos for making the engine for this game open-source. We need to see more of this.

He's fixed the problem where framerates start to take a dump 24/7. Well at least it fixed for me.... Still has room for improvement but fixing the frames was a good first priority. Need more things to do and gameplay still needs improvement instead of slapping monsters all day.

Early Access Review
I have been playing the games on Win7 64bit and have had very few issues. It has crashed a few times but not enought to make me stop playing the game. The crashes abort your current quest but your inventory and the world inventory stays intact. So if you stored stuff in chests its still there after the crash.

The customization of the character is the fun part. This allows you to create an avatar of your choice. Although as you get armour, helmets, boots and gloves they will cover your customizations. I added a thumb to my hand that stuck out but when you added a glove that disappeared.

Crafting is detailed and you can make a lot of equipment, weapons, armour, potions and even furniture.

This is definitly worth the money and have already gotten value for money.

Well done, keep up the excellent work.

Early Access Review
This is a very promising game that is pushing the boundaries of what power we give the players over the content.
This by turning pixels into a cube unit. The 3 dimensional manipulation of items is quite amazing.

I do not recommend this game for those of you that want a set storyline or seamless gameplay, being an early access game
there are still quite a few bugs that need to be worked out.

But I will recommend this game for those of you that love experimenting with new and interesting engines.
Because this is a really fun and interesting engine.
