Voxatron is an interesting indie game that uses voxels and looks ‘retro-awesome’

Oh boy, with the re-appearance of Unlimited Detail, we search for similar games and found Voxatron, an indie voxel game that looks amazing. It’s quite a simple game at heart — mostly just Robotron set in a 3d destructible world with goofy creatures, and will feature a custom software rendering with soft shadows, built-in sound and music synthesizer, as well as playback & post game recording.
Voxatron is an arena shooter that takes place in a world made of voxels (little cubes, kind of). Everything in the game is displayed in a virtual 128x128x64 voxel display, including the menus and player inventory. If you look closely, you can sometimes see the inventory (score/life/ammo) casting a shadow on some of the objects on the ground.
Voxatron is slated for release later this year on PC, Mac and Linux. Lexaloffle promised to release a single-arena preview version before release, so stay tuned for more!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
