A "voxel" engine

Post by rokit boy » Mon Apr 02, 2012 7:59 pm

Sorry for all the thread making but has anybody got a voxel engine? It is basically 3D in 2D, Every shape is made of voxels, they are normal pixels drawn on screen which turn round the direction you're facing.

If you don't get me... Play ace of spades.

Voxel literally means volume-pixel, so pixels are to vector art as voxels are to polygon art.

Some isometric games use a terrain system that is essentially voxels, but I don't think that's what you mean.
I like voxel stuff but I can't really see much happening with it within Löve.

Ever since Minecraft there seems to be some confusion about the meaning of "Voxel". This is a voxel engine too:

Unity3d can be used to make voxel games.
