Costa Rican developer Ceiba Software & Arts has announced that Voxel Blast will be releasing for PC on Steam on October 22, 2015.
The mission of Voxel Blast is simple: Enter the simulation and stop autonomous, rogue agents from wreaking havoc on an otherwise peaceful system. Choose between the Taurus, Orion, or Aries ships (each equipped with unique weapons and abilities), and dive deep into cyberspace — leaving a trail of neon particles in your wake.
Enemies in Voxel Blast are always evolving — leading to some truly epic boss battles. Being able to quickly evaluate (and adapt!) is critical if you want to survive for more than a few minutes. For example, taking on a small group of snake-like creatures can quickly spiral out of control when they combine their powers into menacing monstrosities hell bent on taking you down.
Voxel Blast supports both keyboard + mouse and gamepads. The developer recommends the latter; in their own internal testing, gamepads turned out to be the way to go.
- Three well-balanced ships with different features and weapons:
- Taurus: H.E.A.T. Cannon and Tracer Missiles
- Orion: Plasma Cannon and Particle Torpedoes
- Aries: Twin Miniguns and M.I.R.V. Missiles
- Four game modes to choose from:
- Challenge (hone your navigation skills)
- Survival (endless combat)
- Arcade (action and story)
- Multiplayer (enjoy exploding your friends into voxels)
- Space combat based on skill rather than pattern memorization
- More ships to unlock with custom weapons and different strategies
- Unique gameplay: Arcade shooter meets dogfighting
- Flat-shaded art style based on abstract sculptures and futurist art
- Gripping electronic score
- Gamepad support: Control layouts for flight sticks, Xbox controllers, keyboard-mouse, and full player customization
