The Humble Voxatron Debut

The Humble Bundle Website now offers The Humble Voxatron Debut, a bundle composed of a single game, Voxatron, which is described as a "voxel-based, old-school-gone-new platform shooter." The game runs under Windows, OS X, and Linux, and is being sold in the same manner as the previous Humble deals: Customers can select their own price, and designate how it is to be divided between the developer, publisher, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and Child's Play. The game, which includes its own level editor, is currently in alpha, but all future updates will be included.

Yes, I get the gameplay > graphics argument. I still fire up BG2 occasionally, and I'm still playing various indie/humble bundle games that all have their various non-AAA graphics setups.

However, I still blame Minecraft for the veritable flood of new indie games that don't even bother to do graphics that would look out of place after about 1990. I'm looking at you, Terraria!

Voxels are still implemented primitively enough that Voxatron makes a bit of sense, I am just annoyed that my Humble Bundle track record will be interrupted because I literally could not tolerate playing this game.

Oh well, between this and the semi-fake voxel engines out there, maybe voxels are the future of graphics... again.
