Dogfight Through a Colorful Computer Simulation in Voxel Blast

In a blaze of color and thumping electro, Voxel Blast is coming to Steam on October 22nd. Travelling through a series of neon-bright, digital landscapes, the player aims to shoot down a series of constantly evolving enemies. As situations can change rapidly and spiral out of control, Voxel Blast demands quick reflexes and snap decision-making.

Recalling flight and dogfight simulators as well as the hits of the arcade Golden Age, Voxel Blast comes out of Costa Rica’s Ceiba Software and Arts, a small studio founded this year. The game offers a choice of three ships, each with their own advantages, and four play modes: challenge, survival, arcade, and multiplayer. Full gamepad support is included, and recommended by the studio as the best way to perform the high-speed, precise flight style necessary to beat the game. Voxel Blast’s flight simulation aims to be a challenging experience, with player skill being necessary over blind luck or repetitive action.

Ceiba states that they “have a special interest in the artistic potential of…videogames”, and have accordingly chosen a striking visual style in which to render its complex 3D environments. Visual and gameplay reference points include Tron, Star Fox, and After Burner.
