A voxel-based building game seen from an RTS perspective that will charm you with its graphics and smooth gameplay
The voxel genre is a particular type of genre that you either love or hate, with no room for anything in between. Many games have adopted this art-style, and while some of them are mere copies of already popular titles, others strive to make a name for themselves sin the gaming market. One such example is Kubifaktorium , a voxel-based RTS game that features extensive resource gathering and crafting features.
You start with handful of people
From what we could make from the game, the premise is always pretty much the same: you start with a handful of people, and then you start gathering natural resources, including food and building materials, which you can craft and eventually develop your tiny village into a massive city.
While that may sound simple enough, the focus of the game is on the voxel graphics, and the extensive crafting system, which lets you evolve from the basic wood and stone to more elaborate mechanized systems based on engines and conveyor belts.
Not just your casual game though
Because no voxel game is truly casual, you also have to face off hostile forces that try to destroy your villagers and steal your resources, so building defensive buildings and turning villagers into fighters becomes a must.
Kubifaktorium gives you all the information you need about your game environment, including your units’ needs and what they are up to, so if you are a control freak, this game is the right one for you.
In the end, the game can be both casual or more engaging, depending on the game mode you choose and your approach to the overall mechanics.
A great Voxel and RTS hybrid
Kubifaktorium has all the things a game needs to be entertaining: fun graphics,, complex game mechanics and a high amount of replay value. This makes it a great alternative if you love other similar games, such as Trove or Minecraft.
