The Voxel tag refers to a graphical style and technology used in video games. Voxel-based graphics are created by dividing the game world into small 3D cubes called voxels, similar to how pixels make up 2D images. Unlike traditional polygonal models that use vertices, edges, and faces, voxel graphics represent objects and environments as a grid of these cube-shaped voxels.

The term "voxel" is a combination of the words "volume" and "pixel." By using voxels, developers can create fully three-dimensional worlds with detailed terrain or structures that can be easily manipulated.

Here are some key characteristics of voxel-based games:

  • Destructible Environments Since individual voxels can be removed or added in real-time, voxel-based games often feature destructible environments. Players can dig tunnels, carve out caves, or even collapse entire structures. This dynamic nature of the environment adds an extra level of immersion and emergent gameplay possibilities.
  • Procedural Generation Voxel technology allows for efficient procedural generation algorithms, making it easier for developers to create immense game worlds with unique landscapes, caves, buildings, vegetation patterns, etc. Games like Minecraft, which became incredibly popular for its procedurally generated blocky landscapes made up entirely of voxels.
  • Creative Building The blocky nature of voxel graphics lends itself well to creative building mechanics. Games like Trove give players the ability to construct elaborate structures using different types of voxel blocks. This aspect has sparked communities dedicated solely to creating impressive designs within these worlds, igniting the imaginations of players.
  • Efficient Performance Voxel-based graphics can often provide efficient performance in terms of both rendering and memory usage. The simple nature of cubes allows developers to optimize performance while still achieving visually appealing results.

The voxel tag encompasses various games that employ voxel technology in different ways, providing unique experiences depending on the gameplay mechanics and overall design approach. From sandbox building games like Minecraft to procedurally generated exploration titles like Terraria or survival games like Voxatron, voxel-based games offer a distinctive visual style and interactive environments that have gained popularity among players.
