Ken Silverman was definitely on to something with that voxel stuff. The man was batty about them before they were big and now, everyone's getting in on the action. The latest is this upcoming Xbox Live Indie Games title called, simply, Block Zombies.
With Minigore on iPhone and Boxhead from Sean Cooper, designer on the original Syndicate, you're well-covered for isometric zombie shooters. But Block Zombies has a bizarre, Lego-like appeal -- as you blast your undead, curve-challenged foes, they scatter into tiny cubes before disappearing into the ether. It looks extremely satisfying.
With it all being based on voxels, there's plenty of flexibility here for expanding on the run-and-gun gameplay. Barricade-building or fort construction has no limits, and would add immensely to the game's depth, if implemented. For now, we won't know the fullness of Block Zombies until next month, but you can get an idea from the clip below:
