Voxel Ville

by Jordan Kniest - 48 Hour Compo Entry

In Voxelville you can build a house with a few Blocks in Minecraft-Style. Then you can upload it in game and other players can watch it.

Controls in Build Mode:
WASD - Movement
E - Inventory
Left Mouse - Break
Right Mouse - Set Block
Scrollwheel - Switch active Block
1 - 9 - Set active Slot

== UPDATE 1 ==
Bug Fixing:
- Sounds
- Falling Glitch

Little side info: I had actually planned that you can rate homes. Unfortunately I had not enough time. Maybe it comes later.

Just a note: Chrome gives me a "could be dangerous" warning when downloading.

Very neat minecraft-esque game. Kept finding myself falling off the world though and getting stuck in an infinite fall loop.

Very cool felt like I was playing minecraft classic. The shadows looked nice however I felt the day/night cycle moved a bit too quick.

So I guess it's pre-alpha Minecraft from way back in the day, minus the terrain. Not very creative, but impressive that you did this in 48 hours.

I made a house. The name I put in there was House. I think that the idea is pretty cool. I liked being able to build a house and then put it into a world where anyone else who played the game could see it. I thought the mouse controls were a bit too sensitive.

i tested this and it works on OSX. well done

I made a house but it sucked so I did not upload it :) This works very well. The control is snappy.

Impressive that you were able to make a server back-end with such limited time!

The controls could be given in-game. Nice implementation.
Side note: I fell off and then fell for long enough that I hit the kill plane and respawned before I could get back onto the game area, soft-locking the game.

It says it because it isn't downloaded often, I'd ignore it.

I like how you got it to connect people's houses into a city, very nice.

Nice idea, not very innovative though.

The cool aspect of this game is the upload feature. The building itself works, but is like a very simple minecraft clone. I still enjoyed building a house, though. Well done, lads!

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
