Voxelands is a sandbox construction game based on Minetest, which was inspired by earlier “voxel world” games such as Infiniminer. Gameplay puts players in a fully destructible 3D game world where they can place and dig numerous types of blocks, items and creatures using a variety of tools. Inside the game world players can build structures, artworks and anything else their creativity can think of on multiplayer servers and singleplayer worlds across multiple game modes.
Voxelands takes some inspiration from role-playing games, and therefore tries to keep in-game action in-game, rather than having special commands that occur outside of the world. This has lead to things such as home flags, incinerators, and throwable “teleportation powder”. In the same vain, a character creator has been added with several million variations built-in that allows players to customise how they look to others, while several hundred craftable clothing items allows the player's looks - and defense against creature attacks, cold weather, drowning, and the vacuum of space—to be easily changed inside the game world.
As it stands now, Voxelands has almost 500 types of blocks, plus several hundred crafting items, tools, and clothes, along with dozens of mobs. Some are decorative, others structural, and more are interactive; allowing for a great variety of construction to take place, while players work with the natural world along with farmed and crafted items to defend themselves and their ever growing bases, cities, and empires.
