King Voxel announced

Phillip Meyer of indie studio Lecker Klecker writes in to announce King Voxel, a Zelda-alike where the world and quests are procedurally generated and the graphics consist entirely of cel-shaded (what else?) voxels.

The premise:

Lord Hellion has conqured and transformed the kingdom of Voxelot and kidnapped the queen.  You must gather 8 orbs to gain entrance to Hellion’s castle for the final battle.

At first glance, it looks an awful lot like 3D Dot Game Heroes, but the cel shading helps distinguish it visually. Gameplay-wise, the author states that it is “basically a ‘reimagined Zelda 1′” taking place in a procedurally generated world. You can definitely see the influence in the game’s trailer:

Meyer is currently seeking $25,000 in funding for King Voxel on Indiegogo. King Voxel will be Windows-only, and is tentatively planned for release in Fall 2013.
