Test it, is really interesting... You can do 3d graphics based on Voxels ans animate... I think for do PixelArt can be very interesting, can load objects, paint, sculpt, animate and render... I have to test in more deep, but I like a lot, and free.

Great little app, thanks for the link.

Love voxels, I wish more games would use them nowadays. I remember an old game, "Comanche" I think, a helicopter sim that had a very nice voxel engine. Blew me away at the local computer club. Comanche used proper voxels though, points in space not cubes. Voxeltron is the only fairly recent game I know using (Minecraft landscape aside) voxels in an engine?
Cheers,

Ian.
