Years ago I made a joke on Twitter about 2D voxels that eventually lead to my game 2D Voxel Madness. Obviously this is a nonsensical idea, voxels are volumetric pixels. If you remove the volume dimension then they’re just pixels. I find that idea funny and I think people that get it do too. By and large, commentors on my GreenLight page for 2D Voxel Madness
don’t get it. While the game isn’t anywhere close to being GreenLighted, the continued comments that voxels can’t be 2D provide a lot of entertainment. Nearly every day it seems I get at least one person calling me out for 2D voxels in a pretty serious tone. Here are just some of those:
As many have said, there is no such thing as a 2d voxel. I don't think you understand what the word voxel means.
You do realise that 2D "voxels" are ... just ... friggin' pixels, right?
How are these in any shape or form Volumetric Pixels?
Why not call this game Pixel Madness or Sprite Madness? Because that would make a lot more sense, as there's no such thing as a 2D Voxel.
As many people have already said, 2D voxels are pixels. :P
apparently someone is not aware what "voxel" means
2D Voxel is a pixel
Voxel = Volumetric Pixel = 3D Pixel.. what the heck?
Do this guy even know what voxel means?
Um... how can you have a 2D voxel? A voxel is the 3D equivalent of a pixel...
Not a single voxel in your game. There is no such thing as a 2D voxel. No
I think you meant "sprite", not voxel.
I don't think you know what 'voxel' means.
While the use of the word Voxel is evidently wrong (Voxel=3D element)...
A Voxel is a strictly 3D concept. It's not a stand-in word for "Hurf durf blocks that can be destroyed like in minecraft".
That said, this looks pretty much as bad as what I'd expect from anyone dumb enough to call their game "2D Voxel Madness" without even bothering to google what a Voxel actually is.
This has NOTHING to do with voxels. Downvoted for misleading name
You can't have a 2D voxel. A voxel is a VOLUMETRIC PIXEL. A 2D entity has no volume. o.O;
Yeah. I also came to comment that a "2D Voxel" is a pixel. A voxel is a pixel with 3D volume.
2D Voxel... you mean a pixel?
A "voxel" is a representation of THREE-dimensional space! God damn it!
2D Voxel? Really?
Are these people just missing a good joke or are 2D voxels just not as clever as I think they are? I’m not sure, but I’m rather enjoying the comments on GreenLight for a change.
