v0.1.6 is a quick patch to resolve some show-stopping problems with v0.1.5:

  • It's possible to load .vob.png files into separate slots again
  • Linux Users: the game now uses your system's version of SDL by default. This should resolve the missing sound & bad performance issues in 0.1.5. If you still have trouble with performance, trying setting "opengl_blit 1" in ~/.lexaloffle/Voxaton/config.txt

The main new features in v0.1.5 are the ability to add new character graphics to a level, and filter/favourite levels in the BBS LEVELS menu.

See the post for v0.1.5 for more details

There are already a couple of levels that show new character graphics. You need to update to the newest version to be able to see them (check your Humble games page).

:: How to Update

Thanks, forgot to include this blurb.
You can grab the updated version from your Humble Bundle games page (you should have a link to it in your email).

Just install over the top of your previous version and the old save games should be picked up automatically. If you would like to back up your data just in case, you can find it here (replace "Voxatron" for the name of the game in question):

Windows: C:/Users/Yourname/AppData/Roaming/Voxatron
OSX: /Users/Yourname/Library/Application Support/Voxatron
Linux: ~/.lexaloffle/Voxatron

P#3912 2011-11-10 22:18


Thanks great update! Just a question. Will we able to make our own character and play wit it in all levels?

P#3931 2011-11-11 02:12


Good work. Sound works again on Linux.

Could you please make numpad keys shoot in all 8 directions by default ? I reset keys to default out of curiosity and it's not good. Yes, I know how to set it up correctly.

P#3934 2011-11-11 03:06


How do i edit my characters frames?

P#3978 2011-11-11 12:33


I had three quick suggestions for future updates:

Bonus multipliers only go as far as 2x. If you get two multipliers, surely you should get a 4x and not maintain the 2x multiplier.
Another thing is that it would be nice if you got a 2x multi when you got a double-spawn item.
Lastly, I think it would be interesting if, when you shoot at items before collecting them, they lost quality. As in: Triple-Shot after you've shot it 2 times only gives you 80 bullets. 4 times, 60 bullets... Sushi is worth 100. It could be worth 200 and each time you shoot it it would lose 10/20 points.

P.S.: Joypad incorporation is lovely!

P#3990 2011-11-11 15:14


Shooting items is interesting because it pushes them. Sometimes you want to push a bomb into lava, or a sushi away from minotaurs. I like it this way. It can be both beneficial and harmful, if you don't watch where you're shooting you may push a sushi into a big group of monsters.

P#3994 2011-11-11 15:54


This is brilliant! I made a ninja first, Then to be more clever a hovertank. It'll be nice to see what a finished asset editor'll look like, As this feels like a quick patch or test for now. (Asset 6 editing) :D

P#3997 2011-11-11 18:08


@otaviomiguel: It's listed in the game's physical directory (Not the savedata folders) in vox.txt near the end, But in essence I've clipped it for you:

"The 6th vob has a special meaning if the name of the first
item is: _char In this case, the vob is used as the player's
character models for the duration of the level. In this case, the
frames should be roughly the same size as the usual robot
character. [15x15x16]

There are 6 body frames, 5 feet frames, and 1 sword&armour

  1. netrual
  2. shoot (right)
  3. shoot (left)
  4. sword: neutral
  5. sword: swipe 1 (always right handed)
  6. sword: swipe 2
    6-10 feet // animated in pingpong sequence: 6,7,8,9,10,9,8,7
  7. is a frame of only the sword and armour used when the
    player is hit.

All frames should be 16 voxels high."

LATER EDIT: Someone was kind enough to put up THIS Tutorial which explains it a lot clearer. :3

P#3999 2011-11-11 18:18


With 2 monitor on linux with kde with fullscreen the game at the exit change the resolution of the monitor.
Also reset the font dimension -.-'.
i use the 0.16.

P#4003 2011-11-11 18:31


Will you add autoupdate eventually?

P#4068 2011-11-12 01:53


Hopefully not. I like playing 0.1.3 without being forced to update.
Besides, auto-update can go wrong by so many ways on Linux.

P#4119 2011-11-12 14:35


got the game on 11.11.11 and its awesome

P#4256 2011-11-13 13:51


SDL currently doesn't have native support for multi-monitor setups

P#4317 2011-11-13 22:49


Are the Updates always gonna be over the humble bundle? Or do you plan to get your own distrib?

P#4341 2011-11-14 03:34


For those who bought it with the bundle, most likely it'll be only the bundle.

P#4442 2011-11-15 09:06


I'm not sure what causes it, but when using "ijkl" to shoot I keep getting a glitch that causes me to teleport to new rooms without actually completing anything, its rather annoying.

keep up the awsome work!

P#4812 2011-11-22 21:06


Amazing update! :D

P#4892 2011-11-23 22:24


I'm new and I don't have an e-mail, what do I do?

P#4957 2011-11-25 23:14


What do we do if we accidentally deleted the email?

P#4991 2011-11-27 19:31


the same i deleted the email

P#5105 2011-12-04 00:26


You can request new links from humble using the key resender.

Before the next update we'll hopefully have the lexaloffle-side "My Games" page ready too.

In the longer term I'll make a launcher that comes up before the game and checks for updates / lets you adjust video options etc. (but this isn't a high priority)

P#5110 2011-12-04 20:39


Um, I downloaded the game after this update came out, but I still can't make these characters. UPDATE: I just foiund out that I did download this version when I got the game, so never mind.

P#5165 2011-12-08 11:06


I don't have an E-mail link

P#5405 2011-12-18 12:54


When will 1.7 be out? (I know it takes a while to get it working, just wondering)

P#5639 2011-12-29 18:09


Yeah I'm wondering the same thing :)

P#5641 2011-12-29 18:58


You can grab a new email link from Humble Bundle here:


0.1.7's almost ready. It's not super-exciting from a player perspective, but has a lot of changes under the hood which will allow releasing incremental updates more easily. I'm off for a couple of days, but it will be out sometime this coming week and 0.1.8 around a week after that.

P#5655 2011-12-31 01:12


C'mon zep, it's always next week for you...

Can you set up public issue tracker so we could see what you're doing? Or just give realistic estimations...

P#5732 2012-01-11 19:11


You make people cry !!

P#5733 2012-01-12 06:58


There are almost no levels made anymore because people are bored with the same few elements and no monster editor. I expect you to do better than Cortex Command.

P#5736 2012-01-12 16:29


Where do i download
