Humble Voxatron Debut Update

Add Comment! By John Graham on November 10th, 2011

The Humble Voxatron Debut has gotten a little bit sweeter with more games and an updated version of Voxatron!

Be sure to watch it in HD!

Alex Austin and Binding of Isaac designer Edmund McMillen have added Gish, an award-winning puzzle platformer. Your lady friend Brea has been taken into an underground city and it’s up to you to save her. Luckily, Gish can become sticky, slippery, or solid at will, giving clever players the ability to navigate the sewers using his unique physics. In 2005, Gish won the IGF Seamus McNally Grand Prize and the IGF Innovation in Game Design prize, setting the stage for a new breed of interesting puzzle-platformers in the indie games scene. Check out David's Gish Design Tour for a full breakdown of this classic indie title.

Lexaloffle, the developer of Voxatron, has added a trio of tasty minigames from the studio’s catalog. Chocolate Castle confronts players with Sokoban-like challenges using adorable, chocolate-nomming animals. Zen Puzzle Garden gently tests your ability to rake out an uninterrupted stone garden pattern. And the retro platformer Jasper’s Journeys puts 15 levels of baddies, spikes, and chasms between you and your kidnapped cat.

Also, Lexaloffle has implemented frequently requested features to a new build of Voxatron, including customizable controls and useful filters for the user-made level list. (“#2715 Cyber Adventure” and “#2738 City” are Humble Bundle favorites!) If you haven’t already, go to your download page to check out the newly updated build.

After the weekend, the Humble Voxatron Debut will be drawing to a close. So buy the Humble Voxatron Debut today to get the Voxatron alpha and Gish, and pay more than the average price to receive The Binding of Isaac and Blocks That Matter!
