voxel.js - An Open Source Voxel Game Building Toolkit For Modern Web Browsers
The Web Dev Zone is brought to you in partnership with Mendix. Discover how IT departments looking for ways to keep up with demand for business apps has caused a new breed of developers to surface - the Rapid Application Developer.
voxel.js is a collection of projects which allows you to create Minecraft-like games in the browser. voxel.js requires a browser which has WebGL support, as the games created with Voxel.js required it to run.
The idea behind voxel.js was to create a framework which is not monolithic but rather composed of several modules. Modules can be installed using Node.js package manager NPM.
The core components of voxel.js are the voxel-engine which is required for any voxel.js games, voxel – the logic that generates the voxel game world and voxel-mesh which takes data from the previously mentioned voxel module and turns it into a three.js mesh that can be displayed as a game.
voxel.js also has several add-ons to complement the above core modules. They range from add-ons which allow you to create simple NPC creatures, to add-ons which can generate a forest or debrit. You can check out voxel.js’s website for more information.
