Voltron: Cubes of Olkarion, developed by Switzerland-based studio, Gbanga, was the grand prize winner of the first-ever Universal GameDev Challenge.
Voltron: Cubes of Olkarion is a one-on-one, real-time-strategy game boiled down to a single sideview screen, with fighting and puzzler game elements. The action-packed title is based on an episode in the Netflix original series DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender, where the Olkari people were forced to build a single gigantic cube superweapon that tried to destroy Voltron. In the game, both sides build single weapon cubes – the so-called Cubes of Olkarion – and stack them to towers in the middle. Each cube has different attack and defense abilities. Some of these cubes can launch projectiles, others are placed for defense, others can spawn units that attack the opponent. The gameplay is all about keeping a cool head, thinking creatively and making quick decisions during battle, as one mistake can let the whole tower of cubes collapse.
Voltron: Cubes of Olkarion launches soon on Steam.
