'''Voxelstein 3D''' is a free homebrew game, which based off [[Wolfenstein]] series for setting. And also it is great example of using voxels instead of polygons. It was released only as beta and it was abandoned, although the developers said much about continuing of the development.

More like a demonstration of the only level, than an actual game, it contains only a little of plot. However, its pretty clear that we play as B.J. Blazkovicz from [[Wolfenstein 3D (DOS)|Wolfenstein 3D series]], living as a prisoner in a castle which is supposed to be Castle Wolfenstein. Using alms, and, what's more important, fully destructible environment (made of millions of colored block, called "voxels", instead of classic polygons for rendering), your mission is - to escape from that.

You are free to hit almost any map element and remove voxels from that, thus completely destroying nearly the full map, even enemy bodies.

To redice the size of archive from original 26.1 MB to 17.7 MB (because this site doesn't allow upload files bigger than 20 MB), I did not an easy work. Firstly, these files were excluded:
 
 
/Animator.exe<br>
 
/wolfsw.zip/AUDIOHED.WL1<br>
 
/wolfsw.zip/GAMEMAPS.WL1<br>
 
/wolfsw.zip/MAPHEAD.WL1<br>
 
/wolfsw.zip/VGADIST.WL1<br>
 
/wolfsw.zip/VGAGRAPH.WL1<br>
 
/wolfsw.zip/VGAHEAD.WL1
 
 
These files aren's used anywhere in the game itself, so the game will work without them as good as with.
 
 
Then the result was packed to [[ZIP]] and [[ZIP]] converted to [[7Z]] to reduce more size additionally. As VGMPF doesn't allow [[7Z]], the archive was packed on the ZIP file again and then finally downloaded. This is triple archive, but it solves three problems - redusing the size, getting the acceptable archive format and making the unpacked game working as good as original archive with all the in-game places.
 
 
'''Don't unpack the wolfsw.zip file - otherwise the game won't play IMF and WAV files! Only unpack "Voxelstein 3D (W32) v1.09.zip" and "Voxelstein 3D (W32).7z".'''
 
 
If you want to get the orignal archive with these files (but it will be larger for 8.4 MB), get it from the official site.

Voxelstein 3D is a free homebrew game, which uses Wolfenstein series for its setting.

More like a demonstration of the only level, than an actual game, it contains only a little of plot. However, its pretty clear that we play as B.J. Blazkovicz from Wolfenstein 3D series, living as a prisoner in a castle which is supposed to be Castle Wolfenstein. Using alms, and, what's more important, fully destructible environment (made of millions of colored block, called "voxels", instead of classic polygons for rendering), your mission is - to escape from that.

You are free to hit almost any map element and remove voxels from that, thus completely destroying nearly the full map, even enemy bodies. Despite the level is small, it contains a lot of secrets, easter eggs, and there are many path to beat it. When there is no feature to heal or to save/load, you can just restart the game, because it won't require much time to achieve the same progress.

Unfortunately, when there were plans to make is as a complete game, the developement didn't go any further from a prototype stage. That can be a reason why actually all the music and nearly all the sounds are just emulated ones from Wolfenstein 3D game, shareware version of that in particular.

Music

There are only two "normal" tracks used in game - Searching For the Enemy as the level music and End of Level utilized as endgame tune. Another 9 are in shareware release of Wolfenstein 3D, packed with the game to use sounds from it, but weren't used. However, they were added into playlist.

Also, for chaingun picking, the sound from Spear of Destiny (DOS) in a form of OGG recording was used. Because it can be considered as a music track, it was also added here into playlist.

(Info)


Voxelstein 3D uses music from the shareware release of Wolfenstein 3D (DOS). IMF tracks were extracted using DarkOne's software and renamed as WLF instead IMF to make their speed correct in DRO players.

Also, there is an OGG rip of sounds, added in Voxelstein 3D and absent in Wolfenstein 3D, and digital VOC files of screams, shots, etc. in Wolfenstein 3D shareware, also ripped with FloEdit as WAV files (though most of them weren't used). Rare example of game using 2 types of digital audio files, because using one is simpler for game developers.
