As of April 2022, Voxie Tactics is in Open Beta. It's a tactical role-playing game (RPG) built on blockchain technology. The game is free to play, too.
Players can collect 3D pixelated NFT characters called voxies, defeat enemies, collect pets and weapons (soon!), and earn cryptocurrency and NFTs. And if you're just starting out, the game lets you use default in-game characters for exploration and battles, so there's no need to buy Voxies immediately.
Launched in March 2021 and developed by AlwaysGeeky Games, Voxie Tactics says that it's the first tactical RPG on the blockchain. The game is built on Ethereum and uses the in-game currency VOXEL. It's playable on PC only, with plans to release on Mac in late 2022 or early 2023.
To play Voxie Tactics, you need to have playable, 3D voxel NFTs called Voxies. There are only 10,000 unique voxie "buddies," each with their own attributes, race, class and rarity.

Voxie Tactics has less than 500 members on r/VoxiesNFT, around 60K followers on Twitter and no existing Discord server.
Compared to Axie Infinity's 957K followers on Twitter, 104K redditors and over 700K members on its Discord server, Voxie's following and player community is less impressive. But let's take a look at the gameplay and see how it matches up.
The gameplay of Voxie Tactics is a turn-based RPG genre made popular by the PlayStation classic game and namesake Final Fantasy Tactics.
As we've mentioned, the game is free to play. There are default characters you can use to start your adventure. If you want to buy your own Voxies, they're available on secondary marketplaces.
You need to create an account, using a unique username and password, entering an email address and birthday. You also need the MetaMask wallet and browser extension.Image source: Voxie Tactics
To start playing and collecting, here are the basic steps:
Players earn the native cryptocurrency VOXEL token as they interact and play in the game. VOXEL tokens will be available for purchase in-game or on several exchanges, and users can buy the NFTs required to play on secondary marketplaces, like the official collection on the NFT marketplace OpenSea.
VOXEL is the native in-game currency. It's used as the in-game marketplace token for purchasing equipment, items and resources. The fully-diluted allocation of VOXEL tokens is 300,000,000, with 2% of the tokens released on a weekly basis, which ended February 2022. There is a circulating supply of 64,021,081 VOXEL currently.
At the time of writing, VOXEL is valued at $1.32 according to CoinMarketCap.
There are multiple pairs of VOXEL tokens, including VOXEL/USDT, VOXEL/BUSD, VOXEL/BTC and VOXEL/ETH. The token can be swapped on multiple exchanges. For more help getting VOXEL, read our VOXEL buy guide.
It looks like VOXEL may not be available to purchase on an exchange in the US.
You can still purchase VOXEL by using a decentralized exchange (DEX) instead. Decentralized exchanges are web applications that run on blockchains like Ethereum and allow users to trade any asset directly with one another.
Decentralized exchanges (DEX) are unregulated and run using autonomous pieces of code known as smart contracts. To use a DEX you must interact with the blockchain directly, which is not recommended for novice users. Please learn about decentralized exchanges first if you're unfamiliar.
You can follow the same process when you want to sell your tokens, or come back to this page to see if they can now be traded on an exchange in the US.
There are two main ways to earn in this game:
Each voxie is a fully animated 3D NFT created from voxels with playful animations and emotes. A voxie has 20 attributes that make them unique with varying rarity. Each voxie can be one of 10 races and one of 20 classes, which carry distinct characteristics and abilities for in-game use.Image source: Voxie Tactics
There are also collectible NFT pets, with rewards for collecting them all. They're also useful in completing NPC quests, and help in battle with their special abilities. The NFT pets come in four categories: Land, Flying, Water and Special.Image source: Voxie Tactics
All 10,000 unique Voxie buddies were bought out (released in March 2021), so players must buy them on secondary marketplaces.
To access the Voxie Tactic's marketplace, you'll need a crypto wallet and a Web3 browser so you can buy, sell and collect the NFT collectibles.
AlwaysGeeky Games has some experience behind them — which isn't what we see often with blockchain games. Additionally, the main site has a dedicated section noting their experience with direct links to the team member's social profiles.
The founder and CEO is Steven Ball, who has experience with AAA titles as an online architect, designer and team manager. He's contributed to massive AAA franchises like Assassin's Creed, Far Cry and the Harry Potter games. Ball worked with Ubisoft for nearly 10 years and EA for five years.
It's refreshing to see a team and CEO with legitimate development experience; especially with massive studios like EA and Ubisoft. Many blockchain game developers don't bother to note their experience or the developers are faceless, so this extra effort is a major win in our book.
Voxie Tactics has been released in four phases. We're in phase three right now, which includes:
Phase four is slated to include:
Voxie Tactics is just getting started. The developers are taking their time with this launch, which isn't a bad thing, but they may have missed the blockchain game craze that happened in the summer of '21.
However, it has a variety of features, is being developed by an experienced team and it's free to play. Many blockchain games require an investment — usually buying pricey NFTs to start playing — but Voxie Tactics seems to be taking a more affordable approach to draw in players new to the blockchain gaming space.
