    Hey, guys! I came across an article about indie game Robocraft and wondered if there are developers who did Voxel games here?
    Is Unity really the best engine for such games?

    I tried following a basic tutorial on setting up a minecraft style voxel game in Unity, and the efficiency just wasn't there. There was noticeable lag when new chunks loaded. On the other hand I did build a space combat game where the ships themselves were Voxels, and that worked reasonably well, which is similar to what Robocraft is doing.

    You can see a basic demo at this link. Location specific damage, hardpoints, and I was listening to a video on the 5th element while I was playing around with the game so you can hear that in the background.
