Wonderstruck, an independent studio comprised of former Lionhead and EA veterans, has today announced that voxel-based multiplayer sandbox Oort Online has moved into early access with eager builders now able to pre-purchase the game.
In the Oort Online universe, you’ll be able to explore huge numbers of different worlds, each with unique appearances, resources, real players and their creations. Each planet is populated by vicious and varied creatures known as The Protectors. Fight them alone or with friends to be rewarded with experience and loot.

Everyone plays in the same universe. You can build anything, anywhere, from Portals to Palaces, and keep your creations safe using Beacons. Step through a Portal and find other players, their creations, monuments, shops, cities and guilds. The whole universe is open for you to explore!
While the idea of voxel-based sandbox titles isn't exactly a new concept in today's gaming world, it seems that the team at Wonderstruck are hoping to bring a new take on the rapidly growing genre. That unique take looks to be its seamlessly connected worlds, through which you can choose to either conquer or live alongside, though the choice seems to be in the player's hand.

For more on Oort Online, check out the reveal trailer below. If the video convinces you enough, you can also throw money at the monitor by heading over to their official website, which holds a number of Early Access packages typical of a Kickstarter drive.

Voxel based engine, but they decide to go with large minecraft-ish blocks? Seems like a weird choice to me.

IIRC, voxels are basically blocks anyway. I imagine they don't want pixel-sized blocks for simplicity of use.
