Hexcraft: a Minecraft-like hexagonal tile editor

Hexcraft: a Minecraft-like hexagonal tile editor

After working on a similar project for my computer science capstone course at Beloit College, I became interested with 3D geometry. Combining a domain I’m familiar with (javascript) with a domain I was only lightly acquainted with, (3D design) I built a hexagonal tile editor. Hexcraft allows the player to create Minecraft-style worlds and save them to the browser using local storage.

You can check out the source code at github.com/vogtb/hexcraft or you can play around with the game here.
