Experience the universe of DreamWorks’ Voltron: Legendary Defende and take control of the Cubes of Olkarion!

Voltron: Cubes of Olkarion is an action-packed, one-on-one, real-time-strategy game where you take on the role of your favorite Paladin to battle AI or other players online.

Choose your character and control a base on either side of the map. Then concentrate on building your tower from unique cubes as high and strong as you can. Pay attention to your tower arrangement as each cube has different attack or defense abilities. Some cubes launch projectiles, others are great for defense and even others can spawn units that fly over to attack the other side’s tower.

Keep a cool head, think creatively and make quick decisions during battle, it only takes one mistake for your tower to crumble.

This game project started as an entry into the Universal GameDev Challenge in 2018. After being selected as the winner, NBCUniversal agreed to publish the game and Gbanga developed the Early Access version.

NOTE: This Early Access version contains a single-player mode as well as both local and online multi-player.
