Q.U.B.E. Trailer – Our First Indie Fund Game! December 1st, 2011

Check out the trailer launched today for Q.U.B.E.  This is our first Indie Fund game to launch.  Its scheduled for December 16, 2011.

Set in a mysterious and abstract sterile environment, Q.U.B.E. (Quick Understanding of Block Extrusion) is a first-person puzzle game that challenges players to navigate each level by manipulating coloured cubes that surround them. There’s little to go on as the game begins - the player is dropped into an all-white room with few instructions, and simply has to figure their way out. The tone of game changes as the player finds small and big alterations to their environment, supported by an original score, inviting each player to let their imagination take over as to where they might be. Through experimentation and discovery, players will progress through an ever-evolving series of cube puzzles that will challenge them with logic, physics, platforming.

Summer 2011 Update August 22nd, 2011

We hope you are all having a great summer! We’ve been hard at work on a side-view physics-based baseball game, which is a lot of fun to play (and develop) and quite a challenge.  Its going to be called “Home Runs” / “Jonrones” and should be out in time for the World Series!

We’ve also got new ports of all your favorite games for all the new phones that have come out this summer, so you should be able to find Armadillo Gold Rush, Monster Smash, School Break, and Perro de Bolsillo on your latest phones.

We hope you are enjoying your summer, and we look forward to launching at least 1 more game this year after Home Runs (we’ve got some more that we haven’t announced yet but are in development).
