Just completed Q.U.B.E

#1 Edited by Hooded (438 posts) -

After watching the Quicklook Brad and Vinny done earlier this week I was really interested in this game, so I thought i'd download it this weekend and give it a go,after just over 3 hours of playing i've just completed the game. I am really impressed, the puzzles are really well thought andI didnt find a way to cheat a single puzzle. Unlike Portal, there is no story thoughout the game, which I found was a little disappointing as there is definitely potential for a story. Saying that I have only unlocked 9/15 acheivements, these are what I didn't unlock... LINK

Which is interesting, I really think people should play though Q.U.B.E, its Portal quality puzzles with a little more unique mechanics they introduce though the whole of the game.

I'm up to the first Magnet puzzle which is where i had to stop because eye was starting to hurt. So far i like what i've played and it deffinatly reminds me of the first time i played Portal. It's kind of a shame it doesn't have any kind of story but if this blows up like the original Portal did then who knows what the developers might have a mind for a sequel.

I had no idea it was so short, but I will still give it a shot. Like what Brad mention in the quick look: the way the environment shifts and rearranges is really cool looking.

bought it today.. made it half way sector 7 in about 2,5 hours.. 3 to 3,5 hours for the full game seems about right

the puzzles are pretty good.. they switch it up nicely between thinking, timing and mechanics etc.. so far not that big of a challenge though.. the most time you spend is execution of the solution, not finding the solution.. still a worthy game to have in your library

i have completed the game 2 times and im still missing the same achivements the game was really fun but a bit easy there was only one puzzle that was hard in my oppinion i think it was the last one in sector 5

I'm at 2 hours, in section 6, and every time i hit "continue game" the game crashes...so, i'm done with this game.

It's amusing but i'd suggest waiting for a deep sale.

I played the demo after seeing the QL. I do plan on getting it, but not now. I'll wait for a sale or something. Not that the game isn't worth it - it is - but I have certain priorities that I want to keep before indulging this game.

I'd much rather it NOT have a story. Given how similar the aesthetics are it would definitely be a wrong move to attempt to write any story because for anyone who played Portal, it'd be underwhelming. I'm glad it ended in an atmospheric way.

I bought it during the Steam sale and just finished it. It was pretty fun.
