Just bought it, and like it a lot so far.

It's available now for 8 euro (or 10 dollar?) at Desura.com for PC & Mac. I've played it up until level 2.7 and the family of blocks expands even more than what we've seen in the QL. Also physics and water come into play later on, making it a little bit more difficult every level. I really like the atmosphere, music and narration. And the fact that you're actually starting to care for a couple of blocks is kinda funny.

I got my version through Indie City (it's £5.99 on there) and I've played up to about 4.2. Bar some lag issues due to my settings being too high, it's been a fun, tight platformer so far, and I've actually kinda started caring for the characters, which is kinda weird when you think about it, because they are 'just' blocks, after all. Also, man are the levels getting difficult at this point...

Your settings are too high for a 2D game that consists of mostly one light source, some water effects, and some blocks? What are you running this thing on?

To be fair, I was running the game on 'Fantastic' settings on my potato at first.

I'm not judging. My only computer capable of gaming has all the power of a banana.

Just finished playing it. It indeed manages to make you think about a cast of shapes much more than you'd think. Narration can be a powerful storytelling tool, it seems. The music definitely adds a lot to the atmosphere as well. Maybe a bit disappointed with the lack of payoff given how much tedious platforming you go through over the course of it, but it was pretty decent overall.
