BLOCKS THAT MATTER OUT ON XBLIG

Featuring two semi-fictional indie developers named Alexey and Markus (ring a bell?), Blocks That Matter is a puzzle/platformer in which a tiny driller robot travels underground in order to save its creators kidnapped by someone who wants to steal their work. The robot can drill blocks of matter, collect them, recycle them into new pieces and destroy lines.

The game is sort of a mash-up between Boulder Dash, Tetris and Minecraft.

Here is the brand new launch trailer of Blocks That Matter that celebrates the release of the game with loud chiptune :  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aDtip5b-Kc
