Toxic Games, new indie developer announces their first debut title, Q.U.B.E. - supported by Indie-Fund

PRESS RELEASE

South Wales, UK - 9 th August 2011 – Toxic Games, a newly formed small independent developer based in Newport, South Wales founded by former classmates, began development of Q.U.B.E. as a student project in 2009.  All three core members are game designers with no programming expertise. Thanks to the encouragement of academic mentors and industry professionals, and with the help of the Indie Fund for start-ups, Toxic Games went from student hobbyists to independent

developers upon graduation from university. Toxic Games plans to release their debut title, Q.U.B.E. with the support of Indie-Fund in late 2011 to early 2012.

Q.U.B.E. is a first-person, singleplayer game that begins in a sterile, white cubic environment. The game presents the player with a series of brain-teasing puzzles, ranging from physics-based challenges and 3D jigsaws to platform-based trials.

With the aid of technologically enhanced gloves, the player manipulates and navigates a deep space training facility packed with cubes. The player can pull red blocks one at a time, extract multiple cubes of yellow all at once, use blue cubes for jumping, and push green cubes around the environment.

Q.U.B.E. has been nominated as a finalist in several game competitions including the Indie Game Challenge, The Escapist Extra Credits Innovation Awards and IndieDB's Indie Game of the Year award: Best UDK Game.
