Prepare The Acronyminator: Q.U.B.E. Is Getting DLC

If you're happy and you know it clap your hands!
Aw, the game name doesn’t have any dots! I’ll just sadly power down my Acronyminator and pack it away. Sorry, chap. I know. I was excited, too. Even so, I’ll forgive the Q.U.B.E. developers Toxic Games for naming their first set of Q.U.B.E. levels Against The Qlock. I am not above torturing language until it screams uncle, and I also appreciate a good rub of the nethers as much as the… Wait, Qlock means clock, doesn’t it? Not… [blushes]. Excuse me, I have to heavily rewrite my fanfiction.

It makes much more sense, now. The base game was about environmental puzzles, prodding and pulling the world’s walls with your magic gloves to extrude columns. Despite that previous sentence, it had nothing to do with winkies. It was rather nice, if sterile, and it suffered from comparisons with Portal 2. That is my review.

The downloady content adds ten levels of additional hand-wavey puzzles to defeat. There’s no mention of new mechanics, instead they’re prodding at your competitive button (located just under your right armpit), adding time trials and leaderboards for you to use to mock your friends with. After all, society values Q.U.B.E. completion scores as highly as your bitcoin count.

Trailer time.

It’ll be out on May 6th. Thanks, PCG.

    I feel like the I apologize for that lame joke tag should be on 75% of RPS stories.

      Never change, RPS. Keep reaching for the gutter, with all your might.

    I found the game a little bit too easy. I might check this out, depending on the price.

  4. Abendlaender says:

    I think it’s, in fact, a PvP DLC. Qlock obviously stands for “Glock”

    Met one of the guys who made this, seemed like a really nice guy, it’s great when indies take off

    Hey, man. Society really cares about your bitcoin count when you sell ridiculous amounts of it to idiots for cash money. That entire situation is baffling to me.
