Impressions: Splice

By John Walker on June 18th, 2012.

And I wrote this whole thing without making any references to biology or DNA.

My need for puzzle games is insatiable, constantly fed by the teams of enslaved designers I have generating me new Slitherlinks and Doodle Fit levels, as Telegraph cryptic crossword setters weep as their fingertips bleed from setting me more and more clues. Gathering them all a few seconds pause in their toils is Splice, a new puzzler from Auditorium developers, Cipher Prime. Will it do?

Auditorium Dev’s Splice Is Really Quite Nice

By Nathan Grayson on June 18th, 2012.

It also makes me really hungry for black liquorice jelly beans for some reason.

I just got done playing an all-too-brief demo of Auditorium developer Cipher Prime’s new sounds-and-shapes-a-majig Splice, and I’m feeling quite charmed – somewhat like a snake in a pot who’s trying to decide if he should buy a videogame or not. And, much like the proverbial snake, I’m leaning (and perhaps gyrating a bit) very strongly toward yes.

A Happy Tune: Auditorium 2 Is Going Ahead

By John Walker on March 28th, 2012.

They are moderately happy.

Last night Alec mentioned that Auditorium 2 was narrowly short of meeting its necessary Kickstarter funding to spring into existence. Well, the good news for them is that they made it, just. With 67 hours to go, they’ve sneaked over the $60,000 target, so it looks like the sequel to a well-loved indie project will be going ahead. It’s fair to say that Cipher Prime are quite pleased, reporting, “There are not enough exclamation points in the world for us to give to you.”

Auditorium 2 Sings For Its Supper

By Alec Meer on March 27th, 2012.

It takes two, baby

Remember atmospheric, reflection-based music game curio Auditorium? Presumably, despite being received with hugs and even awards the world over, it didn’t rake in quite all the readies it could have done, otherwise sequel Auditorum Duet perhaps wouldn’t be Kickstarter-funded.

With three days left to go on its crowdsourcing, it’s at $51,000 of its $60,000 goal, so odds of pulling it off are reasonable at this stage.

Push It Real Good: Fractal

By Kieron Gillen on May 31st, 2010.

Hexist
I think it was Schizoslayer who pointed me at this, but I only had a chance to play it now. It’s Fractal, and it’s really quite neat puzzler from the makers of Auditorium. The idea is simply you have a limited number of new hexes to push into a grid, which displaces all the other ones. Form larger hexes formed of smaller ones to score points. Elegant and looks great. There’s a web-demo for you to play, but the full version will cost you fifteen dollars. GO FOOTAGE!
