Oh Hexcells. How I love thee. As a man obsessed with puzzle games, it is with no small amount of consideration that I say Hexcells is the best new puzzle in the last few years. I’ve jabbered my delight over both Hexcells and sequel Hexcells Plus previously, and I’m giddy-thrilled to see that there’s to be a third and final game in the series, out next month, called Hexcells Infinite. And it’s out on Monday.
Creator Matthew Brown is currently working on Sound Shift, but has generated a whole new Hexcells at the same time, and one that seems to be designed to put a lid on it. And to do so, he’s created a way of generating infinite puzzles, so everyone can stop hassling to make more of them himself.
The game will contain another 36 hand-made puzzles, and then go on to make its own to sate the hungriest players. Which is to say, if this works, I will now only play Hexcells for the rest of my life. So to keep everyone up to date, RPS will be relaunching itself on Monday when the game comes out, as an all-Hexcells, all-the-time site, bringing you the latest news and views about Hexcells and Hexcells, with Hexcells for Hexcells Hexcells Hexcells, Hexcells.
