Gun Jam is a rhythm-murder mashup from the developer of Q.U.B.E

Even this early in development, Gun Jam looks ace. It's Thumper with guns. It's Doom Eternal played to the beat of its soundtrack. A metronome deathmatch. After a brief tease on Twitter lead to a collective response of "hell yeah!", Gun Jam has made the leap from concept to real, actual game - with devs Jaw Drop Games announcing their beat-blasting shooter earlier this week.

Have You Played… Q.U.B.E?

Q.U.B.E is what Portal might have been if it was about different coloured blocks instead of different coloured interdimensional doorways. Both take place in sterile test chambers lined with gleaming white tiles, and both involve solving lots of increasingly clever puzzles so you can eventually make a bid for freedom. The only real difference is that one gives you a giant gun to get the…

Q.U.B.E. 2 puzzle-platforming into 2018

Cubes: they're everywhere these days. Ever since Minecraft invented cubes, haven't you noticed those swollen squares popping up all over? They're obvious in many Minecraft-y video games but, if you press your face against your screen, you'll see that every game is made of little ones. And it's not just games. Cut a slice of Battenberg cake and that's cubes. Heck, look out your window…

This Monday: London Indie Launch Party-o-rama

Do you long to schmooze with the stars at video game launch parties? Oh, if only you knew Johnny Activision or Ian Ubisoft! Or had the dubious privilege of being 'games press.' You'd be a knockout in a fancy gown, I just know it. Alternatively, a little more down to earth and plaid shirt-y, a plucky young group of indie developers in London are starting…

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

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…

Q.U.B.E. Unfolds A Demo On Steam

Spatially clever first-person puzzle game Q.U.B.E. now has a demo, and you can get it on Steam. It's the first game from the Indie Fund guys, who I interviewed here. I believe Adam is working on a review of Q.U.B.E. at this very moment, so we should have his thoughts on the game very soon. In the meantime why not have a play of the…

Indie Fund Talk Q.U.B.E. And Dear Esther

With Q.U.B.E. coming out on Friday and Dear Esther coming out in February, we thought it might be timely to talk to the sinister cabal of successful indies behind the Indie Fund. That's the name of the non-publisher group that are financing these games, as well as the exciting heist game, Monaco. What are they up to? And what is so special about the indie…

They’ll Be Queueing Up For Q.U.B.E.

Gosh, did we really not post anything about super-stylish indie puzzler Q.U.B.E. since Lewie's interview a while back? It looks like we did not. And it's a game worth keeping an eye on, I think, not just because it's a neat idea for a first-person game, but also because it's the first title from the Indie Fund, that cabal of clever indies who have got…
