Only played about 20 minutes (almost midnight here in NZ) but this seems like an awesome game so far. Loving the feel and seems like there will be some good head scratching puzzles. Will keep an eye on this thread for when I undoubtedly get stuck later!

There's a trial version so no reason not to give it a whirl, sold me in about 3 minutes but I'm a sucker for this type of game :)

Don't suppose this is crashing for anyone right near the start? It's like an old commodore 64 loading type of crash where there are coloured numbers/letters all over the screen.

I couldn't help but laugh at that, so in keeping with the game.

Just finished this with the minimum number of cubes, not really any story as such but some of the puzzles seem very deep! I'm avoiding any guides but seems like there is an entire alphabet and/or language which might explain more of what's happening. I got 4 anticubes which were a lot tricker and there are 32 altogether so at some point I may have no choice but to seek help!

Cracking little game, if you enjoyed the likes of Braid then make sure to pick it up :)

Fantastic game, it's exactly what I had hoped it'd be when I first heard of it ages ago. The puzzles are great and actually require some thought, and the soundtrack is superb. Anyone been to the library with the rotating planets yet? Great music in there.

Any game with QR codes and codes hidden in the achievement list is a winner in my book. My most memorable game of 2012 already, not saying it's the best or will suit everyone but I can see it staying in my head my longer than anything else I've played this year. I wish there were more XBLA titles like this!

Had a crack at this (full game) last night, so much fun! I cannot wait to play more tonight.

Got stuck, laid in bed, thinking for 30 mins about the first puzzle outside of a normal world (create tetric blocks... You will see). Suddenly it clicked!

So yea, can't wait!

Ok mate, assuming you are on the bit where one side it asks you to make a L (a flat L) and the other a flat I with one in the middle on top?

Picture it like this, if you could see it from the top, it's a 3x3 box.

[ ] [ ] [ ]

[ ] [ ] [ ]

[ ] [ ] [ ]

Now, you want to place it like the following

[ ] [ ]

[ ] [ ] [II]

[ ] [ ]

This way, you have from looking at it from the right/left side:

......[x]
[x] [x] [x]

And from the bottom/top it will look like this:

[x]
[x] [x] [x]

Yea?
