Grip Games have revealed that on July 24 physics-based puzzler, Q.U.B.E: Director’s Cut, will release globally on Xbox One.

In Q.U.B.E (‘Quick Understanding of Block Extrusion’), you step into the moon boots of an astronaut stranded on a mysterious spaceship – I recently remarked on the TiX podcast how everyone seems to be releasing a space game, and while Q.U.B.E. was released way back in 2011, I must admit to enjoying the influx of space titles.

The Director’s Cut promises to be the ‘ultimate edition’ of Q.U.B.E. – many have compared its devious puzzles to Portal, which is quite the accolade. The name of the game is block puzzles that centre around physics – sounds simple right!

There’s platforming puzzles and 3D jigsaw puzzles that demand quick thinking, logic and precision if you are to best them and find your way back home. For returning fans there’s also new levels and modes to take on. Grip Games’ Jakub Mikyska said,

Everyone who became immersed in Q.U.B.E on its first release will be glad to return to face the all-new challenges, while gamers who have yet to experience the mysteries of Q.U.B.E have a treat in store.
