Hello everyone! I know that this thread is quite old, but I didn't see the need to create a new thread dedicated to my series of games, so I hope it's ok to use this one again to share just a few news.Updates on the Black Cube series (ASA: A Space Adventure, etc):
- Black Cube Jam: celebrating the 10th anniversary of the series!
I have hosted a game jam between April and November to celebrate the 10 years of the BC series (which started with the release of ASA in 2013), and my friends and fans have participated. In the end, 11 fan games have been made for the occasion! They are of different levels of quality, some are easy, some are very difficult, some are too short... but each game is unique and celebrates the series in its own way, and I'm so happy to share them!! Please take a look when you have the time:https://itch.io/jam/bc10/entries
- Release of Zly.ii: The Hacked Station
I have also participated to the Jam for the occasion, with the 3 projects under the name The_Icehouse. And more specifically I have created a new short game reminicent of ASA, called Zly.ii: The hacked station. The current version of Zly.ii, made in the limited time of the game jam, is not polished (the English texts have not been proofread, it's a google translation...), but I will work on it more in the future to improve the game and maybe release it on Steam later in an improved way.
I think it's still interesting to play this free early access version if you liked my previous games: it's still a full game with a beginning and an end, and it's not that short (it can take several hours to complete, depending on how good you are at solving the puzzles).
The puzzles are challenging, with many clues to understand, but I don't want to post a walkthrough now. So don't hesitate to contact me if you're stuck in the game!https://the-icehouse.itch.io/zlyii
- New game in development: Hexpatria
At the occasion of the Black Cube Jam, I have revealed that a new game is now in development (slowly). I had paused development and the Black Cube series after the release of Boinihi in 2020 for various reasons, but it's time for me to work on a new title. I'm still unsure if it will really be included in the Black Cube series or be a separate title (at this stage both are still possible), but it will be a first person adventure again. I have finished working on the world design and puzzles, and I can't wait to progress more on the development to tell you more, and to start showing a few screenshots and explain what's new!
If you play any game in the Black Cube series, please don't forget to share your feedback with the rest of the world, either here on Gameboomers, or Steam reviews, or by commenting on the games' download pages on itch.io (or wherever you want: facebook, twitter, discord, etc.)! It's very important for other players to read what you have to say about the games. Thanks a lot!
