Default Q.U.B.E. (Quick Understanding of Block Extrusion)

I just bought this game via Steam, It was only released 6 Jan 2012, I seen it and almost passed it up but decided to try then demo. After that it got me and i went and bought it, Its a load of fun. At first i found myself comparing it to portal but then you realize its really nothing like it.

Anybody else bought it?

Set in a mysterious and abstract sterile environment, Q.U.B.E. (Quick Understanding of Block Extrusion) is a first-person puzzle game that challenges players to navigate each level by manipulating colored cubes that surround them. There's little to go on as the game begins - the player is dropped into an all-white room with few instructions, and simply has to figure their way out. The tone of game changes as the player finds small and big alterations to their environment, supported by an original score, inviting each player to let their imagination take over as to where they might be. Through experimentation and discovery, players will progress through an ever-evolving series of cube puzzles that will challenge them with logic, physics, platforming.

Yeah it is, Its a great indie puzzle game with great clean graphics. Im really enjoying it so far. Some people are saying its really short like 1 hour long, Some say they have been playing for 3 hours and haven't completed it yet ... Suppose it depends on the individual.

I noticed from watching that video that there are multiple ways to complete some of the puzzles, Some of the puzzles in that video i done differently than he did.

Also the devs are going to be working on some DLC.

Quote:
suggested future DLC:

* Story Based DLC
* A challenge mode (timed, scores etc)
* A level editor
* Co-Op
* Story added to the main game
* Game plus mode
* More Achievements
And another plus side ... This is not a console port, Infact its not even out for consoles ... They apparently could be going to port it over though.

Couple of things I notice right away. The vsync setting in game is not working. Have to force it in the Nvidia Control Panel. FSAA also doesn't appear to be working very well. Can see jaggies on all the outlines of the squares even at 8X.

I've tried every FSAA setting in the Nvidia Control Panel and the in game settings and see no difference whatsoever in the game. I also see no difference in any of the other video settings other than resolution. Seems the settings do nothing (that I can see).

Maybe FXAA or SMAA injector would work?
