Independent developer Toxic Games today released footage of the Q.U.B.E. 2 demo playable at events including Gamescom, PAX West and EGX. The work in progress footage shows off an early section of the game, introducing the player to the functions of each coloured cube. In Q.U.B.E. 2, as opposed to the prequel, the player now has the power to decide which coloured cubes are placed into the sequel’s beautifully realised and varied environments.

Q.U.B.E. 2 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in early 2018. Q.U.B.E. 2 puts players in the shoes of British archaeologist, Amelia Cross, on a beautiful yet mysterious alien planet. With the help of fellow survivor, Emma, Amelia must face the challenges of the Q.U.B.E. in the hope of finding a way back home. Q.U.B.E. 2 retains the shifting, environmental puzzles of the original but wraps the action around Amelia’s own intimate story and her quest for survival.
