Monthly Archives: May 2012

We (Toxic Games) have been nominated for a Develop Award!

It’s really exciting! After two years and our first game being released we’re extremely happy to be nominated for the “new studio” Develop Award alongside such brilliant studios as:

Big Bit
Bossa Studios
ShortRound Games
Six to Start
We R Interactive

Congratulations to them too!

It really is a great honour to be nominated in what is considered “early days”

We’ll be at the Rezzed game show the week before and then at develop conference (and of course the awards) all week, maybe you’ll see us down there!

Because We May Sale! 50% of Q.U.B.E.

It’s exciting indie developer times as we’re part of the Because We May sale.

It’s a big event celebrating indie developers and the stores which give us so much freedom to sell our small-scale games to the world.

Our part is that we’re cutting the price of Q.U.B.E. in half on steam!

It starts on Thursday 24th May through to the 1st June, so you haven’t got a copy of Q.U.B.E yet now is the time! Or perhaps a copy for your friend? Or your uncle? I hear he’s really been meaning to get into the whole “gaming” thing and what better way to introduce old Fred to games than with our splendid title Q.U.B.E. but just don’t tell Auntie Barbara. You know how she gets about Uncle Fred being distracted when he hasn’t even fixed the garage door.

I think we may have gotten a little off topic, the point

Q.U.B.E. will be on sale tomorrow!

Competition time!

Once again we’re running a Q.U.B.E acronym contest!

For your chance to win a steam copy of Q.U.B.E just tweet a acronym of “Q.U.B.E” with the hash tag #QUBEacronymContest

EG: “Quite Understated Barrel Erosion #QUBEacronymContest”

That was terrible, but that’s the jist.

So get tweeting and we’ll pick the winner on Wednesday 23rd May 5pm  (UK time).

Q.U.B.E will be at Rezzed Game Show

Yes indeed, Toxic Games will be down at Rezzed to showcase Q.U.B.E to the people!

It’s great to be going to another game show since we haven’t showcased in a while, especially since we’re released the game and all.

There’ll be ton of other PC and Indie Games/Game Developers there, so it’s going to awesome! Come along!
