Indie Spotlight - C.U.B.E. Director's Cut

Each week the DRM Gamecast will highlight one Indie game that we feel is worth looking into. Every game listed has a planned console release for the Xbox One and/or PS4.

C.U.B.E. Director's Cut

Quick Understanding of Block Extrusion. The Director's Cut of one of the most intriguing indie puzzlers, Q.U.B.E. brings an all new narrative written by Rob Yescombe along with its unique gameplay. We also featured Q.U.B.E. Director's Cut in our Most Anticipated Indie Games list.

About The Game
Q.U.B.E: DIRECTOR’S CUT is a brain-twisting first-person puzzler. Using special high-tech gloves to manipulate cubes in the environment, the player solves an array of conundrums - from physics-based challenges; to 3D jigsaws; to platform-based trials.

Players may already be familiar with Q.U.B.E – back in 2012, the original was released on Steam to critical acclaim. But for the multi-platform Director’s Cut version, Toxic Games are spicing things up. Creative Director Jonathan Savery says, “We went through all the reviews and player feedback from the original release. People taught us about our own game, and we made sure we listened. Probably the biggest thing players wanted was a more compelling narrative – so we’re going all out to get that into this Director’s Cut.”

The All New Story
To reboot the narrative, Toxic Games brought in industry veteran Rob Yescombe, writer on franchises including CRYSIS, ALIEN: ISOLATION, STAR WARS and PS4’s upcoming RIME; winner of Best Thriller Screenplay at the Creative World Awards, and the screenwriting Award of Excellence at the Canada International Film Festival.

“The Director’s Cut is a single-location thriller” says Yescombe, “It’s about figuring out what the Qube is, and why you’re inside it. You’re told you are an astronaut inside some kind of alien structure hurtling towards Earth, but it’s also about something deeper than that.”

The Cast
The new story stars Rachel Robinson (best known as Fang in FINAL FANTASY XIII) and Rupert Evans (last seen in Ridley Scott’s TV drama, WORLD WITHOUT END). Robinson is well versed in acting for games, but Q.U.B.E: DIRECTOR’S CUT was a unique experience, particularly because the part was written specifically for her.

Robinson says, “The challenge with acting is to find a way to bring truth into the performance. So having something written specially for you makes that a lot easier. But because of that, there are aspects of this story that are very personal to me - I mean really uncommonly personal - so the process was pretty intense. Performing something this emotionally intimate requires a strong director to help you feel secure in what you’re doing. In games, actors often find themselves working in a vacuum and having to kind of guess what’s wanted. But when Rob directs, he creates a crisp and specific picture in your mind – he always knew what he needed, but always gave me the freedom to find a personal truth in it.”
