New York - August 12, 2014 - Binary Takeover has released  Lost Marbles™  on Steam for the PC, Mac, and Linux platforms. To celebrate the high profile new release, Binary Takeover added 10 punishing new levels - included for current and new players.

Binary Takedown, previous developers and publishers of 2010's Turba™ (also available on Steam), got the ball rolling on  Lost Marbles™  as a student project 5 years ago.  The game soon snow-balled into a grueling 3D physics-based puzzle that has thrilled players and has entertained hundreds of thousands of Youtube viewers.

On an ethereal plane ranging from blue skies with clouds, deep outer space or a devilish hellscape, players must guide the  Lost Marbles to the exit goal while avoiding traps and steeling their nerves against a fear of heights.  Each of the three marbles has a unique Herculean strength and an Achilles heel: The Paper Ball can crumple down in size and float through the air, but is far from fireproof; The massive Metal Ball is indestructible and can boost through objects in its path, but is too heavy to jump; The Rubber Ball can bounce and absorb electricity, but can't dive underwater.

Critics are bouncing with excitement for  Lost Marbles™  - Harry Hughes of MMGN.com proclaims, "A great concept becomes a perfect package thanks to beautiful presentation, making this title one of the best puzzle-platformers on the market. ...  9/10!"  Kim Berkley,  indiegamemag.com gives her own spin: "The pacing of the increase in difficulty and complexity in Lost Marbles is commendably pitch-perfect."

"Everyone at Binary Takeover is proud and excited to see  Lost Marbles™  on Steam," said Co-Founder Keith Morgado.  He adds, "Thanks to the game's warm reception, we're also proud to introduce 10 new levels and give our players more of what they love."  Be sure to visit the Steam store page at  http://store.steampowered.com/app/291430/ to download  Lost Marbles™  today.
