[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

From 11th September to 18th September we are hosting special event on Steam - The Coffee Cup!

During this week we are going to run a special season of Challenge Vault, our game mode that can now also be played for free! In this mode, players can play a new level every day and compete with each other by trying to finish it as fast as possible. To join the event, all you have to do is to get the BLACKHOLE demo version on Steam for free and start playing Challenge Vault. The existing owners of full version can also join, no matter whether they are playing on PC, Mac or Linux. Xbox and PS4 players can still experience the original Challenge Vault.

We are also going to be streaming our playthough of the game with developer commentary and we might attempt to beat some of the leaderboard times, too! You can watch the stream and check out our schedule here.

What is BLACKHOLE?

BLACKHOLE is a hardcore puzzle platformer that revolves around rotating the gravity and avoiding deadly traps. You, the coffee guy, will find yourself inside a black hole after the crash of your spaceship due to strange circumstances.

Find your crewmates, fix the spaceship and reveal the dark mystery behind the mission while accompanied by a sarcastic artificial intelligence.

Key features of BLACKHOLE

  • Over 120 uniquely designed levels in 6 various environments

    The levels can be rotated and contain multiple collectibles, so each level offers several challenges. Explore colorful worlds ranging from deep caverns to a vibrant jungle. 

  • A fully voiced sci-fi comedy

    Some of the English voice actors also appeared in Dust: An Elysian Tail, while the Czech version was voiced by famous Czech and Slovak Youtubers - the game characters are actually based on them!

  • Challenge Vault

    Challenge Vault offers a new level each week with global leaderboards. Players can choose to share their replays with others.

  • Captivating soundtrack

    Melodies range from beautiful to mysterious, and you'll get to hear tribal and ethnic instruments as well as modern electronic synths.
