Espoo, Finland - June 16th, 2021 - To kick off Steam Next Fest, Improx Games has released a free demo of their upcoming brain-teasing puzzle adventure game The Last Cube ahead of its release later this year on PC, Switch, Xbox, and PlayStation. Set in a series of surreal otherworldly landscapes, it’s up to you to discover the history of this mysterious alien civilization.

This demo features four full levels of the game, which should last players about an hour. Here you’ll get a taste of The Last Cube’s unique sticker system, allowing you to stamp certain abilities onto your cube’s sides, granting all new abilities for that surface. Some will allow you to dash through barriers, others will create makeshift stairs, and some grant the ability to spin in place for easy maneuvering in tight places. 

Positioning your cube to acquire the desired stickers on the correct surface can range from pleasingly simplistic, to masochistic head scratchers as you scramble through The Last Cube’s 100+ puzzles. New mechanics are introduced at a breezy clip, rapidly expanding one’s perception of what your cube is capable of.

The full game will take players through a plethora of moody, monolithic chambers ranging from foggy nightmarish abysses, to oppressive lava lit factories, to uplifting natural landscapes full of golden rays of sunshine glistening against mountains. This demo will showcase the first few stages, offering a glimpse at the expansive scope that lies beyond the shrouded horizons of this derelict world.

"We’re really proud of how The Last Cube looks and feels, and can't wait for players to get their hands on it. To get the full grasp of how the cube's abilities make the game unique, you really need to play it for yourself,” said Max Samarin, creative director at Improx Games. "That’s why we decided to offer players everywhere free access to its opening levels ahead of launch. We know from playtesting how engaging The Last Cube is, and we want everyone else to experience its tantalizing brain-busting charms for themselves!"
