CombatCubes is an action-packed 2D arcade shooter, where the player controls Dave, an elite fighting cube. Dave blasts his way through side scrolling levels, fighting tanks and other fighting cubes along the way. The game includes a persistent weapon unlock system, as well as in-game killstreaks and upgrades. Development is planned for Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android platforms.
We have some exciting news for this update, including Engine changes, and a sneak peek at the main theme.

Hello All, We have been busy at BlackOut for the past few weeks, working on CombatCubes, Stickmen and Stones, and some other top-secret things.
First off, we decided to change the engine for CC to Love2D, for a number of reasons. Love is open source, awesome, and easy to port to other platforms. This means cross-platform compatibility is on the table, and we would like to port to mobile platforms at some point as well. As you can imagine, we have been busy re-coding the game in the new engine, but we are making progress fast.
Also, we got started on creating an original theme for CC, and you can preview on of the tracks below. We are going for an arcade-esque feel, and we are very happy with the results.
Thats all for this update, stay tuned for more.
