Cubic Climber is a simple game based on player`s reflexes and ability to move fingers on keyboard without releasing specified keys too soon or pressing the wrong ones. You play as a climber who is trying to climb a mountain using various holds. Every climbing hold is presented by two keys that you must press and hold until you get to another one. Some of the holds are time limited, if you don`t get them in time, you will fall. This game also includes: multiplayer(sort of), list of top 5 players in different categories,customization of your climber, system for improving qualification times and 5 unique levels. You can try to beat best times of other people and improve your rank by earning points. The final release will be totally free!

Cubic climber is my first released game (apart from some LD entries) and also the first finished project of Simplicity Game Development Studio. I am really surprised how many people played it during last 3 months. What's even more surprising, a few people decided to donate us some money by buying our game. We didn't earn more than 20€ but the fact, that someone bought the game that is available for free is really awesome. I can't express how much we appreciate it. The last thing I want to mention in this part is YouTube. You can find there more than 2 pages of Cubic Climber videos when you search it via browser. Thanks!


Let me show you some diagrams and graphs from Desura!

Popularity by country
Funny fact: Only 8 people from my country have downloaded Cubic Climber.

Popularity by gender and age

This graph clearly shows that people over 50 are not afraid of climbing!

Free/Donator ratio

I'll buy one beer for each person in the green zone :D . Thank's people ;)

Graph of installations

There are average 72 installations per day with maximum of 486 people!

What's coming next?

I was thinking a lot about this certain question during the last week and I came to conclusion that we are ready for a small commercial project. It will be announced pretty soon so make sure to follow my profile!

The game kinda rages me with F5 or more, when I press F and 5 On my keyboard, it takes my 5 as a %, Making me fall for no reason.

Are you sure that combination is F5 ? Try other numbers in different levels. If they work then there is not F5 but some other combination. Let me know if problem persists.

Why is the linux version unplayable. Did you test this on linux or did you just release?

It wont even start the game? Or you get some kind of error? Linux version was not tested properly as it was released in the last second. I will see what I can do about it. If it wont work I will have to remove it permanently or until I fix it. Thank you for letting me know.

I can only speak for myself, but I couldn't play the game either. The game does start, but it "runs" sooooooooo sluuuuuugggggggiiiiiiiiiiishhhhhhhhhlyyyyyyyyy slow that it becomes effectively unplayable, even at the standard windowed, 640x480 mode with the lowest graphics quality settings.

When I try to launch it from Ubuntu 12.04 LTS I get the following error:
Desura Error
Failed to launch item.
Failed to read
Couldnt open the file

I click on verify files, and it shows no error. What could be causing it?

Linux and Mac version were not tested properly. I thought there will be no problems but I was wrong so both of them will be removed :/ . I am sorry for that but development was aimed directly for Windows. I will be careful about this in my future projects.

Ouch, I'm so sorry to hear that because it looked like a very cool game. Is it possible to install the Windows version without Desura? If the answer is "yes" I might be able to install it through Wine.

Ok, thanks for help. If I can run it through Wine I'll let you know. But the problem you're talking about is about the download link or the package itself?

Sorry for not responding for so long, but I didn't have internet acces. The result is that no matter what I try the game freezes my entire system when loading. The only progres I made was delaying this event, but still I didn't managed to actualy play it. Anywais, I tryed the game in Windows, and it's great so I'll give it a 9. God Job!
