Hyphen is a must have addition to any puzzle/action game lover’s collection. Navigate a rotating stick through intricate and fiendish neon mazes while trying to avoid the walls and obstacles. Although it sounds extremely simple, it’s fun and infuriatingly challenging at the same time. Coupled with an awesome soundtrack and gorgeous glowing visuals this game will blow your mind in more ways than one.

We're running a giveaway of 100 copies of Hyphen on the proviso that the game is greenlit. To be in with a chance of winning, visit Whosgamingnow.com and follow the instructions :) The winners will receive a Steam key when the game is released on Steam

2 comments by FarspaceStudios on Nov 2nd, 2014


We've created a longplay video of Hyphen and uploaded it to YouTube. We get a lot of people claiming that certain parts of the game aren't possible when they get stuck, so we've proved they are by playing the whole game through in one go! It's pretty much like a tutorial/walkthrough for those who get stuck!

The video is a couple of hours long which we feel really showcases the amount of game you're actually getting for £3.99 - especially when you consider it was played by one of the developers. The average player would spend a lot longer playing the game!

If you like what you see of Hyphen you can pick it up from Desura for £3.99

Desura Digital Distribution

We're also still struggling to get Hyphen through Steam Greenlight. If you have a Steam account please consider giving us a Yes vote here:- Steam Greenlight

Although Hyphen has a spinning stick in it, the gameplay differs quite a lot from that in Kuru Kuru Kururin. We have insta death for starters, no lives and health restoration and the focus is mainly on the difficulty. There's no messing around with storylines and cutesy characters, we've made this game to be a challenge. There are a lot of games with a spinning stick mechanic like this and all of them are actually based on an old japanese carnival game called Kururin, the idea of a spinning stick isn't exclusive to Kuru Kuru Kururin. That said if you did enjoy Kuru Kuru Kururin then Hyphen is definitely worth a download and play to see for yourself.
