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.

As some of you may be aware, we unleashed Hyphen upon the world just over a month ago in May. Since launch we have had some really great feedback and reviews as well as a fairly decent amount of sales :)

We're still working on porting the game to other platforms as well as making a start on another title that we have in the works (keep your eyes peeled for that, we'll be making announcements in the not too distant future!)

We're also still desperately trying to get our game through Steam Greenlight - we're slowly climbing the ranks but we'd appreciate any votes to help us on our way up into the top 100. If you'd like to vote we'd be extremely grateful and the link is:- Steamcommunity.com

As well as the nice reviews and feedback, we've also been blessed with the attention of the RageGamingVideos channel on YouTube who have decided to make a series out of a Hyphen playthrough. The videos are filled with rage and are pretty hilarious! There are 3 videos uploaded at the time of writing this and I have embedded the first one in this post for you to get started with:-

That's all we have to talk about for the time being so we won't ramble on!

Until the next update, take care and make sure to check out Hyphen if you haven't already!

Kuru Kuru Kururin anyone? Not complaining though, I loved that game.

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.

I played the demo a bit today, good stuff! It's extremely frustrating in the "Dammit I WILL beat the level this time, I know it!" kind of way. The visuals are spot on for this kind of game and I like the audio work. Keep it up guys :)

Thanks a lot! Really happy to hear you like it so far. You'll beat the levels you have just got to keep at it! :D

@Marvipan getting a doctors appointment is definitely harder ;)

@TotalMonkery @alihelmy @TheIndieSloth it would do unspeakable amounts of good for my mental health too....

@RageGamingVideo awesome, designing/testing the levels was insane - that was our challenge! Our reward is the rage videos lol

Jul 22 2014, 7:22pm by farspacestudios

@alihelmy @TotalMonkery @TheIndieSloth oh you're not alone in that department ;)

Jul 22 2014, 7:19pm by farspacestudios

@RageGamingVideo as an aside, it's great to see your community enjoying watching you play it and I gather you're secretly enjoying it too ;)

Jul 22 2014, 7:16pm by farspacestudios

@RageGamingVideo haha it's defo possible on keyboard. Better get used to the shift key for fine movements - you'll soon see why ;)

Jul 22 2014, 7:14pm by farspacestudios

@TotalMonkery @alihelmy @TheIndieSloth How does it make you feel when a programmer (like me) says it is hard? ;) It certainly ain't easy!

Jul 22 2014, 7:03pm by farspacestudios

@RageGamingVideo BTW, you'll struggle a lot less if you can get your hands on an Xbox 360 pad for PC. It's wayy better on pad

Jul 22 2014, 6:55pm by farspacestudios

@RageGamingVideo hell no man! If/when you finish the game as-is you will be so proud of yourself ;) Whereas if we tone it down you won't :p
