i'm glad you like the art.
have you had a chance to try the game? I'd be happy to know your thoughts or hear any bug reports / feedback.

There is a bug in the current Mac version. If you install the cypress.app into the system "Applications" folder, the save-progress functionality of Cypress may not function. As a workaround, you should put the App on the Desktop or elsewhere outside "Applications" where your user has the permission to write files.

Extract, then CD to the extracted directory and run "./cypress.bin". (You will need to have installed SDL, SDL-IMAGE, SDL-GFX, SDL-TTF, and SDL-MIXER. Some Linux users may get an error message about not being able to load SDL-GFX. If this happens, try choosing the CONTINUE option. I am working on a fix.

I just realized you can't choose CONTINUE if Desura is pumping the messages to .xsession-errors. If you are able to start the game from the command line, CONTINUE should work. Sorry for any confusion---I'll contact Desura about the issue and see what's changed. In the meantime, you may have an easier time with the standalone download for Linux: Blocky.io where running it from the terminal will let you choose CONTINUE.

Hello. If you choose the "CONTINUE" option by typing "0" and then pressing return, it should work for now. I'll fix this issue ASAP, thanks for taking the time to report this and providing the error message.
Please let me know whether the CONTINUE option functions as a workaround for now---I'm pretty sure it should.

hmmmmm... meh not really. I don't want to change the Squareball physics , because the whole game is built around it, and things might go wrong. Also a faster ball might have collision detection problems (a limitation of my system).

Please note: Users of unpatched "vanilla" 64-bit Windows 7 may experience crashes. This is an issue with the underying language runtime. If Service Pack 1 or later are installed, there are no problems.

This screen capture seems smooth when played in Standard Definition, but jerky when played in HD. Again, the real game is at a pretty smooth 30fps.

Bug notice: apparently some Microsoft USB mice also register as a USB joystick, and this causes problems with version 0.7. This will be fixed in the next release. A workaround is to start the game without the mouse plugged in.

Hi, the real trailer is in HD but there seems to be no HD button on this particular video. The file I uploaded is definitely HD so maybe there is an issue with the encoder. Anyway, here are links to the HD versions:

By the way, despite being called "win32", this build will run on most versions of 64-bit Windows. One exception is "vanilla" 64-bit Windows 7---you will need Service Pack 1 or greater, to play 2x0ng without crashes. I'm planning a proper 64-bit native version of the game.

The video looks slightly jerky to me, but I'm not sure whether it's the player or my encoder (or the transcoder on the server.) Just so you know, the actual game runs at a pretty smooth 30fps.
