Puzzle platforming !

Atoms, the building blocks of matter. Cells, the building blocks of life. Stone blocks layer the foundations of Egyptian pyramids, while thick slabs of concrete and metal frame our homes and skyscrapers. Blocks have been around longer than the wheel. Whether they’re wooden instruments, plastic bricks, chocolatey goodness, or pixely companions – for generations of children and adults… it’s blocks that matter. Markus and Alexey are two legendary block-enthusiast-game-developer extraordinaires. Desire for companionship and adventure brings them together to collaborate on their most ambitious project yet. A shroud of mystery surrounds the Swedish studio, as citizens of this world look toward the project in reverent anticipation. One day, a small criminal group takes the hype one step too far… Markus and Alexey are kidnapped, and now their secret brainchild is the only hope they have.

Blocks that Matter is the game that totally not Notch Markus and definitely not the Tetris guy Alexey might have released if they weren’t busy making a robot. Now they’re in danger, and it’s up to you to get them out. Tetrobot is the one eyed, sweeter than a sugar cube companion that will drill and hop past just about anything blocking his way. Put on a thinking cap and remember your tetrominoes as you platform and mine your own crafty escape route!

A love letter to every cube and brick in gaming. This unique puzzle-platformer will have you headbutting, mining, and arranging blocks for over sixty head scratching levels. Give your thumbs and mind a workout with Blocks that Matter, for only $1.99 on GOG.com!

It’s an electric company!

Fifteen years have passed since Tetrobot’s great rescue in Blocks That Matter. The little robot now sits on a workbench, idle and decrepit. A lone girl tinkers nearby, as she reaches over, her nimble fingers tweaking and turning, a new life enters the mechanical body. Switch on, Psychobot! You’re the Tetrobots’ little brother in the most literal sense. A microscopic one-eyed creature designed to delicately penetrate your broken siblings’ inner workings. You’re here to help: float on through the damaged circuitry, flip switches, and regurgitate blocks of matter to rebuild your fallen brethren. Find the important answers: What broke all of these Tetrobots? And how are you so freaking adorable?

Tetrobot and Co. takes the best design and puzzle elements of Blocks That Matter and goes all out. This time around a brand new point and click interface lets you focus entirely on the puzzles. The game is anything but easy, while nothing but fair: there are no perks or backtracking here, every puzzle can be solved from the get-go even if it doesn’t seem like it at first glance. That’s all part of the fun. Just don’t blame us when that one solution hits you like a brick during your morning shower.

Pick up Tetrobot and Co., a quirky brain buster with 50+ levels of head-scratching fun, for as little as $3.99, on GOG.com!

Shopping à Paris!

Sure Paris is great for a walk down the Seine, a visit to the Louvre, or “café et croissant” at Champs-Élysées, but today it’s all about games! Our This special deal is our stand-in for Wednesday’s regular Gem Promo offering, however, with 10 games in the line-up we figured it’s only fair to give you a bit more time. The offer is in effect until Sunday, August 3, at 9:59AM GMT. The lineup includes titles that have shaped gaming history as well as games that made a big splash more recently. Let’s have a quick look at a few of those:

Another World, the action-adventure cult-classic, created almost entirely by only one person – Éric Chahi The game was one of the biggest hits on the Amiga platform thanks to its cinematic feel, great animation and gameplay consisting of puzzles, platforming, and shooter sections. Lester, a young scientist struck by lightning during an experiment and miraculously teleported to a dangerous and mysterious world. His survival is entirely in your hands, and, boy, Another World is not the friendliest of places!

Aarklash Legacy is a modern top-down RPG title reminescent of the early 2000s classics, complete with deep tactical combat and an active pause system. An intriguing story is a wonderful backdrop for what the game truly excels in: elaborate combat mechanics, allowing for complete control over enemy encounters. With a classic feel combined with many original ideas, elaborate skill trees, ominous dungeons, and sleek visuals, this fantastic title will easily quench your thirst for classic computer role-play!

Omikron: The Nomad Soul, a remarkable action-adventure game, even by today’s standards, came way ahead of its time. With its lush and complex virtual world, diverse gameplay mechanics, and original immersive storytelling. It succeeded in creating an illusion of stepping into another world and obliterated the barrier between the virtual reality and our own. The project was so fresh, imaginative, and ambitious that David Bowie himself was more than willing to take a prominent part in the production. You can even meet his lookalike in the game and listen to him performing!

Celebrate the creativity and craftsmanship of Parisian game-makers and take advantage of our Games from Paris promo! Allez, allez!
