When indie game developers Alexey and Markus are in trouble, their only hope comes from their creation.
You are the Tetrobot: a tiny robot that can drill blocks of matter one by one, collect them, and recycle them into new pieces of 4 blocks. You also have the possibility to destroy lines of 8+ blocks in a very «retro russian» game style.
Sand, wood, stone, obsidian, iron, diamond: each matter has its specific behaviour you’ll have to use wisely and take advantage of them. So get ready to use your brain and combine your platforming and puzzle-solving skills in this incredible mashup!
Blocks That Matter is a puzzle/platformer in which a tiny driller robot travels underground in order to save its creators, kidnapped by someone who wants to steal their work. The robot can drill blocks of matter, collect them, recycle them into new pieces and destroy lines.
Our intention is exactly the same than the one we had when we created Tuper Tario Tros.: we want to create a unique game experience mixing games elements and mechanics. The mash-up concept is a popular genre and that’s something we really like because it allows players to see how games that seem different at first can share the same DNA.
The game will be released in the middle of April 2011 on the Xbox Live Indie Games channel, and a few weeks later on PC, Mac and GNU/Linux. The price isn’t set yet but you can expect it to be available for less than 5 dollars.
