QUBE Director's Cut out now on PC, coming to PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360 this year

QUBE Director's Cut — an updated version of 2012 first-person puzzler QUBE — is available now on Windows PC, with versions for PlayStation 3, Wii U and Xbox 360 slated to launch later this year, developer Toxic Games announced today.

QUBE is a physics-based puzzle game in which players control a character equipped with special gloves. These gloves allow the player to manipulate cubes in the environment on his quest to find an exit. The game was originally developed by a trio of Newport University attendees as their final student project. The updated version will include a new 10-level time trial mode, new achievements and leaderboards, a new musical score and Oculus Rift support on PC.

According to Toxic, one of biggest criticisms leveled against the original QUBE was that it didn't have a strong story. QUBE Director's Cut features a new story penned by veteran video game writer Rob Yescombe, who worked on Crytek's Crysis 2 and Crysis 3 as well as Tequila Works' upcoming adventure game Rime.

"The Director’s Cut is a single-location thriller," Yescombe explained in a press statement. "It’s about figuring out what the Qube is, and why you’re inside it. You’re told you are an astronaut inside some kind of alien structure hurtling towards Earth, but it’s also about something deeper than that."

Additionally, the Director's Cut will feature voice acting from Rachel Robinson, best known as Fang in the Final Fantasy 13 trilogy, and Rupert Evans, who recently appeared in Ridley Scott's television drama World Without End.
