Q.U.B.E. 2 Preview

When I wrapped up the original Q.U.B.E., I didn’t see where a sequel could go. There was a giant cube, it was going to destroy the earth, some heroic astronauts put a stop to it via an elaborate series of jumping and physics puzzles, roll credits.

I massively underestimated the developers, because it turns out that there’s a huge amount of story left to tell,and Q.U.B.E. 2 outdoes its predecessor in every possible way.
