Along the way, you must work together with an incredible cast of characters who each have their own unique abilities and personalities.
Together with these characters, the Moon seems within reach. Or is it? You need to unlock its secrets, and this means solving fantastic puzzles.

Asylumâ€™s QuadWorlds is a 2013 puzzle game coming to Steam, Windows, Mac and Linux.
Itâ€™s a 4×4 grid with cubes representing different colors. The overall goal of the game is to connect a green cube to another green cube.
The number of steps needed is actually a puzzle itself. At the end of the puzzle each color that was solved is rewarded a bonus point, which adds up to a final score.
This is a remake of an old 2×2 demo that I made for the keynote of the RedBalloon GameJam 2013. The demo was a fun way to show the concept of the game.
With QuadWorlds I wanted to explore another concept, while still keeping the same 2×2 puzzle demo.
The puzzle demo will still be in the game, but it will be much more accessible for the player.
Since it will now be part of a full game, I made a bunch of changes on the way:
– I introduced

A visual treat for the eyes. The Art of Halcyon: Lightspeed Edition is a 49 page art book containing concept art, pre-production art, and a whole lotta pixel art goodness from the Halcyon 6 game.
Encompassing a variety of artwork from various styles, from traditional painterly techniques to my more original digital style, all presented beautifully in full colour. These images are taken from the game itself, portraying the universe created by Nathan Edinpura and, from a gameplay perspective, provide a comprehensive look into how the game plays.
You are a space wormhole traveler, humanity’s last hope and probably, quite probably, the universe’s most wanted fugitive. But there are others out there with their own agenda…Special Offer: Buy the game, or the artbook, and you can take away a print of your very own piece of the Halcyon universe.

SO I KNOW I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS GAME FOR A LONG TIME, AND I’M REALLY EXCITED TO FINALLY GET TO PLAY IT. BUT WHAT IS HALCYON 6? IT’S A SPACEWORLD YOU PLAY AS A RACCOON WITH POSSIBLE SPLIT PERSONALITY SLEEP DEVICE. I FIGURED IT WAS A LOT OF WILD FANCINESS. WHEN I RAN MY GAME ACROSS THE MEATBALLS TO SEE HOW IT WAS DOING I FOUND OUT THAT OTHER PEOPLE WERE A LOT MORE INTERESTED IN THE STORY THAN IN THE GAME, WHICH I REALLY LIKE. THE GAME IS STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS, AND ONLY A SMALL AMOUNT OF THE STORY IS EVEN IN PLACE YET, SO I WOULD HOPE YOU WOULD CHECK BACK TO SEE THE END PRODUCT, WHICH CERTAINLY LOOKS AWESOME. NOPE. YOU CAN’T. ALRIGHT JESSICA. YOU CAN’T, BUT I’M GONNA. SO HERE I AM GONNA SHOW YOU ANOTHER SET OF ILLUSTRATIONS I MADE WHILE HAVING A LITTLE TALK WITH YOU ABOUT THE CONTENT OF THE BOOK. BECAUSE I ALSO WERE TO BE A HUMAN BEING AND NOT A TOTALLY DEAD WACKO I AM REALLY HERE FOR YOU, BUT I BET YOU MIGHT THINK I’M HOOKIN’ UP WITH A

Dedicated to art, game development, and the two together!
My name is Alex. Iâ€™m the artist who has been working on Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition for the last two years. What you see in the gameâ€™s intro, is all my work. Along with the awesome creation of sound composer Kiel Meadors and lead game developer Josh. I hope you enjoy the art as much as I did when creating it.
During my first month of work on Halcyon 6, I was given art direction for the game from the creators of the original game, Jonny and Rina, via Skype. The initial goal was to meet the tight deadline, and deliver a PS4 version of the game without any of the visual features (such as character models, higher resolution textures, etc) of the original release.
When the time came to make art for the release, my role as lead art director was to choose which direction to take for each environment in the game. This often meant finalizing decisions that the game was based on.
During my initial call with Jonny and Rina, I was given a series of text files with notes on what I should focus on. These text files also contained some of the visual decisions and references the game creators were drawing from. The goal was to create a world that felt unique, without running into too many design problems and limitations that would need to be solved later.
I began with a task of creating my own â€˜lookâ€™ for the game and setting the tone for the entire project. This included choosing the level of detail I wanted in the visuals, as well as choosing some of the â€˜lookâ€™ for the environments in the game. During this process I was also playing the game daily, providing feedback and test builds to the game creators, to make sure I was capturing everything they wanted from the final project.
Once the art direction was set, the creators and I began to put it into action. By using the art direction, I was able to develop the art style and lighting that would help create the unique feel for the Halcy
The last Halo Event this year is a big deal, as it’s a special anniversary gift for Halo LightSpeed. Celebrating the six-year anniversary of Halo and Xbox Infinity, Halo LightSpeed continues a tradition of celebrating the biggest events in Halo history with specialty in-game items that help celebrate as fans play through the journey through this special year with exciting new features and ways to earn special gifts.
The January Halo Event offers new depth to the traditionally lightweight Halo matchmaking experience by featuring Halo 3 Arena, now called Lightspeed Arena, where players can enjoy one-on-one battles with many of Haloâ€˜s iconic heroes against the ridiculous AI of the UMSF Quantum AI. In addition to the classic Quick Play playlist, weâ€™ve added a brand new ranked Arena playlist and a new competitive playlist featuring maps and game types from the entire Halo Legends collection. Halo One, Halo 2, and Halo 3 are available; each game mode is equipped with customizable difficulty levels as gamers choose the level of competition they want to face against. Players who take on the challenge of Halo 3 will immediately become part of the small but loyal group of H3 Legendary players and earn a unique cosmetic outfit. Quick Play and Arena are both free, so experience all the solo and Firefight modes youâ€™ve come to love, or enjoy the new game modes in competitive Ranked.
The January Halo Event gives players a free Anniversary Gift and all-new upgrades to Link. With the Anniversary Pack, two standard Link boxes are being replaced by dual Anniversary Pack boxes, as well as four bonus Livestream Hacks for even more ways to customize Linkâ€˜s abilities. New cosmetic rewards are available in the Anniversary of Spartans, including a set of updated armor for Master Chief and Spartan Ops Player Emblem, along with a new armor set designed especially for Spartan Ops Player Emil and a new Emoji head for the ghost of a fallen Spartan. Returning rewards from last year include a new cosmetic Weapon Case, two new outfitting Kit bundles, and a one-week VIP subscription.
The Halo Event begins now and will run through January 23. We’re hoping to see hundreds of community members participating in Lightspeed Arena, competing on new Halo 3, Halo: Reach, and Halo Legends multiplayer maps in a brand new Ranked Arena game mode, and enjoying the new Anniversary of Spartans aesthetic and rewards. With the anniversary gifts and all of the anniversary celebration of the past six years, we’re excited to see hundreds of people come together all over the
