Best Game Design
For Cublast HD’s game design our goal was to use a simple system to challenge the player in multiple ways. All of our gameplay elements are based on the physics engine in the Unity game engine. We have implemented this in a way that the physics do not only challenge the player with agility, but also the puzzle elements are based on physics. For example, the player can move certain cubes to activate switches and use them to jump over spikes or other obstacles.
Next to the physics it is very important to us that the player has a smooth and pleasant experience. For this reason we have chosen to make sure that the game has no loading screens and in turn receives a seamless experience while playing and navigating between menus.

Best Art Direction
With Cublast HD we took a step back and asked ourselves: “What is necessary to create an enjoyable and immersive experience?”
With that question in mind, we tuned the look and feel of the game by taking away unnecessary distractions and focussing the visual elements on the core gameplay. We wanted to capture the feeling of a clean and sterile environment with colours indicating important and/or dangerous sections in the game.
Combined with the atmospheric music it establishes an aesthetic that’s truly unique.

Best Music & Audio
The audio in Cublast HD is a unique mix of organic and digital sounds. With the combination of audio and visuals, the game results in a very serene but lively world! These two elements are also reflected in our soundtrack, which is calm but also energetic. Next to that, the music adapts itself to the player’s progress (The further the player advances in the game, the livelier the music becomes), which allows the player to really feel their progression. These features make the audio and music a unique addition to the game world and the game experience.
