Stuck In Greenlight Limbo: ‘QbQbQb’


This time the spotlight will be shining on QbQbQb, a planetary block stacker! Let’s see if we can’t help it escape the cold emptiness of Greenlight limbo, eh?

Rotate the planet, match the colors enjoy the building up music and visuals. Play solo, play with friends – or let the computer be your friend. Fight or unlock the planets together.

See? Planetary block stacking right there, and a good one at that. As colored blocks fall from the sky, it’s your job to rotate the planet, ensuring that they land on same colored ones (or next to, depending on the mode). Why? Well, if ya don’t, there’s gonna be trouble, because this is the only way to get rid of them (and rack up a high score). Doubt I need to explain what happens if a stack gets too high. Anyway, at its core, the game provides a nice, casual twist on the match-3 mechanic, complete with relaxing music and an easy-to-learn, hard-to-master setup. Heck, there’s even same-screen multiplayer for when you’re feeling competitive, and several different planets to play on… over… around? Right. Spin spin spin! Stack stack stack!

So riddle me this, dear reader: why is QbQbQb still struggling to get through Greenlight? It’s been out for a while (since June, 2013), so availability certainly can’t be the reason. Might I recommend visiting its Greenlight page and handing over a ‘yes’, if you like what you see? Remember: your vote matters!

QbQbQb is available for Windows, Mac, Linux from Desura and IndieGameStand priced at $5 and without DRM.
