The story is SO true!
The Blue Cube is in love with the Pink Cube, his best friend. He would do anything for her…But she already fell in love with the Grey Cube. At the end of chapter 1, the Blue Cube admits that he built up too much space in our Tiny World. In chapter 2, he tries to move on. But he can’t until he meets the Peach Cube. They fall in love, but tragically, the Blue Cube is killed in a car crash. He says life has a sick sense of humor. He was right. In chapter 3, 1st it has the Peach Cube’s story, and you find out she was married to the Grey Cube, but they got divorced because she found out he was cheating with the Pink Cube. Then it tells the story of the Pink Cube. She says she’s ignored her best friend, and that her love for the Grey Cube was meant to hurt others. Then you have the Grey Cube. He loved the Peach Cube, but he loved the Pink Cube more…He fell in and out of love. He got drunk, but he drove anyway. He killed the Blue Cube. He goes to jail. Chapter 4 is about the Pink Cube’s kids. They’re a great team. The Pink Cube becomes deaf, and she goes to the hospital. They wait for the Grey Cube’s freedom. At the end of the story, she says noone wants to hear the good things she’s done. In chapter 5, the Pink Cube explained that she had had many experiences, and that she would keep fighting till the day the Grey Cube is free. This story is beautiful, and I can’t wait to see chapter 6!
I love love love this game
It’s cute but in the second we learned to do new tricks and have been able to do them since and in the 3rd when we are the gray cube we can’t see the gray cube in one it stresses me out other than that I love it. It is cute,sad,and down right reality but in cubes I love it this tells you 4 people can love the same people that don’t love them back but in the end peach cube will be alone nah she has the blue cube watching her in haven.
This story is very compelling, it's sad to think that 4 people were fighting for love and the two best lovers, one of them was forgotten and the other died because of one of the others. It's been a very long time since I found a good game like this, especially one that had some meaning to it. All that I suggest is that you add the chapters sooner, it gets me annoyed. But otherwise... best indie game I played. 👍 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
