Flux8 has been Greenlit on Steam!

That’s right! Canalside Studios’ upcoming magnet-based puzzle-platformer “Flux8” has been Greenlit on Steam!

 

On behalf of the whole development team here at Canalside Studios, we want to say a massive thank you to everyone who helped us to get Flux8 Greenlit!

 

Whether you voted for the game on Steam Greenlight, followed Flux8 on social media or even played the free demo on Gamejolt, your help and support is greatly appreciated!

What happens next?

 

From here, we’ll continue building and polishing Flux8 until it’s ready to release, which will hopefully be sometime around the end of July 2017! In the meantime, don’t forget to follow Flux8 on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest updates (and to see all of the hilarious, game breaking bugs we find!).

 

You can also check out the fortnightly devblogs to see what we’re working on and how your feedback is helping us improve the game. From level design and assets to code and audio, it’s all covered!

 

Don’t forget, you can still check out the Free Flux8 Demo on Gamejolt! We’re currently featured on the website and have had just under 1000 plays! This is an early-access build of the game, so expect to see a few bugs and backwards-facing bow ties. The demo is available in both 32bit and 64bit versions for Windows, OS X and Linux. We hope you enjoy the demo and remember, your feedback is valuable to us!

 

Still not convinced? We’ve had an influx (see what I did there?) of Youtuber’s playing the demo recently. We’ve compiled all of the videos we’ve found so far into one convenient playlist which you can check out below! Although if you are planning on playing the demo yourself, watching the solutions on Youtube first may take some of the fun out of it!

Thank you again for your continued support… we’ll see you on release day!
