20 Games Like Q.U.B.E. - Director's Cut()



Recommended by brazzjazz

In Q.U.B.E. you also progress from separate levels / puzzles to the next one. Instead of glowing balls, you solve puzzles based on cubes. It feels a little more dynamic and also less brainy than The Turing Test, as there is less intense philosophical content, but more jumping and movement. Art and level design are equally minimalistic and yet beautiful. Make sure to get the Director's Cut which adds a story and some extra puzzles to the formerly barebones game.

Quern is a first person puzzle adventure with captivating story and beautiful graphics. Quern refreshes the genre with flexible gameplay and reuseable puzzle mechanics. The visuals and the music combine traditional and modern elements providing a unique mood for the game.

One of the specialities of Quern is that the tasks to be solved are not managed as separate, individual and sequential units, but as a complex entity, amongst which the players may wander and experiment freely. Often a bad or seemingly irrational result may bring the player closer to the final solution, if those are reconsidered and thought over again later, in the possession of the knowledge gained during the game.
