Cuboid Downloadable Content: Get Your Cuboid On

Michael Robinson's Avatar Posted by Michael Robinson on Jun 10, 2009 // Director of Communications, Creat Studios

Welcome to another action-packed, fun-filled blog from your wacky pals at Creat Studios and TikGames. You know why tomorrow is so special? Because at long last, the Cuboid DLC will be released in the US and surrounding territories. NowSoon, PSN gamers in North and South America can be as cool as your counterparts in Europe! There are three great options to choose from that all you Cuboid fans should be aware of, so let’s get to it, shall we?

Cuboid DLC

First up is the Cuboid Booster Pack, which contains 33 new levels that will test even the best players’ skills, rewarding you with new trophies. This pack will cost you just $2.99.

Option number two is the Cuboid Level Editor where you become the level designer and challenge others with your own custom levels. Players can either create a brand new level from scratch, or improve upon any existing level, created by other players or taken from the original campaigns. User-created levels can be uploaded to PSN where they will be made available to other players (who have downloaded the free patch). Players can also earn trophies for creating their own levels, and for rating the levels created by others. The Cuboid Level Editor will cost $3.99.

Cuboid DLC 2 Cuboid DLC 3

And finally, for those of you who tend to be either indecisive, or just want it all, the Cuboid Bundle Pack includes both the Booster Pack (33 new levels) and the Level Editor. And how much will all of this additional Cuboid goodness cost, you might ask? You can get the Bundle Pack for the low, low price of just $4.99! How can you go wrong?

I also wanted to let you know that custom music support is coming for Cuboid as part of a free patch download, so get your playlist ready.

I’ll be sticking around for a while to address any questions, comments, complaints or compliments you guys and gals might have, so fire away!

Any updates on the rather awesome two new Creat games… Especially Mushroom wars?
Shame the cuboid dlc got delayed, but better have something correct and fixed rather than broken… I just love cuboid…
And does Creat have further PSN-only games, because honestly, you guys + Pixel Junk (Q Games) + That Game Company + A couple of Sony’s internal studios = PURELY AWESOME PSN GAMES!!!!!!
Top quality PSN games!
Thanks for everything!

    Thanks so much for all the kind words! Digger and Mushroom Wars will both be out later this summer, likely end of July or August. But Smash Cars, which I think is our best game yet – by far – is coming out very shortly! We have lots of great stuff in store for the PSN, so thanks for all your suppport! :-)


+ Elebumm on June 10th, 2009 at 12:31 pm said:

cant wait! and I saw the E3 trailer for smash cars. And all I gotta say is.. Will it have Online multiplayer? when will it be out?

    Not only will Smash Cars have online multiplayer, but you will be able to play up to five people online! So, that\’s you, plus others – 6 total! (how\’s that for advanced math?)

    Smash Cars should be out either the end of June or early July.

Well i got pretty excited when i heard the Cuboid DLC comes out tomorrow.. but then it got delayed until next week when i was reading the post comments here as well… its alright though, a week delayed is not so bad and wont hurt as well, if its worth it, then its worth it, just do your job and get it done like i would say.. but as of right now i got other games to play right now to kill the time and days like inFAMOUS, Red Faction Guerilla, Prototype and many more. :D

Does this game support IN-GAME XMB MUSIC?

    + Michael Robinson on June 10th, 2009 at 1:26 pm said:

    Cuboid will feature custom music support once the free patch is released – coming at the same time as the DLC in one week, two max!


+ JimInPT on June 10th, 2009 at 1:38 pm said:

Please add me to the list of those requesting that you turn down the icon music when browsing PSN games in the XMB – turn it down a lot, please!

When scrolling through PSN games, Magic Ball (especially) is ear-splitting compared to other titles.

I wish Sony had established “VU Meter” standards for normalizing volume levels in all PS3 games so they’re roughly the same – Savage Moon has a similar problem, but not nearly as bad as Magic Ball. Music CD mastering levels are pretty standardized; it’d be great for games to do the same.

And thanks for all the great games, Creat!

wow there has been a lot of deleting the non-positive comments. I didn’t leave a negative comment but the ones I see missing were not explitive or unnecessarily rude. They were just giving their opinions way to have a biased blog. You got to take the good with the bad. Gamers definately notice when its just a fluff peice as there will always be something negative from someone. So if you see coments free of any negativity then you know something is up.

But I will still get this addon on day one when ever that is. Cuboid is a great puzzle game.

As someone mentioned above, it would be really nice to be able spin the camera all the way around. It’s not really NECESSARY or wouldn’t really increase the playability or anything just would be nice to get a different perspective if you want it.

I just wanted to thank Michael Robinson for answering a lot of comments and questions regarding this post. it is refreshing to see replies to almost half of the comments.

Thank You.

I have yet to play or purchase this game, but the support it is getting might change that. There have just been so many games to play, although I did pick up Magic Ball and its a fun game.

Keep up the great work and support Creat team!

Nice update. I really like this game and I am surprised by the level creator.


+ KAKwit on June 10th, 2009 at 3:11 pm said:

I grabbed the Bundle Pack straight away when it was released here (AU). Some of the new levels hurt my brain! I’m admittedly a bit thick, but I did 100% the game prior to this pack and I’m finding these new levels to be very challenging, with lots of switches and back tracking through the level to complete them ‘n stuff. I think it will take some effort to get through these.

The level editor is great too – nice and simple to use. I started just playing around and soon had a level that I thought was reasonably interesting. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to upload that level, or download any others. Pity it was released with such an issue, but I’m glad it is being addressed quickly. Very good support from Create / Michael.

    Glad you are liking the Cuboid DLC. Our team worked hard on that content, and I love the level editor. We feel terrible about the problem at launch, but now that the free patch has been released, all issues should be corrected, so hopefully everyone will enjoy – and everyone in the US will enjoy very shortly :-)

+ NHDrumline17 on June 10th, 2009 at 6:52 pm said:

I really respect you guys more than most of the developers on the PSN. Not only do you guys give your games support, but you also take advantage of most of the PS3’s awesome features: (trophies, invites, in game music, DLC). I tip my theoretical hats to you guys, because it’s developers like you that make the PSN awesome.

This will be a day one purchase! (Still loving magic ball by the way, its a great game to play with a girlfriend who is not that skilled at video games)

@ Michael Robinson

Could you guys make a patch for the Magic Ball game that tell you how may “bonus points” coins you have collected? I’m trying to get the trophy and it just never seems to work, I have through the all the level that come with the game, excluding the DLC, in one go and still nothing.

Creat is quickly becoming one of my favourite developers. Although Cuboid is not of interest to me personally, I appreciate the DLC, and the reasonable pricing of same across all of your releases thus far. Other Developers/Publishers should take note (hello, Capcom).

My fav is Magic Ball– I’ll give you a pass as far as harassing you about the next MB pack, because I recognize you’re trying to spread the love amongst all your kids, as well as getting ready to drop a new baby tomorrow.

I’ve really enjoyed your game and will probably pick up the DLC. Would it be safe to assume that the free patch is coming tomorrow since it will be necessary to have it to play uploaded levels?

I’m looking forward to playing Cuboid with custom soundtracks! Thank you in advance for a welcome addition.

Excellent, can’t wait. A quick question: how has the response been in Europe with the level creator? Are there very many user-created levels available, and will those be accessible from the US?

    + Michael Robinson on June 10th, 2009 at 12:20 pm said:

    And here is your answer: YES! EU and US PSN users will indeed be able to share their own Cuboid custom created levels! How cool is that?! Now I might have to buy it too! ;-)

Awesome news! I loved the original levels and am eagerly looking forward to the new levels.
One quick question, how do the new levels compare to the previous ones in difficulty? I completed all of the original 66 levels by the end of the night when it was first released and even found the expert levels to be pretty simple (though there were a couple that initially did pose a problem).

Thanks again for the wonderful games and wonderful support Creat have offered.

Hey everyone! I am very sorry to have to break this news, but there has been a last-minute, unexpected delay with the Cuboid DLC, so it will not be released tomorrow. We are only looking at a one week delay, two at the absolute most.

I will be logging back on here shortly to start to answer your posts. I am terribly sorry, again, for this delay, and we thank you so much for your patience and support. We promise it will be worth it, cheers!

I’m confused – is this the same content that we had on the european store or is it new?

Also is the price lowered, as I remember it was a lot more expensive on the european store, which is why I haven’t bought it.

    + Michael Robinson on June 10th, 2009 at 11:34 am said:

    There were two issues, unfortunately, when the Cuboid DLC was released in Europe, but both, I am happy to say, have been corrected. The pricing was incorrect when it first launched, but people who bought it at the wrong price have since been credited. And a previously undetected bug was preventing gamers in EU from up and downloading custom levels. Sony released a free patch just today that should completely fix this issue. We are very sorry for these problems, but all should be well now, and going forward :-)

What a great game! I loved playing Cuboid and can’t wait to try the new levels and trying my hand at creating a few new levels myself.

+ plaztiksyke on June 10th, 2009 at 9:43 am said:

Can you lower the volume of the music when selecting the game in the XMB? When browsing through my games, Cuboid and Magic Ball are always super loud! Loud doesn’t make up for lossy 16-bit audio.

Besides higher quality audio assets, fly-through on the levels or following the block as it falls would be nice. The camera is just a little too “fixed”, and the game’s price point demands little production value touches like these. Otherwise, this could just be a WiiWare game.

I really liked cuboid, and my husband and I love playing Magic Ball in local co-op. Please keep making games with local co-op! Also make sure the trophies are balanced so it’s possible to get most of them in local co-op, this was a major problem in Magic Ball with the Collect 200 Bonus Points trophy. (There’s no bonus levels in co-op mode.)

I hope this constructive criticism helps! Keep up the good work!
