During my many years as a gamer I’ve never played a title wherein a goblin is the main character in a story, but that’s not the only reason why The Path of Motus may be a keeper.
Three years in the making, the story centers on Motus, a young goblin who, though raised in a small village, has big dreams. Placing adversity in his path are numerous bullies who use the power of their negative words and influences in an attempt to stop his progress. As a fan of platform and side scrolling titles, I’ll definitely give the game a shot, especially since it has more than button mashing ambitions:
“When I was younger, I was interested in what made bullies act so aggressive,” said The Path of Motus game designer Michael Hicks. “As time went on I began to befriend some of them, and learned they had either been bullied themselves earlier in life, had really bad family lives, or were just simply jealous of other people; I kept all of this in mind as I designed the game. As Motus gradually grows from a child to an adult, you’ll get to explore the motivations of the characters you meet, and I expect you’ll have some surprising moments in the process! I feel the discussion around this topic often ignores the root causes of bullying, so hopefully this game lets us see how our own actions potentially contribute to this issue.”
The Path of Motus hits Xbox One, Steam and PlayStation 4 on July 17. Check out the release trailer and tell us what you think!

First person puzzle adventures, at its best, will challenge gamers to the nth degree, and what makes Q.U.B.E. 2 an interesting adventure lies in the mystery behind archeologist Amelia Cross’ journey. Awakening to an alien world with no memory how she landed in the area, Cross, must navigate herself in a new environment and find her way home. As she overcomes the challenges that cross her path, Cross gets closer to discovering the truth, and with 80 puzzles to spare, our heroine has a ton of work to do.
“With Q.U.B.E. 2 we have pushed the boundaries of what a small independent team can create in a first person puzzle game,” said Toxic Games Managing Director Dan Da Rocha. “In addition to creating incredible new puzzles, we also focused on narrative from this game’s inception. Amelia’s emotional journey throughout the adventure has given the puzzles a greater thematic depth and spurred us on to design some truly unique challenges. We think this has truly elevated the gameplay experience of Q.U.B.E. 2 to another level.”

The sequel, which features new characters, has gamers playing archaeologist Amelia Cross as she attempts to escape an alien world with fellow stranded scientist Emma Sutcliffe.
“We’re very proud of how Q.U.B.E. 2 has shaped up – no pun intended – after nearly five years of development,” said Toxic Games Managing Director Dan Da Rocha. “When we made the first Q.U.B.E. we were still students, but after a half decade of real industry experience we’ve put together the kind of premium product we’ve always dreamed of. We hope you have as much fun playing it as we did making it.”
Armed with a unique pair of gloves that helps her manipulate the environment, Amelia must manipulate as well as become acclimated to her new environment in order to find a way back hope.
