Update 1.1.1

August 7

Initial release of the Rift support had some ugly blurriness to it which was somewhat caused by the antialiasing method we used (FXAA). This patch adds a new antialiasing method (SMAA) which will also look much better in the regular mode.

Check the changelog for rest of the fixes.

Reviews

“A simple idea has been taken and turned into a complex puzzle game, with stunning visuals and relaxing music. If you've not played this great indie title yet, I highly suggest you give it a go!”
10/10 – Glacier Gaming

“It’s peaceful, intellectually rewarding, and of all things a stress reliever. Qbeh-1: The Atlas Cube, is great.”
9/10 – Hooked Gamers

“Qbeh-1 take’s everything that made Portal’s puzzles great and mix’s it with elements of MineCraft and even Tetris and blends them all together to create something unique yet familiar. Its Rift implementation is the best we have seen yet from a previously released 2D game so much so that it’s hard to imagine that it was not originally designed with VR in mind. Qbeh-1 is well worth your time and money as it’s a modern classic and a must play experience.”
4/5 – Virtual Reality Reviewer

If you like what you see in the picture then you will like the game. It's a beutiful game with a great atmosphere to go with it. The game has five worlds with 6 levels on each one to go through, and each world gives new environmental touches, new puzzles to solve, and new unique cubes to play around with to solve those puzzles. And for those referencing the game to the 'free' one on Desura, while good, it doesn't even compare to the polish and content this game offers compared to the student project demo on desura. For the asking price i think QBEH-1: The Atlas Cube is a great purchase.

Qbeh-1 is an awesome labor of love from developers Liquid Flower. After playing the free original game on Desura, this "prequel" game goes above and beyond the scope of what came before. Boasting almost 10x the content including levels, mechanics, and music, Qbeh-1 is a must have for those who love puzzles in a laid back setting and serene atmosphere.

I had the oppertunity to play this in beta form and seeing this launch on Steam makes me very happy. This game is for fans of Portal, Zelda (puzzles), a slight hint of Minecraft, and zen.

The relaxing atmosphere of Qbeh-1 invites you to take your time and experiment with the cubes. I always feel like just looking around and searching for hidden secrets. Luckily, there are quite a few tucked away in interesting places.

I played the beta and I like this game. Music creates a very soothing atmosphere and visually it's really pretty to look at. Puzzles are easy at first and get trickier when you get further. The levels have checkpoints, but not around every corner so you won't continue right where you fell into nothingness, which I think is a good thing. Movement, jumping and overall sense of footing are done well. Solid work, thumbs up!
