BLACKHOLE 1.9 AVAILABLE NOW

Dear Endera Agents,
The newest patch is now available for everyone using Windows, MacOS and Linux. This new update is focused on stability and performance issues instead of adding new features. We have revamped a lot of internal systems to create a smoother gameplay experience. It has been a really long and ongoing process over the last whole year (unbelievable).

Besides fixing the smaller bugs, we deactivated uploading your previous progress on Challenge Vault server. From now on you can't upload your older times and you have to achieve them again in order to get them uploaded. The previous solution had been fair until the newcomers started to be affected by ghost-players, who weren't playing BLACKHOLE but just started the game recently. The times for LEVEL 10 and SOE LEVEL 1 are purged for every player as the replays and times unfortunately got corrupted by this update.

We tried to avoid this purge as much as we could, but unfortunately the changes made in our game recently unabled us to solve this in another way.

We hope you all will enjoy our improvements. You can find the changelog below.

“Superb: A hallmark of excellence. There may be flaws, but they are negligible and won't cause massive damage to what is a supreme title.”
9/10 – Destructoid

“BLACKHOLE advertises itself as a hardcore platformer and it’s definitely justified. The game will frustrate you at times but also bring you loads of enjoyment with all of the humor and clever levels.”
9/10 – 3rd Strike

“Blackhole is easily one of the best platforming puzzlers in recent memory. It’s gorgeous hand-drawn visuals, polished design and unforgiving, yet incredibly rewarding difficulty make it a game that stands above the rest and delivers a rare AAA-quality experience that most big companies can’t even live up to.”
9/10 – Gamer Headlines

About This Game

BLACKHOLE is an award-winning hardcore platformer with over 15 hours of story-driven sci-fi comedy and gravity-twisting puzzles. Complete Edition now available!

When the crew of the spaceship Endera is sucked into a black hole, it seems like the end. Fortunately, the ship crashes on Entity – an unidentified object resembling a planet. After the crash, the first member to wake up is the guy who makes coffee for the crew - you! There’s no one around and your only ally is Auriel, the ship’s computer’s sarcastic A.I. Together, you’ll need to come up with a plan to fix the spaceship, save the others and become heroes of planet Earth by closing the black hole once and for all. It won’t be an easy task, because the mysterious caves, lost cities, towering mountains and deep forests are full of tricky, gravity-defying puzzles and deadly traps.

Main features:

  • More than 90 levels in 6 dimensions to explore
  • Hundreds of secrets to discover and puzzles to solve
  • A fully-voiced sci-fi comedy with a cool soundtrack
  • Pixel-perfect controls for both keyboard and gamepad
