And I wrote this whole thing without making any references to biology or DNA.

My need for puzzle games is insatiable, constantly fed by the teams of enslaved designers I have generating me new Slitherlinks and Doodle Fit levels, as Telegraph cryptic crossword setters weep as their fingertips bleed from setting me more and more clues. Gathering them all a few seconds pause in their toils is Splice, a new puzzler from Auditorium developers, Cipher Prime. Will it do?>

It also makes me really hungry for black liquorice jelly beans for some reason.

I just got done playing an all-too-brief demo of Auditorium developer Cipher Prime’s new sounds-and-shapes-a-majig Splice, and I’m feeling quite charmed – somewhat like a snake in a pot who’s trying to decide if he should buy a videogame or not. And, much like the proverbial snake, I’m leaning (and perhaps gyrating a bit) very strongly toward yes.

Product Release - Valve
Splice, the latest puzzle game from the creators of Auditorium and Fractal, is now available on Steam!

Splice is an experimental and artistic puzzler. Every level ("strand") consists of a number of cells that you will need to rearrange into a target structure in several moves ("splices"). Exploration and experimentation are key in determining how the curious little cells react to each other. Predict the sequence of splices you'll have to make in order to successfully arrange each strand. Solve your way to the final strands and you'll be left with a heady sense of mental accomplishment!

On Wednesday evening, the winners of the 2011 Intel Level Up Game Demo Contest were officially announced. Among those winners was Splice placing best in the Puzzle Genre category. The announcement was made during the Video Games Live concert at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo. Representatives from four of the winning teams, including Cipher Prime Studios, were able to attend E3 and appeared on stage during VGL to receive their awards.

Demos of the games were made available to play before the show at the Intel Interactive Exhibit in the lobby of the Nokia Theatre. With the support of Valve, all winning game entries have been made available as demos free to download on Steam.

Splice is currently available for pre-purchase at a sale price of $8.99. Order today and you'll also receive the Splice Soundtrack free! Offers end when Splice becomes available for download on June 14.

Well, we’ve got some very cool news! Development of Splice is going swimmingly and we’re happy to say that we were featured in Kotaku’s Indie Spotlight yesterday!



We put up a few screenshots of our latest build on our games page and there’s a new gameplay trailer available through the Kotaku article. (More media will come in the next few days.)

We can tell you that the game will feature almost a hundred strands (puzzles), many of which are dastardly difficult to solve! You’ll also be able to enjoy fourteen new Dain Saint joints that you’ll be humming all day. Splice is an incredibly immersive experience, and if you’re a puzzle person, we promise you frustration and sweet, sweet mental victories!

The game is going to be released on Steam for PC/Mac on June 13, and pre-orders (which will include Splice’s official soundtrack and a discount) will be available June 6!

Stay tuned for more Splice!
