Ask us for a review key to dive into the Lovecraftian horror story everyone is talking about!


"In addition to the level design, the wonderful music, excellent audio scape and balanced mixing make the unsettling environments truly scary. The alien cube creates a tense atmosphere that repeatedly pushed me to the edge of my seat" -- The Escapist

"The feeling of anxiety and fear is also fuelled by the fact that the puzzles can only be solved by exploration. The idea of not being able to find out what danger lurks behind a certain door, or being afraid of a roar or any other sound heard from the walls puts us on alert." -- Alessandro Adinolfi, Tom's Hardware (7/10)

"The Alien Cube manages to thread the needle of keeping tension and mystery high through a mix of carefully scattered story and surreal environments, while still providing the satisfaction of gazing into the eyes of cosmic dread. " -- Screenrant

" The story in Alien Cube is PHENOMENAL. THE ALIEN CUBE is one of the best horror games of the year! In fact, this indie game- made by ONE PERSON!- 'gets' horror better than even the classic AAA horror franchises! It's really quite impressive!" -- David Jaffe

Pedro Peña, Cosas de Chicas Gamers" --Don't be surprised if you spend a lot of time, when the game allows it, delighting yourself with every detail and view of the landscape, with every play of light and shadows, because it's normal to be enraptured by such a spectacular work."

Veronica Lorenzini, Tech Princess" -- Alessandro Guzzo has been brilliant and really made a remarkable title that brings honour to the horror genre. It is a well-balanced and well-crafted game, which offers the audience a horror product without losing sight of the storytelling element."

José Antonio Calvo, 33 Bits (7/10)" -- The experience makes me feel happy, and brings to my mind the uncountable hours I have spent reading tales and stories from the author of Providence."

Tactical Potato" -- One of the most visually stunning indie games I've played, the sound design is on point and the scares had me on the edge of my seat"

IGP" -- Well... this is quite beautiful. Absolutely stunning, and with great music to accompany it- I feel safe now!"
