The unquiet spirits I mentioned in last week’s blog seem to have been up to even more mischief before the arrival of the Ghostlight exorcists, as they have created some truly terrifying discounts on our games as part of the Steam Halloween Sale.

Hi everyone. It’s nearly Halloween, and once again the unquiet spirits that haunt the Ghostlight offices have arisen and taken over our Humble store listings. These ghostly fiends seem to have a taste for bargains, as they’ve slashed all our prices as part of the Humble Undead Sale.
As these seem to be unusually generous spirits, not only will you be getting a Steam Key but you can now choose what to do with half of your charity contribution. You can give that 5% to the charity of your choice, or keep the equivalent value as a cashback reward, which can be spent on future purchases during or after the sale.
I’m sure you’ll want to take advantage of these amazing offers as soon as possible, so I’ll quickly run through all the Ghostlight Games that make up part of the sale. :)
Flame Over (regular price £8.99) has a 80% discount
I’m sure you’ll agree that those are some great deals. So, make sure you pick these brilliant games before the exorcists arrive and the sale ends on the 28th October!
In other news, updates on the Ghostlight blog may be a little slow for the next few weeks as I will be away in Japan from the 25th October until the 16th November. If you want to keep up to date with my adventures, you can check out my Twitter and Instagram pages, where I’m sure I’ll be posting some photos. I also have access to the Ghostlight Instagram on my phone, so unless anyone stops me, it’s entirely possible one or two photos may find their way there too :).

It’s time for you to slice your way to the Nintendo Switch eShop as Cubixx is out now priced at just £5.99, $7.49 (US), € 6,69.
I’m personally incredibly excited for you to see the new and improved version of one of my favourite games I’ve worked on, so I really hope you all enjoy the classic arcade puzzling that Cubixx provides.
Think you're ready to take on the cube? Well grab your Cubot and fire your laser across 50 Arcade levels and see if you have what it takes to unlock the secrets within. To succeed you will need to evade and annihilate deadly enemies & use your lightning fast reflexes to the fullest! This is a journey where only the best will survive!
If this wasn’t enough, your skills will be pushed to the limit in the brand new “Challenges” mode. Here you will find 50 bespoke challenges that will really test your new-found Cubixx skills to the max. These Challenges will require you to chase the highest scores, beat the fastest times, outsmart the bad guys & much more!
On top of that there are over 150 hi-score tables across the 3 brand new Attack modes: Score Attack, Line Attack & Time Attack. You can also grab some friends & play up to 4 local multiplayer co-op, in Arcade & Attack modes or engage in 4-player battles against your frenemies in Cubixx Deathmatch!
It’s a really addictive classic, but don’t just take our word for it. Check out these incredible reviews on PC & PS3:
Eurogamer gave it 8/10, saying “The heroic thing about it all is that Laughing Jackal manages to reinvent Qix in a way that has evidently been completely beyond Taito for the past 30 years. And if that's not a fitting tribute, I don't know what is.”
ZTGD gave it 85%, saying “Cubixx HD is a worthy investment that offers up tons of challenging game modes in a package that not only looks great, but plays great as well.”
One UP Gaming gave it 5 Stars, saying “Cubixx HD is a wonderful reinvention of a retro style that has seen countless iterations over the years, while managing to define itself as its own title. With fast, addictive levels and visuals that mesh brilliantly with the energetic soundtrack, this is one game you can’t afford to miss.”
The Sixth Axis gave it 8/10, saying “... ultimately it’s a game founded on superbly honed, solid mechanics that even stretched over an impressive amount of game types doesn’t ever really feel tired”
Defunct Games gave it a B+, saying “Just like the old school arcade games that inspired it, Cubixx HD is easy to pick up and impossible to put down.”
We’ve also made some tweaks to the game to ensure that the Nintendo Switch version is even better than its previous two releases. For example, new starting points are unlocked every single level, rather than every 5 levels.
So hurry over to the eShop to get for the best version of this fantastic game!
