gblocks.jpg The still excellent TIGSource has posted a story about odd-looking PC indie title Gothic Blocks, in which "you guide a character going by the name of Ionesco who must reach the highest altitude possible in ninety seconds."

Apparently, the game was made using the Torque 2D engine, and is "similar to Free Lunch Design’s Icy Tower" - which we also haven't played, though we heartily support any game made by a developer called Free Lunch Design!

As for strategy to do well in the title: "A combination of mouse and keyboard controls can be used. Tap the left mouse button to jump and right click to freeze the ferries. Your avatar will always move towards the mouse cursor. The jump action is only allowed when you’re standing on solid ground or a frozen ferry." This game sounds... odd.
