We live in an amazing time. Computers are becoming smarter and more powerful, and more tangible items are being turned into digital data. Science predicts that within the next hundred years artificial intelligence (AI) will be as smart as humans. Imagine the possibilities if this trend continues for thousands of years.
In the distant future, AI will be so common in technology that even a single pixel in an image file may be controlled by one. Pixel: ru² is a tale of a sentient pixel that is tasked with eliminating a virus and restoring corrupted image files. Being a pixel isn’t easy; you’ll face infected pixels, puzzles that require color and gravity manipulation, and precision platforming challenges. You can complete your mission as efficiently as possible, or you can let your curiosity lead you to bits of information that may reveal the bigger picture.
Pixel: ru² (are you squared) is a game that is a combination of a platformer, a shooter, and a puzzle game. The gameplay features color theory based puzzle and combat mechanics and gravity manipulation based puzzle and platforming mechanics. There are a lot of simple systems stacked on top of each other which makes it easy to learn, but difficult to master.
We're very happy to announce that Pixel: ru² (are you squared) will be at PAX East! We're in the booth for our studio, C63 Industries (#1193).
Come visit us in Boston from April 11-13th and play the game on our famous train PC! We'll have a new tutorial and three challenging levels, one for each day of PAX.
If you can beat one of the levels, you'll win a copy of the game! Can't make it to PAX East? You still have a chance to win a copy of the game by sharing and commenting on one of our other social media posts: Facebook

@ExcalibursZone You might want to wait for the new build. Not only will it be more polished, but 30 FPS is nice for recording video.

120 frames per second! One of the many improvements coming in the next build of Pixel: ru². T.co
