Not working for me I'm afraid (v.092 windows) Game loads and I'm looking at a door, as soon as I move forward I hear a door hiss but the camera goes into a spin. I can pause the game, which stops the spin, but restarting spins again..

Maybe you havr controller plugged in?
I liked the game very much. Only played the trail version though. level 1 was a bit to easy even though it was an intro level. also im thinking it would be nice if the sliding was a bit smoother, other than that, i don't have anything to say
Thank you very much. Yeah now the slide is a little laggy, couse I'm trying to optimize the game as much as possible. Maybe I should try something in the middle :)
I loved the atmosphere and the puzzles were great too!
This was a fun little puzzle game, good design, and the puzzles were self explanitory!! We can't wait to play the full version!!
These puzzles picked up in difficulty really quickly! Left a quality of life feedback in this one :)
I made a todo list on the game page for the v0.92 and added you suggestions. I'll have to redo a big part of the platform moving to fix some bigger issues and hopefully after that for example the 3 undo will be enabled
I can't get the game to launch on OS X.
I have a 2.9 GHz i7 with 16GB RAM, 1536MB intel graphics card.
I changed to "very low" graphics setting & the game just hangs on a black screen. My cursor turns into the spinning beach ball.
hey I figured out how to get past the demo limitations. All you have to do is spam space and get on the rock right above level 2 after that head over to the right where level 1 is and there should be a hole in the barriar if you get it right there I couldnt get my screen recorder working but you should probably be putting a dome around the end of the trial version insted of just a wall. Oh and you can actully bug around to the last level and not even have to do anything before that. Just wanted to share this with you knowing you need people to buy your game and not just cheat around it
Thank you, I'll fix these in the next version :)
after what I assume is the "tutorial", the game loads and freezes up...
Thank you for the feedback!
After that loads the openworld part of the game. Is your rig meets the minimum system req? If yes, please describe your system and I'll try to look up, what's the problem.
Heard about this on gaming on Linux, it looks like fun! I'll buy a copy as soon as payday comes around :-)
How you mean laggy? Is your system reach the minimum req? Try to lower the graphics from the options menu!
And yeah this is an early access version therefore I'm fixing bugs you guys reporting. :)
The source code wont be public soon, that's sure. Maybe after I released the game on all mayor platforms. Maybe next year... we'll see. honestly, i dont have plan for that.
runs well on
all settings to ultra with a resolution of 1280x800
Please increase the rendering distance and change the footsteps sound and pick a music that fits the game
Thank you for the video card info! This was really useful!
The footsteps volume will be generally decreased in the next version, and about the music I can offer a music volume/mute button. If you turn off the music it will be more like the "The Witness" :)
Holy hell fubenalvo, I was expecting a few updates in the early access version, but this is incredible! More than worth the $2 you're asking for it. The new puzzles are fantastic, the interconnectedness of the whole world is amazing, the brief but easy to understand tutorials and environmental storytelling are outstanding and the new music fits so well. You've really outdone yourself with this one and I look forward to diving into the other half I wasn't able to get to! (For those wondering the EA version is well over two hours long even if you already know what's going on)
So far so good! I love the calm relaxing music and the beautiful design. I only played a few levels so far but I will play the rest soon. However I did encounter a glitch. The doors controlled by the open world puzzles were open allready and I didn't need to unlock them. Other then that really enjoying it so far.
Huge fan of games that require some brainpower (like Valve/Steam's Portal games for one example), so I'm really loving the look of this game thus far. Massive potential here, for sure... Very much looking forward to seeing where you go with it from here. Keep up the great work. :)
(Apologies for the multiple-posts. I've deleted the duplicates. Wasn't updating the display when I tried to post.)
Thank you, I'll try to make a really good and polished game now. Soo if you have ideas or found a bug, thats more then welcomed.
Aaand after finishing the game (download the latest version for it v0.84) please tell me what you think about: is the game need more level?
Wow, I really was impressed. Love this game. Felt very much like the Witness and I kept wanting to move forward to explore this island. I'll be watching development and I am super excited for a complete game. So rad.
Pardon my french but Damn! I loved this game, and like Mikey said making a puzzle game in first person must have been hard! I played only the first two levels but it was such a great experience!

Am, just a question. I'm making game as a hobby in my freetime, but I put in Steam them for $1 at the end. This makes me Pro? I don't feeling myself as pro :D or is it fit in slightly into the HOBBY category?
First person puzzle games must be so hard to put together, so I immediately salute you for that effort alone!
This game is awesome. The visuals are gorgeous, the relaxing music helps to keep a lid on my raw emotions when I'm failing miserably, the puzzles are all doable but still challenging enough to cause some head scratching moments and the little hints of a plot underpinning the whole thing is a nice extra surprise.
I really do adore what there is of this game so far, it's got bucket loads of potential and I'll be around to see you get there! My only suggestion would be to maybe include a few extra options with regards to graphics quality because my poor potato PC stumbled a few times during my playthrough haha!
Keep up the awesome work, I'm gonna get back to trying to beat the last few levels I haven't wrapped my brain around yet =)
Hey this looks so good! Design o f the puzzles and areas looks great and nice chill piano music helps to make me not rage when I get stuck haha. Maybe don't need so many balls to get to the end before the door opens, but thats just me lol. Keep up the awesome work!
FluxCaves Pt. 2 | They're Getting More Difficult!
"I finally got stuck on a level. It was bound to happen at some point."
While I had some minor frame issues, Flux Caves is a pretty neat puzzle game. All the fun of pipe puzzles, with all the visual appeal of a first person marble game. And somehow wrapped up in a relaxing bow with the pleasant scenery and music. There's some potential in this and I hope the final product goes well.Good job, dev.
Thank you for the great video Mr Skysen, I'm glad you enjoyed the game! Before you continue your adventure you should download the actual version 0.6 or wait for v0.7. These contains a lots of bugfix which was related with ice movement. And yeah, some new leveles too
The game runs well. it's my laptop ASUS ROG GL503GE with its 8 GB of RAM. no lag. 60 or above fps average. Though it's GTX 1050 Ti cheapskate intel!!! whahat? how it could run well?! it's not that RTX you know!
just, slow loading for 1st time only, because it's not SSD. built in SSHD 1TB.
anyway, wow! Amazing Duper Awesome!!!
Hey, this sounds really good. I worked a lot to optimize it :D which graphics quality setting you used?
wait what cpu does the pavilion 500 desktop have???
From the looks, this reminds me of Infinifactory, if it turns out half as well I'll be happy. :)
Did not heard about that game, but I'll check it out. Thank you for the tip, and I'll try my best to grow up for the expectations! :)
I didn't play all levels ATM but here's what I have to say about the game. Sorry in advance if I make a suggestion about things that are in the part I didn't play :-) But first, nice addictive gameplay! Reminds me about Pipe Dream and Sokoban!
There could some block rotating device in harder levels.
I had some issue for pushing blocks beside each other. If we are supposed to be able to do so, maybe considering activating the push from a little further away from the blocks.
I think the player could jump the height of 1 cube. Like that, you could remove most of the stairs in the game field :-)
Maybe the ball gathering lights could be more visible. Like a screen beside the exit door, or even directly on it.
Yeah you are right, the basic mechanisms comes form Sokoban and the pipe games. I dont know why I skipped them as refference from the game description. Now I fixed it :)
The block rotating device is a good idea, I'll figure out something today.
For pushing block besied each other, I made a reset mechanism for all puzzles. But also want to make an Undo Last step feature, but that have some problematic technical part, what I have to figure out before implementing. :)
And thank you for the comments Blitz! As soon the game have rotating platform, I'll inform you :D
Great concept fubenalvo!! Definitely unique and i'm looking forward to how far this game can potentially go if you add a level editor. I do hope that you consider creating a storybased game soon though...? Again, like the last comment, I found that the elevator made the pipe block 'hover' a little bit and had to reset the level. But that aside, the graphics and sound effects are amazing for a free indie game. You're very good at creating a 3D enviroment! Here's my play through (I think OBS struggled at some parts).
thank you! finally I found today what's the problem with the elevator. This wasnt an easy one to figure out :D
The elevator lifts up the yellow when the block is on the edge, and the elevator come up after that. So nooow I can fix it. this is the real beauty of game development :D
The second open-world puzzle doesn't work for me. One of the block seems to be floating a bit above the ground. (Probably caused by the elevator)
Also when I move a block on the elevator, while the elevator is moving upwards, the block disappears in the ground.
Which block making this, the orange crystal block or the pipe one?
I'll check this, thank you for the feedback! ;)
Super cool game you need to publish it in steam
The long term plan is ofc the Steam release, but before that I have to do a lot. I mean more level, hidden collectibles, story, but I have tons of ideas, which I hope will fit in the game too :)
Proboably the game will be on Steam in this year. I can't even say a more precise date yet, because I don't know when it's gonna be finished.
Aaand ofc I'm glad you liked it! Thank you! ;)
Had some issues with one puzzle but overall it's been a good experience. :)
Thank you for the video! I'll check the level05 for this problem. Probably there was an error when you hit the reset button, and after that everything crashed in the background. :P
(x-post from GJ)
Damn dude, wasn't expecting this after Neon.Code, but it's awesome so far! The puzzles have a good amount of complexity to them and do a great job of explaining themselves. The visual style is really cool as well, love the puzzles in-world kind of situation and it reminds me a bit of The Witness and Talos Principle. Looking forward to the later versions!
