The Indie Fund's first release, Q.U.B.E., is also its first success story: after just a few days on PC download, the first-person puzzle game has generated enough dough to repay its 90k investment from the Fund. Now, Toxic Games is looking to launch the title on other platforms, including iOS. "We're currently prototyping an iOS version, and a Mac version has been in the works for months now," a studio representative told Joystiq.

Q.U.B.E. is a fascinating puzzler that has you, as a telekinesis-wielding dude, rotating and generally fiddling with the size and shape of colored blocks in sterile rooms. It's a style of game that we don't really have on iOS, so we're stoked about the possibility and excited about what it could open up on the platform it ever does see a release. This isn't exactly a match-three, you know?

    sorta like portal but not... this would be an insta-buy and look amazing on my 4S!

    The visual aesthetic reminds me a lot of portal (1)... only with cubes all over the place of course. Looks like an odd game but fun, sure hope it makes it through to iOS

    I've never heard of this game, but after looking at that single screenshot, I immediately thought Portal. (darn, Timothy said it first)

    I hope whatever control scheme they decide to incorporate is up-to-par.

    Looks cool.  In fact, I like the look so much that I'm going to go out and buy an insane amount of styrofoam and cover every surface in my home with cubes.  What about all the benzine and styrene and HCFCs?  They may be toxic, but I love that fresh, clean smell.  Bring on the cubes!

    This seems based in the movie "Cube" which is extremely intense and highly recommended

    I bought this game on Steam and been having a LOT of fun!  It has a great variety of puzzle types to keep it fresh throughout the journey, and the puzzles do get very challenging!  If this game does come to iOS it's a Day One purchase for me!
