Planet Cube: Edge is a 2D run 'n' gun platformer that throws players into a peaceful, cube-shaped world disrupted by an unknown force.

Welcome to the Planet Cube! A peaceful, cube-shaped world which is about to be disrupted by an unknown force. After waking up to chaos in the Underwater Weapons Research Facility, the skilled engineer Edge takes to arms with a prototype Photon Blaster. Join his quest, as he treads through the intricate Complex to find out the identity and purpose of the Invaders before they overtake the planet. Can he alone restore Planet Cube to its previous state?

Make way through the convoluted Weapons Research Facility and tear it apart section by section. Fight hordes of invading enemies, dodge hazards, and avoid traps, all while navigating the maze-like way to the surface as you save your fellow Cubemates from certain doom.

Quick responses and agile thinking will be your arsenal in this challenging adventure! Fell into a pit, or got caught by a pesky enemy? Don't worry! Respawns are bountiful and immediate, and tries are unlimited! Planet Cube: Edge may be tough, but you have what it takes.

The art of Planet Cube: Edge has been crafted with meticulous care. From the distant seascapes of the ocean floor, to minute nuts and bolts of the Underwater Facility, every pixel has been placed with the outmost attention to detail. You’re in for a pixel and animation spectacle, as you traverse the lush scenery, and face the fluid moving enemy sprites.

Sunna Entertainment’s epic places the arts of precision and skill front and centre, dressing the entire adventure in beautifully handcrafted pixel art. It’s a classic combination of being easy to learn but hard to master, delivering the kind of addictive ‘just one more go’ flow indie core players thrive on.

A playable PC demo is currently available on Steam.

“The moment we first set eyes upon Planet Cube: Edge our team was in love,” says Firestoke CEO Paul Farley. “The retro visual style was what immediately attracted us, but once we started playing we couldn't put the gamepad down! We are therefore over the moon to be working with the talented team at Sunna Entertainment to bring this amazing game to PC and Console players across the globe early in 2023. Planet Cube: Edge represents the unashamed joy over unabated violence mantra we live by at Firestoke andis the perfect example of the kind of game we want to help bring to market.”

"Planet Cube: Edge has from the beginning been a game originated in our love for games that feel good to play and hard to put down. We strive to create a game we are truly proud of, and long nights and long days have and are being spent doing this,” adds Emilio Monge Vasquez, CTO at Sunna Entertainment. “We're really happy to be working with a publisher like Firestoke that sees this and shares our thoughts on how fun our game truly is. See you all on PCs and consoles near you in early 2023." 

"After years of hard work we are finally close to releasing Planet Cube: Edge. It's difficult to express how happy we are and we just can't wait to get it out there so players can experience it," says Virgilio Solis Rojas, CEO at Sunna Entertainment.
