Crayon Physics Deluxe out on Wednesday

Crayon Physics Deluxe out on Wednesday

Crayon Physics Deluxe has been ported to the DS as a homebrew game, but is finally seeing a full PC release.

Crayon Physics Deluxe, which was one of the most impressive entrants and overall winner of the Independent Games Festival 2008, will be launching later this week after a long period of beta development.

The game, which wowed gamers and judges with a simple aesthetic and puzzling gameplay, was created by indie developer Petri Purho.

The gameplay itself is deceptively simple, with players having to move a ball across the screen to a star by filling in gaps with player-created physics objects drawn with the mouse. You can make solid shapes of any design, as well as fixed points and strings for your ball to travel across. Put all these together and you can make everything from rudimentary bridges and rope-swings to trebuchets.

The full game boasts more than eighty different levels, as well as a level editor that lets you create maps and save them as .PNG files that you can share with other users.

The game has previously been available as a small beta, which inspired flash games and DS homebrew apps, but this is the first time the full game will be available. Pre-ordering the game will grant you a few more days of access to the beta in the mean time.

If you're interested in picking up a copy of Crayon Physics Deluxe then you can grab yourself a copy for $19.95 USD (around £13) and let us know what you think of it in the forums.

It's more of a sandbox game than a true puzzler, but it's good enough.

i've been playing the iphone version of this for the last few days, fantastic game.

wait, more than 80 levels?? there are only 50 levels on the iphone, but there's still a level editor.

for mini games like this, i prefer to be organised on Steam, would i be able to get it on Steam?

I'll give this a go if a demo comes out, it doesn't seem to appeal to me as much as World Of Goo did.

A demo has been around for a loooooong time, and it's quite fun actually. I don't remember how I got it in the first place, though...

The full version was released yesterday to those who pre-ordered the game. Finally...(the demo gets a little old after playing it for so long). The game is awesome though I really recommend buying it.
