Based in The University of Huddersfield
Flux8 is a puzzle platformer, based around the polarity of magnets and how they react to opposite and similar forces. You play as two magnets named Newt and Tess. Navigate the factory floor, attracting and repelling at will to avoid your untimely demise. Each level tests your understanding of magnetic forces to navigate and dodge the deadly working environment as you head for freedom. Collect floppy discs throughout your escape to customize Newt and Tess with a range of fashionable accessories.
Flux8 began it’s development in October 2016, when our team worked together to create a prototype with fun, exciting, Single-player gameplay. The project underwent a rework at the beginning of 2017 to improve gameplay and the overall look of the game. The idea of the game came about when a member of the team attempted to stick a magnetic whiteboard rubber to a non-magnetic whiteboard. The concept spiralled from there. At the beginning of 2017, the core ideas were refined, and the art style reworked to make Flux8 the game it is today.
