I first came across Lost Marbles at the Boston Festival of Indie Games this past September. As I walked past Binary Takeover’s booth, I couldn't help but stare at the bright ambiance emitting from the screen and the funny little marbles rolling around. I knew instantly that I wanted to preview the game -- what's not to like about sprightly graphics and marble conundrums?
As I investigated their booth, I found that Binary Takeover is an indie game studio made up of two part-time programmers who teamed up together to make Turba, a musically-driven puzzle game. Lost Marbles is their latest creation. It blends elements from games like Marble Madness and Lost Vikings, combining hazardous elements and the unique properties of various marbles to create an interesting take on puzzle games.
