Splice

Available for Desktop, iPad, and Android

Evolve Your Mind.

Splice is an experimental and artistic puzzler. Immerse yourself in its microbial world and start splicing! Every level ("strand") consists of a number of cells that you will need to rearrange into a target structure in several moves ("splices"). Exploration and experimentation are key in determining how the curious little cells react to each other.

Playstation 3 and 4, coming soon!

We've been working hard with Sony and Unity to bring you the ultimate experience of Splice. We're currently in QA and are hoping to see a release in Winter 2014.

Behind the Science

The origin of Splice is somewhat a mystery, shrouded in fever dreams from a particularly bad case of strep. We took our love of science, art, and experimentation, and created an experience to capture the feeling of being a scientist—working the night away, tugging at the universe, and trying to figure out how it all works. While Splice may seem daunting, don't worry! You don't need an advanced degree in thermobionuclearology* to play.

Some terminology first: each level has a single strand made up of many cells. These cells are held in a structure known as a binary tree. Binary trees are not a new concept; you've probably seen them many times. If you've ever seen a Final Four bracket or looked up your family history online, you've already used one! What makes Splice's trees unique is that they're mapped in circle, rather than linearly. It may seem confusing at first, but keep at it and the pieces will surely click together.

* Not a real degree. Yet...

“Just moments after you've uttered the words ‘what the heck am I supposed to be doing’, you're relishing in one of the freshest and most mind-blowing puzzle games you've played in a long while.”

“Sexy on a Cellular Level.”

“You discover Splice more than you play it, and it works spectacularly.”

“[Splice is] a fantastic puzzle with a great atmosphere.”

“Splice does what most puzzle games fail to do: it enthralls. ”

“Part eye-candy, part lobe-tickling puzzler, Splice : Tree of Life is a gorgeously presented concept that has a more-ish appeal to its outwardly 'simple' looking stages; definitely worth adding to your puzzle collection.”

“Splice: Tree of Life is mesmerizing and serene as you power through each stage.”
