I killed myself in the game (I think)
Sorry for such a long post but please read it anyways. My failiure might just give you a laugh.
I just bought this game and after about an hour (I know I'm a little slow) I finally get to play around with the yellow blocks. I then get to one of the areas wich destroys your blocks when you walk into them so I naturally start placing blocks on the floor and walls with the intention of bringing them with me to the other side. Then something struck me. What if I covered all of the walls, floor and cealing in the korridor around me?? That would be awesome to see all those blocks move!! So I start building on my idea but when I get to the last block it starts to form a wall in front of and behind me, sealing me inside!!! Then the game craches. I can only assume that it in ♥♥♥♥t filled upp all the squares with me still inside, crushing me to death and that the game wasn't programmed for that to happen. Please tell me if you have experienced anything similar or if it's just me doing it wrong.

Yeah someone mentioned it too. I tried doing it just without closing the cube on myself, and the game lags a bit. I am not going to try closing it on myself because my claustrophobia goes absolutely wild. Kind of reminds The Wall.

The more blocks that exist because you moved them, the more memory it takes. The more blocks you cause it to fill at a time the more memory it needs. There is an upper limit that just ends up slowing it down enough to crash.

Add on the whole blocks not leaving a place to push you to and it ends up trying to figure out where you should be going. It finally ends up just a bit much so it crashes.

You can definitely crash the game by closing yourself in with blocks and crushing yourself. The red gun makes this pretty easy to do. Nothing to do with a memory limit, more like it doesn't know what to do when a block is placed where the camera is and there's nowhere for you to go. It should just not create that block, then you would be stuck but could suck up blocks to get out.

You have claustrophobia in a virtual world? O.o You must have a more severe version than me.

Inside or outside the cube doesn't matter, it's simply that the tessellation resulting from the flood fill is buggy.

I got crushed in a door. It put me back in the antechamber with no gun. I had to restart
