You've dinitely got a good thing going here! A background would help spice things up a bit too.

It needs background and more detail, other than that it is rather cool, Can't wait to see the final product on steam.

Thanks. I need to take a break from it for a while and come back to it when I have some fresh ideas.

This game looks good, but it needs more features, good luck!

Even if it doesn't get greenlit; you have a greater chance of selling your game if you dress it up nicely; you can do it on other channels as well. Desura could be a good place to start. I'm sure there are websites that review and recommend casual games like this; you could also send your finished game to reviewers and hope for the best.

Thanks for the input, akcaye. All of your suggestions are good (the font and soundtrack issues have been raised by others, too) and I am working on improvements. I have previously tried the use of different "rooms". Unfortunately it is currently the camera that moves, not the blocks, and I found in tests that the use of rooms results in nausea as the background appears to rotate relative to the camera. (Even more nausea than is caused by Papyrus.)
I can fix that, but in any case there seems to be little chance of this game being greenlit, so at this stage I'm not sure when or where it will be available.

Thanks again for your input though, and your words of encouragement.

I like the concept. Never mind the people who forget that PC gamers are entitled to casual gaming too... and that not everyone has tablets or smartphones with decent hardware, or storage capacity, or even the battery life to play games on them.

However, the game needs better graphics, a cool and fitting soundtrack, and maybe most importantly, a font other than Papyrus... and NO, no Comic Sans, Arial, Times, or other horrible/free/stock font either. If your game will be based on blocks letters, the letters (and the blocks) should be quite presentable. Also, the background is important since there's not much else other than the blocks and the background. I'd suggest multiple, 3D, detailed and well-rendered "rooms" that would give the feeling of playing this game in a physical world. Some of them might be realistic while others more fantastic, like a level where you start with on a tiny floating island, and your blocks go higher and higher into the clouds the more you play...

This is more suitable for mobile and tablets, not for desktop games. I'm sorry...

good idea, but probably suited more for facebook not steam, voted no.
