We worked hard with Sony and Unity to bring you the ultimate experience of Splice. It’s been a childhood dream for such a long time to release a game on a console, and Splice is our very first!
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.
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...
