Welcome to Cambridge, the next open-source falling-block game engine!

The project is written and maintained exclusively by Milla, joezeng and Oshisaure!

The Discord server has been reopened!

The game also has a website now with more detail than seen on this README:

Playing the game


You do not need LÖVE on Windows, as it comes bundled with the program.

Stable release

To get the stable release, simply download either (32-bit) or (64-bit) in the latest release.

All assets needed are bundled with the executable.

Bleeding edge

If you want the bleeding edge version, download this. Extract the ZIP to a folder of your choosing.

If you're on Windows, you can double-click start.bat to run the game. If that doesn't work, open a Command Prompt where you extracted Cambridge and run:

dist\windows\love.exe .

If that doesn't work, run this instead, still using Command Prompt where you extracted Cambridge:

dist\win32\love.exe .

32-bit systems do not support rich presence integration.

Then, check the mod pack section at the bottom of this page.

macOS, Linux

If you haven't already, install love with your favourite package manager (Homebrew on macOS, your system's default on Linux). Make sure you're using LÖVE 11.3, because it won't work with earlier or later versions!

Downloading a release

You can download the .love file in the latest release, and run it with:


Installing from source

Clone the repository in git:

git clone

Alternatively, download the source code ZIP in the latest release.

Then, navigate to the root directory that you just cloned, and type:

love .

It should run automatically!

Installing modpacks

For instructions on how to install modpacks, go to this mod pack to get a taste of the mod potential.
