The concept of Cycleblob is based on the light cycles game from the 1982 movie "TRON". In the original movie, light cycles competed against each other on a flat grid and could only make 90 degree turns while on the grid. Cycleblob takes this idea to the next level and makes the grid a three-dimentional object, floating in space.
Cycleblob was created by Shy Shalom, an Israely developer, as a personal project for learning WebGL and game engine design and implementation.
