Will they escape the Cube alive or will death be their only way out?
Watch the original version of Cube
The Cube had become infamous. A place where reality and nightmare blended together in a twisted labyrinth of death and fear. No one knew where it came from, who built it, or why. All that was known was that every now and then, a group of people would find themselves trapped inside, forced to navigate its deadly traps and puzzles in order to escape. Some made it out alive, most did not. But for those who survived, the Cube left a mark on them that never faded. A scar on their souls that would haunt them for the rest of their lives.
Chapter 1 – The Awakening:
The first thing he noticed was the pain. A sharp ache that pulsed through his head and made his eyes water. He took a deep breath and tried to sit up, but his body felt heavy and unresponsive. He had no memory of how he got here, wherever here was. The last thing he remembered was going to bed in his own apartment. Everything after that was a blank.
He opened his eyes and took a moment to adjust to the dimly lit room around him. There were no windows, no doors, just plain white walls and a single fluorescent bulb overhead. He turned his head and saw that he wasn’t alone. There were people lying on the floor next to him, all of them unconscious.
He struggled to his feet, wincing at the pain in his head. As he looked around, his brain tried to make sense of his surroundings. The room was a cube, about 20 feet on each side, with no visible seams or openings. There were no markings or labels, no indication of where he was or why he was here.
He took a deep breath and tried to remember. Who was he? What was his name? What was the last thing he remembered? But the memories were elusive, just out of reach. All he knew was that he was trapped in an unknown place with a group of strangers.
As the others began to stir, he realized that each of them was different. There was an older man with a thick beard, a young woman with wild hair, a fit-looking man with tribal tattoos on his arms, and several others. Some seemed disoriented, others angry or afraid. But all of them seemed to be searching for answers.
“Hello?” He called out, his voice echoing around the room. “Does anyone know where we are?”
Silence was his only response. He turned to the others and saw the same confusion and fear in their eyes that he felt within himself. They were all trapped here, with no way out.
Then, as if on cue, the walls began to move. The cube began to rotate, spinning slowly around them. They stumbled and fell, grasping for anything to hold on to. It felt like an earthquake, but there was no shaking, just a slow and steady turn.
When it finally stopped, they were all disoriented and dizzy. But they were also alert, their survival instincts kicking in. They had to find a way out, they had to escape.
And so began the nightmare that was the Cube. A journey through a maze of death and terror, where every step could be their last. A journey that would require all their skills and ingenuity, and test their courage and sanity to the limit.
Chapter 2: The First Death
As the group continued to explore the Cube, they quickly realized that they were not alone. The first death had already occurred, and they knew that they were in serious danger.
The victim had been a young woman with a background in physics. She had been studying the patterns of the Cube’s movements when she had suddenly met her demise. Her body had been mangled by a set of deadly spikes, and the group was shaken to their core.
They all knew that they were in a fight for their lives. The Cube was full of deadly traps and obstacles, and they had no idea how to escape. The remaining members of the group were left to wonder who or what was behind their imprisonment. Was it a government experiment? A terrorist attack? Or something even more sinister?
The engineer of the group, a man by the name of David, began to study the structure of the Cube in order to find a way out. He was a brilliant man with a background in mathematics and engineering, and he quickly became the group’s de facto leader.
David spent hours poring over the Cube’s movements, looking for any patterns or clues that might help them escape. He was meticulous in his research, and the other members of the group were in awe of his intelligence and resourcefulness.
As they continued to explore the Cube, the group began to encounter more and more deadly traps. They encountered a room filled with lasers that could slice through flesh like butter, a hallway filled with poisonous gas, and a set of stairs that seemed to lead nowhere.
The tension among the group was palpable. They were all on edge, knowing that their lives were on the line with every step they took. The slightest misstep could mean certain death.
The second death occurred just a few days after the first. It was a man with a background in psychology who had been trying to study the group dynamics. He had been attempting to build trust and cooperation among the members, but it seemed that his efforts had been in vain.
His body was found twisted and broken at the bottom of a deep pit. The other members of the group were in shock, wondering how someone could have fallen so far.
The group was now down to just six members, and they were all feeling the weight of their situation. They knew that they needed to work together if they were going to make it out alive. But with every passing moment, distrust and suspicion grew among the group.
They began to turn on each other, accusing one another of being responsible for the deaths. The engineer, David, tried to keep the group together, but it was becoming increasingly difficult.
The third death occurred just a few days later. It was a woman with a background in medicine who had been trying to study the effects of the Cube’s deadly traps on the human body. Her body was found in a room filled with acid, her flesh dissolved by the deadly chemicals.
The group was now down to just five members, and they knew that time was running out. They needed to find a way out, and fast. But with each death, it seemed that their chances were growing slimmer and slimmer.
The group continued to explore the Cube, desperate for any clues that might help them escape. They encountered new traps and obstacles at every turn, and they knew that they were running out of time.
As they approached the next room, they could hear a faint humming sound. David hesitated before entering the room, knowing that it could mean certain death. But the others urged him on, knowing that they had no other choice.
David cautiously stepped into the room, and was immediately hit by a blinding light. He could hear the others shouting his name, but he was powerless to move. The light consumed him, and the room fell silent.
The group was left in shock, wondering what had happened to their leader. They knew that they were now truly on their own, and that their chances of survival were growing slimmer by the minute.
As they continued to explore the Cube, they knew that they were running out of time. They needed to find a way out before it was too late. But with every step they took, it seemed that they were only getting further and further from freedom.
Chapter 3: The Engineer
The group had been exploring the Cube for what felt like hours, with no clear plan or direction. They had encountered traps and puzzles that tested their skills and nerves, and had seen one member of their group meet a gruesome end. It was clear that escaping the Cube would not be easy, but they were determined to try.
As they wandered through the endless twisting corridors, one member of the group stood out. His name was David, and he was an engineer. He had been quiet and reserved since they had awoken in the Cube, but as they encountered more and more traps, his analytical mind began to kick into gear.
David spent hours studying every inch of the Cube, taking note of its patterns and structure. He would sketch diagrams in his notebook and mutter to himself as he tried to decipher the logic behind the Cube’s design.
The rest of the group watched in fascination as David worked, unsure of what his plan was or if it would even work. But they trusted him, and they had nothing else to go on.
After several hours of study, David came to a startling conclusion. “I think I’ve figured it out,” he said, his voice quiet but urgent. “This Cube is designed to be navigated like a Rubik’s Cube. Each room is a different color, and the colors have to be aligned in a certain way to progress. But the catch is that the color order is constantly changing.”
The group was skeptical, but they had nothing to lose. David instructed them to start taking note of the color of each room they entered, and to keep track of the order they entered them in. The other members of the group were doubtful, but they trusted David’s expertise.
As they continued exploring the Cube, they encountered more and more rooms of different colors. They noted them all down, and to their surprise, David’s theory seemed to hold up. The colors were changing in a specific pattern, and by following that pattern, they were able to progress further into the Cube.
But it wasn’t easy. The Cube was full of deadly traps and obstacles, and they had to be constantly on guard. David’s expertise in engineering helped them as well. He was able to spot traps and hazards that the rest of the group would have missed, and he was able to come up with solutions to get around them.
As they progressed deeper into the Cube, the group began to feel a glimmer of hope. They were making progress, and they had a plan. David’s expertise had proven invaluable, and they began to rely on him more and more.
But as they rounded a corner, they were met with their toughest challenge yet. A massive room with dozens of doors, each leading to a different color. The group was overwhelmed, and they didn’t know where to start.
David’s analytical mind kicked into gear once again. He began to study the room, taking note of the colors and their positions. After several minutes of study, he came to a conclusion.
“I think I see it,” he said, his voice hushed but confident. “The colors are in a pattern, but it’s a complicated one. We need to start with the blue door on the left, and then go through the red door second from the right. From there, we need to go through the green door fourth from the left, and then through the yellow door third from the right. If we keep following that pattern, we should make it through.”
The group looked at David in awe. It seemed like an impossible task, but they had trusted him before and it had worked. They began to follow his instructions, moving through the doors in the pattern he had laid out.
For a moment, it seemed like they were going to make it through. They were moving steadily through the doors, following David’s instructions to the letter. But then something went wrong.
One member of the group hesitated at the wrong door, and the entire pattern was thrown off. They found themselves trapped in a room with no exit, their progress halted.
David’s face fell. He had been so close, and now they were stuck. But then he began to study the room, looking for a way out.
And in the end, it was David’s expertise that saved them. He spotted a tiny detail on the wall, a hidden switch that opened a secret door. They were able to progress once again, and it was all thanks to David’s analytical mind and engineering skills.
The group continued on, feeling more and more confident as they followed David’s lead. They encountered more deadly traps and puzzles, but David was always there to guide them. And as they neared the heart of the Cube, they knew that they had a chance of escaping.
But they also knew that it wouldn’t be easy. They had to keep their wits about them, and they had to trust in David’s expertise. The Cube was still full of surprises, and anything could happen. But for the first time since they had woken up in that mysterious room, the group felt like they had a real chance of making it out alive.
Chapter 4: The Traitor
Tensions were high as the group continued to navigate through the Cube, each member on edge as they attempted to escape. It had become clear that the Cube was not only filled with deadly traps and obstacles, but also with a traitor amidst their midst.
Suspicions had been mounting for days as members of the group reported strange occurrences and peculiar behavior from their fellow escapees. The group had started out strong, working together to overcome the obstacles and traps they encountered. But now, it seemed like the Cube was getting to them all.
The first sign of a traitor came when the group realized that someone had been sabotaging their efforts. Supplies were missing, traps were being set off prematurely, and some members of the group even reported seeing strange figures lurking in the shadows.
At first, the group tried to work around the traitor, even going so far as to set up a watch to catch them in the act. But when one of their members was found dead in a room that was supposed to be safe, it became clear that they couldn’t keep ignoring the problem.
Tensions came to a head when one member of the group accused another of being the traitor. The accused member vehemently denied it, insisting that they were being framed. But the other members of the group were too suspicious to let it slide.
They decided to hold a vote to decide who the traitor was. Each member wrote down the name of the person they suspected on a piece of paper and placed it in a hat. After counting the votes, they were shocked to discover that the accused member had been voted off the island, so to speak.
The accused member was furious, insisting that they were innocent. The remaining members of the group were divided, with some believing that they had made a mistake and others convinced that they had gotten it right.
The group continued on, but the tension between them was palpable. The accused member refused to speak to anyone, and with each passing day, it became clearer that they were becoming more and more unhinged.
As they navigated through the Cube, the remaining members of the group couldn’t help but wonder if they had made the right decision. The Cube had already taken so much from them, and now it seemed like they were losing the trust they had built with each other.
It wasn’t until they came across a particularly tricky trap that they realized their mistake. The trap was complex, designed to catch the unwary off-guard. But as they studied it, they realized that it had been set off deliberately.
It was then that they knew they had accused the wrong person. The real traitor had been right under their noses the whole time, manipulating them all for their own gain.
The group was devastated, realizing that they had lost a valuable member of their team and that their trust had been broken by the very person they had trusted the most.
As they continued on their journey through the Cube, the group knew that they had to stick together if they wanted to make it out alive. The traitor had driven a wedge between them, but they refused to let the Cube break them apart. They were all in this together, and they would fight until the bitter end to escape the Cube’s deadly grasp.
Chapter 5: The Beast
As the group ventures deeper into the Cube, they come across a room that seems different from the others. The walls are thicker, the ceiling higher, and the floor is made of metal grates that echo their every footstep. It’s also unusually cold, and the sound of water dripping echoes throughout the room.
Suddenly, they hear a low growling noise that sends shivers down their spines. As they move cautiously forward, they see movement out of the corner of their eyes. A massive creature, at least three times the size of a human, emerges from the shadows.
The creature’s skin is black and scaly, with razor-sharp claws and teeth that glint in the dim light. It moves with a terrifying grace and speed, its eyes fixated on the group of strangers.
As the creature charges at them, the group scrambles to find a way out. One member, a soldier with extensive combat experience, quickly takes charge and instructs the others to form a defensive line. They use whatever they can find to create makeshift weapons – pipes, broken pieces of metal, and even a chair.
As the creature lunges at them, they swing their weapons with all their might. One member manages to land a hit, but the creature is hardly fazed. It continues to attack relentlessly, nearly taking down one member of the group.
The soldier realizes that their weapons are no match for the creature’s strength and speed. He orders the group to scatter and try to lure the creature away. They run in different directions as the creature pursues them, snarling and snapping at their heels.
The group races through the maze-like prison, trying to stay one step ahead of the beast. They come across a room with multiple doors, each leading in a different direction. As they debate which path to take, they hear the creature closing in on them.
Without hesitation, they choose a door at random and slam it shut behind them. They huddle in the room, listening to the creature’s roars and snarls as it tries to claw its way through the door. After what seems like an eternity, the noises subside, and they realize that they are safe for now.
The group takes a few moments to catch their breath and assess their injuries. One member has a deep gash on their arm from the creature’s claws, while another’s leg is badly bruised. They realize that they need to be more cautious in their escape attempts, as the Cube is filled with deadly obstacles and dangers.
As they rest, they hear a faint beeping noise coming from one of their pockets. They all pull out small devices that they had discovered earlier – devices that seem to have a connection to the Cube’s systems.
One member, an IT specialist, begins to examine the device and discovers that they have been given access to the Cube’s control systems. They could potentially manipulate the Cube’s traps and hazards to create a safe path for themselves.
But they also realize that they need to be careful – the Cube’s creator could be monitoring their every move. They must use their skills wisely and work together if they hope to make it out alive.
With newfound hope and determination, the group sets out once again, knowing that they will face even more challenges and dangers in their quest for freedom.
Chapter 6: The Puzzle
The group had been making steady progress through the Cube, but their luck seemed to have run out. They had come to a room that was unlike any they had seen before. The room was dark, save for a single beam of light that shone down from the ceiling onto a circular platform in the center of the room. The platform was made up of strange, metallic tiles that seemed to pulse with an otherworldly energy.
As the group looked around the room, they spotted a small engraving in the wall that read, “Solve the puzzle to proceed.” They looked at each other, knowing that they would have to work together to solve this latest challenge.
The engineer immediately began to study the tiles, trying to determine if there was any pattern or logic to their arrangement. The actress and the cop moved to the edge of the platform to look for any clues in the surrounding walls. The young hacker sat down cross-legged in the center of the platform and began to stare intently at the tiles.
As they worked, they began to notice a faint hum emanating from the tiles. The hum steadily grew louder, until it became an ear-splitting screech that made them all cover their ears in pain. Suddenly, the tiles shifted and rearranged themselves, forming new patterns and shapes.
The group scrambled to keep up with the changing configuration of the tiles. The engineer called out instructions to the rest of the group, the actress applied her acting skills to notice any patterns, and the cop used his experience to deduce what the next step should be. They communicated and worked harmoniously, just like a well-oiled machine.
But the puzzle was complex, and the patterns seemed to change every few seconds. The group began to feel the pressure of time ticking away, knowing that they needed to solve the puzzle quickly if they were to continue their escape.
As they worked, they noticed that there were a series of mismatched tiles scattered around the edges of the platform. The young hacker leapt up and began to rearrange them, modifying the puzzle to try out different solutions.
After what seemed like hours, the group finally began to make progress. They managed to coordinate their movements and match the tiles in a specific order. A loud click echoed throughout the room, and a door on the other side of the room opened up.
The group cheered and rushed towards the door, eager to proceed with their escape. However, as they began to exit the room, they were met with a shocking surprise.
Another group of people, who had been trapped in the Cube with them, had been watching their progress on a hidden camera. They emerged from the shadows to confront the group, revealing their true intentions: to sabotage their escape attempts and ensure that they were the only ones to make it out alive.
A tense standoff ensued as the two groups faced off against each other, their survival hanging in the balance. The endgame had begun, and the stakes had never been higher.
Chapter 7: The Secret Room
They had been wandering around aimlessly for hours, the silence in the Cube only broken by their own footsteps echoing through the maze. The group was becoming restless and anxious, their fear of the deadly traps and unknown dangers in the Cube only escalating with each passing moment. But then, just as they were about to give up hope, one of the members stumbled upon a hidden door.
It was well-concealed, blending in seamlessly with the Cube’s walls. But something had caught their eye, a slight discoloration on the otherwise monotonous metal surface. As they pushed on the wall, it slid open with a soft hiss, revealing a small room beyond.
The group hesitated for a moment, unsure if they should enter. This was unlike anything they had seen before in the Cube and they couldn’t shake the feeling that this was yet another trap. But their curiosity got the best of them, and they cautiously stepped inside.
The room was small and cramped, with barely enough space for all of them to stand comfortably. But what they saw was worth the cramped quarters: the walls and ceiling were covered in symbols and diagrams, unlike any language they had ever seen before.
As they studied the markings, a realization dawned upon one of the members. “This is a map,” they said in a hushed tone. “A map of the Cube.”
The rest of the group crowded around, their eyes fixated on the strange markings. It was unlike anything they had ever seen before, but they could sense its importance. They would need it if they wanted to escape the Cube.
But as they were about to make their exit, a loud alarm blared throughout the Cube. The sound was deafening, and the walls began to tremble. The group knew immediately that they had triggered something dangerous.
Frantically, they searched the room for an exit, but the walls had sealed shut, trapping them inside. Panic set in as they realized that they were going to die in the Cube.
But then one member, the engineer, had an idea. “We can use the map,” he said, “to figure out how to get out of here.”
They all looked at him incredulously, but then they saw the determination in his eyes. They had to trust him.
He began to decipher the cryptic symbols, piecing together the different parts of the map. The rest of the group watched in awe as he worked quickly and efficiently, his hands moving deftly across the surface of the walls.
Finally, he mapped out a path, and they all rushed to follow it. The walls trembled even more violently as they moved, but they pressed on, determined to make it out alive.
They stumbled through room after room, each one more dangerous than the last. But they knew they were making progress. They were getting closer to the way out.
And then, finally, they saw a glimmer of daylight. They burst through the final door, gasping for fresh air. They had made it out.
As they left the Cube behind, they could feel a sense of triumph filling their hearts. They had overcome the ultimate challenge, and they had done it together. They looked at each other, a newfound respect and gratitude in their eyes. They were no longer strangers trapped in the Cube, but a team who had survived the impossible.
But even as they celebrated their victory, they were aware of the danger that still lurked in the shadows. The Cube may have been behind them, but its creator was still out there, waiting for his next victims. And they knew that they had to be ready.
Chapter 8: The Betrayal
The group had been through so much together. They had overcome deadly traps, intricate puzzles, and even a terrifying beast, all in the hopes of escaping the Cube. But their journey had taken a dark turn. One of their own had betrayed them.
It had started with small things. Suspicious glances and whispered conversations behind closed doors. But as they reached the deeper levels of the Cube, tensions had risen to the breaking point.
It was Claire who finally came forward with the accusation. “I think it’s him,” she said, pointing a shaky finger at Jack. “He’s been acting strange, disappearing for hours at a time. And I found this in his pocket.” She pulled out a small device, one that Jack had claimed was a tool for disarming traps, but which Claire now suspected was something more sinister.
Jack protested, of course. But the damage was done. Doubt had been sowed, and the group was torn apart.
They tried to continue their escape attempts, working together as best they could. But the trust was gone. Every little mistake or misstep was met with suspicion, and the progress they had made ground to a halt.
It all came to a head in the middle of the night. Claire woke to find herself tied to a chair, a gag in her mouth. Jack was standing over her, a wild look in his eyes.
“Listen to me,” he hissed. “I didn’t want to do this. But they offered me a way out. A way to escape this place for good. All I had to do was sabotage our efforts. Make sure we never found the way out.”
Claire struggled against her restraints, but it was no use. Jack had the upper hand.
“And now, it’s time to make sure you don’t get in my way.” He raised a hand, and a small device beeped to life. The room filled with a deadly hum, and Claire could feel the hairs on her arms standing up.
But before Jack could carry out his plan, a commotion sounded outside. Shouts and the sound of running footsteps.
Jack hesitated for just a moment, and in that moment, Claire managed to free herself. She lunged at Jack, knocking him to the ground.
The rest of the group burst into the room, led by Marcus, who had been suspicious of Jack from the start. Together, they overpowered Jack and disarmed the device.
It was a tense moment, but eventually they managed to restore some semblance of order. Jack was tied up, left in a separate room while the rest of the group discussed what to do next.
In the end, they decided to press on. Despite the betrayal, they knew that their only chance at escape was to keep going. They had come too far to give up now.
But the trust had been broken, and the group would never be the same again. They proceeded with caution, knowing that at any moment, another betrayal could be waiting for them around the corner.
Chapter 9: The Final Stretch
The remaining members of the group were exhausted, their supplies running dangerously low. They had been trapped in the Cube for what felt like an eternity, and they were all feeling the strain. Despite their fatigue, they knew that they had to push on. They were so close to escaping, and they couldn’t give up now.
As they entered the next room, their hearts sank. It was the largest room they had encountered so far, and it was filled with a complex network of interlocking tunnels. They knew that they would have to navigate the tunnels successfully if they were to make it out alive.
The engineer led the way, using his knowledge of structure and design to decipher the tunnels. They carefully made their way through the maze, relying on their instincts to guide them when the engineer’s knowledge failed. The tunnels were booby-trapped, with spikes and pitfalls hidden in unexpected places. They had to be extra careful not to trigger any of them.
As they moved on, they encountered a new danger: the walls of the tunnels began to shift and move, threatening to crush anyone caught in their path. They had to move quickly if they were to stay ahead of the shifting walls.
Their progress was slow and difficult, and tempers began to flare as they grew increasingly frustrated. The traitor’s presence, in particular, was a constant source of tension. However, they knew that they had to keep their cool if they were to have any chance of making it out alive.
Just when they thought things couldn’t get any worse, they stumbled upon a nest of deadly creatures. The creatures were fast and vicious, with sharp claws and teeth. They had to fight for their lives, using whatever weapons they had at their disposal. In the end, they emerged from the battle bruised and battered, but alive.
As they pushed on, they encountered a series of rooms that tested their physical and mental limits. One room was filled with intense heat, while another was so cold that their breath froze in the air. They had to use their knowledge and skills to overcome each obstacle in turn.
Finally, they arrived at the last room. It was the most difficult of them all, with a complex system of levers and switches that had to be activated in a specific order if they were to escape.
The group worked together flawlessly, each member using their unique skills to solve the puzzle. They were so close, they could practically taste freedom. But just as they thought they had solved the puzzle, the traitor revealed their true colors once again.
The traitor had been working against them all along, sabotaging their efforts and working for their captor. The group was devastated and disheartened, but they knew that they had to keep pushing. There was no way they were going to let the traitor win.
In a final, desperate push, they managed to solve the puzzle and escape the Cube. They emerged from the maze, blinking in the bright sunlight, gasping for air. They had made it out alive, but they had lost one of their own in the process.
As they made their way back to civilization, they were haunted by the memories of their experience. They knew that they would never forget the horrors they had endured in the Cube. But they also knew that they had forged a bond that would last a lifetime. They had survived the impossible together, and that was something that no one could ever take away from them.
Chapter 10: The Escape
The group stood before the final exit, their hearts pounding with excitement and fear. They had come so far, endured so much, and lost so many along the way. But now, they were so close to freedom, they could taste it.
As they approached the exit, they noticed a figure in front of them. It was the Cube’s creator – the man who had been behind their imprisonment all along. He stood there, arms crossed, a smug smile on his face.
“You all have done very well,” he said, his voice ringing out in the empty space. “But I’m afraid your journey stops here.”
The group looked at each other, fear and anger mingling in their eyes. They had come too far to be stopped now.
“Who are you?” one of them demanded.
The man chuckled. “I am the one who created this Cube. The one who trapped you all here. And I’m afraid I can’t let you leave.”
The group was taken aback. They had never stopped to consider who had created the Cube or why. They had been too focused on their own survival.
“Why?” another member of the group asked. “Why did you do this?”
The man shrugged. “For fun. For the thrill of watching people struggle to survive. I’ve always been fascinated by the human psyche when faced with their own mortality. And you all have been a very entertaining experiment.”
The group was disgusted. How could someone be so heartless, so cruel?
“We’re not your toys,” one of them spat. “We’re human beings. And we deserve to be free.”
The man chuckled again. “Oh, but you see, that’s where you’re wrong. You don’t deserve anything. You have to earn it.”
The group looked at each other, unsure of what to do next. They had no weapons, no plan, no idea how to get past the man in front of them.
Suddenly, one of the members had an idea.
“We don’t have to fight him,” she whispered to the others. “We just have to outsmart him.”
The group nodded, and they began to put their plan into action. They split up, each taking a different path towards the exit. The man watched them, amused.
“Where do you think you’re going?” he called out.
But the group didn’t answer. They were too focused on their goal.
They worked together, using their unique skills and knowledge to bypass the traps and obstacles in their way. They were tactical, precise, and determined. They knew that every second counted, that the man could turn on them at any moment.
Finally, they reached the exit. They looked back at the man, who was now scowling.
“You can’t leave,” he growled. “You’re mine!”
But the group didn’t listen. They pushed open the door and stepped out into the sunlight.
They were free.
As they walked away from the Cube, they couldn’t help but feel a sense of relief and pride. They had survived the greatest challenge of their lives, and they had done it together.
But as they walked, they couldn’t help but think of the others – the ones who hadn’t made it. The ones who had died in the Cube, alone and afraid. They were a constant reminder of the man’s cruelty, of the evil that lurked in the hearts of some human beings.
But for now, the group was just happy to be alive. And as they walked into the horizon, they knew that they would never forget the lessons they had learned in the Cube.
Some scenes from the movie Cube written by A.I.
INT. DARK ROOM – DAY
We open to find six strangers waking up in a dark room, disoriented and confused. The room has no discernible exits, and the only light source is a faint glow emanating from the ceiling.
We see each character’s unique traits as they do their best to try and make sense of their situation. There’s NIKKI, a tech-savvy hacker who quickly tries to assess the room’s technology. There’s JASON, a former soldier who takes charge and tries to rally the others. We see the frightened but determined expressions on their faces.
As they explore the room, they begin to realize the walls and floor are moving. Suddenly, a trap door opens beneath them, and they fall through.
INT. NEW ROOM – DAY
The group lands in a new room, much larger than the first, made up of a series of interconnected cubes. Each cube has unique symbols on each wall, and there seems to be no rhyme or reason to how they match up.
JASON: “Ok, listen up everyone. We need to work together to figure a way out of here.”
NIKKI: “I think these symbols are some kind of code. If we can decipher them, we may be able to find a way out.”
As they work to make sense of the symbols, one of the group suddenly triggers a trap, and a sharp blade emerges from the wall, narrowly missing them.
JASON: “Ok, let’s be careful. We need to watch for traps like that.”
The group begins to work in earnest, each using their unique skills to try and figure a way out of the Cube.
EXT. THE CUBE – DAY
The group of strangers roam around the Cube, inspecting their surroundings. Suddenly, one member steps onto a pressure plate and activates a deadly trap. The walls close in and a series of razor-sharp wires slice through the air, killing the member instantly.
The group is horrified, but they know that they must continue on if they want to escape.
INT. THE CUBE – LATER
The remaining members of the group gather in a chamber, discussing the implications of the trap they just witnessed.
JESSICA, a resourceful engineer, speaks up.
We need to start analyzing the Cube’s structure. There must be patterns we can decipher to help us avoid these traps.
The group agrees and begins to work together to map out the Cube’s structure.
As they work, tensions rise and suspicions grow. They begin to question each other’s motives and alliances form.
Suddenly, a loud noise echoes through the Cube.
What was that?
The group rushes to investigate, but as they turn the corner, they come face-to-face with a terrifying beast.
The Beast snarls and prepares to attack. The group scrambles to come up with a plan, but it’s clear that they are outmatched.
INT. CUBE ROOM – DAY
The group is huddled around Quentin, a middle-aged engineer with a serious expression on his face. He holds a small notebook covered in scribbled diagrams and equations.
If my calculations are correct, this room should lead to the next.
And how do you know that for sure?
The Cube was designed with a specific pattern in mind. I’ve been studying it since we got here.
But we’ve been wandering around for hours. How do we know which way to go?
We need to pay attention to the symbols on the walls. See here? (he points to a symbol etched into the wall) This indicates the direction we need to go.
Okay, so we follow the symbols. What could go wrong?
Suddenly, an alarm blares through the room and the floor drops out from under them.
You were saying?
I didn’t calculate for that.
They freefall through a dark shaft, their screams echoing off the walls. Just as they think they’re about to hit the bottom, a trapdoor slides open and they tumble into another room.
Is everyone okay?
That was unexpected.
So much for your patterns.
We’ll have to start again.
The group looks around, taking in their new surroundings. The walls are covered in strange symbols and the air is thick with tension.
How much more of this can we take?
As much as it takes to get out of here.

Setting: The Cube
INT. CUBE – DAY
Jack and Sarah are studying a map of the Cube, trying to find a way out. Mark watches them suspiciously from across the room.
JACK: (pointing to the map) We need to go through this room to get to the next level.
SARAH: (nodding) But there’s a trap in that room.
MARK: (interjecting) Maybe we should go a different way.
JACK: (skeptical) Why do you say that?
MARK: (defensive) I just have a bad feeling about that room. We should go around it.
RACHEL: (rolling her eyes) Of course he does. He’s probably the one who set the trap.
TOM: (skeptical) What makes you say that?
RACHEL: (nodding at Mark) He’s been acting shadier than usual lately.
MIKE: (curious) Shadier than usual?
ERICA: (chiming in) Yeah, he’s been sneaking off on his own and not telling us where he’s been.
JACK: (determined) We can’t let him ruin our chances of getting out of here. We need to stick together and trust each other.
The group looks around at each other, unsure of what to do next.
Scene 5: The Beast
INT. CUBE – DAY
The group has been wandering through the Cube for hours, but they finally come across a room that’s different from the others. It’s dimly lit, and the walls are covered in a strange, slimy substance. As they cautiously approach the center of the room, they suddenly hear a low growling sound.
JEN, a quick-witted computer programmer, pulls out a flashlight and shines it towards the noise. A massive creature looms in the shadows, its glowing eyes fixated on the group. It appears to be a giant lizard, with razor-sharp teeth and long, spiked tail.
(to the group)
We need to stick together and not make any sudden movements.
Suddenly, the Beast charges towards them. The group quickly scatters in different directions, trying to evade the creature’s attacks. JASON, a fearless firefighter, grabs a nearby pole and tries to hit the Beast, but it simply dodges his strike and lunges towards him.
As the Beast corners JASON, suddenly, KATIE, a neurosurgeon, rushes towards the Beast with a syringe in her hand.
(holding the syringe up)
I think I found its weakness!
She attacks the Beast with the syringe, injecting it with a strange substance. Within moments, the Beast starts to tremble and convulse, unable to move. The group cheers in relief as the Beast dies.
(walking towards KATIE, impressed)
How did you know its weakness?
I’m a neurosurgeon. I know how to take down a brain, no matter the size.
The group continues onward, grateful to still be alive, but battle-scarred from their encounter with the Beast. They must continue to find their way out of the Cube before any more of them fall victim to its deadly traps.
