Cambridge: The Open-Source Arcade Stacker

Welcome to Cambridge!

As you might have guessed, Cambridge is the next open-source falling-block game engine - written and maintained exclusively by Milla, joezeng and Oshisaure.

The Discord server has been reopened!

Downloads + How to run Cambridge



64-Bit Download (pick this if you’re not sure)

32-Bit Download

Extract the contents of the .zip file into a folder and run cambridge.exe.

Bleeding Edge / Unstable

Keep in mind that this is an unstable version and there is a chance that the game might crash.

Download Cambridge’s source code here. Extract the ZIP to a folder of your choosing.

Assuming you’re on a 64-bit system, you can double-click start_win64.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 you’re on a 32-bit system, you’ll want to double-click start_win32.bat. If that doesn’t work, run this instead:

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 and 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! You will need it for both Stable and Bleeding Edge / Unstable releases.


Download (cambridge-other.zip, a universal version that works on any OS that can run .love files using love)

Extract the contents of the .zip file into a folder, open the Terminal in the extracted folder and then run love cambridge.love.

Bleeding Edge / Unstable

Keep in mind that this is an unstable version and there is a chance that the game might crash.

You have two options:

From there, head into the repository folder (either cambridge or cambridge-master depending on which route you took) and execute love . - that’s all there is to it.

Installing modpacks

Yes indeed, Cambridge supports modpacks! However, it should be noted that since these are not part of the main Cambridge experience, your mileage in terms of how well they work may vary. If this doesn’t deter you, go to the Cambridge Modpack repository over at GitHub to get a taste of the mod potential.
