today officially announced that Quantum Conundrum
, a first-person platform puzzle game from Airtight Games
and the co-creator of Portal
, Kim Swift., will be available for download in early 2012 via Steam (PC), PlayStation Network (PS3) and Xbox LIVE Arcade (Xbox 360). In Quantum Conundrum, players take on the role of a young kid dropped off on his uncle's doorstep for the weekend; his uncle just so happens to be the brilliant, eccentric inventor, Professor Fitz Quadwrangle. Upon entering the Professor's vast manor home retrofitted with crazy technology to test his latest hypotheses, players quickly realize their uncle has gone missing. Fortunately, players soon gain access to Professor Quadwrangle's latest invention, the Inter-Dimensional Shift Device, which, at the press of a button, will shift the world around them to an entirely new dimension. In order to find him, players must use the newly found IDS Device to dynamically change the world to and from a variety of different dimensions to progress through the complicated Quadwrangle Manor. Five screenshots
and a trailer have been added in our download section.
