Quantum Conundrum

released on Jun 21, 2012

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. While on the journey, becoming adept at utilizing the various dimensions will help them trek from one bizarre and challenging room to the next. It might sound easy enough, but it is a tall order for a kid in a giant puzzle of a manor!

Portal clone with a lot more quirk(TM)

It's okay. It really kind of wants to be like Portal, but it's heavier on first person platforming while not really being long or hard enough to utilize those parts in interesting ways. Nothing else in the game excels or shines; the story and graphics are mostly there to provide cozy atmosphere, so it lives and dies by these puzzles.
If the game had tighter, more directed puzzle design, it could've been an interesting experience, but I'm sure that would've also alienated casual players. They chose to make a game that appealed to a casual audience, and that's not something I can blame the developers for. It does go on discount for a dollar though, and at that price, it's definitely worth checking out if you need to fill a void for a few hours. There's only one point in the game that you're likely to get stuck on.

Quirky puzzle game from some of the creators of Portal. While it doesn't have the Valve seal of quality, it is a fun well made game.
