Portal Creator Announces “Quantum Conundrum”

Portal mastermind Kim Swift an the mega game making company Square Enix have announced there upcoming project “Quantum Conundrum”, which will be a a downloadable game that sounds like the quirkier little brother of everyones favorite game “Portal”. It will be Available on Steam, the PlayStation Network  and Xbox LIVE Arcade in early 2012.

We wanted to create a fun, quirky puzzle game that anyone would want to play, regardless of age or gaming experience, I’ve been working with an amazing and collaborative team on this project and look forward to coming into the office every day to hear new ideas, see what everyone has created, and dive in on my own pieces of the game. We’ve created something that we’re all extremely proud of and hope that people will enjoy playing it as much as we are making it.


  • Engaging Puzzle Gameplay: Using the Inter-Dimensional Shift Device, players will shift to and from various dimensions to manipulate the world around them and clear levels with increasing degrees of difficulty.
  • Experience New Dimensions: Each dimension the player gains access to becomes a valuable asset to manipulate objects in the manor in a specific way. For example, the Fluffy Dimension makes heavy objects ten times lighter, enabling players to move what was once an immovable safe from one place to the next.
  • Immersive, Interactive Environment: In addition to the various dimensions allowing the player to learn new skills and techniques, the look and feel of each dimension is completely distinct. When shifting to the Fluffy Dimension, everything in the room becomes soft and plushy like a cuddly version of its previous state. Every dimension carries its own atmosphere, letting the player feel like they are truly in the world.
  • Unique Art Style and Humor: The Professor’s manor and all the items within it have a unique style, but that’s not all. Players should be on the lookout for humorous touches and jokes scattered throughout the manor home. Who wouldn’t want to know what the infamous Professor Quadwrangle looks like in the Fluffy Dimension?

Well… it sounds awesome! Portal taught us to think with Portals! not Quantum Conundrum looks like it will teach us to think in multi-dimensions. this is going on my “to buy queue”
