Square Enix has announced Quantum Conundrum, a first–person platform puzzle game from Airtight Games and the co–creator of PORTAL, Kim Swift.
Quantum Conundrum will be available for download in early 2012 on Steam for Windows PC, PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade.
In Quantum Conundrum, players take on the role of a kid dropped off at his uncle's place for the weekend, only to find out that's he has gone missing. Luckily, this uncle just so happens to be inventor Professor Fitz Quadwrangle who has retrofitted his home with crazy technology to test his latest hypotheses.
Players 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 IDS Device to creatively solve puzzles. The concept is best understood by watching the video below.
