Great news for puzzle fans as Quantum Conundrum, the upcoming puzzle game from Portal’s creator Kim Swift, is now available on Steam for pre-purchase. The game comes with a 10% discount and those who pre-order it will receive three exclusive items (Atomic Accolade, Quadwrangler, and Professor’s Pineapple) in Team Fortress 2. In addition, you can grab the Season Pass and receive the full game, soundtrack, and two upcoming DLC’s for it. In other words, Airtight Games and Square Enix have already planned the game’s DLCs that will cost you additional money. Awesome, right?
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.
Quantum Conundrum is currently slated for a Summer release!
