  • Quantum Conundrum PC Review

    Premium-Inhalt. Looking for a little light-hearted adventure this weekend? Check out Quantum Conundrum, a puzzle game that you can buy on Steam right now for less than twenty bucks. The premise for your puzzle-solving is a high-tech Victorian house haunted by the disembodied voice of Dr. Quadwrangle, a curmudgeonly scientist trapped in a pocket dimension who needs your help. To free him you'll need to strap into the sneakers of his precocious nephew and navigate through the malfunctioning mansion by dodging deadly lasers, leaping impassable chasms and traveling to alternate dimensions while your omniscient uncle offers hints and pokes fun at your progress (or lack thereof).Also, you're 12. Did you play Portal? Then let's get one thing clear up front: Quantum Conundrum is very, very similar to Portal. Expect to spend 6-8 hours progressing through a series of locked rooms, solving puzzles of increasing complexity by manipulating physics with a futuristic gadget strapped to your arm. The striking similarity might reflect the fact that Kim Swift, lead designer of Quantum Conundrum, was also lead designer of the original Portal. Swift left Valve Software before was released to join Airtight Games and work on Quantum Conundrum, so it's feasible that fans of Portal might embrace Quantum Conundrum as that games' spiritual successor.
