First 20 Minutes: Quantum Conundrum

by on June 25, 2012

If you’re anything like us here at GodisaGeek.com, you have been waiting a while to see what the next game will be to come forth from one of the minds that brought us the excellent, genre-defining, Portal series of games. Can lighting strike twice? Will Miss. Swift’s new game, Quantum Conundrum, be the next Portal? Only time can truly answer that question but there is one thing we can do while we wait to be told; watch the first twenty or so minutes of Quantum Conundrum; the recently released first person action puzzler.

The plot of the game is simple, you play as a twelve year-old boy, the nephew of the slightly mad inventor Professor Fitz Quadwrangle (voiced by John De Lancie, who Stargate SG1 fans will know as NID Colonel Frank Simmons). Things soon take a turn for the worse as there’s a power-cut in the mansion and you’re the only one who can help your uncle out; much to his dismay.

Check out the video below, take a look at some of the puzzles that you’ll be asked to play through during the first twenty minutes of the game, and I’m sure you’ll be able to see the possibilities of Quantum Conundrum; not to mention how badly you’ll inevitably want to play it too:

Quantum Conundrum, published by Square Enix and developed by Airtight Games (yes, the people that developed Dark Void), is out now on Steam for a mere £9.99, but you should already know that because you should have been on the Steam page buying it after the first five minutes of the video.
