Portal co-creator Kim Swift's new game is Quantum Conundrum

The premise of the game is that your uncle has invented some gadgets that can send object and environments into alternate dimensions

As revealed this morning by Gamespot, that upcoming game from Dark Void's Airtight Games, now joined by Portal's Kim Swift, is called "Quantum Conundrum".

As the announcement trailer explains, the premise of the game is that your uncle has invented some gadgets that can send object and environments into alternate dimensions. In a game mechanic that's essentially "everything is a portal," players have to solve puzzles by "phasing" objects in and out of different dimensions -- along with playing by a level's rules. As Gamespot notes, in the Fluffy Level "players will make objects in the room light, allowing them to push around once-immovable objects to clear a path forward. There will also be a dimension that slows down time, one that reverses gravity, and a fourth that has not yet been detailed."

Quantum Conundrum is heading for downloadable release on the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC (via Steam) next year, but the game will be also be shown at PAX.

For now, you can watch the announcement trailer right here.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
