Quantum Conundrum Thinks Outside the Box, Then Makes it Fluffy

QuantumConundrum

The first-person environmental puzzle game from Airtight Games, led by Portal co-creator Kim Swift, has its official E3 2012 trailer, a trailer that may go down as having the best tagline of any E3 trailer this year.

In other more important news, publisher Square Enix has announced a launch date for Quantum Conundrum. Professor Fitz Quadwrangle’s manor of puzzle pandemonium will open its doors to PC gamers first, releasing exclusively on Steam beginning June 21st. Versions for PSN and XBLA will follow later on during the summer.

The Steam version is now available for pre-purchase in two forms: a $15 standard edition and a $20 Season Pass bundle with bonuses that include three pieces of exclusive Team Fortress 2 gear, a downloadable copy of the game’s soundtrack and future access to two DLC puzzle packs. Pre-purchasing before June 20 knocks off 10%, bringing the respective prices down to $13.49 and $17.99.

Quantum Conundrum‘s similarities to a certain Valve puzzle game are undeniable, but the game world does have more color and a far more whimsical personality than the sterile test chambers of Portal, and the dimension-shifting gameplay appears to veer off to explore new and exciting puzzles solving possibilities.
