Know what's better than the uber-vague "TBA 2012" launch window? A "Summer 2012" launch window.
No, we still don't have an exact date but at least it's narrowed down. As revealed at the Square Enix Members site , Airtight Games' Quantum Conundrum is now slated to arrive this summer on the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, and PC digital services.
Featuring a concept and design by former Valve staffer Kim Swift, this new puzzle-based adventure involves Professor Quadwrangle's crazy mansion where the rules of physics take a backseat to creativity and imagination. Only the Inter-Dimensional Shift Device can help you fiddle with those rules and allow you to advance; maybe turning everything "fluffy" will be the answer. It's a great idea and certainly reminds us of the Portal games, which we absolutely love.
We just hope Quantum Conundrum gets enough attention. These days, lesser-budget titles – especially puzzle-based ones – don't exactly burn up the sales charts. But hey, Portal fans should be intrigued, and unless we miss our guess, that's a big group.
