You guys have heard of Kim Swift, right? Creator of Portal, former designer at Valve, and all-around badass? I interviewed her last week after getting some hands-on time with Airtight Games's upcoming downloadable title Quantum Conundrum, and tried hard to withhold my giddy fangirlism until after the interview. (Whether or not that was successful remains to be seen.)

I also got a chance to speak with two of Quantum Conundrum's designers, Kasey Quevedo and Chris Madden, about the art style and direction they chose to take with the game. Spoiler alert: It's adorable!
