Magrunner is like spooky Portal with Cthulhu, out now

'Technology meets Cthulhu'



Well, I'm sold.

Magrunner: Dark Pulse looks great if this trailer is any proper indication. I'm in love with the starkly clashing, almost manic aesthetic that smacks of colorful imagination straight out of the PS2 era. Our own Caitlin Cooke caught Magrunner at E3 and quite enjoyed it, noting that it isn't just some Portal clone. And, even if it is, there are worse things to clone. Maybe I've managed to avoid most of them, but I have seen relatively few first-person puzzlers emerge in Portal's wake anyway.

Magrunner is now available on both Steam and GOG for a fair $19.99. PS3 and Xbox 360 releases are slated for September.
