The big Square Enix game reveal happened yesterday with the unveiling of Quantum Conundrum. The title is a collaboration between Square Enix, Airtight Games, and Portal's Kim Swift. Tara Long and Nick Chester got to see the demo and spend some time talking about gameplay, the puzzles and a bit of the back story. While no actual date has been given for release, it will be happening some time next year.
Instead of portals, players get to toy with dimensions, the environments look more playful, and the gameplay might be harder than Swift's last physics-based game. I may not have been super pumped about Final Fantasy XIII-2 (can you blame me?) but I am incredibly thrilled about this game. More physics puzzles with a different mechanic? Please and thank you. Also Dale plays piano.
