Introduction

Airtight Games, an independent developer who has been around for almost a decade, released Quantum Conundrum this past summer. With a crew that includes Kim Swift, former lead designer on Portal, we had high hopes. Thankfully, this game didn't disappoint...too much. It's a beautiful game with tons of mind-bending puzzles and a very entertaining voice over by John de Lancie of Star Trek fame. That's not to say it's perfect, though: platforming elements that frustrate more often than not detract significantly from the overall experience, and repetitive scenery gets old sooner than we expected it to. It's still a very enjoyable experience overall, and will be a fantastic treat for gamers that love a good head scratching. If you have to choose between the Portal games and this one, though, the older hit is definitely the superior of the two.
