Just as portals changed the way we look at a physical space, Quantum Conundrum aims to change the way we look at the very basics of physics. Portal and Quantum Conundrum have a lot in common. You go from room to room placing boxes on big floor switches to open doors while a disembodied narrator talks to you throughout. Kim Swift is the reason for this as she worked on the original portal and is now the creative director at Airtight Games. While Quantum Conundrum may not be as polished as the portal games, it offers up a large amount of unique puzzles and overall fun."
