Quantum Conundrum Gets a Console Release Date

| 22 Jun 2012 22:00

The latest title from Kim Swift is arriving on PSN and XBLA.

Portal veteran Kim Swift's new game Quantum Conundrum has only just arrived on Steam, but console users have a slightly longer wait ahead of them to see what all the fuss is about. Publisher Square-Enix has announced a July 10th release date for PSN and July 11th for XBox Arcade.

The game features a young boy on a visit to see his inventor uncle, only to discover that the house has been altered by the experiments conducted inside. The player will need to make use of the Interdimensional Shift Device to solve various physics-related puzzles and solve the mystery of what's happened.

From all reports, Quantum Conundrum is very much a spiritual sequel to the Portal, right down to the quirky humor and strange, robotic visual designs. The Escapist's own Susan Arendt had a chance to try it out at E3, and gave it a glowing recommendation. The console versions appear to present an identical experience

While pricing information has yet to be confirmed for the console versions, Steam currently lists the PC version at $15. Steam is also offering a $19.99 "Season Pass" that includes the game, full soundtrack, and two upcoming DLC sets. No word yet on whether the season deal will be available for consoles as well.
