Praise for Particulars:
The game feels fantastic, itís a joy to whiz around the simple environment. This game illustrates the idea that a game doesnít have to be visually packed to look good; indeed, its artistic style is reminiscent of flOw. - David Ferris on Kotaku Australia
Itís a story-led, arcade puzzle game that seems to have a lot of intelligent thought about it. - Cara Ellison on Rock, Paper, Shotgun
I haven't cried playing a video game before; it's not like it's a habit. But there's something about the loneliness of being a down quark all alone in a subatomic space that really underlined the joy in finding an anti-down quark to combine with. - Grant Howitt for the Guardian
Particulars is a game with a unique combination of arcade-action and puzzle gameplay, set in the mysterious world of subatomic particles.
Taking control of a single quark, you must negotiate the fundamental forces of the universe. Other particles will push and pull at you - you'll always be on the brink of losing control and being dragged towards annihilation!
Woven through the game is the story of Alison, a young physicist with a troubled past. Her journey through the subatomic world is drenched in memories (both good and bad), and will ultimately lead her to some surprising revelations.

Science at it's bestFreako | Jan. 5, 2014 | See all Freako's reviews »
This game concept is brilliant i would say. The concept of you a player controlling a particle that is looking for other particulars to combine together but there are some sub-particles in the world that wants to destroy you.
They are represented by charges. You have a specific charge and you have to find others that will attract to you and finally merge. Game is great so is the gameplay. I feel there is no storyline but there is honestly no need for it. Since it's a arcade puzzle game i feel it has a unique art style and gameplay that no game has ever dared to try before.
Be warned that the game maybe short and not of many people liking but i recommend you to buy the game when it is on sale. Definitely worth the try.
