Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
When you’re dropped off to visit your uncle, you notice something’s wrong. He’s not there to greet you. There was an explosion just as you arrived. And the house seems to be even weirder than you remember. It’s up to you to find—and ultimately rescue—your uncle. Use his newest invention, the Interdimensional Shift Device (or IDS), to switch between five different dimensions and solve puzzles. Switch dimensions in real time, work your way through the crazy complex mansion, and rescue your uncle!
Engaging Puzzle Gameplay: Using the Inter–Dimensional Shift Device, players will shift to and from various dimensions to manipulate the world around them.
Experience New Dimensions: Each dimension the player gains access to becomes a valuable asset to manipulate objects around the manor. Move between the Normal, Fluffy, Heavy, Slow-Motion and Reverse Gravity Dimensions on the fly.
Immersive, Interactive Environment: The look and feel of each dimension is completely distinct. When shifting to the Fluffy Dimension, everything in the room becomes a soft and cuddly version of its previous state.
Unique Art Style and Humor: The Professor’s manor and all the items within it have a unique style, but players should also be on the lookout for humorous touches scattered throughout.

Funny when I decided to review this game I was thinking.....Well the very first thought that comes to mind is 'Portal'....Then I get on here and read other reviews and see "portal.... portal....portal.....portal" Well that's because they are right....I mean...you go through these areas using abilities to mess with physics...making objects more dense, or light as a cloud..It sounds cool, but it feels empty to be honest....The puzzle, despite adding a new element each area feel kinda redundant and basic, not much of a thought process.....The game, much like Portal involves a person talking to you the entire time you make your way through the puzzles....Not really a witty, cold GlaDOS. To be short about it, this is what you would get if Portal tried to play it safe.....I couldn't even finish the game...
No Charm. Only Puzzles.hombre_lobo | Jan. 10, 2015 | See all hombre_lobo's reviews »
I loved Portland/Portal 2 and was thus excited to get my hands on another puzzle game, only to be sorely disappointed.
The puzzles are alright, but some of them are rather glitchy and very difficult to get through. I just persisted with it despite hating the game every step of the way. Even the controls are clunky.
The premise and the ending are far from satisfying. Whereas in the Portal series, I kept getting insulted in funny ways, I get insulted in this one too, but hardly found it funny. It's as if the game treats me as a piece of crap.
I would suggest not to waste your money on this but instead, opt for playing Portal with your mates instead, or look out for any other puzzle game, just not this one.
like Portal, with a twist. needs work.damienjameswebb | Feb. 3, 2014 | See all damienjameswebb's reviews »
first off, it took forever to try and get this game to run smoothly. wasn't sure if that was just me or if the game just isn't optimized fully. but, when i finally got it going, wow was i impressed. it did feel a lot like portal. one room then the next then the next, but it wasn't at the same time. instead of portals, you use dimensions which radically change how things act in the world. it makes for some interesting a difficult puzzles.
the games engine, while innovative, is very slow (at least for me) if i had a more powerful pc, i'm sure it would have been better,but i can get portal 2 to run like butter, and this was more like a thick chunky poo.... i did get all the way through it, however, and the difficulty of the game with all its weird mind bending puzzles was well worth the effort.
this game would probably be better experienced on a console or better PC, but should defiantly be experienced.
Adorable in its own waybibboorton | Sept. 21, 2013 | See all bibboorton's reviews »
The best way to enjoy this game is to probably not compare it to Portal. Because it is not Portal.
And yet, comparisons to Portal just won't end.
Take Portal and remove all portals. Then replace those portals with dimension shifts. So, think not with portals. Think with dimensions.
Yeah.. Maybe this is Portal. Only without the Portals.
In any case, it is an adorable game that is worth a play-through if you like relaxing puzzle games. There's quite a lot of gameplay here too despite the simple mechanics.
Cured an itch...Leewom | Aug. 28, 2013 | See all Leewom's reviews »
After finally getting to play Portal 2, I needed some more physic based FPS puzzlery and Quantum Conundrum looked like it would tick the box.
Over a couple of evenings I became totally engrossed in the Uncles house of puzzles and enjoyed the quite humourus story. It may seem childish by nature (especially graphically), but do not let this put you off. It suits the game perfectly and believe me, can be quite a head scratcher.
I do remember certain elements being a bit frustrating to solve, from a gameplay stand point, but overall a pleasure to playthrough.
Though this never elevates to the same standard of Portal 1 & 2 it is none the less a pleasant gaming experience with a few nice touches unique to itself. Little ike being one of them...
BONUS: I was impressed with the implementation of the Alienware lighting. Each ability on the glove was assigned a colour and when in use, the lights on my m14x lit up that colour. A very nice touch -but not for everyone.
