"In 2008, the largest particle accelerator ever created, the LHC at CERN's particle physics lab in Switzerland, was activated for the first time. The research obtained from this experiment has revolutionized the way we think about science. Un-answered questions that have puzzled man since the dawn of humanity are finally being answered. Are there extra dimensions? What is dark matter? Is time travel possible? Epsilon Experimental Sciences Research Facility aims to discover the potential of this whole new world of science, and you have been appointed as the primary test participant."

Going with what seems to be the current trend, I've made my version of a portal game. The challenges are based around solving tasks using various fictional technologies discovered as the result of the LHC experiment, primarily wormhole manipulation. Other methods include gravity shift, time reversal, and general cognitive dexterity.

I started this a while back and planned on coinciding it with the release of Valve's Portal, which coincidentally was around the same time CERN was planning to activate the particle accelerator. Unfortunately Epsilon still wasn't ready by the time Portal came out and the LHC still hasn't been switched on, so I decided to leave it until now.

Thanks to Geier Arnold for the original soundtrack, and for tirelessly helping out in the beta testing process.

NOTE: If you are experiencing problems with lag while freezing the ball, try turning off the ghost rooms by pressing G.

I decided to beat it before writeing this.

Took me about 45 minutes. This was full of win and made me think. And the end...hahah. You got me there. You don't need to do a thing- hah. Now, I was reading past reviews, and I simply ask...Did Portal have stationary portals? (black holes.) No. Did portal have any inkling of gravity change? No. This had many different elements that were very creative and the "glich" some people may have been talking about is the ball getting stuck between portals. (Because if your ball is going into the left side of one portal, It's comeing out of the right. (or if set on a side, the top.)) I bet these people had the top part of their portal being blocked by a wall, ergo- The ball gets stuck. Going back in time was very well done, but only one puzzle actually made me retry a couple times until *facepalm*'d and realized...Just press x. Hah. This is awesome, and if you were to make this game again with "Insane" difficulty- I would very much enjoy it. This was a great concept- And still is. Not trying to put Valve down, as I love them, use Steam, play their games, but... This is nothing like portal. You actually have to think about this. Portal was easy. =/ Love you with mouth, k, thx bye!

Awesome

A great puzzle game, loved every minute of it. After reading some of the negative reviews, most are about the game being full of glitches (I have found none), the writers being too stupid to figure it out, getting bored, or it being a rip off of Portal (apparently portals can never be used in any game anymore other than Valve's Portal) Absolutely one of my favorite physics games, please make more!
