"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.

another genius programming game

the game itself is amazing... I'm just not a fan of this... its a spinoff of the portal, which again is amazing programming, but not just not my type... just being honest... excellent game though.

Stunning

I haven't really been as active on newgrounds as I would like these days, and can't even remember the last time I reviewed a submission but had to write one for this. You combined amazing game play that remained simple and interesting, stellar graphics, and a new bit of twist on a familiar concept.

Awesome work man, keep it up.

Wow!

The only thing this game is missing is a cynical and conniving AI masterbrain XD

So much like Portal but harder.

Polished puzzle game

The first four levels are there to introduce the player into a pretty immersive puzzle game involving all sorts of crazy effects. Each ability is explained in detail before heading into more difficult puzzles. At first I wasn't challenged by them, but the further I went on the more times I had to retry a puzzle before discovering the answer. This game is going to my hard drive next.
