"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.

This is a great game...

Two things you must do for the sequel:

1. Make it longer

2. You'd better be planning a story. What happened at the end? And does the player have to use what he's learned to extract himself from the mess?

If you're not planning a sequel, you deserve hate mail.

JUST SIMPLY AMAZING

I am not one to usually follow the crowd but this game leaves me no choice! It looked good, it sounded good, and if possible it probably would have smelled good too! The last level where it played itself looked waaaay complex, this guy(s) did some hard work! The levels kinda had that "Oh, duh!" feeling once you figured it out. I hope you keep making great games!!
