"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.

It was fun, but it was better the first time when it was called Portal.

Hey!

Every player shouldn't say that this is bad. I nearly had a shock of my life when the computer was playing by itself (in the end) and I thought that mine had technical problems... The graphics was perfect, the atmosphere at every level was perfect, the challenges were perfect, the sound was perfect, the... Let's just say that EVERYTHING was perfect.

By the way, the ghost rooms were good as you can "predict" the future in 100% accuracy so don't just cancel it without any reason. (Hope that the average score for this game will be 10/10...)

EXCELLENT CONCEPT!

Without looking at the author OR the submission list, I thought to myself, WOW. This reminds me SO MUCH of this AWESOME fighting game... What was it called again? Chaos Faction?

What a bender of a game you have here! I would LOVE to see a sequel (if there could be one) explaining new possibilities (if there are any)...

There isn't much of a story, but you left me hanging on a HIUGE hook, which is why I want a sequel. What happens to the first participant? Is he in an alternate time or dimension, or did he just vanish? And how can the anomaly be prevented? ....Or was that supposed to happen?

Anyway, another GREAT submission by EON. Keep em coming!

I hope I don't spoil the ending.
