"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.

This is the most detailed game I have EVER played. YOU CAN SEE THE REFLECTION OF THE MOUSE IN THE BALL. COME ON. You can make a game and you can make a piece of art. You did the latter. Very good job

also the sounds are REALLY good, the effects of going into the portal too. VERY nicely done.

An incredible game that honestly blew my mind the first time I played it. I'm usually pretty stupid when it comes to puzzle games and this one is no exception, but the mechanics made my experience fun than frustrating. However, after returning to the game in 2019, I found that I couldn't reverse time with x. I'm not sure if it's just my computer's problem, though.

It's very fun, unfortunately I need to come back to it later for my computer does not allow me to hold any key and move my mouse, and I am not computer literate enough to know how to change it.

A beutiful piece of art.
