"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's incredible how well this flash game holds up in 2021. It still looks surprisingly sleak and modern for what it is and some of the purely visual touches are actually kinda amazing, considering it's flash.
Good level design too. Well done.

just wow like this is very good also this would have been much harder without pause but anyway great game great physics i love the shine of the cursor on the ball

How do i play every time i try it shows me an exclamation mark and nothing happens?


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.
