"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.

I liked it, a lot.

Overall very amazing, I loved the animation, especially. On my top 10, definitely.


Well, my wormholes stopped working at level 1c, I couldn't figure it out, but I was still a good game all around. Nice work EON.

Yeah, this game was really well thought out, lots of effort put into it I can tell.

Other than that, words cannot describe the epic- and awesomeness of this game. I loved how even the music and sounds reversed themselves through the time reversal part.

This needs to be on a console...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ive played other games like this but this was the best one so far. I love how some of ther problem solving was non linear it was great 5/5 10/10

Very Portal-esque, but still good.

It's not as much of a "rip-off" as people have been nagging about, but it does share many similar qualities.

The presentation was excellent, the animation was stunning, and the game mechanics were creative.

The game just sort of got boring after a while. Maybe it's just me, but the learning cirve sor of flattened out. Nonetheless, good job.
