"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.

"portal rival"

this is truely an inventive game that indulges ones lust to go suck opn that for beating a test they can't. A game that lacks only one thing a level creator but considering how superb the rest of the game it still get the 10/10 5/5 treatment



My real name is Eon :D

and great game XD



Awesome!!!!

I love it, and my only wishes are that you make a level maker (share levels?? =D) but I think the reboot process should instead load up the credits (as like, it's BIOS) and to have the main menu be when it's loaded up. (Plus then you could make the credits bit a preloader. :P)



dude you are amazing

WOW OH MY GOD DUDE THIS IS JUST LIKE PORTAL
