Portal co-creator Kim Swift's new game is Quantum Conundrum

The premise of the game is that your uncle has invented some gadgets that can send object and environments into alternate dimensions

As revealed this morning by Gamespot, that upcoming game from Dark Void's Airtight Games, now joined by Portal's Kim Swift, is called "Quantum Conundrum".

As the announcement trailer explains, the premise of the game is that your uncle has invented some gadgets that can send object and environments into alternate dimensions. In a game mechanic that's essentially "everything is a portal," players have to solve puzzles by "phasing" objects in and out of different dimensions -- along with playing by a level's rules. As Gamespot notes, in the Fluffy Level "players will make objects in the room light, allowing them to push around once-immovable objects to clear a path forward. There will also be a dimension that slows down time, one that reverses gravity, and a fourth that has not yet been detailed."

Quantum Conundrum is heading for downloadable release on the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC (via Steam) next year, but the game will be also be shown at PAX.

For now, you can watch the announcement trailer right here.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
