Square Enix unveiled two upcoming downloadable content packs for their physics-bending puzzler, Quantum Conundrum. Both packs will be released for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 at $2.99 (or 240 Microsoft Points) a piece.
The Desmond Debacle, the first puzzle pack, will have gamers powering up the Inter-Dimensional Shift Device once more, for a brand new adventure deep into an unexplored wing of Quadwrangle Manor. According to Square Enix, it will offer up even more brain-busting and complex puzzles for hours of inter-dimensional puzzle solving.
The Desmond Debacle will be available July 31st on Steam, August 15th on Playstation Network, and September 12th on Xbox Live Arcade.
IKE-aramba!, the second puzzle pack, charges gamers with rescue duty once again, but this time the victim is IKE. Players will have to leap seemingly endless chasms while traveling through yet another newly discovered wing of Quadwrangle Manor in order to save IKE.
IKE-aramba! will be available August 28th on Steam, September 11th on Playstation Network, and September 12th on Xbox Live Arcade.
Steam users who purchased the season pass will get both of the new DLC puzzle packs for free.
Quantum Conundrum is a first-person puzzle-platformer developed by Airtight Games and published by Square Enix. Originally released on Steam on June 21st, PS3 on July 10th, and Xbox Live Arcade on July 11th, it features an innovative inter-dimensional gameplay mechanic that requires the player to creatively think their way out of challenging puzzles.
As the twelve-year old nephew of the quirky genius Professor Fitz Quadwrangle, players must navigate the labyrinthine Quandwrangle Manor to rescue said uncle after an experiment gone wrong. Shortly thereafter ensues plenty of gravity shifting, time shifting and a healthy dose of platforming.
Since its release, Quantum Conundrum has went on to receive fairly positive reviews within the gaming community, including an 83% on Gaming Illustrated (from yours truly). We found the game to be both challenging and entertaining. The art design is fantastic, and it is supplemented by a soundtrack that includes great voice acting, sound effects, and music. The game clocks in at about 6-8 hours and the download content puzzle packs should add in a few more.
