Just finished the game and really enjoyed it. Definitely one of the better Portal-inspired games I've played.

I don't know what's going on in that shot, but it looks cool as hell.

Puzzle game QLs always end up a little frustrating to watch :P

Looks cool, this game.

EDIT: Also, that's not "clunky", that's fucking *physics* (or, at least, moreso than these things tend to be, which I like)

EDITEDIT: Holy shit! This is a Frogwares game?! Does Sherlock die in this one too?

First!

I hope they do revisit this like Brad said, because I don't have a PC that could run this game, but I was left intrigued.

I think Brad and Jeff seem to cancel each other out; Jeff is great at backseat puzzle solving.

I'm sold. Though I may turn the voice-over volume down and just read the subtitles. Yeesh.

@beachthunder: How long is it?

I'm a terrible person to ask about this, I always take my sweet ass time. I'm usually twice as slow as anyone else. I took 16h; the average on How Long To Beat is 7.5h though.

If you want to know how many levels there are - there are 39 levels split over 3 acts.

This game seems like the portal sequel Valve will never make, like Nintendo which will skip games in order to make more of an impact and continually innovate without actually releasing a game. They iterate without releasing the iterations till they get far enough ahead to really seem advanced from the previous game.

Ah, if I were to play this game, that same charges attracting each other thing would bother me so much.

*cough* New Endurance Run? *cough*

Wasn't interested at all until H.P Lovecraft got throw into the mix.

Thanks that helps enough I was simply curious if it's more Portal 1 length or Portal 2. Seems to be the latter.

I just get a little burned out by puzzle games after a while.

The Swapper and now Magrunner, two challenging puzzlers in a short amount of time. I've been loving it.

Did I do thaaaaaat?

I quite like the magnetic field effect, but it can be overwhelming XD

If you want to get a brain workout, buying these games is a no brainer.

I've been loving the pacing towards getting to the Cthulhu stuff, mysterious and taking its time rather than showing all their most interesting stuff at the beginning (God of War).

Also, Gamaji has a Sherlock Holmes mug. I want that!

Man, the things I would do with six arms. :D

Man, that smooth and high framerate. You can tell it's a PC game even by watching the Quick Look :O

Posted by DonPixel

This the kind of "awesome" videogame I think every time I hear SONY talks about indie self publishing on the PS4.

Posted by DeadMonkeys

The framerate.

Good God the framerate.

Edited by dsouvannarath

Mmm that framerate

I understand the complaint, and I had that same thought a few times throughout the game too; but honestly, I actually think it turns out much more intuitive this way.

Posted by White

I hope they realized that their perception of "inconsistency" with the magnetism is cause the objects have momentum to them - such that the repulsion can actually push the objects out of the sphere of influence of the magnetism.

cool! concepts and story seems great, not sure i like the design of it so much (not the graphics, the design) but i might pick this up after i get round to quantum conundrum. would love to see more first person puzzle platformers

Quantum Conundrum was a disappointment, don't bother with it. Magrunner is way cooler, and doesn't have annoying first person platforming segments. Only game that can do first person platforming is Mirror's Edge, and having platforming with physics-y stuff like in Quantum Conundrum is a nightmare. Also, characters were getting annoying in that game.

Read as 'Magruber'.

The movement of the camera is playing tricks on my eyes. But I really like it. It's hard to explain, but it feels good.

"Kamaji" from Miyazaki's Spirited Away, anyone else immediately think of this?

i liked the first person platforming in portal sort of!! but that might be down to the source engine. also i got quantum conundrum free becuz of PS plus so i'll definitely play it at least

Why is Drew voicing the main character?

Posted by hollitz

A PC quick look? But...where's Patrick. :(

This is going to be a hard adjustment period.

Posted by bkbroiler

Manipulating magnets seems much more tedious and less awesome than Portal.

Posted by fargofallout

Where was the hint of this interesting thing Brad kept talking about? I was working and only half paying attention - was there more than the six-armed guy?

Posted by Flappybat

Hah Brad got stuck on that room for less than I did. Putting a hole beneath the two stacked platforms is a jerk move, that's the kind of thing Valve's playtesting helps weed out.

Can't believe I haven't seen that movie yet.

Those days are long since gone, mon ami.

I know. I just never got that quest and so I wanted to nostalgically relive the Whiskey days.

Posted by cooljammer00

Oh right, I remember when this game was announced. They really played up the Cthulhu mythos stuff, but it seems like they don't get to it till later.

This game is basically Cabin in the Woods, then.

Edited by cooljammer00

@bkbroiler: It's certainly much slower than Portal was, with less room for error. Changing the box you are standing on's color and then surfing it across a room is fucking madness.

Qube and Portal eey

Edited by AlKusanagi

I wouldn't have played it normally, but when I heard about the HP Lovecraft stuff I picked it up. Been playing it for a week and loving it.

I though Quantum Conundrum was pretty swell. Anyway, I can't help but feel that you haven't actually finished Magrunner, because there's a fair amount of platforming. Although, I do agree that Mirror's Edge is the only game that's done first-person platforming well - it's a huge shame that most first-person characters don't have legs :(

I hoped someone would have posted this already, glad to not be disappointed.
