Independent publisher and developer Team17 has announced that together with indie dev Italic Pig they’ll be releasing Schrödinger’s Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark, a fast-and-furious, action-adventure, platformer-puzzler-punch-up of subatomic proportions, on Steam on the 23rd September 2014.
Cooked up by the team behind the gritty, grown-up point and click trilogy Hector: Badge of Carnage and featuring the voice talent of the brilliant A.J. LoCascio (known for his role as Marty McFly in Telltale Games’ Back to the Future), Schrödinger’s Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark is part combat-platformer, part logic-puzzler, part open-world explorer, part character-driven adventure! It’s only appropriate that a game starring Schrödinger’s Cat can be many things at the same time.
Set in The Particle Zoo, a catastrophic event has caused all enclosures to open and all the primitive particles to escape! What used to be a cheery theme-park style environment is now utter chaos, and not in the mathematical sense of the word. The Zoo is put on lockdown, and the emergency services are called in to sort everything out. Those emergency services? Schrödinger’s Cat, of course.
Thankfully he’s not alone; by collecting and commanding an army of cuddly quarks, Schrödinger’s Cat can combine and create a total of 14 unique abilities to solve any problems he may encounter across the gorgeous 30+ levels of quirky gameplay. Reach new heights with the copter, blast your way through with the bomb and craft a handy net to capture those pesky escapees!
Schrödinger’s Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark will be released for PC via Steam on the 23rd September 2014.
Schrödinger’s Cat will also be playable at EGX London this month (25th – 28th September). Those attending EGX London should head down to the Team17 stand, which can be found in the Rezzed area of the show floor, to get hands on quantum physics’ favourite dead-&-alive feline!
