Schrödinger’s Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark – Trailer, Screens, Info – April 17, 2014

Schrödinger’s Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark is a fast-and-furious action-adventure, platformer-puzzler-punch-up of subatomic proportions.

At its core, the game is a cheerful, colorful and quirky adventure game that anyone can enjoy, from noobs to Nobel prize winners, with no math or prerequisite reading required.

“I frickin’ frackin’ love physics,” said Kevin Beimers, Italic Pig’s Director, “and I know I’m not the only one out there who does. There are so many cerebrally awesome concepts in physics that, unfortunately, are usually presented as either bafflingly complex or dreadfully dull. With Raiders of the Lost Quark I set out to make an exciting adventure at a subatomic scale that will inspire scientists and non-scientists alike, and a hero that physics lovers like me can rally behind.”

“I’ll be the first to admit that a quantum physics adventure is a tricky one to put into an elevator pitch, but thankfully, Team17’s loaded with geeks like me (no offence, gang!). Team17’s an ideal home for Lost Quark, and it’s a real honour to be working with the creators of the games of my formative years.”

Team17’s Managing Director Debbie Bestwick added, “We are really excited about working alongside Kevin on Schrödinger’s Cat, when he showed us the game we definitely were not in two minds about it! We’re delighted to be his partner. The man is a genius and beyond!”

Schrödinger’s Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark will be released for PC in Q3 2014.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
