John de Lancie Joins the Quantum Conundrum Team

By Rebecca Smith, 6 years ago is an upcoming XBLA puzzler created by the mind behind Portal: Still Alive, Kim Swift. The game sees players take on the role of a young boy who arrives at his uncle's house, home of many scientific experiments. Initially having little interest, the boy's reluctance turns to fascination until something goes wrong. His uncle is now missing and the boy must traverse the laboratories using an Interdimensional Shift (IDS) device to pass between different dimensions.

His uncle is otherwise known as Professor Fitz Quadrangle. The professor will attempt to guide the boy through the many hazardous experiments that make up his home. He is wacky and inventive, as all professors tend to be, and he has a star voice talent behind him. John de Lancie, star of Star Trek: Voyager and Breaking Bad, will be voicing the character and had this to say:

The professor’s character is funny, a bit bizarre, and a great joy to perform. If players have half as much fun with the game as I did playing the character, then they’ll be having a great time.
Have a look at this interview with de Lancie where he lends his thoughts to the character and to the game itself.

Quantum Conundrum is due to be released this summer. A price is yet to be confirmed.
