Magrunner blends sci-fi with the Cthlhu Mythos


By on April 6, 2013 at 11:16 am

Depending on how long you’ve been beating the drum from on top the crowd-funding bandwagon, you may not remember Magrunner. French studio 3AM Games asked for €100,000 way back in August last year and by gum, they got it, probably because their pitch is of the kind that makes your credit card itch: Portal meets the Cthlhu Mythos.

The near-future sci-fi effort still doesn’t have a release date, but it’s been picked up by Focus Home Interactive and is looking pretty special. It’s built on unreal Engine 3, and has our hero, Dax, training to confront Lovecraft’s nightmares with the sheer power of his mind, by which I mean solving physics puzzles, including magnetism-based conundrums, using the Magrunner glove.

A handful of new screens, posted past the break, show off Dax’s journey from sleek testing centre to the hellish world that begins to creep in after MagTech’s team are trapped in a testing facility by an earthquake.

Completely forgot about this game and its crowd funding last year, Been looking for a new First Person Puzzle game to play since Antichamber, Quantum Conundrum & Q.U.B.E etc.

This is definitely one to look out for.
