New Magrunner video shows that “Portal meets Cthulhu” is surprisingly effective

Magrunner: Dark Pulse has a fairly simple premise: it’s a first-person physics puzzle game where you move objects around using magnets, and then, suddenly, Cthulhu nightmares from beyond reality appear. Sounds interesting? Well, this new video makes it look pretty interesting as well — and, wait up, is that a shoggoth at the end there? Sweet.

Check out a batch of recent Magrunner screens over here. There’s no release date yet, so you’ll just have to sit tight and wait.

Not going to lie, this game looks pretty damn awesome!

 

You got that right. Might have to look into this some more.

 

Is that tobias?>

 

That does in fact look awesome.

Haha that’s what I was thinking.

 

Doesn’t bother me if the game cost less than $20 on release, Glad I funded this game last year as the final product is shaping up nicely.

 

Looks very interesting.

Although surprise, the male character is an “edgy” looking douchebag…

Still, physic-y stuff plus freaking space monster-y stuff = goodness.
