While players won’t be thinking with portals, they’ll be using some kind of energy beam gun to manipulate objects and time as they progress through the game’s interior space-station environments. The game also seems to feature some degree of destructible objects. Akin to Portal, it doesn’t appear to feature traditional first-person shooting combat, although there may be some hostile enemies to contest with.
The game is currently available on wishlist on Steam, with its description reading: “Think in reverse. Outsmart the impossible. A mind-bending first-person adventure where you solve ingenious and complex puzzles by rewinding objects through time.”
The Entropy Centre comes from developer Stubby Games and is the studio’s debut title. Publisher Playstack is also behind the game, most recently known for 2021’s Soulslike title Mortal Shell.
Mortal Shell received a fair three out of five-star review from NME, which reads; “Once Mortal Shell gets into its stride, its dynamic combat and unfussy upgrade systems start to shine. But lack of variety and reluctance to depart from the Dark Souls formula ensure that it never truly inspires.”
