Do you like Portal? I have never played the series, but friends have convinced me it’s a lot of fun if you want to get experimental with physics. Today, not only is Portal getting a sort of spiritual successor, but it’s getting some new twists in Impulsion. The idea of the game is you’re in a robot training facility and need to use force-field guns and bend time and space to defeat devious challenges. Best of all, Impulsion is out today for Steam! If you’re interested in the premise, just read the full download of details below.
