About The Desmond Debacle
In The Desmond Debacle, the first puzzle pack, gamers will power up the Inter-Dimensional Shift Device for a brand new adventure deep in an unexplored wing of the labyrinthine Quadwrangle Manor. Old friend Desmond, the drinking bird, offers up even more brain-twisting and complex puzzles for hours of inter-dimensional puzzle solving.

About IKE-aramba!
In IKE-aramba!, the second puzzle pack, gamers are charged with rescue duty once again, but instead of a missing uncle, this time the victim is IKE (Interdimensional Kinetic Entity)! In this all-new adventure, players will have to rescue IKE and leap seemingly endless chasms while traveling through a newly discovered wing of Quadwrangle Manor.

In Quantum Conundrum, players take on the role of a young boy dropped off on his uncle's doorstep for the weekend; his uncle just so happens to be the brilliant, eccentric inventor, Professor Fitz Quadwrangle. Upon entering the Professor's vast manor home, retrofitted with crazy technology to test his latest hypotheses, players quickly realize their uncle has gone missing. Fortunately, players immediately find Professor Quadwrangle's latest invention, the Inter-Dimensional Shift (IDS) Device, which, at the press of a button, can shift the world around them to a different dimension. In order to find their uncle, players use the IDS to dynamically alter between five dimensions and progress through bizarre and challenging rooms in the labyrinthine Quadwrangle Manor. Becoming adept at using the various dimensions – sometimes in combination – will be critical to solving puzzles and moving on to the next room.

Quantum Conundrum is rated E for Everyone with Comic Mischief. Please visit the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) website at www.esrb.org for more information about ratings.
