What is the job of a games journalist? For me, right now, the job is to be driven crazy mental-potatoes by excellent browser game My First Quantum Translocator, and I urge you to do the same. Made by the same team behind the (in my head) BAFTA award winning Don’t Shit Your Pants, My First Quantum Translocator is a Portal/VVVVVV-style platformer that tasks you with mastering a single, tricky mechanic- in this case, the ability to drop a shadow of yourself, then teleport there with a flick of the spacebar, with any momentum you had prior to the teleport carrying through.
If you’re a member of that weird caste of weirdoes that would rather watch a video of a game than play it, I’ve embedded a walkthrough video of MFQT after the jump. Thanks to Indie Games Blog for the tipoff.
Look! I wasn’t even lying.
