From the creative mind behind The Adventures of Shuggy comes an exciting new retro-styled 2D platformer, a winner of Dream Build Play 2012. GameZebo gave it 5 stars and called it "An inter-dimensional 8-bit masterpiece" while Rock Paper Shotgun described it as "a genuinely smart, incredibly challenging puzzle platformer, that’s just packed with ideas and extremely well executed". Grab the gateway guns and explore a huge lab filled with mysterious puzzles in this classic platforming adventure. Use gateway technology to leap from one place to another, change size to explore small passages or defeat large enemies, walk on walls and ceilings to reach new areas and even travel in time to work together with past echoes of yourself. Move seamlessly between different areas of the vast labyrinthian map with no waiting for loading screens as you explore and discover new power ups. Use each of your new abilities to progress further, unlock shortcuts and find even more power ups.

We’ve made a few changes since the demo was released. There is now a story to the game, told through Ed’s thoughts as you explore his lab. The previous control is system is gone and replaced with one that now lets you aim directly where you want to place a gateway using the mouse. New music tracks have been added to reflect the mood of each area in Ed’s lab and new sound effects draw you into the experience more.
