The Entropy Center is a time puzzle shooter from Stubby Games
British studio Stubby Games has announced its latest game, The Entropy Center. This first-person puzzle game is reminiscent of the Portal series, except with a time-bending gun instead of a portal gun. You’ll have to think backwards, solve puzzles, and chatter with your gun if you want to save the Earth.
Players will take control of Aria, who wakes up in a massive, ramshackle space station called The Entropy Center, which is orbiting Earth. Unfortunately, the Earth became a massive fireball after an extinction level event (where have I heard that before?).
“With the help of Astra – a talking gun capable of turning objects back in time – Aria can restore the facility’s collapsed bridges, reassemble destroyed pathways, and solve ingeniously intricate puzzles to progress to the heart of the Entropy Center in hopes of surviving a seemingly doomed space station and somehow finding your way home,” reads the game’s description.
Along the way, players will uncover the truth behind why the Entropy Center is in such a bad state and how Earth was completely destroyed. The answers are somewhere on the station, but you might not like what you find.
“The Entropy Center pulls no punches,” said Stubby Games founder Daniel Stubbington. “This is the game I’ve wanted to make for a long time and I can’t wait to see players immersed in this crazy world of time manipulation I’ve created.”
According to Playstack Managing Director Harvey Elliott, “The Entropy Center is a shining example of what we’re looking for – it’s an extraordinarily clever, satisfying and witty puzzle game that resonates with fans. We’re very pleased of its response so far and have big plans for the coming months to maximize its success.
If the trailer is to be believed, The Entropy Center looks like one hell of a game. It’s sure to please fans of Portal, Half-Life 2, and any time-based story. Based on the gun’s time-reversing powers and how you use it to solve problems, Tenet seems like the best example.
The Entropy Center will launch this year for PC (Steam), PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One.
