In lieu of Portal 3 (come on, Valve), we'll happily take The Entropy Centre, a freshly announced first-person puzzle game that looks to be in a similar vein. Developed by UK-based indie team Stubby Games, it's not asking you to think with portals, but to think in reverse. Yep, this game is all about manipulating the passage of time, and you have a talking gun helping you do it.
Set aboard the titular space station, which appears to be falling apart around you, your main aim is to rescue planet Earth from an apocalyptic demise, which is already in progress. Protagonist Aria can "restore the facility’s collapsed bridges, reassemble destroyed pathways, and overcome ingeniously complex puzzles" using ASTRA, that talking gun we mentioned. You'll be solving various puzzle rooms in order to reach the station's core, build up energy, and theoretically send Earth back in time and save the day.
It seems to have a sense of humour about it that'll certainly offset the doomsday premise, and the footage in the trailer looks pretty promising. We're certainly intrigued to learn more. The Entropy Centre is coming to PS5 and PS4 in 2022, so it's not too far off.
What do you make of this one? Will you board The Entropy Centre? Rewind in the comments section below.
