Here's an in-depth look at Magrunner

Or someone getting very confused by this Portal-like puzzler, if you like.

Focus Home Interactive isn't Valve, and neither for that matter is Frogwares, but that hasn't stopped the pair making a puzzle action game following in the footsteps of Portal. And why should it? Magrunner's an interesting spin on what's become a well-worn genre, throwing in some knowingly cheesy sci-fi dialogue and sprinkling in some Lovecraftian lore that helps distinguish the sterile setting.

Oh, and it's also bastard hard. Watch Ian Higton get all confused by some of its early puzzles in the Let's Play below.
