Particulars Review for PC

This is the review for the Windows PC version of the physics puzzle title, Particulars, from developer SeeThrough Studios.

Particulars is set in the world of subatomic particles, where each passing level grants you a little slice of information concerning a girl named Alison, her life, her tragedy, and something more sinister at her heels. I cannot stress enough that while the game is a fun and challenging puzzle game of navigating real-world subatomic interactions, it is the story that binds these particles together and creates a narrative experience in a very clever way. Particulars has already won several awards including Freeplay’s Narrative and Audio awards. Objectives within Particulars are always changing, but usually involve manipulating the board in a clever way to create interactions between particles that will achieve your end goal. The game additionally includes an encyclopedia, which can fill your brain with a lot of information on the subatomic world, and while an understanding of particle physics and quantum physics may help grasp interactions quicker, no experience in these advanced fields are needed to excel at the game. read more
