My First Quantum Translocator

As some of the software from a certain programming
contest rolls into our archives, it has been my delight in exploring the entries.
First up, I would love to talk about the title that piqued my interest the most: My First Quantum
My First Quantum Translocator (MFQT) is a reconstruction of a decidedly Portal-inspired puzzle-platformer game by the same name originally developed by Cellar Door Games,
Inc. Kevin "leafiness0" Chen's work is highly faithful to the original game and,
while currently incomplete, is certainly playable in its current form. MFQT currently boasts
some nice collision detection, speed, and some really enjoyable little animation routines (I love the energy bursts upon translocation!).
Kevin has stated that he intends to add the in-game text and finish the title in the near
future, which I am greatly looking forward to. How exciting! Now, if only we can get
secret character sprite-swaps like in the original...
