Square Enix has today revealed that John de Lancie – best known for his recurring role as “Q” on Star Trek: The Next Generation and Breaking Bad – will lend his voice to the highly anticipated first person platform puzzle game, Quantum Conundrum.
In the game, de Lancie takes the lead role as the wacky and endlessly inventive Professor Fitz Quadwrangle. Hopelessly lost in another dimension, Professor Quadwrangle is determined to guide his nephew through his extraordinary, yet extremely hazardous, manor home.
“The professor’s character is funny, a bit bizarre, and a great joy to perform,” said de Lancie. “If players have half as much fun with the game as I did playing the character, then they’ll be having a great time.”
Developed by Airtight Games, Quantum Conundrum is the next game from PORTAL co-creator, Kim Swift, and is expected to be available for download this summer on Windows PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.
