Magrunner Dark Pulse Trailer

The Magrunner Facebook page links to this video which offers the first look at Magrunner Dark Pulse, 3AM's upcoming science-fiction Cthulhu game (thanks GamesHQMedia). The clip shows a couple of enemies, but these inspire cowering, not combat, and the gameplay depicted is mostly the manipulation of environmental puzzles, which looks noticeably similar to Portal, though it's not clear if the depicted cubes provide any companionship. Here's word from the description:

In the near future, in 2050, a handful of young and brilliant citizens have been chosen by Gruckezber Corporation to join the Magtech training program for space exploration. Equipped with a special glove using Gruckezberg's technology, the candidates have to solve their way through a maze of challenge rooms that get more and more challenging, by magnetically charging objects in the level that will attract or repel each other. But when an earthquake disrupts the training program, what seemed to be the chance of a lifetime for the candidates will soon become a descent into folly and cosmic horror! In this video, plunge with Dax, the hero of the game, into a future where Technology confronts the Cthulhu Mythos!

Yeah, Portalish clone, but it looks like it might be fun, as long as the QTEs are kept to a minimum and the player is actually allowed to play. Portal moved the story along much more subtly and less invasively than most new consolized crap nowadays. FPS is a check in the mandatory column for a me with a game of this type.
