Recomendações de Curadores

"An intriguing simplistic puzzle game, that is very story driven. The Story begins vague enough so curiosity is raised but enough is given to get an idea"


“I haven't cried playing a video game before; it's not like it's a habit. But there's something about the loneliness of being a down quark all alone in a subatomic space that really underlined the joy in finding an anti-down quark to combine with.”
The Guardian

“The game feels fantastic. It’s a joy to whiz around the simple environment. This game illustrates the idea that a game doesn’t have to be visually packed to look good; indeed, its artistic style is reminiscent of flOw.”
Kotaku AU

“It’s a story-led, arcade puzzle game that seems to have a lot of intelligent thought about it.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

Acerca deste jogo

Particulars is a game with a unique combination of arcade-action and puzzle gameplay, set in the mysterious world of subatomic particles.

Taking control of a single quark, you must negotiate the fundamental forces of the universe. Other particles will push and pull at you - you'll always be on the brink of losing control and being dragged towards annihilation!

Woven through the game is the story of Alison, a young physicist struggling to outrun her troubled past. Her journey through the subatomic world is drenched in memories (both good and bad), and will ultimately lead her to some powerful revelations.


  • Based on actual particle physics: Enter the world of sub-atomic particles and take part in the interactions between them.
  • A puzzling narrative: Particulars is a game which blends arcade and puzzle gameplay with an engaging story about a troubled young scientist.
  • Over 100 intriguing levels: Explore the four fundamental forces of the universe over ten chapters of increasingly complex play.
  • Dig deeper: The Particlepedia provides information on each particle in the game, the differences between the game world and the real world, and links to other information sources.

After beating this game, I have to say the effort of beating it, totally not worth that ending. The story itself is given in snippets after each level, and after a set you get a short cutscene. At first I thought this was a brilliant way of cluing people in on the story without being heavy-fisted about it, but some of the cutscenes repeat with tiny little details changed, and it gets a little confusing as to whether or not your game is broken at that point.

As for gameplay, you start out only having to deal with positive and negative fields. This is a simple mechanic, and it continues for a few sets before you learn something new about the game. By the end you'll have come across several different mechanics over time, which are interesting in their own right but some of the level layouts or rather...bad. You have to either clear out particles by making them smash into each other, or move a certain type of particle to a location. The problem comes when you start doubling up on forces you have to deal with. When massive particles are flying towards you constantly, and you have to precisely hit them to send them flying off to an exact place without yourself getting pulled in...the cluster of different forces makes it nigh impossible to effectively move, and by the end of the game it feels like random chance.

You shouldn't have to fight against the controls of a game to beat it. In the last few levels it took probably thirty-fourtyfive minutes each. Fine, some games that's normal. But this game puts you in a little arena against set entities to interact with. It probably takes five-ten minutes to figure out the puzzle, and after that it's just a frustrating journey of fighting against the game's forces to try and accomplish the goal you KNOW how to do but can't because of apparent randomness of the particles.

That said, this game isn't randomized. Like, at all. It's just the gravity-like attractions mean that if you're two pixels over from how you were last time, the ENTIRE board can suddenly shift around and end up moving in a completely different way than how it did before. So you have to be picture-perfect to get some of the levels completed, and even then it still feels like you just have to plain get lucky.

The story is fairly simple, but delivered in a delightful way. But the difficulty of some of the later levels in each set is pretty damn stupid, it feels like you're trying to break through a wall with a wooden spoon, while you're on fire. The beginning of the game? Very simple, a child could probably do the first set of levels or two and get a fair grasp at the science behind it. It's actually really relaxing towards the beginning, and mashing particles together in a sandbox is actually really fun. But when you have a specific goal to do, and that goal requires super precise timing in a game where you have to fight just to keep from moving, it's super frustrating.

It's a beautifully crafted game. The visuals are sleek, the science behind it is rock solid, and the transitions are really beautiful. In fact, if it wasn't for the difficulty being absolute trash at some points I would highly recommend this game. As is, the repeating cutscenes and frustrating gameplay are so bad I simply can't recommend it. Unless you just REALLY want a hardcore physics-based particle game, you probably shouldn't get this.

The game is both pleasant to interact with and meaningful, it even could teach you something about the composition of the atom without you knowing it! Some friend gives a depressive scientifically obsessed girl a garage particle collider (looks like an arcade machine) to experiment with, and thus to have the needed psychotherapy for she thinks that the subatomic particles are exactly like people - some can't live togather & some die without each other.. there are also UP's & DOWN's between the quarks and she has to reproduce in her memory, reenact some situations which gave her trauma.
So we have here 3 things togather:
1. a nice magnetic arcade of colliding discs
2. a laconical introspective melodrama
3. a comprehansive visual encyclopedia of contemporary subatomic theory
A definite YES!

Игра приятная на ощупь и глубокомысленная, она даже способна дать вам представление о составе атомного ядра без вашего ведома! Один друг предоставляет депрессивной помешанной на науке девушке гаражный ускоритель частиц (выглядит как игровой автомат) для проведения экспериментов и, через это, прохождения психотерапии, так как девушка уверена, что субатомные частицы - точь-в-точь как люди - кто-то не может ужиться, а кто-то погибает в разлуке... у кварков также существуют ВЕРХНИЕ и НИЖНИЕ в отношениях, и ей предстоит воспроизвести в памяти и перепрожить травматические ситуации.
Итак мы имеем сразу три вещи:
1. милую магнетическую аркаду про сталкновения кружочков
2. лаконичную интроспективную мелодраму
3. доступную наглядную энциклопедию современной теории атома
Определенно ДА!

It's a nice casual game that ends up being more like an avoider game than anything else. No real skill is required though, do your best and you should be fine.

For the full write up visit my YouTube channel,

Particulars is not a game for everyone, and that's a good thing. Often we see game developers try to please the masses and in doing so please no one. The team at SeeThrough Studios have chosen to create a game they wanted to create and this becomes clearly evident as you experience Particulars.

Particulars explores unexplored territory with very strong writing in an arcade-action puzzle game, never have I played a puzzle game of this difficulty and actually been drawn into the story. You experience feelings of futility as you realise the actions you're performing in the game are on such a microscopic scale that in the grand scheme of things they have no effect. The interactive nature of the game enhances this and helps you realise how our main character feels and you're able to see correlations between the subatomic world and the world which our main character lives in.

While it may seem simple at first, as you delve deeper into the story you start to see connections between the story and gameplay, and as the story intensifies so does the difficulty of the puzzle. As the game progresses the need for good puzzle solving and solid execution of the puzzles is needed, this is because of the games arcade-action nature where everything happens so fast and all your actions have a passive effect on everything around you.

If you're not afraid to use your brain for a couple of hours Particulars is the game for you, with its strong storytelling and its surprisingly difficult puzzles this game is easily worth the price of admission.

Full Release - All the small issues have been cleaned up, the game feels ultra smooth and its aesthetic has been improved. I'll update the review when I finish the game now that it's out of Early Access.

A truly innovative take on games as a medium for telling stories, particulars is the story of a particle physicist looking inwards.

The main gameplay is an arcade style particle physics simulation - essentially marbles with magnets, explosions and puzzles. You don't need to know any science to play though, because the game teaches you everything experientially as you go.

Between levels, we see glimpses into the life of Allison, our deeply flawed but nonetheless inspiring protagonist. It seems that she's very good at particle physics, and would rather run simulations than deal with the strife and hardship that has beset her personal life.

You follow her emotional journey. Step by step unravelling clues of her life and psyche... all the while you play as her, running the simulation. In this way the game is a metaphor, as you look deeper into the soul of allison she looks deeper into the quantum world. As I said, this is a game about a particle physicist looking inwards.

Allison is an inspiring role model. She teaches us that it's ok to not have all your ♥♥♥♥ together, and that scientists are allowed to be human. Together with her friends and colleagues, this game also normalises the idea of successful women in science (Alison's mentor is female, and gives her career advice. That's right an indie arcade game passes the bechdel test) and shows us that you don't need a barbarian saving a princess to tell a compelling story. Like seriously, this game normalises both the idea of a female protagonist, and the idea of a scientist protagonist - these characters are just compellingly HUMAN, and a refreshing change from the testosterone charged male-jock protagonists most games present.

This game is a must have for science geeks, for anyone who cares about portrayal of women in media, and for anyone who wants to see games used as a medium for telling stories. Or for anyone who wants their kids to have positive attitudes towards any of those things.
