Interview snippet

"Will the ingenious physics-based puzzles seen in the original Penumbra continue in Black Plague?

Without a doubt! We’ve added more physics puzzles and less inventory-based challenges to the game. It’ll definitely be more hands-on with the physics. We’ve even added being able to rotate objects you hold, resulting in a much greater level of control than before."
