The power duo that brought you such long-lost IF classics as Oo-Topos and Infidel later came back with this zany adventure game that is centered around principles of physics. As a hapless student zapped into virtual reality in your mad professor's machine, you must explore a world where almost everything is a metaphor of principles in particle physics, all aiming to achieve the ultimate goal: becoming the first human being to get to see the mysterious particle X. This is a difficult game that has some devious puzzles, although they are all logical. Well-scripted NPCs enhance the atmosphere and overall zaniness.

In 1998, Mike Berlyn released a much-improved version of this game through his company, Cascade Mountain Publishing, along with Infocom-style feelies scanned in .pdf format. Unfortunately, his company went under in early 2000, and Mike has graciously decided to distribute this new version free of charge. The game and the feelies are downloadable off ifarchive.org (link below: just scan for "dumont" on the page it links to).
