subAtomic is a more or less traditional point-and-click adventure created in three days during the latest Ludum Dare by Murray Lewis and David Blake. subAtomic also happens to be a short game with simple puzzles, simple sounds and simple graphics that emphatically showcases just how funny, refreshing and elegant such an unassuming offering can be.
It's all about a dysfunctional couple wanting to take their son on holiday with the help of S.H.A.T (that would be Space Holidays via Accelerated Transport), a method of travelling involving the shrinking down of passengers and the use of accelerators, and, at times, especially when things go wrong, a method of travelling that might just let passengers meet Carl Sagan and Albert Einstein.
subAtomic will happily run on virtually any Windows PC.
