The Professor will be voice acted by none other than Star Trek: The Next Generation's Q himself, John de Lancie. His wry, smug persona will have an interesting contrast to Ellen McLain's egotistical AI GLaDOS.
According to de Lancie, "The professor’s character is funny, a bit bizarre, and a great joy to perform. If players have half as much fun with the game as I did playing the character, then they’ll be having a great time.”
Adding to the Portal connection is the fact that Airtight Games is developing Quantum Conundrum, which was founded by Portal co-creator Kim Swift.
Quantum Conundrum will be released this Summer 2012 on PC, Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.
