Superliminal

Critics Consensus (Skip It)

Superliminal is a truly unique puzzle game with original and cleverly designed puzzles, but its 20 minutes of revolutionary gameplay quickly fades away as the game turns into a walking simulator with superficial exploration.

Game Info

Falling asleep at 3AM, you close your eyes to the cheesy commercial of Dr. Pierce’s dream therapy program. You wake up in an unfamiliar environment, only to realize that you’re stuck in a dream – a dream where perception is reality. Welcome to Superliminal.= Superliminal is a first-person puzzle game inspired perspective and optical illusions. Players tackle impossible puzzles by thinking outside the box and learning to expect the unexpected. This game features a wonderfully subdued world, an intriguingly voiced narrative, and things that are really weird.

“An original gameplay mechanic is hard to come by, and these shapeshifting puzzles feel like nothing else. The parts of the game that are derivative aren’t bad, just second best. The parts of the game that are original are extraordinary.”

“Perhaps there’s an angle from which Superliminal is a satisfying, Portal-style thriller, but unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find that angle. And as the game was so fond of reminding me, perception is reality.”

“As confusing as it is entertaining, Superliminal constantly uses unique mechanics that go against your expectations, even once you’ve adjusted to what it did last time. It might be short, but it’s a genuine delight.”
