'Superliminal' Celebrates First Anniversary With Experimental Multiplayer Mode Next Week - Trailer

by Rainier on Oct. 27, 2021 @ 7:00 a.m. PDT

Superliminal is a puzzle game where you explore the ambiguity of perception and depth in this surreal world by manipulating objects in physical space according to their perspective.

Literally think outside the box. Kick the box. Flip the box and get inside the box. Look up. Look back. There is no box!

Perception is reality… until it’s not.

Superliminal will test players’ problem-solving skills as they must figure out how to bend reality and perspective to their will in order to continue.

Superliminal is a single-player, first-person puzzle game that uses perception as a mechanic. You play as someone who wakes up in a surprisingly lucid dream. As you complete puzzles to get to the next exit, certain patterns and truths become more apparent. In this game, everything is exactly what it seems to be! Wait, no… that’s not right. Everything is the opposite of what you think it is? That’s not correct either. This is a game about breaking expectations and thinking outside the box. What you see is what you get. Literally.

After a wildly successful launch last year, developer Pillow Castle Games is excited to mark the one-year release anniversary of their forced-perspective puzzle game, Superliminal!

To celebrate this milestone, they will be adding an all-new multiplayer mode for free on November 5th that will allow players to feel the joy and frustration of puzzle-solving with friends in a series of frantic obstacle courses. The experimental “battle royale” mode will be available through the holiday season.

This seasonal update offers a fun spin on the forced perspective puzzle game players have come to know and love. This totally normal, not-strange-at-all “battle royale” mode will pit up to 12 players against each other through a series of randomly generated rooms full of surreal obstacles in a race to the end, under the watchful eye of the Standard Orientation Protocol.

Just look for the exit signs… and watch out for the ducks!

From November 5th until November 12th, Superliminal will be available on Steam for a celebratory 50% discount making it only $9.99 USD—the steepest discount ever!

Whether you’re looking for a new puzzle game to test your noggin or just enjoy playing with perspective, have we got news for you: soon you’ll be able to get lost in your thoughts, as you feel the satisfaction of figuring out each solution and advancing in this mysterious, surreal world.

Superliminal is available for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC (Steam / Epic Games Store).
