    A surreal trip through an Alice in Wonderland-like dreamscape, Superliminal delights and surprises with level after level of inventive, bizarre puzzles.

    A refreshing and inventive addition to the puzzle genre.

    It might not be the toughest puzzler out there or the most highly polished, and it is true that some puzzles do tend to repeat themselves. None of that matters, however, because this is such a thoroughly unique experience that everyone should taste. The first day this came out, a clip of it went viral and reached the front page of Reddit. It wasn't a speedrun or glitch or anything like that. It was just someone playing the game. That's the kind of novelty this title has, and it is absolutely worth your time to go out and experience it for yourself.

    When Superliminal’s mechanics work, I felt like I was participating in a magic trick, but when they didn’t I felt like the developers were playing a trick on me. I was both amused and frustrated while playing Superliminal, but didn’t think much about the game after its credit’s rolled. Like a fading dream, Superliminal is also a bit ephemeral.

    Superliminal has a fantastic concept, but its puzzles are quite irregular. Some of them are excellent, while some others are not very inspired. If you like this type of first person puzzle-based adventure, though, you should give it a try.

    Superliminal is an interesting work creating an engaging atmosphere, able to capture the player and accompany him, almost unconsciously, towards the end of the journey. And the finale moral will leave a mark in many players.

    A soulless Portal copycat built around a cool gameplay mechanic, which would have flourished in a game by Double Fine or Valve. Superliminal has more originality than other copycats (see The Bradwell Conspiracy), but it’s absolutely devoid of substance and leaves you indifferent.

It’s like portal, but more about experiencing rather than puzzle solving. Your way of perceiving the environment will never be the same agin after finishing this game. Gameplay wise, the only mechanism is the forced perspective, it’s very tricky to explain to someone but amazingly intuitive. This level of innovation although is not quite Portal level, it’s definitely good to see from floods of similar 3A titles these days. Expand

Even though it starts as a puzzle solving game that has a funny way of dealing with physics, the story is what caught me the most. especially in the last 20 minutes. It kind of reminded me of Kafkas "Trial" when you did not really know what was going on around you, but you just knew that you needed to comply in hope that it will end.
    There was so much love put into the game, which makes it so awesome to play. I can only recommend to play this if you want to have a good time.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game is probably one of the best games I have ever played. The concept and the visuals and the gameplay and the surprisingly emotional message at the end are everything. Expand

Superliminal encourages you to see everything from another perspective and thoroughly. And teaches that problems might happen in your life, but you must not give up and try other methods and perspectives while approaching and solving those problems. It is calming but sometimes a mind-boggling and unnerving experience. In conclusion, it's a fun, didactic, and short but filling game. And it is definitely on my must-play list. Expand

    It's a unique experience, everyone should have it. Yes, it takes a bit of unnecessarily long but ultimately promises a unique 2 hour experience.

    Superliminal starts strong, very strong. Puzzle mechanics are different enough for it to pique interest.
    Unfortunately after the third "wake" things go dramatically downhill. Puzzle solutions become more mundane less imaginative and the solutions become less intuitive, which is ironic given the idea of the game is looking at things with a different perspective. The game quickly becomes a Stanley Parable walking sim, which as good as that game is, is not something I signed up for by buying Superliminal.
    Although the game is short, it ran out of ideas well before the end point, and I was rather wishing for it all to be over about three quarters of the way through.
    I am sure you can sense my frustration here, because after first half hour I was sure I had stumbled upon a classic game.
    It is not without some charm and interest, and of its genre it is pleasant enough to play through.
