    At its core, Infini is your basic puzzle/platformer. With its highly unique visuals/audio and absolutely bizarre storytelling, however, it becomes something much…deeper? Maybe. I guess that depends upon how you react to it, and I don’t think any two players will take it the same way.

    The word puzzler doesn't do Infini justice. It's definitely not for everyone, but I'd say that it's a game that everyone needs to try at least once. Very rarely do the mechanics in puzzle games surprise me, and I think Infini's are well worth exploring, even if you only have a vague interest in puzzlers.

    Infini rewards those who can accept its oddities. The story and presentation aren't going to be accepted by the masses, but if you're up for something that you likely haven't seen before and want to try out some atypical puzzles, give Infini a shot.

    If you have an affinity for trippy abstract game worlds then the challenging puzzle-like Infini will definitely keep you hooked.

    Infini is an ambitious, unconventional puzzler. Its unusual yet conceptually simple mechanics will get you thinking laterally, but the game’s steep difficulty and unnerving atmosphere combine to make the experience somewhat grating at times.

    For good and for bad, there's something original and disturbing about Infini and its choice of art style to convey its message. Unfortunately the game ends up relying too much on its aesthetics and less on its gameplay (which is competent enough) to deliver a memorable experience and often many players will find themselves completely bewildered by what's on the screen. The result is a bit of a problem: some players will undoubtedly see a kind of masterpiece, albeit unsettling, while others will simply see a game that uses its looks for shock value but not much more.

    The unappealing art direction makes studying screens for an escape all the more unpleasant. The bonkers plot feels like it’s trying too hard to be profound and winds up being more confusing than anything else. Infini definitely has some things going for it, but after traversing several, maddening layers into insanity, players may not want to endure the hardships that come with that potential.

    My initial impression was very positive. The story tells about a person called Hope, who is in Infinity, an abstractly odd universe whereMy initial impression was very positive. The story tells about a person called Hope, who is in Infinity, an abstractly odd universe where everything seems to be in endless loops. He wants to find the way out of Infinity and seeks help from his friends Time, Poetry, Technology, but also has to encounter War and Fatality. For me this all is more like a human mind as a whole, put in visual form, meeting with external feelings like reality, time and space.

    Gameplay is mind-bending and it takes a while getting used to the very unique style of… basically everything player has to do—or look at. The weirdness is endless, but yet it all makes so much sense. The world of Infini reminds me of our dreams, where we think all makes sense and nothing is weird, even when we dream the most impossible things at the most odd surroundings.

    The puzzles sometimes got me, though. I got stuck few of them and towards end they becomes even more crazier and ingenious. Making sure players will have to bend their minds every 4 dimensions and think outside of the box. This is also the reason why diffculty sometimes gets out of hand and a way too out there. Some puzzles were such a pain to solve.

    Infini is one of my favourite indie games of the crazy year of 2020. I really liked the story and the main character Hope. Even if the gameplay and art style looks like it was made under the influence of heavy hallucinogens, the game overall is very understandable and relatable.
    It dives into the world of complex human emotions and thoughts—which likely we all have struggled in life—realizing it fully visually and with unique puzzles. I truly recommend Infini for all of you puzzle gamers.

    Very unusual game, but fun and puzzling at the same time. Definitely good if you like hard puzzle games with a twist.
