    Perception is reality. Escape from a mind-bending dream where everything is exactly as it seems.

    As you fall asleep with the TV on at 3AM, you remember catching a glimpse of the commercial from Dr.Pierce’s Somnasculpt dream therapy program. By the time you open your eyes, you’re already dreaming - beginning the first stages of this experimental program. Welcome to Superliminal.

    Superliminal is a first-person puzzle game based on forced perspective and optical illusions. Puzzles in this game give you a sense of the unexpected. Players need to change their perspective and think outside the box to wake up from the dream.

    Superliminal is a breath of fresh air, the kind of game you want other people to play but don’t want to talk with them about until you’ve both experienced it. An unassuming package on its face that as you peel back the layers, will be filled with surprises and gratification as you find out what point of view it wants you to see the puzzle from. With a moral to its story that is uplifting during a time which we could all use a new perspective, Superliminal is one of the more inventive games on a Nintendo platform today.

    Will Superliminal resonate with everyone as much as it did with us? Possibly not, but regardless, if you’re looking for a game in a similar vein to Portal, you’ll be right at home here. It’s pretty short, so if this bothers you, then you might want to pick it up at a discounted price. Otherwise, you’re in for a wholly unique experience that completely stands on its own, and delivers a message that – in 2020, at least – is exceptionally powerful.

Superlimnal brings a first-personFitting in neatly with the lineage of previous optical illusion based puzzlers such as Echochrome and Crush. Superlimnal brings a first-person view to the table. It spent many years (Original reveal was all the way back in 2013!) in development, and it is certainly worth the wait! Expand

There was maybe one puzzle which was a bit too obtuse but generally it was a fun experience. Visually it was also a real treat especially in the later levels. It's quite short but that was a plus in my opinion. It's the perfect game to relax with and enjoy in between bigger releases. Definitely worth playing in my opinion. Expand
