    Pillow Castle's proposal is very different and original, showing how the possibilities can be infinite according to the imagination of the creators.

    Superliminal on the Xbox One offers the tools to fully enjoy this concept for what it is. Playing with perspectives is a novel idea and you can have a lot of fun with it. Repeat playthroughs are encouraged with plenty of secrets to uncover, but there is a bit too much repetition within individual sections of Superliminal.

    Superliminal is a stimulatory puzzle game where you are being aided by a company to obtain better sleep and dreaming. As you progress it talksSuperliminal is a stimulatory puzzle game where you are being aided by a company to obtain better sleep and dreaming. As you progress it talks about you falling off of the orientation path. Starts initiating emergency procedures and you start receiving messages played on little boom boxes randomly located throughout the path and puzzles. All of the puzzles become a little more insane and stimulating as you progress throughout the game. As you progress you’ll also receive random quotes of wisdom from the boom boxes as you progress through the emergency procedures attempting to exit the dream state you have been progressing through. Not everything is a straight path or solution sometimes you are required to literally run in circles so be prepared. Perspective is everything in solving these puzzles, so if you like to challenge yourself and stimulate your brain look no further than Superliminal for your Xbox One console. If your a fan of past experiences like Portal then you’ll be right at home in the genre. Full Review »

It deserved better pacing and level design. It was missing a plot to give the experience more weight. I'd like to have seen more made of the mechanics. But as a whole, it's a fun game and the puzzles are varied and surprising. Full Review »
