Critic Reviews for What Lies In The Multiverse
Overall, I enjoyed What Lies in the Multiverse and feel like most people will as well. Just don’t say I didn’t warn you about some of the game’s punishing puzzles, especially the timing-based platforming ones. If you have popsicle fingers like I do, I wish you the best of luck working your way through the game, because you’re going to need it.
What Lies in the Multiverse is one of the most unique puzzle/platformers released in recent years. Featuring gorgeous pixel-based graphics and a charmingly self-aware sense of humor, the game constantly throws a variety of new set pieces and obstacles at you and continues to find clever ways to use its central universe swapping mechanic. Despite some unexpectedly dark undertones, the game remains mainly upbeat, telling a story that deals with loss, friendship, and life in a surprisingly mature way. What Lies in the Multiverse is well worth picking up for fans of puzzle based games.
I have to admit it: What Lies in the Multiverse hits the zeitgeist like few other games did. The entertainment world has a multiverse fever and Studio Voyager uses this concept to create a stimulating puzzle-platform where every solution is just a reality-switch away. But beyond the effective gameplay there's a solid narrative, that tells tragedy through irony and creates bonds between the player and his character.

What Lies in the Multiverse is one of the most fun indie games I've played in quite some time. The puzzle-aspect of it is rather on the easy side for most of the game with nothing too complex, but where the game really shines is the story. If you have a few hours and about fifteen dollars to spare, definitely take a look and see What Lies in the Multiverse
What Lies In the Multiverse manages to distinguish itself from its peers in terms of both engaging puzzles and a darkly humorous but moving narrative. Despite some mildly annoying logistical issues, Multiverse is a wonderfully clever puzzle platformer with a distinctive style, a quick wit, and a ton of heart.
If you’re new to puzzle or precision platformers as a genre, What Lies in the Multiverse would make a great contender for your first game. The novel puzzles aren’t difficult nor punishing, and there is a lengthy and engrossing story to break up the platforming components, so you aren’t overwhelmed or frustrated by their continuity. As an added bonus, the game is beautiful and has a sprinkle of creepiness to keep you on your toes.
