Objects can be picked up and dropped at vast distances while retaining the size that they are in your hand, allowing you to shrink and grow anything you can pick up. Many mechanics only show up for short sequences before being replaced by something even stranger, too, allowing Superliminal to surprise you constantly all the way to its ending.

Superliminal is a hard game to talk about without being able to go deeper into the details of why the experience turns out to be so brilliantly designed, but trust me that this is a curious and clever game, that also carries an unexpected dose of positive messages by the end.

Superliminal challenges players to change how they perceive their environment in order to progress. This works both for and against the game. While it may take you a little to start thinking outside of the box, sometimes literally, it soon becomes second nature. You start to look for the things around you that can be shrunk, enlarged, or used in abstract ways.

Despite Superliminal‘s sometimes less than comfortable gameplay mechanics, it provides an extremely unique take on the genre. Coupling that with a minimalistic but impactful narrative on how we can chose to live our own lives make it a memorable experience, even if not always that fun as a game.

Superliminal is a little more clinical and flat than it deserved to be, but it’s still a spectacular, perception-bending experience that everyone needs to try. It sparks joy, and that’s a lot in itself.

Superliminal is like that trip that you know is going to be short lived but you are still totally justified in doing it because you know it will be the best trip of your life. With a strange mix between Portal and The Stanley Parable, Superliminal proposes an introspective journey where visual beauty is taken to its maximum expression. One of those experiences you have to try at least once in your life.

This level of unexpectedness is a tad frustrating at times, but it is extremely satisfying to complete a level. The game is broken up into nine levels, each pulling parts from other levels while entering new terrain. One level may deal primarily with depth and another with scale and paradox.
