Superliminal is a short, sweet, but superficial exploration of one the most interesting mechanics to find its way into a puzzle game. It excites with the possibility of what could be, but fails to deliver on the challenges its mechanics beg for.

Superliminal is 20 minutes of revolutionary gameplay, the feeling of which is gradually fading as the game turns into a walking simulator. An interesting story could pull the project, but beyond the concept of "it's all a dream" the authors could not move, not to mention the insignificant duration. Thanks to the musical accompaniment, which does not allow you to finally fall asleep from boredom. Perhaps by the console version, the authors will recognize their mistakes and add new content and puzzles to the game. I want to believe it.

It is usually easy to make comparisons with other games. Something along the lines of "if you liked this or this, then you'll like this as well." That isn't so easy for Superliminal, because there are simply no others like this. That's what makes this such an easy recommendation.

Overall, the Pillow Castle experience is therefore a well-built puzzle game, certainly appreciated by fans of the genre, but unable to rival the sacred monsters of the category in terms of inspiration, originality and power of the story.

Some may walk away from this game, thinking it was just a game, but I would say that they missed the theme entirely. Bravo, Pillow Castle Games.

Superliminal, a mind-bending puzzle game from Pillow Castle, is a refreshing and inventive addition to the puzzle genre. This particular entry among puzzle games requires thinking from different perspectives in a new and exciting way. Curious? I thought so – you'll find all your Superliminal info right here!

Superliminal plays with your perceptions while you play with it

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.

Puzzles range from clever to obtuse, and exploring these impossible spaces is incredibly compelling
