Superliminal | Mini Review

What is it?

Superliminal is a first-person puzzle game developed and published by Pillow Castle. After being inducted into the Pierce Institute’s new SomnaSculpt programme, a form of dream therapy via innovative technology, the environments within your mind start to become increasingly deranged and nonsensical. The only way out is to press onward, solving the numerous puzzles on offer.

Platform(s)

PC

Pros
Cons
Uses a clever gimmick, whereby grabbing  items from afar or nearby makes them increase or decrease in size exponentially.
Trippy, seamless visual effects.
Absurd levels can be amusing.
Clever solutions to puzzles.
Puzzles aren’t very challenging or strenuous.
Dialogue isn’t particularly funny.
Little replayability.
Lasts for about a few hours.

Verdict

Superliminal is more like a creative walking simulator with impressive visual mind-f**ks and series of underwhelming tasks. As creative as its gimmick is, it severely lacks any sort of enjoyable activities to take part in and challenging tasks to solve.
