OverviewOverview

Superliminal is a puzzle game incorporating optical illusions and forced perspective. As you play and explore you can manipulate objects so that when put down their perspective, scale and size has changed. This enables you to progress through areas previously inaccessible.

You play a character in a dream therapy program, but you have become trapped. As you are guided by the voice of the study's overseer, Dr. Glenn Pierce, you try and escape from the dream. The deeper you go into the dream the stranger and more perplexing the illusions are for you to solve, but at the same time, the world starts making more sense.

There's a online multiplayer battle royale mode that pits up to 12 players against each other through a series of randomly generated rooms full of surreal obstacles in a race to the end, under the watchful eye of the Standard Orientation Protocol. Just look for the exit signs, and watch out for the ducks.
