Antichamber is not only good for was it does, but also for what is does not. It is not linear nor is is open-ended. If you play the game, then you will understand what I mean. The game treats you well by constantly rewanrding you for succeeding a challenge and even failing by encouraging you to try again and find another way to solve the game's devilishly hard puzzles, or rewarding you wil new route around puzzles to solve something either easier or harder. The game, as a game, always tries to confuse you as well as study you in order for it to predict your mistakes. A truely wonderful experience. This review is not meant to be helpful, but only describing why the game is amazing without spoiling too much,
9/10

This is one of the best puzzle games I've ever played. I really enjoyed learning the game mechanics by playing instead of having a tutorial (although I did have to check a walkthrough to literally walk through a door).

A bit of a recommendation, always test your new "gun" to find out all the things you can do with it, the upgrades are not always so clear.

This is one trippy game. Incredibly aggravating but endlessly enthralling. Definitely one of the most unique games I've ever played, even if it isn't the flashiest thing around.

One of *THE* best puzzle games in gaming history. The effort the developer put into this completely shows, and I can only pray to whatever God that allowed a game like this to exist for an Antichamber 2 to come out. It seems upon research that this is unlikely, which truly makes this game one-of-a-kind. This game completely outshines Portal 1 & 2.

Do not look up the answers to the puzzles in this game. You WILL get stuck. Drop it and come back to it later. If you beat it, try to replay it in a year. This game presents a true puzzle, and a very rewarding sense of achievement once you actually progress to uncharted areas. I congratulate anybody who gets through this game, or even a 100% completion without a guide or research of any sort.

TL;DR: This game is a work of art. Buy it. It's even worth it if it's not on-sale. It's ♥♥♥♥ing beautiful in every way, shape, and form, and the miniature stories related to the puzzles are the icing on the cake. I'm being 100% serious when I say this: 11/10. It's a MUST-BUY.

A satisfying puzzler with it's own interesting set of mechanics (this is unique and not a clone), the world is beautifully designed, almost impossible to keep track of where you are, but it's done in a way that it doesn't matter as it seamlessly transitions from one puzzle to the next.

Make use of the ESC key, to check out where there's more to discover (look for the big squares on the map).

i had watched a full let's play of this game a while ago, and decided to get it. i was worried that previously seeing it would ruin it for me, but unlike FEZ, that didn't happen at all. Even though i knew some things that would happen, everything just feels so nice and brimming with possibility.

This game does more in 8 hours than most games can do in 60. By far the best puzzle game.

Antichamber cured my addiction of wow for good. I've been preaching for this game since 2013. A friend ended up getting it and finishing it in a single, 8 hour playthrough, in ecstasy at the end. Others, having received the game for free, are at 10 minutes play time.

Can't say exactly what it is about Antichamber that can cause a perma mental switch, but it hits some hard while it leaves others indifferent. As a side note, I've seen this game's influence on numerous newer titles, and it always brings back the intense feels this game inflicted ^^

Interesting puzzle game that challenges you with things such as. "walk backwards" or "look into here to teleport" mechanics. Having to complete certain sections with limited supplies or getting the newer cube guns that allow added effects to your game play.

Mind bending puzzles on LSD, along with life lessons for the taking.

10/10 Would see a doctor again.


In all honesty though, this is one of the greatest, most headache-inducing puzzle games I've ever played. Bravo.

One of the most interesting and exciting puzzle games I've ever played! If you like to be mind-blown, then this is the game for you! Even if you're new to puzzle games, try this one out! It made a mysterious and thrilling playthrough series for my YouTube channel! You should check it out! ;) Too bad the game was kinda short, though I don't think my brain could've made it any longer! xD

This game is confusing. But extremely well made, and as long as you dont think too hard what you're doing, its not too mind blowing. However, this game has been made to stop you from not thinking and therefore, i found i could only play it in small bits to stop me internally combusting from the head first.
Overall, i thoroughly enjoyed this game and would recomment it to anyone looking for a simple but not at all simple puzzle game.
