Play this: Escher-esque 'Antichamber' upends the puzzle game

New, 17 comments

Some puzzle games are about giving you simple rules and tools, then asking you to extrapolate how they'll apply to increasingly mind-bending scenarios. Others, like the recently-released Antichamber, ask you to rethink even the simplest preconceptions about how your world works. Antichamber's brightly colored, perspective-twisting world pairs time-worn platitudes and motivational clipart with puzzles that turn these proverbs on their heads — and make a mockery of anything you thought you knew about spatial reasoning. The game is normally $19.99, but it's $14.99 through Steam until February 6th. Still on the fence? You can read Polygon's review over here.
