Antichamber is an insane FPS puzzle game that relies heavily on abstract puzzles based on shape and color and unreal structures that might completely change on you if you look away from them.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Brilliant Puzzles
The primary theme to puzzles in Antichamber is that things aren't how they appear. If you walk down a hallway and turn around, you might be in a totally different area. This leads to some incredibly interesting and difficult puzzles, forcing you to think about the world around you in a totally new way.
Pro Unique minimalist visuals
Using stark white halls with glowing colors there is a minimal beauty to Antichamber. One room houses great abstract art which changes depending on which way you are looking at it.
Pro Good for speed running
A great game to put your speed skills to the test! Great for those who love any percent speedruns!
Pro Lateral thinking
Con Lack of story leaves the player wanting
There is not much of a story to be found in the game and what there is is pretty convoluted and has the player asking what even happened by the end of the game.
Con Focuses less on its main selling point near middlegame
Near the middle of the game, you get a thing that a lot of the puzzles start to focus on, and the mind-bending puzzles and tricks to the player take more of a backseat as this mechanic changes the game to more of a traditional style of puzzle game. There are still elements of it, but much less of it.
Con Short for its price
The time to beat the game is well around 7 hours for an average player, and there's not much extra content left after that. In that time the game doesn't exactly go deep in its innovations on the "mind-bending" idea (no gravity flips, just teleportations).
