Steamships Ahoy - Antichamber

Antichamber is now available on Steam, offering this already award-winning puzzle game at a 25% discount between now and February 6th. Want word on the game? Are you ready to have your mind blown? Well? Okay:

Antichamber is a mind-bending psychological exploration game where nothing can be taken for granted. Discover an Escher-like world where hallways wrap around upon each other, spaces reconfigure themselves, and accomplishing the impossible may just be the only way forward.

Several years in the making, Antichamber received over 25 awards and honors throughout its development, in major competitions including the Independent Games Festival, the PAX10, IndieCade and Make Something Unreal. Antichamber was also supported by the Indie Fund.

Looks vaguely familiar - I think I might have tried an early version a while back. But I also see a ton of stuff I don't remember. Have to pick it up at some point and try again.

I remember seeing videos of it a year or two ago, I think, and wondering what happened to it.

Some of you probably did play this, as it was a Make Something Unreal finalist and one of the first UDK games announced.

IGN, who has been much more favorable to indie games in the past 6 or 8 months, gave it an 8.6, which sounds like a huge accomplishment.

Yeah I watched TB's preview of this with one of the developers, it looks like a great puzzle game. It's got that zen aesthetic and the abstract/conceptual puzzles play great in first person. There is a "relearning" theme to the game where the puzzles have been designed to tease a certain approach out of you based upon how game mechanics usually work in modern games - approaching like this normally leads to failure and you begrudgingly embrace the alternative logic of this game from the ground up.

TB played a few levels and the level of design and execution looked consistently high - you worry with games based around a niche concept like this that it tails off after a few levels but there's reason to think that won't be the case here. I am straight on this one!

My problem is that while I love games like this, they always end up making me feel like a dumbass, when I can't solve things...

Don't forget to look backwards too...
You'll understand when you play it.
