I'm not going to play 20 dollars on this but I'm certainly going to pick it up once there is a good Steam sale.

Mark overcomes complex puzzles, warped physics, and a sprawling game map to bring you his review of indie puzzler Antichamber.
seems like something you need to play to understand..... his footage made all his gameplay seem confused to me lol....but I probably just don't understand what's going on....I would try it for sure
This is hardcore gameplay? This is a masterful game? This is a masterpiece? Thanks, I'll stick with the bad, common games with unimaginative graphics.
@PowerDingALing So I assume you hated Portal and Journey, too.
@Leboyo56 Surely did. Come on, my best friends love to play soccer games, and I just can't stand soccer games. And we're best friends. Can't we all just play what we like and express our opinions without breeding a war?
@PowerDingALing It's not like those "bad", "common" games with "unimaginative graphics" are, in essence, bad. Everyone enjoys what they want and it's not all the same. The reason why this game may seem so fun is because it is a new concept fleshed out into a game. I like trying new things and so do many others. :p
I've been too quick to judge in the past and I like to keep an open mind, so I decided to play this game and try to understand what the fuss was about.
In this case, my first impressions were spot on. What a tedious, uneventful and mindless game. Not only does it hurt my eyes with it's disgusting amateur visual design, but it's so boring it literally painful to sit through.
Fairplay to those who enjoy this game, but I prefer something a bit more involved and stimulating for my senses.
I'd buy it for 10$ not for 20$... this crappy looking game isn't worth 20 bucks FFS!
Also if you think you're "smart" because you like this game... I got news for you, you're an idiot.
@JDFS If you think a games value is exclusively defined by how good the game looks, then you clearly are in no position to call someone an idiot.
One would think that it was about the enjoyability of the game, and what it offers you in thinking and entertainment, not by how shiny it looks. Because I'll tell you what: I've played some really horrible games that had really good graphics, yet were boring to tears. I'd much rather pay for a game with sub-par graphics but incredible content and innovation, than the latest and greatest graphics engine with the same ol' content that has been used before.
To be perfectly honest, I think this game is more visually pleasing than most modern shooters and their copy and paste textures.
Game is absolutely masterful. You'll feel like you're igniting parts of your brain you've never used before. Within 5 minutes you can go from feeling like a god of a strange new universe, to a curious, lost little child, and back again seamlessly.
Yes it is frustrating, but that's a trait all the best games in the past 20 years have had, and it's better of for it.
Some idiots just need pretty things to look at, and will blame everybody but themselves when the game makes a fool of them, but if you're prepared to try something different, and you're prepared to feel a little stupid and intimidated, this is one of the most rewarding, refreshing games of the decade.
@naryanrobinson Well, I secretly think this game looks boring and the design looks amateur, but I don't want people to think I'm a fool...I'd better pretend I see lots of depth in it.
Hmmm, anyone else thinking of the Emperor's New Clothes?
@shanethewolf "design looks amateur"
that's a pretty strong (and incorrect) statement considering you haven't played the game.
the simple, mostly-white visuals are hard on the eyes but are necessary to create the spacial illusions that a lot of the puzzles are based around.
@shanethewolf Well you don't need to worry about people suspecting you're a fool in the future, since you've done a pretty good job of broadcasting it.
Thanks for clearing that up for all of us.
@shanethewolf Oh all those thousands of people. How about open your eyes and look around?
How many people were there that fit that category exactly? And how many people were there that liked the game?
Yeah that's right. You insulted everyone then I insulted you. But you don't exactly deal with the facts do you? You're just going to ignore that little number as you've already done is your last comment. Lets see how long you keep it up.
@shanethewolf Lol, that's really how your brain works huh?
I guess you're just too wrapped up thinking about yourself to realise you simultaneously insulted just about everybody here as well as the reviewer and game devs multiple times.
But hey, even now reading this you're thinking of the next comment you can make which will save your own ass some dignity instead of admitting what a toxic personality you have.
So good luck with that.
Never let your mom design your computer games!!
Seriously disgusting visual style, lacking any kind of taste, colour coordination, composition or design skills.
Regardless how well the game plays, I value my eye sight too much.
@shanethewolf WoW...really dude,really? You completely miss the point of this game. Go and ply A:CM ...and good luck with your eyes.
@shanethewolf as I commented above, the game's puzzles wouldn't work without the graphics being the way they are.
@shanethewolf You value your eyesight, and yet you spend time on a computer? Just a thought...
You have your own right to opinion, of course. But I pose a question to you:
Could you do better with your current set of artistic skills and programming knowledge?
Wow, this game looks terrible. If I wanted to hallucinate I would drop acid. It's a review for a puzzle game but we didn't see him solve any puzzles. The only thing I saw him actually do was put a small block down so he could jump over a wall.
Game is shit.
@L0mak You obviously don't have any idea as to what a puzzle is, do you?
@L0mak There is a reason he didn't solve anything... its a puzzle game, you are meant to figure it out on your own, that is the entire point of the game. What is the point of buying a jigsaw puzzle that is already put together?
Short answer: There isn't one.
@L0mak You are unbelievably ignorant.
Finally beat it, WOW :)!!!! How to rate a game like this? On one hand I feel like trhowing up, on the other I enjoyed every minute! Brilliant game, nothing else like it.
@nomailx Exactly! There are some very pretentious reviewers at Gamespot....the types that would go into an art gallery and pretend to see hidden depths to a black square on a white canvas or spend a night watching interpretive dance.
@nomailx Actually this kind of game is more fun when you're playing then it looks. You have my liking for being a smartmouth. And i bet it is true what you said when applyed to 1 third of the ppl talking about how cool it is.
@nomailx You think it looks boring. That is an opinion. Many people think it looks awesome. That is another opinion. On a scale of 1-10 i thinkthis game looks like an 8.5 or maybe a 9, its a very smart game.
Your comment on the other hand is at most a 1.5 posting on something you don't like, precisely because you don't like it, makes you look stupid.
@nomailx Complete with the naruto avatar and everything. Go figure.
please go back to trying to push cubes into triangular holes.
@shanethewolf You're not receiving valid retorts because you're making a fool of yourself.
You can't even know how much you're embarrassing yourself right now.
@shanethewolf Yeah you used that one like 10 times already idiot. Learn some new words.
