Puzzle game Superliminal gets a Battle Royale mode

By - | Views: 9,195

The very clever puzzle game Superliminal, where everything is about your perspective now has multiplayer was a "Battle Royale" mode where you're all a Chess piece. It's a little weird but it also looks like plenty of fun.

Superliminal is a first-person puzzle game that uses perception as a mechanic. You play as someone who wakes up in a surprisingly lucid dream. You complete puzzles to reach each exit, while looking around to grab objects and change them based on how you're looking at them. It's all about thinking outside the box. What you see is what you get. Literally.

What's said to be only available for a limited time, so it may vanish after the holiday season coming up, this new mode is pretty surreal. Up to 12 players battle against each other through a series of randomly generated rooms full of surreal obstacles in a race to the end, under the watchful eye of the Standard Orientation Protocol.

Currently, it seems the multiplayer mode isn't in the native Linux build, so you may need to use Steam Play Proton. Update - the developer said:

Multiplayer is coming to other OSes as soon as we can get it working. The update that added it was actually an accidental upload of our development version -- the multiplayer wasn't actually functional there.

You can buy it for Linux on Steam.

Multiplayer was already patched in when I checked the small update after the multiplayer update. (Native not proton)
I didn't find any matches so probably not cross-plattform?!

And it disappeared after the big patch (> 1 GB).

Superliminal is right up there among "games I never would've guessed would get a battle royale mode", but I enjoyed the game itself enough that I'm...curious, I guess? Even as someone with no real interest in battle royale-type games. Actually, what I've love to see (maybe from modders with the level editor) would a Portal 2-esque co-op mode—imagine if, say, resizing your partner(s?) was the solution to puzzles.
