Of course, for fans of game collecting and preservation, having this excellent indie puzzle game in physical form will be a real treat. Also, the physical release will include any post-launch content, such as updates and the Challenge Mode, on the cartridge. No downloads required!
For those who don’t know, Superliminal is a game that sits snugly alongside The Stanley Parable and Portal. Obviously, then, it’s a brain-melting puzzle game, with a great sense of humour to boot. Unravel the mystery of the Somnasculpt dream therapy program and expect the unexpected as each level presents new ideas for your brain to chew on. Furthermore, the game has a deep and thoughtful narrative that raises some interesting points in its short runtime.
The physical Nintendo Switch edition of Superliminal will be available worldwide from superraregames.com on the 5th of May at 6PM BST. You can check out the game’s Switch trailer below:
