2021 Steam Awards
Superliminal was a finalist in the 2020 Steam Awards in the “Most Innovative Gameplay” category and the team is hoping to score a win this year in the “Labor of Love” category. Pillow Castle’s small team has made consistent efforts to improve and add to their game which has certainly been a labor of love since the initial launch in 2019. Vote for Superliminal here!
By order of appearance, here are the many updates that have been added since the November 5th release:

Bottomless pit technology
Removed cubes from possible randomizations in Whitespace Stairs room

Reliability fix for the Portal-To-First-Place powerup
Better cosmetic panel and Win screens
Clearer visual treatment for objects that cannot be grabbed

All-New Puzzle Room: Dome Projection

What is Superliminal?
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. As you complete puzzles to get to the next exit, certain patterns and truths become more apparent. In this game, everything is exactly what it seems to be! Wait, no… that’s not right. Everything is the opposite of what you think it is? That’s not correct either. This is a game about breaking expectations and thinking outside the box. What you see is what you get. Literally.

Experimental “Battle Royale” Mode
This seasonal update offers a fun—and frankly surreal—spin on the forced perspective puzzle game players have come to know and love. This totally normal, not-strange-at-all “battle royale” mode will pit up to 12 players 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. Just look for the exit signs… and watch out for the ducks!

Ready to grab some friends and join Dr. Glenn Pierce in his “SomnaSculpt Dream Therapy” program? Superliminal will be available on Steam with a celebratory 40% discount until December 1st, making it only $11.99 USD. Group therapy has never been cheaper.
