Antichamber takes place in a fairly simple game world which allows you to concentrate on the experience rather than being bogged down by textures. To beat the game you must acquire four different guns which are used in different ways.

In the game you’ll start in a single room which gives you information regarding the controls, a map that allows you to jump to places that you have been to previously and a countdown timer which starts with 90 minutes on it.

The game is a psychological adventure that challenges what you know about the first person genre. Players will have to take a step back, carefully examine the environment and solve the cryptic clues that the signs provide. As you do this for more puzzles the typical expectations of what you expect to happen will break down and be reshaped into something new.

In Antichamber the player will explore a number of non-Euclidean levels in a first person perspective. Players are limited to moving and jumping originally but eventually gain access to a strange gun which will again flip what you consider to be normal on its head.
