Antichamber review: frustratingly rewarding

It's difficult to describe what Demruth's Antichamber is, mostly because it's in a constant state of flux. What appears to be a crudely outlined room quickly becomes far more than that. Colors draw meaning where there was no meaning before. There's more to everything than meets the eye. Nothing is as it seems in Antichamber and Alexander Bruce's brainchild becomes a far richer experience because of that.

IGF 2012 Main Competition finalists announced

The finalists for the 14th annual Independent Games Festival's Main Competition have been announced, highlighting some of the greatest indie games to come out in the past year.

IndieCade 2011: Antichamber

IndieCade 2011: Antichamber

One of the most fascinating finalists at this year's IndieCade festival was developer Alexander Bruce's unique first-person puzzle game, Antichamber. Formerly known as Hazard: The Journey of Life, Antichamber differs from anything else I've played in a couple of important ways. Its captivating, yet simple visual style uses elegant geometry and bright splashes of color to help keep players focused on its thought-provoking puzzles.

Antichamber dev discusses modifying the Unreal Engine

Antichamber dev discusses modifying the Unreal Engine

One of my favorite finalists at IndieCade 2011 was a surreal first-person puzzle game called Antichamber, developed by Alexander Bruce. Set in world of which M.C. Escher could have been the architect, the game presents players with puzzles that challenge many preconceived notions of perception, and even raises some philosophic questions. Visually, the game isn't quite like anything I've seen before, and the modified engine on which it's running is not one I would have guessed.
