First game I have ever felt sick playing.
I am wondering if any others may have come accross feeling physically sick while play this game. I love this game! I do. It is very good.

I just start playing again today for about 10 minutes, and began to feel physically ill. It was after I had the blue cube-gun thingy . I am not sure why it started here. Perhaps due to so much falling and being a sort-of motion sickness thing, I have no clue.

It was just very weird because I have never ever felt ill while playing a video game before... if you exclude training mining on Runescape years ago

Has anybody else had this happen while playing Antichamber?

Haha man, mining in Runescape. Those were the days.

Back to the topic- you're not the only one, there was a giant thread regarding this. I also felt a little bit dizzy but it seems to fade when you get used to it.

Got the same Problem - The missing textures are ♥♥♥♥ing my mind and I get sick :/

I spent waaaaaaaaaaay too much time on Runescape >_> I'll admit they were fun, up until my friends bailed, and I sat at level 131 or so, so close to 138, but could do it no longer.

The odd thing was, was that I never had any problems beforehand, so I felt as if I should have been used to it, but for some reason I wasn't. I guess it's good to know that it has affected other people, though, and I am just not crazy

It was a very sterile environment. I felt crazy after spending a few hours playing the game, but not sick.

Yeah, this concern means I'm not willing to buy the game until I personally have a go at it to see whether I would get sick. Watching a video just isn't the same.

Before I built the awesome computer I'm using now, I tried to play Borderlands 2 with all the settings as low as possible, and I got motion sickness for the first time in my life. I can see Antichamber making someone sick, though, it's very disorienting. I could only imagine what it'd be like with an Oculus Rift.

Oh my... this with Oculus Rift might just be worse than what I imagine Mirrors Edge would be with the Rift HAHA!

The bright colors gave me a headache.

I feel pretty dizzy after playing the game, and it has happened just on this game.

Many people have gotten nauseous playing Antichamber because of the coloring, head bobbing, fov, and lack of "depth perception". Typically it's just the head bobbing for most people. If you bought the game in the humble bundle, then go download the standalone version from there and this version provides an extra config file that can disable the head bobbing. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Antichamber\UDKGame\Config\DefaultGame.ini" Find the first line that says "Bob=0.010" (should be right near the top), just change this value to 0 to disable the head bobbing.

For extra gag use an oculus :)

I played this game for the first time today for about a half hour and actually felt sick to my stomach and lightheaded. I turned the game off because I actually thought it was something I ate. Felt better after about 5 minutes of turning it off.
