Games like Antichamber
Hey guys, finished Antichamber a few days ago to 100% and i realised something:

Can you name any games that are as brilliant as this one?

It's not quite the same deal, but Kairo is probably as close to this game as anything I've played.

MirrorMoon EP as well.

EDIT: And for the puzzles, FEZ is worth a go.

I *highly* doubt you've 100% Antichamber. No offence, but it's actually impossible to 100% at the moment. One of the pink cubes is in an area only accessible via noclip, and another one requires clipping glitches to get to. There are 15 total, but only 13 that can be obtained without glitches or console commands. There is currently no in-game way to know how many you have found, although there is a third-party tracker created by speedrunners.

As for games like Antichamber, there really aren't too many. I would suggest trying the old beta version of Antichamber -- Hazard: The Journey of Life -- if you just want more, but it's not available anywhere for download anymore.

Well, i found the 14th one by accident, so it's as much as can be. Enough for me, anyways. Thx for the suggestions!

well not exactly
http://download.udk.com/showcase/HazardDemoInstall_May2010.exe
though there's really not too much of a point in playing that since it's almost identical to the full game except incomplete
I'd suggest a game called Against The Wall once it comes out
Also thanks to Biggles for suggesting MirrorMoon EP, i was not aware of that game's existence and it looks quite interesting

I bought both Kairo and Antichamber during the Autumn sale. Antichamber is the better game, but Kairo is also worth trying.

I'm kinda mixed about FEZ. One thing that really annoyed me is how it mixed different kinds of puzzles. A few of the puzzles require knowledge that can't be gathered by playing the game. One of the soutions was just brute-forced and still doesn't have a logical explanation. Fez shows you areas that are complete, yet those areas may hold information that is vital for other rareas Near the end, navigating between areas became annoying.

The Witness looks very promising!

Actually, if you're referring to the monolith puzzle in fez, someone on the FEZ subreddit came up with a very plausible solution.

FEZ, I admittedly had to stop playing, because I could see it would become the kind of thing that consumed me (I'm a software engineer by trade, and being an engineer unfortunately means I'm trained to not want to give up at a problem until it's solved... lol). If Antichamber's harder puzzles are "abstract", FEZ's harder puzzles approach "professional cryptography".

FEZ's puzzles are in a weird plane of their own, though. I recommend its main game, mostly, as perspective puzzles. The second, hidden half of the game is much more niche.. probably why it was so hidden. I wouldn't recommend going for full completion to the average player.

Anyway...

Another game that's popped into my mind as the kind of thing an Antichamber fan might get into is Master Reboot. I haven't played it all the way through yet, but the early stages were puzzley and surreal.

If you like games that need a lot of thinking, try SpaceChem.

Anyways,
Splice, Machinarium (A REAL MUST), The Dream Machine, L.A. Noire, and Braid (obviously).

This game is unique :)

If you want to crank the 'I have no idea what's happening' to 11, I'd recommend The Void.

I fully second the Void.

Antichamber employs "discovery gameplay," which means that it provokes you into figuring out the rules of the game. This is unusual, because most games (even puzzle games) give you the rules before asking you to solve the puzzle.

One of the few other games out there that employs discovery gameplay is The Void.

Ye olde Myst kinda made me feel the same way, thrust into a world of strange associations that you have to discover with no apparent guidance.
DrDigBick Dec 20, 2013 @ 9:09am 
thanks people, imma try out kairo now

I enjoyed "Gone Home". It's not very long but you feel like you are part of things.

The Bridge is not bad at all, either.
