Man do I love this game... till it feels like I am about to throw it! :S
Man, this sucks so bad!
Is ther more poeple then me that get nauseous by playing this?

I don't know what it is!
There are very few games which have made me feel physicaly nauseous by playing. And no one ever as fast as this game!
Which is really a shame, since I love the concept and would like to play it more. But, as it stands - I barley manage 10 min at a time, and it takes half an hour to recover.

Anyone else got this problem with this particular game?
And if, by some miracle, if you know of something that helps/fixes this - please share your experience!

Ex. Is there perchance a FOV setting in some file of the game that could be edited or anything?

You could try windowed mode, or if you know what you're doing, you could play around in the config files some to try and limit the head bobbing as well as change the fps some. It could also be vsync (causes some people headache to have vsync enabled/disabled), which is also located in one of the config files.

The location of the config files is as follows (Win7): "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Antichamber\UDKGame\Config"
Probably the best two files to check are going to be "UDKEngine.ini" and "DefaultEngine.ini"
I cannot stress enough to make a backup of any of these files before you change them, Antichamber is not SteamCloud compatible so it won't fix itself if you mess something up.

I love the game too but it hurts my eyes more than anything. i dont get nauseaus per say. but i can see where you are coming from.

The cause of motion sickness from first-person games, in my experience, is almost always related to a low field of view. My guess is if you can manage to find a way to change that it should alleviate the problem. Unfortunately I don't have the game yet so I can't tell you how, or if it's even possible to change it, but I would lay money on that being the problem.
