Is there any point? Or any story? or anything good that happens at the end?
This might seem a bit trollish title, but basically I'm just wondering if I should stop playing this. I'm not enjoying it and the puzzles dont make any sense. Seems to me that the developers must have at some time revealed how to solve them, because their solutions cannot be worked out (like when you have to do completely random things to solve rooms).

So can someone confirm if there does turn out to be any point to the game, or any reward for completing it?

Also if anyone can identify a good and COMPLETE walkthrough please share it. By "COMPLETE" i mean one that tells you exactly what needs to be done and doesnt assume you know how to do the bits it misses out.

I have recorded a 100% (completely everything including bugs, glitches, speedrun routes, etc. etc. all explained. I'm the head of the speedrunning community for Antichamber, over on http://reddit.com/r/antichamber

There is a "storyline" near the endgame, it's not explained, and it's more up for your own interpretation as to what actually happens.

I do not suggest looking up a walkthrough, since it spoils the entire game (as it's all about the puzzles).

Your statement about the solutions to the puzzles being "completely random" is very very wrong. The game uses certain puzzles to "teach" you new mechanics that you have to apply in other puzzles, none of them are "random solutions", it all makes sense if you learn the mechanics it is trying to teach you.

If you would like to see the walkthrough I made, it's here: http://www.twitch.tv/cali292292/c/2258064
Be warned though, major spoilers. It contains tutorials for every puzzle, and explains game mechanics, bugs, glitches, speedrun routes, etc. etc.... *everything*.

Thanks I'll give that a look! I'd prefer not to cheat but the game seems to want me to. And it isnt really teaching me anything. I'd still prefer useful hints over all out solutions. The wall pictures are just random statements (that probably came off motivational posters) which may-or-may-not be related to the puzzle you are trying to solve, but the only way you ever really find out is after you've solved the puzzle.

Is there any chance you can/could put the times of each puzzle in the video description? I dont have a very fast connection so cant really skip through it all to find the puzzle(s) that are currently impossible. As its a phone I use for my internet its also got usage restrictions!

I'm not sure you can even play Twitch VODS on a phone. It would take me a long time to list out each puzzle time in the description, especially since I sometimes do two puzzles at once (because of how long I know a "100% explained" video would be)

This game doesn't hold your hand. Just don't cheat, if you give it time you'll figure it all out. Observe and test, and enjoy.

Whats the point in playing if you don't play it?

Well, if your goal is to get to the end, then I don't think you are playing this game correctly! It's all about the experiance!
