Anyone know what the pink blocks do?
The pink blocks that are stuck in the wall behind glass and when you look at them they move to a hole and disappear through it. What do they do exactly? I have found some in 'hidden' locations and I don't know what the purpose of them is.

None that we know of as yet.

I have found 12 so far, still nothing. There is 2 discussions about them already, one discussing one cube in particular which nearly no one has found, and the other discussing anything about the cubes.

I chased one on a track around the room with all the picture cubes. Dunno what its purpose was.

I am guessing the pink blocks are nessecary to beat the game. I have explored every single sector of the map and I still cant reach the ending. I only found 2 of those purple cubes, and after I found them, the thing blocking the door leading to the end shrunk slighlty. Still cant seem to beat this game 6 hours in. If anyone knows where some easy to get pink cubes are, I could test this theory.

The cubes are definitely not necessary to beat the game.
However, have a look, 12 have been found so far:

The cubes cannot be needed to complete the game as one is only available during the first puzzle, if you miss it you have to restart to get it... (wouldn't recommend until the true meaning of the cubes are found, I have all 12 known cubes atm.

There are actually 14 purple cubes. One is only possible to get before you have to blue gun, and another is just in a random spot, and isn't accessible except for no-clipping.

You know what, i think i know their purpose.... the entire idea of this game is to ♥♥♥♥ with your head, and if my guess is correct, this conversation right here is proof that the creators of antichamber are sucsessful. They got us to think these "pink blocks" mean something, but they dont, they dont do anything, they mean absolutly nothing... its just there to make us think and think, trying to find out what they mean, all to just sit there and think "Wow, I did all this for nothing..." and if my guess is true, I say to you, creators of antichamber, "Nice try, but not all of your fans will fall for your tricks this time!" *Sinister laugh*

Why don't we call them easter egg achievements? The game doesn't have real achievements, but that doesn't prevent you from bragging you found the cubes.

This is sorta necropost, but, what the hey, no rules on this forum!

Straight from the wiki:

"Fifteen pink cubes have been discovered so far. These fifteen do not appear to be linked to one another as they can be done in any order except for one of them which has to be obtained the very first time you enter the puzzle's room. These cubes do not appear to have any affect on any other area. Of the 15, only 13 are obtainable through regular gameplay, and two of the 15 are in noclip areas, where you need to be able to walk through walls. These last two are to be added into a new area of the map in a future update."

I'm pretty sure the pink cubes currently do nothing. I beat the game and after there was still lots left so I think they're not nessesary to beat it.

This is true. Source: I am an admin on the Antichamber wiki and I wrote this bit about the pink cubes. (I wrote most of the Antichamber wiki)
