Super Rare Games, in partnership with Pillow Castle, today revealed plans for a physical release of Superliminal. The first-person puzzle game will have three boxed versions.

The first one is the simplest, as it’s the standard edition. Buyers will get all the current content on its cart, a full-color manual, interior artwork, an exclusive sticker, and trading cards. 3,000 units will be made.

Next up is the Steelbook Edition, limited to 750 units. Extras include a postcard and slipcover.

Last but not least is the Collector’s Edition. Each copy includes a 32-page hardback miniature museum guidebook, a Superliminal pawn chess piece, 3 apple dice, and an optical illusion fridge magnet, all in a collector’s edition box with a lenticular lid.

Here’s some information about Superliminal:

A mind-bending first-person puzzler that challenges you to change your perspective and think outside the box. One night you find yourself falling asleep with the TV on at 3AM. All you can recall is catching a glimpse of the commercial for Dr. Pierce’s Somnasculpt dream therapy program. Unbeknown to you, upon opening your eyes you’ve already entered this experimental program. Welcome to Superliminal!

Perception is reality – Explore a dream world where everything is exactly as it seems. Tread carefully as the world slowly unravels around you and subverts your expectations. What you see isn’t always precisely what you get.

Man vs Machine – In this fully-voiced adventure, Dr Glenn Pierce is doing his questionable best to guide you home and out of the dreamscape. His artificial intelligence assistant, however, is having trouble understanding exactly how you’re here at all and has other plans for you.

Developer commentary – The developers have added extensive developer commentary throughout the game, so you can learn the secrets and history behind the game’s development.

Challenge mode – The overwhelming response from the speedrunning community to Superliminal inspired the devs to add a new Challenge Mode, which will score you per level on metrics such as time to finish, grabs, and jumps.

All physical editions of Superliminal will go on sale on May 5 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM in the UK / 7 PM in Europe. Super Rare Games will have everything here.
