Stage 1 – Beat the game while obtaining all the collectibles.


Welcome to the Superliminal guide. A tricky puzzler but a fantastic game! There are no missables besides the speed runs as there is a chapter select which even lists which chapter has what kind of collectibles and if you’re missing any in that level. Superliminal also auto-saves the collectible as soon as you interact with it so when combing through a level for what you missed you’ll notice what you’ve already obtained. The 4-6 Hour window to platinum is also if you know the game very well and understand everything fluently alongside nailing that speedrun. Expect more if you struggle with puzzles or practice the speedrun a lot (Which you will)!

Stage 2 – Miscellaneous Trophies


Superliminal makes use of locking bonus features behind obtaining all collectible sections as a pre-requisite. Now that you’ve obtained all the collectibles you’ll have access to them all. At the main menu, scroll down to the option below “Credits” it looks like the exit sign symbol, click it to acess the warehouse area. Go through the doors to the left and pick up the golden chess piece in the middle for Polite Recognition.

Load up any level with an office at the beginning of the level. The computer screen on the desk will have a picture of a chess board. Interact with the screen to be brought to a new area. You’ll need to make 2 moves to complete the puzzle here; move the pawn away from the king and place the rook where the pawn was. You could also imitate the image below for Kasparov:

Winning Chess Move

The final miscellaneous trophy does have specific ways of unlocking but we’ll go for the neutral easy method. Load up any chapter and pick up an object, now don’t touch anything. Put the controller down and wait a few minutes until Vaguely Activated Achievement pops.

Stage 3 – Speed Run


The final 2 trophies before the platinum are what makes this platinum so difficult. You’ll need to be master of your element to be able to complete this game in under 30 minutes! There isn’t much to say in ways of aiding besides tell you to know the levels and puzzles inside out, all the feasible shortcuts, to not waste any time, etc. Luckily we have reached out to a streamer by the name of Clockwork_D0rk who has recorded their PS4 run of Superliminal under 30 minutes and graciously allowed us to use their footage. Make sure to check their video out, content, and updates to their stuff! (As they have plans for a voice-over with tips to the Superliminal Speedrun)
