The Signifier is a first-person adventure game in which we try to solve the mystery of the death of the vice president of the largest technology corporation in the world. For this purpose we use a modern device called Dreamwalker, which allows us to learn the secrets of the mind of the victim. The game was developed by the Playmestudio and is its debut project. The publisher of this game is Raw Fury.
The head of the largest technology corporation in the world is found dead in her apartment. The player acts as Frederick Russel, an expert in AI psychology and development, who tries to solve the mystery of a woman's death with the use of an invention called Dreamwalker, which allows to explore memories. The plot of the game touches upon such topics as artificial intelligence and violating the privacy of someone's mind. The game also wonders how real the reality in which we operate on a daily basis is.
In The Signifier, we observe the action from a first person perspective FPP). The gameplay consists in exploring the environment, talking to NPCs, solving puzzles and discovering the plot prepared by the authors. The key role is played by a device called Dreamwalker, which allows us to enter the memories and dreams of another person. During the game we move through three different environments: the real world, objective memories and subjective dreams.
By solving some of the puzzles we get access to new lines of dialogue that can bring us closer to knowing the truth. During the game we also learn about concepts and psychological terms, which we can then use in the further course of the game. It's worth noting that everything we do is somehow related to the main storyline - there is no additional side content in the game
We can only play The Signifier alone. The basis of the gameplay here is a feature campaign.
The Signifier has a nice, three-dimensional graphic design. The models of the characters and the game environment combine a high level of realism (in scenes in which we move in the real world) with crazy, unusual ideas and visions (which we deal with while exploring fragments of the mind).
