by Rainier on April 6, 2021 @ 1:04 p.m. PDT

The Signifier is a first-person tech-noir mystery adventure that blends investigation, experimental psychology, and artificial intelligence.

Undertake a tech-noir mystery adventure like nothing you’ve experienced before. When the vice president of the world's largest tech company turns up dead in her apartment, you’re called in to investigate using advanced experimental technology. Journey into the last memories of the deceased with the Dreamwalker machine, a deep brain scanner that can recreate recorded senses and dive into the unconscious.

Players step into the role of Frederick Russell, an expert in AI and psychology, and the main researcher behind an experimental deep brain scanner called the Dreamwalker. Its controversial technology allows the exploration of the recorded senses and unconscious realms of the mind. He finds himself thrust into a spiral of intrigue when asked to use his creation after the vice president of the world’s biggest tech company turns up dead in her apartment.

In the darkest reaches of the human mind, you’ll interpret the abstract language of unconscious thought on a quest to determine the truth in a subjective world. Explore the real and surreal worlds, become immersed in fringe psychology, solve puzzles, and find the truth.

The Signifier: Director's Cut is coming to PC (Steam) on April 22, 2021, followed by PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S versions later in 2021. And it’s free for all owners of the original game!
