THE SIGNIFIER: Investigate the Death of a Big Tech Vice President in this Horror Game
The Signifier is an indie horror, simulation and adventure game in first person produced by Playmestudio, and published by Raw Fury on October 15, 2020, and with a Director's Cut version (the one you are seeing in the gameplay) with a demo released on April 15th this year. In the game, you control Frederic Russell, an expert in AI and psychology, and one of the researchers behind the Dreamwalker project, a controversial technology that allows you to enter simulations of human mind records apparently transferred to HDs. In one of these cases, Frederick investigates the death of a vice president of one of the largest technology companies in the world and finds himself enveloped in a spiral of frightening intrigues.
The "Director's Cut" version of The Signifier features excellent graphics, simple and intuitive gameplay and a very good soundtrack that matches the sober and technological atmosphere present here. You can move between three dimensions: the real one, where you dialogue with people and observe places and objects to extract information, that of objective memories and that of subjective dreams, where you find fragments of memories and place them in certain places between these two dimensions to find out more about the case that occurred.
Although it is a horror game, forget the notorious "jump scares": here, the horror is built based on the atmosphere and tension created by the surreal dimensions (objective and subjective), combined with its soundtrack. The Director's Cut version is scheduled to be released on April 22 for both PC and PS4, PS5, Xbox One and XBox Series.
