What is Figment about?
A controller is recommended to play this game.
A musical action-adventure set in the recesses of the human mind... Welcome to the world of Figment. A strange and surreal world; a place filled with our deepest thoughts, urges and memories, populated by the many voices we hear in our heads.
This mind has been quiet and calm for many years. But something has changed. New thoughts have started to emerge - taking the shape of nightmarish creatures who spread fear wherever they go. The only hope is for the grumpy Dusty, the minds former voice of courage, to get back to his old self and help the mind to face its fears.
Join Dusty and his ever-optimistic friend, Piper, on an adventure through the different sides of the mind, solving puzzles to set things straight, beating back the nightmares and seeking to restore the courage thats been lost.
Experience how traditionally hand-painted brushstrokes come to life in a world filled with surreal art, colorful illustrations and charming characters. Experience the unique artstyles of the joyful Freedom Isles, the radiant Clockwork Town and the ominous Pathways.
Music is an integral part of Figment. Explore a rhythmic environment full of trumpet trees, piano houses and singing enemies and discover how your actions influence this musical universe and its dynamic soundtrack.
Take an emotional journey to face universal human fears and help Dusty bring peace to the mind again. Overcome the Nightmares by using their dirty tricks to your advantage.
Figment offers various challenges for all kind of players. Swing your sword skillfully at the enemies, rack your brain to solve puzzles and combine the two in epic musical boss battles.
Figment is not a game for long game sessions or even to play through in one go. The puzzles are too simple for that and the fights are even more boring. But for a relaxing game in between the game is perfect. Then simplicity is even a strength and then comes the great strength of Figment, namely the atmosphere. The game lives primarily from its wonderful charm and the interesting story idea. And they turn a simple, simple game into a great gaming experience. Conclusion: The wrong game for players looking for the challenge (crisp puzzles and/or challenging fights). But perfect if you like to dive into a charming world in between.
