Figment is Coming True
You may or may not be aware of Figment. If you like your games to stand out from the crowd visually then you will soon be very aware of it. Designed by Bedtime Digital Games it brings together music, puzzles and nightmares to create something that looks gorgeous.
The Developers Say
“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 that’s been lost. 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 mind’s former voice of courage, to get back to his old self and help the mind to face its fears.”
Why You Want it
The hand-drawn art style creates a beautiful world to explore. It’s hard not to be interested when you look at the trailer and the screenshots. The combination of battling and puzzles opens this game up to the widest possible audience. And while there’s a central theme of nightmares the game looks like a pleasant dream. Figment has a full musical score and the exploration you are doing will define what music you hear.
While we do have any pricing information yet we do now know the release window will be Summer 2017. It is confirmed for PC but also “major consoles”. My guess is this means PS4 and X1 but you never know if a Switch version may appear too.
