The Signifier: Director's Cut

Entrant 2021



The Signifier pushes players to question the connection between reality and perception. This tech-noir thriller thrusts players into the role of Frederick Russell, an experimental psychologist and creator of a brain scanner and virtualization system called the Dreamwalker. He and his machine are called to quietly investigate when a prominent tech executive turns up dead under suspicious circumstances. The ensuing journey into the surreal mindscapes and memories of the deceased descends into intrigue, repressed emotions, and blurred lines between the real world and that of the subjective mind.
