A sapphic, sci-fi fever dream that finds horror and beauty among the stars, Signalis is dense and alluring to the last.

October 25, 2022 |

Signalis conjures a memorable retro-futuristic vibe with its art design, matched with a story that explores the terrifying extremes of sentient life. But its Resident Evil inspired systems feel overly mechanical and fail to produce tension, draining energy from a potentially chilling scenario.

Signalis is a game that asks you to repeatedly plunge yourself into the abyss and face what meets you there. Those willing to look beyond its occasional nagging pain points and homage-laden surface will find a surprisingly intimate take on cosmic horror, one which beckons the player to consider, again and again and again, the question of what truly makes a person who they are, and just how far are they willing to go to keep a promise to a friend.

Game Info

GAME INFO
Game Description / Storyline:

After her ship crash-landed on a remote, snow-covered planet, the Replika Elster is looking for her missing crew member. In her search she wanders through the ruins of a seemingly abandoned underground labor camp, surreal visions of cosmic horror, and flashbacks to a past that isn’t hers. As the lines between reality and dream blur, Elster has to venture into the depths below the planet’s surface to learn what has happened to her and why – but mysterious encoded radio signals and a Replika with dark intentions are not the only obstacles she has to overcome along the way.
