Good detectives will tell you that evidence isn’t everything. Understanding the tangled emotions behind a crime is vital to solving it, and tech-noir mystery game The Signifier looks to explore that idea vividly, blending reality, memories, and dream spaces to create a string of unique cases to crack.

You play as Frederick Russell, a psychology expert and AI researcher who has built an experimental deep brain scanner called the Dreamwalker that lets you explore the realms of a person’s mind after they have passed. Rifling through a person’s private thoughts is more than a little invasive, and so Frederick’s technology is, understandably, a bit controversial. However, the police force has turned a blind eye, letting him continue his research in exchange for helping them out with their cases – allowing you to slip into the role of brain detective.
