Figment was released in 2017 and has since sold over 1 million copies on PC and consoles. Furthermore, the game currently sits at 86% (very positive) on Steam, and 77/100 on Metacritic.
Its first instalment takes you on a surreal journey through a unique universe, complete with music, humour, and a complex storyline. Dusty and his ever-optimistic friend, Piper, lead the adventure through different areas of The Mind, endeavouring to regain lost courage.
Figment takes place in a surreal and peculiar realm of the human mind, inhabited by the multitude of voices, thoughts, urges, and memories that we carry within us. For many years, this mind has been tranquil and serene. However, something has changed, and new thoughts have emerged, taking the form of frightening creatures that spread fear throughout. The only hope for the mind is for Dusty, the former voice of courage, to rekindle his spirit and aid in the battle against these nightmares.
Embark on a journey alongside Dusty and his ever-optimistic companion, Piper, as they traverse through the various aspects of the mind. Through puzzle-solving and combating the nightmares, the duo aims to bring peace back to the mind and restore the courage that has been lost.
In celebration of the sequel’s launch on March 9th, Figment will be available for free on Steam until March 9, 2023, at 10am PT / 6pm GMT / 4am AEST (the next day). If you download the game, you can keep it forever (or for as long as it’s available on Steam digitally).
