Elster, a technical replica, wakes up alone on a spaceship that has crashed on a remote, snow-covered planet. The pilot, Ariane Yang, is nowhere to be seen. In order to keep the promise he made to her, Elster sets out to search for Yang. After going through a huge and eerie hole in the ground, he finds an abandoned building that appears to be a government re-education center. The horrors of the past that haunt the facility begin to evoke flashbacks and hallucinations in Elster, and a simple rescue mission is transformed into something much more.
Don’t Forget Our Promise.
For a development team heavily influenced by survival horror classics, SIGNALIS is a love letter to those classics. The core elements of these masterpieces are present: a stirring atmosphere, a multi-layered storyline, and many puzzles for the player to solve, such as deciphering codes, adjusting radio signals, and synthesizing items.
Combat is the last resort in this title, and players will need to make wise decisions about whether or not to fight, given the limited means of attack and powerful enemies.
