A musical action-adventure set in the recesses of the human mind... Welcome to the world of Figment. A strange and surreal world; a place filled with our deepest thoughts, urges and memories, populated by the many voices we hear in our heads.

This mind has been quiet and calm for many years. But something has changed. New thoughts have started to emerge - taking the shape of nightmarish creatures who spread fear wherever they go. The only hope is for the grumpy Dusty, the mind's former voice of courage, to get back to his old self and help the mind to face its fears.

Join Dusty and his ever-optimistic friend, Piper, on an adventure through the different sides of the mind, solving puzzles to set things straight, beating back the nightmares and seeking to restore the courage that's been lost.

Another cute little indie romp about mental health.
I don't have too much to say about this one. The art and music is striking at times and the mental health analogies throughout the game can hit close to home. I wish there was a run button.
A decent time.

It's... alright.
The story is engaging, the artstyle is gorgeous, the concept and worldbuilding are fantastic. Music is quite nice as well, if a bit repetitive.
The only real problem is that it's not really fun to play, and that ruins the whole experience. Gameplay is extremely basic, and a large majority of the puzzles are very easy. I felt bored for a good 3/4 of the game. It just sad to see that it's got such a nice concept but then fails at being the very thing it is supposed to be: a fun game to play.
Also, I can't stand Piper. She won't shut up, give you the most obvious pointers to the point that it feels like she is babysitting you, and I found her voice acting atrocious; it feels fake, exaggerated and exhausting.
Get this if you enjoy the concept and if you are forgiving, or to support the devs (game's pretty cheap so why not?).

Banger boss battles, was jamming every time.

This is a very charming game with beautiful visuals, interesting characters and areas filled with details. The voice acting is also very good and there is a bit of singing in a theatrical kind of way. The game is a mix of simple fighting, solving puzzles and collecting 16 membranes. Although the 16 membranes are optional (I think), they explain the main story which is kind of kept vague for the most part, but you get the gist of it by guessing.
The things that I thought could have been better were the following:
-Fighting: it's very simple and feels stiff too. The character is not very athletic and maybe the fighting is like this on purpose to stay true to the character.
-Backtracking: you have to go through areas to reach a specific area. Even after clearing it. I prefer teleportation to collect what I missed.
-Framerate/animation: the way the character moves/animates is very weird and distracting on high FPS. I had to limit the FPS to 60 through Nvidia's Control Panel to make it look smoother. But there are instances where it still doesn't look natural. I'm not sure what it means but this is the only technical and graphical fault about the game.
The game's style is also very unique and original of course. You either love or hate what you see. I rather love it. One of the bosses is a spider. I usually detest spiders but this game made me fall in love with it due to how charming it is.
The game is a good first entry but there is also room for improvement. I enjoyed my 8 hours and am looking forward to getting my hands on Figment 2 the next time it's on sale.

Played (most) of this with my mother and its a real fun time.
A nice mix of action/fighting and puzzles, not too difficult with a good art style and pretty good music numbers too with a story that's satisfying and interesting.
Worth a look.
