Signalis is a creepy sci-fi survival horror game inspired by classic games like Silent Hill and Resident Evil. You play as Elster, an android searching for a lost partner in a dystopian future controlled by a totalitarian regime. With limited resources, you'll explore derelict spaceships and face nightmarish creatures while uncovering a haunting tale of identity, memory, and the terror of the unknown. The game's tense atmosphere, rewarding puzzles, and unsettling music will leave you on the edge of your seat.


What we like:
  • Reminiscent controls of classic Resident Evil games
  • Rewarding puzzles that require thoughtful exploration
  • Crisp weapon effects that could rival AAA games
  • Unsettling music that elevates the anxiety during combat
  • Consistent art direction that shines through every aspect of the game.
What could be improved:
  • Limited inventory space
  • Graphics are not the best and similar to PlayStation 1 graphics
  • Short gameplay for most players, unless aiming for 100% completion
  • Distracting and confusing story that might require another playthrough
