Figment: Journey Into the Mind is the latest game from Bedtime Digital Games, a company with a love for the surreal and dream-like settings. Figment is no different and has puzzles designed around the concept of the left and right sides of the brain.
It's set in a human mind, where there's been a sense of calm for the longest time. This changes one day when something causes the mind to have nightmares that manifest themselves as creatures in the world. This is where the protagonist Dusty and his bird friend Piper come in.
Dusty used to be the mind's voice for courage but was surplus to requirements whilst nothing bad was happening. Now he needs to return to being that voice to help the mind conquer these new fears. He'll do this, in part, by solving a plethora of puzzles that will change in style depending on where you are.
In the Freedom Isles, the puzzles all represent the right side of the brain. This means you'll more easily find the solutions if you can think more creatively. Meanwhile, Clockwork Town has puzzles that are as mechanical as the name might suggest. Logic and reasoning will be your friend here as it represents the left side of the mind.
Alongside that, you'll also have to fight the creatures the mind has dreamed into existence. This means dodging and melee attacks are also part of Dusty's skill set. If that sounds like something you'd prefer to have a controller for then you'll be able to do as Figment will support MFI, Xbox One and PS4 controllers on launch.
If you fancy some surreal puzzle-solving action, Figment: Journey Into the Mind is available now over on the App Store for $4.99. However, if you're not entirely sure it's for you, you can try out the first two chapters for free.
