The Signifier is almost an essential experience for anybody looking for a sophisticated and complex meditation on the effects of technological progress on the nature of humanity but as a game it doesn't quite hang together. Even more frustrating is the fact that its short running time means that it ends just as it's starting to find its feet. As a result it's a title that I am really glad that I have played but can't fully commit to recommending it.
The Signifier is an ambitious game that is also aware of its limits. Unfortunately, that is not enough to elevate it among the greats. It offers a great, alienating and at times disturbing atmosphere, but its strongest suit is tackling issues that force the player out of his comfort zone. Unfortunately, mechanics are not as strong as the atmosphere, which makes the short duration (about six hours) a good choice. The ending is a bit fuzzy, however – and probably a setup for a sequel.

The Signifier have a quite an original concept, but falls short to hold any momentum with repetative sections and and a mess of hastily forgotten plot points. If only the dev team had a bigger budget, then maybe this game could become something entirely else.
