Figment tackles a potentially emotional subject, but does so without depressing the player. Quite the opposite. Its gameplay and writing come together in such a charming and musical way, you'll find yourself smiling throughout.

I thoroughly enjoyed the five hours or so I spent playing Figment. I never once felt bored or that it overstayed its welcome, to me it was the perfect length. It’s a charming adventure with very satisfying and creative puzzles complimented by an attractive art style. It does a fantastic job of exploring the human mind’s inner demons and balancing the heavy subject matter with light-hearted dialogue and musical moments. Minor combat and language issues aside, I would whole-heartedly recommend Figment to all who wish to take a journey into the mind.

In the end I see Figment being the sort of game that may vary wildly in how people feel about it. If you’re in tune with its themes and embrace everything it has to offer it’s really a beautiful and brilliant title, daringly doing everything its own unique way. If some of the elements just don’t pull you in it may play out very differently though. On the strength of its creativity and earnestness I happen to be a big fan and I’d encourage everyone to at least give it a look, it’s a pretty unique experience on the Switch.

Exploring is a real joy thanks to the high-quality, artistic presentation that's shown off here. The recesses of the hand-drawn mind are bright and richly colored. Figment displays a whimsical imagination that demonstrates some truly charming attention to detail.

Figment is a very attractive, fun game that tackles some serious issues. It however tackles these issues in a very light-hearted manner and I appreciated that. It's perhaps a bit easy and simple but it's fun, bright and colourful. It will not take up much of your time but you may just take something away from it about fighting your own personal nightmares.

Figment is a clever, fun, charming, and great looking adventure on Nintendo Switch that you should definitely play. The game might be a tad linear, but that only means you won't be taking on any unnecessary side-quests that could distract you from the story and your main objective: saving this mind from the nightmares. The game's hand-drawn look, the rhythmic sounds that will complement the action and welcome you to each new area you visit, and the funny songs that are showcased during boss fights will keep you coming back for more until you complete this 6-8 hour journey.
