Familiar public signs spring to life in Skookum Arts‘s perspective-bending puzzler, The Pedestrian. After six years of development and a successful Kickstarter campaign, The Pedestrian enjoyed a full launch on January 29 this year. The concept is deceptively simple: traverse a vibrant city world through public signs. Why you’re locked into these signs and where your journey is headed is a mystery only vaguely hinted at in the game’s description. The Pedestrian sums up its gameplay with the following:
“The Pedestrian is a 2.5D side scrolling puzzle platformer. You are The Pedestrian! Enter into a dynamic 3D world with stunning graphics and challenging puzzles.”
Rearrange public signs flush against bright backdrops to move from one stage to the next. Platform your way across these challenges to the sounds of cheerful, whimsical tunes. What secrets lurk under The Pedestrian‘s surface, carefully crafted with complex puzzles and memorable animations? It’s up to you to find out. The Pedestrian is out now for PC, looking to test players’ powers of observation and patience.
