What is Figment an amazing little adventure game full with puzzles and a bit of action with enemies to fight. What I didn’t know before playing this and was surprised by is how much singing there is in this game, but not just some singing, but from such an outstanding quality. It felt a bit like a musical! With the description of this game, I could have known this but I didn’t realize how much and how good it would be.
The game starts off a bit weird, it felt like this was a sequel. the characters clearly know each other but you as the player don’t really get introductions. After the first few minutes, I started to look on steam if there wasn’t a game before this that is also part of this series and I even poked the developer if I missed something, but that wasn’t the case. I don’t think you miss out on a backstory, but it is just different from how you normally get introduced to characters in a game.
I would say that Figment is most of all a puzzle adventure game, but you still fight quite a lot. The puzzles are creative and I’m not sure I understood them all, some I have figured out by trial and error. While for others I clearly noticed the hints in the environment around the puzzle.
The achievements for Figment aren’t difficult and most of them you can unlock later on by backtracking to each area. This sounds challenging but since you solved already the puzzles there is a clear path free from obstacles or you have the items close by that are needed. There are 2 missable achievements that both are attached to combat. I would do those in the “spider” area as there they are the easiest. They are missable because if you kill an enemy it is dead forever, so you might run out of groups of enemies together when you still miss those achievements. You can do them earlier on, which is much easier if you have to restart because you missed them, but the spider enemies are just easier if you know this when still have to start that area.
Sadly at this moment (March 2023) one achievement is buggy, the one where you have to kill all the spiders. I believe the developers are still sorting this out as it is a new bug that popped up after a recent update. In the list above I linked to a topic on steam where you can see people reporting the bug, but I hope if it gets fixed that also will be stated in that topic. On page 4 you can also find a save file, I don’t understand why it works but if you use that save file and kill the spiders that are next to the two houses after you picked up a couch just above them, the achievement pops. I also used this opportunity to get one of the two missable achievements, which I indeed missed, as well.
