Description

The Butterfly Sign

is a first person detective story putting players in shoes of the lone survivor and the only witness to a disastrous incident. The protagonist’s destiny depends on his memories. That is why he dares to take a desperate measure. He takes an experimental drug "Rammex" which immerses him in the depths of his mind and precisely restores all the events occurred to him. In his memories, the protagonist will discover the ones responsible for the disaster, collecting clues bit by bit…

Explore Memority hospital and its premises, learn its secrets and restore the chain of events that took place here. Solve the puzzles and murders committed at Memority. Find clues, compare the facts and avoid tricky obstacles in your way. Penetrate into the new, previously inaccessible memories. Make conclusions and choose the correct route, because all your decisions affect the outcome of the game and influence the fact whether you can get to the truth. Thuth that was lost in your own mind…

- Excellent graphics achieved with Unreal Engine 4 – the most advanced game engine in the world. We used photogrammetry technology and high-resolution textures to create the world of The Butterfly Sign as beautiful as possible.- Non-linear dialogues and the ability to make choices which will affect the course of the story and the ending. The progress of the dialogue always depends on your location. And you always have the opportunity to make choices, sometimes insignificant, sometimes important for the further story.- Brainstorm your head with investigation of murders, puzzles and mysteries. The Butterfly Sign develops the player’s skills of criminology and deduction. For those players who prefer the story, there is always the easiest difficulty level, but if you are really up to the true detective, you have a variety of other levels, including the hardest one causing the game restart after a single death.- In The Butterfly Sign, the events take place in the past and in the present simultaneously.- The atmospheric sound. We have paid a great attention to sound effects in The Butterfly Sign. Every lamp, every water drop falling from the ceiling has its own sound. Each room boasts of its own unique ambience corresponding to its style and mood.

The action takes place in present. The protagonist, Jack, was found not far from Memority hospital, where an experimental drug called Rammex had been developed. It was created to help patients recover their memories. But the hospital was attacked. The drug was stolen, and all the staff and patients were killed. Explosion and conflagration destroyed a part of the hospital. And Jack was the only survivor. As a result of a strong explosion, Jack lost some of his memory, he remembers only small fragments of what have happened.

Jack is helped by Dr. Romanov – the chief scientist of Memority hospital and the mastermind behind the drug. During the whole game, the protagonist will be staying in a hospital bed, and all the gameplay will occur in his memories restored with Rammex. The game world is divided into two parts: the real world, where the hero is confined to a hospital bed, and the world of his memories, where he will spend most of his time.

The Butterfly Sign also has non-linear dialogues, and all your decisions will affect the outcome of the story at the very end.Necessary EvilThe Butterfly Sign is divided into three chapters. In the first chapter, Jack, walking through the alley of his own memory, becomes the eyes and ears of Dr. Romanov. The drug "Rammex" helps him do it. The main character tries to recover the fragments of his memory in order to find the ones responsible for the attack on Memority. Hovewer, the further he goes, the more he realizes that everything that happened was the necessary evil...Human ErrorMemority had been developing "Rammex" to help sick patients recover their lost memory. According to the Memority scientists, "Rammex" was able to quickly restore human nerve cells. It would have been a real revolution in medicine, a cure for many illnesses. But turning over the pages of his own mind and investigating the incident, Jack begins to realize how unreal his world is, and what a beautiful lie all this is...Wreck of my WarshipIn the end, to find the one responsible for the attack on Memority, Jack has to collect all the pieces of his memory together. He goes to the dam, where he last saw the mercenaries, but instead finds only one person who jumps down from the dam trying to commit suicide. Realizing that he has already been there, and the answer is in his head, Jack follows the self-murderer and jumps, because it’s the only chance to remember ...

Reviews about the game

The Butterfly Sign31.03.2017

Rarely does one feel cheated out of $3 when it comes to buying a game (which was on an almost 50% discount), but Butterfly Sign was, in my opinion, not even worth the time I invested, much less the money. The glaring problems are everywhere: bugs everywhere, even in the graphics settings menu, where most of the independent settings can be adjusted, but never actually are applied - automatically reverting afterwards. The optimization of the game is terrible - providing choppy movement and awful framerates, even on a very high-end machine with graphics settings reduced into the potato range. The controls are clunky and there is no option to reassign buttons - and if you choose to play with a controller, you'll find that text menus and puzzles still require you to put down the controller and use the mouse and keyboard. The game itself is also very... limited and amateur: weak premise, poor dialog, puzzles that arent' "puzzling" and is way too linear and constrained in a setting that seems to imply you should wander and "detect"(cuz you are a detective). The cut scenes are very slow to load and persistently tear the player from the game, interrupt the moment, load the player into a new environment/moment and convolute the story. To put a nail in the coffin, the whole of "chapter 1" lasts about 80 minutes... 40 minutes of which is spent wandering at a snail's pace down the path shown in fast motion the intro video on Steam. And just as you feel like something of a story is taking shape... the chapter/game is over. I literally felt absolutely dumped off and like I'd wasted time I'll never recover. There is no chance I'll bother with any further chapters of this.

I'm glad to see very fast reaction of the developers. Someone says we need a skip button, and it was immediately added. Someone says about mistakes in German localization, and it took just a few moments to fix. A lot of gamemakers should learn how to do this. I would buy this game even for 50$, just to support the devs. Great work! Respect!

The Butterfly Sign is pobably one of the most atmospheric and immersive videogames in whitch i played this year. You have to piece together events from the past to determine what has happened. The atmosphere, the exploration, the mystery, it all made for a really great adventure. You navigate between very beautifully rendered scenes looking for clues, insightful information. All in all, a very well designed, melancholy adventure, well worth my time! I don't say this about games often, but I look forward to playing continue this one!

When I saw the game, I assumed that this is a typical horror with elements of detective. But I don`t regret the money and took a chance. I`m very glad I did it, because this game is unusual. Difficult tasks, puzzles...It is the first game, that I`ve seen, with such gameplay structure.

Instead of giving this game a positive review, I'm giving it a mixed one. As a fan of games of the genre I found it to be intriguing and atmospheric. For $5 it's pretty good value for money too, taking around and hour to beat with some optional achievements to go back for. On the other hand the game takes up a whopping 19GB of storage and for a game that takes about an hour to complete, that is pretty baffling and suggests to me the developers didn't know how to zip their game up properly. Another aspect that the game fails at, in my opinion, is story telling. It tells a forgetable yet convoluted plot, that I'm sure will be developed later in the subsequent episodes/chapters. The ending comes abruptly out of no where and left me scratching my head. In terms of gameplay, aside from walking around and exploring, you have to piece together events from the past to determine what has happened, most of this consists of multiple choice questions which was pretty boring and tedious for the most part. The other main gameplay element were circuit board puzzles, their might have been 2 in total, where you align some diodes to make the current flow from A to B. All in all the game has potential and I'm interested to see how the further chapters build on the foundation of the original entry, but if any of the things I mention put you off, you might want to wait until it drops in price. The developers have said they'll reduce the price of Chapter 1 when Chapter 2 drops later this month. If these problems don't bother you too much and you can spare $5, then go ahead and check it out.
