The Signal From Tölva

A first-person action game with open world, set in a science fiction reality. The Signal From Tölva was developed by the independent developer Big Robot studio, the creators of the humorous Sir, You Are Being Hunted. This time, the player assumes the role of a hacker and takes control of robots that decided to explore an alien planet on their own. In this way, we have to investigate the source of a mysterious signal emitted from beneath the planet’s surface. While conducting the search in the vast, open world, we will often have to clash with hostile factions with the use of a rich arsenal of futuristic weapons and gadgets, including a plasma shield, shockwaves, and so on. Should the robot we control be destroyed, we can hack into another one’s computer and continue playing. Graphics-wise, The Signal From Tölva presents a significantly higher quality than Sir, You Are Being Hunted. The game world combines an original comic style with landscapes characteristic of the science fiction genre.

The Signal From Tölva for PC / Windows is a science fiction first-person action game with open world. The production was developed by Big Robot, an independent studio known for the humorous Sir, You Are Being Hunted that received a mixed reception.

Plot

In the world of The Signal From Tölva, artificial intelligence decided to abandon the humanity and being exploring the galaxy on its own. The protagonist participates in the events kind of indirectly since he isn’t physically present on the eponymous planet of Tölva but hacks robots that are instead. Once one machine is destroyed, we simply take control over another one. The hero’s task is to investigate a signal that comes somewhere from beneath the planet’s surface and hides a dark secret. The developers admitted that they used well-known science fiction formulas while designing the game.

Mechanics

Contrary to Sir, You Are Being Hunted, in The Signal From Tölva, we do not shy away from fights. We face hostile robot factions that struggle for territory. What’s interesting, such battles can take place even without our active participation. The developers gave a rich arsenal of futuristic weapons at our disposal as well as the possibility of using a plasma shield, shockwaves, and assuming control over other robots.

Technical aspects

Graphics-wise, the game presents a much higher quality level than Sir, You Are Being Hunted. It is partially due to the cooperation between Big Robot and Ian McQue, an artists that previously worked with Rockstar Games on such hits as Grand Theft Auto V and Max Payne 3. Thanks to him, The Signal From Tölva for PC / Windows combines an interesting visual style with landscapes characteristic of the science fiction genre: ruins of alien civilizations, crashed spaceships, and abandoned buildings. This time, the developers abandoned procedural environment generation but the map is still four times bigger than that of Sir, You Are Being Hunted.
