The Iterative Collective | Singapore - August 18th, 2022 - Indie studio Reckoner Industries and publisher The Iterative Collective are releasing a new free DLC for synthesizer-inspired puzzle/simulation game The Signal State: Sandbox Mode where you can tinker with synth modules to your heart’s content.

The Signal State is available on Steam and GOG for Windows and Mac!  

Synth enthusiasts will now be able to use the modules from the game, designed by Papernoise, to create their own music outside of the limitations of logic puzzles. Let your imagination run wild and generate your own beats in an unrivaled digital simulation of analogue sound. Sandbox Mode is perfect for experienced synth users to experiment with new ideas and also is an opportunity for rookie tinkerers to figure out the basics.
