The Pedestrian is a 2.5D puzzle platformer that takes "puzzle platforming" literally. You play as The Pedestrian (aka the male bathroom symbol) who works in a restroom sign standing beside his Beloved (the female symbol). When she disappears, you must escape your day job and embark on a perilous journey where you progress by piecing the "sign world" back together in search of the one you love.

While the concept of this game is overall stronger than its execution, I still enjoyed my time playing it. The world-building in terms of how the puzzles are physically laid out is extremely creative, although i do wish they had done more with the sign theme, as almost every puzzle aspect throughout is not really connected to said theme. That being said, the puzzles that are presented are fresh and (mostly) well executed. Where this game really had me excited was the last mission, where the game style completely shifts from a classic 2d platform puzzler to a first person, almost multi-dimensional puzzler that I very much did not expect but loved to see. The story here is not very focused on, but the overall journey your character makes is satisfying, as were all the hard puzzles that took me a decent amount of time to get through.
