Critic Reviews for A Memoir Blue
A Memoir Blue is a short, touching, interactive adventure about a complex mother-daughter relationship. It's a very interesting sensorial experience which translates memory mechanisms into gameplay, even if interaction sometimes feels a bit too driven. Anyway, Miriam story on the memory lane is authentic, mature and compelling.

Ultimately, A Memoir Blue isn’t necessarily going to revolutionize video game storytelling. It is a fairly simple story of mother-daughter reconciliation, after all. However, it tells that story with an extremely thoughtful blend of 3D and 2D visuals that are densely packed with additional meaning. A Memoir Blue is in every sense a finely crafted piece of art, and that’s a pretty good way to start a new game studio.
A Memoir Blue has a beautiful, varied visual style, emotionally resonant music, and a sincere — if not terribly deep — narrative. The changing and mysterious relationship of parents and children is relatable. It’s a wonderful story to experience, told via haunting, surreal images. Where A Memoir Blue collapses is in its arbitrary and often unnecessary game mechanics. I get that the main character is trying to make sense of her puzzle-like memories. Pixel hunting and awkward object manipulation don’t make me feel invested or immersed. I’d argue they work against it. A Memoir Blue could and should have been a touching short animated film.
If we lose our memory, we are left adrift from a foreign world, and games like A Memoir Blue reveal the mental capacity to which we resort the most, and to which we demand the greatest effort, through a videoludic work in which we recover images and scenarios from the past, preserving our experiences and emotions, and elaborating a personal story.
