Memoir En Code: Reissue
Developer: Kalopsia Games
Genre: Interactive Story
Divided into different interactive tracks, the game leads the player through the exploration of very personal moments, from the struggle of keeping together a long-distance relationship to the exploration of childhood memories.
Memoir En Code: Reissue was designed, developed and produced by only one person in the attempt to explore autobiography in games.
Memoir En Code: Reissue - Release Trailer
The complex nature of videogame creation usually precludes exclusive compositions. When allowed, however, you're likely to find a piece of the designer's soul buried in the experience. Memoir En Code: Reissue embodies this sentiment with its delicate recreation of tense and peaceful moments of its author's life. It's funny, painful, relatable and, unfortunately, a little heartbreaking.
Memoir En Code: Reissue fails both as a game and an interactive story, but that's not really a problem, because it never wanted to be any of these two things. Memoir En Code: Reissue is just an "autobiographical game album, designed to be experienced similarly to a music album" …and it fails even at that.
