Genres: Art, Interactive Story

Memoranda is a game about forgetting and being forgotten! A point and click adventure game with magic realism elements that tells the story of a young lady who gradually realizes she is forgetting her own name. Is she really losing her memory or is there something else that could explain the strange circumstances? The story happens in a quiet little town where a few ordinary and strange characters live together. Including a World War II surviving soldier to an elephant taking shelter in a man’s cottage hoping to become a human. There is one thing all these characters have in common: they are losing something. It could be a name, a husband or even someone’s sanity! The story is inspired by various Haruki Murakami short stories that describe a surreal world full of lonely characters.

Though it has an intriguing premise, Memoranda is held back by its obtuse puzzle design and vague storyline

Memoranda is an enjoyable game that simultaneously benefits from the exploratory nature of the adventure genre whilst being held back by the inevitable repetition that puzzle-solving requires.

Teeth gnashing frustration prevents Memoranda from being the great game it appears to be, despite its wonderful story and puppet-like art style.

Too many of the old adventure game stumbling blocks (inconsistent progression, unclear or obfuscating clues, unmarked dead ends) prevent this homage to Murakami’s short stories ever hitting the stride its aesthetics deserve.
