A woman alone in a house. A mystery and a love story. Explore the present to uncover the past, in a short story of love and loss and a life well-lived. A narrative exploration that examines a world where memories are constantly fading and jumbled. A game about dementia and what happens when you can't hold onto the things you've done or the people you've loved. “Is this the right place?...What did I come out here for?” A plaintive theme on the piano. A tattered 2-year-old calendar. The taste of stale air. A woman is in her house, alone, and her mind holds a mystery... You are Sunita - a woman living with early onset dementia. As you wander from room to room, you discover mysterious objects, each holding a fleeting, fragmented memory. Examine faded postcards, scribbled notes, photographs, and more to uncover Sunita’s past, piece together her life-story, and understand her present. Before I Forget is a story-rich, first-person exploration game from 3-Fold Games. Delicate, moving, and atmospheric, it examines the emotional impact of dementia. Short & Sweet: Before I Forget is a short narrative gem from 3-Fold Games. With an average playtime of 1 hour, it’s designed to be experienced in one sitting. Story Rich: Sunita’s house is a treasure-trove of faded memories. The game-world of Before I Forget is expressive, detailed, and rich with backstory, taking you on a profound emotional journey. Vocal Talent: Featuring a vivid cast of voice actors, breathing life into Sunita and her memories. (Including Anjali Kunapaneni & Bushra Laskar) Original Soundtrack: Elegant piano melodies guide you through Sunita's internal and external worlds, with an all-original score from composer, Dave Tucker. Musical refrains that search and wind like an old memory. “We wanted to have some aspects that indicated Sunita’s Indian heritage apart from her name, and I actually did this piece of art in a little bit of software that came on my Galaxy phone, [...] so this is my homage, my paltry homage - to a really fantastic Indian - female Indian - painter [...] called Amrita Sher-Gil.” Before I Forget comes with a free Developers’ Commentary, which you can activate from the game’s loading screen. As you explore Sunita’s house, listen to thought-provoking interviews with the game devs as they analyse their creative processes, reveal secrets, and much more. 3-Fold Games are a small but mighty micro-studio from game developers Claire Morwood & Chella Ramanan. Dedicated to telling diverse stories from underrepresented perspectives, the creative duo make it their mission to create games which give voice to individuals/groups who are often excluded from game narratives.

Mystery and melancholy combine in this affecting exploration game in which you navigate through a life unravelling

While it isn’t perfect in execution, it is doing a lot with a little and carries more weight than one would expect from first glance. It is cathartic, moving, hopeful, witty, and affecting all wrapped up in a relatively short experience. It is a game I have no problem recommending, and one I won’t soon forget.

Although very short, Before I Forget's emotional highs and lows are enough to make any player care for Sunita, and feel the plight of those who suffer like her.
