This game is like nothing we have ever seen before.
Rememoried is set in a virtual world, where memories become dreams, and dreams become reality. Where forgetting the past is the way to look into future. Nothing you see is real – or so you think. Falling asleep opens a gate to world between worlds. A world full of forgotten memories, waiting to be remembered.
If you haven’t figured out already, this game is a bit different, and very, very weird. It likes to play tricks with your mind, and that’s why I bloody love it.
The world behind you is changing, and every time you look back, it appears to be different. As if that’s not confusing enough, the levels are designed in a way to confuse even more. Random objects, shapes and images are everywhere, helping to shape a dark yet very beautiful world full of mysteries.
Each level contains a unique puzzle for the player to solve in order to advance to the next one. It’s obvious why they created this mechanic, since it makes you try harder and put more effort into getting through level, but in practice it’s highly frustrating as it artificially delays making progress.
At the beginning of each level a hint helps you get an idea what kind of puzzle awaits you and what to look for. Not paying attention can have you stuck in the very first level for 10 minutes – normally easily solved in less than 30 seconds.
The graphics are okay – because the world is so dark, you can’t take a closer look at the objects, and other are just random shapes, but the theme of the game is very nice and sometimes quite impressive.
Sound is also very nice. Very peaceful music helps in creating the game’s atmosphere and it’s sometimes even a key to solving a puzzle.
The only problem really present in this game is the lack of information provided. It does not explain mechanics and controls very well. There is no tutorial. You are on your own to figure it out.
The game is a real masterpiece. Well designed levels, interesting new mechanics and challenging puzzles. It’s a game I just couldn’t stop playing, because I needed to know what awaits me in the next level.
I would strongly recommend the game to anyone, who is not afraid to try and play something new and different. If you’re brave enough to go on a challenging journey, traveling through forgotten dreams and memories which makes you question reality and your own existence, this is the game for you.
