Description

READ IT. PLAY IT. LIVE THE MYSTERY.

unmemory lives at the intersection of literature and game. You need to read to overcome challenging puzzles and move forward in a thriller story where image, sound and interactive functions are carefully interwoven into the narrative.

The result is an experience that tests your ability to solve a mystery, but above all that makes you feel inside the story.

UNMEMORY IS A TEXT DRIVEN MYSTERY THAT MIXES PUZZLES AND READING TO IMMERSE YOU IN A NOIR THRILLER.

unmemory tells the story of a person who is tracking down the man who murdered his girlfriend, a member of a band of lady thieves. The difficulty, however, of locating the murderer is compounded by the fact that he suffers from a rare, untreatable form of memory loss. Using notes, pictures and recorded messages he will have to solve the mystery and maybe, just maybe, discover an uncomfortable truth in this thriller story set in the 90s about a girl gang and a broken mind.


MAIN FEATURES

- Text is the gameplay: unmemory innovates mixing interactive reading, story and puzzle mechanics in 8 chapters and 8 hours of gameplay.

- High end aesthetics: Everything on unmemory has been carefully crafted, from the editorial design to the sophisticated photographs or the nostalgic devices curation.

- An immersive storytelling format: unmemory lives at the intersection of games and literature and broadens the view of what games (and books) could be.

Fantastic Updated Interactive Fiction

I am a diehard fan of interactive fiction, and love the rare occasions when someone adapts it to touchscreen. It is disappointing how much of what’s out there is just choose-your-own-adventure, without the puzzles that make great IF so addicting. This game hits the sweet spot of all the good things about IF, nicely blended with graphics, a good story, and some thoughtful puzzles done well, without overdoing the graphics and keeping it a text-based game, but without the pesky typing that turns so many people off of IF.
I really wish the developers would stay on this track. I’ve been hoping that someone would adapt the truly great IF games (Counterfeit Monkey, Anchorhead, etc) for touchscreen- maybe it’s these guys.
I’m knocking off a star because of one truly badly clued puzzle- opening the music box. Almost every step of clueing to open it was tenuous or plain nonsensical. Many people will either give up or resort to a walkthrough unless you re-clue many of the steps for solving that puzzle. Every other puzzle was well-designed, but that one was SO bad that it really hurt the game.
Thanks so much for this really absorbing experience. Keep it up!

PLEASE keep making games

Those of us who want to play an actual game with an engaging story are very jaded with the state of mobile gaming. All the money is in freemium games, for all the wrong reasons. People are dumping thousands of dollars into the pockets of freemium developers only so that they can get a little farther in a race to nowhere.

Unmemory is phenomenal. I was engaged from the beginning, and I felt very proud every time I managed to decode a debaser. The references to The Pixies, and old
school action movies stole my heart as well.

I sincerely hope to be playing your games for
years to come. Thank you for all your hard work.

Bit too short

Expected a bit more game play, each chapter of 8, requires a couple of minor puzzles to solve the big one that gets you to the next chapter.

Interface could use touch a bit more, example early in the game you need to use a phone, which you should just be able to do on its key pad, not pan through each button and then click when you want it.

Ending is somewhat disappointing.

All in all I am happy with my purchase, and look forward to another story line.
