UNMEMORY

A GAME YOU CAN READ. A BOOK YOU CAN PLAY.

unmemory is a crafted combination of game and narrative. You need to read to overcome the challenges and move forward in a thriller story about a girl gang and a broken mind, where image, sound, and interactivity 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.

READ. PLAY. LIVE THE MYSTERY.

unmemory tells the story of the Killer Kittens, a band of sexy thieves. Many are after their valuable loot but there is only one person in the world who knows where it is hidden: you. Everything would be fine if it wasn’t for a small detail: you can’t remember anything. Using notes, pictures, and recorded messages you will have to solve the mystery and maybe, just maybe, discover an uncomfortable truth in this thriller story set in the 90s about love, revenge, and the influence of our memories on our identity.

FEATURES

Text is the gameplay: Reading is essential to solve the challenges and move forward along 8 chapters of a thriller story.

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

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

Nostalgia vibe: unmemory is full of 90s references to noir thrillers, games like Monkey Island or iconic devices like the walkman, the minidisc or the Casio watch.

Original soundtrack: Noir, mysterious, abstract… the music and sound of unmemory set a unique, eerie but calm atmosphere.

If you like films like Memento or Mulholland Drive. If you are a fan of games like Monkey Island, Device 6, Blackbar, or Her Story. If you like books like The House of Leaves or Masquerade. Or if you are just a fan of escape games… there are big chances you will like unmemory.

THE TEN BEST MOBILE GAMES 2020

“Unmemory” has less to do with the rather dusty “interactive fiction” than with clever puzzle games like “Device 6” or even the logic puzzle “Return of the Obra Dinn”. Exciting and extremely stylish.
