The Moon Pirates‘ jazz-punk adventure game Don’t Forget Me shows what modern technology can do to people’s minds.
Playing with people’s memories seems to be in vogue these days, especially in the cyberpunk genre, as could be seen with >observer_. This game is inspired by Her Story and The Red Strings Club (see Amazon/Twitch Prime free games in July 2018) and features much more classic point-and-clicker gameplay, while telling the story about amnesia Fran who dives into the minds of patients to uncover and copy their memories, only to find out that there’s a big conspiracy going on.
Being part detective game and social commentary, one has to learn each individual patients’ history and find the connections, quite literally, because the puzzle system is based on text. Making logical conclusion and obviously doing a lot of interrogation work, it’s a much more cerebral experience than what the cyberpunk genre usually offers, and this is what makes it so intriguing.
The game is out now on PC with a 10% launch discount that lasts until April 27, 2021, at 1 PM UTC. It’s also available in a deluxe edition which includes the soundtrack.
