Memoranda is a classic point and click adventure created by the independent studio Bit ByterZ. Being a successful Kickstarter project, the title for PC and iOS draws inspiration from works of Haruki Murakami – a Japanese author of e.g. Kafka on the Shore and The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle.
Memoranda takes the player to a quiet town inhabited by unusual individuals. All of them have one thing in common – they lost something. There is a man whose wife is gone, a professional runner who lost his leg, a bird without animal instincts, a WWII veteran who lost his mind. The heroine is also deprived of something – she forgot her name. The main mission is to solve the puzzle and find out whether she is indeed losing her memory or there is something else going on.
Gameplay of Memoranda released on PC and iOS stays faithful to the genre’s canon. Mainly, you explore, look for important items, and chat with over 35 NPCs. Puzzles that consist in manipulating pieces of equipment you gather play also an important role. The journey takes you to various places – apart from the mentioned town, you also visit a picturesque beach, a derelict junkyard, and gloomy basements. Together, there are over 40 different locations.
Cartoon 2D graphics in Memoranda really attract attention – each element is hand-drawn, therefore the final effect is eye-candy. The title features a specially-composed soundtrack including over 15 tracks. More than that, all dialogues are recorded.
