Memoranda to gamers: New “magical realism” adventure coming next year

If you like your realism infused with a hint of magic, you'll want to keep an eye on Memoranda when it's released for download next year.

Created by indie Iranian developer MotioneyeZ, Memoranda tells the tale of a young woman who can't remember things very clearly, especially her own name. In order to restore her memories, players must guide her through a surreal adventure that leads even into her own dreams. Along the way, she'll meet a variety of bizarre characters; some are human, like a musician, baker, and soldier, and some are not, such as an elephant, a scarecrow and even a pair of eyes.

A hand-drawn, 2D point-and-click adventure inspired by Haruki Murakami’s short stories, Memoranda's aesthetic influence is truly eclectic, combining European-style houses, American jazz music, and Japanese elements in a setting that isn't based on any particular city or country, but rather one of imagination. The player's tasks will be equally diverse, as you must "fight with sounds in your head, talk to animals, collect sound wave frequencies floating the air and even bring things from your dreams to life."

There is no firm release date set for Memoranda, but MotioneyeZ is currently targeting a downloadable launch sometime in the second quarter of 2013.  In the meantime, keep an eye on the official website for more information.

Wow, that’s a pretty unique art style, and from the sound of it, the gameplay’s gonna be quite unique aswell. I’m usually all about the oldschool, but this one had me interested.
