Rememoried is a first-person adventure game where you explore the memories of the main character solving puzzles along the way. It was developed by Vladimir Kudelka and published by Hangonit Studio. It was originally released on August 31st, 2015 for PC but has since been released for Xbox One.
This title is essentially a walking sim mixed with a puzzler, showcasing an interesting but sometimes annoying twist. In Rememoried, the main mechanic of the game is to remember your landscape to complete the memory. Therefore, everytime you look away from your surroundings they will change. This unique mechanic is used to solve all of the puzzles throughout the game. The big problem with this is that sometimes you will have to sit there spinning in circles to get the puzzles to line up just right in order to go to the next puzzle. However, the next puzzle is just the same and you end up doing this over and over again. I spent around twenty minutes on the one puzzle trying to get the stairs line up just right since it is random where the pieces will move to. For me, this is the biggest problem with the game. If you get lucky you would only have to spin around a few times in order to get the correct solution or you could be stuck spinning around for half an hour making little progress. It took me around two hours to beat but I’ve seen videos of people beating it in a little over twenty minutes. It just depends on how lucky you get with the randomness of the puzzle pieces.
I honestly couldn’t tell you anything about the story of Rememoried. I don’t know if I just missed the dialogue of it as there really isn’t a story. Due to this, the graphics and sound are the best part of this peculiar game. While most of the game is in black and white when there are colors added they pop and make the set beautiful. The soundtrack is a mix of eerie and classic electronic music that sounds quite nice.
Overall the game is a clunky puzzle platformer with beautiful graphics and nice sound. The main mechanic of having to turn around so that your memories will change allowing you to complete the puzzle gets tedious and sometimes quite frustrating. The jumping that you have to do to complete a lot of the puzzle just feels weird. The puzzles themselves were often confusing and some were difficult to understand exactly what you had to do. The game is also very short and will likely only that two to three hours if you don’t use a walkthrough. If you are looking for a game to boost your gamerscore, then Rememoried should only take a little under an hour for the full 1000 gamerscore if you get lucky and the game will align the puzzles for you. But outside of that, there is not much worth exploring
