Quick time events: are they a useful gaming mechanic or unnecessary pain?
New Screenshots Released for Memoria
Memoria tells the story of Sadja, the warrior princess of Fasar. In her quest to become the greatest hero of all time, she ventured to the Gorian Desert to war against the invading demons there. She never returned, and she and her story were forgotten.
Five centuries later, a man named Geron meets a traveling merchant that promises to return his girlfriend Nuri, who has been transformed into a raven due to a curse, back into a human. Before the merchant does this, however, Geron must solve the mystery of Sadja.
Geron agrees to this task, unaware that his actions will trigger a chain of events that will cast a shadow on his homeland and turn the present into a dark mirror of its long forgotten past. In Memoria, players must solve two mysteries by taking on two separate roles.
Memoria addresses an important theme in its gameplay that is applicable to real life: The consequences of actions in the past can still guide how the world operates today.
This adventure game is expected to release in the fall of this year for PC for a to-be-determined price.
