Memento Launches Its Attack on PC
Pixelated JRPG horror Memento has launched on Steam, bringing throwback horror to systems as ancient as XP and Windows 2000. The game explores an island that was once a battleground, but has since been turned into a garden of remembrance and museum. The main character takes a class trip to visit, and awakens to an alternate version of the island. The machines of war have awakened with her, and now she must escape a world meant for death and destruction.
Japanese indie developer Labo Game Studio built in multiple endings and intentionally hard gameplay to give Memento plenty of replay value. They chose a orchestral soundtrack to back the Japanese horror, and plopped a young schoolgirl down in their nightmare world. Part visual novel, part terrifying puzzler, Memento brings casual horror to an unexpected location.
