If Haruki Murakami is one of your favorite writers, we suggest you check out Memoranda. This recently launched game was actually inspired by Murakami’s books and describes a surreal world full of lonely characters. It follows the story of a young woman who has lost her memory and your task is to help her find who she is by putting the puzzle pieces together.

In this game, everybody’s losing something or someone. This young lady gradually realizes she is forgetting her own name. The first explanation that comes to mind is that she’s losing her memory. But is there something else that could explain her transformation?

Memoranda is set in a quiet little town where the presence of strange characters regularly questions normalcy. You’ll meet a World War II survivor and an elephant taking shelter in a man’s cottage hoping to become a human.

The game’s graphics look similar to an animated movie. If you like surreal games, then Memoranda is the right game for you. The game also reminds us of Memento, a movie that revolves around the idea of memory loss.

Memoranda is a classic 2D Point & Click game for Linux, Mac and PC. It include more than 40 scenes, 30 characters and numerous puzzles. The puzzles are not always very easy to solve, but there are always enough clues in the story to solve them. This is the protagonist, who little by little realizes she is forgetting her own name. Interestingly, after working on the game for several years, we forgot to actually have a name for this character, and just use a nickname for her. But is she really losing her memory? Or is there something else that would explain the strange circumstances? We will find out as the story unfolds.

You can buy Memoranda for $12.74 from Steam.
