Surreal adventure game Memoranda secures an iOS version through Kickstarter
Inspired by the fictions of Murakami
Upcoming surreal 2D adventure game Memoranda should be coming to iOS once it's finished.
It surpassed its CAD $22,000 stretch goal for an iOS version when its successful Kickstarter came to a close last week.
It seems to be a good'un too. It takes heavily from the magical realism of Japanese author Hiroki Murakami. So if you're a fan of his fiction then Memoranda should appeal to you too.
Memoranda takes place in a small town that seems to blend people and technology from different eras of time into an anachronistic whole.
There are laptops and bamboo water clocks, a WWII survivor, and an elephant hoping to become a human.
The one thing that draws it all together is that each character is losing something.
This is the central theme and is also the reason the title is "memoranda" (which is the plural for a physical reminder of something not to be forgotten).
With its beautiful animated scenes and strange characters this should be worth keeping an eye on. We'll keep you updated on its progress.
