Behind the Memory, a first-person exploration game by GuraShop, came out a short while ago on PC. The title is available on itch.io and is currently on sale for 2.59€ (about $2.75 USD). However, the developer is pushing for a release on Steam as well through the Greenlight program.
The game plays like a mix of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture; You guide Hector as he returns to an empty place he once called his home. The more he explores, the more memories come back to him unveiling the secrets behind his past. He also happens to be a Chatty Kathy, and narrates out loud throughout the game.
GuraShop states that:
- Cinematic, sound, light and art design that gives an immersive feeling to the game.
- Powerful and emotional story to discover gradually. Unveil the mysterious past of Hector and discover his darkest secrets.
- Explore the different environments of the game, from a lost forest to a post-apocalyptic city, while hearing the inner thoughts of the main character as he remembers events.
- There are multiple endings for the story. You are the one who chooses Hector’s fate.
The dev also warns that the game is on the shorter side, taking about an hour and a half to complete. The graphics look pretty good for an indie game and the hints of a darker story make Behind the Memory a little more, well, memorable. You can vote for the game on its Greenlight page and watch the trailer below.
