New PS4 Exclusive Game Announced: Without Memory, a Thriller in Unreal Engine 4 by Dinosaurum Games
Russian Developer Dinosaurum Games recently announced the development of a new PS4 exclusive game, Without Memory, set for release in 2016.
The game, currently in the concept phase, will be an “interactive thriller” based on Unreal Engine 4.
The story follows an ordinary girl that wakes up in a forest with no memories left. The player’s decisions will influence the plot, and there will be “tens of endings.”
According to the founder of the studio Arkady Kulikov, while Without Memory is inspired by Quantic Dream’s games like Beyond: Two Souls, it has the ambitious goal to surpass them in giving the player the ability to radically influence the course of the story. Kulikow also mentions that he aims for the game to be world-class and that the studio has a suitable team for that goal and the resources necessary to create “stunning graphics” on par with the other games that will be released in 2016.
The title will be semi-open world and the point of view will be third person, while the touch pad of the DualShock 4 will be used to select actions. PS4 exclusivity was chosen in order to best use the capabilities of the console and “make a breakthrough in graphics and animation.”
The folks at Dinosaurum also released a batch of concept artwork and a mock-up of the box art, that you can see in the gallery below. According to the studio, we’re going to see the first actual screenshots this summer.
Dinosaurum Games was founded in 2013 in Moscow, and considering that the thriller genre isn’t exactly the most widespread on consoles, I’m quite eager to see what they’ll be capable of. Their official site is scheduled to open on May 24th.
For the moment I’ll leave you with the concept artwork, that definitely sets an interesting mood.
