Crunching Koalas has revealed My Memory of Us as its latest game headed to Switch, starring none other than Patrick Stewart (from Star Trek: The Next Generation and X-Men fame) as the narrator.
My Memory of Us is a puzzle-based, side-scrolling story game based around the idea of hope and heroism standing in the face of absolute terror. The game's story begins in The City - a place inspired by pre-Second World War Warsaw - where a young boy and girl from two different worlds come together to simply be kids, free to play and able to enjoy life in innocence. However, war soon breaks out and the children, faced with forced separation, must find a way to stay together and survive.
- A moving story about friendship and love in dangerous times
- Beautiful, sketch-like graphics inspired by naïve art
- Pair mechanics: take control of two separate? characters with different skills and abilities, or control them as a pair
- A grotesque tale mixed with bittersweet humor
- The events shown in the game are based on actual stories from war
- A dialogue system built around the language of symbolic pictures
- Various logical puzzles in 2.5D
- A story that offers deeper meaning, set in historical realities
This isn't Patrick Stewart's first time acting for a video game; he previously lent his talents to the likes of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Nonetheless, it certainly adds an interesting twist to a game that already looks almost hauntingly compelling in its own right. The game is scheduled to launch on Switch in "Q4 this year" - hopefully we'll receive more news on this one in the following months.
