Ongoing Commentary

It’s not often you get a horror title being developed for the Vita, Ipad and Iphone that looks this good, interesting and exciting.

Forgotten Memories, announced in 2009, is being developed on the Unity engine and is being scheduled for release for the IOS and Wii U. The premise of the game is simple enough, you play as an inspector who must find Eden Swank, a young girl who has managed to escape from her kidnappers only to be stuck in this hospital. You’ll be playing as Rose Hawkins alongside her partner Nathan Howard as they too venture into this abandoned hospital, which they’ll find is full of horrors like they’ve never imagined.

Now the developers have stated that the game will mix both elements of classic and modern survival horror games, with a fear system at the core of gameplay. Add to this that there will be multiple characters who will fight beside you, each with their own personalities and weaknesses, and stand by you as you try to solve riddles and puzzles of this place as you inspect the hospital. Boss battles are further promised as well as confronting enemies.

Also it seems Eden may not be the only victim of this kidnapping as it seems there will be others who use their environment to avoid confrontation and stay alive. To what degree we have to interact with them or how many others there are remains to be seen.

Shadows are one of the enemies you can see during the most recent gameplay footage released (check out the gallery) and they will cover their weak spots if you try to aim at them, they react to light thanks to the dynamic light and shadows of the title. Only small concern is that in the gameplay trailer they seemed a little to slow though I’m sure this is just an early build and the final version will have much more fierce and quicker enemies.

Anyway like or comment if you’ve got anything to say and be sure to keep following this page as Forgotten Memories furthers its developement and nears its release date.

Recently games have started to come out of countries not usually known or capable, whether its resources or different culture towards gaming, for producing games. Dreadout is the latest, coming straight from Indonesia and puts us into the role of Linda, a student who along with her group, veer from their trip to discover an abandoned town unlike any other.

Now the game is a third person perspective which shifts to first person when using your phone, camera or video camera to interact with the many ghosts and monsters (Fatal Frame is the most well known example of what Dreadout straight out of Indonesia’s lore. You’ll encounter the Pocong, a sould of the dead trapped in its burial suit or Palasik, blood sucking nightmares. This new lore is intriguing and while playing the game you’ll learn a little more about the culture and experience creatures you possibly can’t be prepared for (unless you pick up a book on the subject then you’ll be prepared.)

The game promises an exciting plot with many twists and an interesting feature seems to be that you’ll be able to share your captured shots online via Facebook. People love to share their gaming experiences so we’ll see how many share their experiences once the game is released.
