In Memoriam is an odd duck. That's the bottom line. I am giving it the Gold Star, with some strong reservations, purely for originality, atmosphere, and subject matter—but it is not without its flaws. And it's certainly not for everybody. I, though, found it compelling and involving, enough that I persevered past the rocky (read: arcade) parts when I would have quit a lesser game out of sheer frustration. It really is one of a kind, and so much was done right that it overshadows what was not. I'm not sure I would play another game like this, but I am glad I played this one.
This is a very curious, intelligent and ambitious game. In these chilly latter days of adventure games, it’s a very encouraging game to come across. I think its format should be used as the basis for a series of adventures. Go buy the game, and together maybe we can make that happen!
In the end, I didn't give the game the lowest mark. There were a few nice parts but nothing that compelled or left me with a sense of accomplishment at completing the game. In a way, In Memoriam even fails to fail. I can't recommend this game to anyone other than as a $2.95 bargain bin cutout. Had it been released as a free download in, say, eight parts, I think it would have been much more appropriate. Just chalk this up to a halfway decent idea abysmally executed and walk, no, run away. In Memoriam indeed. I'm trying to forget already.
