Previously available on PC and mobile, and more recently PS4 and Vita, EMMA: Lost in Memories has now made its way to Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, pushing out a poetic, surrealistic experience in the process.
Available to purchase and download on Xbox One, PS4, PS Vita and Nintendo Switch from today, EMMA: Lost in Memories sees you playing through things as Emma – a young, vibrant woman who leaves her home in search of an owl. From there, madness ensues as she gets lost in a weird world that gets more dangerous with every turn.
Priced at £6.69, Emma: Lost in Memories has been created by Sandbloom Studio, before the team at JanduSoft (of Furwind and Spartan Fist fame) picked it up for publication. And if you’re after a weird puzzling platformer that requires strategy and thought, this is quite possibly it.
- One fast and simple mechanic: all the platforms and walls start disappearing when you touch them!
- The character runs automatically at a fixed speed! Control her special abilities (double jump, dash and climb) and do your best to react at the correct time.
- Minimalistic 2D artistic style completely drawn by hand.
- Dynamic gameplay in a poetic and eccentric world.
- Single-screen levels which combine skill and ingenuity with planification and strategy.
- Two game modes: Main Story and Memory Chest. Complete the Main Story first to enjoy the levels in the Memory Chest!
- Delicate reflexion on memory loss.
