About the Game

Two stories, two main characters, one epic experience: in Memoria, players travel through different time periods, while following two distinct protagonists: Sadja, a southern princess who wants to be a war hero, and Geron, a bird catcher who wants to lift a curse from his girlfriend. The game combines point & click gameplay with unique magic skills.

Sadja, a Southern princess, has an unstoppable desire to become the greatest hero in history – by joining and succeeding in the biggest war Aventuria has ever seen: The war of the Mages, fought in the middle of an uninhabitable desert.
Bird catcher Geron lives almost 450 years after the Great War. Geron’s eternal love, Nuri, has been turned into a crow by an evil curse. To give her back her human form, Geron needs the help of the mysterious merchant Fahi, who has magical powers. But Fahi is only willing to help Geron if he agrees to solve a puzzle which Fahi has seen in his dreams. The quest for answers soon leads to a chain of events that connects both Sadja's and Geron's stories, threatening to turn the present into a grim reflection of a long forgotten past.

Memoria combines classic point & click adventure gameplay with the features of The Dark Eye, one of the most successful RPG universes known in the fantasy world. Point & click adventure game puzzles get a unique twist by adding magical features – and a wise, talking staff. Over eight chapters, players control both Sadja’s and Geron’s fates, involuntarily interacting with each other and bridging over 500 years of time. Each chapter in Memoria features opulent graphics, epic locations, a thrilling fantasy crime story and a unique puzzle design that differs from chapter to chapter.

Absolutely stellar game with amazing detail and story. As the sequel to The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav, it greatly improves upon the animations and the thought process of puzzles. However, there might be a few puzzles that will seem like complete BS to you and you wouldnt be wrong. It might require you to think outside of the box and have some determination. If you can i would recommend playing Chains of Satinav before this so you can know the background of everything.

Pros:
Great Artwork and details
Bueatiful and unpredictable story about love and adventuring

Cons:
Some puzzles may take some time and frustration

OK so lemme get something out of the way before we being, I played this game without playing any of the previous games. It was discribed to me as a game that didn't require having played the other games to appreciate this one. To an extent, that is true, but the game feels a bit overwhelming when you havent played the other games. The game has some expectations, espectially in regards to it's puzzles. They are logic puzzles, and they are a bit outside of normal adventure game logic of one item for one interaction. Other traits common to adventure games, such as randomly rubbing everything against everything else is still in-tact.

I would recommend playing the other games before jumping into this one, but if you can't be asked, then jumping into this game alone is possible. Half of the story is underwhelming (i.e the part where you play as garron). it has a few moments, some tense, some funny, some that are actually a bit scary, but not enough to say it's anything other than passable. The other half (where you play as Sadja) are a real treat. Sadja is a female heroine who is actually a well
-rounded, well-developed character. For me, the game was worth it for her involvement alone, it was that good. The normal tedium of adventure games, the obtuse puzzling, the sometimes uncooperative interface, and the weird logic, were worth it just for Sadja's story. Adventure games don't do gameplay well, and this one really isn't different in that regard, but it tells a fantastic story with a damn good ending. I had goosebumbs at the end, despite the fact that i was a bit frustrated with the game at that point. It really mad the game worth it, rapped everything up nicely and made me happy that I owned the game.

The art in this game is fantastic. It has a Pastel feel to it. Lots of softer colors, blurred lines, and a really earthy beauty to it. I enjoyed it quite a bit. The sound design wasn't bad, nothing offensive, but no tunes i find myself whistling. And the voice acting is hit and miss. Sadja's voice acting is usually very good, Garons is passible, and everyone else is up for grabs (some good, some Laughably bad). The dialogue and writing are better then most, and the world being build is actually an interesting one, which makes me interested in the other games or possible sequals.

The game definitly has some negative points, such as towards the end. i won't spoil, but a character's personality change will leave some with a feeling of whiplash. It wasn't bad, just unexpected and definitly a bit sad. It felt a little forced, and didn't compare well to the rest of the character development that had happened thus far.

All in all, the game is good. It's an adventure game in an older style. Still has some of the same ♥♥♥♥les as older adventure titles, but still tells its story well enough. It's beautiful, has some wonderful characters, and a deep enough world to make it something people can dive into if it's their thing. If you liked older adventure titles like Monkey island, and want something a bit more centered around drama as opposed to comedy, then this game is worth a look-see. If your more into The Walking Dead style of adventure games, you may feel a bit disappointed. If adventure games arn't your thing, skip it or get it on sale.

“As the stone over the scarab, so rules the scarab over the stone” – The riddle from the Ancient Vault

After finishing Memoria’s prequel „The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav” I was anxiously waiting for this game, wanting to know how exactly would Geron’s and Nuri’s tale end. Sitting to the game I had some expectations about the overall course of it, and involved mechanics. I was somewhat uneasy about announced introduction of another main character – Princess Sadja, but overall I did not expected any drastic changes between “Memoria” and its predecessor.

To my surprise however, after just a couple of minutes I had to completely abandon all these previous assumptions, and for the benefit of the game that is ! Not only all the strong points of “Chains of Satinav” were still present – with its stunning music, beautifully hand-painted backgrounds and complete, detailed voice-over, but also, to my content “Memoria” introduced a handful of new ideas making the game even better !

In ‘Memoria’, contrary to the previous game, we follow two seemingly separate stories. One starts right after the events of the previous game, which left Nuri, a former fairy and Geron’s girlfriend, turned into a Raven, and the featuring Princess Sadja, a heroine from over 450 years ago, whose footsteps we’ll have to follow. The narrative is written perfectly, telling us the truly moving story, full of surprising events, magic and sacrifice. The characters are likeable, interesting, and their motivations are truly believable.

The main flaw of “TDE: Chains of Satinav’s” gameplay were its puzzles, which although solid and logical, turned out to be quite simple, and after a while may have felt a bit repetitive. In “Memoria” this problem is nonexistent, ‘cause almost each of game’s many brilliant puzzles feels unique. All that thanks to an improved magic mechanic, greatly augmented in comparison to “Chains of Satinav”, with both spells variety increasing, and their impact on puzzle solving changing dramatically. Now we are allowed to choose from much larger diversity of powers than before, each coming with a distinct applications.

Summing up, I have to admit that “Memoria” has left me speechless, and after finishing it, I won’t hesitate saying that this jewel should be counted among best adventure games of the last decade. Both plotline and the puzzle design in this game are as close to perfection as I’d dare to ask, and above that we are once again pleased with astonishing aesthetics known from the previous game in the series.

I’d strongly recommend this game not only to those who enjoy this particular genere, but also to anyone who has even the slightest liking to a top grade fantasy tales !

Pros:
- Deep and intriguing plotline with two entangled keynotes.
- Huge amount of witty puzzles.
- Unique magic mechanics.
- Beautiful soundtrack perfectly fitting the story !
- Sequel to “Chains of Satinav”
- Set in a vast fantasy setting of ‘Dark Eye’

Cons:
- Boxed “Collectors Edition” available only in Germany

The story continues from the game before it, to get a full pciture and emotional ties, you should play The Dark Eye Chains of Satinav, as it relates to the story and without playing it you will have no meaning to what the person is talking about, both games are worth it. The artwrok is fantastic, water colour paint drawn in detail out of a fairy tale, with every detail and item done with detail like the game before it, even conversations with NPCS, are done in detail with moving characters that come to life and shown in first person, Fairy tale is what comes to mind, those wonderous books you read as a child come to life in this game.

Gameplay is point and click with inventory system and magic use, puzzles and events and conversations are logical and won't have you doing some abstract picaso or infinate staircase riddle that has you smaking heads and every thing mostly fits.

Voice and sound are great, coming from a european maker, yolu actually get the feel of medievil europe and fairy tale setting then you would from a western game,

I can find no fault in the game and everyone should own it, it reminds me of the games of old, like Syberia were story and art fuse to create something you have not played before, honestly it did what few games could do, allow me to feel like I was playing a fairy tale or reading one, something I have not felt since I was a kid. 5/5

A point-and-click adventure game, Memoria tells the story of two people 450 years apart: Geron, an amateur mage attempting to find a way to restore the original form of his girlfriend, trapped in the form of a raven; and Sadja, a princess determined to carve her name into history's list of heroes.

For those of us used to modern, more interactive games, Memoria may seem a little slow-paced and tedious, and at times, the puzzles seem to be of questionable quality, involving trial-and-error more than anything else (the forest is a good example). However, as a story, the game is a great way to spend a few hours, and despite its short length and simplicity, the gradual developments and revelations are well done, and should keep you wanting to find out more.

Certainly this is not a game I would recommend for the general audience, but if a good short story is your thing, then I would say this is worth its cost, and in any case will hopefully encourage Daedalic and other game developers to create more games like these.
