Ubi Brings 'In Memoriam' to Mac
7:20 AM | Alvaro Radigales | Comment on this story
In a recent announcement game developer and publisher Ubi Soft revealed that a Mac port of the crime investigation thriller In Memoriam is in the works. At first, the title might look like your average movie clip-based whodunit, but the gameplay seems to drift a little bit from the standard of the genre:
While investigating a series of bizarre murders committed throughout the length and breadth of Europe, the journalist Jack Lorski vanishes with his young female companion.While this CD is indeed the base of the game content, the player must rummage around for clues in more than 300 actual web sites linked to the plot, and will even receive e-mail messages from some of the game characters providing further information for the investigation to continue.
Afew weeks after Jack’s disappearance, the agency he works for receives a CD-Rom featuring fragments of the filmed log book he kept, along with a mixture of strange data. The agency decides to publish the CD-Rom. It’s the only clue that might help them find the missing journalist.
The CD-Rom is designed like a game and was created by a kind of crazy esthete who, though cultivated, seems devoid of any moral sense. The killer goes by the name of “The Phoenix”. He toys with the player, steering him this way and that, feeding clues in dribs and drabs which lead back into the past to shed light on the mystery.
If you want to investigate In Memoriam" further, may I suggest the official game web site, linked below, as good place to find your first clues.
