good story deep
A downloadable game for Windows
Forget-Me-Knot is a short video game in which the player embodies the character of an elderly man, Harold. Confined to the living room that has become his world, the player shares his confusion and disability.
Through a series of interactions with objects in his environment, it becomes apparent that Harold is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease - affording the player the insight into his condition which Harold himself lacks. The game aims to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and provide a first-person perspective of living with this condition.
The original prototype was developed in 2015 for my 4th Year Honours Project at Abertay University in the legacy games engine UDK.
This version has been re-built in Unreal Engine 4 to allow players to experience a downloadable interactive version.
Take your time, listen to each storybeat fully before progressing.
