Check out Without Memory, a new PS4 exclusive

Without Memory (2)

There’s a reason why new console cycles rock. Amidst long-standing franchises using new hardware, there’s also quite a few new games thrown into the mix as well. Including some exclusives, such as the upcoming PlayStation 4 game Without Memory.

Developer Dinosaurum Games site have updated their site, spilling a few beans on their project. Slated for a 2016 release, Without Memory will play out as a third-person psychological thriller that is influenced by PS3 exclusives Heavy Rain (Yay!) and Beyond: Two Souls (Boo-urns!). The game is shooting for a more realistic style, thanks to the use of Unreal Engine 4, dynamic conversation options and logic puzzles to keep the action flowing.

Without Memory (3)

According to some dodgy Google translations on my side, the synopsis for the game is as follows:

The story of how one moment can change the life of an ordinary girl who was no different from other people. Anna suddenly wakes up in the woods and realizes that just does not remember anything. She knows no address, no information about themselves and very frightened. Any actions and actions directly affect the storyline and the state of the protagonist.

You have to survive in harsh conditions, to make difficult decisions for which will have to bear responsibility. And finally – get the truth. Before our eyes, Anna will grow and develop. She learns to trust or to detect lies. The player’s actions will depend on the attitude of all the other characters.

Leaning on those Quantic Dream developed influences, Without Memory will also be a quick-time event heavy game, but it’ll utilise a more “modernized” system that will transform gameplay into a fascinating passage, not just boring keystrokes that looks like: «Press X to win»”.

I’m not exactly a keen supporter on games that utilise heavily-scripted QTEs in order to move a story along. Most of the time, it distracts from what is actually happening on the screen, and makes for a done-in-one gameplay experience.

Still, I do like to give developers a chance to show their wares off first. So I’ll be patient Without Memory.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.
  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Wow. Just because it doesn’t have ESRAM doesn’t mean it doesn’t have any memory.

    • Hammersteyn

      Winner!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    And, of course, Anna will look like Ellen Page.

    • Hammersteyn

      If she had blue eyes I would have said Elizabeth.

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Maybe, doesn’t look heart shaped enough though. The wanted pic on the pillar looks more Page-ish.

        • Hammersteyn

          Well spotted

  • Jonah Cash

    QTE….. I will give that a pass!! If I wanted to play a movie I would make a controller around my TV remote and play and pause every now and then!!

    • Hammersteyn

      Sounds to me like Heavy Rain meets Walking Dead what with the QTE and the decision making. Will have to see more though.

      • Jonah Cash

        I hear QTE and I am out, you might as well try and sell me a new Kinect…. That is how likely I am to buy a game with QTE’s!!

        • Hammersteyn

          Wow

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Interesting. So if the game revolves around memory, what does it mean that the antagonists have a logo that looks like a broken letter “I”? Seeing as memories are one of the main characteristics that make you, you.

  • FoxOneZA

    Oh great, another PS4 title delayed until the Alien’s arrive.

    • RinceofFuturePast

      Where does it say delayed? They’re making the game, which is why it’s out in 2016…

      • FoxOneZA

        Oh damn. I forgot to add this at the end :P

    • Hammersteyn

      Well not delayed they are at the picture drawing stage at the moment so yeah I can understand why a 2016 release is planned. Same year as Star Citizen I think?

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        No! What are you doing! Saying things like that will make it come true. Don’t worry my beautiful 315p, it’ll be okay. My precious :/

        • Hammersteyn

          Hahahaha

  • Pieter Kruger

    Yaaaaaaawn!

  • derp

    So a joke about an overdose of roofies would be inappropriate ?

  • Sir Rants A Lot Llew. Jelly!!!

    So we’ve gone from Zombies to games where you have no memory or can alter them?

  • https://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX Umar’s Crown

    looks awesome….Can’t wait to see more

  • David

    So far the only ps4 exclusive to interest me at all is the order. This doesn’t sound interesting either

    • http://batman-news.com McFancypants HD 3.0

      Agreed. Without Memory sounds like Beyond, but without memor…um, Aiden o_O

      • David

        Lol I don’t like to judge too quickly but so far..ehh

        • http://batman-news.com McFancypants HD 3.0

          No, you should judge. After all, this is the internet.

          • David

            I try not to be like everyone else lol

  • Tauriq Moosa

    Boo, concept art.

  • John Doe

    PS4 is really destroying Xbox One in games.

  • Gemini

    Actually, Beyond Two Souls is not “boo-urns”. The game is nice. Not the perfect one but it’s still good.

  • Tauriq Moosa

    Check out this new PS4 exclusive! Well, screenshots. Well, actually just concept art and a translated explanation. Er…
