Vote For Memory’s Dogma On Steam Greenlight

Visual novel fans will have noticed plenty of new titles appearing on Steam in recent months and this is mostly thanks to the work of Sekai Project. After very successful Kickstarters for The Grisaia Trilogy, CLANNAD, World End Economica, Fault Milestone One and more already under their belt, they are back with Memory’s Dogma.

Memory’s Dogma is an indie visual novel from Japan that has an interesting science-fiction twist. The story takes place in 2030 where technology has advanced to the point where human memories can be saved and recorded. However, the government has a virtual monopoly on this data and run facilities, called “Connect Centers” where people can communicate with the dead using their memories. The centers function as a means for grieving people to talk to their recently deceased loved ones only, as it is forbidden for humans who are still alive to have their memories recorded.

The story centers around a college student named Kusuhara Hiroki who is feeling suicidal after the sudden loss of Mizanashi Sorana, his close childhood friend. Since her memories will only be stored for a short period of time, Kusuhara along with another friend, hatches a plan to steal the data. However, the two discover that there is more to the Connect Centers than what meets the eye.

The story definitely sounds very intriguing and judging by the character profiles the game also features a very interesting cast. The Kickstarter page also showcases some very nice background artwork and according to the cost breakdown, the majority of the required funds will be spent on visuals. If the modest initial goal is reached there are also a couple of stretch goals in order to add full Japanese voice work to the game as well as additional animated scenes.

At the time of writing Memory’s Dogma is already close to 30% funded with almost a month left for the Kickstarter, so we are very optimistic about its chances. Check out the trailer for a glimpse of what the game is aiming for and then head over to the Kickstarter page for more information as well as the opening theme track. Don’t forget to vote for the game on Steam Greenlight either.

Vigilantes By Timeslip Softworks

After releasing Deadstone, one of the most enjoyable top down shooters of 2014, Timeslip Softworks is back with a Kickstarter for their latest title, Vigilantes. This time they have turned their attention to the turn-based strategy genre and have set their sights quite high. Vigilantes is influenced by genre classics from the 90s, such as Jagged Alliance, X-Com and Fallout, but breaks out of the mold with a unique theme and setting.

Currently powering its way to success on Kickstarter is Prismata from Lunarch Studios. It is a hybrid strategy title that fuses elements of collectible card games, tabletop strategy as well as elements of real-time strategy games. However, by focusing on easy to learn gameplay and fast paced matches the game aims to be more accessible than the genres from which it draws its inspiration. This doesn’t mean that the game is lacking in depth though as it has plenty of features that will appeal to players who love strategy titles.

Syndrome (Camel 101)

Looking at the previous releases of developer Camel 101 reveals two things. Firstly, they are definitely not lacking in ambition when it comes to their titles and secondly, they are getting better at what they do with each release. This is very evident in their upcoming release, Syndrome. The game opens with your character waking from cryosleep aboard the exploration and science ship, the Valkenburg. In true survival horror fashion, the shift is drifting through pace with the rest of the crew all dead or insane. You are required to get your bearings, find out what happened and figure out who you can trust.
