Lost Memories Dot Net
MIF’s first ever game commission comes courtesy of one of the most innovative and individual video game designers working today. Based in Portland, Oregon, Nina Freeman has won huge renown for autobiographical video games such as Cibele, which draw strongly on her own life and experiences – and her new game for MIF17 was every bit as frank and intensely personal.
Lost Memories Dot Net harks back to the early 2000s when Freeman was a young girl discovering the twin joys of online chat and creating websites. Gamers play a role based on the young Freeman, building both relationships and websites online while following a narrative that grows more intimate as the game goes on. #lostmemories
