Another year, another Global Game Jam, but this time it’s online and I had a chance to collaborate with Helen Kwok and some wonderful musicians, Yi-Ling Ng and Andrew J Ryan.
POSTCARD MEMENTO – by Helen Kwok, Michelle Chen, Yi-Ling Ng & Andrew J Ryan
An AR/ARG game about uncovering memories from a lost postcard.
The year is 2030. You find a postcard dated from 2020, hand-made from one lover to another. Using your special ‘memory camera’, you scan the lost postcard to reveal its embedded memories. One final puzzle remains: where is the *secret location* that the lovers were going to meet?Inspired by the Griffin and Sabine book series by Nick Bantock, Postcard Memento is a short, intimate and personal game about the power of memories and time. A love letter to Melbourne after lockdown.
