"Memento Mori - Remember Your Mortality"

From concept to completion in 48-hours at the Global Game Jam 2011 (Singapore), Memento Mori is a  game based on the famous Latin poem of the same name, based on the jam's theme of "Extinction".
Featuring double metaphors related to the theme of "Extinction", players guide a Roman Poet through a series of platforms made from the famous poem, as the words crumble behind him, while he runs towards salvation. Realised through the gameplay and presentation of the game, players are left to ponder on the metaphorical overtones and how the theme of "Extinction" is realised.

Memento Mori also features 2 of the GGJ2011 achievements: "Game for a Cause" and "Mandelbrot".

GGJ-2011 Achievements:
Game for a Cause: The game is about a social or political issue that can be solved solely through increased awareness.
Mandelbrot: The game features some pattern or aspect that fractally repeats itself at different scales.
