"History is Written by the Victors" - Winston Churchill
Memoirs is a top-down shooter featuring a gritty story about War, presented in the style of a History Book - the story unfolds and History is literarily written on one page as the Player combats enemy troops on the opposing page.
Designed for the Experimental Gameplay Project September 2011 theme of "Story Game", the original story was conceptualised, written and integrated with the gameplay in 7-days.
In Memoirs, Accuracy and Evasion are valued over an Eager Trigger-Finger, as through reducing the number of Civilians casualties in the story, Players will gain an entirely different perspective of the events that transpire - hinting at a more sombre underlying message on the story's themes.
