  • Summary: My Memory of Us is a reminiscence of a friendship between a boy and a girl. A friendship made during tough times. Times of terror, pain, and exclusion in a world where people were forced to live in two artificially detached worlds.

    Beautifully drawn, with simple yet satisfying puzzling at its core and heart and soul to spare. This moving allegory on the atrocities of war and the power of friendship, will stay with you long after the credits have rolled.

    Despite its annoying stealth sections, My Memory of Us is a truly touching platformer that uses beautiful artwork and clever puzzles to weave a rich narrative. It may not be perfect, but Patrick Stewart’s stellar narration is enough to forget any minor niggles.

    It can be hard to recommend sidescrolling platform-puzzlers these days with the sheer number of fantastic ones hitting the market every single year for quite some time now, but My Memory of Us is worth your time. With a unique atmosphere, well-told story, quality visuals and voice acting, and a run time short enough to make it perfect for a weekend finish, I think just about everyone will find [their time] and money well spent.

    My Memory of Us is a joy to play. It's a well-crafted game that is clearly made by a team equipped to tackle such a heavy subject matter. Even without directly showing any Nazi symbols, the story is heart-wrenching and manages to pay tribute to the sacrifice of those who fought against them.

    Sending the player to the heart of the horrors of World War II inside Warsaw Ghetto, My Memories of Us uses the conflict to tell a beautiful story of childhood friendship, telling this part of history through their own eyes. With its classic mechanics and some inaccurate collisions, Juggler's game still have a certain charm thanks to its beautiful artistic direction and soundtrack.

    Just like Valiant Heart from Ubisoft, My Memory of Us tackles a heavy subject with the tenderness of a friendship and (too) easy gameplay mechanics.

    It means well, and divorced from the game's context, the game's aesthetic is charming. But it doesn’t really work as either a puzzle game or as an educational experience.

    It's a beautiful pittoresque game, but neither its target audience nor its purpose is very clear. It's so simple structured it would pass as aIt's a beautiful pittoresque game, but neither its target audience nor its purpose is very clear. It's so simple structured it would pass as a children's educational game but after all it's not even a challenge for children. It looks like some multi cultural manifesto located in 1990's Berlin and telling a story of the 1930ies (Klezmer-like music playing in the background). Game controls are weird and often do what you didn't mean to. As a history lesson, the game fails, but can be understood as a metaphor. The puzzles suffer from a severe lack of imagination and are annoying sometimes. Expand
