A downloadable console game for Windows

Welcome to the Memory Bridge, a place linking various Memory Lanes together. 

Today we have two cases of interlinked Memory Lanes, ID 25971 and ID 73264.

25971 is a cheerful college girl with idealistic dreams...

While 73264 is a mysterious scientist overwhelmed with grief.

These two, however, have broken the laws of the Redemption Zone.

For that, they have been punished...

And never to be seen again.



Notes: 

  • This is a console-based text game, hence there are no pictures in the game.  
  • It takes approximately 2 hours to play. 
  • Version 1.0 only has 25971's route.
  • Sorry, but there won't be any Mac or Android version. (The game is an .exe file).

Binary code wasn't a secret :(

"I open my mouth to answer, but is interrupted by Rei."

Shouldn't it be "am"?

Hmm, a choice just passed by me without me choosing, meta-narrative element or didn't write the other choice in? (Me being too quick and inputting my answer before the question even appeared waaah, I also did this with the name, meaning I didn't have a name)

I love that the sounds that the game is progressing haven't yet ended, I am scared of the amount of text I will have to catch up on, so instead of reading it I am procastinating by writing this. Phew! It stopped.

Also, I keep inputting random things instead of numbers, guess I am too impatient.

Hmm, same numbers. Also they are repeating in a loop, guess that means it's not actually important! (Ok, now that I have three I am sure they don't mean anything) (Just checked it one more time xD) (Every time it appears again I have the temptation to check again lol)

Lmao, if I press the arrow keys I can choose between 1, 2 and j. Top 3 numbers.

"Min: By the way, where's Rei? I thought he's gonna eat with us".

Shouldn't it be "was"?

"A shadow looms behind me. I turn back and realises it is Rei."

Shouldn't it be "realise"?

"He is staring at the lifeless man wide-eyed, and then at me."

Shouldn't it be "He stared at the blah blah, and then at me."?

Trace telling us to not fall in love with Rei makes me think of Seth, I thought I was getting Rico (I chose to be more interested in him, I mean, Rei) and instead I got a worse Seth. Whereas Seth I'd risk it when Lynette told us to not get in contact with him, in this one I don't want to risk it.

Something cool I guess, I can relate to Matt since I am also a memer and a swimmer, but I also can relate to Rico. Well, I am sadly not rico myself (Rico means Rich in portuguese brazilian, so that's the pun) but I try to be smart and partake in more intellectual olympics than swimming.

"Operator: We had to cut off some parts of them due to confidentiality. Wouldn't want to reveal too much secrets, you know."

Shouldn't it be "many"?

"Trace: BECAUSE OF YOUR INTERVENTION, SHE WILL BE MARKED AS A FAILURE AND IS ERASED FOREVER!!"

I feel as though the "is" there is unnecessary.

I really liked the typing noise.

Here's why I chose that Trace is guilty:

Min was guilty, even though it was self-defense. It might even have been something more since there was a lady laying on the side.

In here, no matter the intentions, reasons, motives or whether it was self-defense the person gets declared guilty.

It is simply the logical and moral reasoning that Trace would also be guilty.

I disagree with this system because of my religion. I feel I need not explain more than that, I'd gladly do, though.

WOW, that was a lot! I wrote it all as I played, except the reasoning behind my last choice, that was later.

I have to say I really liked this experience, I can see why it's not too popular though.

I wonder what this has do to with BB?

I think this is all, thank you for this great experience.

Hi again! Thanks for playing! This was an experimental game so do forgive the writing, I don't think I proofread it enough. Thanks for writing the corrections I should make, though I don't think I'll update this game- well at least not in the near future. 

Ahh Trace and Seth are parallel of each others in some way I guess. Ooh, a fellow memer and swimmer! And wow, intellectual olympics? That's so cool! 

There is actually a link between Redemption Zone and BB, which I'll hopefully address in my next games, but I can't tell you because of spoilers! I can say that the choices you chose, though, is the "canon" choice.

Anyway, thanks again for playing! ^^
