Two stories, two main characters, one epic experience: in Memoria, players travel through different time periods, while following two distinct protagonists: Sadja, a southern princess who wants to be a war hero, and Geron, a bird catcher who wants to lift a curse from his girlfriend. The game combines point & click gameplay with unique magic skills.
Sadja, a Southern princess, has an unstoppable desire to become the greatest hero in history – by joining and succeeding in the biggest war Aventuria has ever seen: The war of the Mages, fought in the middle of an uninhabitable desert.
Bird catcher Geron lives almost 450 years after the Great War. Geron’s eternal love, Nuri, has been turned into a crow by an evil curse. To give her back her human form, Geron needs the help of the mysterious merchant Fahi, who has magical powers. But Fahi is only willing to help Geron if he agrees to solve a puzzle which Fahi has seen in his dreams. The quest for answers soon leads to a chain of events that connects both Sadja's and Geron's stories, threatening to turn the present into a grim reflection of a long forgotten past.
Memoria combines classic point & click adventure gameplay with the features of The Dark Eye, one of the most successful RPG universes known in the fantasy world. Point & click adventure game puzzles get a unique twist by adding magical features – and a wise, talking staff. Over eight chapters, players control both Sadja’s and Geron’s fates, involuntarily interacting with each other and bridging over 500 years of time. Each chapter in Memoria features opulent graphics, epic locations, a thrilling fantasy crime story and a unique puzzle design that differs from chapter to chapter.

I really love the Dark Eye series. A bit of romance, a bit of darkness, a bit humorous. Has the narrative of faerie tales where things get entangled and comes together with twists and turns in the end and everything makes sense. Eventhough it is a faerie tale it doesn't sugarcoat the ending: no "and they lived happily ever after" yet still a type of happiness or hope. The rifleread more on the wall is definitely fired in this one. Story here does not have a strong, direct connection to the first game "Chains of Satinav". So if you haven't played it you can enjoy this game as well but if you have played you'd enjoy this story even more. This game in my opinion is a wonderful specimen of point and click adventure genre. I <3 Daedalic :D

It really is! It has a good story, good puzzles and great pacing. The story progresses nicely, and almost each puzzle solved brings with it some story progression. That is a trait of great adventure games. You never feel stuck, and when you do actually have problems with a puzzle, you're aware that it is your own fault and you have overlooked something.
A great game overall, oneread more that has a story to tell and does not insult your intelligence or waste your time while doing it.

This game indeed is better than the first one and I was able to get much further than before without using a walkthrough. This time you will be switching between two characters, Sadja's story in the past and Geron in the present, and there are certainly some challenging parts but with some common sense you'll get through it. I appreciated some very good emotional moments and theread more new characters are ok, too. I'd say the game's worth its money if you like Daedlic's style. I kinda mind the ending being quite short but I liked it nonetheless. Really touching story.
