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 came to this game with high expectations, and was not disappointed. I really loved The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav, and really hoped that this game would make a good sequel. It turned out to be an excellent sequel. The graphics were beautiful, the puzzles challenging and engaging, the hints helpful, and the story mesmerizing. I was a little concerned when I first heard that this game would tell two stories, but found that they reinforced each other very well. The introduction is very abrupt, but I liked it. I can see how it might be a little disorienting to somebody who didn’t play The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav, but I think that it is easy to catch on quickly. There was a lot of content in this game, providing many hours of fun. I can see myself replaying it – especially to try to get the rest of the achievements. If you like point and click games, puzzle games, and RPG games, I would recommend this highly.
I am only writing a review because I disagree with the single review posted, I generally dont want to spend my time.
That said, I just finished the game, I really enjoyed it for about 2 weeks of game play, total about 10-20 hours or so? I feel thoroughly satisfied and entertained!
I thought the graphics were very pretty, but not so big they they hogged up my system. I was able to keep up with emails etc on my other screen, which most games wont let me do on my macbook pro.
The pace is as fast or slow as you like, you can easily walk away in any point of the game to tend to something else.
The puzzles were challenging, and fun. I thought the story was interesting and different since you follow two story lines.
I love RPG point and click games, I thought this was an excellent one!
Beautiful and Engaging Game
To be brief, I found this to be a lovely game — beautifully illustrated with puzzles that were challenging (much more so than other games to be found on the app store) and all tied together with a gripping story arc. This game, when combined with the first of the series (The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav), represents one of the best adventure gaming experiences I’ve had on my Mac for a long time. I would strongly encourage people to play the Chains of Satinav first — although it is the weaker of the two games, it is the foundation for the story in this game. When combined you have a memorable gaming experience that will last a long time.
