Before I Forget
3-Fold Games, the micro game studio co-founded by Chella Ramanan and Claire Morwood, is launching its debut game, Before I Forget. Before I Forget began life at the xx+ Game Jam 2016, in Bristol, with the theme 'borders'. The game explores what it means to lose your memories and how living with dementia affects your life and those around you. Developed with support from medical professionals and Gaming the Mind, this short narrative game centres Sunita, a woman living with dementia. This expertise directly informs the development of Before I Forget to help create a sensitive portrayal of dementia for players. Players interact with objects to unlock Sunita’s memories and unravel a mystery. The game launched as a Humble Original on 5 June 2020, followed by Steam and itch.io for PC, Mac and Linux, on 16 July 2020. Before I Forget was nominated for a BAFTA within the Game Beyond Entertainment category in 2021.
