Some material may be inappropriate for persons under age 13. If this were a movie, it would probably be PG-13.

You woke up, and nearly went off a cliff. It was not a good start to the day. Add to that amnesia, a foreign land, and people who want to kill you for some reason. You want to remember everything, but they want you to forget. Your memories just might kill you.

This story takes the player to Europe, in a tale involving murder, deception and intrigue. Can you work out who you are, and who you can trust?

Player Comments

As far as storygames go, it's pretty linear, but the story itself more than makes up for a lack of branching choices. In fact, I don't think that's the type of game Dangerous Memories was set out to be, which is perfectly fine. I was immersed in the story all the way through, even in the beginning when I was trying to catch on what was going on. This was one of the better uses of long-term amnesia I've seen. The way the story unfolded little-by-little made it all the more exciting without talking down to the reader. Even the streamlined style of writing was to the story's benefit, keeping a pace that kept the excitement and tension high.

I can easily say reading Dangerous Memories was one of the most enjoyable things I've done on the Storygames portion on the site.

I loved it! Of all the mystery stories I've read on the site so far, I'd say this is definitely the one with the most mystery. I really liked that you started off not knowing anything and had to figure out for yourself who to trust and who not to. It's a shame, 'cos I'd like to see a sequel, but since the guy's already got his memory back, that wouldn't really work. Great game! ^_^

Wow, great story. Well written, and I love the unreliable narrator style of Memento and The Paradox Factor that you pulled off in this story. Very well done.

Amazing story! Great action and adventure, very good idea of waking up not remembering who you are etc, very original. Great characters, good length of story before a choice, sometimes a bit long. Excellent vocabulary.

Okay, I loved this a lot! The mystery with Adonica, the bull, and everyone else was a fun one. The narrator with amnesia is also enjoyable in itself. The story is fairly linear, with a couple of bad ends sprinkled in here and there.
I think this was really good!
A bit on the short side, but enjoyable nonetheless.

I really enjoyed playing this. It was very mysterious, and the amnesia from the beginning meant that neither the player nor the main character knew anything that the other didn't. However, I loved how you left just enough clues to begin to piece together what was going on early game.
The main (and basically only) issue I have with the game is that if Adonica is killed, and you visit her and see her body, the game later still comments "what they might have done" to her, even though the main character has already seen her dead.
Other than that, really well-made game.

Damn stuffing diamonds in a bull's head rather than butt of a jackass... Are there even artefacts like that? ;D

This was an interesting story, not like many that I've seen before. It was a little too linear for me, but content made up for it. I also didn't like the way information was brought on, with random pieces of information being remembered as the story develops, but I think there could be a better way to smooth that out. Overall, good story!
