Really enjoyed this one. Very abstract, neat stuff.
In Memory of the Eternity
A downloadable game for Windows
In Memory of the Eternity
There are many stories in this game.
Some of them are sad, some funny.
Some of them are stories of madness, of violence.
Some are ordinary.
Yet they all have about them a sense of mystery.
The mystery of life.
Sometimes, the mystery of death.
To introduce this story, let me just say it encompasses the all.
It is beyond the "fire", though few would know that meaning.
This game speaks directly to your mind.
Its meaning will be clearly revealed only by completing it, but no words are needed to do that.
The process itself of finding the right way to reach the end is an important element of the game's non-written narrative.
Lose yourself in the most obscure experience you'll ever take part and let the darkness be enlightened by the end of your journey.

I really loved this- it was surreal and abstract yet intimate as well. I love the sound effects. Awesome job! ^_^
I know this is one of your older games, but I really like the games you make as a developer. I just wanted to throw my coin into the hat. I'm pretty sure my interpretation of what the meaning of your game was is incorrect, but I still enjoyed it (despite being really bad at it lol).
I'll just repost here my YT comment about your video:
First of all, thank you for the video(s)! And yes, I actually watch them. ;)
What still baffles me out is how few subscriber you have.
In my opinion (a humble one) there's nothing wrong with your videos. They're all well spoken, entertaining and flawless.
You really deserve a lot of subs RIGHT NOW! ;D
Anyway, about the game...
You're, again, flawlessly spot on. One of my favorite review of IMOTE is the one Calum Fraser wrote here http://bit.ly/2mLgFYB on freegameplanet.com.
Quoting his words:
"In 'In Memory of the Eternity' you're not bad, although you can do bad things, and you're not good although can you do some good things – you are just a presence, an entity that makes things happen. During the game you experience life in all different shapes and sizes and impact them in unique ways – some mundane, some sad and some funny. In Memory of the Eternity is all about embracing the many aspects of life – horror, happiness and everything in-between. After-all, all life is a miracle and we should be thankful for every sad, mad, happy, surreal, grotesque and beautiful second of it."
So, as you can see, you've expressed exactly the same meaningful feelings Calum got from playing the game.
I'm glad the message got through. And I hope it'll reach more and more people, making them know why our lives are so important.
Thanks again for your support!
Well thank you very much for replying, I know one of the fears I have (as well as probably a lot of other YouTubers) is that the developer won't like the way you played it, so that in itself is a huge weight lifted off my chest.
As far as my subscriber count goes, your kind words mean the absolute world to me :D....but I couldn't disagree with you more. Now this is just my opinion, but I don't really like my commentary on the videos I make, which I guess is understandable considering I started not to long ago and I'm still very self-conscious about how I appear on camera. And I do work very hard to try and make sure everything is well put together and the sound balances out, so it feels so good to hear someone give such nice compliments about my videos. But I think me disagreeing with you is a good thing; if I was content with the content I was creating, I would never strive to better myself. So I guess while having a ton of subs would be absolutely amazing, it's kinda nice to not have that kind of pressure on me yet lol!
I look forward to seeing more of you in my feed though, so until then, take care. :D
P.S. Sorry if I completely butchered your name, pronouncing unique words is not a strong point for me hahaha
Yes, it is. As I've previously stated somewhere else, this quote from the freegameplanet review is quite spot on about the game's meaning:
"In In Memory of the Eternity you're not bad, although you can do bad things, and you're not good although can you do some good things – you are just a presence, an entity that makes things happen. During the game you experience life in all different shapes and sizes and impact them in unique ways – some mundane, some sad and some funny. In Memory of the Eternity is all about embracing the many aspects of life – horror, happiness and everything in-between. After-all, all life is a miracle and we should be thankful for every sad, mad, happy, surreal, grotesque and beautiful second of it."
To be honest, you just completed the picture with your insight about the butterfly effect, sice it is the main explanation of what "living in memory of the eternity" really means.
This is quite stunning I love this!
