Forgotten, Not Lost - A Kinetic Novel reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
A very sad Story about an old Man suffering from Dementia. ... It's really distressing how, from the Man's Point of view, you witness him not remembering the simplest but also most important Things. The Man lives with his Wife in an old Farm and several times he forgets, for example, that the old Cow they had is already Death. And yet he keeps going out and realizes-The good Cow doesn't exist anymore. Constantly you read how hard he has it to move and and and and ... The whole Game leaves you depressed and thoughtful. You should really use the Time you have with your Friends, Relatives ... Or you should generally enjoy the Youth-Unfortunately, this is all transient. --History is completed in under an Hour. It's a pure Story with No Choices. --Pictures are not many, but good--Soundtrack is also beautiful and fitting. Greeting

Forgotten, Not Lost-a good game, but it is very suffering from the expectation that it could be... But it didn't work out. At First, the story is intriguing: we see the world through the eyes of an elderly man suffering from dementia, and powerless to observe how he unsuccessfully fights with the disease and old age-forgets his beloved wife, can not bring the spoon to the mouth, not spilling all the contents, and Memories clings to the past, where he is still young, and all is well. A Sharp return to the sullen reality is felt like a bucket of cold water behind the collar-both for the hero and for the player. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1312375567 Plot is filled with memories of a couple: cheerful, romantic, important only for them two, and painful-sad, which would like to forget, but the story without them will not Full. As Theseus, who lost the guiding thread of Ariadne, the hero rushes on the edge of consciousness, trying to separate the truth from the dream, to remember his life again and keep it in mind for at least an hour. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1312374839 And Then the plot makes an unexpected turn, and these themes retreat into Twilight, and the novella of a realistic, bitter story with a bright hope at the end goes into the category of mysticism-very naïve and Poorly realized mysticism. I will not spoiler this change, although it is very easy to predict in the course of history. The Finale causes light light sadness and creates a smile, and yet it is not the same story that we originally read, which I expected to see. Sadly, but the story turn left me... Cheated. And disappointed. So I can't recommend it to other players. Forgotten, Not Lost-a short beautiful story with an interesting tie and naïve storyline, and her money, in general, is worth it. Just do not expect from her real depth and drama, as I waited, and will not be disappointed. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1312372775
