Super short info
Field Guide to Memory is a narrative journalling game about a cryptid researcher who goes missing in the field. How will you, her protégé, carry on her legacy?
Field Guide to Memory is a journaling game about legacy, wonder, cryptids and the vastness of a human life, designed by Jeeyon Shim and Shing Yin Khor. Your mentor, the beloved and illustrious cryptid researcher Dr. Elizabeth Lee, has been officially declared dead five years after she went missing in the field. You will end the game with a physical artifact you've created yourself - your journal - in collaboration with us: your own field notes and documentation of your relationship with Dr. Lee. You will continue her legacy.
Field Guide to Memory is what the designers call both a keepsake game, and a connected path game. As a keepsake game, FGtM is designed to produce a beautiful, memorable artifact in gameplay. As a connected path game, it entails an open-ended social component (e.g. via social media) that invites sharing parts of your solo game (and the keepsake artifact you create) as well as interacting with other solo players.
