App description: G30 A Memory Maze is a unique and minimalistic take on the puzzle genre, where each level is hand-crafted and meaningful. Its a story of a person with a cognitive disorder, who is trying to recollect the elusive past before the disease takes over and everything will fade away.

How would you feel, if you couldnt recognise your life, your loved ones and even yourself? Could you find a light in the dark maze of human consciousness? Could you remember the story?


Each level sparks a little memory of the persons life. Its a two-part puzzle: a visual image of the memory and a telescopic text, that reveals itself with every step. You start with fragmented pieces of the picture attached to dashed lines. Dragging them like strings, you move parts of the image to restore it. In turn telescopic text reacts to your every step the closer you are to the solution, the more text unfolds. And if you're not moving in the right direction, the story piece too can drift away from the truth. You are indeed remembering adding details to the memory and forming a clear picture.


G30 is about memory and consciousness and what they mean for a human being. There are people around who are losing their ability to remember some kinds of mental diseases do that to a person. G30 shows how they see the world, how they feel about the past they cant remember and the reality they cant recognize.

What makes G30 – A Memory Maze special:

  • Telescopic text – every step in a puzzle changes the meaning of the story. It represents a transformation of memories when we add new details to them.
  • Unique puzzles that are deeply connected to the story – wrapped in minimalistic flat design.
  • The game shows how a person with a mental disease conceives reality. We see the world that slips away from the main character whose personality and memory will soon fade away together with the reason of his existence.
  • It’s a classic indie story. Everything is done solo – game design, coding, art, music.

This looks genuinely unique and really intriguing.
Very cool style and concept.

I’m adding it to my wish list so I remember to get it next time I’m buying, but I’d love to hear some impressions.
