In the time-honoured Eremitage of St. Petersburg three precious paintings have been substituted by valueless copies. At first sight it appears to be just a normal art robbery but Colonel Ostankovic - head of the art robbery department in St. Petersburg - knows more: He suspects a mysterious secret society behind the robbery.
The game Memento Mori refers to the relatively unknown fraternity of the same name. Their most important objective is keeping certain paintings in secret. Therefore the secret society stashes artworks away for hundreds of years.
Colonel Ostankovic knows this and raises an alarm. He assigns the case to Larisa Ivanovna Svetlova - one of his best colleagues. Larisa contacts Maxim Durand as a ‘helping hand’. He is a former counterfeiter with very good and valuable connections to the art scene.
In the new adventure game Memento Mori two playable protagonists are waiting for the player. The player’s task is solving the secret about the art robbery, the mysterious secret society and its intrigues. Memento Mori is developed by the Czech team Centauri Production and will be published by dtp entertainment in autumn 2008.

Memento Mori is basically your run of the mill 3rd person point and click adventure game setup, story + objects + inventory + puzzles & clues = progress. But Memento Mori does have some nice differences here and there to make it more interesting & still very much a challenging game, but not too challenging. I myself usually have to revert to a walkthrough now and then on most PnC games, but so far i haven't needed to do so with Memento Mori, but it's still an enjoyment to play none the less.
The story puts you in control of two lead characters, Lara & Max, who seemingly have thy're own day to day lives both turned upside down, when their past connections with a Russian KGB style intelligence agency come back to haunt them. Both of them work with artwork & forgery, which is what the story revolves around, a bit like the Da Vinci code(monks included). However something that seperates Memento Mori from its competition is the fact that at certain stages of the game you can give 3 different response choices to other NPC's, some of the more important choices you make can actually change the outcome of the story all together. I have heard there are actually 8 different possible endings!
Visually the game looks very good, with highly detailed locations & realistic character movements within them. Although there are a few minor glitches here and there, for example Max's brother seems to have that drinking disorder from the guy off the Airplane movie, where he drinks through his eye socket :) the inventory & puzzles are very interesting, with some puzzles offering a complete 360 degree look around them for more clues(same with some inventory items) which is a nice change.Read more ›
As these sorts of games go, it's reasonably easy and most of the tasks are relatively easy to work out; there are a very few 'huh'?! moments. The game has some violence and gore and a few seemingly gratuitous tragedies which aren't really necessary to the plot.
As a nice touch, there are different endings depending on how you answer questions and what one or other of the main characters says during the game. Whether you have the patience to play through the game a second or third time is another matter, as it's a very linear game in which most tasks can only be done after doing a particular thing, such as looking at a newspaper.
If you like the 'Secret Files' series, this is worth a go, particularly if it's on sale.
FORTUNATELY, MY COMPUTER RECOVERED ITSELF.
