Memento Mori: the art of trailers and a flaky release dates

11:30 PM on 07.10.2009 // Joseph Leray

I have to hand it to Centauri Productions, developers of Memento Mori, a new adventure game for the PC. Obscure (and often unremarkable) PC games are a dime a dozen, but they managed to catch my attention, owing mostly to the morbidly cool-sounding title.

The premise is a good, old-fashioned conspiracy: some precious works of art get stolen, and you have to Da Vinci Code your way through Europe, only to find a chilling religious secret that will likely rock the base of civilization. Y'know, basic stuff.

The premise might be a little cliché, but it's hits a sweet spot -- we all like conspiracies and shady religious orders. Besides, Got Game Entertainment (Memento Mori's publisher) released a cinematic trailer today that's pretty slick to boot. It doesn't show much gameplay -- which consists, I'm sure, of picking things up and looking at them bemusedly -- but it sets the tone nicely.

Memento Mori was supposed to be out on July 7th (which was, uhh, earlier this week), but, according to an e-mail from Got Game, it's being sorted out now. But, hey, if you dig on PC adventure games, you can't really go wrong for $30.
