Explore the mind of a man stuck with his memories- only by forgetting the past can he advance.

Hope you enjoy :)



When I first started playing, I couldn't help but think: "Oh no, NG has way too many of these kinds of games!" but I kept on playing and I'm glad I did. The concept of having a "shadow" (if you will) that mimics the movements you've made and obliterates you by just touching it is new and makes this advennture through the vast whiteness of memories fun, new, interesting and just overall, worth the time.

The music is fitting, it sets the tone and seems to go along pretty well with the games theme. I thank you for making this game and uploading it here on NG and I hope you make another one soon!

It froze! It froze! I'm gonna cry ;A;

On lvl19 more or less (the infinite symbol), I gave up one try and waited for a retry, but then I see it wasn't restarting and all the clones froze in place. I could still move, but the clones didn't interact with me and the bar at the door kept decreasing without anything spawning from it.
I don't wanna play all this again! It's too hard :'c
Still, it's a wonderful wonderful game, so a little bug won't be worth a star less.
Also, loved it. Metaphoric games like this are my favorites and the way they are given is delightful most of the time. Thanks!


The title and rating say it all, so to avoid self-repetition, I'm just gonna say that I have no idea why the previous scores have been so....undesirable. Kickass game. Love the depth.

This game is amazing!!!!! I love it!!!!!!! :D Is not just because of the way it looks and it's well thought out concept, but the fact I make it difficult on myself on how I play the first time around.

*If you want to beat the game....keep it simple people! Thats what I did and I beat it in under 30 mins.

Really Good Game!!!! 10/10


The title says it all, awesome gameplay, great animation and graphics, I like how it was all balanced :) Genius.
