Before I Forget is a short narrative tale in which players live a short period in the life of Sunita, a woman with early onset dementia. Exploring your house, you uncover glimpses of memories about the objects you discover, learning about her past and the path to her current life. It’s a short, one-sitting experience explores dementia in a sensitive manner. Here’s the official blurb from the itch.io page:
“A narrative exploration that examines a world where memories are constantly fading and jumbled. A game about dementia and what happens when you can't hold onto the things you've done or the people you've loved.”
Alzheimer’s Research UK is the foremost dementia-research charity in the UK, aiming to realize life-changing dementia treatment by 2025. If you’d like to donate directly, you can head over to the donation page here.
The Alzheimer’s Research UK partnership is only available via the itch.io store page here, but if you’re reading this after the deadline, you can also find Before I Forget on Steam here.
