Lost Memories Dot Net
Return to a Facebookless internet
You might know Nina Freeman for her adventure game Cibele: a game about love, sex, and the internet. She explores similar territory with LostMemories, a collaboration with Aaron Freedman. Like Cibele, it’s set inside a sort of fake operating system—in this case a pretend internet browser that allows you to ‘chat’ with some of teenage Nina’s friends, to tinker with her website design and to visit a variety of fan sites. There’s a love triangle at the center of the story but even if you’re not interested in that, LostMemories is worth a look for how it recaptures a memorable period in the internet’s history.
