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.
