Desta: The Memories Between to release in 2022
ustwo’s Desta: The Memories Between will be available on multiple platforms later down the line but will be starting exclusively in partnership with Netflix sometime in 2022 as part of the streaming giant’s ambition to broaden its content.
“Through unique gameplay and unforgettable characters, the game explores themes such as introspection and self-reflection, centering around the main lead character, Desta, as they navigate through a dreamlike world,” a press release explains.
It continues: “As Desta falls asleep every night, they find themselves entering into a mysterious and infinite dream-world: filled with glowing balls to throw, shattered remnants of locations past, and vague memories. Players will flow in etheric environments to take on enemies and bosses through a ball game in this quirky character-driven adventure. “
It seems like the game will incorporate popular roguelike elements into its world, mentioning titles such as the critically acclaimed Hades as part of its inspiration, and ustwo clearly want players to go on a journey of deep discovery and exploration.
Desta: The Memories Between is described as “the deepest, most ambitious and most replayable title” from ustwo games yet and we’re excited to see how the project progresses.
