As someone who once had my short-term memory wiped out for a bit following a bad concussion suffered while playing intramural flag football, I can tell you that amnesia is no fun. Amnesia as a plot device though? That’s a storytelling mine that’s been tapped for decades, and it’s sprouting up once again in DeNA’s new free-to-play action RPG Cross Horizon, which launched today for both iOS and Android devices.
A product of the studio Marvelous AQL, Cross Horizon has players coming to the aid of Aurora, a fairy who has lost her memory. With the threat of the Bandit King lurking, it’s up to you and Aurora to go on missions and battle dangerous enemies to uncover his true intentions before it’s too late.
The game features tap-and-slash controls, customizable weapons and armor and multiplayer functionality that permits friends to be called to aid in battle. Best of all, you’ll probably remember what happened while you play, even if Aurora never does. You can download Cross Horizon for free from the iOS App Store or Google Play. And remember what Calculon has taught us: amnesia is something to be used as motivation, not something to be feared!
