About the project

Days Lost is a narrative based puzzle game set inside the diary of a young woman that takes you on an unusual journey of recovering the memories of days that she’s lost. The game is ultimately about empathy and learning to appreciate little moments of life. Living in a time when the world came to a standstill because of a pandemic, memories are a reminder that time passes, that things change. This game is an opportunity to slow down and go on a journey where we can reminisce, recreate and relive the memories of days lost. Days Lost puts the player in the shoes of Natalia, going through her diary to fill in the gaps of her memory. Solving each puzzle brings back some fragments of Natalia’s memory revealing the wider memories of the occasion not mentioned in her diary. Tying the puzzles together is a story told in a colourful diary style.
