LETHE is a 2.5D platformer in which Alan Zane, a loving husband and father, remembers for the last time his most treasured memories. Alan is already at an advanced stage of Alzheimer's disease and will have to fight against the monster within his brain which tries to erase his memories. Dive into those shattered moments in this original platformer. Solve mind trick puzzles. Understand better the struggle of this disease. Realize the most important; the result of one's life.
Alzheimer's disease is a neurodegenerative disease and it is incurable. This sentence is devastating but we are trying to show a complex situation from two different points of view. While neurodegenerative process affects the victims, their families are extremely touched by the evolution of the disease. Initially, small changes in the behavior of the victim might not be perceived as a huge threat. However, the disease can not be cured and the symptoms get worse and at some stage the victims start forgetting even their closest family members. Meanwhile, what is happening inside the mind of the sufferer is a mystery. How can the memories of somebody just disappear? Why some memories persist and others are deleted? Is the personality of the sufferer affected? The game we are developing has a clear message: the victims have a monster in their minds, but they are still able to love and be loved. The leitmotiv of the game is expressed by this conversation: Do you know who I am? I don't, but I know I love you very much
