Memoirs Of Magic is a charming, free blend of ’90s FPS and JRPG

Last night, Memoirs Of Magic launched, a free, cute and bouncy old-school FPS by Strawberry Octopus Productions that I’ve been following on and off for years. Inspired by Doom and early 32-bit JRPGs, it’s a large, semi-non-linear FPS and RPG hybrid, like an adorable, squishy version of Hexen. There’s seven characters to play as solo or co-op, lots of monsters to zap, punch, clobber and loot, and a distinctive chunky, pre-rendered aesthetic backed up with some similarly old-school polygon bosses and summons. Check out the launch trailer below, and grab the game here on Itch.
