A Memoir Blue is described as an interactive poem but is classified as an interactive fiction game where players will embark on a journey through Miriam's troubled childhood.
Miriam is an athletic swimmer who did not have the best of upbringings. Her very odd relationship with her mother plays a huge part in this game. Players will interact with the world around them in simple and subtle ways, such as stamping a train ticket or interacting with jellyfish that are lit up on the screen. Though the game is quite simple, the story in itself is both somber and sweet and sure to take players on a rollercoaster ride of emotions as they progress the story.
The game uses both 2D and 3D animations, bouncing between Miriam's childhood past in 2D and where she is in the present day in 3D so players can easily tell the difference between timelines.
