“Nostalgia” is a narrative-driven adventure game about Alzheimer’s. Players embark on a journey through surreal memories, navigating familiar and unfamiliar spaces. By triggering dialogues, interacting with objects, and witnessing scenes, they navigate the dream from the unique perspective of an infant protagonist, only to later discover that this character is an elderly patient entangled in the labyrinth of Alzheimer’s.

Within the game, players intimately experience the poignant loops of recognition and oblivion, providing a powerful and immersive portrayal of the challenges associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

This educational piece serves as a compelling exhibit for younger generations, encouraging them to empathize with and care for seniors. Additionally, “Nostalgia” stands as a testament to the potential of using gaming methodologies in the treatment of Alzheimer’s patients.
