In Bright Memory Infinite you are pal 3D in the shoes of Sheila. Someone who works for the government’s SRO group, they protect the world. Her boss calls her on her day off and is called in to take on some bad time traveling army guys, who have somehow summoned/created a black hole. Now you must just kill everything that moves.
The story in Bright Memory Infinite is basically non-existent. You are put in Random areas and shoot and slash things. But the setup of the story could have been decent with exploring what’s happening and why.
Bright Memory Infinite is a high octane shooter that has everything a fan would want. Cool looking guns, a sword, gravity glove, wall running, dodge moves, and an upgrade system. That combines into a generic linear shooter, that like 2 or 3 hours of playtime.
The only thing I could think of was this looks like a tech demo. Bright Memory Infinite looks absolutely beautiful, plays beautifully and is a great technical achievement by such a small team. However, from a play standpoint, it does nothing new. And has every cool thing that’s been in shooters.
Overall, Bright Memory Infinite is a fantastic achievement for any single development team, from looks and technical aspect. But from a gameplay view, it feels like a demo as there is too much happening.
However, it is worth playing and showing what this dev team can achieve
