An often used plot device where the main character wakes up and has lost all their memories. The game usually centers around getting your memory back or uncovering the events that lead to your confusion.
A hybrid of the Amnesia and Immortality concepts, an Amnesiac Immortal is an immortal who has lost his/her past memories. This could mean that they've lived so long that they've forgotten about much of their past, or that they may not even be aware that they are in fact immortal.
"Dear Diary, this entry is addressed to myself, given that soon I will likely suffer a bump to the head, drink a mysterious substance, be attacked by a psychic, or do one of many other things that can cause me to forget about what it is I'm writing right now."
Not really immortal. After he is killed, he becomes alive once again, although completely amnesiac. He seeks a way to get rid of his immortality.
Developed by BioWare for the first Baldur's Gate game, the Infinity Engine features an isometric perspective, pre-rendered 2D backgrounds and sprite-based characters.
This concept is for games in which at least one of the main characters is male.
Moral dilemmas presented to the player that often have a significant effect on the story or other characters.
Sometimes we will go a whole game without knowing the true name of a protagonist. Oftentimes, this is remedied by unique references being made towards the protagonist, such as "The Wanderer," "The Kid," or "The Man With no Name."
Pick Pocketing appears in many games as a way of obtaining information, items, or cash from people.
The concept of shifting between different planes of existence. (Light/Dark worlds, Material/Spectral Realms)
A portal is a hole in reality connected to another hole in reality, whether magical or scientific in nature, that allows a person to instantly travel incredibly vast distances simply by walking through one.
