I’ve never forgotten a face, I’ve never jumbled up an anecdote, and I’ve certainly never misplaced a fancy hat! At least, not until I unwisely renovated my mind palace. Now I cannot find anything! Where does this corridor lead? Who are these eerie-faced folk and why do they seem oddly familiar? I don’t remember choosing that wallpaper. And wasn’t there a certain something I needed in order to complete my outfit… Oh! I simply MUST remember what it was and where I put it!

Lost inside your own mind palace, the objective is to locate the fanciest of fancy hats and retire to a dreamy garden party where you can effortlessly display this magical titfer.

The mind palace consists of a large number of scrolling mazes and arenas of peculiar architecture, including the fabled Moontower and Mouldsmoth Hall, each containing countless rooms. Within the rooms you may find items of Occult Haute Couture to add to your endless wardrobe. Collect and utilise to your best advantage. Be wary of slamming doors and distant voices.

And try not to forget yourself.
