Bright Memory 1.0 was an example of a very affordable Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S launch title on day one this past November, and as of today, it's actually dropped in price by another 20% for the next two weeks.
So, what is it? Basically, Bright Memory is a "lightning-fast fusion of the FPS and action genres," created by the one-man development studio FYQD using Unreal Engine, originally releasing on Steam. It holds a 'Very Positive' rating on that platform, but the big downside is that it's only about an hour long, so it's more like a demo than a full game.
This shouldn't be confused with the planned 2021 release Bright Memory: Infinite, which is expected to be a much longer and more in-depth game whenever it launches later this year, and is looking visually spectacular.
It's a low price for a reason, then, but if you're looking for a quick action-RPG experience for just a few pounds / dollars on Xbox Series X and S, it might be worth a go. Let us know if you've tried Bright Memory in the comments below.
