kioku: a simple and customizable memory game
22 May 2021
Unfortunately one of the parents of a friend of mine was diagnosed with Alzheimer. The good news is that it's still at the first stage so keeping the brain active will help a lot.
The classic memory game with covered cards can be useful, but I thought that it could be more pleasant with cards showing something close to affections, for example photos or drawings of what you care about.
kioku (記憶) — it means memory in Japanese — it's a memory game where you can create your own levels released under the GPL3 license. I had to make it run also on Android so I used Python with the kivy framework to support both Linux and Android.
Here a screenshot of the game screen on Linux playing a custom level made with photo of cats1:
