The Missing: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories is a puzzle-platformer game created by Hidetaka Suehiro (commonly referred to as SWERY) and developed by White Owls Inc. The game focuses on the story of two college students named Emily and J.J. who take a camping trip on Memoria Island. During the trip, Emily goes missing and J.J. begins a trip to go find her, and in the process is struck by lightning, finding out that she cannot die as her body regenerates from whatever horror or pain it is inflicted with. The game uses this mechanic to make it so the player character must bend and break J.J.’s body accordingly to solve in-game puzzles.
