    Your Memento in the Game (And Portrait!)

    Close Your is made up of hundreds of moments, each separated by a blink. Once we have the final list, we will consult with you to pick a moment that will be dedicated to you. You'll send us a photo of a meaningful object (a toy from your childhood, a family heirloom) and we'll create a 3D model of it, put your initials on it, and place it somewhere in the scene. You also get one of our very limited custom profile picture digital portraits!
