This game is one of those cases when I wish I could choose a neutral rating. It's not stellar, but it's not bad either; still, I can't recommend it with clear conscience.

First off, the story is nice, if bland. You won't remember it (pun... mostly intended) as something that gave you All The Feels, but it's cute enough to play through when you have some downtime. The characters are hardly complex, but mostly pleasing, and the dialogue seems fine, if you keep in mind that it's a short game without any deeper moments other than Aaron's amnesia (which presents an interesting situation that is handled okay, but could've been developed more).

I also like the art well enough - I don't really see why some people seem to have a problem with it, since it's very nice imho and I've seen way, way worse sprites and CGs in some other VNs I played.

There is, however, an issue that ultimately led me to the negative review: the game mechanics. I'm not talking about stat raising - an element which I personally hate, given how annoying it turns in every (however good) game, but I understand why it's used. I'm talking about the fact that key scenes with each of the characters trigger based on approval, but there's still a random element to WHEN you get them. That means that if you raise your relationship points (or other stats!) too quickly, you can easilly miss out on even scenes that are essential to each route. People playing otome games want to have their hard-earned confession scenes served on a silver plate, not accidentally skipped while only getting the happy epilogue. And yes, that happens in ARM - Lawrence's route is the best example.

All in all, you might have fun with this game, but only if you are willing to pace your play carefully so you don't miss out on anything. And I definitely wouldn't get it for the full price; I bought it on sale (75% off) and that's about as much as the game is worth.

This is the most terrible stat boosting dating sim I have ever played, and is an insult to the visual novel genre. Thanks to this terrible game all of my steam suggestions are terrible western visual novels. I will definitely always remember Always Remember Me for the scourge it is and the plague it has placed upon my steam recommended games.

Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
~T.S. Eliot


This is the first visual novel that I've played from Winter Wolves, and I must say that I'm not impressed. Always Remember Me is an otome game with a somewhat ordinary concept, annoyingly stereotypical characters, suicidally repetitive choice actions and a scarcity of events about the main story to keep you interested. At this point, I must confess that I've completed my first playthrough quite easily and gave in a reaction of "seriously?" at the first ending that I've discovered. During my second playthrough... I got bored and wandered off to do something else, forgetting the game running. When I remembered that I was playing the game, I came back and gave in 2 more hours of the gameplay to collect the missing achievements - a.k.a. fast-forwarded through some repetitive actions and only read event dialogues. Thus, my gaming time.

Let me introduce you to Amarantha - called as Amy by friends - literature student, part time worker in an ice-cream parlor and a boringly plain young woman that you could define in 3 adjectives completely: fickle, stereotypical and automated. At the start of our gameplay, Amy has a motorcycle accident alongside her boyfriend Aaron - which fills in the young, rich and handsome stereotype. Amy survives with some moderate wounds but alongside a slight concussion, Aaron now has amnesia. He doesn't remember a thing about Amy. At this point, it is up to us to either patiently wait by our amnesiac boyfriend to help him regain his memories or run after a limited selection of other handsome young man who might become equally interested with us - namely Lawrence, Eddie and Hugh; appropriately filling in the shy cutie, the workaholic overachiever and the charming artist stereotypes in that order.

So... As you may observe, our heroine hypothetically overcomes the trauma of losing "the love of her life" quite easily. She - and any other cute boy that she may end up with - are written really badly. They all consist of stereotypes with shallow reactions, superficial dialogue options and boringly unimaginative personalities. One could claim that I shouldn't expect much literary narrative or originality from an otome game to begin with, but without the visual novel quality of an interesting story or interesting enough characters - or at least decent narrative - I most certainly see no reason to spare my time specifically to experience a couple cute pictures of pretty anime characters kissing and some really lame dialogue note at the side. Sorry, but this is what the game eventually ends up being so.

For the gameplay: you have 4 romance options, 4 stats that you can raise through completing more or less the same actions for a period of 3 months. Each stat concerns one of the romance option as a target. You wake up, work in the parlor, visit the romance option, raise stats with a limited selection of actions, sleep and repeat. Oh, and once in a while you stumble upon an event where you'll get a relationship raise if you are to choose the right one in the dialogue options. Eventually, you hit an ending for the boy that you picked, witness a cheesy "happily ever after" scene and carry on. Nothing else. No surprise factor, no real challenge, no in-depth story. Nothing. You repeat the same action for the millionth time while getting harassed by the endless repetition of the same 8 note soundtrack to be rewarded by a cute picture and 3-4 sentences telling how happy you ended up. Brilliant.

Many would blame me to already know what I would get myself involved with when I picked an otome game to play, but with games from Cheritz or Hanako Games of the same genre in the market, you really should skip this if you are not getting it in a bundle, like super cheap. Else, consistently avoid this one to enjoy another VN or otome with more imaginative gameplay or at least better character concepts and/or story.

I wanted to recommend this game. But seriously… I can’t.

The art style is pretty, the backgrounds were also pretty.. But the characters lack emotions and personality. Everything is just.. Plain. Simple. Waaaay too simple… The story itself was kinda cliché but I tried to give it a chance. I regret my previous decision…

There are irrelevant characters (like Amy’s aunt), and to be honest, it’s all about status raising. I’m not a fan myself of games like that but depending on the stories, characters and events, it can be done right. But Always Remember Me lacks ALL THAT. The events (where you know, you can actually interact with the character you want to date) are so short and they happen so rarely. And they are just.. Bad. Too simple. You can’t feel a connection between the characters.

The endings, both normal and special, are too fast and… Meh. I honestly cleared the whole game just because I wanted all the achievements. :-/

Oh, and there’s the music. It’s not bad, honestly. But it plays so often and SO LOUD that it pierces my ears and makes my brain scream in agony. Also the instrumental version (or whatever version that suddenly plays when you’re going to the icecream shop) sounds so out of place. Makes no sense, I don’t know how to explain… And the main song keeps playing over and over, at weird times and… Jesus. What a mess.

3/10. I only gave 3 points because the art style, like I said, is actually pretty. This could have been a good or at least decent game, but unfortunately… It isn’t. It’s bad. Ain’t worth even on sale.

... an interactive novel - complete with shonky writing and wonky artwork... normally these kinds of 'experiences' can be complete within a couple of hours and benefit from finishing all in one session... very generic, but at least (from the first half and hour) it doesn't appear too exploitative of females... I suspect more time will confirm this... and it has its own theme tune / pop song... what's not to like?!

This game makes you want to forget your boyfriend who forgot you with 3 other boys 10/10. Besides that its acually funny yet feelsy at the same time. I'd buy it and prefer it to others.

This game has a stat-based progression system to get through the story and woo a boyfriend, but it just boils down to clicking the optimal activities every day to get the stats you are looking for. The plot is basically nonexistent and none of the characters are memorable. Also there is no option to skip seen text so even replaying this for different endings is a chore.

Steam has better dating simulators and you should exhaust all other options before deciding to buy this one.

So this game, I actually really enjoyed. The achievements weren't too difficult to earn, but still had a challenge to them, the artwork was charming, and the storyline was, well, it wasn't half bad. I think the price for this game is definitely too steep, and I'd recommend only buying it if it's on sale. This visual novel is a 7/10 for me because I really enjoyed some of the elements like having a consistent responsibility and an air of determination to get certain stats up for the different guys.
Definitely could use improvement in the storyline, and the odd leveling up sometimes just not paying off. But overall, it was a fun time.

Always Remember Me is telling the story of Amy, whose boyfriend got into an accident and doesn't remember her. You follow her life through her summer work and her hobbies. It's up to you to choose if she will make Aaron (her boyfriend) fall in love with her again or if she will find love elsewhere.

You have Lawrence, her coworker, Hugh, the stylist and Eddy, the doctor that can replace Aaron in her heart, however, to unlock a romance ending (or the special romance), you'll have to have a very good relationship with the chosen one and the main characteristic that will unlock the special ending at a highest rate. For example, everything related to sport will help you for Eddy while the creativity will be useful for Hugh.

You choose your activity and how you spend your money but keep in mind that the game will be repetitive. Always Remember Me, after a while, is boring as you're only upping the stats you want and do the same activity each day and you try to improve the relationship.

While the graphics are correct, the soundtrack is very very good, like the main song.

On the other side, it has a lot of replayability as you want to see the other endings, despite the repetitive gameplay.

Always Remember Me stays a nice VN, though I would buy it in a bundle or discounted.

While you were riding the motorcycle with your boyfriend, you have a traffic accident. Your boyfriend tries to protect you and ends up with a head injury and amnesia. He has no memory of you. So far it sounds okay.
But the problem with the game is, it quickly turns into endless stat grinding. You have to do the same things and visit the same places trying to increase your stats and relationship points.

Pros:
+ Nice artstyle
+ Nothing else I can think of :D

Cons:
+ It lacks decent storyline and conversations.
+ Game is mostly about grinding stats and it becomes boring real fast.

This game is just bad.
... More details, seriously? Morbidly curious, huh?

Well, alright. First stop aesthetic. It's bland, no personality, nothing that stands out compared with every other visual novel on the market. Now it's not ugly either but that's not quite good enough to be able to support the awful story.

I mean, there is nothing to salvage here. It starts stupidly, continue stupider and finish in the stupidest fashion possible.
You have to perform repetitive actions every day which doesn't bring anything to the overall experience and just artificially lengthen the playing time.
The characters are all the worst version of a anime cliché possible. The dialogues are trash.
I know it sounds harsh, but trust me, playing this game is harsher. There is not even a worthwhile decision to be made.

Look, if you played and loved every visual novel in the world and have zero expectation, maybe consider it for bundle price. Otherwise run away.

I had high hopes for this game because the plot sounded really interesting to me. But once you get into the game its more about micromanaging her, rather than focusing on the boys. This game really feels like a chore. I just want more boys. rather than dealing with her issues the whole time. But i finished all endings.. not happily. Its just okay..If you're really into micromanaging and visual novels, pick it up. otherwise i would suggest a skip.

This is not a bad game yet it is not the best one I've seen, you have choices but after some time the game get boring and you'll probably give up on trying every single ending. You build your character and do some daily tasks and at this point it reminds me a RPG.
The drawing is ok and story is good, you play as a teenager whose boyfriend had an accident and is suffering from amnesia, and your objective is to decide your future, if you date one of the characters or not and if so, which one.
Fun fact: you have to compete with your boyfriend ex :p
I still think you should be able to play as a male a chose your girlfriend but still...
It doesn't worth the full price but still worth playing.

It's a dating simulation game .
You play a teenager who'll have a scooter accident with her boyfriend, it's him who'll have to stay at the hospital.

Waiting for his return you live your daily life with work, a few activities. You work on a romance with either a man among 3 or you try to make your boyfriend remember you. His ex will try to lure him so she's an enemy.
Depending on who you want to romance you have to get an amount of points in a type of ability.

Don't be exhausted or you'll progress less in earning abilities or do few job and get less paid.

There's a rock song/video clip you can watch and sing as a bonus. There's a simple and another developed ending with each of the guy and an "alone" one.

The game timing lasts 3-4 months, you have to respect it in earning the ability and pleasing your love in answering well to/ in front of him to get its ending!

Overall it's a rather good game.

Bien que n'appréciant pas du tout les novels que j'entasse sans jamais y jouer (plus d'une dizaine jamais lancés)... je dois bien reconnaitre que celui-ci est probablement le plus intéressant avec "Hatoful Boyfriend" et "Backstage Pass" en accès anticipé.

Le côté négatif c'est le prix de 17.99€ qui est à mon humble avis disproportionné comparé à l'investissement, la durée de vie très courte (quelques heures) et la rejouabilité presque inexistante.
Enfin il y a des novels à plus de 30€... et je ne vais pas pleurnicher étant donné que je l'ai eu d'un bundle Greenlight donc au environ de 1-2€.

Si vous aimez les novels mettez-le sur votre liste de souhaits pour surveiller un % intéressant.

What if the person you planned to spend the rest of your life with suddenly, abruptly, really soon like, forgot who you are because of a car accident? Same here, I don’t have no money for doctor bills. It’s time to dump em’ and find a new squeeze.

You play as this red head chick who is hella randy and it is your job to make her experience “true love.” That’s right guys, no knockers, no hooters, no lady berries, and no love buttons. This chick keeps her shirt on the whole time and the guys don’t pressure her to put out. Not only does this take away from the realism (‘cause the libido of anime dudes IS real) but one potential love interest is a shy guy with glasses. THE SHY GUY WITH GLASSES DOES NOT GET FRIEND ZONED BY DEFAULT. I couldn’t believe it either. I did everything in my power to put this fool in his place, but then I… fell in love with him.

His long hair glistened in the sun and this was accentuated by his inability to shower because his hair retained its natural oils. When his baggy bloodshot eyes met mine I looked away of course. When I looked back to see if he was still staring at me, he was. It was like his eyes never left me. That he would never leave me.

This game completes me. 10/10

This game has its flaws, but if you can look past them it's a nice playing experience. Great art, nice characters, dramatic, but realistic enough backstory and 9 different kind of endings (if you count 'alone' ending to be one). Music is also nice, but for my taste maybe a little too repetitive. After all, it's a really beautiful and kind of cute game.

How ever there is a big problem with this game. After a little while playing it really starts to repeat itself, like REALLY repeat. When you become familiar with how all of it works you're just basicly waiting for some random events to trigger and your friendship to increase with your chosen character. Also you have to know who you are going after from the day one in this game. Otherwise you'll just run out of time and end up getting alone ending. I can't say much about endings, because I haven't played all of them yet. But from what I've seen... they're not that strong and feel kind of flat.

But well, after all I still must say that it's okey game. I've played better visual novels before, but can't really say it's bad either. If you like visual novels then I'd say give it a try.

Eat, sleep, work, read your amnesian boyfriend books - repeat

This has to be the first Winter Wolves game which really annoys me.

For a Visual novel the story/characters are really thin, your progress through it is nearly non existant, which in the end makes a repetetive grind through the always same few stations you have in the game with always the same actions and nearly no story progress.
Mix to this a similiar annoying music background and you have a really bland gaming experience.

Short review, but there isn´t much more to this game.

I am not gay but this game made me want to flirt boys.

P.S.
If only they wore helmets while riding, this game will not happen for sure.

All my other reviews are jokes, but I really can’t joke about this game. It’s a dating sim that seems like a cute way to pass the time but in the end just feels like a whole repetitive exercise about how much you can read into non-existent conversations and relationships with little foundation.

Always Remember Me is quick to use all the big heart-tugging elements, with a somewhat forbidden relationship, a protagonist with dead parents, an amnesiac boyfriend, a manipulative ex-girlfriend, and even a struggling humanities student who is just trying to pay her tuition. The story is all very heavy-handed, never really bothering to get into the "why" or "how" of anything or anyone. But that doesn't really matter anyway, since scenes are so few and far between – and so incredibly brief when they even happen – that the story barely exists. It's not uncommon for Always Remember Me to just skip scenes altogether, passing over entire conversations and evenings out, and swiftly arriving at the ending, leaving you to fill in any romance or, well, anything at all that happened.

The sim elements feel pretty unnecessary. On easy difficulty you can spam the activity that gives you the most stats, while on harder difficulties you scramble around to figure out a strategy. The emphasis seems to be more on the “sim” element than the “dating”, and for that it’s not too fun. The relationship building part of the game doesn’t feel substantial, and if the overall aim is to grind numbers for those parts then I have to ask what purpose it serves, or if the result even makes up for the grind.

At the end of the day, Always Remember Me isn't a bad game, it just falls flat on effort in the wrong places. The plot relies on shallow dramatic backstory to give characters a false sense of depth while the gameplay is a pure grind and almost without purpose. For me, there’s not enough payoff to justify grinding through numbers to reach an ending, and that makes this game a really dull experience.

As a huge fan of dating sims, I've already experienced many different types of Otome Games / Visual Novels and yet, I have to say that I was quite disappointed by Always Remember Me. I had some expectations before playing this game since the visuals seemed fairly appealing and I actually wasn't disappointed by the (few) CGs - they were drawn well and the character designs weren't bad either. But that's it, everything else made me - bluntly said - dislike the game.

The characters' sprites during the cutscenes looked weird (e.g. when Amy cried her posture/gesture didn't change at all, her posture stayed the same throughout the game and the same with the other characters). Additionally, the game seemed to focus more on the stat raising mechanic than the romance plot itself, leading to some annoying and boring "save & load" back and forth since you want to raise your stats as soon as possible in order to get both endings easily. Lastly, the endings to every route in this game. Briefly said, they were also very disappointing. A short cutscene with CG as a reward and during those cutscenes, you couldn't really feel the love between the protagonist and her final love interest - you just couldn't feel this achievement which you want to have as the player in every dating sim.

All in all, I'm glad they took another step forward to localising dating sims in the west and I don't regret buying ARM since it helped supporting the localisation. Still, I probably wouldn't have bought it for another reason.

After finishing the main guy's route, I didn't feel compelled to continue playing any of the other routes. It felt bland, uninspired and didn't leave much of an impression on me. It's superficial at best and it's all about stat raising and not enough story. Though the art looks well done it's additionally let down by the UI which I firmly disliked and didn't allow me to fully immerse myself in it. Everything is cookie-cutter and failed to employ cliches effectively and I won't be looking forward to any Winter Wolves games in the future.

Alright, before I begin I would like to state that I specifically held off on writing a review for this game until AFTER I had finished every route this game had to offer (100%'d it) in hopes that It would help change my mind on how bad this game really was. Unfortunately It didn't, and as a matter of fact, I could even go as far as saying I dislike it even more now that I have.

First of all, this game should not have the privilege of being categorized as a dating sim but rather as a ice cream shop sim since that's what you do for literally half of the game which becomes more and more tedious the more you play the game since it limits your progress to 1/4th the speed. In fact, if you were to take all of the useless grinding for money and stat boosting, the game would be cut down to 10 min per route.. Max.

Another bad point of this game is the fact that you have to deal with the most annoying game soundtrack I have probably heard so far, not only does it not suit the game at all, but it also plays in a loop over and over again which becomes highly annoying and sure, you could argue how muting the sound would probably fix that issue but it only makes it really awkward and boring. I would also like to point out the fact that I’m not touching the sound effects, or the lack there of, since I could talk about them for days.. woohoooooooooooo!!11

+Fun fact: This game is heavily Rng based meaning you will continuously find yourself talking to one of the male protagonists and not making any progress at all for days on end.

Lastly this "game" is definitely not worth 18 dollars, the thought of it even being worth more that 10 is ridiculous to say the least. If you want a really good dating game go purchase “Hatoful Boyfriend” which has great replay-ability (Which is a game I will be doing a review of later) and also has characters you can end up connecting with. You will also save 8 dollars which you can save to your steam wallet or buy some other game with. Now, I bought this game in a bundle so I got my money’s worth, but i would advice not to get this unless it's in one again.

This game would only be suitable for huge fans of dating sims or hardcore game collectors such as myself
In conclusion.. I wouldn't recommend this game even if i was getting paid to do so.
I rate it a 10/10 - IGN

I enjoyed this vn/otome..but there were some major flaws that made it all just feel a little lacking. The ending was the biggest flaw. I got both the special and normal ending for Eddy and I felt zero difference between the two. There also was absolutely no build up to the ending.

The male characters just sort of eventually confess to Amy, with not much having happened between them since this game focuses just a little, little too much on stat building...and then the player is left a little confused as to whether or not Amy is actually dating the love interest (because even if a different guy confesses to hear and she says something like "I think I have feelings for you, too", she still visits her boyfriend with Amnesia at the hospital and gets upset when his ex girlfriend is there).

After that, once you either fill the 'love meter' or play up until the 'deadline', it just skips straight to a short ending scene with your hubby without any build up or conflict in the story (besides the whole amnesia storyline).

Despite all of this, I did very much like three of the love interests. The boyfriend with amnesia was a little too plain to be so much trouble for my tastes..but these bishies were still interesting and the sort that plenty of people can get attached to (such as myself).

Amy, the heroine, is also very likable and the game has fantastic artwork (not to mention a fairly nice soundtrack which I better liked by purchasing the deluxe edition of the game).

All in all, not the greatest otome and it didn't handle the stat building particularily well (and I think the new game Backstage Pass did a better job of that..), but it was cute and charming.

It just is NOT the sort of thing if you've played a lot of visual novels or otome games. There's very little text and it's mostly stat building (which is great if you prefer it that way..I just am used to reading a lot and making tough decisions in my vn's and otomes).

Always Remember Me is a nice dating sim, starring a female protagonist.

As those familiar with the genre would expect, after a brief set of introductory events the game gives you nearly complete freedom of what to do and whom to meet. There are only four potential romantic partners, though they are fairly well-detailed and likable. Protagonist herself, Amy also gets a lot of characterization rather than just being a stand-in for the player. And your every action, successful or not, gets a description of how it went, done in Amy’s quirky style!

Also as expected of a dating sim, your character has several stats, and doing your daily job for money as well as variety of activities to increase one or more stat is integral part of the gameplay.

Storytelling-wise, there are some lovely moments, but nothing truly touched me as some moments in other visual novels and dating sims did. Overall, I enjoyed the story well enough, although I wouldn’t call it that great either.

I can recommend Always Remember Me to all fans of dating sims. And those unfamiliar with this genre but interested in a nice casual game may consider giving it a try as well.

At first there's a variety of things to do and plenty of dialogue, but once that's over you're simply playing a game to slowly increase a girls morale and skills by reading books, writing a blog, buying more books and going to work.

It's... it's really boring.

It's ok, i guess...nothing special. Still I don't recommend it...it's too expensive just for 5.6h playtime [all storylines]. Furthermore this VN has a really really really plain story. :x
