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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
