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.

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.

It was interesting to see stats incorporated into a VN. I know a few titles that have done this before but I've never had the chance to try them out.

Unfortunately, a balance needs to be struck when this comes into play. The game is too repetitive seeing as the options to raise the 4 stats are very limited. I went for the Eddy special ending and I barely used the gym. It turned out that blogging had a higher success rate for raising 2 discipline instead of 1. By the second half of the playthrough, I was watching TV all day just to pass the time and get to the next day (to progress things with Eddy).

Something else which bothered me was how cookie-cutter the males were. Aaron bored me to death and Lawrence is a huge drama queen. This part is purely subjective but out of the ordinary characters would have made this game 3x better.

2/5

When I first saw this game I must confess I made fun of it. I mean, a lot. Turns out a friend of mine gave me the game as a gift (his idea of a prank) and I thought I might play it as well. I found out I was wrong about it.
Although its not really the style of game I'm used to playing, I may say that the experience was quite enjoyable. The story is well written, although the overall game writing could use some more work (only a few outcomes to the actions you perform, making it a bit repetitive). The gameplay may feel a bit boring, specially because actual story parts only come up once a week and you will find yourself performing the same actions over and over again until an opportunity appears, but the moments you actually do something different make up for it. The soundtrack is not bad and suits the game just fine.
I recommend people actually give this game a try before they say it's bad. It's not bad, just a different and fun way to pass the time if you have nothing else to do or feel tired of slashing and shooting stuff. Still, the issues I mentioned may let some people down and kind of annoyed me throughout my gameplay so I'll give it a 7/10.

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).

I recommend getting this game on sale. It's fun, but I wouldn't pay full price for it mostly because it lacks replay value. However, all the boys are adorable and it's a very heartwarming dating sim! So, I recommend playing it, just when it's on sale :P

I gave this game a chance and it felt like a big waste of time in the end. Always Remember Me is a... Dating simulator I guess? The whole point of the game, is to fall in love with 1 of the 4 mans you can fall in love with or finish the game alone without a boyfriend.

The idea of the game always displeased me, it's really not my kind of game. I found the story nice and the graphics were really well done... But it ends there. The music and the main characters voice gets so annoying after a while! I heard my main character say "Awesome!" or "Yay!" about 1000 times while unlocking the 8 endings and I am not kidding!

All you do is eat, sleep, talk to the guy you want to end up with everyday, train up your stats (by clicking a button) and rinse/repeat. Really reminds me of Stick RPG, just WAY more grindy! Also there's a few spelling mistakes in the game and it's pretty short (It took me 5 hours to get the 8 endings...) So about 30 minutes to 1 hour for each playthrough...

I don't recommend this game whatsoever, especially with the $18 USD price tag!

I've only played through both endings with Aaron and I had a blast playing through it. A good strategy to this game is developing a pattern, but before it gets too repetitive (for me at least), I end up either with a new event or having to work on getting Amy's energy back up. Even when I get held back by Amy's energy, I could easily get both routes finished in time. This game was extra fun playing while on Skype with my boyfriend as he did male voices and I did female voices, so if you wanna make this game extra enjoyable, get a friend to help with the voices. Also, some of the dialogue is a bit weird a certain points, but when you're doing voice overs, it's a ball of hilarity.

I've only played roughly 2 Hours of this Game, But So-Far i've enjoyed it so much.
Always Remember Me is Beautifully Written. Funny, Sad.. Plenty of emotions will be produced through-out playing this game.
With Multiple-Endings this game also has ALOT Of Re-playability.
The Soundtrack and Artwork is so Beautiful I HAD To get the Deluxe DLC. I Have the whole Soundtrack on my Ipod and it never gets old.

My Final thoughts on this game is it's probably one of the best Story-Driven Indie Games i've played in a while and I Give props to the developers for bringing this game to Steam. Thank you.

Game Score:
10/10

I love life sim and dating sim games, however this one felt so shallow. You never really got to know the main character (whose name is Amarantha...what?), or any of the characters really, they all just comes off as very bland.
I have finished the game twice, once with the alone ending and another with the normal ending. Both endings were equally uninspiring and in both endings there was text referring to past events that never occurred in my games.
The music was repetitive and got super annoying after a while, not to mention the opening song had very grating vocals.
To put the icing on the cake (or the sprinkles on the ice cream if we want to stay with Always Remember Me's theme) the little comics in the extras section were completely cringe worthy. "I LOVE YOU!", "Oh noes!". Please stop with the poor attempts at humour and the out of date internet slang, as a reader I actually felt second hand embarrassment.
With the exception of the chibis the art was pleasing so that's one thing this game had going for it.
I hate to sound so negative but there really wasn't much I enjoyed about this game. For a story that has so much to do with writing it's kind of sad how poor the plot/dialogue is, however I acknowledge that writing fiction is difficult, especially when there are multiple endings. I hope that the writer puts in more practice and tries again, I just don't think I'll be spending money on their next attempt.

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.

I really liked this game. The soundtrack is amazing it has a nie story for a dating sim. Of course it may get repetitive but that's wat makes it good it makes it seem like you are really living it by having to work. Also you do fun things and study to raise your levels, and make conversation to raise your relationship with guys. Also the game is casual so you can just relax and play this game. This is one of my favorite pc games by far and I would recommend buying it and te soundtrack. I'd give this game a 9.5/10

Decent enough game, I enjoyed it, even if it was a little simplistic at times.
Art is gorgeous, and storylines are nice enough, but sometimes endings don't entirely make sense/ gives no reason for ditching Aaron most of the time.
I actually liked Hugh's storyline the most, even though I disliked his character initially, with his events his storyline feels the most complete and his endings make sense and don't go OTT.
Good game all in all c:
(I bought it on sale)

A pretty nice decent dating sim with pretty cute artwork. The story is a neat premise, the main character's boyfriend has amnesia so she can either stick it out with him or pursue three other dudes. The characters themselves aren't annoying, but they don't really stick out that much either. That's unfortunately because you don't actually get to see most of their personality unless you pursue them as a love interest and even then you only get a few choice-related events with them. Then again, maybe it was meant to be that way since they're suppose to be simple characters and not soap opera cliche characters. Although, its neat how the game incorporates morale and energy levels in it, and its pretty simple to figure out how to best balance out those stats.

As far as this review goes, I've only played through Aaron's and Lawrences's normal and special endings. Aaron's special ending was the only ending from those four that had a smooth transition for its end relationship. The other four endings just pop up abruptly once you max out the guys' love meters, almost as if they were an after-thought in the story designing process. And I'm unsure if those endings take place right there or later on in the future. Don't get me wrong, I still had fun playing the game, but those ending transitions needs a bit of work.

I'd recommend picking the game up when its on sale if you want a nice short dating sim.

The main story is somewhat original but the characters and their relationships are too shallow for my taste. The gameplay is utterly repetitive and boring. I'm not used to female perspective in dating sims so it was a little awkward for me. A girl would definitely enjoy this game more than I did. If you want to play this that badly, I suggest you to get the mobile version and give it a go when you're on a long bus trip or something.

So far I have played two hours of this game. I was expecting great cutscenes,good storyline, and more interaction between characters. All I got was very little cutscenes and alot of repetitive game play. I mostly went to work everyday and tried to read to Aaron. I got bored near the end and just clicked over and over to get it over with. Do not waste your money on this game..I payed 17.99 bucks when I could of played a free game made with flash! Only thing I liked was some the drawings. Such a let down and I expected more.
