I would say this is probably my second favorite dating sim from Winter Wolves at the moment (the top one being Roommates).
The game can get a bit grindy as well. You have to raise certain stats to garner the interest of one of the love interests, balancing it with keeping your rest up, and increasing the clue stat to uncover the mystery. It is a shame they didn't do more with the stats to affect the game.
First, I liked Nicole; she isn't a perfect character, and I appreciate this is a girl who will try to get things done on her own (one problem I had with Always Remember Me is the character seemed to cry more than anything else).
Be warned this game is definitely darker in tone than other Winter Wolves dating sims, especially if you decide to dig further into the mystery surrounding the missing girl. Without trying to give away any spoilers, while it is darker, don't expect any R rated violence and blood.
The male love interests are a bit of a mixed bag, some definitely hitting stereotypes like jock and nerd, though the writing for them is still well done.
As seems to be par for the course for Winter Wolves Games, some people may find the price a bit high. Be aware Winter Wolves does hold several sales throughout the year, and this includes to their Steam games.
One disappointment I have is that the GirlxGirl version still isn't ready yet, though it is definitely in the works.
Finally, if you are new to Winter Wolves games, I highly recommend trying the demo available on the developer's website. This will get you used to the game, and give a good idea whether this is the game for you.
