A downloadable Visual Novel for Windows, macOS, and Linux

You wake up in hospital.
Your name is easy to remember- why you're here, isn't.
There are 28 days unaccounted for in your memory.
The doctor gives you two words.
Retrograde amnesia.
The longer you are awake, the more questions you have.
Why are the police involved?
What happened on the rooftop.
Why did you fall.
The longer they spoke, the more you understood.
There was a death that night- locked away in the memories you no longer had.

The idea for this game is a high-school, romance mystery based around 'Amnesia'.

Both Jaden and Cameron are romance-able, and both tie into the amnesia in their own way.

I wanted to explore the natural healing process of amnesia, in the way that memories are randomly 'regained' and it can be difficult to discern if they are real or not.

Because of this- the choices in-game will not only affect your relationship with both boys, but also how you perceive what you 'remember'.

This demo is due to the combined efforts of

Red-Baby on sprites and friend-duty,

Shortycake on chibi,

Alteredgingerr on CGs

Akka on a surprise for the players,

and Pacermist on writing, coding and all the small things (not by Blink-182).

(ADDITIONAL NOTE: The music used belongs to Kevin MacLeod.)

Note: It seems there have been some issues with the current downloads. I will inform you when I've tested and re-uploaded.

EDIT: All downloads have been fixed.

If you've already downloaded, you may need to re-download, there was a pretty bad bug I missed which cuts out a day of progress. I apologize immensely.

For everyone asking, this game is on a hiatus, due to differences of interest within the group. I have been working on it as time allows, but I've moved to other projects in the meantime. Thank you all for your support!

is this game dead?

It's an interesting game. I feel really intrigued by Cameron, and for some reason can't help feeling suspicious about Jaden... 

The only real problem I've had with the game is that the skip option didn't seem to work properly (it would only activate sometimes, or not at all). Besides that, I enjoyed it ^^


it's been a really long time since i've played this game, but i always come back to check on it and see how it's coming along! It's one of the few games that are stuck in their "demo phase" that i still support, even if there hasn't been any news about it in a while. still, im excited for the full game! can't believe it'll be 2 years since the release of the demo in 2 months, and im still here. anyways, enough rambling! like i said, i havent played it in a really long time, but i thought id drop down here anyways to show some support!

pretty bad at writing comments, but i thought id make an effort since this is a game i love and have been (silently) supporting since i downloaded it.

I downloaded this Demo and I really enjoyed it and I can't wait to play the full game!! Thank you so much for creating this amazing game!

I think the Skip Mode need a little improvement, at it seems doesn't work after the first visit to the hospital (or is it intentional?).

The concept of choices as the moment of recalling his memories and with good pace of plot adds the mystery and keeps intrigue the player (at least me) to explore your "organized mess". Keep up the good work :)

Just finished the demo. When will the full game be done?

When will the final version of the game be released?

I really liked the demo of the game and I wanted to ask if you guys plan on releasing it anytime soon ?

so like was this never completed? It was a really good demo I'd love to see it played through.

(1 edit)

The demo is very interesting. I am interested in playing more :) Is game still in development?

I talk about the demo itself in my blog: http://pajamagaming.blogspot.com/2017/02/demos-to-keep-eye-on-3.html

im excited to know more~ fighting
