Amnesia: Memories is currently on sale on Steam right now! Get it while you can!
So the new fad for my blog after Yuri on Ice ends is Amnesia, although nothing can really match the hype I felt for that anime. I was gonna do Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons but it crashed five times and after spending 40 minutes trying to get it to run, I gave up and asked for a refund. So… back to Amnesia. I’ve seen the anime adaptation and wanted to play the game ever since. This Christmas my wish is fulfilled.
Why don’t you just watch the gameplay video, you ask? Because I want to make choices myself.
Now, into the story. At first you (the player) is greeted by this androgynous spirit that calls himself Orion.
Apparently he crashed into your soul and replaced your memories. So now you have a special kind of retrograde amnesia called ‘Spirit Replacement Syndrome’. In order to get your memories back and free yourself from this eternally nagging boy, you have to interact with people and recall your memories. After a while of chit chat and him giving you tips about how to live your life, you’re asked for your name.
One thing I’d like to say is, despite many people calling her stupid in the anime, she’s actually a very pretty heroine. After naming, you get to choose where to go first. Basically you get to choose a route right away. I’ve snooped around Ikkyu and Kent, and the order of events are different. You could also explore stuff through choices.
The order of the route I’ll play is this: Spade (Ikkyu), Clover (Kent), Heart (Shin), Diamond (Toma) and Joker(?). Oh, but before that we need to heed Orion’s warning:
The graphics in this game is probably the best I’ve seen in Otome (lol since this is my first paid game) Orion blinks and move his mouth as he talks, and when he finished talking his mouth stopped moving. I really look forward to spending time with this little guy.
I’ll constantly update more as I play.
