Maeko is a single mother with a 15-year-old daughter, struggling to make ends meet. One day she gains consciousness outside a curious shop, with no memory of how she arrived there. She learns from the proprietor of the shop that she decided to sell her life experiences, that is, her memories. Now she can’t remember what happened in the last three days. At all.

With her newfound credits, Maeko could choose to buy back her memories -- to learn what really happened to her -- or maybe just spend it all on a top-of-the-line audio system. It’s up to the player to decide what Maeko remembers … and what she forgets.

All writing, art, and audio, created in 72 hours. Visual novel engine also created from scratch.

This is the final post-jam version. You can find the downloadable original submission build here: https://daring-owl-studios.itch.io/maekos-memories

For some reason the game starts with me achieving the ending where I take down the corp? But I can't get to it naturally, even if I buy the memory of getting fired before going to work,  and buy additional work related memories and investigate all I can at work each day. This game seems really cool but I can't manage to get any other end but the neutral one. At first remembering Monday part 4 would let me go to Rexa's concert with a date, but now that's not working anymore? Also the game keeps freezing up in the later portion when I remember the 1st wednesday slot and keeps forcing me to start over

this is such a fascinating concept! i love the art and futuristic vibe, too. one question: how do i get all the endings? i can only seem to get the middle one :/

I really like the game! It has an interesting concept and story, and the art is fits it so well!

I ran into a bug on the shop Friday night, if I sell and buy too many things, it takes me home automatically and resets the day, so I ended up playing the same day several times.

Unfortunately I couldn't get more than the neutral (I assume) ending.

Interesting
