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.
