Left a memory called "my cat, malo <3"
I left on called "Returned Home"
i just think i'm in love with this game.
short and sweet - the realization that all the memories were left by other players made me suprisingly happy! i left a memory about my friends called 'connections' <3
Very cute game, 10/10, short and sweet.
I just created a series of memories, well, my friend's, but still, and anyways, they all end in, 'We are united'. It's about her and her dog.
Cute and sweetilike it
nearly made me cry, amazing simple and short game :)
Hopefully something like this is acceptable by The Shop of Good Memory's standards!!
Excuse me! I was wandering if there's a way to download the music in this game so that I can listen to it in my free time since its really relaxing and nice.
sorry for the bother and thanks for the game it was fun and very relaxing. >w<;;
This game is amazing! It helped me to relax, and conjure up happy memories. Thanks for making a great experience!
i got a memory about a sun-filled stroll, so i decided to add in my experience with my soccer team and the last practice of the season :)
i loved playing this game!
This was the perfect shop to bring up sweet memories you may want to visit. I'm just sharing mine here because I've been thinking of it: I was on a week long vacation with 20 family friends, and I was exhausted from being around everyone. Some people were playing a game or talking. Only one other girl was there and she was with a guy in a hot tub. I was alone and sat at the counter on the bottom floor, where there was a TV above the sink. I started to play Mario Kart. Then one guy grabbed a second controller and asked to join me. I hadn't talked all day, as I have this thing where I freeze to talk in groups bigger than three. I was able to talk and connect with him over a game, and it was nice, not awkward or forced. Even when we didn't talk, it was a comfortable silence. That was the only conversation I had all week with someone my age, and it was amazing.
I think it was super cute! I love the vibe of the shop and remembering your old memories can be really fun!
I love it! It is short and sweet, I feel really melancholic, but in a good way.
Reading the memories in the comments makes me really happy and grateful, it is an amazing experience.
I didn't screen shoot mine.
His very existence is the thing that makes getting up in the morning worth it. He turns every bad feeling into something good so I hope he can do the same for you. His name is Tabby and he's my best friend. He's the sweetest little ball of fluff I've ever seen... I hope he knows he means the world to me.
this game made me nostalgic, i got a chance to dwell into the past and think bout simple times. i miss those days, reading other people's memories is wonderful too, its brings me great joy thinking that all of us are leaving a piece of us in this game!!
thank u for making this sweet game!! its atmosphere is beautiful and calming too
good game. kinda buggy. there should not be a character limit.
this game made me really nostalgic, the music made me even more immersive in my thoughts. thank you for remind me of those days, and even tho my memory isn't really happy, i am happy bc i remembered about the time i had with my dog beethoven.
again, thank you for the good & nostalgic atmosphere you bring to me through a game and good job!
this is so sweet, thank you!
really atmospheric music and friendly vibes <3
thanks for reminding me of good times!!
rainy day, baking bread & waiting for a date are my favourites ^v^
It felt like one of those peaceful dreams, the music and atmosphere made it look so chill and inviting. Reading those good memories and remembering a good one made me revive the feeling of that day. Simple, but awesome.
A short, simple little game that brings thoughts of gratitude and joy.
What if you linked it to a site from which it could randomly pull memories, that players could submit and that would be curated to avoid trolls? I think it would be something very special and positive. :)
Can other people actually see your memories? And can you see everyone else's memories as well?
I think that would be a marvelous idea, so long as people had the choice whether or not to share, and provided the shared memories were curated to avoid trolls. :)
this is literally the sweetest game ive ever played the memories i got from this game is so heart warming i loved it <3 rainy days november
there goes my moms bday memory
So amazing and fun! I left an embellished version of my first kiss behind.
i wish a shop like this existed in real life
found a sweet first date memory <3 left a self care one in its replacement. hope the couple is still happily together <3
i feel good looking these memories!
Thank you for this experience. I appreciate it. Thank you, again, thank you very much!
It's been a few tough months without seeing their smiles, but I'm keeping myself strong and trying to be patient. I love them dearly and now all I want is for them to be safe.
can i just say WOW
like its so simple and the calming music? i was kinda hyped before i started playing like on overdose and just trying to do something with my time before starting this and i feel so much calmer now. gosh thanksssssssss!!!!!!
I ABSOLUTELY adore this and will probably keep coming back.
hope you like the story on me and my mom ( this story is very personal to me b/c its the only time i've talked to her without us yelling at each other ) :)
Great work! Thank You!
This is a really really interesting idea, how I wish discovered this game sooner.
I love this so much!~ The atmosphere and everything and the sound effects are so perfect! :) I love reading the memories and also wanted to share a memory I wrote back.
When I leave a memory, can other people see it? I like that :)
That's what I was thinking! Sadly, when I play it over and over, I realize all the memories stay the same, whether you took them last time or not,
