The press bits:
We've got your first set of English screenshots for Amnesia: Memories! In the game you choose your romantic path at the start, with each "World" corresponding to a different lover. With this batch, you get a taste of the Heart World with Shin and the Diamond World with Toma - two guys with very different personalities.

Will you be able to piece together that which was forgotten and rewrite the lasting love story you deserve, or will your love story come to an end?
