I just played this tonight and is my first freebird game.

I view the little girl as the step sister. I see this because the girl never even acknowledges the mom or goes inside the house. The little girl is only there to pick up the brother, and that is it. Also, the sister only wants the brother to stay with her. She never mentions the mother at all.

A part which makes me wonder is the letter. What was in the letter? Possibly the mother asking for some money for the sons cake? However, that money would have gotten to her too late, meaning maybe it was just asking for money or something else.

I too have had to grow up with divorced parents. Neither one was in poverty, but still the feeling of having to tear yourself in two is there. The father wants the son to stay, yet the mother wants the son as well. Every Christmas and major holiday was always this decision on who to stay it with.

Such a beautiful piece of art though. I am most definitely checking out your other games Sir Rieve.

And TC, I did almost cry, lol.

I know what you mean
The background is somewhat of similar to me to but only with difference that my old man rarely cares for me after divorce... So it's somehow really painfull to see that young lad to be... Well in my eyes tricked into belive that his fater really cares for him more that his mom.... Well This was a long time ago... But still.

It's stories like these that make me hate volunteering for foster care.
It's sad as it is beautiful artistic game from Reives and Freebird Games. Bravo!

I especially liked the secret.

I loved this story, and yes, I did cry.

I think the thing that would have made me cry more is if the mother sold the music box, the one thing she owned that brought her joy, just so she could afford a cake. But she didn't, and for that I'm happy.

Seeing it from this perspective made me feel somewhat happy too. =]  I did not cry, but watched with a heavy heart throughout.  When i realised the mother was opening and shutting the music box,  I felt really helpless.  I wish the father had the decency to at least send her a message to let her know their son is staying the night with him.  Nevertheless, thank you, Freebird Games, for this lovely albeit sad little story.  I enjoyed it and really love your graphics and the music!  :seraismile:

It's very touching. I like the part where the mom saves the money in that small jar for his son's birthday. As for other people who thinks that this game is unrealistic, I think that that games or movies or books doesn't have to be realistic as they are only tools "to tell a story". Reives did a great job telling the story through the music, limited dialogues, and the scenes.

Just "palayed" this... *sob sob*  :'( :'(

Somehow, when I see someone doing something for their loved ones in vain, that is just the saddest. Brings memories from my childhood.

Thank you Reives, you 've reminded me how much I love my mom. Gotta give her a call, right now  :'(

This didn't take away any emotional impact the story had on me (things like that give me heart-punch), but I'm the tiniest bit confused on one thing. Please tell me which one is right, and if neither are right....please explain. :P

a) The birthday boy was the lady's grandson, and he was staying home with his parents? That doesn't sound right to me, but ugh.

b) The birthday boy was the lady's SON, and she used to be married to the man at the other house, but he had possibly remarried to the red-haired woman? And I guess the little girl was her daughter....

Now I feel like I'm just spouting nonsense.  :facepalm:

It's been years so I may be wrong but I think it's B.

The birthday boy's parents are separated and he had the predicament of choosing who to spend his birthday with.

Wow, just wow. This was actually the first one i played. I've still yet to play the others (lol what i decision to play this first). Anyway, i think this game was really brilliant. Kinda bummed about the ending. But i have to admit i didn't cry ( i know i'm ashamed.) nonetheless i really do feel for the poor mother.

What's true is that there is no one to blame at all. There is no bad guy, which i think is quite extraordinary. Its exactly, what it says a 'slice of life'.

I feel so bad for the mother, at the same time i want to blame the kid for being reckless and the dad for being so inconsiderate. But he's five, and he's just lost his dad. And as for the dad he's just trying to make sure his son doesn't feel insecure. It was just so unlucky what happened.  :'(

Finally got around to playing this.
It was definitely sad, though I'm not the crying type. I can definitely relate to the situation though. I have seen stuff like that happen before, and let me tell you, it's just as sad in real life.
I'm amazed at how Kan is able to bring up emotions and thoughts in people that wouldn't have happened otherwise.

Btw, I liked the exaggerated accents, for this reason. When I see it written like that, I can HEAR the person talking like that. You can hear the kids talking, and the shop owners with thier accents. It just makes it more real for me. Just my opinion.

One last thing, is it a coincidence that the man and woman looked almost exactly like River and Johnny?  Just wondering...
I don't even...

Hey there. The name's Danthe. I just made a showcasing of Do You Remember My Lullaby?, and I hope you guys will enjoy it. It's made a bit like a TV series, where every episode is around 7 minutes long. In the start of every episode I've also made a little recap of the previous episode. I hope you'll enjoy it, since this game/visual novel is very dear to me, but if you don't, don't be afraid of telling me what you think. I prefer negative response rather than no response at all, since that is how one can improve.
Have a nice day.

I somehow felt that the story was incomplete. Like, yes there was some setting up and it built tension in the part where the mother was waiting, but is that really the end? I thought there would be some sort of resolution in the end. Atleast, he could have shown

. It felt a bit too abrupt for me.
