Winter Memories Heroine Routes & Useful Tips

You must absolutely get the Skill “Power of Time” before anything else. It cuts nearly every action’s time cost by half.

Other Skills to prioritize are:

  • Infinite Film (No more Camera battery loss)
  • Treasure Hunter (Needed for certain routes)
  • Lockpicking (Needed for Kagami)
  • Nightwalker (Needed for Kanae, and gives you more time for moneymaking activities)
  • At least one of the Service Skills and Perversion Skills (For certain conditions requiring EXP in their respective Sex Bar)
  • Social Skills One & Two (For easier Affection and Mood, and less time spent talking)

Addtional note: When an event gets triggered automatically in the (Time of Day) that generally means it will trigger when the time hits XX:00, i.e. the next hour. Otherwise, it has to trigger precisely when the Time of Day changes to the start of the next one.

Some Other Tips You Should Know

Daily Fortune

Generally, the first thing you should do in the Morning is to go to the Shrine and draw a fortune at the Omikuji. Utilize Save/Load to get the best possible fortune. It costs ¥100 so get your first paycheck by washing the dishes.

Minigame Perfect Scores

Every Minigame that gives you money always has bonus money after you finish without a single mistake. And the bonus is always going to be higher than your own base payunless you’ve got a good gaming chair. So either Save before every Minigame, or don’t play too hastily. A low but perfect score pays over double what a high but imperfect score does.

Making Money

The Part-Time Waiter Minigame is the best paying Minigame. With a Perfect and High Score, You could generally earn around ¥6000 to ¥9000 per shift. Note that the Minigame says 60 minutes, but it actually just skips to the next Time of Day. I suggest playing it just before your current Time of Day ends. As taking it at 11:55 will just jump you to 12:00 instead of taking 60 minutes.
The next best paying Minigame only happens on 01/01. No it’s not the stalls at the shrine; It’s actually fishing. When you reach 01/01, you get to earn the “King of Games” Achievement”*, allowing you to skip Minigames entirely. This means you can fish instantly at the Levee, and sell it to the “Fisherman Man” NPC there too, who only appears on 01/01 and beyond. Remember to stock up on bait and use your idle time fishing.

*Play all 10 Minigames (12/31 you play the two stalls. 01/01 you play Calligraphy in the Tatami Room)

Menko & Levelling Up

The Menko Minigame is by far the easiest method to gaining EXP, unlocking new Skills, and actually become a pro Menkoer. Every new opponent you beat gives you 20 EXP and 15 Memories, plus an item. Remember to actually level up before you battle another NPC.
