Melody wanted a break from her stressful med classes— so when spring break came around, she dragged her best friend Shion with her to the beach. However, things don't go quite so smoothly when they meet Brennan, a local fisherman, and Crylis... a mermaid?!

Memories on the Shoreline is an otome dating sim featuring Melody, a med student, on her vacation of a lifetime where she meets two bachelors while at the beach. Brennan, the cheeky lady's man who's a bit overprotective, and Crylis, the fugitive merman who's hides behind a lot of snark. How exactly is she going to get herself out of this trouble—?!

This is a visual novel meant for a female audience and is made by a team of almost entirely women.


  • 5 hours long for all routes
  • 2 love interests, the fisherman and the merman
  • 5 endings with Steam achievements for each
  • CG gallery and dress-up mini game outside the main game
