The third game in KID's ''Infinity'' series of visual novels. ''Remember11'' follows the stories of two characters.

The first is the story of Fuyukawa Kokoro, a psychiatric student traveling to the SPHIA (Specified Psychiatric Hospital for Isolation and Aegis) facility to interview a patient residing there. Following an accident in which the plane on which Kokoro was traveling crashed in the mountains, the survivors of the crash attempt to survive in the mountains with limited supplies until they can be rescued. The other survivors include Mayuzumi Lin, Yomogi Seiji, and Kusuda Yuni.

The second ongoing story follows Yukidoh Satoru, a resident of SPHIA, where he resides with Utsumi Kali, Inubushi Keiko, and Kusuda Yuni. Satoru's story revolves around several incidents which make it appear as though somebody is trying to kill him, as well as Satoru's investigations into the mysterious "personality transfer" phenomenon which causes his and Kokoro's minds to swap between the two of them...

This game is part of the ''Infinity'' series, so expect [[MindScrew spoilers]] while reading the tropes list.

----
!!This Visual Novel contains Examples of the Following Tropes:
* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother: As revealed by the tips, [[spoiler:Utsumi, who going by the timeline had Junichi when she was fourteen. One of the Drama [=CDs=] elaborates on this; Junichi was an accident from the one time Yomogi and Utsumi had sex before they were married. Otherwise, the relationship was mostly sexless.]]
* AliceAndBob: [[spoiler:Used as an example by Enomoto while explaining quantum teleportation.]]
* AllMenArePerverts: Kokoro writes Satoru a note which, amongst others, tells him not to touch her body while he's inside it. A few moments later, she's back in the cabin, where Juni and Yomogi were busy [[PantyShot enjoying the view that Satoru gave them]].
* AllThereInTheManual: [[spoiler:Much of Satoru's true motives and answers to several unsolved mysteries can only be found in a timeline of the Infinity series in the PSP version.]]
* AmbiguousInnocence: [[spoiler:The twins]]. Full stop. As in, so innocent, [[PsychopathicManchild they don't know]] what [[KnifeNut shiny knives do]].
* ArcNumber: 11 [[spoiler:as in, the number 3 (written in binary). To name a few examples: it relates to the years the game takes place in (2011 and 2012; 1+2 = 3), the number of victims Keiko murdered (12), the number of transfer points (3), and the number of people involved in the personality transfers (3 pairs). That it initially seems to be the decimal number 11 is in itself symbolic, and ties into one of the game's core themes: of looking beneath the surface to see the truth.]]
** 33, which is the amount of minutes that a body-swap lasts for. [[spoiler:Of course, it's 3*11]].
* ArcWords: Where is "Self"?
* AsTheGoodBookSays: In the prologue [[spoiler:and in Bad Ending #28]], Satoru quotes 1 Samuel 18:10-11 [[spoiler:as a metaphor for his hatred towards "That Guy".]]
* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler:Mayuzumi]] in Bad Ending #8. It only goes downhill from there.
* AttemptedRape: Heavily implied that this is what [[spoiler:Yomogi was going to do to Kokoro]] in Bad Ending #8.
* AxCrazy: [[spoiler:Mayuzumi, in several bad endings.]]
* [[spoiler:BabiesEverAfter]]: Depending on what happens after the ending, this may either be played straight or subverted for [[spoiler:Yomogi and Utsumi.]]
* [[spoiler:BolivianArmyEnding: The epilogue implies that Keiko is currently in control of her body, and then ends.]]
* ButNotTooForeign: Utsumi is half-Japanese, half-Indian.
* CassandraTruth: Satoru and Kokoro fail to convince their companions of the personality transfer, although most of them do recognize that the two of them have multiple personalities.
* ClassReunion: Yuni [[DiscussedTrope mentions the cliché turnabout]] at the beginning in the plane.
* ContinuityNod:
** [[spoiler:The Tips reveal that Enomoto is working for a not-explicitly-named German/Japanese pharmaceutical company which has recently started [[{{Ever17}} funding an amusement park and researching biological weapons]]]]
** Kokoro is a student of Kyumeikan Women's University, where Sara and You studied ([[TimeTravelTenseTrouble will study?]]) in ''{{Ever17}}''.
*** Satoru and [[spoiler:Enomoto]] went to the (presumably) guys-only branch of that same university. It's just called Kyumeikan University.
** The gigantic tuna sled seen in Satoru's route, tunas have been seen/mentioned in every Infinity title.
** Yuni nicknames his teddy bear [[{{Ever17}} TB]].
** In one scene, Kokoro says "Pain, pain, fly away, all the way to Andromeda!" to Yuni after he hurts his head. Similar scenes occured in the Infinity series between the protagonist and the another member of their group, such as in {{Never7}} (between Makoto and Kurumi) and {{Ever17}} (between Kid and You).
** The terabyte disc makes another appearance. [[note]]For the record, as of 2013, optical discs reaching those sizes aren't possible yet.[[/note]]
* CreepyChild: Keiko Inubushi. Also [[spoiler:Yuni]], at times, and in a much younger (and MUCH creepier) example even than usual, [[spoiler:Yomogi and Utsumi's infant twins]].
** Although to any observers, the final examples would appear to be [[spoiler:[[PsychopathicManchild Psychopathic Manchildren]]]].
* DarkerAndEdgier: When compared to other Infinity titles like {{Never7}} and {{Ever17}}.
* DarkSkinnedBlond: Utsumi Kali
* DeadpanSnarker: Satoru
* DespairEventHorizon: Satoru (and it's implied Yuni as well) pretty much smacks headfirst into this in the [[spoiler:Utsumi]]'s Plan Completion Ending. Something similar happens in any ending that retcons the game into either a DyingDream or a TheEndingChangesEverything ([[spoiler:CuckooNest]]?).
* DownerEnding: Pretty much every bad ending.
** [[spoiler:Also the "true" ending, which is disguised as a generic bad end, along with the "The story isn't over yet! It's an infinity loop!" text, though it's the only ending where people (apart from Enomoto) won't die. Many mysteries are not revealed (especially if the player didn't encounter the "Apoptosis" bad end beforehand) and the game ends in a cliffhanger.]]
* DreamMelody: Kagome, kagome...
* DrinkOrder: [[spoiler:Enomoto]] repeats a few different times that he very much prefers black coffee, a fact which becomes important in the Apoptosis ending. Satoru mentions that he does as well.
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:Kokoro in one ending; feeling responsible for Yuni and Yomogi's deaths, she takes the only way out.]]
* DudeShesLikeInAComa: It's unclear due to [[spoiler:Satoru]] [[UnreliableNarrator being unconscious/delirious at that time]], but apparently [[spoiler:Keiko rapes/takes advantage of Satoru while he is in drug-induced stupor]].
* [[spoiler:DummiedOut: In the game's data, full sprite sheets for the real Hotori and Sayaka (with a lot more expressions than in her one scene) can be found, suggesting they might have had a bigger part in the story. Furthermore, "Extra Voices" much like the ones in Ever17 can be found in the data, but were never implemented.]]
* [[spoiler:DyingDream: Several Bad Ends turn the whole game into one, as a result of a TimeParadox created by those endings.]]
* DysfunctionJunction: SPHIA. [[JustifiedTrope Unsurprisingly,]] given it's a psychiatric hospital.
* EarnYourHappyEnding
* [[spoiler:EverybodyLives: Except for Enomoto and Hotori.]]
* ExecutiveMeddling: The reason why the game had loose ends.
* FanTranslation: A full translation was released by [=TLWiki=] during October 2010.
* [[spoiler:FetusTerrible]]: Subverted with [[spoiler:Yomogi and Utsumi's children -- they appear to be this due to their actions in Kokoro/Satoru's bodies, but the TIPS reveals that they aren't aware of what they're doing or that it's wrong.]]
* FissionMailed: Satoru's good ending finishes with the same message given on all of the bad endings.
* FourPhilosophyEnsemble: The 4 characters trapped in the shelter cabin can be categorized as such:
** The Cynic: Lin
** The Optimist: Kokoro
** The Realist: Yomogi
** The Apathetic: Yuni
* FreakyFridayFlip: Satoru and Kokoro [[spoiler:and one of Utsumi's twins. Hotori and Inubushi have the same thing happening with another twin.]]
** [[spoiler:Satoru and Enomoto exchange personalities either sometime before or during the prologue.]]
** [[spoiler: It's also actually inverted most of the time. It's not their personalities that switch bodies, it's their bodies (and everything in a 110m radius) that switch places, with their minds staying at the same places and times. Does that make sense to anybody reading this? [[MindScrew Probably not]]]].
* FreakOut: Satoru goes through two of these- [[spoiler:once after Enomoto finishes his explanation about how the transfer phenomenon works, and again in Bad Ending 28 when he comes face to face with his past self (actually Enomoto in his true body).]]
* GenderBender: Satoru and Kokoro get to experience as part of their FreakyFridayFlip.
* GenkiGirl: Kokoro [[spoiler:and Hotori, in the Satoru chapter]] can border on this.
* GollumMadeMeDoIt: Some of the more "destructive" actions that Kokoro and Satoru do ([[spoiler:Eating all of the remaining food, murdering Enomoto, destroying the living room]]) are blamed on the other party. [[spoiler:As it turns out, none of these actions were either of their fault, and were committed by a third personality in their bodies.]]
* GratuitousEnglish: It's in the title.
** One of the game's greatest unsolved mysteries is what the hell Wood Carbuncle, written on seemingly all of Satoru's shirts, means.
*** [[spoiler:Oddly enough, Wood Carbuncle is also written on the real Hotori's sweatshirt.]]
** The lyrics for the OP and ED, as typical of a Chiyomaru Shikura composed song.
* GuideDangIt: There are over 30 endings, and most of them [[DownerEnding aren't happy]].
** Many are also extremely difficult to access if you don't know what you're doing. And god help you if you decide to try for 100% completion, which, due to a few events that occur at random, may be literally impossible without a guide.
*** Some endings even require you to play as one character and take certain choices, then start a new game playing as the other character.
* [[spoiler:HalfIdenticalTwins: Yomogi and Utsumi's twins.]] Surprising, considering how [[{{Ever17}} other]] [[TwelveRiven games]] in the series avoid this trope.
* HydePlaysJekyll
* InfantImmortality: Averted. One of Inubushi's victims had just turned nine when he was killed. [[spoiler:We later find out that he was Yomogi and Utsumi's son. Additionally, the game ends with Hotori/Inubushi holding ''another'' one of their children with a crazed look on her face.]]
* InsanityDefense: Due to having Dissociative Identity Disorder, Keiko Inubushi was merely sent to SPHIA instead of being jailed.
* InspiredBy: The event that sets the first part in motion may have been inspired by the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japan_Airlines_Flight_123 Japan Airlines Flight 123 disaster]], in which a 747 crashed into a mountain after losing control, leaving only four survivors out of the 524 passengers and crew on board.
* IronicNurseryTune: Keiko frequently sings ''Kagome, Kagome'', a song used in a Japanese children's game of the same name.
* IWillFindYou: In the past, Mayuzumi and Satoru had a conversation that pretty much boiled down to this and was referred to a few times during the game. [[spoiler:The timeline shows that the transfers were initially set up as a gambit by Satoru (with Enomoto's and Yuni's help) to save Mayuzumi in particular, as well as everyone else, from dying on the mountain, making the entire game a quasi-amnesiac extension of this]].
* KillEmAll: [[spoiler:Yomogi and Mayuzumi]], in certain bad endings.
* KnifeNut: Keiko Inubushi.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Satoru
* LaughingMad: [[spoiler: Kokoro]] in the Location X Avalanche End.
* TheLoad: Mayuzumi. A ''huge'' reason for her status as TheScrappy.
* LostInTransmission: Played straight and subverted.
** Subverted when messages left by either Kokoro or Satoru are cut off not by technical reasons, but the personality switches.
** Played straight when [[spoiler: the cabin group manages to get a call through a mobile 'phone but the rescue group is unable to hear them due to solar wind interference]].
* LuxuryPrisonSuite: While it wasn't necessarily built with the intent to be used as a prison, SPHIA ends up being this to Keiko Inubushi.
* MadnessMantra: [[spoiler:Yomogi]] in Bad Ending #8: [[spoiler:"I won't let anyone die any more."]]
** [[spoiler:Mayuzumi]] gets one too in one bad ending -- "Sorry."
* TheManBehindTheCurtain: [[spoiler:Naoya Enomoto]], an unusually creepy example.
* MayDecemberRomance: Yuni, described as being 11-12, and Kokoro, who's 20.
** To a lesser extent, [[spoiler:Yomogi and Utsumi]]; the Tips reveal that, despite outward appearances, he's nine years older than her.
* MeaningfulName: The original Roman alphabet spelling of Yuni was "Uni" -- he's the one character who exists in both [[spoiler:2011 and 2012]]. His last name, Kusuda, also comes from [[TheTrickster his archetype]] -- pronounced in Japanese, it's "To-ri-KU-SU-TA".
** Seiji Yomogi's name is composed of two words - "Seiji", which is the Japanese pronouciation for "sage", and "(yama)yomogi", the Japanese word for "mountain mugwort".
** Kali's name comes from "Mahakali" -- a Hindu goddess who is considered in the religion to be the aspect of Kali that represents the "Divine Mother".
** Hotori Suzukage: [[spoiler:Her name comes from "kage", or shadow, which is Keiko Inubushi's [[Radio/TheShadow archetype]], as she "shadows" Inubushi.]]
** Kokoro's and Satoru's names are also meaningful. Satoru goes into a very in-depth explanation near the end of the game, but even on the surface, Kokoro ([[TheMcCoy meaning "heart"]]) and Satoru ([[TheKirk meaning "enlightenment/wisdom"]]) serve as good shorthand for their respective ways of thinking.
*** SPHIA, the faculty that Satoru is stuck in, is pronounced suspiciously like Sophia; which is Greek for wisdom.
* MegaCorp: [[spoiler:The TIPS reveal that Enomoto is working for [[{{Ever17}} Leiblich Pharmaceutical]]]]
* MercyKill: Hotori's justification for killing a sick rat. Theorized to have been a possible motivation (or justification) behind Keiko Inubushi's killing spree at the hospital.
* MindScrew: Unlike its predecessor, {{Ever17}}, you have to bring your own MindScrewdriver to this one.
* MrExposition: [[spoiler:This is essentially Enomoto's role.]]
* NobodyPoops: Played straight in Satoru's route, but averted once in Kokoro's route for the RuleOfFunny: where Kokoro ([[GenderBender in Satoru's body]]) realizes that there's one extra step she has to take as a guy to go to the bathroom.
* [[spoiler:NoEnding]]
* ObfuscatingStupidity: [[spoiler:Yuni (at the cabin).]]
* OhCrap: [[spoiler:Kokoro and Satoru in the ending when they realize Keiko is in control of her body. Holding Yomogi and Utsumi's twin daughter at the edge of a cliff.]]
* OneDegreeOfSeparation: [[spoiler:Everybody has at least one connection to a person at the other location.]]
** The Tips reveal that many also share birthdays.
* PantyShot: Not seen by the viewer, but Yuni and Yomogi are appreciative of the fact that Satoru hasn't learned to sit with his knees together while wearing a skirt.
** Well that, and being a guy he didn't really care anyway.
* PetTheDog: Mayuzumi's flashback scenes with Satoru and Kokoro-pretending-to-be-Satoru.
* PoorCommunicationKills: Many of the bad ends towards the end of Kokoro's path result in people dying because Kokoro doesn't bother to explain ''why'' they should or shouldn't do something before running off.
* RedOniBlueOni: Kokoro is reasonably smart and well-educated but also friendly, passionate when arguing, and has a tendency to jump to (often wrong) conclusions about things. Meanwhile, Satoru is a student of the natural sciences who tends to analyze everything with scientific methodology (but he is not cold—he can also be quite passionate when the situation calls for it). The colors are also made explicit in the TitleSequence: [[spoiler:The two are seen passing by each other, where their whole bodies are tinted their respective colors. In another instance Kokoro is seen [[FreakyFridayFlip turning into]] Satoru; their eyes flash first red then blue.]]
* RescueRomance: According to the Drama [=CDs=], [[spoiler:Yomogi and Utsumi's]] relationship is a result of this.
* SanitySlippage: Happens to the whole cast at some point or another, but especially prevalent in Kokoro's bad endings.
* TheScrappy: Lin Mayuzumi, treated this way in-universe as well (except by Satoru).
* SelfFulfillingProphecy: [[spoiler:Kokoro reads the newspaper from the future that says that she and her companions will be killed 1 km east of the cabin, and concludes that they must have gone there in the "original" timeline to pick up emergency supplies. She concludes that the presence of the newspaper would cause her to reach the conclusion earlier, thus allowing her to pick up the supplies before the avalanche. This results in the group being in the path of the avalanche when it occurs]]
* SerialKiller: Keiko Inubushi (although she technically is a spree killer)
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong
* SherlockScan: Yuni does this to Kokoro on the plane.
* ShownTheirWork: BIG time. Hell, one of the main reason the TIPS section exists is for the writers to say, "Yes, we did the research, see?"
* SkywardScream: PlayedForLaughs; when Satoru (in Kokoro's body) realizes that [[GagPenis something that should be there isn't]], he lets out one.
* TheSmartGuy: Satoru. In his past, he verges into quasi-[[spoiler:MadScientist]] territory.
* SnowMeansDeath: Too many Bad Endings to count.
* TheSouthpaw: Kokoro.
* TheSpeechless: Keiko Inubushi [[spoiler:but only the personality that controls her when Kokoro is at SPHIA]]
** [[spoiler:The TIPS reveal that this is a combination of the shock Hotori is experiencing from the aftermath of the plane crash and her naturally shy personality.]]
** [[spoiler:Hotori actually gets better by the end of Satoru's route, only to lose her speech ''again'' after getting caught in the avalanche.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The romaji from the japanese version of the game spell the main heroine's name "Cocoro", while the translation patch uses the more common "Kokoro".
** Not to mention Yuni, whose name was written in the original OP movie as Uni.
* SplitPersonality: Keiko Inubushi. Kokoro and Satoru use this as an explanation for their personality transfers (which isn't necessarily a lie, [[JediTruth but isn't the entire truth]])
** [[spoiler:Sayaka, Satoru's twin sister, also had DID, and one of her personalities murdered her parents.]]
* [[spoiler:StableTimeLoop: All attempts to avert the cabin residents being killed in the avalanche result in them being killed, or somebody else taking their place. Averted in the true ending, where they are saved.]]
* SpoilerOpening: the opening for the PSP version. Blink and you'll miss them, but a few characters you're not even supposed to know exist until the final quarter of the game appear.
** The same applies to the PC version opening, though said characters flash by so fast that most people barely notice them on their first time.
* TheStraightMan: Satoru.
* StepfordSmiler: [[spoiler:Utsumi]].
* TeamDad[=/=]TeamMom: Yomogi and Utsumi, respectively, each in a different location. [[spoiler:Unsurprisingly, they're married.]]
* ThirdActMisunderstanding: Mayuzumi taking the rations that everyone else has pooled together as just Yomogi's rations and assuming that he was holding out food on her.
* ThirdActStupidity: Once you recover from the ThirdActMisunderstanding, if Kokoro guards the remaining rations, she finds after another switch that the she's somehow eaten the rations and thinks that Satoru ate them in an act of this. [[spoiler:Subverted. When you see that switch from Satoru's point of view, he's already found the rations to be gone and assumes that Kokoro ate them. Like most of the inexplicable occurences, this is actually to be blamed on one of Utsumi's twins (the male twin, specifically), who got into Kokoro's body before Satoru, and not knowing any better, gobbled them up]].
* TimelineAlteringMacGuffin: The newspaper from July, 2011.
* TomatoInTheMirror[=/=]TomatoSurprise: As revealed in the tips, the one who's responsible for everything that's going on is [[spoiler:Satoru. Seriously.]]
** [[spoiler:Bad Ending #28 also reveals that the character we really thought was Satoru all along was actually Enomoto, and that the two switched bodies before 2012.]]
* TraumaInducedAmnesia: Satoru, probably? This is part of the MindScrew.
** [[spoiler:Judging from hints given throughout the game, it seems likely that the Satoru the player plays as (I) is in fact Self, and therefore he has no memories, apart from what they've learned from Kokoro's route about him. Furthermore, Satoru's original personality (''I'') has left his body, thereby taking all his memories.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Mayuzumi, for Satoru. Type A.
* TwoLinesNoWaiting: Played straight up until the plane crash. Afterward, there are two plots running simultaneously, but they're both being observed by a single viewpoint character as they switch between bodies
* VeryFalseAdvertising: The bottom of the can of hard tack reads "[[GratuitousEnglish This is very delicious emergency rations]]". They are not.
* VoicesAreMental: Subverted. While Kokoro and Satoru's lines are generally voiced by their respective actors regardless of body, this is purely for reader convenience; other characters distinguish between the two by pitch, implicitly stating each body keeps its voice. This is demonstrated when Kokoro listens to messages from Satoru on her recorder; the voice in the recording is still Kokoro's, only with a deeper pitch.
** [[spoiler:Either played straight or subverted in Bad Ending #28: Original!Satoru in his own body (Enomoto's by 2012) is still voiced by TakehitoKoyasu, while Enomoto in his own body (Satoru's by 2012) is still voiced by Shunsaku Nishigaki. Whether this is also for the convenience of the reader or not is unknown.]]
* VolleyingInsults: Between Yuni and Lin.
* [[spoiler:WhatYearIsThis: Satoru asks this to confirm that the personality-swap is also accompanied by a time-jump.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: This game has enough of these that the Character Sheet has a separate folder for them.
* WhamEpisode: [[spoiler:The "Apoptosis" bad ending is one long chain of [[TheReveal reveals]], concluding with Satoru being killed by his past self...who reveals himself to be 2011!Enomoto while doing so.]]
* WhamLine: The last line of the game:
-->[[spoiler:'''Mayuzumi:''' You're not... the Yukidoh Satoru I knew...]]
** In a similar vein, one of the last lines of "Apoptosis" {{bad end}}:
--->[[spoiler:'''Past!"Satoru":''' Don't you agree?... ''YUKIDOH''?]]
* WhiteVoidRoom: [[spoiler:The Hotarubi Mine transfer point room. Justified as it was specifically designed this way so that no one inside could tell where they were.]]
* WildMassGuessing: Practically required in order to understand the game.
* [[spoiler:WombLevel: Well, not actually a level, but the "red dreams" that the body-swapping characters have between transfers literally take place inside Utsumi's womb, before she gave birth to the twins]].
* YouCantFightFate: [[spoiler:many of Kokoro's bad endings come from trying to avoid being killed in the January 17th avalanche, and [[SelfFulfillingProphecy getting killed by their actions to avoid them]]. Averted in the True Ending]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Specifically averted. With the exception of Utsumi [[spoiler:and her twins]], everyone in the game has a natural hair color.
* YouMonster: At the beginning of the game, Kokoro mentions that she can't see Keiko as human due to what she's done in the past.
