Video Game / Forget Me Not: My Organic Garden

"So Organa, could you get a fresh Kidney from the first greenhouse?"

Forget Me Not: My Organic Garden is a very odd take on the "clicker" type of game, developed by CAVYHOUSE.

Organa is the apprentice to Irene, owner of "Irene's Parlor". Their business is harvesting organs... from trees. The local villagers have various uses for these magical body parts, from bringing objects to life, to using them as fertilizer.

A Roguelike prequel starring Irene, The Sealed Ampoule, was released in 2021.

Forget Me Not: My Organic Garden provides examples of:

  • Accent Upon The Wrong Syllable: The Boy's doll, once brought to life, speaks like this. One example:
    Doll: Yes, I heard anyone can BUY organs at this SHOP. But as you CAN see. I am not a human, but a doll...
    ... Stomach. I want a Stomach. If I put the ORGAN in my body, it will move that part OF my body, correct...?
    Irene: In your body? I already told your owner this, but you can't put multiple organs in a single body.
    If the souls in each organ enter one body, a 'terrible thing' will happen...
    Doll: Is there noTHING that can be done about that?
    Irene: Well, if you really insist, there is a special chemical that can remove the soul from the organ.
    If using an organ without the soul, it can move part of a body. ...But it's a bit expensive.
    Doll: Oh, if that IS an option, then PLEASE do it...!
  • Alchemy Is Magic: Alchemy is how the organ trees work, and the Mincemeat is called by the Witch as "magical".
  • All-Accessible Magic: The Young Girl in the Raincoat can do magic apparently without being anyone special, and was just following instructions.
  • Animate Inanimate Object: A function of the magic organs.
  • Came Back Wrong: Irene states that trying to bring a dead creature back to life with a magic organ won't restore its soul, instead replacing it with the organ's. She knows this from experience.
  • Camera Abuse: During the Woman in Black's last visit, black stomach acid splatters on the screen when Organa is hit by it.
  • Cap: Unlike the other generators, there's a non-obvious limit on the amount of mincemeat that can be stacked at the bottom of the grinder, it's about 40 pieces.
  • Captain Oblivious: Irene's friend Hamomoru, who isn't aware of what Irene grows, or that the 'haunted house' Irene asks her to check out is Chika and En's home.
  • Cardiovascular Love: The Doctor's quests, who is in love with Irene, have a Heart Symbol for them.
  • Comically Missing the Point: When the doctor Man talks about Self-Surgery:
    Man: You said you were worried about putting organs in people, right?
    Irene: Ah, yes. I did say that.
    Man: So I've been thinking about it. Maybe if I put them in myself, I could get you to think about me!
    Irene: Umm... well...
    Man: But it's very difficult to put organs in oneself. It requires a lot of practice.
    So to practice, I'll need about 70 Kidneys. And I'll put them in some human models.
    Irene: Ahh. I don't mind, but is that really okay?
    Man: Ha, since it's just a Kidney it will be fine even if I mess up with one.
    Irene: Ummm... is that really the concern here?
  • Creepy Child: A couple of the potential customers.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: En, the Woman in Black's brother. The reason she's collecting Excellent organs is because En was blasted to pieces during one of her experiments, and she's implanting them into his parts to put him back together. He's completely rotted away by the time Hamomoru discovers him.
  • Ditzy Genius: The local Witch, who at one point mixes up mercury and ink, but knows enough about magic to create her own Homonculi.
  • Double Unlock: To unlock and therefore reveal the existence of the multiple Excellent Kidney delivery quests, Organa must first possess the number of Kidneys needed to be delivered.
  • The Face: All of the customers make deals with Irene and never even meet Organa, with the exception of the Woman In Black.
  • Featureless Protagonist: Organa. Until the reveal.
  • Hero of Another Story: Hamomoru was the protagonist of an earlier CAVYHOUSE game, This Starry Midnight We Make.
  • Humanoid Abomination: The Woman in Black/Chika. While Irene created plants that grew organs with souls, the Woman in Black uses bits of her own soul to grow organs from her arms.
  • Love Makes You Dumb: The local doctor is so smitten with Irene, he's willing to perform surgery on himself just to get her attention. Thankfully, Irene talks him out of it.
  • Luck-Based Mission: Sap-based missions since Sap appears at chance, not by any clear timing.
  • Meaningful Name: Organa's job involves a lot of organs.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: The Quiet Villager quests; Organa buying animals to help with the gardening means that they can't help the local farmers, requiring Irene's organs to attract more. This can happen with only 5 frogs bought and 3 moles, and yet they report a loss of moles. So it seems to be a very fragile ecosystem.
  • No Name Given: All of Irene's customers are only known by a designation rather than a name, such as "Boy" or "Witch". The only exception is Chika, the Woman in Black.
  • Opposite-Sex Clone: An odd variant; the Boy that wants an animate doll designed it to be a female version of himself.
  • Our Homunculi Are Different: The Witch's (eventual) creations are tiny, but can help cultivate the trees in Irene's garden by releasing hormones. Also their tradition bottled-ness is referenced in the "Bottling Dwarves" quest for having one at Level 2.
  • Our Witches Are Different: There's one Witch, and her quests are represented by a pointy witch hat.
  • Shout-Out: To Snow White, with the quest for getting a homunculus to level 5: "Snow White's Dwarves".
  • Spare Body Parts: The fact that humans have this with two kidneys, is referenced with the doctor Man talks about possibly messing up his Self-Surgery plan:
    Man: Ha, since it's just a Kidney it will be fine even if I mess up with one.
  • The Reveal: Organa is Irene's cat, after a death and "revival" with a magic organ.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: The Stoat family, which Irene helps without payment.
  • Taking the Bullet: During the Woman in Black's last visit, Organa gets wounded protecting Irene from deadly stomach acid.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: Organa is not a human, nor is she the original soul of the body she inhabits. She is actually a harvested organ reanimating the body of Irene's deceased cat.
  • Vague Stat Values: The effects of the pets are described only in vague terms like "faster" and "quicker" experience gathering and water refill.
  • "World's Best" Character: The doctor Man, after receiving 70 Kidneys to practice on:
    Man: Hehehe. Just you watch. I'll become the best surgeon in the world!
    Irene: ...Maybe I should stop him now?
  • World Tree: Some reference, under the name "Tree of Life", which is apparently what Witches call the original organ trees, and their original fruits, Seraphim Fruits, unlike the imitation trees and fruits that Irene uses.
