Developer DontNod's eagerly awaited venture into the future, REMEMBER ME, already had us chomping at the bit (check out our 2013 Games Preview in Issue 383 - available here).
Well consider us in need of a new bit after watching the new gameplay preview of Nilin, our memory impaired protagonist, kicking all kinds of ass across the St Michael district of Neo-Paris - including a roof top throwdown with Kid Santa (as amusing a boss as we've seen for a while)...
Personal memories can now be digitised, bought, sold and traded. The last remnants of privacy and intimacy have been swept away in what appears to be a logical progression of the explosive growth of social networks at the beginning of the 21st century. The citizens themselves have accepted this surveillance society in exchange for the comfort only smart technology can provide. This memory economy gives immense power over society to just a handful of people.
Remember Me™ is a 3rd person action adventure where players take on the role of Nilin, a former elite memory hunter with the ability to break into people’s minds and steal or even alter their memories. The authorities, fearful of her knowledge and capabilities arrested Nilin and wiped her memory clean. After her escape from prison, Nilin sets out on a mission to recover her identity, helped by her last and only friend. This search for her past leads to her being hunted by the very people that created this surveillance society.
REMEMBER ME is released on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in May 2013.
