Potential fans for the game will be glad to know that Remember Me, the latest third person action adventure by Capcom and Dontnod Entertainment is set for release next month, more specifically on the 6th June 2013. To mark the game being just a month away from release, creative director Jean-Maxime Moris discusses the games central theme – memories – in this latest trailer and highlights how this theme shapes the world in 2084. Not only is the central theme discussed, but also the memory-related gameplay mechanics.
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. During the course of the story, Nilin will start remembering who she was and re-learning all the fighting moves that made her one of the world’s leading memory hunters.
