Capcom today announced their new game Remember Me, a sleek action/adventure set in Neo Paris, 2084, and starring Nilin (seen left), who’s a memory hunter on the run.
As you can see from the trailer, this proposed future for humanity has basically done away with secrecy – memories can be bought and sold, and people can know anything about anyone for the right price. Nilin was the apparently one of the best at this, but somewhere along the line, wouldn’t you know it, someone wiped her memory and now she’s determined to figure out why.
The May 2013 release blends quick, acrobatic traversal with some equally nimble combat. However, one of the game’s unique additions to the genre is the idea of “memory remixing,” which can be seen in the video below:
It’s an interesting notion – to change the world, all you really have to do is change someone’s mind. And in a world where that’s alarmingly possible… well, it’ll be fun to see where the game takes that concept.
