A new video for Capcom and Dontnod Entertainment’s upcoming cyberpunk action-platformer, Remember Me explores the title’s central theme.
In the video (embedded below), creative director Jean-Maxime Moris spends six and a half minutes discussing memories as they exist in 2084’s Neo-Paris and how the Sensen technology—which can capture, record, and distribute memories digitally—influences Remember Me’s gameplay.
“An immense power lays in the hands of Memorize, which controls—through memories—the most intimate and personal data of 99% of the population,” describes Moris. “Everyone is perfectly aware of this, but at the same time is willing to take the risk in exchange for the unreal pleasures of memory sharing. there is, however, a small group of activists who are fighting against Memorize. They call themselves the Errorists, and you get to play the most gifted of them all. Her name is Nilin, an elite memory hunter. She has the power to dive into your mind and steal your memories.”
Remember Me hacks its way onto PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 June 4 in North America, June 7 in Europe. Look forward to our hands-on preview with Capcom’s cyberpunk thriller next week.
