Paris-based studio Dontnod Entertainment is developing a new digital title with the force behind the Final Fantasy series publishing.
No one really knows what the future holds, but for generations, science fiction authors the world over have been trying to give their own interpretations. While every single vision of what the future holds comes from a different mind, there are many similarities that are easy to spot. One of the biggest is the dystopian ideal, where the future isn't what we bargained for, and in fact, is quite a bit more horrible and oppressive than the world we currently live in. That's doubly true for video games, where the likes of Remember Me have shown a glimpse of a world that's beautifully depressing.
Neo-Paris was an incredible place full of life and beautiful cyberpunk vistas. We want to go back, hopefully sooner than later. Remember Me was a high concept sci-fi action game that melded rhythmic combat with memory games and action. It was a phenomenal title that didn't quite live up to its potential. That's why we have some requests for the sequel. This is our Remember Me 2 Sequel Wish List.
Tangible or not, memories are everywhere around us. You have the ones developed in your own head from experiences, and you have tangible memories holding digital information in your electronic device. Right now you’re syncing up the memories from digital to cerebral through the use of your eyes. Memories and thoughts are being conveyed for you to remember and process and remember again at a later date. Memories are everywhere and Remember Me takes this theme to heart and other developers should pay attention.
Memory is fragile. Who you are is essentially a collection of experiences coded and cataloged in your cranium for cross reference later. Your essence, your soul, is housed somewhere in your synapses. Without your memories you are no longer you. Just a hulking mass of animal instinct no different than the next poor sod who has had their memory wiped. Remember Me has a high sci-fi concept, but will it stick in the spaces between your synapses or trickle right out your ears?
After a long wait and only a few months before the game’s eventual release, Remember Me is finally giving us a trailer that shows off its “Memory Remix Gameplay.”
Remember Me traces the journey of Nilin, a woman who has the ability to change a person's memories. Set in futuristic Paris, Nilin searches for her own lost memory, battling her share of villains in the process. With such an intriguing premise, some publishers actually hesitated at having a woman as the main character!
