GamesCom 2012: Remember Me Brings Horror To The Digital Age
Capcom's Remember Me will launch for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in May 2013. The game puts the player into the role of Nilin who has the ability to break into people's minds and steal and alter their memories. What are we slowly giving up with the age of social networks in regards to privacy?
Remember Me aims to shine a light on what we are all forgetting to see.
From the Press Release
Personal memories can now be digitized, 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 have 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.
