Remember Me NYCC Panel Details Neo-Paris And The Game’s World

By Ishaan . October 22, 2012 . 2:59pm

At the New York Comic-Con, Capcom held a panel featuring producer Mat Hart and lead artist Aleksi Briclot, both members of the Remember Me development team, who showed off playable footage from the game and discussed its world. You can watch the panel in its entirety below:

 

 

A few points of interest from the panel:

 

  • Remember Me takes place in Neo-Paris, a city that has gone through civil war and natural disasters. When the game takes place, the city is in an era of regrowth and re-construction.

 

  • Citizens are looking forward to a period of peace. The new memory technology, Memoreyes, that the game’s story works around, lets them forget painful memories of the past.

 

  • In the world of Remember Me, memories are bought, shared, traded, and stolen. Memories are analogous to social networks like Twitter. Everyone has a memory implant that allows them to record their memories.

 

  • Neo-Paris is divided into three areas: Deep-Paris (slums), Mid-Paris (closest to current-day Paris), and High-Paris (a Utopia filled with high-reaching towers where people freely share memories).

 

  • The goal, art-wise, was to create a believable future. One example of this is how jeans are still in fashion and Nilin wears them, but that she also wears futuristic-looking gear on her arms.

 

  • The device on Nilin’s right arm is a “Spammer”. It allows her to fire pieces of junk data that can be used to overload other people’s sensory devices, which are the aforementioned memory device implants everyone has.

 

 

Remember Me will be released in May 2013 for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

    Can’t stand the main character’s voice.  Hate british accents especially given the setting.

    I’m officially hyped for this game and hopefully, it’ll live up to my expectations.

    So this game was made by Capcom’s Western Development Division??? Didn’t know Capcom had a western development division that made games. I thought only the Japanese faction of Capcom just produce the games while the Western branches are just there to look pretty and have those Japanese made games published in those western countries.

    • Romored

      No, this game is made by a third-party developer, Dontnod Entertainment, that is French. Capcom is just publishing.

      Capcom’s in-house western development studio for the most part is Capcom Vancouver, who develop the Dead Rising games.
