Remember Me, the creation of Capom and Paris-based developer Dontnod Entertainment, looks to be a sexy, slick cyberpunk feast of a game. The game itself looks awesome, but naturally, being obsessed with characters , it’s Nilin herself which captures this author’s interest.
Nilin is a Sophisticated, Cyber-Punk Heroine
The theme of Remember Me, and the motive of Nilin herself, is hinted at through her opening words in the trailer: ‘A friend once said “The memory of a single man’s a fortress more complex than the vastest of cities.” Here, Nilin introduces us to the amnesia-themed story. She continues, ‘But we invented a key to the fortress: a son’s first words, a mother’s last words, a lover’s kiss, a father’s deception. There are no secrets any more. And if remixing a single memory can change a man’s life, then changing a single man could remix the world. That was my job, until someone did it to me.’
Nilin’s voice in this trailer (wonderfully acted by the way) speaks of a noble character. She’s motivate by a revenge story after being betrayed by her father (*1), she’s suffering from amnesia (that now hackneyed dramatic device) and she (luck lucky girl) gets to investigate an awesome-looking grimy cyber-punk city ala Deus Ex.
Of course, Capcom made sure to highlight Nilin’s pixel-ass as early as possible—which cheapens her character a little—but nevertheless, this is one slick looking, smart talking, strong feminine hero that we cannot wait to discover more of.

There’s likely no more nobler endeavour that a video game designer, studio or publisher can make than to aim to help teach children through games.

Killzone Shadow Fall might look absolutely stunning but it’s precisely the same game only with better graphics. Which, ironically, is so typically Sony – failing to deliver genuinely new gameplay experience but simply pumping out the same old tripe with better visuals. Killzone Shadow Fall was the PS4’s most hype moment during the Sony […]
