Capcom’s Remember Me: Nilin Introduces Her Cyber Punk Sexy Self

-+*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.

remember me nilin character, cyber-punk babe


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.
