At first, I thought that Remember Me would be one of those games where I liked its ideas more than its execution. But, even though it's surrounded by some rough gameplay and well-worn templates, the core concept behind the game—control over what we choose to hold onto—comes to life in ambitious ways.
The first game from French dev studio Dontnod Entertainment puts players in a total re-imagining of the future, like you see in the best sci-fi. Remember Me revolves around the repercussions that scientific advancement has on individuals and society. The world-changing discovery in the game is a virtual memory digitization technology called Sensen, controlled by mega-conglomerate Memorize. Sensen implants started off of as a utopian dream, but, in 2084, memories can be sold, stolen or wiped.
