Remember Me “stays away from generic violence”

Posted By | On 21st, Aug. 2012

Don’t you forget about me.

 

 

In an interview with The Metro, Jean-Maxime Moris stated that in the entirety of Remember Me, only one person is killed at the hands of the protagonist Nilin, and that person is in a man in the demo.

Remember Me, announced at gamescom 2012, is Capcom’s foray into a Neo-Parisian cyberpunk action-adventure where the primary weapon is the ability to destroy and replace memories.

Playing as Nilin, a former ‘hunter’ and memory stealer, she has the same done to her; Blade Runner meets Mirror’s Edge.

Moris wants to shakeup the way we look at action games of this nature, telling the Metro: “It won’t be just that very nice world-saving person. And she won’t be that mass murdering…. the only person she kills in the game is that guy in the demo.

“There is no killing, I wanted to stay away from the generic violence that is flowing into most of today’s video games. There will be shades of grey and we really want to ask moral questions about her, about how she acts.”

Developers Dontnot have also gone so far as almost entirely limiting the need for any guns at all, banned from Neo-Paris -like in real life, or anywhere that isn’t the USA- and are only carried by senior officials. Instead, Nilin uses a ‘hunting glove’ to remove cherished memories of loved ones, leaving enemies incapacitated, but alive: “She basically overloads their memories and pieces of themselves come flying out of the memory. They’re just there lying on the ground, they’ll get up eventually – they may have forgotten they are married but they’ll get up eventually.”

For the full enthralling interview, head on over to the Metro. Thanks, X360.
