Capcom is offering the chance for people across the globe to have their creations and personal images incorporated into the retail version of Remember Me, scheduled for release on PlayStation 3 , Xbox 360 and Windows PC next May, with the launch of two different initiatives. Set in Neo-Paris in 2084, Remember Me provides a vision of the world where personal memories have become a real world commodity that can be bought, traded and sold. Our heroine, Nilin, is an elite memory hunter who has had her memories wiped… and now she wants them back.
Already underway is the opportunity for designers and creative thinkers with an eye for future trends to design a billboard advertisement that would be placed in the world of Remember Me to form part of the vibrant backdrop of Neo-Paris. By visiting Adverts in 2084 contestants can view the advertising briefs for five fictional companies. Having selected one of these companies they will then be tasked with creating a billboard that promotes that brand to the citizens of Neo-Paris.
The second initiative, commencing on October 25th and running until November 29th, asks people to submit images of their most cherished memories along with a short description of why this moment was so important to them. Images would then be chosen at random to be incorporated into the Memory Overload sequences, a result of successful completion of one of Nilin’s signature attacks. Full details of this promotion will follow soon on the Remember Me Facebook page.
