A cyberpunk action title set in 2084, Remember Me puts players in control of Nilin, a memory hunter forced to roam the streets of Neo-Paris because her former employer, the Memorize Corporation, had her memories erased. In the world of Remember Me, nearly all of the populous has been implanted with Memorize's Sensation Engine (Sensen), which lets people digitize and share their memories with one another. A small group of resistance fighters known as Errorists reject the new technology, and gamers must find them to help bring down the corporation and restore Nilin's identity.
Neo-Paris is a bustling metropolis that boasts elements of a technological utopia, such as flying vehicles and sentient robots, but many residents have fallen through the cracks and are forced to live in the slums, or even the sewers. Players can explore this world on the ground or by clambering up walls and along ledges to engage in rooftop platforming. Guided by the Errorist's leader Edge, Nilin makes her way around the city, meeting friends to recover memories, and collecting ability-enhancing plug-ins left behind by fellow resistance fighters.
As the story unfolds, it becomes apparent that Nilin was tremendously skilled before her memory was wiped, not only in melee and stealth combat, but also in advanced memory retrieval techniques. She can enter the minds of other characters, and through a mini-game process known as memory remixing, she can change small details to affect their recollection and personality. Gamers can also steal memories from specific characters and then watch them unfold in real-time 3D to help avoid potential pitfall. As players engage in combat they earn experience points (known as PMP) that can be used to upgrade four different kinds of fighting moves. And while Nilin can only perform four different combos at any given time, gamers can customize the result of each individual button press within those combos, resulting in thousands of possible attacks.
