Hello IndieDB !
Here is an article to announce the arrival of dont_forget_me on indiedb.
So, what's this game?
First of all, the teaser :
So, dont_forget_me is a narrative investigation game who takes place in a world that is ruled by a totalitarian government controlled by a megacorporation. In order not to repeat past mistakes, each individual is obliged to have a memory chip implanted that records all his or her memories.
-- From here, there is spoilers! --
You play Fran, a young woman with amnesia. You are taken in by Bernard, a specialist in memory copying, an illegal activity that he carries out in an undeclared clinic.
Thanks to the copiers, people are able to keep duplicates of their memories off their chip, which the government oppresses to avoid perpetuating rebellious ideas.
However, one day, the arrival of a government man will change their daily lives. He has a secure chip. As you explore his most recent memories, you will discover the existence of a tool for mass manipulation and crowd control.
Using new technology, you will be able to connect virtually to other chip carriers. You’ll have to delve into their memories to relive past scenes in order to conduct the investigation.
Who is behind this, and more importantly, how will you choose to stop it?
The player alternates between exploration scenes in which he must search for information in the environment, interactive dialogue scenes, and text puzzle scenes in which he must delve into the memories of NPCs looking for the right words, in the manner of «Her story».
The game will be released on PC, Mac and Linux, one day (TBA)
Thanks for reading and most of all... Don't forget us...
