Dontnod has revealed the origins of its debut title, Remember Me.
One of the highlights of this year’s Gamescom, Remember Me started life as Adrift, a PlayStation 3 exclusive, but Sony decided to dump the project.
“They stopped a number of games last year at Sony and we took back the IP rights and were able to continue to develop it thanks to the support of the investors,” said Dontnod co-founder Oskar Guilbert.
“We were then able to sign the game to a publisher who’s portfolio is a better fit for the game.”
That publisher was Capcom, under whose guidance the project has evolved. “This project is not exactly the same,” said Guilbert. “It is an evolution. The concept of what we had with Sony was different.”
“Sony wanted to focus on a different type of game and we don’t really fit with that. But we’re in a very good relationship with them.”
