Adrift Teaser trailer
Originally posted on IGN.com
Adrift (a working title) is going to be a third-person action adventure game set in the bleak near future city of Neo-Paris. We can expect combat, exploration, and puzzle solving from the gameplay.
The premise is that people have figured out how to digitize and store memories so that they can be traded, exchanged, bought, and sold. People are fitted with a Sensen device, short for Sensation Engine, on the back of their neck. Whoever controls these memories would have incredible power. Adrift has the intriguing tagline "Remember you soon."
Set in 2084 (purposely timed 100 years after George Orwell's dystopian novel 1984), Neo-Paris is meant to be a believable future city -- a city we might actually find ourselves in in a few decades. Adrift will be science fiction, but don't expect to be warping across the galaxy or zapping tentacle monsters.
While this idea certainly brings many interesting possibilities for conflict and drama to mind, Don't Nod wouldn't give me any specifics about what the game's story will be or what the player's objectives are. The developer just wanted to let the world know it is working on something that could be big.
Adrift is currently intended for retail release in late 2012. With only a year to go, it shouldn't be too long before we start learning more details and seeing what the game actually looks like. But what do you think? Sound interesting?
