Capcom & Remember Me Offer to Remember You via Two Promotions


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.

Developer Interview – SpikySnail(The Splatters)


spikysnail logo

When Xbox Live Arcade game The Splatters launched in April of 2012, my first look at the game was a launch trailer, the trailer persuaded me to download the demo, and the demo convinced me to buy the game.  I played it with my 11 year old son and we loved trying to beat our best scores and we marveled at the top scores on each of the levels.  The Splatters features some really cool “jelly physics” and some brilliant use of slow motion effects.  It also features a replay theater similar to the Trials games and allows you to see how the insane scores at the top of the leaderboard were achieved.

The Splatters also has a cute and humorous charm to it.  It’s got a wide variety of levels and several modes of play.  It also reviewed well.  Many of the larger video game review sites scored it 80/100 or above, and the Metacritic user reviews put it at a respectable 8.7 out of 10.  So then why is The Splatters developer and indie game studio SpikySnail more than a little concerned about their financial state?  Despite The Splatters being a generally well received game, it didn’t sell well enough to make all of their money problems go away.  So they labor on.  Doing that which they love most, making fun games.

Being a small team is a big job (just ask anyone at fizmarble).  SpikySnail co-founder Sagi Koren shed some light on how an indie developer gets it done.
