is an action game from Dontnod Entertainment and Capcom
The story takes place in the year 2084, set in a futuristic Paris
known as "Neo-Paris," a sprawling, beautiful, vibrant metropolis, made rich and prosperous with the development of a revolutionary new technology known as the Sensation Engine. Developed by the Memorize Corporation, the "Sensen" — as it's widely called — is a brain implant that allows people to alter their memories, deleting them, sharing them via the wireless pervasive 'Net, trading them, or even buying new ones that are distributed by Memorize, which acts as a central hub to store these memories. This has allowed the corporation to turn Neo-Paris into their own private surveillance state of sorts, with the interconnectivity giving them a vast degree of control over the population.
The hero of our story is Nilin, a "memory hunter" (a person specializing in targeting and stealing memories) in a resistance against Memorize, who was unique among her fellow hunters because of her ability to manipulate others' memories
by diving into them and changing minute details to create an alternate reality for that person to remember, instead of the real one she had changed. Nilin was captured by the corporation and had most of her memories erased, before they imprisoned her in a super-max prison called "La Bastille." Here, she was contacted by a mysterious hacker called "Edge," a leader of a guerilla revolutionary movement known as "The Errorists," who sought to bring to light the corruption of Memorize and hopefully bring them down. With his help, Nilin escapes into the underground, and- after fighting off waves of mutants known as "Leapers" — once people who became so addicted to their Sensen it degraded and changed them — she makes it to the surface in the slums of Neo-Paris, where she officially rejoins Edge's cause.
Nilin's goal, however, is to recover her lost memories and find out exactly what happened to her, hoping to clear herself of her status as a fugitive.
After all, she is the hunter. So why now has she become "the hunted?"
