Pour la version française du projet, il faut descendre :)

 With the advent of omnipotent mega-corporations, the world’s nations united under one government and humanity finally achieved a lasting peace. Under this government, citizens are encouraged to install chips directly into their minds with the promise of living a life without memory loss, as they said "The chip will never let you forget". But if one wishes to share these memories with others, or to try and preserve them elsewhere, memory clinics outlawed by the government are their only option. 

You will play as Fran, an amnesiac with a blank memory chip, who works for Bernard, a clinic amanuensis that has taken her in. 

Heavily influenced by other adventure games like Deconstructeam’s Red Strings Clubs and Lucas Pope’s Return of the Obra Dinn, "dont_forget_me" is an upcoming cyberpunk adventure game for the Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems (we may also release it on consoles).  

There are a lot more influences. These influences include: 

Shinichirō Watanabe’s Cowboy Bepop, Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner,   Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner: 2049, 2K’s Bioshock, Georges Orwell’s  1984, Philip K. Dick’s ouevre, Magic Sword and more...

  • Impactful dialogue that affects the story!  Be prepared to be judged by characters!  
  • Gorgeous pixel art! 
  • A bunch of Easter eggs! 
  • Really-Ultra-Long-Nonsense-Composed words.
  • Available in both English and French (with the possibility of further translations down the line).
  • We may include an original synthwave-jazz soundtrack, if the budget permits.  Actually, we can't, so the cat is crying :'(

10.000€ _  Congratulations everyone! You’re getting the game you funded :) 

15.000€ _  The original soundtrack we talked about.  

25.000€ _  The game will be translated to Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and German. 

45.000€ _  We can hire another full-time Unity developer to assist with the project. 

...

 If these goals aren’t reached, that doesn't mean we aren't going to implement some of the updates listed in our funding goals. It just means it will take us a little bit longer to get them to you. 

If our funding goal is met, the profits will be divided like this:

  • 80% goes to the game’s development. 
  • 5% goes to Kickstarter's fees.
  • 5% goes to taxes and the production of merchandise. 
  • 10% goes to those I hire to assist me.

The money you pledge will allow the development of the game to continue and thrive. I'll be able to dedicate myself entirely to developing the game without any distractions. 

 1€ _ Name in the credits.

15€ _  Your name in the credits and a digital copy of the game (this would include the OST if the milestone goal is reached). 

25€ _  All the above rewards and some original digital illustrations.

60€ _  All the above rewards and you’ll be able to leave a message ingame.

Dans un futur proche, le monde est en paix, les nations sont gérées par un gouvernement unique. Ceci a été rendu possible grâce au développement et à l'avènement des méga-corporations, toujours plus présentes et maintenant devenues incontournables. Ce qui a conduit tous les citoyens à se faire greffer une puce mémorielle, directement dans le cerveau. Avec les promesses d'un confort de vie, amélioré, de ne plus oublier ce qui a été appris, les bons moments. De conserver la mémoire éternellement … Ainsi, “N’oubliez plus rien grâce à la Puce” nous disait-on… Cependant, il est impossible de partager les souvenirs ou de les sauvegarder sur un support externe… Sauf si l'on se rend dans un centre d'extraction jugé  illégale, que l’on appelle  “Clinique”.

Vous incarnerez Fran, une personne amnésique donc sans passé, sa puce mémorielle étant totalement vierge. En attendant de pouvoir se retrouver, elle travaille avec Bernard un copiste mémoriel hors-la-loi, qui l’a recueilli.

“dont_forget_me” est un jeu d’enquête, d’aventure et narratif en pixelart sur Windows, Mac et Linux (et plus encore ?)

Le jeu se déroule dans un univers futuriste cyberpunk dystopique aux influences vintages, noir… Si le temps était une boucle, le futur rejoindrait le passé, non ?

“dont_forget_me” est un jeu fortement influencé par le travail de Deconstructeam sur Red Strings Clubs et The Return of the Obra Dinn de Lucas Pope. Il y a bien sur d’autres influences, venant d’autres domaines : Cowboy Bepop de Shinichirō Watanabe, Blade Runner 1 & 2049 de Ridley Scott et Denis Villeneuve respectivement, Bioshock de 2K, 1984 de Georges Orwell et les oeuvres de Philip K. Dick, Magic Sword…

  • Des dialogues, genre, beaucoup de dialogues. Les gens aiment parler.
  • Des choix de dialogues… Et donc des choix moraux ! Soyez prêt à vous faire juger par les personnages !
  • Un gameplay évolutif.
  • Une histoire captivante, avec des cliffhangers, du drama, de l’humour et des émotions.
  • Votre manière de vivre l’histoire.
  • Un monde vivant et fascinant avec du pixelart cool !
  • Des oeufs de pâques (lol), des références, des mystères et …
  • Unity Engine ! (Ouais ok, vous avez raisons, c’est pas tellement une feature…).
  • Des vraiment-ultra-super-longs mots composés absurdes.
  • Langue française et anglaise (peut-être plus ?).

Nous voudrions ajouter une bande originale Noir-Jazz-Synthwave captivante mais actuellement, nous n’avons ni les compétences, ni l’argent pour nous le permettre. Du coup nous sommes tristes :’(

Même le chat pleure…

10.000€ _ Le jeu est financé, merci !

15.000€ _ Une vraie bande originale… ET PLUS DE RÉCOMPENSES ! Et un chat heureux ! Et des développeurs heureux !

25.000€ _ Plus de traductions : Italiano, Español, Português et Deutsch.

45.000€ _ On part à la recherche d’un vrai développeur Unity. Pas moi qui suis en apprentissage autonome...

...

C'est quoi les "objectifs" ?

Les objectifs sont du contenu supplémentaire pour le jeu une fois  l'objectif de financement réalisé. Ça ne veut pas dire qu'on ne  l'implémentera pas plus tard dans le jeu. Ils sont là pour nous aider à vous faire un meilleur jeu ! 

Les nombres sont justes une estimation mais 80% ira dans le développement du jeu, 5% ira dans les frais de Kickstarter, 5% dans les taxes, production des goodies, ... Et 10% aux gens qui m'aident sur le projet

En d'autres mots :

  • Une grosse partie de l'argent servira à ma survie et au développement du jeu. Avec ça, je devrais d'être concentré 100% de mon temps à la création du jeu
  • Une partie de l'argent ira aux choses "administratives" : les frais de Kickstarter, les taxes, production des goodies, ...
  • Et enfin, rémunérer de la manière la plus juste les gens qui m'ont aidé à réaliser ce projet.

1€ _ Votre nom dans les crédits.

15€ _ Votre nom dans les crédits et une copie digitale du jeu. (+ la BO digitale si l'objectif est atteint).

25€ _ Toutes les récompenses ci-dessus et des illustrations digitales + wallpaper.

40€ _ Toutes les récompenses ci-dessus et votre nom dans les fichiers du gouvernement.

60€ _ Toutes les récompenses ci-dessus et laissez votre message en jeu.

110€ _ Toutes les récompenses ci-dessus et des goodies (Tote bag, postcard, illustrations A3, CD de la bande originale (si l'objectif est atteint), une copie de mon carnet de route).

(Limité à 5) 200€ _ Toutes les récompenses digitales et votre chat dans le jeu ! YEAH !

(Limité à 10) 300€ _Toutes les récompenses digitales et vous devenez un patient !

(Unique) 250€ _ Les récompenses du palier à 110€ mais vous avez le vrai carnet de route. Le seul et l’Unique !

(Unique) 400€ _ Les récompenses du palier à 110€  et vous avez la vraie casquette de Fran ! (casquette : https://imgur.com/Hi7YhWU)

(Unique) 5000€ _ Toutes les récompenses ci-dessus (sauf le chat et le patient) et vous faites une histoire de A à Z avec nous !

(Limité à 2) 8500€ _ Toutes les récompenses (sauf le chat et le patient) et vous avez tous nos jeux et goodies offerts...à vie.

Robin “Biggs” FAU _ Je suis le créateur principal du jeu, ainsi que gamedesigner, développeur principal, scénariste, designer et expert en montage de meuble (non, je déconne).

Guillaume THOMAS _  Second créateur du jeu ! Il m’aide sur toute la partie pixelart et design. Actuellement étudiant, il ne peut pas être à 100% sur le jeu mais il me rejoindra une fois qu’il sera diplômé, yeah \o/

Mélanie “MLP” Pourin _ Experte en communication. Elle nous aide sur la partie d’identité visuelle du jeu (logo, kickstarter, …) et aussi, sur le community management.

Chat _ Parce que nous aimons les chats. Et il y en a de toutes les formes et couleurs.

We’d also like to thank Jade Doumani for assisting us with the English translation and writing.

Risks and challenges

First of all, if you reach this part, thanks for reading everything above and for testing the prototype.

The biggest challenge was about coding, but during the development of the prototype, most of the technical problem have been resolved.

Actually, the release date is just estimated. If the kickstarter give us more time to finalize the game, we will take it. We want to have a qualitative result. The amount of work isn't a problem for us ! We will do everything we can to make sure you spend a good time playing our game.

Last but not least, the kickstarter can change our lives, and YOU, can change our life !

Thank for all, stay safe and dont_forget_ ... us ?
