Vampyr Review – Dontnod succeeds with Moody Action RPG

Vampyr Review Finally, after months of salivating at the idea of sinking my teeth into this game I can play it. This is a review of Vampyr, the latest game by French developer Dontnod. Now, I got only got the game since Tuesday morning and my opinion below is formed based on around 6 hours of gaming. Set in 1918 in London – during the last days of The Great War and the start of the Spanish flu – you play as Doctor Jonathan Reid. Dr. Reid has recently returned from the front, but in London he was attacked, turned into...

Vampyr Preview – A Macabre Action RPG from Dontnod Entertainment

Vampyr Preview When SciFiEmpire.net first started in 2011 one of the first articles I wrote was on a game entitled Adrift – by Dontnod entertainment. The game studio was totally unknown to anyone, but what caught my eye was that they were French and were producing a Science Fiction action game. Adrift was only a production title and it would later in become known as Remember Me. Sadly, despite the impressive artwork and graphics the game suffered from a linear gameplay style and could not live up to expectations. Instead, Dontnod Entertainment continues to exist and is soon scheduled to release...

Remember Me PC Review!

Remember Me PC Review! About two years ago just after I started this blog I posted the first high-resolution art of a game called ‘Adrift’. It was the French developer ‘DONTNOD Entertainment’ first game. The art was an instant hit. I guess the lure of a cyberpunk Neo-Paris was just too good to pass on. The only questions remained were what kind of gameplay the game would have and whether the developer could handle such an ambitious project. Last year we saw the first screens and video’s of ‘Remember Me’ as it was then known and of protagonist ‘Nilin’. The gameplay seemed to resemble...

Remember Me (Adrift) Preview!

Last year we showed off the gorgeous artwork of Dontnod Entertainment’s Adrift, a game set in the year 2084 of which few other details were known. Now, at GamesCom, it was revealed that the title has changed to ‘Remember Me’ and that the game will be published by Capcom. The game’s protagonist is called Nilin, she is a Memory Hunter who has to hunt down her own memory in the cyberpunked inspired Paris of 2084. In this world people have been implanted with Sensation Engine that allows the user to exchange memories, this tech has been created by a company called Memoryeyes (I guess that makes them...

More ‘Adrift’ concept art from DontNod Entertainment.

Ever since the announcement of Adrift, DontNod Entertainment’s first game, in late august this year the concept art for the game has been an instance sucess on the web. Personally, I have always been a little starved of Cyberpunk art and proper wallpapers are even harder to come by. For that reason I have uploaded the remaining concept art for the game onto this website for your perusal. As for the game, well, since august nothing new has been announced, the release date is still fall 2012 but I am frankly sceptical that such a release date can be kept...

‘Adrift’ game preview! GamesCom.

‘Adrift’ game preview! GamesCom.

Adrift is the first game from ‘Don’tNod productions’, a new studio from France. At this years GamesCom convention in Cologne they revealed the first details of ‘Adrift’ (working title), which is a shooter with adventure and rpg elements in a trend that has been popular for a few years. The game is obviously inspired by cyberpunk with its neon/high-tech look reminiscent of movies such as Blade runner and The Fifth Element. However, the choce of setting isn’t so odd for a french company as France has a large comic-book history with a cyberpunk style going back decades, and indeed seems...
