Total Recall is a full-3D free to play browser-based game capable of rendering console-like graphics. The game will feature micro-transactions, PVP and PVE environments as well as a collaborative "memory quest" system.

Total Recall will also leverage a specially designed engine with a technology capable of managing and creating a large scale 3D MMO within a browser platform.

Welcome to Rekall, the company that with one little implant can turn your dreams into real memories.  For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his ordinary existence.  But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. With the line between fantasy and reality blurred and the fate of his world hanging in the balance, Quaid goes on the run to discover his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.  Directed by Len Wiseman. Screenplay by Kurt Wimmer and Mark Bomback and James Vanderbilt. Inspired by the short story "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale" by Philip K. Dick. Produced by Neal H. Moritz and Toby Jaffe.
