Hoy chummers!

So the idea was thrown and why not putting some ideas here to make a cyberpunk game?

There are plenty of game engine available.


so what type of game? TPS, FPS, RTS, Adventure Game, Board Game?



Probably would be the easiest to have a large group working on something like an adventure game. Something like an FPS would end up having the game essentially made by a few people and everyone else would be left out.

also I like adventure games


I would really like to see an open world Cyberpunk RPG (First or Third Person). Basically Deus Ex with an open world, and lots of detail.




Why not an RPG adventure with FPS action thrown in occasionally?


None of you shazbots know the first thing about making video games.

This will never happen.



Yeah that's my line of thinking as well. Shame, there are no good cyberpunk games anymore.



That could be cool.

Honestly, I'm okay with just about anything as long as it's cyberpunk. There isn't a lot to choose from out there.


Sadly, this is true.



Dubs speak the ugly truth.

Sorry, guys, this is never going to happen.



>None of you shazbots know the first thing about making video games.

Pretty sure the first thing is to turn on the computer, which I don't mean to brag but I'm something of an expert in.

Did I get it right? Can we make the game now?






Ideas remain, chum.

What if someone read this topic in some years and make a great game out of it?

What if someone knows something about game making here or wish to learn?

Be cool man, let the stream flow.

Also i like point &click games and the kind of Flashback graphics and this too


There are free and non free p&c makers, i begin the tutorials of wintermute.



I want this, as well.



Even assuming everyone on this thread knew how to make a game, it would at the very least be Black Mesa vaporware-tier. It would be more realistic to find a not too complex, easy to mod game and throw in a cyberpunk story/art direction and additional cyberpunk game mechanics like hacking.



So Snatcher with more RPG elements and better FPS "action"?


But I have made games, silly anon.


To be fair, its easier to make a point and click adventure game than modding something already made.


Making an adventure game should be pretty easy. Also what do you think about a platformer or a scrolling beat-em-up?



I have made several (adventure) games


Alright guys lets think of a story, and Imma make it in AGS, see if you like it.



Also, if you want to toss me some backgrounds or characters or any sprite, really, that would be appreciated. Backgrounds are usually 320x200 pixels, characters ar about 150x40 at the most.






Using wintermute we can use a higher definition no?



yes, but too much effort for me to make assets larger than the minimum




Is the idea of mixing 2d p&c and 3d virtual world possible with standard game makers?

Can the story not just focus on one kind of technology?

There are lots of sotries in the "-punk" genres that focus too much in one breaktrough new technology that changes everything, instead of taking a more plausible route and addidng a bit of everything.

The future will have quatum computers, drones, AI, genetic customization, space travel, augs, exosqueletons, AR…



Gravity distortion devices.



a futuristic world

but in some favela shithole where all the guns were taken away

and it's about some shazbot finding the last gun remaining and purging the streets with it

r8 idea



I like



allah wills it, use it as the basis for your gaym



I'm doing it






GRAVITY DISTORTION DEVICES, LADS. come on, it's something that hasn't been seen all that much before. read up on john titor.



ok, this will be fun.


john titor is so 1999core



What gun should it be? I'm thinking Rhiappa Rhino or Calico Liberty 3



they're both nice snowflake guns, but i'm imagining something that wouldn't mind being forgotten in a leaky cellar for a few decades, a modern tactified AR maybe, the joke being it's not that modern any more?


File: 1435350925058.png (780 B, 49x75, 49:75, MCdraft1.png)

well that was stupid

I've been composing for around 5-6 years now. Only started doing /cyber/ stuff a few months ago, but I'd be happy to do the soundtrack for this game once it starts getting underway.

If you need examples of my work, I can provide.

If this project doesn't have a writer, my tox is in the email field.

I'd be down to write for a /cyber/ game project.



I don't like it

Unless the game is some beat'em up

We need megacorps, plots, elite hacker, augs and virtual reality

Annd big guns


I was thinking about this

You are a simple guy who fix coffee machines. But, syntho coffee machine are all linked in some sort of matrix, like everything in the world. Every machine or brand is a part of a big corpo.

You're a freelancer coffee machine fixer. You have a small condo and a cat.

Some big corp ask you to investigate theyre machine because there is some bug/brouzouf stolen. They think one of it's employee hacked a machine. You go see and jack you in the syntho coffee network. (From 2D point &click you go to 3d virtual world)

Then you find that little insignificant coffee machine hack is eventually a breach of some sort used by an elite hacker team to steal some new tech information etc..

unfortunatly the evil organisation of elite hacker followed your path and try to kill you, maybe erase you from the network. You are a hobo that need little havking jobs to survive then find who are they, why they tried to kill you, what technology are they tryin to steal, etc.. And where is your damn cat.



Maybe the stolen technology was uploaded in your augmented brain after you discover an intruder on the network.

You were ringing the alarm and hés been killed by demon guards of the corpo.

But he uploaded the stolen informations into you and that's why they try to find you.


File: 1435390749941.png (1.99 KB, 210x90, 7:3, 1435367834416-1.png)


why not something like this?

also, i just realized that all the transparent areas i made by erasing stuff turned into grey globs, so disregard them.



And here we have a first part simple and fun that can be considered a tutorial.

(Going from your condo to the corpo, basics of hacking etc)

Someone try to kill you and you learn basics of action mechanics.

Then you are on your own trying to survive.

And by the way there is a plot twist because the evil hackers who stole things and try to kill you are in fact the good guys and you finally go with them to fuck the system.

I will write down the story of steve noneck and his coffee machine adventures and you will see if it's cool.

Pastebin for new chumbas



This isn't terrible.


So, what kind of coffee machines are we talking here?



A syntho coffee machine (or any other name and brand)

4%real coffee guaranted

With a scanner that scan the implant of employees. The hero will connect to it and see the registers etc in the virtual world to find where is the bug/breach.



here's mine




added you




Great i like it



What program/chat can we use where we can share images or files and keep a chat group open.

In tox if we disconnect the group disappear



That's annoying. We need some kind of permanent group.

I saw you suggested retroshare. Is it any good?



im trying it out, it seems pretty good from what i can tell, you got forums, torrent style file sharing, VOIP, group chats, email and cool shit



These are quite good

what do you use to make them?

Literally any graphics program could be used to do that.



MS Paint


All y'all pixelart is amateur. Learn from people who did it back in the day. You're supposed to make it look like you're working with limitations, not make LEGO models of everything.

Musically they sound great. I'd argue that some of them don't fit what their titles comprehend, though.

Tox ID


And retrocert



As a shortcut that works, but usually its a mixture of that+touchups at minimum.

Redrawing either from RL or from scratch gives the best results though, specially if you want to keep the style coherent (ie sprites don't clash with backgrounds).



then make us some art


I'm an aspiring concept artist. Are you guys still looking for one?



Yeah, I agree, I've never been good with titles.

Thanks for the previous comment, though.



What's your name on retroshare chumba?



Can you show us some examples of your work?

Well at least titles are an easy fix though (and in a game,most people won't see 'em anyways).



You're too good. ;_;

Hopefully I can learn something from you over the course of this project.

My production quality really isn't that great, but I know my theory.



I'm happy to help you out however I can. I've been playing music for nearly 30 years and have been doing production work for almost 17 at this point. I'm not the best, but I know my way around reasonably well. Add me on Retroshare, and I'll answer any questions you have, though am heading to bed fairly soon.



Tried adding you, but you're not showing up in the network.

Also I don't think you could answer the questions I have in such short time, so I'll save them for another day.

We've got time, chumba.

30 years though No wonder



I'm getting a message that reads "Connection refused by remote peer." I've turned off my VPN and provided an exception on my firewall, but this program is kind of clunky.

I'll keep this thread bookmarked, so won't lose track.

If you're the reading type, I can recommend some good books on getting your technical chops up, if that is your main concern.



I think you copied the wrong cert.

Just click on the add+ (friend) go manual and copy the key that appears above the place where you are supposed to copy the person you want to add.

Feeling inspired to make some music for this. This is just a start, but I could yank a chunk of it out as a loop if you guys wanted to use it.




the connection is refused because they haven't added you yet.

once they do, you'll be able to connect.



Got it, thanks. I hope people don't try to add the wrong one I screwed up.



Sounds good for a nightclub/bar loop.


It's ok, they will probably realize what happened and just follow the thread to reach the right one.



Me again.

I don't know how far anyone's gotten building anything, but RPG Maker VX Ace may also be an option.

Can someone send me a message on RetroShare? I'm still not convinced I'm doing it right at all. I'm usually very good with software, but this program is baffling.



Rpg maker is used to make zelda-like games not point & click.



I know, I have it. I didn't know how far down the path we are with p&c. Not trying to derail, just putting out another option.


Update on the game progress for any schway chummers who are interested

>game will be point&click+rpg

>pixel artstyle

>protag is coffee machine repair guy who gets in way over his head after a supposed simple repair job

>protag will have small robot/drone sidekick that will be useful

>android girl love interest

>game is divided into 2 types of sections- runs and not runs

>runs are mission areas where you gotta get shit done

>not runs are when you're exploring hub areas and interacting with people/the environment, collect clues and equipment, etc

>for non-combat challenges there will be a number of different approaches/methods your character can overcome

>different methods are






>different augs/situations apply bonuses/penalties to the various methods

>multiple endings

I don't know how much of the story the team wants to put out there, so I'm just posting what we've decided about the mechanics and such for now.



Nice stuff!!!



>protag will have small robot/drone sidekick that will be useful

>android girl love interest

i don't like that, to sci fi-esque and not really new.

>game is divided into 2 types of sections- runs and not runs

like shadowrun chronicles?

I completely accept my positive emotions towards your txt.



This is a problem. On an anonymous imageboard, whose opinions will we listen to? Hopefully the team has been assembled, to avoid this total idea-chaos.


I'm quite hyped for this game.

I remember some other pretty good cyberpunk games such as primordia

Plz make sure it supports all platforms though. Get a git repo going as well.

study and I don't see it as representative when conceptualizing. If you are

interested I can link my deviantart as well.



Semmes great chum, what's your deviantart?


Why don't we make a private board on 8chan? Because retro share doesn't keep the conversations.

We can have several threads that co er differents aspects of the game.


File: 1435753309654.jpg (52.76 KB, 344x430, 4:5, Aaron_Halstead_-_Jack_In.jpg)


Seconding this.

This would be really helpful, add so much clarity.

I was the first composer ITT and I don't have much of an idea of what's going on.



I'd rather send the link via tor. I don't like posting my page on a chan.



I mean tox.



Can you post your Tox then?

The stuff I see here looks impressive.



Here you go.



I though we could make a private board but didn't found where.

Who create it then?



I always had this idea of making a roleplay game about Invader Zim.

I put together this track from nothing but a bunch of weird samples I have and a ton of effects. It sounds /cyber/ as all hell to me, but it's completely bizarre. If there's a surreal point in the game, I suggest that it may work well in that. Otherwise, if no one likes it, I won't be buttmad.

Anyway, Retroshare is kind of dead, which sort of sucks.

Let's try to get a status check of what's going on from everyone who is contributing.

Organisation is unapparent.

This is okay, I suppose.

I never expected it to be quick.

I'll keep making music.


I like this.

If I may offer one criticism, it's that the distorted glitch sound that comes in at around 17 seconds is a little too prevalent/frequent.

It might just be me, but yeah.

So it seems there's going to be 3 acts, and 4 songs for each act. (12 total)

That's what was planned, but there's likely to be more.

Here's my shit anyway.





Not all users are free in the summer ;P

It's not like we have an producer giving us deadlines tomeet.


heres my certificate. (in order of competence) programming, game design, sound




























wtf man, share your files on retroshare.


your key is retroshare 0.5, it's incompatible with 0.6.


retroshare has persistent forums, there is also one for the game.



I have been, but no one's on when I am.

Actually, I can post them in the forums.

Yeah that'll work.



ok cool i found it



I still vote for a board because wih retroshare you can't contribute via mobile


Just make a game in Quake or something since none of you have any vidya game experience. It's simple enough to work with to where everyone can help out even if there's only one or two programmers.



>make a point and click adventure game in quake

u wut m8



what the fuck are you talking about?

do you mean make a "game" in gtkradiant?

your post reads like you're suggesting that programming in the quake engine is easier than using modern engines.

nobody might bother with this idea now, but I still think it's worth giving a shot

Anybody thought of making a hacking simulator set in a cyberpunk future?

The only good hacksim that comes to mind is Uplink, and that game was released in 2001. Think about it, hacksims don't require much art but some simple 2D graphics for your desktop, the console (if there will be one), and some icons, company logos etc.

HackSims have a very minimal art requirement, and ideas can be quickly implemented compared to a point&click or 3D game.

I have a vague idea of the mechanics, world, and general interactions between other hackers and companies, but in the end it's just another idea. HackSims don't require much manpower either (Uplink was made by like 2 or 4 guys) Remember what made Uplink good and what could be improved on it.

Just make sure the OS you would be running is Unix-based, no true hacker is going to use DRM-infected corporate software.



hacksims are cringy.


File: 1436982597721.png (258.55 KB, 1024x768, 4:3, decker and tron.png)



fuck you're noise, Decker is the only hacksim you need.



There hasn't even been that many hacksim games, and you're probably thinking about really dumbed down representations like going into a TRON-world and beating up manifestations of wirefalls and Black ICE.

I'm not sure how one is supposed to cringe when playing Uplink


Decker is schway as heck, I was just hoping for a hacksim that touched more on the social engineering aspects and traps 'n tricks.



This is exactly what the game need.

An integrated hacksim when you jack in.

I like 3D world like in J mnemonic or that old neuromancer game with a grid and Old 3D buildings.


File: 1436984101528.png (2.64 KB, 68x250, 34:125, noneck2.png)

I love the idea of plugging shit behind the ear.

In the book Neuromancer if i remember some have several plugs behind and plug multiple "needles". It must cool to fing a design with color codes etc.

The main character may need paricular needles to do certains task.



Are you kidding me man?


I don't want to intrude on this other gamedev thread but if you want to talk about a cyberpunk hacker sim in development, reach out.



Well unless it's and educational game, or a puzzle game, it's sorta cringy.

I've never played Uplink, so I wouldn't know. I just feel like I'd rather mess around on my computer than play around in a fake terminal where I'm not actually doing, learning, or solving (in terms of puzzles) anything.



Nah,its gotta be a Masada,that way its a sleek recognizable cyberpunk gun. Plus GITS.



Nah, fuck that. FN FAL. The beautiful irony of "the right arm of the free world" being used in any cyberpunk-related setting is too beautiful.


Some stuff I posted on /v/:

//Post 1:

>FEAR's shooting and AI mechanics

>Deus Ex's style of story

>Neotokyo's aesthetics and music

>Work as either a Police enforcer, Samurai ninja or Illuminati trooper in Tokyo in 2202

>Open world, able to travel around Tokyo in either first or third person

>Take various jobs around the area and take part in territory wars which would differ between factions

>The Police siege large block towers from the ground-up all guns blazing

>The Samurai crush the morale of the enemy by killing leaders and using fear tactics, like gas and hanging people off of lamp posts

>The Illuminati engage in information warfare and fight through a computer by hacking into databases, stealing information and holding secrets ransom

>The goal is either to restore complete order, reinstate the Imperial reign over Japan or to unleash the NWO

That is how the perfect cyberpunk game shall one day be made.

//Post 2:

You could join the Police by going to an enlistment center while the Police are in a losing battle against crime and they train you to be a crime purging machine.

The Samurai you could join by changing the way you play, following Bushido with your decisions will let them take notice and they will send you a letter to survey your interest in becoming a ninja.

The Illuminati would follow something that an anon said in another thread, it would be subtle horror- you would use the computer and find something similar to Cicada 3301, if you followed various steps and completed various tasks, you would be given a cryptic set of instructions on how to become "enlightened" and join the Illuminati by way of their hidden HQ.

Those ideas would likely be far too huge for anyone but a large dev to make, but we can dream- right?

Not bad, but there's something weird going with the right arm. I can't get my finger on it, but think it just looks too small in comparison to the other one.

Is there a real artist here, or am I going to create more shitty sprites?

cause if so, the asset development is going to take at least a year or two. (obviously exaggeration, but you get the message)




I too am an expert in turning computers on.



Yes we can.

Do you have decided on a certain style/focus and concrete assets, or are you just making random sprites?

Because the latter is pointless without having decided on the concepts (since concepts can be modified for the sprites) and deciding on a coherent sprite style first.


File: 1437945932343.png (10.55 KB, 320x200, 8:5, Bedroomwireframedraft1part….png)


I have decided, and I'm making sprites as they come up in the game, just to use for coding

unless I'm the only artist, in which case they might be permanent



Shadowrun aynone?

Deus Ex?

Cyberpunk 2077 in a few years by CD Projekt?

Countless others and probably a whole bunch of indie titles I don't think about at the top of my head?

But seriously, if some truly autist in here decided to do a interactive novel, with good artwork, good soundtrack, and most importantly good writing this would be an achievable goal

I mean look at the kind of shit that gets publicized on main gaming sites, freshman year just to cite one.



And we likely do.

Some features I'm putting in my game whether you like it or not:

alignment system-uses global integers to track your fame and infamy with the factions, The triads, the gang (no name yet), the Police, the aristocrats, and whoever else I want to put in.

Until I figure out a way to make projectiles work, it will be a stealth-based game with a lot of environmental stuff.

The graphics still suck ass.



i just lost "the game"


I was involved, but RL got wild, and I can be involved again. I had to reinstall Retroshare, though, and I lost my original keys.

mission accomplished, i expect credits in the game.



at the end there will be a credit for

You got all the character designs and shit set? oh boy. At least i contributed :^)



I would like to jump in to this project. I could make a website for the game.

I can help out, however, I'll need a bit of your guidance in regards to color palettes. Pic related a color palette I worked on ages ago but was unsatisfied with.

If you like it however I'll apply it to the game.

And yes, I really do love the color blue that much.



Color palettes aren't a big concern to me. I've just been creating whatever colors I want each room.

I do like the palette though, and help would be much appreciated

especially seeing as how I signed up as a programmer, not a programmer, artist, producer, alpha tester, and whatever else I've been doing

really though, the art is fucking tedious

What needs redrawing and all that jazz?

well. I have like five(?) backgrounds that should be redrawn, and about fifty other ones that need to be drawn. characters need animating, a walking up, down, left, and right animation. The main character needs a crouching and reaching animation. all others need some idle animation. There's a mugging that need to be animated, I could go on and on.

backgrounds that need to be drawn are: two kitchens, a jail cell, jail courtyard, jail office, some guy's flat, several warehouses, several streets, office buildings, offices, a gang hideout, a triad hq, police department, a whole sshitload of random city scenes, a top down view of a long street, a far away view of the same street, etc.



shady aug clinic, normal aug clinic, high tech aug clinic, shitty streets, normal streets, rich people streets, several businessmen, billions of useless passerby npcs, a bunch of gang members, a bunch of triad members, a bunch of police officers, three different PMC's and their respective guys


Test, test.





Okay I'll start recoloring and redrawing stuff posted by you ITT.

Oh and before I start animating, at what's the lowest FPS I can draw stuff at? I specialize mostly in limited animation, but I can utilize rubberbanding and light swatching to increase frames.

Also do you want any full background animations like gifs related?

I can do pseudo 3d using a few pixel art techniques I learned.



30 is probably the lowest fps

don't really want any full background things, pretty much just the type of backgrounds I've been making, but ones that look good. animating lights or what have you would be fine


File: 1443676216103.png (6.23 KB, 300x200, 3:2, rough sketch.png)

Okay, before I do any animations and what not, I decided to do a quick sketch for the redraw I'm planning of the bedroom OP originally posted.

Again, this is a very quick, and admittedly so, rough sketch. However it showcases 3 things I want to improve upon OP's vision.

1 Depth Perception

Op's original bedroom concept looks too flat and 2d to me. I can see on the triangular arches he drew along the wall he tried to convey depth, so I decided to take it a step further.

2 add utility and character to the room

The room looks like it's nothing more but a place to sleep in. It almost feels like it has no one living it. So I decided to add some furniture to the place and a gun, to show that the character uses the room.

3 I felt that the room is too big

From what I'm getting the vibe of, is that this is a full blown dystopian cyberpunk world. And so I don't think it's fitting for a normal denizen in such a marginalized place of society as I'm imagining to have such a big room. Of course that's what I'm imagining the protag's background will be,not what it is in the OP's mind.

If the op likes the concepts the sketch is conveying I'll clean this sketch up, and if he likes the cleaned up version I'll color it to completion.

For now this is all I'll do for today, and tomorrow I'll upload another sketch for a redraw.



Oh and I know I completely fucked up the perspective on that gun, and the gun itself looks like shit but I didn't want to get too invested in the drawing.



that's good, pretty much exactly what I had in mind


Sorry op, I encountered some computer problems but I fixed them already.


bump because CyberDrawshazboth was killed by Jinteki's mercs


Just saw this thread, haven't been on /cyber/ in a long time, do you guys have need of another programmer/basic pixel artist?

Here's some of my work: http://tmblr.co/ZabOQn1w0uDLL

This thread seems to have died down pretty bad so I hope the project's still going.



I think the more people doing art, the better. I don't really need any help programming, unless you know a way to do bullets in a game engine that has no physics objects or projectiles



Well that stuff was all done in LibGDX so I can probably help with coding too, I don't usually use built-in physics anyway.

>It was one of several cities design to survive, but the only one that did

>Builders and leaders of city are huge Italophiliacs

>pseudo-roman hivecity-like dwelling

>cybernetics ranging from lifelike to outright robot design

>gang warfare endemic to lower levels

>upper class dress more like ancient Romans

>poor dress more like normal cyberpunk

>middle class is a mix of the two

>mutants from the wasteland prowl the shadows of the lower levels of the city have celtic-like design




I can code but I can't art.


Wait until the modding tools come out for Fallout 4, and do a total conversion. That game already has decent RPG features set up and we can use the work of modders that are already working on bugfixes and additional features. Also it looks pretty as fuck and has power armor built in.

Coders can set up a blank overworld for artfags to build in and replace weapons and gear with new models. In fact, it might be possible to build the overworld using the in-game settlement tools.

Don't bother starting from scratch, total conversion is the only realistic way.


>coders get blank world working for artfags

>artfags make assets and build cyberpunk city streets etc



>meteor shower

>mutants from the wasteland prowl

Since when cosmic rocks are mutagens? The rest is neat.



I never said the mutants were caused by the meteor shower.


what happened to this project?

is there a repository or irc channel yet?


fallout 4 would restrict it to one platform

plus its proprietary



Yo might have better luck with OpenMW, since it's open source and all.



As with many projects

It stopped gradually

also, I discovered a better engine in literally every way



what engine?


isn't it a little far off from prime time?



currently, Love2d

but pretty much any engine is better, simply due to how much more you can do with it. AGS is a good engine for specific things and it has a good gui, the only problem is that you don't have enough freedom with the game


What's the easiest contemporary 3D engine to mod?

Gary's Mod? GTA?

Anything we can put a lot of neon and rain-slick streets into.

Remember, it's always three in the morning, it's always raining, and everybody is wearing mirrorshades.


Adventure Creator for Unity looks very promising

it's not free tho


I will work on a full scenario to see how far ideas can go.



there is OpenMW which has good dynamic lighting, can run on slow machines and linux.

but i thought the original idea was to make a really simple 2d adventure?

>Gary's Mod? GTA?

they're proprietary, moron.


Just finished Technobabylon.

That game is really good it made me scratch my head more than once.

It gives good example on how a cyberpunk point&clic can be.

File: 1457040014676.jpg (9.81 KB, 217x180, 217:180, corpj.jpg)

I've got an idea for a little story more like a minigame.

Name is GeneStealer,

In a future ruled by mega corporations, industrial espionage and technology thefts are commonplace. And private polices are employed to recover what has been stolen.

You play a corp (corporate cop) that is sent to bring back a stolen experimental gene.

The game is simple, you are in the shitty part of the town and must reach the last floor of a building to arrest/kill the theft.

Of course the story is a little more complex.

I visualize the graphics being like the game Flashback. With cutscenes for each action, i like the rotoscopic style they used.


Is there a way for a game to use Google Streetview as the 3d world?

That would be hot.



there was a tower defense game that used Google Maps, so I guess it's somewhat possible.

Hello gentlemen. Very new fag here, can't be assed to read the entire thread so have instead skimmed.

I see the intention is to make a classic scrolling-style adventure game. This is okay, but you're really wasting time and resources when you could be handling movement as a tile-based first person crawler. The type that you'd see in classics like Circuit's edge, SMT, snatcher and the like. This still allows for backgrounds, while cutting down the need for time consuming character animations and activities. Characters can show up as a single graphic and do their shit in text boxes. Handle environment/item interactions also in this manner, and you'll also cut down on the confusion and lag time often associated with adventure games (IE: What objects in the scene can be interacted with? What items can interact with these objects? Much more intuitive when it's operated like this). A tile based perspective like this is also very nostalgic and reminiscent of the roaming gameworld passable in cyberpunk. So that's my vote

okay? Okay. You can emulate this through VN engines like Ren'py, or even text adventure engines like INFORM. But this is getting off topic

I don't know what the plot you guys have in mind. I am just going to add what I think would be a neat concept: Take a open/roaming world environment. Have a possibly sociopathic alienated loner type being compelled to kill targets as in dreamweb. Make it in X days or the world will end or something as in Darkseed. Have a hallucinatory technology-alters-reality-and-the-brain mechanic as in videodrome only this time with computers (these hallucinations being like sleep paralysis and invading waking life in not easily discernible ways). Have a wired-invades-real-life thing going on as in lain. And have a bunch of augmented secret police going around for a meritocratic-THX style dystopia as in GITS/Deus Ex

addendum. Wizchan tried writing a VN of cyberpunkish stripe a while ago I was privy to. The concept was a conforming, aging bureaucrat guy in a interventionist on a distant star counting down days until his retirement. It's the welfare state on steroids because machines have gotten rid of everyone's job only the Asian-inspired cosmic empire wants everybody in social harmony. A weird platonic-pseudodaughter relationship with an up and coming female bureaucrat he meets on the trains one day, and how they explore the abandoned and built-over undercity to escape the drudgery of everyday life (the protragonist actually lives in it). Character design is sort of an inverted Rick Deckard/bladerunner guy. He's got the same kind of interventionist-detective job, only he's not the stronger man.

Just some thoughts. I could go on but whatever. Take some or leave all?



and by the way. I'm willing to work as a WRITER, and long as the concept isn't totally shit to me.



Circuit's Edge ! i need to reinstall it now.

There was also Shadowrun on Sega CD like this.

Great idea btw.

The first idea was about a guy that fix coffee machines. He got a contract to fix a software issue with a machine in a megacorp office. he plug himself to it's matrix and find some hackers found a way to bypass the security of the corp by going through the coffe machines network.He bump into the hackers that have stolen some top secret files and just before they are fried by the daemon guards, a hackers upload the files in that repair man. He is disconnected and pass out. The megacorp security don't want this mess to spread so they erase his memory of the day. They don't find the files hidden and encrypted in his brain chip. He wakes up the next day at home completely unaware that he has the most sensitive file in his head.

then shit happens you know like someone try to kill him he is saved by a techno assassin bimbo a la neuromancer etc.



yeah, I noticed that after looking through the postlog. Kind of a rehash of johnny mnemonic, innit?

is the project still running? Can I take some part?

Beneath A Steel Sky, Cyberia, and Blade Runner are good, too.I should mention Ripper.

Seems fun for an interactive world, but how does it handle anything else but exploration and short-animated interactions. For example, combat?
