So basically, I have started working on an idea for a game where you’re a police officer… in the future!
Since it’s the future, there are robots with advanced AIs and, obviously, people have different views on how robots should be treated if they are now very similar to humans in many respects. So you’re a cop and there’s a big political election coming up, the outcome of which will probably determine lots of the rights of robots…
Also, the police just decided to start a new program to promote better relations between humans and robots since it’d make their jobs a lot easier so now there are robot cops (not like Robocop, though, actual 100% robots) that are your new coworkers!
The game would basically cover the months before the election, where you can get to know the people on your team, and the robots, and deal with all the pre-election protests and riots, possibly involve yourself in said protests and riots if you ally yourself with one of the political parties, and other kinds of cool adventures in that vein.
I haven’t seen anything too similar after quickly searching through the WIP forums, most of the sci-fi games seem to be about spaceships and stuff so I thought I’d try making something a little different - does this kind of basic theme seem interesting to anyone?
On another note I also was wondering what is the process when you’re making the game, like do you normally write up the story fully and then put it into the code, or code with a skeleton outline first and then flesh out the story text after?
(Also, this is my first forum post on here - yay! Hi everyone :D)
