Hello everyone! Now, before anyone goes and gets their pitchforks, I’m still working on Of Beasts and Humans. However, my mood is like the summer breeze and sometimes I might take a break from OBaH because I’m not feeling up to comedy and anime monster girl antics and I feel I should be productive if I’m not up for fantasy for a week or two. So that brings me up to this idea I’ve had for a while (initially for an RPG maker game), but never really brought into fruition (because I’m bad at video game making).
The theme this time is something a bit outsides my comfortzone. But I love it anyway. What this game would be about are robots. To be more specific, a cyberpunk dystopian post-apocalyptic sort of robot story. “But Ledel! Isn’t that every YA novel nowadays?!” Well, yes actually but meh specifics specifics.
The story itself is not some creepy government in white coats making two teenagers creepily make out. This one places in a post-apocalyptic region where robots gained a specific level of sentience/free-will and decided they didn’t need humans as masters anymore. They then proceeded to take over the humans and make them the slave labor instead. Meanwhile robots have created a sort of caste system (not unlike the humans before. Ironically, the most human-like robots are those that are the top and most corrupt. The blockiest are the lowest classes). It’s unknown what triggered the sentience but humans are salty and outcroppings of rebellion are around. It’s both colorful and not all browns and greys, but the outcome is bleak and the story itself is probably pretty dark, focusing on more realistic interpretations of such a society. Of course, as par for my course, there isn’t going to be a big “society” feature, just a small group of rag-tag-misfits because I’m a bias person who loves my misfits.
I’m curious how many people would actually be interested in this. I know cyberpunk isn’t as popular as fantasy nowadays but hey. Wynaut why not? I know it seems crazy for me to do this, but multitasking is a skill of mine so woop woop~.
