Hey everyone, I’ve been a long time lurker and fan of the COG, as well as something of a hobbyist writer. Today I’ve decided to pick up the pen, or the keyboard, and create a COG of my own.
Do keep in mind however, that I’m being extremely and dare-I-say overly ambitious, and is still just learning choicescript. This is more of an idea pitch than anything (just to get it out of my system), and I wouldn’t hold my breath for a demo. Anyway, here it goes, there will be a tl;dr at the end:
In the year 2092, the gap between the wealthy and the poor is more than just that of financial comfort, but of evolution itself
Developments in cybernetics have enabled people to receive not only artificial limbs, but augmentations that enhance their abilities as well. Stronger, smarter, quicker, less human some might argue, but more evolved. They are, however, very expensive, and only the wealthiest and elites can afford such enhancements
You are the son/daughter of the CEO of a billion dollar cybernetic empire, and the sole survivor of an assassination attempt on your family, and must go on the run. The Board of 500 (it’s not cyberpunk unless there are megacorporations ruling the world) believes it was an attack on them, but investigations have turned up nothing. Like a ghost, these purists simply vanished
There will be blood and gore, romance and intrigue and uncomfortable moral dilemmas and philosophical questions galore. Play as male, or female, augmented or not and destroy all those who stand in the name of progress, or fight against the world in the name of purity.
Tl;dr: It’s bloody cyberpunk. What else do you need to know?
If you read all that, thank you. You are a gorgeous human being. If not, you still look okay, but not as pretty. Anyway, for the next few days, I’ll be reading any cyberpunk novels I can get my hands, other philosophy books on the topic of “The Human Condition” and finally figure out this Choicescript thingy. If you have any questions, ask them below, and I’ll try my best to answer. Good day, folks!
