So, I placed The Shadows Inside (side project I previously proposed) on hold for now because I was finding difficulty writing in the sci-fi environment, but was inspired by a separate idea.
City of Syn will be a modern, alternate-universe crime title set in Las Vegas - the City of Sin.
Starting from nothing, you’ll be brought into the world of a scrappy heisting team, one setting off crimes in a relatively disorganized fashion. When leadership skills emerge amongst a variety of unique talents, the scale of your operation grows, and with it - the heat placed upon you, your team, your family, and your reputation.
Housed in the backdrop of a city ran by megacorps, corrupt politicians, and several syndicates; you’ll vy with the competition as each successful target merely expands the crosshairs. You’ll find the thrill of each getaway, the adrenaline of a job well done…
The bullet piercing your heart.
Welcome to the City of Syn, Kiddo.
Anyways, it's early in development but my goal is to introduce a proper heisting crime experience. You'll undertake unique missions, purchase gear, hire and equip your crew, develop romantic relationships, and grow from a scrappy operation to a full-fledged crime syndicate. I plan to introduce dynamic choices, unique variants of event outcomes, and more. It'll be a project that'll be in development for awhile alongside Estheria, but allows me to prevent burnout as I can juggle my time between two passionate projects. I also have quite a knack for developing modern settings.
As always, I love polls.
QUESTION: What do you think about the idea proposed?
- I really like it!
- I think it’s a solid idea.
- I’m not sure I’d play it.
- I wouldn’t be a fan, not my taste.
- I hate it, overall.
Have a fantastic rest of the week!
