It’s basically BnHA meets Deus Ex, superhero society in a cyberpunk setting.
More about the world
During the second part of the 20th century up to the beginning of the 21st century, leaps in science allow people to augment themselves in order to gain surhuman abilities. A drug-induced genetical mutation leads to the development of a superpower in an individual, while cybernetic and mechanical enhancements can allow human to get camera in their eyes, super-strength, speed, etc via prosthesis. It’s all very sci-fi in your face (there are haptic holograms for exemple).
Along with Augmented people can the apparition of real-life heroes and villains. Their clashes in the streets, leading to lots of collateral damages lead to tensions between Augs and Reg(ular person)s and eventually, the World had enough. Since they couldn’t exactly get rid of heroes altogether because the villains wouldn’t disappear, they pretty much made a job out of being a hero, with regulations and conditions before running into the streets.
In 2026, when the story begins, heroes are fully integrated in the society but tensions between Augmented persons and Regular persons have been steadily growing all these years and are ready to explode at a moment’s notice.
You play a person (their gender is yours to choose) who has to deal with the aftermath of an anti-Aug terrorist attack during which they were gravely injured and had to be augmented to survive.
You can become a hero, a vigilante or get back to your old job (it includes as much action as the first two). You might be able to become a villain.
You can get involved in Aug/Reg politics (you won’t be able to be an anti-Aug advocate though because it really goes pretty much against everything in the MC’s background).
There are 5 ROs. Amongst these, two are gender-locked (one is gay, the other is lesbian). One is straight (so either their gender is opposite to yours, or their gender matches your RO gender preference if you’re playing a non-binary MC). The two other RO’s gender match your character’s sexual orientation. So basically, you always have the choice between 3 RO per playthrough no matter your gender/sexual orientation.
You can choose not to romance anyone, you won’t miss anything. I mean, it’s not like the romance will be an afterthought but I don’t want anyone to miss content because they chose not to romance anyone. So, basically, you’ve got friendship/romance paths.
