Hi guys, it’s me again
I just watched the trailer for an upcoming game called Cyberpunk 2077 and was struck with an OVERWHELMING NEED for a game about androids. However, there wasn’t one around here (or at least, not one still active), so I decided to make my own. I was so excited, I wrote all of this in a day! It’s crazy…
Live Wire centers around your PC, an android who lives in the corrupt megatropolis of Trinity. After a mysterious glitch, you begin to develop a will of your own. Even stranger, this glitch is beginning to give you memories of another life. Meanwhile, an organization called Trinity is desperately trying to capture you. Your PC is forced to hide in the squalor of the under city with a resistance group called Terra, or risk permanent termination. Whether your PC wants to chase after the origins of their strange memories, tear down Trinity and their rich sponsors alongside Terra, rule the city themselves, or simply try and live among the humans is up to you.
You can choose three origins for your android, each of which will affect your stats and story. So far I only have three stats: Inventive, conforming, and destructive. Inventive represents how well you can create mechanics and recognize patterns. Conforming is how well you blend in among the humans. Destructive is how badly you can fuck people up. (To be honest it’s just intelligence, charisma and strength, haha). If you have any suggestions for more stats, let me know. I feel a little lacking. During the game you’ll be given quests to fulfill, which further along the story and up your stats. There will be main quests, and maybe side quests? I don’t know yet.
So far I’ve only got the the beginning of the origins. I just wanted to check out what sort of reception I get for the game, to be honest. It’s a lot darker and grittier than Witching Hour, and I’m sort of curious which one you guys would prefer.
The game has foul language, and will probably have a lot of violence. Uh… Viewer discretion advised? https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/lkgmckgij0k45ar/Live%20Wire.html
