Hello. Like a lot of individuals who have discovered Choice of Games and have decided to work on a project of my own. I’m probably not alone in feeling like I have far too many ideas I want to commit to, but in the end you have to settle on one and run with it. So after some consideration I settled on the idea behind Mech Mechanic (working title).
Mech Mechanic is set in a sci-fi world that has adapted military mechanized powered exoskeletons to commercial entertainment use. Once highly effective tools of war, they are now used exclusively to fight mock battles in grand tournaments around the world. Having become the worlds most entertaining sport, specialized universities were built to train and educate the next generation of operators and mechanics.
You play the role of a young protagonist that attends one such university who has always dreamed of becoming an operator, but your aptitude scores have denied it and forced you instead into the role of a mechanic. No less important then the operator themselves, even if it lacked the same prestige, it was a mechanics job to fine-tuning and tailor craft a power suit to their operators specifications.
Because of the highly competitive nature for becoming a suit operator, it was the operator that chose their mechanic. This made the competition between mechanics no less as ruthless as it was between operators. To be chosen by an elite operator was the dream of every mechanic as it was common for a mechanic to follow an operator throughout their career. It all but guaranteed access to the world stage and sharing in the fame and prestige of being the best.
However before all that can happen both the operators and mechanics must learn to fulfill their roles through education at the mechanized university. It will be up to you to make the choices that matter and help or hinder the protagonist in their quest to become partnered with an elite. Build relationships, make enemies, establish a reputation, and claw your way to the top or be be buried at the bottom.
I am just starting this project though and probably won’t have a demo right away, but feed back on the idea so far would be greatly appreciated. I can see a lot of potential with this setting and story, the ideas are just stampeding through my head! Hopefully I can wrangle them all up and put them on the page soon.
