See, those are different themes than the themes I saw in the game. But that doesn’t mean either of us is wrong.
Being power-hungry will eventually lead to your downfall.
You mean in the case of the main character, or for the antagonists? Do you have some examples? (I’m assuming Prodigal’s the primary one, with Victon being another obvious example.)
You can’t do everything on your own. There are times when you need to rely on others in order to succeed.
Yeah, it’s no use being the most powerful superhero in the world if you don’t have friends. I actually loved that about the last game where everyone you’d previously met shows up.
No one is ever as they seem.
Yes. Everyone’s hiding secrets. Especially Black Magic.
If the people you think you need don’t stand by you, do you need them at all?
That seems to contradict your previous theme.
The suffering of few is okay if it benefits the majority or the means justify the end.
Do they? That’s definitely not a theme I picked up on in the game. Actually, I suppose with Black Magic’s powers, it could be argued.
For me, there were several strong themes.
Prodigal, Black Magic, You, Jury, Lucky, all of you’ve lost mothers at a young age. Everyone’s dealt with it differently. (Well I’m guessing with Jury since I can’t recall his mother ever being mentioned.) The protagonist was fortunate enough to have their grandmother, Lucky had a family too. Black Magic ended up on the streets, and Prodigal had it rough too. I think there’s some interesting comparisons that can be drawn there. The whole game to me is about the importance of family. Your attempt to free your parents, Prodigal’s search for her mother, and discovery of who her father is. Black Magic’s complete lack of family. The lengths Jury goes to for his family. Lucky being motivated because of their family.
There’s also a strong theme of being a minority throughout, and the fear and oppression you face for being different. The whole aspect of being an infini-powered hero, of people discriminating against you, wanting to lock you away in camps, force you to be registered, trying to fix you by removing your powers.
Those are the two themes that struck me most. But there’s lots of others of course.
