So a while back I started a project in which some of you might remember (Dust) but I ended up abandoning the project since I went into it thinking too much about Fallout. I also decided to work on something more original, at least in terms of choice games, since @JimD has done a great job with the post-apocalyptic genre and to be honest, I fear the comparison I might get to his game, or to Fallout, which was my original inspiration.
Well randomly I remember seeing the movie “Shinjuku Incident” starring Jackie Chan, which takes place during a surge of illegal Chinese immigrants to Japan. These immigrants are mostly confined the Shinjuku District, hence the name. Anyway Jackie and his fellow Chinese immigrants begin to work in the underworld by money laundering and rigging slot machines. They get into disagreements with the local Yakuza and Taiwanese gangs, which is the incident part of the title. I got inspired a little by this movie, which I suggest for you guys to watch, even though the dub is meh.
So those of you still with me, I plan to write a choice game centering around the Yakuza, (or other gangs) with the player being a member of them, or maybe even the police. I could both sides to have both sides of morality, because the Yakuza tend to see themselves as honorable. They were some of the “first responders” an devasting earthquake back in 2011, by distributing food and blankets to those affected. On the other hand, the police can be quite corrupt, when they are meant to uphold justice.
So all in all, I’m asking
Has this been done before, or something similar? (Excluding @Vendetta’s game, since he’s been AWOL like myself for quite some time)
Who’s interested? ;p
I’m open to suggestions since this possible WIP is in its planning stages.
