You can play it here:
Grant Morrison’s New X-men (A modern school system for superpowered people that is realisticly depicted and the sociopolitical effects of the existence of those people)
Mark Millar’s The Ultimates(The foreign politics and the presence of paramilitary metahumans in a world with moral ambuiguity)
Gainax’s Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (The evolution of the story from the ground up towards its larger-than-life elements)
Paradigm City (It was the first superhero game that really resonated with me in the way it presented its elements)
Its main themes are Superpowers, School Life(given the context of superpowers), Sci-fi, Time Travel, Politics, Philosophy and Metalanguage.
I always thought that, while there are plenty of comics out there that try to depict an enviroment where young people can learn their powers, there are not many that focus on the academic aspect of it. Most books just tend to ignore such things and jump towards the adventures and the fights. I wanted to create something with a bit of a “Hogwarts” vibe to it, in a sense that it focus on learning how to use your abilities, getting good grades and the whole social aspect of the school life.
Some questions I think people might ask:
"Can I romance X?"
There is no actual romance in this episode, just getting to know people. In future iterations I would like to make all of the main students romanceable(and add more female students) depending on certain conditions.
"Will you add more powers?"
Probably not. I like the current dynamic between them: They are all powers I can work around with and there are some nice combos that can come up from them as well.
"Can I have only one power?"
Not right now. Perhaps I’ll add that possibility when I implement a feature where the “Power Points” you haven’t spend during character creation can be turned into something else later in the game.
"Are you giving up on the War for the West?"
No. I’m currently revising it, but regardless it will probably take a long time for it to be properly published(because of reasons above me), so I wanted to have something done in the meantime.
"When is Episode 2 coming out?"
No idea. I have the entire story in my mind, but I guess it depends on how much people want it and how much time I will have.
