I've tried this one once before, but it came out at a really bad time for everyone involved and never took off. It's been long enough that I'm comfortable giving it another run now. To summarize its setting, it's a blend of Cyberpunk and Noir with a heavy neo-80's flair inspired by things like Drive, Hotline Miami, and the Synthwave music genre. It takes place in a futuristic New York City, part of a world where technology has advanced by leaps and bounds over what we have today, especially in the fields of robotics and prosthetics. Cyborgs are steadily becoming more and more common, to the point where they may begin to outnumber normal humans. There's a constant tension regarding technology, like a weight between the advantages it's brought and the risks it poses to how the world works. Everything is kinda meant to look like an old science fiction movie from the 1980s, what with blockier robots and a general look of retro-futurism, bathed in all the delicious aesthetic of neon lights and grim urban life.

I envision the roleplay to be semi-sandbox. There will be a main plot, and it will affect the world around it, but at the same time I'd like to be more freeform with how things work. Separate groups could be interacting with the storyline and could never meet. Unlikely partnerships could form between people who are caught up in it all. An individual could go around and interact with multiple factions. The plot itself is something of a conspiracy thing mixed with crime drama, influenced by the likes of Deus Ex and Grand Theft Auto. I don't want to reveal too much right now, as that would ruin the mystery, but it'll be an overarching presence even in the somewhat open world being constructed.

Anyone in?

Aight. I'll likely start up the OOC thread by tomorrow. I've got a few folks coming in that haven't posted here yet but we should be set.

Since this is roughly based on GTA... I have a fantastic character for this...

@LadyAsriel I didn't say it's based on GTA, just that it's a similar sort of potential for crime drama. The setting's wholly unconnected to any pre-existing fiction.

@ManMadeofWolves we dem boyz

Cyberpunk is a genre full of degeneracy, so yeah.

That's about good for interest checking! If everyone would head this way now, the OOC is up.
