Hi everyone, I just wanted to share a project I have been working on since early January. It’s still a work in progress so your comments and criticisms are welcome as long as they aren’t rude.
Around 2012 the World’s oil supply dwindles, the US’ own supply is also cut short to the last thousand barrels. In a desperate attempt to accumulate their oil supplies the US learns of vast quantities in the East (Russia, Asia and the Middle East). They immediately begin a Military operation on the east.
Three years later the US are still fighting conflicts they can’t win, as well as this, their military funds begin to dwindle, they start taking money from public funds. This thrusts the US into a dystopian like era.
Councils are left short of money and most cities suffer due to lack of funding. Crime rates also rise, police and public servants are corrupted by mobs and paramilitaries who want to run the cities to expand their illegal businesses. The whole nation is in chaos.
You are Jason Tempest, a small time crook who’s made enemies all over Trate city. When a dangerous loan shark who you owe a huge debt to makes a threat against your life you decide you not only want to leave the city but the entire country. However, with the country being locked down by the military you face an immense challenge. You will have to battle police and criminals alike to achieve your ultimate goal, freedom. But is a loan shark all Tempest is running away from?
As you can gather from the title and story this is a crime/adventure game. The game isn’t completely centred on gunfights and action. There is a large puzzle element and decision making involved. The player is also required to buy items, e.g. weapons, tools and health. It’s quite hard to explain, I hope to have a demo ready soon.
I will explain more in the future. In the mean time, enjoy the pictures.
