Description
Eww, whats that? :
Well, it's a choice based open world sidescroller with RPG elements featuring superpowers and unique abilities - That's basically what this game is all about & you are asked to bring in your ideas to help shaping the game.
SP / MP included


So, whats the deal? :
You start off as an average person with a normal job, but due to an accident / coincidence (this will be random for every new savegame) you gain some kind of superpower. From there on you guide the hero through his life making drastic decisions and complete various missions in an impressive open world setting as known from GTA, Watch_Dogs etc., but this time you will experience this from a sidescrolling perspective. Aside of that you can complete random procedualy generated side-missions (Will you rescue the people in a collapsing tower or do you rather accept the robbery-job?).
The player is free of choice in all of his actions, also this directly impacts the course of the story and the world this game is set in.

The finished game will feature random elements to increase replay-ability, a complete storyline & a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ of awesomeness.

I have been watching this since sometime in 2014, and I hope that it is going well. Keep up the good work!

Well, there is no fixed protagonist, you will be somebody else with every new savegame. But there will be an option to choose from already played characters. On top of that you will receive a random superpower

I love that it's a 'random procedualy generated' sidescroller; this seems like something new and exciting. Suggestion, I would like see some cutscenes as part of the guy's overall story, is it something mysterious and family-related??? Or has he lost his memory??? Also like the idea of lots of side quests like you mentioned.

Parece un buen juego, estoy ansioso esperando a que sea lanzado!! (voted)

alrighty, there was a video on the old page but I have to record a new one because the appearence of the game is changing quickly. Also im working on putting up a demo, but at this stage it would only be a tech demo being able to showcase the engine

i dont think it is lame im just saying i might not play it. i dont really know why but i dont think i might play it unless i see it in video but i started looking through the pictures again and i might play it but im not thinking of it as bad or lame im just thinking of not playing it but seems like a neat idea.

Well, there's of course not much gameplay to show due to the fact that im still working on the engine,later on its not only that office but a whole town ( at min.) & it will certainly not handle like a point'n'click, one will find himself inside dynamic fights (maybe) incorporating mouse movement aswell. SO if you just dislike the genre (sideview) in general, then thats one thing, but if you think the game itself might just be lame then i would desire to hear why that is and how i can change that
