Well, my lungs are starting to work properly again so I guess I’ll show you that media I promised 😉
I wanted to make more of a “splash” with the announcement, somehow, with a website launch or something, but fuck it. I’m a tiny, unknown indie, that’s the wrong strategy.
So here goes. Announcing “System Crash”, a cyberpunk themed CCG. Cyberpunk, yay! Coolness…wait, you didn’t know I switched the theme to cyberpunk months ago, did you? Well, that’s because I got mocked for changing direction so many times that I felt I’d just shut up about it until I had something to show, to show that I wasn’t just gonna change my mind further down the line again. I’m not going to, the decision was made months ago. Besides, 45 of the 76 illustrations I needed are finished and paid for, I can’t afford to change my mind. 😉
I’ll go into the reason for the change of theme in the next blog post. No, it wasn’t just that I am an scatterbrained idiot that can’t make up his mind. I’ve got reasons, though those reasons are the justifications of a scatterbrained idiot who can’t make up his mind is for you to decide, I guess.
For now, pretty pictures. Note, I’m still working on the UI and I’m still getting in final art. Some of what you see is placeholder. Not sure whether I’m going to go with the lurid green colour scheme for the UI or something more like the desaturated turquoise blue in the XCOM UI. I chose green because it felt “old school DOS”, like the Matrix movies. But maybe blue fits better with some of the art I’ve got, and I’m not sure that the green doesn’t overwhelm the art, visually. Anyway. Click for bigger images, as always.
