Summary:

In the futuristic city of Luna City, Jia is a detective sent to investigate a murder in the downtown. The city hasn't been faring well as it has in the past, so while the upper sectors haven't been seriously affected, the lower sectors have noticeably ruined buildings and have fallen greatly from what it was in the past.

 

Contents of the game:

  • Battles are on hoverbike. You move forward while avoiding the obstacles and fire at the enemy to weaken them before getting to the finish line. 
  • You have stats that determine what you can fix, how much info a character wants to give you or what doors you can open.
  • Sideview perspective
  • Side missions to earn money/rewards

Man the layout of this thread is just too fantastically eye-candy. Simple yet effective. I love how you didn't use any formatting and alignments and still the thread looks gorgeous. Great job.

Jokes aside, dang, I should really spare some time and give this a go. Gameplay seems interesting, and the custom graphics look pretty. Pretty incredible how you could do all that in a short one-month time frame.

This thread looks amazing. High detail font, asterisks in place of each bullet point - breathtaking.


That said, I need to play this game.

I'd take this layout every time over all the people with size 100 fonts and 10 empty rows between each line of text.

That said, the game looks good, I especially like the city background, which looks very nice.

Thanks! Yeah I'm kinda used to project threads from a while ago. I should actually prettyfy my project threads up but it's kinda weird to me as I'm not really used to that. Or maybe i'm just too happy to get my game out there? I DUNNO. But yeah I hope it's liked and feel free to send me any feedback if you'd like!

This was fun! Even if I am completely horrible at the hoverbike battles (I failed to capture so many people; luckily I finally had a handle on things by the time I got to the final one haha)


I liked the style and atmosphere that was going on. It would be neat to see it expanded to a longer game. o: Also, Jia's design is really great~<3


Edit: I meant to ask, do the people ever fight back in the hoverbike fights? And was there ever a way to restore your LF and EN? I feel like I missed something there. Felt like I was at 4LF through the whole game.

Oh glad you liked! Haha yeah I would have liked to put a better tutorial so it can ease people in a little more. But yes the atmosphere and setting was what drew me into making the game!

It'd be nice to expand it, I thought of that too. Maybe in the future...

as for the questions...

A) Nope. All damage to the player is done by hitting the obstacles. I had planned for enemies to fire back at the player and stuff but that never happened. Time constaints!

B) LF is restored by Repair Wrench items (and the amount you heal is based on your repair skill). You can also use a cure spell in battle but your energy needs to be 5. Energy is regenerated in battle, and that's it.

Oh gee, I remember reading that about Repair Wrenches at the very beginning, but somehow forgot about it down the road when it mattered more. Thanks!! Makes me want to load my game and put Jia's LF up to full and resave just because...


Boy, do I understand time constraints! :S It stinks when you don't have time to implement some of the things you want to implement, but I guess that's part of the challenge in the long run. If you decide to expand it, you certainly have a fan in me, but I'll also understand if you have other things you'd rather be doing haha


Ohh, I forgot to mention the first time that that city backdrop is absolutely gorgeous. The colours are really great *^* the orange and blue---yes. So good.

Just finished this, people should really give it a DL/Play

Super well presented, amazing music choices throughout, atmosphere and vibe is totally convincingly sold.

Little rough around the edges (mainly due to time constraints I guess) and the dialogue and pacing could do with some polishing up, but other than that I enjoyed this short, rich gam very very much. I just wish it was longer and that Ocean had the chance to spend more time to spend on it.

Awesome little cybperunk-noir police mystery. Reminiscent of Policenauts/Blade Runner in tone and stuff. Yeah I loved this, despite all the boggles. Mucho Recommendo.

If you want to try, feel free. I'm kinda curious how it'll turn out!

And thanks guys, glad you all enjoyed it :D . I will try to make a longer game next time so I can take my time with it and have more time to play! ....also brushing up on writing skills...

Why the hell this game doesn't have all the attention it deserves? Seriously...are you people blind or what?

This is short, but freakin' awesome, with lovely noir atmosphere and amazing graphics, also the hoverbike battles were a lot of fun to me. 

I agree with moon, it kinda reminds me about Blade Runner (one of my favourite movies), there aren't enough RM games with a cool cyberpunk theme, it's certainly worth a look!

What a shame people, play the hell out of this thing!
