CHARACTERS
  • Toad Coat - A regular kind of mutant.
  • Iris Flux - An innovative but reckless lab assistant.
  • Professor Shima - A scientific genius and expert zero-g netball player.
  • Ed Stone - Mercenary for hire.
  • Count Urpetus de Mordrak - The new boss of the Olympus Power Corporation.
  • Boris - His android helper.

STORYLINE
It is the near future. Humankind has colonised Mars. Unfortunately, it isn't going particularly well. Hulking megacorporations rule the planet, stretching the ever-precious resources to a bare minimum, causing society's very fabric to rip like a pair of old trousers at the seams. Technology has developed to a point where it could serve humanity for the better, but the rapacious nature of some residents has meant that they have been dragged down into a pit of dissolute ill repute, bitterness and questionable fashion choices. The offworld colony at Olympus Mons is a run down hellhole full of shysters, loan sharks, weirdos, lunatics, avaricious corporate businesspeople, and abject freaks. What we're saying is that it's a pretty cool place to visit, but you wouldn't want to live there.

Our interpid, or that might be insipid, hero, Toad Coat, is an amiable, if slightly dopey, kind of dude, mixed up in a messed up world of turbo technology, information-overdosed consumers in a trash talk hyperreality cyberpunk daze. He finds himself thrown into the challenge of locating the parts to a fascinating new machine that may help to remove the pollution from the atmosphere of the decaying city and bring free energy to the masses. As you may imagine, the power companies are not very keen on this idea, and the new boss of the Olympus Power Corporation wants to put a stop to this, by all means necessary. That boss is none other than Count Mordrak.

Mars Rocks is something like when Akira meets Futurama and goes for a drink at a dingy, back street watering hole in the less-than-salubrious part of town, necks too much, stays until after the last bus has gone and can't remember where it has to get to, but doesn't really care. It is a free-wheeling adventure game set in the open world city of Olympus Mons, with a central main plot and various side quests to enhance your gaming pleasure. Rife with amusing dialogue and characters, this game should be a blast with sci-fi afficionados, Philip K Dick fans and anyone with a pulse.

SETTING AND/OR WORLD DEVELOPMENT
  • Olympus Mons, Mars
The sprawling city of Olympus Mons is the largest on Mars and creaks under the weight of human, and other species', detritus.

  • Olympus Mons Space Port
  • The White Raven Bar
  • Toxic Towers
  • The Tech Shack
  • Various Dubious Street Vendors of Unusual and Peculiar Wares

aww man, color hex code #C4C4C4 doesn't work for the tint value in this scene I need something darker, which stinks just because I liked that one it was my favorite plastic explosive three times...#696969 (nice) should work better (WHY IS MY BRAIN LIKE THIS)
Tell it to me straight, doc. If I've been trying to piece together a "shorter" game to learn stuff outside of game jams... am I just running away from my WIP? :v
Well, I've got a party tomorrow, and my friends are coming over. I wanted to work a bit on the Fandom Scouts assets so I can be ready when that update arrives... in other news, Pizza Time Horror is getting a second teaser, and it shows Cabaret Helen's last performance before the location closed.
Also who used to be scared of Chuck E as a kid? I was! Now I love him!
The new cards and what they do:
