Project 2137

Postby Kalah » Aug 1 2013, 20:26

New World Computing veteran Tim Lang, one of the masterminds behind the original Might and Magic RPG series, has a new game in development. Right now it's being called Project 2137.

It will be an RPG heavily influenced by sci-fi, featuring human-robot conflicts that take place over 100 years in the future. You will play as a human-robot hybrid exploring a diverse world populated by both futuristic metropolises and desolate wastelands.

Ari wrote:Welcome to a vision of the future where the technological singularity has occurred and man walks through a twisted world. In this dystopian civilization, there is a spectrum of organisms ranging from pure humans to pure robots, and everything in between. Society is concentrated in large enclaves scattered across the continents with desolate, deserted land in between known by all as the Wastes. Due to poverty and corruption, enclaves are constantly at war with each other over the planet's scarce resources. Humans are weary of anything walking around with metal parts and their mistrust may cause some neuroticism. Technology has rendered the robot-human hybrids incredibly powerful and dangerous. One must keep an eye watching their back at all times, else suffer the consequences.

Now, if you're like me, you really enjoyed the elements of sci-fi intertwined with the Might and Magic series. There's nothing quite like it and probably never will be again. Story and gameplay trends in video games are changing and the graphics of the 1990s have come and gone. But, there's still the wide open future of entertaining games to come - games that you'll look back on twenty years from now and reminisce upon. Imagine the gameplay and ambiance of a Might and Magic RPG title wrapped into a dark, futuristic Earth. It could work, right? Believe me, I know Tim and he has true passion and dedication when it comes to designing games. Amazing games at that. We can assure you all, this is going to be an epic and inspiring new adventure and we'd love your feedback and support.

Looks good, hope it is turn based like MM. Hope 2137 isn't the release date. :D

Hey everyone, thanks for the comments!

It's great to see your optimism, and trust me Tim Lang is a phenomenal game designer. He has a way with levels like you wouldn't believe - well maybe you would if you think back to M&M. I know he designed Corlagon's Estate in MM6 and Castle Gryphonheart in MM7, among many others.

In addition to the announcement of Project 2137 (which is a placeholder), Brrapp Games has also launched a new website.

Check it out and enjoy!

New Concept Art - The Vac

In Project 2137 the primary means of transportation from enclave to enclave is a high speed vacuu-powered train known as the VacTrain, or more commonly as "The Vac". The purpose of such a machine is to exceed in travel speed and reduce travel costs, making the Vac a highly efficient and economic construct. It's been around for quite some time, so it's not the latest and greatest of technologies, but it does its job and is heavily relied upon. Think of it as the subway of the skies.

Looks similar to the hyperloop. Hyperloop

Absolutely Jeff! It's the same idea as the Hyperloop and a unique construct in the game that you'll get to experience.
