Define who you are!
October 18, 2019
Coming to Kickstarter early 2020!
Waking up with superpowers and no memory, five strangers find themselves in a struggle for survival and a search for answers. Pursued relentlessly, will their hardships bring them closer together or turn them against each other? And will everyone make it to the end?
As Subject 5, you will have to make decisions that affect the entire group. Choosing your every line of dialogue, you will - directly or indirectly down the line - determine their ultimate fates.
Everything you say and do will impact your companions' feelings towards you, each other, and themselves. Any two characters may be rivals in one playthrough and friends in the next, leading to different conflicts and group dynamics every time.
Regardless of Subject 5's gender and orientation, you will have the option to pursue a romance with other characters. Whether sexual or emotional in nature, these relationships will feature prominently in the game.
Think fast and find clever ways to use your powers on the environment to defeat your enemies.
The biggest allure of roleplaying games is interacting with a new world through a character you get to create. Deciding who they are, how they reason, and what stance they take on conflicts in the story is a rewarding creative outlet, as well as an exercise in empathy. Even if you are playing a version of yourself, you are exposed to philosophical dilemmas and thought experiments you would not encounter in real life, especially in fantasy and science-fiction, that sometimes lets you get to know yourself better.
It is therefore fitting that a theme of our first game is self-discovery. As the amnesiac main character of Super/Human Identity, figuring out who you were and who you want to be is a big part of the story. The player will have full control over what their character says in the game, with fully worded dialogue options rather than a choice of tone. There will be room to play your character and have them act, react and develop the way you want.
Part of creating the character you want to play as is usually customizing their gender and appearance as well. In Super/Human Identity there will be two avatars to choose from. However, on top of that you may choose your gender and pronoun separately, allowing for a wider spectrum of player character identities. Additional customization of appearance may also be available if our Kickstarter early next year is successful.
With a wide variety of conflicts, choices and outcomes, you will be able to make the story of Super/Human Identity your own by playing your role the way you want.
Subject 5 has been added to the game info page, check back next week for another character!
