This is a thread about this show:
Title.png

The pilot just aired on some strange, backwater Canadian channel, and it seems pretty okay? It's certainly no worse than My Little Pony, and we've had, like, a bajillion threads for that thing.

It stars this guy:
CMPN.png
Except he hasn't gotten that spear or hat yet.

He works here:
S101-1.png
Which is basically a police station inside the Systemcity. They do cop things, but all computery.

Apparently, he's some sort of rookie, so a lot of the pilot is him being shown the ropes by his commanding officer, Captain VRG 1.
S101-2.png

Everything seems to be going perfectly fine, until some bad stuff starts to happen.
S101-3.png

Some really bad stuff.
S101-4.png



Also, it has a pretty awesome soundtrack by our own Eidolon Orpheus, so that's pretty neat.

They've also released a bunch of character shots, for whatever weird Canadian magazines follow these things. There are at least two factions that haven't even been touched on, and just a whole bunch of people that weren't shown in the pilot.

You've got:
Secura.png
These are the Secura. We've seen most of them, but the short guy and the blue gimp dude have yet to show up.



Repaius.png
The Rapiaus. These guys seem to be the medics and repairmen of the Systemcity. The lady, L://YA has already shown up during the fallout scenes in the pilot.



Admini.png
The Admini appear to be some sort of super-hero class program, with some elemental control abilities. None of them have shown up yet.



Errant.png
These guys, the Errant, appear to be the other villain faction on the show. Glitched programs that have gained super-powers while losing the majority of their sanity. The guy in the middle seems to be the leader, but everything suggests that they're far less of a coherent group than the Virites.



virites.png
The Virites seem to be the main enemy of the series, serving as the mindless, blindly aggressive horde.
Most of these guys have shown up. Unlike the other groups, it seems like multiples exist of most of the Virite characters - namely the hexagonal guy, the centipede, and the wolf/dog thing. The one on the left has yet to show up, but certainly looks more like an actual character than an archetype.



Corrus.png
The Corrus appeared in the background of a couple of scenes, lingering ominously before disappearing. It seems like they're some sort of neutral faction. Some have been suggesting that they're all some sort of ghost program, or corrupted data.

Unfortunately, the pilot got really, really poor ratings, so, who knows, it may never be picked up.

    I've been avoiding it. Not sure I want see any of these characters banging yet.

    Still, if people wanted to post their fan art here, man, whatever. Do it up.

    The pilot was pretty good but the setting seems like it needs explored more

    seemed like all the focus was on the main characters and their 'individuality'

    they totally need to figure out a different voice gimmick for the Errant

    that autotuned thing they did in the pilot might get annoying fast

    especially with the weird leader...thing

    DE?AD, I always enjoy the art you post.

    But this setting you've created really clicks so well with your style.

    Like with the RADlands group shot, I thought, "This is an interesting interpretation of what these characters would look like."

    With Digixal, though, I can't imagine the characters being drawn any other way.

    That's because you are not as into Canadian digital television as you should be. :x
    DE?AD posted a bunch of vector art doodles of people's avatars in the Doodle Thread, and created a setting for them.

    He was going to do more, but the thread got locked before he finished, so we got this instead.

    And it is awesome.
