Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
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:
Except he hasn't gotten that spear or hat yet.
He works here:
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.
Everything seems to be going perfectly fine, until some bad stuff starts to happen.
Some really bad stuff.
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.
These are the Secura. We've seen most of them, but the short guy and the blue gimp dude have yet to show up.
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.
The Admini appear to be some sort of super-hero class program, with some elemental control abilities. None of them have shown up yet.
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.
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.
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.
