Terminus Cyberstar is an upcoming indie video-game project currently in development. It can be said that this game fits neatly into the Cyberpunk genre, yet it has a much broader range, featuring qualities found in many video game styles. The game shows a 'low poly' art-style which adds an unusual but unique visual quality which is rapidly growing into arguably, an artistic masterpiece!
I was first drawn to Terminus Cyberstar a few months ago when contacting a team member regarding its quality. And after conversing and sharing content, I was lucky enough to become part of it as a sound designer and composer.
Seeing it grow has allowed me to find out that this game is going to be great! And not just because I am working on it… but because I feel that being a avid gamer and Sci-Fi fan I can tell when content is… slacking.
This team however are putting 100% into this project and I hope that others can get excited for its release. I know that I am!
"Terminus: Cyberstar is a low-poly cyberpunk immersive sim in the vein of late-90's PC games like Deus Ex 1 and System Shock 2. It features multiple solutions to each objective, including combat, stealth, hacking, social engineering, and rewards player creativity, ingenuity, and exploration, rather than directing the player along a predetermined route. A deep, challenging, multi-layered story will play out in an original world of "interstellar colonialism-meets-cyberpunk".
Contrary to the bright Star Trek future of space exploration, fostering peace with strange new worlds, and interstellar prosperity - it seems humanity always brings its imperial baggage along. Planets are brutally carpet-bombed with antimatter, invaded with spacetroops, and plundered for resources abroad; inequality, mass-surveillance, and media manipulation punish the population domestically.
A wide array of skills, equipment, and enhancements including nano-/bio-/mecha-/quantum- and even alien augmentations. Groundbreaking CCTV/drone/internet data surveillance and social ranking as integrated game mechanics - build facial, vocal biometric capture devices and use digital 'facemasks' for thwarting surveillance/drones which cover almost every inch of city. Mod burner phones for use in flux-spectrum darknets so your every email and social media post aren't used to locate, incriminate, and kill/imprison you.
Hacking, including wireless 'net, drone-spoofing, and vehicle manipulation, even skyjack a hellfire-shooting Searcher Destroyer military craft. DIY crafting system: Upgrade your beat-up trenchcoat with solar trim, syphon electricity from the private power grid with hotwired multitools.
Mechanical hacking: Take apart old phones and radios to hack together an EMP gun, reverse engineer a captured police-state robot-cop into your own personal bodyguard. Biohacking: play God with your own DNA to give yourself bone-hammer knuckles, bat-like sonar, or cheetah-like musculoskeletal structure. Just be careful not to turn yourself into Frankenstein or give yourself an artificial cancer!"
