Another Short Script has popped up on BeefJack. This time it's for Starbreeze's reboot of the 1993 isometric game Syndicate, which is ludicrously titled exactly the same. It's a cyberpunk game set in the future where corporations are immensely powerful and openly duke it out with each other by deploying agents with enhanced abilities, all in a bid for control. If that sounds anything like Deus Ex: Human Revolution, it's because it totally is.
Whew, been a while, hasn't it? The reason for the lack of updates here is my recent work on BeefJack, which has agreed to host my Short Scripts as a regular feature. Battlefield 3 takes the dubious honour of being the first, so if you want to read it, click on the link above. The script will be added to the archive here in due time. But on BeefJack, it has pictures!
Welcome to Playthroughline, a personal blog focused on the implementation of stories in games. In addition to general musings about narrative design, you’ll also find a collection of Scripts that basically do for videogames what The Editing Room does for movies.
