Subversion
« on: January 28, 2011, 02:05:00 pm »
EDIT: Subversion got canned. Maybe we'll be able to come back to this someday.

Subversion is an upcoming game from Introversion Software, the folks who brought us Uplink, Darwinia, and Defcon. It's been in development for a few years already, at least since 2006.

Have a read through their Subversion blog. They update pretty rarely but it's still really interesting stuff. There are some small videos in there as well.



Anyway, Subversion seems to be a game about heists. So the city will generate and you'll go around with a crew with particular skills and equipment to knock places off. Businesses, banks, and all that.
The game seems to be about starting small, small robberies and stuff; later on, when you've got the skills and gear you need, you can perform much more difficult stuff. You'll have to avoid all kinds of security, from personnel to laser trips.





There's a gameplay video from August last year I only happened upon recently. It should give you some idea of what the game is about by showing off a rough example robbery.

It is still very much in development, so we have no idea what the overall goal of the game is at this point, if you can beat it, if there's going to be a storyline threaded throughout, and all that.
Sounds like it will be nice and open to modders too. You'll have to read the blog entries.


It's been quite awhile, several months already, since the last update from the developer. The game could look very different the next time we see it.
Now you can join in on the waiting game too. Lots of fun. :)

This looks great. I can't wait to see it further developed.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Wait, there wasn't a thread for this already?  That's stupid of us :P

Also, they made it a screensaver? I didn't know that! Do you have a link to that?
Or are you maybe confusing it with Shamus Young's Pixel City screensaver? Since I can't find anything on a Subversion screensaver.

Yeah, my first thought was Shamus Young's thing too.

This looks pretty neat though :D
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Huh, I could have sworn they were related.
Oh well. It's all still pretty cool.

Had no idea! This looks cool.

I don't know Introversion software made those other games but they look pretty neat.
