Suzaku and Top Hat Studios’ Sense: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story made an attempt to gather funds to finish development through a Kickstarter run. The developers originally only sought $10,000, but thanks to a solid pre-Kickstarter marketing campaign to help spread the word about the hot looking robo-waifus, enough gamers were willing to bid in some cash to help bring Sense: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story to life, as it still has nearly two weeks left on the crowdfunding campaign but it’s already surpassed $32,000.
The game isn’t scheduled to release until next June… and by next June I mean June in 2019. The point-and-click adventure game is mirrored after classics like Clock Tower and Fatal Frame. It’s classified as a sci-fi horror game.
You take on the role of Mei Lin Mak in Neo Hong Kong in the year 2083. She must uncover the root cause behind a string of murders taking place in the Chong Sing apartment complex, which involves 14 angry spirits. Players will have to find ways to soothe the spirits and put them back to rest, while using Mei Lin’s cybernetic abilities to spot out the ghosts as well as steer clear from their murderous intent.
The game is a methodically paced, 2.5D game that has side-scrolling, hand-painted backgrounds and characters.
As mentioned, it’s played very similar to Clock Tower. You’ll need to interact with NPCs, scour the environments for clues, as well as learn more about the lore by interacting with your surroundings.
You won’t be able to kill the monsters haunting Neo Hong Kong, but you will be able to pacify them.
In a way, SJWs should be tripping over themselves with foam falling out of their mouths while soy beans are stuck between their teeth and their problem glasses hang off their unkempt, bearded faces. Why? Because this game stars a female protagonist who isn’t white, involves non-lethal ways of problem solving, and isn’t a first-person or third-person shooter.
However, don’t expect to see this game receiving any high marks or lipservice from the likes of Polygon’s Ben Kuchera. Why? Titties… lots of big, beautiful, Asian robo-waifu titties.
And as we all know, Social Justice Warriors are allergic to the sort of things that make heterosexual, testosterone-fueled men feel alive.
If you, however, enjoy feeling alive, and you want to help the scantily clad Mei Lin solve the mystery of the murders while ogling her futuristic assets, you can do so by further helping Sense: A Cybernetic Ghost Story rack up the dollars and hopefully release in all its glory come June, 2019 next year. Simply visit the official Kickstarter page.
A demo of the game was made available a short while ago, so be sure to check that out first to see if it’s the sort of game you want to see make its way to the marketplace.
