    Tags: Jan Beuck; Restricted Area

    Following hot on the heels of their Restricted Area <a href="http://www.rpgdot.com/index.php?hsaction=10053&ID=1056" target=_blank>preview</a>, <a href="http://www.rpgdot.com" target=_blank>RPGDot</a> today posted an <a href="http://www.rpgdot.com/index.php?hsaction=10053&ID=1049" target=_blank>interview</a> with Master Creating's Creative Director - Jan Beuck. Here's a snippet:<blockquote>RPGDot: Could you explain how Cyberware, Bioware and skill software work?
    <br>
    <br>
    Jan Beuck: Cyberware and Bioware simply replace the external equipment. Want to run faster? Don´t buy new boots, buy a new leg. You are stupid? Don´t try to wear a ring - it won´t help much. Buy yourself a better brain! I guess you got the idea... ;)
    <br>
    <br>
    Softskills are a bit more complicated to explain: If you have a cyberbrain with a dataport, you can put skillchips into it. This softskills override your real skills, so if you have a pistol skill of 3 and put a pistol softskill of 5 into your brain, you have it on 5 until you remove the chip or exchange it by a different one. Good Cyberbrains have up to 4 slots.

    Finally! I bid a long awaited goodbye to adventurerers laden with bling-bling and christmas ornaments up the wazoo.

    It makes me think about Deus Ex. I like it.

    I will miss my bling, however..

    It reminds me of Deus Ex also, though with more emphasis on mutants instead of bio-enhancements, for the enemies anyway. The story doesn't seem very similar to Deus Ex, but maybe I missed something. I think of all the FP games I've played Deus Ex has the most interesting and accessible conspiracy plot I've ever encountered. I'll have to check out the site from home I guess and see if my system can run it.
