    Tags: BioSynth: Rising; Neptune Games

    BioSynth: Rising is an upcoming turn-based RPG set in a cyberpunkish sci-fi setting where robots are sentient beings with the same rights as human. It's the brainchild of an Italian fellow named Mauro who founded a team called Neptune Games last year to create it. Their plan is for the game to feature Divinity: Original Sin-inspired environmental interaction, multiple classes and skill trees, and a complex reputation system. That's an ambitious design and so they've launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund it. Here's the pitch video:


    Neptune are looking to raise €50,000 to make BioSynth a reality. Right now it doesn't look like they're going to make it, but if you'd like to help out, a copy of the game can be secured for €19 right now, with beta access available at €59 and alpha at €189. The estimated release date is April 2023.

    Here is another game to get excited for, jump on a hype train and inevitably watch it crash when it turns out to be unfinished, casualized, bloated, stupid or all four at once.

    The low goal raises quite a few question marks, tbh.
    But I threw some cash at it, anyway - you never know!

    When the charts showcasing all the "rewards" you'll get for backing their game are as long as the description of the game itself, clear red flag. The game looks like dog shit. Why the fuck do developers keep trying to make 3D Isometric RPGs, the game looks like the fetal alcohol syndrome sci fi cousin of DOS. And the UI coloring is horrendous, why the fuck are the colors so bright and gauche? I'll be surprised if the game is even made, much less not a complete piece of shit.

    Didn't Solasta already do this just with a 5e DnD? I haven't played Solasta yet, so I might be wrong here.

    Looks interesting. But not enough to get my dick hard.

    Also, no GOG release planned yet.

    In this age of decadence what could get one's dick hard? As you said, "interesting", it's enough for now.
    Also the GOG idiots won't accept respectable efforts in their platform that are already released, what makes you think that they will put an unknown Italian indie game that is about to release in 2023?
    In other words it's too soon for that.

    In the times of the Kickstarter-rennaisance, when the cherubim of incline teased us with her potential, our collective dicks were made hard. But we were left dissatisfied.
    Now we live through the age of decadence, when harpies sour our lust and our collective dicks are flaccid and pale. One begs to wonder what sights and wonders will restart the cycle and entice the stiffening and growth of our dicks once again...
    ah... I hope that I get to see that sight again in this lifetime... no homo.

    a dick spurned might never rise anew

    for it knows, in the depths of its balls

    the future holds naught but soy

    a sterile soil where nothing can grow

    50K isn't even a single developers salary, I would be very wary of the quality of a 50K backed 'game'. Unless it's a Cleve Blakemore product in which case it will be just awesome beyond words.

    A lot of kickstarters are started by people not in the US and on shoestring budgets. Most kickstarters are pie in the sky kind of deals, and not very planned out. People who have delivered more than one crowdfunded campaign (and with decent reviews) are far and few between.

    Is the guy loaded? He said he's used his own personal funds so far and clearly a lot of money has already been spent on the game.
