    What if Shodan in SS3 will transfer herself into human body ?
    "Well i tried hacker, but you won. Now i will be meat and bones just like you"

    And game actually will be dating sims like game where you have to live with shodan.

    Christine's https://www.systemshock.org/index.php?board=3.0 fan campaign takes up from Rebecca's pod getting to some remote station and Shodan taking it over. Or something like that, I don't remember details.

    And Shodan being software means that it can easily be in several places at ones.

    So you are saying Dracula wasn't already a tired cliché begging to be put out of his misery by the time Castlevania was released? Hell, he was a cliché by the 1950s!

    We will get Shodan in the game whether we'd like to or not. The Kickstarter-based game development model is largely nostalgia-driven. It is all about mobilising a large, established fanbase to convince themselves and their friends to fork over the cash. After they do their obligatory fanservice, they may think about innovation, and I hope they do. But them's the dues.

    Now seriously, while I've been burned too many times to be excited about this kind of thing, at least I don't feel quite as pessimistic about this as I normally would.

    Sorry guise, the chance of this ending like a clusterfuck is too high, don't want to have my hopes raised again to just disappointment.

    They're already working with her on Underworld, so yes, it's practically certain.

    Why? It's the perfect setup for the perfect sequel:

    An ancient evil is coming from beyond known space, and SHODAN is the only thing that can stop it. She wasn't actually evil, but she picked up the ancient evil's transmissions and it made her act crazy. But by taking over Rebecca, she became immune to the signal and now she can save the galaxy and you can romance her.

    Also Diego was working for said ancient evil, and the plans for SHODAN were found in a temple of an ancient civilization that once tried to fight the ancient evil.

    I think it would be a story that respects the originals, while at the same time expands the game's universe and introduces new themes like destiny and the conflict between good and evil.

    I would bust a nut if Valve or Oculus is throwing cash at it as a native VR title.

    Holy shit can you even think of a more appropriate IP? A team better suited for exploring the medium? I certainly cannot.

    Also,

    I just came.

    That would be amazing if done right.

    It won't be, but it could be.

    If I recall, System Shock was originally written as a trilogy—that is, the plot for System Shock 3 was already written when System Shock 2 released. They got, I believe, a professional writer to write them a novelish sort of narrative that ran from the first to the third.

    However, EA required them to slap in, at the last minute, the Rebecca Simmons ending; it wasn’t part of the script as written, and it doesn’t fit into the prewritten narrative.

    That said, I’m glad Ken Levine isn’t going to go all Bioshock with this, and I’m not so happy that Warren Spector is a consultant; I wish Doug Church were involved.
