I am working on a new game called Silicon Beach Psychopath inspired by Mr. Robot and my personal experiences in Los Angeles.
The gameplay revolves around David P Luna (seen above) as he wanders around a nightmare version of Los Angeles trying to get better at programming so he can get a job. I expect the game to take around 30 minutes to play and 6 months to develop. Playing as David, you have to manage your anxiety which increases every time you use a computer or run into a psychotic trigger. You alleviate your anxiety by talking to your therapist Dr. Goldberg and answering his questions correctly.
I will be revealing more about the other characters and nuances of design in future updates – stay tuned!
Book Recommendation: “Console Wars” by Blake J Harris, for anyone who wants to find out how the old video game industry worked and how it differs from what it is today.
