[Interest Check] - Devil Survivor: NYC
« on: July 25, 2015, 07:11:43 PM »

One born of human flesh...
Man is now a race of some power...
You, son of man...
Must now face the power you hold.
And you must face your destiny as well...
Though your days may be peaceful...
The fated time draws near.

I am your judgement.

I sundered the tongue of your fathers...
and shattered their arrogant power.

So long as the Lord does not live in you...
all living beings hold darkness in their hearts.

If you truly wish to be yourself,
Then rise and fight the darkness within...
The demon inside.
If you have the will to challenge
Your destiny of battle, son of man,
Then state your name...

Synopsis: An entry into the demon-collecting series of RPG's, Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor, is set in modern-day Tokyo and follows a 17-year-old student and his friends, who see an outbreak of demons with some of them becoming their allies. The Protagonist also finds he has the ability to see a person's remaining lifespan and decides to work to avoid as many deaths as possible. Devil Survivor is a tactical role-playing video game where the player and computer control a number of squads composed of one leader and two supporting characters. Between combat, the player can explore several districts in Tokyo to either advance the plot by speaking to specific characters, discover new information, or take part in "free battles". The narrative can branch in multiple ways that result in different endings, which depend upon the player's decisions during critical moments throughout the story.

Our version of the story takes place in the more familiar setting of New York City, but posits the same scenario; the city is on lockdown and certain people have the ability to ally with, summon, and fuse demons through devices known as COMPs (though in our version they're not game systems and, instead, small tablet computers - think iPad mini). Without electricity, without communication to the outside world, without fresh food supplies coming in, how will our characters handle themselves? Will they use their tools to protect, or will they use them to take what they want? Will they endeavor to simply find a way past the military blockade and flee the city, or will they instead struggle to stop the calamity headed their way? They have six days.
