The First Person Shooter for XBOX/PC > Reprisal

High Concept (What is it?)
Reprisal is a game that combines all of the elements of the
most popular “first person shooter” (FPS) games into one
package. Players of Reprisal will be able to experience the nail-
biting action of Quake, the stealth gameplay of Thief, and the
adaptive development of Deus Ex. The game is slated for an
XBOX/PC release.

Story Overview
Reprisal is the story of conflict between three species over a
space station (Joshua 20) at the edge of our solar system
Humans have kept their CAT battle machines stationed there
in case of conflict for centuries. The invading alien army,
guided by a Prince who seeks to prove himself, struck the station
first, seeking to turn these weapons against their masters. The
plan goes awry, causing the CATs to turn against both human
and alien, and trapping all three species together in a desperate
struggle for survival.

Gameplay Overview
As the game progresses, the player will take control of beings
from each of the three sides of the battle and learn to use their
unique powers and abilities. These species are:

<sum> Cyborg Assault Tanks (CATs) – Vicious and overwhelmingly
powerful, these killing machines were once used to fight wars for
humans. In Reprisal, they have turned against their masters and
gone into a killing frenzy.

<sum> Humans – Weak and devoid of natural armaments,
humans are the most adaptable of the three races. They are also
able to squeeze into areas of the space station the others can’t access.

<sum> Aliens – Masters of genetic engineering, aliens are capable
of altering their own bodies to suit their needs. While not as
overwhelming in force as the CATs, aliens have the distinct advantage
of being able to retreat from battle only to return more powerful than
before. Playing each race requires a different skill set. For example,
while CATs can charge into battle, wildly firing at everything, Humans
need to sneak around conflicts, searching for a safe place to attack from.

While the game is set entirely on a space station, it has been designed
to contain a large enough variety of environments to satisfy even the
most hard-core gamer. During the course of the game, the player will
venture through enormous mechanical devices, simulations of alien
worlds, zoos filled with genetically engineered monsters, infested
hallways that come alive, and even venture out onto the hull of the
station itself.

Some examples of what will be put into the game are:
<sum> Adaptive characters – The player will encounter foes that will
become increasingly cunning depending on how well the player is doing.
If he/she is constantly having to respawn expect the enemies to be
tailored more to allow the newbie to get through. If you are on
carnage max then expect major battles.
<sum> Destructable weaponry and environments – Certain weapons
will become available that allow the player to knock holes in some
walls and destroy some weaponry (to keep it out of the “wrong hands”).
<sum> Body specific targeting and damage - over forty different spots
on the body where the player can cause damage to the opponents.
<sum> Overlapping story lines – Players will encounter themselves
in previous and future incarnations as they play through the scenario.
Injuring the alien prince in one mission will make it more difficulty
when you are playing that prince in a later mission.

Target Audience
Reprisal is designed to appeal to a large number of players with
several different interests. Beginning players who enjoy mindless
destruction will enjoy the CAT levels. Players who enjoyed the
stealth portions of Deus Ex and Thief will enjoy the Human levels.
Those who like role-playing games and adaptable characters will
enjoy the Alien levels.
