The Surge Revealed
We've known it was coming, but we didn't know what it was until today – Deck 13 Interactive's new game is called The Surge and will be an action RPG set in a dystopian future where Earth is dying, cities are overpopulated and old people are a burden on society, oh and the environment is shafted too. We just realised we're living in a dystopian society right now. We rather like the blurb in the press release so here it is:
Set in a heavily dystopian future as Earth nears the end of its life, those who remain in the overpopulated cities must work to survive as social programs become saturated by an ageing population and increasing environmental diseases.
As the intelligence of technology incrementally increased over the years, many jobs for the human race had been made redundant, forcing Earth's citizens to head out into the suburbs seeking labor, aided by exoskeletons to improve their efficiency. The world of The Surge offers a very grim vision of the future, where the evolution of our technology, our society and our relation with the environment led to a decadent state of the Human civilization.
Stay tuned for more info as we get it.
