The year is 1912. Deep in debt, Brooker DeWitt has only one opportunity for a clean slate, rescue Elizabeth, a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood in the flying city of Columbia. Forced to trust one another, they must harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities as they fight to survive the threats of the city and uncover its dark secrets.

 

Before I give away any spoilers to 2K/Irrational Games epic Vigor-em-up, I was thinking. How would other games change if they were set in 1912?

 

This is where you come in!

 

We are looking for you to write a small game bio of any game as if it was set in 1912. Nothing too wordy (400 words max) and the most creative will win a replica Bioshock Skyhook!

It was supposed to be his first day as a bobby on the beat, moving from his home town to the large city was daunting.

His carriage stopped short of the city when he noticed a person lying in the middle of the path. He got down from the carriage and walked cautiously towards the body.

"What 'ave we 'ere"

Little did he know that another carriage was on the road this night, and that it would change his night forever.

When he reached the body, he was disgusted at the sight of the dead figure on the floor. Blowing his whistle, he turned around to see several people walking towards him, all covered in blood.

"What the hell is this?" He shouted, grabbing his truncheon from his waist.

"Stay the bloody 'ell back" waving it in the peoples direction.

The next thing he felt was the dead figure on the floor grab at his leg

"No" he cried, whacking it on the head.
 He walked back, watching as the people covered in blood shuffled their way towards him, cornering him into an ally.

The door next to him flung open. Raising his truncheon to attack, a young woman ran out, raising her arms in defence.

"Get down" He said, as his hand fell onto the creature behind her. "We can't stay here, come with me to the station, it'll be safe"

They both ran into out of the end of the alley, into another street where they climbed onto an empty carriage.

"You're a police man?" the woman questioned.

"Yep, first day on the job. The names Leon Kennedy"
"Mines Clair, Clair Redfield"

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

 

1912

 

You are a quiet boy living in Kokiri orphanage, an orphanage hidden outside of the bustling city of Hyrule. You awake from a terrible dream of a dark skinned man in a pinstripe suit. Although you are considered an outcast within the orphanage, life as you know it changes drastically when the master of the house, Mr. Deku, is poisoned by Ganondorf, leader of the Gerudo Mafia.


Mr. Deku tells you that “the Gerudo King of Thieves” seeks to take over Hyrule with an army of trigger-happy gangsters and with the legendary Triforce, an ancient artifact hidden deep underground that can give anyone never-ending wealth and power.

 

He gives you one of the keys, and with the help of a mechanical bird named Navi and the mayor of Hyrule’s daughter Zelda, you must travel through time using a device made by the seven scientists and find the other two keys that unlock the secret chamber protecting the Triforce, before Ganondorf finds them first and wreaks havoc upon Hyrule.

1000 miles due east of Boston, Massachusetts, and 375 miles southeast of St. John's, Newfoundland lies the Titanic. Offical reports say the ship crashed into an ice berg, but that is only fraction of what really happened. Only a few know the truth of the Titanic, about how everyone was already dead before the ship crashed, and how the sinking of that ship, saved the entire world. Former FBI agent John Redfield boarded the Titanic to return to New York. A stowaway was found in the engine room with a high fever and swollen skin. On the 2nd day of the voyage an increasing amount of passengers fell ill with a fever. On the 3rd day nearly there were 600 cases of a severe illness and 200 deaths. On the 4th day 95% of the passengers were dead. On the 5th day, the dead rose up.John must fight his way to the Hull and send out a SOS, however the infected are not his only problem. Soldiers have taken control of the ship and are keeping it on course to New York. John discovers a plot that King George V planned to send the infection to America to destory the Western Hemisphere and secure Britan's place as the strongest global empire. John must stop the ship reaching New York. At all costs
