A few games I've been playing lately gave me a spark for an idea for a new video game concept.

The game is called (Retrospect) and actually includes retrospecting in the story this time - even the concept itself being a retrospect to a bunch of my old and lost concepts and ideas revamped into this game. Like for instance, the heroine here is a tribute to the old design and concepts that Dinx was before I changed her.

You play as a nameless cyborg girl who wakes up in a laboratory, to find that she actually used to be human, but was resurrected by a scientist -- 300(+/-) years ago! Unfortunately stricken with amnesia, and apparently disliked by the local residents, you have no choice but to trek the foreign land and defeat the evil - and find someone who might have an idea about what's going on.

She doesn't have a name period, but both her cyborg name and past name need deep story-based backup before I can come up with them.

But for now, you can call her "C".

I would love to play as Cee in a game. She's cute, spunky, and original. I REALLY like the idea and the art. Good job! a+

Oh my god, this is a great concept for a game! I can see it in my head right now! It would be like a 16-bit side-scroller/RPG, right?

And the character is so cool, and the fact she can add on additional weopons and accessories would make for some great customization game mechanics!

Dude, I would so love to see this made! :D

Thanks! :D

Not so sure about 16-bit. As it would be pretty darn cool, I lack pixel animation skills and programs to make it happen. As for the gameplay, it'd be more Megaman/Metroid/Cave Story in terms of gameplay.
