I realize this is sacrilege. But this certainly seems to have some potential.

And then it would be like getting another version of the greatest game ever!

Indeed.


IIRC, there was actually a retheme using 1980-something BSG, but they had to deviate from theme since there were no skin jobs in that series. I've very briefly thought about doing Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome as a fully co-op game (since they haven't come out with the human looking cylon models at that point), as I knew some people who prefer fully-co-op and simply do not like traitor games. Young William Adama/Husker FTW!

Possible idea. I'm working on extracting a lot of the core mechanisms from BSG and creating a more streamlined version of it at the moment. Been looking for themes and outside of cyber punk / hacker stuff I think something similar to West World might work.

Thought about it more and I think it would work fairly well. Not sure of any other shows where people don't know their true nature or that their true nature can change at the drop of a dime (or hat in the case of Westworld).

Yeah. And FF already has a deal with the the Game of Thrones TV show. They have over a year until season two. They better get cracking!

Let me know if you have any.
