Born Punk takes place in the Danish island of Bornholm, in the year 2155. So now Bornholm transforms itself from a quaint holiday getaway to a mega-city. Also governed by a corporate council.
Since the island hosts a space elevator. A gigantic construct used to transport goods and people into space. The scenario also takes place in darkish and cyberpunk‘ish state. Including many genre typical themes like AI rights. Also human enhancements and the power of corporations. But ID22 also wants to portray the world with hope.
- Logical Puzzles: in true point and click adventure style. So the player will have to pick up. As well as combine and use items they find in the game world. Insert Disk 22 try to keep all puzzles strictly logical. So that no ‘LET’S TRY ALL THE THINGS RANDOMLY!’ scenario ever arises
- Choices and Consequences: many puzzles in a Born Punk game. You can solve each by different means. So these means a different between violence and peace. Maybe a bluff of honest with an arrogance or kindness.
- Extensive Lore: the player will collect vast amounts of lore. While interacting with the game world. Sometimes, the knowledge you gain can be used for puzzles or dialogues. Issuing a different outcomes. It is a purely voluntary game mechanic.
- Futuristic Technology: the main character Eevi is physiologically altered. So she is able to hack into electronic devices. Uising her artificial titanium claws to attack or defend herself. And her cybernetic eye gives her insight. Things that are also hidden from ‘normal’ humans.
