Here’s your chance to let loose your wildest, most over-the-top cyberpunk fantasies. This is the future…where ridiculousness rules.
/screen shows a lush rural landscape with green rolling hills and farm land that cuts to a bombed out cityscape with dirty urchins crawling over and around the wreckage of a building. The camera zooms in to reveal they have various genetic modifications. Some mods are cosmetic such as tiger stripes or animal ears, others more substantial such as claws or canine teeth. As the camera focuses on a cute, but dirty, cat girl shouts are heard and the girl disappears in laser flash. All that is left is a burnt outline of the small girl on the wall. Shots are exchanged as an Urban Attack Vehicle pulls into frame and several uniformed individuals leap out chasing the urchins into the shell of the building.
VOICEOVER (Movie Announcer Voice) over swelling “inspirational” music:
“In a brave new world, where genetic modifications, unchecked technology breakthroughs and marshal law have caused a major breakdown in the global society. A new type of hero is required. Heros that breaks with tradition. Heros who go where no one but gen/mods would go. Heros that know the value of cold, hard credits.”
static /screen goes blank, then flickers to an Indian head test screen, signal tone is heard before loud garage punk plays briefly before the voiceover
VOICEOVER (Movie announcer voice is replaced with a squeaky, sex-indeterminate voice):
“Look. I know you freaks are out there. I have things…people…I need done. And I have credits…untraceable credits. I don’t care if you’ve modded yourself to look like the Easter Bunny. As long as you can get the job done. Follow the coordinates, enter the passcode…I figure if more than one of you shows up, you can work out if you want partners or not.”
static /screen flashes geo coordinates and a passcode three times in blue, then yellow, then red before flickering back to the previous commerical.
“…go straight to your neighborhood recruiter and start your exciting military career today!”
