Welcome to Edendale
CyberThreat is an upcoming turn based RPG with life simulation elements, set in a modern day city.
You play as a young man or woman going into their final year of study in a new school. Your arrival late into the school year draws the attention of your fellow students, making you the center of attention rather quickly. Your home for the year is "Kierra's Classy Hovel", where you're renting your own room, away from your parents.
Throughout your time in Edendale, you'll meet a huge cast of characters, discover lots of activities and ways to spend your time, and will wind up in situations you never imagined.
The Serial Disappearances
There's been a string of mysterious "disappearances" throughtout the city of Edendale. This phenomenon has been ongoing for months, with no signs of stopping. The one thing each of the cases had in common, was that the victims were badly abused by their peers through cyberbullying.
The number of missing persons is on the rise and the police don't have any leads on these unexplained incidents. But what happens when the target of the cyberbullies is you?
Not long after your arrival, your new friend Charlotte Chastine goes missing. People soon grow suspicious of you due to the timing of your arrival coinciding with Charlotte's disappearance.
After being singled out as the culprit, you begin to receive hurtful messages en masse from your peers. It turns out the school's resident computer genius, Adlai, leaked your name to the public in relation to Charlotte's incident.
During the confrontation with Adlai, a portal forms from his computer screen, pulling you and your friends into it. At the other side lies another world, Cyberspace.
Throughout the game you'll discover the secrets Cyberspace has to offer. Teeming with danger and viruses, it's up to you and your friends to navigate the different domains and save the abducted victims within.
Aside from the main story of CyberThreat, there are multiple side stories you can discover over the course of the game. Most characters you meet over the course of the year each have their own unique stories to tell.
Will you discover the epic awesomeness of "Samurai Teacher"? Or help an aspiring model follow her dreams, against the wishes of her father? Or perhaps even investigate an ongoing murder case across the city? The choice is yours!
Completing certain contact routes will allow you to enter a relationship with the character. And as an added bonus for completing these Contact Routes, you can unlock powerful hacks and equipment for you to use in Cyberspace.
Lead a party of up to 3 characters into battle against the computer viruses, deep in the depths of Cyberspace.
Choose from physical attacks and a wide variety of hacks to take down your opponents. Use bits to cast elemental hacks and exploit the enemy's weaknesses. Level up through experience gained, and invest in better equipment to give yourself the best chance in battle.
Discover many unique, themed dungeons while exploring Cyberspace.
Each dungeon consists of a hub space that acts as your gateway between Cyberspace and reality. You can also use this area to visit a certain money-hungry virus, keen on collecting your Cycoin.
Follow the dungeon corridors and collect keys to unlock the final rooms in each. Keep your guard up at all times, as you never know when you'll encounter an aggressive virus, or Byte Bandit out to steal your hard earned Cycoin!
Choose how you spend your time.
Make your year in CyberThreat your own. You'll have the option to spend your time each day the way you want to. Want to so some shopping? Spend time with friends? Defeat some viruses in Cyberspace? The choice is yours!
CyberThreat's in-game calendar system progresses the game forward and changes the world around you.
