Almost There

After more than 12 years G String is essentially completed and fully playable; now it's just being polished and improved upon until final release. It took so long to finish because it was developed, for the most part, by one person. Hopefully it can be released soon so you can enjoy it. Thank you for your patience.

If you click the "View the quick reference" link you will find the BEAUTY SECRETS PDF file. It's a document that expands on the features, lore and development of G-String. Please be advised that it contains SPOILERS.

About This Game

Slip into the Standard Issue Biosuit as Myo Hyori, a gifted Korean teenage girl who must face the perils of the future. Survive many hazards, explore a seemingly endless metropolis and beyond as the world around you implodes and history marches towards its inevitable conclusion.

This is a cyberpunk inspired first person shooter with light environmental puzzles and a long, detailed singleplayer campaign focused on story and world building. G-String aims for an old school approach where there is minimal hand holding and your biosuit automatically keeps track of your health stats, ammunition count and armor condition.

You need supplies to heal yourself, replenish your ammo/armor but your suit automatically takes care of your lights, sprinting and breathing (open air and underwater). Your on-board neuro-enhancers, air filters and light sources automatically recharge using movement and/or sunlight.

Courtesy of Bortz Bioengineering your biosuit is very resilient but you do have to be careful: prolonged exposure to toxins will lead to fatal failure! You need to watch out for all sorts of environmental hazards, especially later on when the pace picks up considerably.

Your telekinetic/pyrokinetic abilities will be available from the start and throughout most of the game, they should be enough to make progress until there are more means of input available. Worthy to note that initially your night-vision will be disabled as your biosuit was damaged presumably in earlier lab experiments.

FEATURES

  • LEARN about the troubled future of a space faring, shattered mankind.
  • ESCAPE the ruthless, uncompromising powers governing Earth.
  • SURVIVE acid rain, storms, a crumbling infrastructure and the omnipresent smog.
  • EXPLORE many highly detailed maps with multiple routes and hidden secrets.
  • PICK your fights; the more violent you are the more enemies you'll encounter.
  • SOLVE environmental puzzles of varying complexity.
  • REACH for the stars and beyond in your quest for answers.

ADDITIONAL NOTES



As long time fans know G-String took well over a decade to complete because it was a solo project for the most part; all assets and the lore had to be developed from scratch.

My sincere hope is that this does not impact the game's quality, scope and scale negatively. From the slums of Greater Chinatown to Low Orbit Earth and Beyond your adventure will take you through several distinct locations. No important story elements were cut and the game was not divided into episodes- yet another reason why development took long.

The finished product is not perfect nor will it ever be perfect however it has reached a stage when it's hopefully good enough for release considering the time and resources available to me at the moment.

The goal with the initial release is just to put out a game that can be played form start to finish with no issues. There are no achievements and translations available yet. Those will probably be included in later updates if there is interest in the title. Of course if I had missed anything and there are any urgent problems they will be fixed in an early update as quickly as possible.

The game's retro glitch art infused aesthetic draws heavily upon science fiction films released between the late 70s and early to mid 90s. Exceptions to this rule might include 1969's Space Odyssey or The Matrix. The world's design is very low key and as realistic as possible, everything was put together with feasibility and mass production in mind. The HUD and hints are also kept to a minimum.

When work started on this project I was going through difficult times and G-String reflected this by touching on some troubling issues. Over the years even elements of horror and surrealism have found their way into the mix. Everything changes though and this work should not be viewed as mouth piece for anyone's views or beliefs. Everyone is encouraged to make up their own minds about the concepts they are presented with.

The game is 10 to 15 hours long, combat is spaced out and can be harsh. Sometimes fights with humans can be avoided and multiple paths are available. There are a few cut-scenes in G-String but they are brief and depict things that would otherwise be impossible to show from the player's point of view.

The different post-processing FX settings such as "Film Noir", "70mm" or "Sin City" can give the game a radically different feel so try to experiment to see what fits your gameplay style the most.

Thank you for your interest and if you play it I hope you'll like how it all turned out!

POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERTS if you decide to view the "quick reference". The Beauty Secrets PDF included will be updated again before release as small changes, additions are still being made to the game/lore.

Also HUGE thanks to everyone at VALVe/Steam and LunchHouse Software for the help! Without them there is noway I could have make it through the last stages of development! Thank you guys so much!

Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

There is no nudity/obscene imagery or graphic depictions of sexual acts in the game but some players might find the vague sexual undertone offensive.

The violence isn't too over the top also but some might find it upsetting. Worthy to note that many of the fights can be avoided and most of them involve drones/robots instead of humans.
