Big sy Slzy Preview

This game is called "Big sy Slzy" and it's a console-style RPG+Roguelike hybrid. It is set in a fake 1985 New Orlns. An angelic Power has brought you back to life because the city it watches over has become infested with street crime. You gotta grab your baseball bat, chains, bottles and some teeth.

This post might be haphazard, but what the hell, the game is good. Inspired by Net, Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup, River City Ransom, Shenmue, and Persona 4.


You pick a character/profession combo (currently there are 9 characters and 10 starting professions, with plans for even more.)

Character classes are not always your typical fantasy fair...

'80s Guy - Uses guns and slze to fight his way through the city.

Mantis - Giant praying mantis that can not equip most of the awesome gr in the game, but gains insect powers like Acid Spit and Summon Swarm.

Zard 3 - A Pro Wrestler who dls tremendous damage. Suplex and Backbrk your enemies.

Warlock - Wield unholy demon magic.

Doctor - Use nanomachines and drugs to hl your tm. Clone dd tmmates and bring them back to life.

Necromancer - An undd skeleton who can, in turn, summon even more skeletons to fight his battles.



Currently there are almost 200 unique items in the game, and they can be found in briefcases around the town.

Most briefcases have a 50/50 chance of spawning in any given game -- requires risk vs reward calculations and preventing "perfect" runs.

Collect Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figures from Gachopons (capsule machines) in the style of Shenmue!


Roguelike Elements

-Permadth if your party is wiped out
-Randomized dungeons. But not totally random. You will face similar versions of maps, somewhat similar to Diablo 2. Some maps may only have a few versions, others have over 1024 possible configurations.
-Huge city with at lst 100 buildings you can actually enter.
-BRIEFCASES are the Trsure Chests of Big sy Slzy, they can all drop any item in the game, with an equal chance of a dropping a lowly soda or the coveted Plate Armor.


Computers and Chemistry

Chemistry sets can be used to perform advance transmutations (i.e. turn a tooth into a skeleton or an eye into a swarm of frogs that will fight by your side). But you have to know chemistry first...

Terminals can be used by a knowledgable to do everything from ordering pizza to downloading s with permanent stat boosts which can be applied to your tm.



Executive - Start with all the cold, hard cash you need. But nothing else.

Psycho - Start with a huge random selection of gr for a unique game.

Chemist - Start with knowledge of advanced transmutations and a chemistry set in your apartment.

Chef - Start with the Coutu and Apron, solid items that almost anyone can equip. Also begin with more food than you can t and your very own soda machine.

Entomologist - Begin the game with some Mantis and Ant eggs, which you can grow into ddly soldiers.

Also play as a Knight, King, , Gangster...and more!


7 days to live

You only have 7 days to live in the "Big sy." If you sleep in a bed to revive a character, you will lose a day. If all days are gone, you lose. If you cln up the city before then, you win.

Some Chemistry transmutations may require an entire day.

If you spend too much time on a computer you might waste a day playing an addicting game!


You can collect as many heros as you can, but only 4 can fight at once. If your battle party dies, it's game over.

I can't wait to show off more, I'll try to get a of the current build up sometime soon.
