deepcity1The goal of Deep City 2030 isn’t to be weird (I don’t think), and a significant portion of the game’s IndieGogo video is completely normal. Just some guys talking about making a relevant game that tackles some meaningful things. Then the giant cat shows up and fires his eye lasers at a city full of giant TV images of former dictators. Then, hey, the giant laser cat is replaced by some wind farming turbines. Great, the city is saaa- oh crap here comes Disco Jesus. But hey, at least the giant TV has a smiley face on it now! What exactly do you do in this game, though? Well, hopefully sometime in Fall of ’15, we’ll all get to slap our hands against Deep City 2030 for iOS.

With a quirky steampunk look and a ridiculous sense of humor fit for Hot Topic t-shirts, Deep City 2030 poses a question to mankind – not just players: “What if cities could save the world?” In-game, you’ll be tasked with creating a stable city by whatever means you deem necessary while fighting off opposing factions and freakin’ Disco Jesus in addition to other “cataclysmic world events”. Deep City 2030 strives to be a highly flexible political and economic strategy game, but the team behind it includes several pro-Earth minds to help mix a message with the gameplay. Deep City 2030 hopes to spark thought and innovation in the real world. That’s right, people, Disco Jesus has come to save us all.

deepcity2If you’re into saving the world or just really want to defend a city from a laser-eye-wielding kitty cat, you can ride your flying hamburger over to IndieGogo. The team hopes to raise $50,000 over the next month or so, and with that money the team will start development while also using our support as a message to bigger studios that can fully fund this project. Yeah, this is one of those “fund us so we can get funding” projects, but it may just be worth a look, so if this sounds intriguing, go on over to IndieGogo and check Deep City 2030 out!
