I’ll start posting concept game art.
Are you gonna make this game?
You just want to dump some Nihei don't you.
Not like I have a problem with that.

I don't really see how builders would work as a playable character
Anything is possible. I forgot to mention that Nihei did not specifically mention that his works are isolate. They might all be in the same universe.
Keep them ideas flowing.
Autist + Minecraft.
it would have to be a late release, or only set on certain servers i guess
Being a builder might give you better abilities to build or better access to resources. Human players don't know if you're computer generated or human (unless you act in a "human way").
so a quest will be search for a human with the net terminal gen?
both autism and minecraft? a bit redundant don't you think?
I would see them fitting better as a more environmental hazard
random giant robots that build intrusive structures all over the place
often times insides whatever hole a player might call home
I don't think other players would have access building mechanics, or only having very limited building options
if I remember correctly, in Blame! the builders just sort of materialize matter out of nothing in order to build
I don't think anyone else had access to that ability
besides I think a game set in the mega-structure would be more centered around nomadic survival
I image the safeguards being a pure pvp faction that non stop hunt the other players
so.. With the Knights of Sodonia show airing soon what are the chances a few anons or a new group translating volume 11?
if you want or from an NPC/human killed or given
anything is possible
Sandbox mmo's are the best too bad no one makes them anymore
Stopped reading, no thank you
basically rust combined with anarchy online?
the show will probably create more buzz so I imagine someone will pick it up
last time I checked some anon's from /m/ were translating it
but I don't really know what's going on with that
>somebody gets radiation emitter
>everybody else dies
beams OP plis nerf
safeguards might spawn around you with graviton emitter shields and swords
best if you pick random spawn after that
I have a sudden desperate urge to watch a movie with a ridiculous budget set in this kind of structure.
I helped organize that and I can confirm that nothing is happening on that front.
That project was all crowd sourced from random anons I don't see if someone else wants to attempt translating volume 11 go for it.
I can see it check first for Biome type & scale (dome, chasm, pillar, submerged, etc...), followed by structures, then on rare occasion populated centers/spawns.
What if someone just makes a Minecraft mod
Special item: Backpack
Whenever I think of Blame! animated, I get a directorial style similar to Samurai Jack.
Long sojourns of solitude, BGM and SDFX emphasized, and sudden, but quick bursts of action and violence.
You have vision
As long as I can have this, and only this as my weapon, I'm in.
You get the weapon, but you're just an human, would you still use it?
Nice. What does it do?
If only to fire once...and be torn apart in the process...yes!
Anon, imagine the Yamato or Macross cannon. Now imagine it was the size of a Walther PPK.
As .long as I can marry Sanakan I'm alright with anything.
Welcome to the Great Hall of Moria
Redeemed Sanakan > Loli Sanakan > Hunter Sanakan
>"You're carrying our baby Cibo"
What the fuck.
Blame! is fuckin' weird, man
also, I don't remember loli Sanakan
When they first meet her, just before finding the human hunters.
Remember Cibo took over Sanakan's body. They essentially fused as she is able to suppress Sanakan's personality. When she had to hack the level 9, she went crazy because she can't control it, and during the mean time she took Seu's genes which actually contained the gene they are looking for. So that orb is like a mix of Sanakan, Cibo, and Seu. Since it has a bit of Sanakan too, it's their babby.
It might lack the explosive force. But dat penetration
But she was using the alternate-future Cibo's body when she hacked into the level 9 safeguard, wasn't she?
How do i get this mount?
I think so but didn't alternate Cibo have a run in with Sanakan too? I forgot, but that orb did have Sanakan's stuff in it.
No anon, it does go boom.
I thought alternate future Cibo got left behind in Toha Heavy Industries somewhere. I don't really remember, so much weird shit happened to Cibo I can't keep it straight.
IIRC Cibo took over Sanakan's body and used it for a while. Much later Sanakan took back her body and Cibo ejected her consciousness and landed near alternate-Cibo. Much much later, A-Cibo tried hacking the level 9 and I think Sanakan tried to kill her there and that's where their bodies fused and Cibo melted due to overload. I don't remember where did Sau's genes got mixed with them.
The genes that the Sillicons stole from them was Seu's gene. They used it to access the net, but remember the net people caught on and slowed time to a crawl to buy time for Cibo and Killy to stop the Sillicons. When Cibo overloaded their fake body they used to access the net, that's where it came from.
Me as Seu with Mensab wandering the megastructure forever while holding her hand
Alternate Cibo got her brain fried while they were jumping back to their original time/world at Toha's reactor, Sanakan-Cibo found her body much much much later just as Sanakan was regaining control, S-Cibo expelled her consciousness near the body and took A-Cibo's body as her own.
So, Cibo had the genes, and they melted together with Cibo's body after she overloaded?
Pretty much yes. The orb fetus is a mix of 3 people's genes.
>alone for months
Just what I wanted.
I was trying to make sense of just where Sanakan got involved with the baby, to me it just looked like she had a gay crush on Cibo and wanted to take responsibility.
>alone for centuries
How much time did they spend in that one elevator with the robot operator? A month?
Multiplayer (7 billion humans can log in same time with room to spare)
Online (you need to have human genes to access Net...)
RPG (rocket propelled grenade)
I haven't read through Blame! in a while
but I thought it was something like 600 years
Nihei sure loves bears.
>Everybody is Kyle running around with a BAAM gun.
I'm pretty sure it's 1000 hours, and that's roughly 1.3 months.
I can't wait to do the "Climb Stairs for 250 Years Dungeon!"
The final boss is one large stair.
Shit I really hope that thing is NPC
