Neopolis – Concept Art Released for New Cyberpunk RTS

Yesterday, Omni Systems released some really funky concept art for Neopolis, an upcoming Cyberpunk RTS scheduled for release on Playstation 4 and PC in 2017.

The concept art looks colourful, gaudy, and exciting, with cited inspirations from old hip-hop crews, Ghost in the ShellAkiraBlade Runner, and the gangs from The Warriors. This aesthetic will aid in the telling of a story in which gangs and crews wage battle in a globally-televised game of e-combat.

Omni Systems claim “a non-traditional approach to strategy gameplay,” taking elements like tech tree exploration, base-building, unit construction and resource gathering, stating that they will pre-integrate the features into the neon city in which the game is set.

Rudolf Kremers, the director of Omni Systems, has had quite a prolific background, working on Hitchhiker’s Guide to the GalaxyDeadlight, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, as well as receiving a BAFTA nomination for Eufloria, his first release as an independent developer.

Prior to seeing this unveiled concept art, I hadn’t actually heard of Neopolis, but I’m definitely keeping a close eye on the game now, as I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything else with such a distinct and funky aesthetic.
