About Copper Dreams
Copper Dreams for PC is a cyberpunk RPG featuring a turn-based combat system. The project was developed by Whalenought – the creators of Isle of Bxnes and Serpent in the Staglands.
The story in Copper Dreams for PC is set in a near future, on the island of Calitana. People labeled as unworthy of the resources are sent here. Separated from the rest of the world and without any support, the island soon turns into hell on Earth. The place is ruled by criminal organizations in control of meager food and resources. The player is put in the shoes of a newcomer to the island, whose primary task is to survive. Apart from that, the player has to take care about other characters who decide to follow the protagonist.
Copper Dreams for PC is a typical role-playing game, thus the gameplay consists of exploration, talking to NPCs, completing quests and developing the character. Combat is a larger part of the game. Fight sequences are turn-based, so the player can always take their time before acting. Each action takes a certain amount of time, and player’s orders are executed in real time. Combining attacks with different actions in a proper way is crucial for success of the player’s team.
In contrast to the two RPGs developed formerly by Whalenought, Copper Dreams offers fully three-dimensional graphics, though the game is played from an isometric view – the maps contain many large-height objects, and using height differences is a key part of the game. Simultaneously, the player is allowed to rotate the camera.
A dynamic lighting system is an important aspect of the game, for it complements the elements of stealth. As a result, the player can turn off the electricity to infiltrate a building more easily, for example. It is also possible to hack into computer systems or to reprogram guardian robots.
It’s a cyberpunk game, thus the character is developed mainly using cybernetic implants. Nonetheless, the game still offers the traditional, statistics-based character development. In the game, the player makes use of a wide variety of futuristic gadgets as well.
