According to Wikipedia(this is a great way to start my first post)"Subversive activity is the lending of aid, comfort, and moral support to individuals, groups, or organizations that advocate the overthrow of incumbent governments by force and violence. All willful acts that are intended to be detrimental to the best interests of the government and that do not fall into the categories of treason, sedition, sabotage, or espionage are placed in the category of subversive activity." We've seen city streets and corperate coridors, so it would make sence to me that Subversion is a game where you play an activist of some sort and over throw a city/corperation RTS style. Anythoughts?


Good Job on noticing the Subversion Subversive link. I spend too much time in Linux and kept on thing about Subversion the version control system and I don't think IV is making a game about version control (although IV could make a game out of anything and they have surprised me before.)

A great inspiration for a game, I love that film. Quite surrealistic stuff mixed with social and political critics, paroding even things like making things more complex than necessary (the "phone" that the main character uses in his home).

Did anybody mention it's Gone With the Blastwave? This(mixed with defcon) could kinda work into a gamed first part of that strip. And them, going office building(procudurally generated enemy placementmaybe?) FPS into the rubble. or mmo or whatever.


Maybe the GoogleEarth USA-CANADA "HAARP" hole could give us an example of airbase size?

Maybe it's a game based on adventures like BOFH (Bastard Operator From Hell), Dilbert, The IT Crowd and others...

That vectorial-like style for making a game looking as the "The IT Crowd" series intro:

It's a shame the IT crowd was not actually funny at all in the slightest in any way. :(

And I had such high hopes for it.

They advertised it as from the writers of Father Ted and Black Books. Both of which I love.

But, it just plain sucked.

Well, in both Black Books and Father Ted, Graham Linehan was writing with somebody else, whereas IT Crowd was a solo effort. It doesn't help that the actors were a bit dull.
