You are a handy man for some large corporate entity. One day while fixing a broken door in some bigwig's office you overhear shushed whispers from two men arguing. Something about a vial missing. Don't want to ruin the plot or anything so I will get onto the gameplay. The game is about fixing doors before the zombies can get in.

With all the zombie talk all I can think of is how cool a Left 4 Dead random map generator would be.

My guess, too, is that it has something to do with spying, maybe even corporation spying. It may be something like Uplink but to a greater scale, and the ultimate goal of the game might be to bring down the gobernment.

Or not, who knows.

The Matrix-eske strategy game.

You recruit hackers and gunmen, you buy guns, rob banks, hack computers, inflitrate buildings, crash helicopters.

There will likely be some huge mega-corp or seemingly evil government, and you'll play the rebels.

You'll know they're evil, but not to much. You need to gather information, deployment scheduals, cargo lists, and use the information gathered to steal equipment, capture technicians, and so on and so forth.

Basically, you'll play Morpheus. And you'll be subverting the system to attack the evil empire. And you'll be hunted depending on what you do.

Instead of most games, where you play this awesome hero where you're a nearly unstoppable warrior, in this you'll be the hunted rebels, fighting against impossible odds.

That or you play Agent Smith. With a new rebel every weak. Whatever the case, I'm expecting something a bit like the original X-COM

"Subversion" is the secret code name for "Duke Nukem Forever". Remember - you heard it from me first.

Maybe it will be an FPS. No, it is far too wast and simple for this, though it would be über nice to have something like it implemented.
Maybe it is a strategy game. But what would be the point in physics, though it would be über nice to see a RISK type game in this.

My guess is:
The game will be about expanding a faction of people through takeovers of floors, buildings and blocks. Defending what is taken over and expanding as much as possible.
Infiltrating enemy grounds without the enemy knowing, sabotaging systems and the likes. But really, it is difficult to say at this point.

One thing I would like to see is buildings under construction/destruction, so that the city would change during gameplay.

Multiplayer only. One player is in a god-like control (like in Darwinia and Multiwinia) and the others are in first-person mode. The FP guys need to do missions while the god guy tries to stop them with the tools he has (control over a few NPCs, calling police etc.)

That would actually be interesting...although I imagine difficult to balance.
