If Obsidian + Kickstarter = ? in Chris Avellone's Blog A blog by Chris Avellone Posted February 14, 2012 Since Obsidian is so good at deconstructing cliches and twisting old tropes in unique ways, I think it would be interesting if they made a game about time travelers who goes back to WW2 to take over the world, but instead of helping the Nazis like in every other story involving bad guys going back in time to WW2, they help the Americans. They arrive a few years before WW2 and use their technology to help America end the depression, becoming powerful political figures in the process. Eventually their leader defeats FDR in a presidential election. Then they use their technology to defeat the Axis power with ease. Since there's no constitutional amendment to limit presidential terms, their leader continues to get re-elected. They then proceed to take over Europe, defeat the Soviets and the Chinese, all while keeping the American people docile by continuously introducing new technology that makes their lives easier while they continuing to implement their agenda of global conquest. The main plot of the game would be about you going back to various points in history to undo the changes these time travelers have made. History changes based on the choices you make. A choice that may seem good could end up with diastrous consequences while "bad" choices must be made to restore the timeline. For example, these time travelers are using their future tech to help America defeat the Axis powers, so you might have to sabotage that effort so that the war could be prolonged to its original length, which in turn means allowing a lot more people to die.
