A.N.: This story will not be as good as the concept might lead you to think. Not self-confident, I know, but hey, I don't care.
Cybertech is an online virtual reality game using the UnrealEngine and DreamWarp.
The DreamWarp is just a pair of snowboard goggle-like metal eyewear that extends to the back of your head while on the sides have wire outlets to the computer it is hooked into. The DreamWarp uses the part covering your eyes to connect to your nerves through your eyes to intercepting them and manipulates them to send signals of what you are seeing, touching, smelling, hearing to the brain to make it seem like it really is virtual reality.
The UnrealEngine is definitely a misnomer. It makes the game exactly the opposite of what it is named. Aside from the ability of your avatar jumping fifteen feet in the air, flying, etc. the things that go on in the world are very real. The NPCs are like real people with real reaction, you can feel the wind, the water looks smooth on a normal weather day, the weather changes like real life and the world is generally affected by the players.
Cybertech takes place in a cyberpunk themed world were technology is key. You will not get fair without the knowledge of it. However, the game only stays in one area and that is the massive city of Len Cydic. Roughly 1.5x bigger than Los Angeles, California, this city is not to be taken lightly. It is a safe haven for corporate commanders and criminals alike.
You are unable to find the difference between NPCs and PCs unless directly confronted about it.
There are no health bars or stamina bars. Your physical fitness depends entirely on you. The damage system is that of real life. Get stabbed, the wound stays there and becomes a burden until a doctor is seen. This gives players a more strategic and tactical feel to the game.
There are four districts in Len Cydic which include:
The Loop: the backyard of the rich and the playground for the bullies. Rundown yet fancy, you wouldn't ever want to be there alone for you don't know if you'll be mugged, or scammed.
Diamond: pretty self explanatory, an area only were the richy and bitchy fit in. With marble houses and indoor pools, this isn't the place a hood rat like you would be.
Simplicity: An average district full of average people... on the outside. It may look like a normal town like area, but there's always rape, robbery, and gambling going on in the basement. Perfect for the criminal in plain sight.
Corporate: Where are the big malls and corporation faction locations are. You can find the states megacorporation faction located their along with the jewelry stores and technology implants. Under the smooth, beautiful lush skin, there is a layer of complete chaos and ugly as the most crimes are born here, right under the civilians' nose. Aside from the huge gang factions and overall criminal activity of all you can think of, the biggest criminals are always the best for they know how to hide in plain sight: the megacorporations.

DotCom: a satellite communications giant and organizers of the Deep Web.
