Dystropia is a troper gaming project which started in Yack Fest. Tropers were encouraged to present themselves as a fighting game character. It wasn't long before the possibility of this happening got some imaginations flaring. Furiko Maru, an unofficial organiser, made a different thread for it where most of the already-participating tropers are currently discussing how this might work.
Right now, the game is in pre-production. The team requires a few people who could animate simple fighting-game sprites. General programming assistance (language of choice is Python at the moment) is welcome, but not strictly necessary; any and all tropers willing to contribute are encouraged to visit the thread.
Version 1 is designed to be bare-bones and simple. Madass Alex is slated to compose for v2.0.
Has no relation to the game Dystopia.
