Gappo’s Legacy is a mutlimedia project covering television, comics and videogames. While the team behind the project say that the TV show is the main focus, there will also be a virtual reality (VR) experience to tie-in to the story.
The universe of Gappo’s Legacy is one of a distant science fiction future. Humanity created conscious, intelligent machines called makinae. The makinae were then discarded and condemned to live a harsh existence in a desert area called Kafke, where they are preyed on and enslaved by technological pirates. The player-character finds themselves on Kafke and upon seeing the plight of the makinae, decides to join with them to fight the pirates.
A demo of the VR experience was shown at the Comics Fair of Barcelona. So far the videogame appears to be a first-person shooter (FPS). The demo was shown on a HTC Vive headset, but it is currently unknown if the final version will support other platforms.
Further details on the project are scarce. There are some preview images of the comic on the official Instagram page, but no news on when the TV show, comic or VR experience are to be expected to launch. The comic tie-in will show a prequel to the main story, while it is believed the TV show and VR experience will be concurrent.
