Step into the Life of an Underground Cyborg Mechanic

Cyborg Mechanic is a simulation game by Games Operators where you face challenges as surgeon (or mechanic I guess) working on cyborgs, bionic people and augmented humans. You will diagnose, repair and improve your customers’ bodies, as well as develop you workshop and acquire new equipment. You will operate in the underground, gaining fame and money – but also avoiding cyber-raids by the authorities.

Your job is to make your customers happy by solving their problems. It's your way to fame and money. And of course it's all you live for. Your task is not only to diagnose problems, but also to introduce modifications and improvements to bodies, minds and shells. But be careful as any procedure can end in your client suffering pain, disability, death or something even worse.

Your clients works in the underground world too so many of them have interesting stories to tell, but all of them want repairs or improvements. Job orders vary in their level of complexity and the equipment required to complete the task. You don't have to accept every client if you believe you can’t do it.

A russian mechanical arm from a decade ago or some wolverine-like claws of your own design are all good choices when you start considering the implants you can use. The list of implants requiring simple or very complex procedures increases with your skills, fame and resources.

But, in the end, it’s about the money. How else will you achieve your goal of creating the best workshop in the city. What equipment will help you find more customers? Do you need to purchase a cardiopulmonary bypass right now or is it better to invest in a state of the art amputation saw first?

With so many choices, you can’t forget you’re an outlaw - without any license, out of control and not worrying too much about a sterile environment in your workshop. So, the more famous you are, the more illegal implants branded by you appear on the streets, the more vigilant the police will be. When they find you, maybe they'll lock you up right away, maybe you can find a middle ground that works for both sides, who knows.

Cyborg Mechanic is still a ways away from release, but the idea of making someone’s arm an AK does sound interesting.
