VA-11 Hall-A (Vallhalla) a cyberpunk adventure about surviving socialism





v

Check out this new game from independent developers Sukeban and YSBRYD Games. Vallhalla or VA-11 Hall-a as it is called is the latest popular indie game to come out. Like many indie games to come out lately they are geared  more and more toward a libertarian view rather than a socialst one. Any socialism is lite but the games are dedicated more and more to individual liberty. This as evidenced by dystopic releases such as Papers Please about immigration and corrupt communism an alternate world and timeline where the communists win the cold war. Then there is West port independent about selling newspapers in another alternate world in an environment of censorship.

Indie games lately have gotten bolder and better and no wonder that the big software companies and liberals want to regulate and censor them to keep them down. More on that another time Lets talk abiout Vallhalla or VA11 HALL-a if you will...

The game is futuristic and takes place in a downtrodden totalitarian society run by nanotechnology and secret police not to mention croonism. You play as a bartender named Jill who meets fascinating people and learns about their lives. Your actions in this game can have effects on how the storyline develops. Will you be free from government control or will evil triumph?

The game itself is interesting and has a lot of that Willy Gibson Neuromancer environment not to mention aspects of Johnny Mneumonic. Highly recommended.

Can you upload the soundtrack please?

Certainly not. This is a conservative political site not a video game site. I only mentioned this because of certain political aspects of the game and to get ready to write an article about software and political liberty. If I get enough of my loyal viewrs buying this and asking for it maybe I will. Maybe... But only if they're my original loyal viewers (who's emails I have) So don't come here and spam me or my email just to see the OST put up. You can get it on Youtube anyway.

LOL! I would expect that kind of thing from liberals at Dailykos. Most people on this site have lves of their own.

Soundtrack including 2nd round was very good BTW. But anyone who wants to listen should just go on YT or the official site to listen to it.

Played the game. It wasn't as good as I hoped but the music is top! And also the game has little to do with socialism but more with cronny capitalism.

Thanks for posting this Brian. I played the game. It was swell. The soundtrack was even better.

You can get this and other cool games at GOG.com
