City of Thamesis

2008-01-24 08:39:38 by VerynSayth

I found an awsome digi-comic made in London a while ago now and it struck me as very original and well made (as they no doubt intended it to be). No voices, its all basically hand-drawn pictures (I think) that have sort of been arranged to look animated, and it's very different. Only recently did it occur to me to post about it in hope of giving them some much needed publicity.
The story is as follows {summary}

The mythical kingdom of Albion is in turmoil, but nowhere more so than the capital, Thamesis. The undercity, known as the dirty city is home to much gang warfare and crime but nothing is worse than a lucrative underground market for psychic stimulants which vary in effect (ranging from increased speed, strength agility etc) to telekenetic powers. Called 'patches' they are applied just like nicotine patches designed to stop smoking, and similar to today's underground drug trade, most patches are illegally made by small groups of racketeers and smugglers. Unlike todays drugs however, patches are not only addictive and damaging to the mind, but also encourage use of the patch-enhanced powers for illegal purposes. Naturally, this the use of pirate patches also encourages outbreaks of crime not only in Thamesis but all over Albion.

There are two major powers in Thamesis, Britomart, a new and powerful corporation promising an enhanced lifestyle and supervising the only legal patch distribution (called 'brands' to them) amongst their citizens. And the other is the loyalists, the (now minority) older generation still loyal to the monarchy, which is rapidly becoming old fashioned. Britomart was tasked by the former Queen to rebuild the kingdom after a devastating war and was given special powers of state to do so. In the process, Britomart has all but taken over most of the running of the kingdom and is increasing the divide between the monarchists and people under their jurisdiction by restricting the majority of their services to those who willingly become Brito- citizens, in order (in my opinion) to facilitate a takeover of the kingdom. There's a lot more I could say, but most of it would count as spoilers (such as the King's advisor being a traitor, patch-addict and Britomart informer). Anyways, I've said enough. Go watch the episodes, The first volume of 6 episodes is out and here on newgrounds or check out
