Big Daddies and their creation
My friend Jon and I have been hypothesizing heavily on the Big Daddies and how they're 'born'.
We've come up with some reasonable suggestions, but more than anything we're interested in the extremely 'personal' aspect of having one of the story 'paths' be to stumble across a laboratory of sorts, perhaps automated, and being modified. Your character would black out, and upon awakening stumble around a bit inside this room, where eventually you'd happen across a closet filled with one or two different models of the iconic and ever-distinct suit that makes up the Big Daddy's appearance.
We further spoke about this after spending a session viewing the screenshots on the Cult's website--and seeing a shot we'd seen before, albeit in a far higher resolution here.
"Look at that Rosie," I said. "Doesn't it look--I dunno, nervous?"
Something about that picture, the way the characters are stanced, has a distinct feel of the Little Sister examining the Big Daddy extremely carefully, perhaps gazing in the visor, to make sure he was "authentic".
Just a thought.
Discuss your thoughts on the idea of becoming a Big Daddy--it's too late to be implemented in the game if it isn't in there already, but it's fun to dream.
