Possible Game Idea for Movie Mashup Competition

I don’t want to go into great detail, as that would be in violation of the 24 Hour nature of the competition, but I wanted to toss a possible game idea out there. Basically, Blade Runner as the main ingredient, with the team approach of Ghostbusters and demonic possession like Evil Dead. It isn’t on the list of movies, but Minority Report‘s pre-crime also influenced this idea.

A grim and gritty cop/investigator team on the hunt for those possessed by demons. The possessed are like sleeper agents, well integrated into society, but able to wield immense power in the blink of an eye. Like Deckard in Blade Runner, the goal is to take out the possessed before they become a problem, or at least be able to minimize the damage if they snap.

That’s it for now. I would like to be able to use it for the competition, unless I come up with something better.

I dunno why, but my last two game concepts (this and Shard Wardens) would almost work as World of Darkness sourcebooks. That isn’t bad, just odd – I’ve only ever played a single session of Werewolf: the Apocalypse, and none of the other White Wolf games. Maybe I should look into them…
