The sunset has started over Twilight City, causing the residents to lock their doors and quiver in fear. Except for you. After getting robbed, your apartment broken into, and finally mugged, the cracked and broken line finally gets drawn. Coincidentally, it gets drawn around about the same time as you come into possession of some sort of super-power.
Thus begins your attempt to clean up Twilight City in the browser-based Twilight Heroes. It's a free RPG from Quirkz Media that recently announced its open beta. Taking place in the corrupt and rather seedy Twilight City, you get the opportunity to take back its night by tossing around hoodlums in the act, earning money (read: "Chips"), and seeing how long you can keep at it before fatigue causes you to run out of turns, five minutes of game time making one turn.
While Twilight Heroes does have a system and some mechanics based off of the previously reviewed Kingdom of Loathing, the game is very new and hasn't had sufficient time to fix every bug, take off in its own path, and so forth. It does have a slightly irreverent sense of humour and a similar "power" rating of equipment, though it's all of a more contemporary setting. Playing both games will give you more of a sense of familiarity with the whole HTML setup, but isn't necessary to understand either on its own.
So far, the only problem is that it's new and is in the process of getting fleshed out. It has a promising look to it, and a noir comic-booky feel interspersed with some silly humor.
