Corporate Slogans for the late 21st Century

Recommended Posts

So after a bit of playing around, I've decided to make some silly random slogan for each of the Corporations. Sure, they're hardly anything, but I was imaging what kind of Slogan each Corporation would have.

"Scanning the future of innovation."

"Upgrading the human experience, one augment at a time."

"The first, and last, say in personal defense."

"Manufacturing a safer tomorrow, today."

"WE ARE ALL. WE ARE EVERYTHING."

 

I'm also curious, what other sort of products do these Corporations make? What sort of things that are important, the research that they do.

FTM: Basic appliances, like fridges and washing machines

Plastech: Hospital (obviously)

K&O: Security systems for minor businesses and the upper-class

Sankaku: Basically a futuristic Apple

Omni: Warfare/Government stuff? That's basically the only thing I could come up with based on their decor.

Hey, I actually wrote some stuff for this, but it didn't make it into the game (ran out of screen space on the mission preview screen):

 

FTM:

Factory To Market is the world’s largest producer of consumer electronics. Traditionally a downmarket producer trading on volume, they have recently found success with a line of professional-grade personal security and surveillance products.

 

SANKAKU:

Sankaku Heavy Industries started as an industrial automation provider in the early 21st century. In recent decades it has capitalized on the corporate class’ growing dissatisfaction with human labour to expand into everything from education to law enforcement.

 

KO:

An ancient family-held concern, Kelfried and Oden have been producing weapons systems since ‘high technology’ meant a particularly sharpened stick. Finally free from governmental oversight and regulation, they’ve proven as adept at wielding their products as they are at building them.

 

PLASTEC Cybermedical:

Plastec Medical made record profits in the early 21st century selling life-extension technologies to aging baby boomers. When that well dried up, they funneled their vast cash reserves into R&D and cornered the market for cybernetic augmentation.

One quick question Kevin, is it Oden or Odin? Because in-game states it as Odin.

To be honest, I've noticed that K&O's acronym meaning changed a lot. I even remember it once being called Koch & O'hara in the PWR play update poster.

Some good backstory there Kevin! Who is your favourite agent?

 

When can we expect some for Don't Starve? :D

Ah. It's Odin, like the Norse god. We fixed the typos in the game.

 

I'm partial to Nika and Banks, story-wise. Back when the agents came in teams, they were besties.

 

I haven't actually played through the game with everyone to know who I like the best mechanically. I tend to like whichever agent I've used most recently.

So I actually recall the team things as well. And I do remember Interinationale, who was called Red at the time, being paired up with Shalem 11.

 

Man, I can only imagine how those two must have treated each other. One, a socialist revolutionary who doesn't like killing, and the other, a professional assassin who kills for the highest bidder. Those two must have had hilarious elevator conversations.

 

Also, what about Decker and Pedler? Since Pedler got split into Dr. Xu and Sharp, is Decker familiar with either of them because of the team system? I apologize for all these prying questions, but I just like to think of the sort of stories you can infer through merely item loadouts and the kind of stuff you put these characters through.

If I recall, Decker and Pedlar were the bitter old agents that nobody else wanted to work with. Red and Shalem had a fiery Mr and Mrs Smith thing going on. Nika and Banks were the new recruits, and it was implied that they were romantically involved.

Nika and Banks are my favourites too.

Wow. I have to say, this game's process must have been something, trying to write the lore and characters for it, and the possibility of it changing in the future. It must have been quite the iterative process.

I must ask there, because I am really interested in the backstories of Invisible Inc (which i would even more prefer to experience ingame [maybe with the Invisible Inc Post Launch Update? Whoops, sorry, i'm going way of topic there :p])

 

Does that mean that Internationale (former "Red") and Shalem had some kind of affair? (Like stated in previous posts, they don't seem to match perfectly - yet opposites attract, huh?) Or how exactly is the Mr and Mrs Smith comparison meant? I mean I watched that film, but this could mean a lot, you know :D
