Why no programer...

Why no programmer is creating a Game in our time.
Like an RPG in a city of nowdays. You could also use cities that haven't been overused like NY, although it would be also fine ^^

For example you could use Vienna, Philadelphia, Bucharest, Bejing, Shanghai, Osaka, Rotterdam ore else...

Why everyone is making either a fantasy, medieval or space setting? That's boring! And I would also like to have a game with much better an complex story then just saving the princess or fighting the endboss.

I would pay 50$ for that game!

Ps.: Take a look at 1112, that's the kind of style it should have.

You know... I've already contract them (Agartha who make 1112) and offer the same deal as you said. It look like no feedback for now.

Actually I can help funding of develop a nice modern RPG.

Oh. I think this is in wrong topic. Maybe I should post this in Developer Services and Trade.

Game are meant to play for fun...not pay for fun.

first: Sandbox games lack in quality
second: again, too much science fiction

The reason being, is it's hard from a creative standpoint. Fantasy games (generally older in setting) are like.. "you're a kid growing up" seriously, as a kid there's prolly not much you're gonna be doing other than playing with stick, and oh look! that's like a sword you'll be the swordsman that will save the world. In a contemporary setting, it's much harder to do, nowadays weapons are guns. It's a corporate world, Kids have school there just, to be honest, as a much room for adventure. Two games would be, somewhat FF7, though still futurastic, but the other one that does fit is, The World Ends with You, which is an amazing game and a good example that it can be done.

Also I think the idea of an adventure isn't something that people would like to see in a modern day setting as much because they are living in that modern city. but then you got games like the Sims which emulate real life anyhow (try to) so who knows?
