Here is a list of characters that will appear in the game: (click their name to see an image of the character where available).
1. Blaster – The fearless adrenaline junkie who works on some collaborative missions with your playable character, Darwin, on site.
2. Darwin – The hero guinea pig of the story. Darwin has been trained under a classified FBI initiative to make use of animals for stealth missions. He is special ops trained. As standard, he is equipped with an electro whip for melee combat and a plasma gun for long range targeting. He also has a jetpack to aid navigation and IR goggles that allow him to see in the dark using heat signatures. In addition to his standard equipment, Darwin comes across a whole array of special hi-tech weapons and gadgets during his mission to stop Sabersense. Darwin can also communicate with humans through a special translation device which is assumed on as standard throughout the game to enable the player to understand him.
3. Dr. Elaine Stone – A character created just for the game, Dr. Elaine Stone is a research scientist (head of chip manufacturing) who is intelligent, dominant, in her 40s and the assumed partner of Dr. Elliot Stone. She is unaware of the presence of the G-Force and never directly or physically interacts with them. However she communicates to Darwin during certain missions to help provide useful information, never realizing that she is communicating with a Guinea Pig. In addition to appearing in cut-scenes, Dr. Elaine Stone is used to build plot during mission objectives and also appears in some in-game sequences.
4. Hurley – Hurley is an overweight long-haired Guinea Pig. Food is his passion (layer cake is his favorite) although all he wants is to be a pet. Hurley is smart, sharp-witted & actually more world knowledgeable than the other G-Force members. Though he often speaks before he thinks.
5. Juarez – Juarez is a highly professional and organized Guinea Pig who is highly intelligent. She is also a sharp-tongued Latina who doesn’t suffer fools lightly. In the game Juarez is responsible for remote assistance, mapping, objectives and communications.
6. Mooch – Mooch is a housefly member of the G-Force team who acts as Darwin’s sidekick. In a funny twist, Mooch doesn’t actually know that he is a housefly. He actually thinks he is an apache gun ship. Being a housefly, Mooch is easily distracted by blue lights and sweet substances. Thankfully Mooch has some skills that will come in handy including hi-tech surveillance technology that can be used to beam back images to Darwin from places that are inaccessible to the Guinea Pig. In addition, being a housefly allows for Mooch to see in slow motion, allowing him to navigate easily around fast moving objects. He can also interact with electrical appliances – scanning equipment for intel and also activating switches. He can also carry small objects if need be. Mooch is a playable character in G-Force: The Video Game.
7. Saber – An incredibly wealthy former arms dealer (a human) on the FBI’s watch list.
8. Security Guard 1 – These human enemy guards (unique to the game) are unaware of the presence of the G-Force. Thus they will fire upon Darwin when they spot him, assuming he is a pest.
9. Speckles – Speckles is a bad sighted Mole who is also a member of the G-Force. He is the technical genius of the squad and provides technical and communication guidance to the player.
10. Swat Guys – Unique to the game, these human “Swat Guys” are also unaware of the presence of the G-Force, never having direct physical contact or interacting with them. They are called in to combat the enemy appliances, taking over the Saber Mansion (as unwitting allies of the G-Force).
