RPGCodex has posted an interview with unnamed entities from the Paradise Cracked team about, well, yes, you got it, Paradise Cracked. Here's a little something:
    6. How does character development work in Paradise Cracked? What skills and attributes are there and how do these affect and relate to the gameplay?

    There are several playable characters in the game. But only 6 can be in your team simultaneously. Each playable character has hisher biography and a set of basic parameters ( different for each character). Some parameters are interconnected. That is, by developing one parameter you limit another.

    Each character has the following set of parameters:

    Strength determines the character's number of AP ( action points), hisher health, and the weight the character can carry. In addition, some heavy weapons require great strength to be used.

    Dexterity determines how many AP the character will spend to actions (walk, run, open doors, etc)

    Dexterity and Strength limit each other.

    Accuracy determines the character's accuracy of shooting.

    Reaction the parameter, which influences the character's ability to react to enemies' appearance. If during the opponent's turn your character, who has good reaction, catches sight of an enemy, the character will automatically interrupt the enemy's turn and open fire at the enemy. This parameter is especially important to snipers.

    Intellect enables to use high tech weapons, and is very important to hackers. The higher is the parameter the greater chance the hacker has to unlock a door or to break a cash dispenser. In addition this parameter determines the hacker's ability to break robots. The higher is your hacker's Intellect the greater chance the hacker has to break up a robot.

    Driving determines the character's driving skills. Good driving skills will enable your characters drive any military vehicles, including heavy tanks. But even a mini-bus may be of great help in combat, because you can simply run over your enemy with it, instead of engaging into a fight with himher. Driving and Accuracy limit each other.

    The other parameters (sight, health, resistance to fire, electricity, or shock, etc.) depend on the main parameters. Some of them are increased automatically when you increase your main parameters. Others can be increased by special cyber implants.

    Each character has hisher own personality. Some will go into ecstasies over a stripper in a night club, some will panic when they hear a pistol shot nearby, etc. The number of improvement points, which your character gets when goes up a level, depends on the character's race, gender, and age. Cyborgs get fewer points, mutants get more. Women get more points, than men do. Younger characters get more points than older ones.
