A downloadable game

Funded on Kickstarter! We'll add more previews as progress continues, so watch this space.

Hard Wired Island is a cyberpunk tabletop RPG with a retrofuture aesthetic, inspired by 90s media like Ghost in the Shell, Policenauts, Bubblegum Crisis, and Cowboy Bebop.

It's set on Grand Cross, a space station in crisis. Corporations are corrupting it into an authoritarian monument to greed. Long-time residents are being pushed out of their neighbourhoods as the wealthy expand their territory. In the shadows cast by the corporations lurk criminal gangs, hate groups, and rogue robots.

Whether you're engaging in street activism, getting dragged into corporate schemes, or fighting the corporations and their minions directly, your goal is to steer the station towards a better future before it's too late.

THIS IS A PREVIEW. It contains an overview of the Grand Cross setting, the basic mechanics, and an example scenario. These are the ideas crowdfunding will develop into a full game book.
