A downloadable board game
Factions control the flow of information, and store the most sensitive secrets in siloed, offline servers around the city. You are a street runner; hacking into locations of rival factions for intel. The only way to stay ahead is to keep moving; so hack in and get out.
run/hack is a competitive cyberpunk strategy game for 1-4 players. Defend your servers while collecting bounty for cash to upgrade your gear, so you can hack into rival servers; all without being noticed.
Mechanics include dice collection & manipulation, cards, missions, a randomized hex board, area control, and a distinctive action selection grid.
“The game is solid. You’ve hit the sweet spot with this version.” - Jon Gilmour (@jongilmour)
I’m super excited to see more cyberpunk that is ACTUAL cyberpunk & not white male power fantasy plus neon. - Tony Miller (@beardedrogue)
“I would play the s*** out of this game.” - Michael Fox (@idlemichael), after playtesting
