Live on Kickstarter -- 100% funded within 48 hours:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cyberpunkdreams/cyberpunkdreams-cincinnati-stories

This is for an illustrated collection of short stories set in the game's world.

Hi guys,

I've been working on my new world for a little while now. I've had colleagues test it, but no one from the outside world. It never feels like a good time to take this step, which is why it's a good time to take it now! So, would anyone like to have a go? It's an extensive cyberpunk role-playing game. If so, please message me privately and I'll send the link. I'd prefer to publish it here, but I'm planning on getting some publicity for it at a later date and some outlets can be funny about it if you've been linked anywhere before, even a semi-private forum (sad but true).

Edit:

The game keeps growing and growing - more war, more pain and injuries, more cybernetic implants. We now have some completely original and custom art for the game too - meet Ann, Zane, her pimp, and a couple of useful pieces of hardware:





New testers always welcome! Just to note as well - if you let me know you're interested, I'll send a PM, but the forum software doesn't do automatic notifications of new PMs, so please remember to check back! I'll usually reply to you very quickly. Alternatively, you can email me directly at rob@latenightpartnership.com

You can also get a free short story set in the game world here:

http://cyberpunkdreams.com/free-short-story/

Edit: promo video for the short story collection



Edit: it's more of a mature beta than an alpha at this point. Over 1,500 storylets and almost 2,000 qualities.

Edit: more artwork too...

I've had some really useful feedback so far, for which I'm very grateful. People seem to be enjoying it too, which is a relief!

Any more takers?

Thanks to everyone who has given me feedback and filled out my survey so far. It's been really useful and I think things are already feeling more polished. I'm still working on the in-game reward for alpha testers as well, although if you'd prefer something in FL (via the Square of Lofty Words or whatever), just let me know.


  • More feedback is always welcome of course! The more testers the better.

    If you're interested (and I hope you are!), development is proceeding apace. We're not quite at "vast, sprawling" level yet, but it's developing - probably about 200 storylets so far.

    I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has tested it and sent feedback so far; it's been immensely helpful. (Seriously, if you're working on something, you need independent testers from day one in the same way as you need oxygenated blood going to your brain).

    If anyone else would like to jump in, please just let me know!

    In related news, there are a number of social acts in the game now. I have a couple of test characters you can play with:

    Mirabelle
    Leon

    If any other testers want to put there names down here, please go for it! wink

    Sure, why not? I'm playing "Gil Prochzi", the saintly opportunist who'll do anything for money, healthy food and more skill increases. What? The cards just come up. Honest. What am I supposed to do? Not pick someone's pocket? wink

    I've been in this town for quite some time, so don't hesitate to inquire for my time or ressources! "HinterDemGlas" is my exceedingly creative alias.

    I do plan to die a saint, but it's a long road, it's a long and narrow way.

    Just hit a big content threshold by releasing a whole load of new stuff that ties a lot of things together in the main area (well, the main area so far). There are just under 250 storylets now, and although it's far from finished there's enough there now for fairly continuous play.

    If anyone would like to try it out, please just let me know!

    We're building up a gritty little community in the game, but as ever, more testers are welcome!

    I'm releasing batches of content weekly now (on Sunday evenings, for whatever inexplicable reason), with bug fixes and tweaks in between. I'm still calling it pre-alpha, as a lot of game mechanics aren't finished or are non-existent, but it is fully playable and has more storylets than a lot of published games now.

    Wow, really amazing game! Really enjoying it!
    Sometimes there are tiny spelling or punctuation errors that I'd like to submit, what's the preferred way to do that? Also, is there some way to submit suggestions?

    Hey, thanks! You can send any bug reports of typos to me via PM on this forum or via the support link at the top of the game's interface. Suggestions are more than welcome too!

    Great! I've been meaning to send typo reports, but I can't find the support link at the top of the interface. Is it the "contact creator" link?

    Yes, that's the one, although I think you've found it already! Thanks for the reports so far. You should have my email address now too, as I replied, so you can just email instead in future if you like.

    Still looking for more alpha testers. The game grows and grows! We're now up to 350 storylets or so, with the game mechanics becoming more detailed all the time as well.

    - Guns and ammo!
    - Take drugs!
    - Fight!
    - Explore dingy back alleys!
    - Hire prostitutes!
    - Build a home!
    - Trade black market organs!
    - Help people out!
    - Become a vigilante!
    - Or an assassin!
    - Go to prison!
    - Improve your body!
    - And your mind!
    - Grow catfish! (Yes, even catfish)

    You said that you are looking for alpha testers; may I test out your game? Also, would my character be able to reset if I were to run into a bug that prevents gameplay?

    Sure, I'll PM you the link, thanks!

    Yes, although nothing's come up yet that has caused anyone to get completely stuck. There's a lot that's unfinished or missing from the game, but not a lot that's totally broken.

    Still going strong and still looking for a few testers!

    The game has had over 600 hours put into it so far and is growing somewhat large. Think of it as a sprawling, open world RPG set in a universe somewhere between Neuromancer and Fallout.
