I have just ordered this as it pushes every single one of my hot buttons. And I am left wondering why it has had so little coverage... is it an undiscovered gem or a looming disaster? Stay tuned...

It took a small company rather long to ship all the parcels. And now there was Essen. Maybe reviews are and some buzz are still to be expected.

Personally I really like what I've got. Only some rules need clarifications, as the rulebook is the weakest spot.

I get your thoughts! I just had to pull the trigger on this one, even if I don't have anyone that might be interested in playing it with me

I hope the solo missions are fun. Production looks really good on this one and the cyberpunk feel is all there. I hope there will be room for some RPG style character progression and additional equipment later on, maybe even other environments to play (outdoor, cityscape?).

Ah, time to put on the cyberpunk playlist at SoundCloud...

It also pushed all my buttons and I got it. played a couple of missions and I'm generally impressed by the quality of the white metal miniatures and the overall gaming material. I am however not really impressed by the rules. They have a couple of new and very innovative ideas (Actions& Reactions and Cybernetics & Weapons) but also some clunky mechanisms (I'm looking at you Cyberwarfare!)

They have an FAQ on their website. Are the devs good at updating it and responding to rules questions?

not really, lol. the FAQ got made out of (massive) pressure from us the Kickstarter backers group...

This just arrived...



The box cover is surprisingly effective.

First impression upon ripping the shrink-wrap: wow. Seriously, I can't remember the last time I ran my fingers along such thick cardboard and glossy colorful art. Does this last sentence arouse you? It should!

OK, please pleas please let the gameplay be as good. And yes I will review the shit out of it.

The metal miniatures that need cleaning and assembly is going to kill it for a LOT of board gamers.
