Howdy, I'm thinking about mucking around with a cyberpunk-themed co-op game with random tiles -- the sort of thing that could involve corporate offices and urban sprawl tiles, randomly generated. I'm thinking about using a 5x5 square grid.

I'm having a little trouble finding a similar game or RPG that would have suitable terrain or backdrops just to muck around with -- is anyone familiar w/ a game that would have some suitable tiles?

I've seen Human Interface: Nakamura Tower and it's pretty close, but it's pretty pricey.

I could do an abstract pencil proxy, but I'd like to have something concrete to push pieces around on. Pixel tilesets would be fine; I'm not having much luck finding those either.

Any input appreciated, thanks!

What Shadowrun stuff comes w/ tiles? That does sound pretty ideal if there is anything, but I've only played a bit of the RPG and never saw anything w/ grids.

Might think about Cyberspace paired with the physical world around a hacker in a cyberpunk world. For example, Resistor_ comes to mind:



Paired with something like Food Chain Magnate-like city tiles. Two players trying to find an optimum path to fortune and glory or murder and secrets.

Asymmetrical tile laying game.

Although they are not square, the hex tiles in Zaibatsu could work.
