Interface Zero 2.0: Full Metal Cyberpunk Out Now

Gun Metal Games. Seit gestern steht das über Kickstarter finanzierte Savage Worlds-Rollenspiel Interface Zero 2.0: Full Metal Cyberpunk zum Download via driveThruRPG zur Verfügung. Der aktuelle Preis für die elektronische Ausgabe beträgt $20. Auf 323 vollfarbigen und immer wieder sehr schicken Seiten bekommt der Nachwuchsdystopier eine volle, wilde Ladung Cyberpunk.

Diese Zukunftsvison setzt nicht auf Elfen, Trolle und Zwerge mit Cyberware und Magie.
Stattdessen gibt es neben dem üblichen Klimbim unter anderem Simulacra (Replicanten) und PSI-Kräfte.

Interface Zero 2.0: Full Metal Cyberpunk (Gun Metal Games)



In a not-so-distant future, the world has been ravaged by global warming, subjected to the horrors of nuclear war and natural disaster, witnessed the collapse of the mightiest nation in the history of the world, and the rise of other nations to take its place. In East Asia, the Bear and the Dragon battle for control of the resource-rich continent, and an emergent A.I. known only as Charon has destabilized the whole of Europe, sparking revolution and chaos not seen since the Second World War.


On the North American continent, the prospect of conflict once again rears its ugly head as terrorist bombings in Atlantica, bring the nation to the brink of war with the North American Coalition. Is this the work of Charon, as well, or are other forces moving behind the scenes? Only time will tell.


Science has hacked the genome, unlocking the secrets of DNA to facilitate the creation of new breeds of human; genetic hybrids, human 2.0, and even simulacrum— a slave race grown in amniotic vats and sold on the open market. Cybernetic technology has reached the point where those with the money and the will to do so, can become living machines. Computer science has grown by leaps and bounds as well.


Dubbed Interface Zero by those who created it, the Tendril Access Processor—or TAP—downloads the Global DataNet and Hyper Reality directly into the minds of billions of users across the solar system, bringing the world an unparalleled level of interconnectivity, and danger. Malware plagues the Deep, and hackers manipulate the Tendril Access Processor to upload malicious virii, steal secrets, and even the identities of the unwary.


This is the world in 2090, omae; let’s hope you survive it.

Interface Zero 2.0: Full Metal Cyberpunk product description (7. Jan. 2014)

Gestern kam der Link für die Unterstützer des Kickstarters. Einmal kurz durchgeblättert. Sah auf den allerersten Blick sehr gut aus. Interface Zero 2.0: Full Metal Cyberpunk könnte sich zu einer brauchbaren Fast, Furios and Fun-Alternative von Shadowrun entwickeln, dessen aktuelle Inkarnation, also Shadowrun 5, wohl kaum als leicht und fluffig bezeichnet werden kann.

Ich warte ja immer noch auf eine Aktualisierung des Orignals Cyberpunk 2013/2020/203X/2077/(whatever) von Mike Pondsmith. Das war, ist und bleibt für mich wohl der Stoff aus dem die wahren Edgerunner sind. Doch bis dahin kommt mir Interface Zero 2.0: Full Metal Cyberpunk sehr gelegen.
