hACCESS the Hard CyberSec RPG

hACCESS is…

…ripping data from a corporate server to uncover hidden involvement with ecological scandals…

…hacking your genes with cutting edge technology to give you an edge in combat…

…modifying a damaged limb with a biomechanical version, faster stronger and better in every way compared to the original…

…negotiating your way past a group of thugs who hate modified people…

…proving that the terrorist attack was a false flag designed to start a war between nations…

…surviving in a world hell bent on starting the next war, where corporations pull the strings, and governments are complicit in coverups…

Hard Sci-Fi

…there is no magic, no black boxes that cure cancer and no safety net…

…there are few heroes and bullets kill people…

…technology is very much integrated into everyday life…

Cyber 

…most of the world is digitally connected, computer systems influence the will of people and algorithms can topple nations…

… characters may have integrated components ranging from computers, to biomechanical limbs and other technologies. All of this can interface with the world around them…

Security

…with all of that digital information comes a price. No system is invulnerable, no data is safe. Governments and corporations spend untold billions to keep their data safe while trying to control the data of others. In a world where people are the product, information is the true currency – and those without a file are shadows…

humanity

The ‘h‘ refers to humanity – a defining character concept in a game which strives to challenge what it means to be human in an increasingly depersonalised world. hACCESS is an RPG and although at it’s core is a game, it also seeks to address time honoured sci-fi questions such as:

Is an entirely mechanical body with a human brain a person?

Can a machine have human rights?

Should we developed Generalised AIs ?

Who owns the information in your DNA?

hACCESS seeks to explore these questions while providing a unique, thrilling and fun roleplaying experience.


If any of that sounds interesting you can grab the game in at its most developed from this link.
