Anyone remember the PC game Syndicate? The little trench coat and mirror shade corporate cyborgs running around causing mayhem? Well, I played far too much of it back in the day.
Wanting to offer more fast-play options at our weekly game sessions, I wrote up a set of rules in hommage; a cyberpunk skirmish game where you and your friends play a team of Agents tasked with various missions of questionable legality and high lethality.
It’s called HARDWIRED. We’ve play tested it. It works. It’s easy to learn. Plays fast once you get the hang of it. And it’s fun.
The free, Beta version has been removed. The latest iteration is available at AMAZON and WARGAME VAULT in both electronic and print-on-demand hard copy format.
UPDATE: Hardwired has been rebranded as EXPLOIT ZERO.
Look for it at Amazon and Wargame Vault. Thank you.
It’s a solid little game. It doesn’t reinvent the microchip, but it’ll give you an excuse to paint up (or buy and then paint up) some cool cyberpunk figs, set up a gritty, urban Sprawl, gather your gaming buddies, and infiltrate the nearest top secret, gene-tech research facility. Which isn’t a bad thing, right?
Good Luck, omae
