"Headless Swarm" Lands December 1, 2016!

November 21, 2016

Future Proof Games's cyberthriller Exploit: Zero Day is getting its first season of story, "Headless Swarm". Exploit: Zero Day runs in any modern browser, including on iPhone and Android. The "Headless Swarm" season costs $4.99, and will be available December 1, 2016. The first two hacking jobs are available immediately, and the remaining seven will be released over the upcoming months.

We're still in closed alpha, but purchasing "Headless Swarm" will get you immediate access to the rest of Exploit: Zero Day with no need to wait for a key via our mailing list.

Exploit: Zero Day is a cyberthriller with living story where you roleplay as a hacktivist by making and solving puzzles. Players are hackers participating in shared plots that challenge the authority and power of Samsara Digital, a company set on making money regardless of who gets hurt in the process.

In the "Headless Swarm" season, the mysterious Kilroy-sama approaches you to investigate the suspicious takeover of a consumer drone and you discover the history of the sinister OnyxHorde and their connection to an old friend. But why is Samsara Digital interested in these events? Who is their slick PR representative and what does she want? Can you save the Zero Day inner circle and stop a violent attack on innocents?

We're available for questions or interviews via email at info@futureproofgames.com.

    IndieGameStand (and Desura)

    In a slow tale spanning the last four months, the IndieGameStand site (one of the places we sold Ossuary) closed parts down for maintenance, then went down completely for maintenance, and then its domain name stopped working entirely. Somewhere in there, its SSL certificate expired as well. The twitter account is silent and all of the preview images for their articles are broken, giving it the look of a column of blank gravestones.

  • Odysseus's Birthday Party - A Rosette LARP Story

    We find live-action roleplaying (or LARP) the most fun when the rules work to support interesting characters and dramatic interactions. We designed Rosette Dramatic LARP to allow for this with simple rules that adapt to any sort of storyline or character action. This results in play experiences that showcase the players' creativity and flexible cooperation without disproportionately focusing on combat or any other aspect of storytelling.

    To show how this works in practice, here's a summary of a recent plot done via the Rosette LARP rules. Everything in this story was guided by the game's conflict system to keep things flowing dramatically.

  • TeX for Typesetting

    We've written that after the copyediting process of Rosette Dramatic LARP, we'd start typesetting using a document processing system called ConTeXt.

    What is typesetting and why are we using something other than Google Docs or Microsoft Word to do it?
