"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.

    "The Majesty of Colors" Teasers

    "(I Fell in Love With) The Majesty of Colors" is coming out in just a few days. We're nervous and excited and trepidatious and many other things you might find in a thesaurus related to "nervous". We don't release games very often, so this feels big.

    One of the things we've aimed to do with the remastering of "The Majesty of Colors" is not to just give players the game from 2008 in a new technology, but to give folks the game they remember playing, which is probably a little different from the reality of the Flash game.

    We've talked about some of the major improvements we've made to the game, but the smaller enhancements have mostly been left to our social media posts. Here's a compilation of some of the recent gifs we've posted:
