"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.

    Rosette LARP: the Editorial Process

    We just finished working through the initial large set of edits on Rosette LARP, and wow, it was an intense process—it took about 18 person-hours to work through. Our copyeditor ("B") was delightfully methodical and caught some interesting things.

  • The Pen Dilemma

    Sometimes in game development (and in development at large) you spend a lot of time on a task that's less important because you think it should be simple. We ran into one of those issues lately involving an input method for our nearly-finished remastering of "(I Fell in Love ...

  • To MBA, or Not To MBA?

    One of the things that's struck us over the last few years of being in indie game dev is how very few teams seem to be using rigorous methods for running their business. (Or, if they are, they aren't talking much about it.) We've attended some great talks at conferences by Finji and watched videos like Simon Roth's "Killing the 'Lucky Indie' myth: How to build a sustainable microstudio", but beyond that the most consistent opinion we've seen is "Make strategies based on data."

    Problem is: where is that data?
