On the darkest corners of a futuristic cyberpunk space, Hackers and Megacorporations are battling for dominance.
Shall you choose to fight on the blue corner, as an evil Megacorp you will be building and upgrading a digital fortress of firewalls to protect your precious servers and score your top secret agendas.
Little twists build up a constant tension. Will the hacker manage to make a successful run through the server or he will get tricked into spending all his resources, smashing firewall after firewall only to discover a worthless project? Will the company manage to mislead the runner and score her agendas in time or she will be forced to watch the runner browse through her servers undisturbed? Bluffing, mind-games, strategy and secrecy are the existing aspects during the whole game. Every hit you receive, no matter what role you play, drains your resources and leaves you in agony to recover, as for victory to be achieved, it must be snatched from the teeth through sacrifices and last-minute twists.
