In the cyberpunk future, when shady mega-corporations have the world in a chokehold, net-jackers and cyber-criminals make their living the only way they know how. Drex Hardline and his team of hackers, TekBunni and Terra-Flash, decide to break into the Cronos Biochem building intending to toss the company’s servers for corporate secrets that they can sell off for a quick payday. What they don’t know, however, is that Drex cut a deal with Mr. Q-Bit, President of Cronos’ Prisoner Rehabilitation program, selling out his two compatriots in exchange for a cushy job and a fresh start. Two years after their disastrous run, TekBunni has been uploaded to a time-dilated virtual prison where she’s serving three consecutive life sentences, and Terra-Flash, who was assumed dead after an explosion, has been replaced with a reprogrammed clone that is completely loyal to Cronos. When a scarred cyborg calling himself The Laughing Saint approaches Drex, now a VP working for Q-Bit, he’ll have to choose between his new life and the friends he betrayed to get it. Will these gritty anti-heroes get a second chance to make one last run? Listen to this unbelievably cyberpunk Fiasco to find out!
This Fiasco was created using the playset “Hard Wired,” by Alex Mayo. And as a special bonus, for those of you who have asked that we do so in the past, we recorded the character generation portion of the game, which can be found here.
