The critically acclaimed dystopian tech-noir roleplaying game Neurocity by Gavriel Quiroga is on Kickstarter; campaign goals met and with more than a month to go to fund a new edition.
The RPG is inspired by Alphaville, 1984, Dark City, Brave New World and THX1132, and Geek Native has some exclusive art to show below. Or you can skip straight to Kickstarter.
Neurocity helped launch Gavriel’s career, and I’m told the new edition will be pretty different. The Kickstarter lists three areas of improvement;
EXPANDED: With 15-20 more pages of art and pure content! Plus some rules adjustments. This means more nightmarish, existential, techno-horror for the whole family.
CORRECTED: With the help of my editor & plague doctor Walton Wood who will make sure my spanglish does not get in the way of legibility.
ENHANCED: Color corrections, layout tweakings and art upscaling that will take the book to its fullest potential, courtesy of the inmensely talented Laurie Gius, my Art Director.
The Kickstarter will fund a 145-page long 8.5 x 8.5 smythe-sewn hardcover, with 80# uncoated paper.

There’s just one tier in which backers will get a copy of Neurocity, and that’s limited. Only 2,000 copies of the limited edition Neurocity RPG have been unlocked so far.
So it goes. The cold wind carries the moaning of circuitry pressed against pulsing flesh. Suffocating it…and black coffee would not free me from the metallic aftertaste which has been lingering since wake. A curse. Carrying a much too heavy burden for an eternity; like Sysiphus, or something like that. Heard that one from a deranged epsilon while escorting him to Samsara for a lobotomy. Maybe he was right, but what does it matter? Stay focused. Stay functional. A memo arrives. Orders. Level 3 offense. Rioting in an air filtering facility. Summary execution of a Delta worker. The Grey District. I grab my peacemaker. More cold coffee. Cigarettes. ID.
Gavriel Quiroga estimates a delivery as early as June 2023.
