Early visitors to Lost in Cult’s funding campaign for Citizen Sleeper had a choice to make – pre-order a thing that might not be made or not. There was the promise of a refund if the project didn’t happen, but what would you do?
The £75,000 goal has been smashed, and the campaign wraps up at the start of July. It’s been an enormous success. An art book, a tabletop RPG, a vinyl record and other goodies are on offer. You can find out more and join the pre-order army over at the official Citizen Sleeper page.
Gareth Damian Martin’s personal experiences and Blades in the Dark, the RPG, inspire Citizen Sleeper. The game was a breakout RPG hit last year, including four BAFTAs, and this project now adds a solo tabletop RPG called Cycles of the Eye, an artbook, anniversary editions and tarot cards.
The deadline to secure the exclusives is July 2nd.
The next instalment in Lost in Cult’s premium series of design-focussed art books is here! Join us as we venture into the lawless reaches of a far-flung space station on the edge of interplanetary capitalism. This anniversary celebration of Citizen Sleeper comes in multifarious forms, with an official, high-end Design Works art book, an innovative new tabletop role-playing adventure, a beautiful vinyl record package, and many more extras besides.
The core Design Works book will highlight the incredible artistry of both the main game and its three DLC episodes (Flux, Refuge, and Purge). We’ll be zooming in on the details and minutiae of its art, discussing the game’s many influences and inspirations, and digging deep into ephemeral design processes with extended, developer-led captions, as well as key interviews and discussions with creator Gareth Damian Martin.
